  1. SRC headcovers ate fantastic. I’ve never tried their putters, but the covers are for sure awesome.
  2. That is certainly an “attention grabbing” flatstick. I support the seller’s claim of “immediate positive roll”. I owned a Grace with that insert for a while and I’ve never used another putter since that makes the ball “stick” to the green and roll as quickly.
  3. No putter purchases all year??!! You are officially my idol. I blew so much money this year. Haha. The collection is, however, coming along and is in the slow process of being thinned out a little. Only problem is, I have three more “special” putters coming before the end of the year and I’m out of room on this rack. Yes…I’m a degenerate. Please don’t judge me too harshly.
  4. Me too. I’d love to see some pics of this one and hear your thoughts.
  5. I was debating between the cobra tec 2 hybrid (note: I love my cobra 3 and 4 one length utility irons) and the PXG 0317x 2 hybrid. I ended up going with the PXG because I liked the shape of the face better. I got a stiff riptide shaft and had it cut down one inch by PXG. I liked it when I got it but I struggled a bit with hooks and mishits because couldn’t feel the head that well in my swing. I weighed the head it and it was 6 grams under their reported 230g headweight on the website for that head, which I thought was weird. Anyway, I looked up the head weight for the proto 4 hybrid, which is one inch shorter than the 2 hybrid. That headweight is supposed to be 10 grams heavier, or 240g. I bought some PXG weights so I could make the 2 hybrid headweight 240g to match the one-inch cut-down shaft. I bought two 10g weights and swapped out the 2g blank weights on the toe and heel and left the 15g stock heavy weight in the back port and it weighed a cool 240g. So, I essentially distributed the extra 10g weights I bought evenly between the heel and toe and left the heavy weight in the rear port. It is officially the furthest and straightest hybrid I’ve ever hit…bar none. No snap hooks and my noticeable mishits stay on line. It’s getting to the point where I’m not sure hitting a driver makes sense anymore off the tee…you know…because I stink at hitting driver consistently straight… Veering back on course now…if this PXG Proto hybrid ever misbehaves, it is very very good to know that the cobra tec 2 hybrid is also a winner. Thank you sir.
  6. Woh. This is a nice one at a nice price with a great headcover.
  7. I’m 5’10” and used a 34” putter for the longest time. I switched to 35” 2 years ago and have putted better than ever, but it’s only because I practiced with a 35” putter a ton over the past 2 years. Don’t overthink it. Pick a length and practice with it and you’ll putt well.
  8. All of these suggestions are great, especially Bellum Winmore. If you crank it up another $100 or so it really opens up a lot of other sweet options. I’m partial to Lajosi, but TP Mills is also Grade A. This copper plated Lajosi is starting to patina nicely. Also, a BW CloverDude is included for your viewing pleasure. The Dude Abides.
  9. I have a PXG 0317x proto 2 hybrid (cut down an inch and weighted up) that does exactly what you want…but for some reason the ball lands 40-50 yards shorter for me on decent pokes. But I’m just a normal human being. You may get better results with your stellar swing speed. Seriously though, that 2 hybrid is wicked good for normal golfers.
  10. Tour is first pic. Widebody is second pic. I don’t know the exact head weight of the regular because I bought it secondhand, but I would guess in between the two. The widebody definitely feels heavier than the tour and the regular feels in between. Hope this helps.
  11. Here are some side-by-side pics of the 3 different Sensor models I own. They are all 4.5” long. The copper-plated one is the tour version with serrated v groove face milling and it is 1” wide. The satin one with the copper insert is the regular version with standard depth face milling and it is 1.1” wide. The salted caramel one is the widebody version with true spiral face milling and it is 1.25” wide.
  12. Looking for Seamus The Dude Blade Putter Cover.
  13. If you paid then no doubt yours is in the queue. He normally sends you a pic or two of the milled piece as an update after a month or so. He also will double check any etchings you want and confirm paint. Then you typically get one pic from one vantage point of your finished putter. Then you get your putter via DHL and it looks 50 times better than the pic he showed you. At least that’s how things have worked for me on my orders.
  14. I now do strictly one-piece plumbers necks putters; no welds. I’m pretty picky with how the plumbers neck is configured, and how the putter situates itself on the ground with respect to the shaft and hosel. I personally have yet to find a better “reasonably affordable” combination (note: with generally good resale value, which is an under-appreciated statistic for putter collectors) of playability, performance, and looks than my Lajosi putters. TP Mills is also up there at the top of my list for plumbers necks.
  15. I own two of those headcovers and they are super nice EP covers made of soft leather. It’s basically a premium Swag cover. The buyer will be very pleased with this purchase.
  16. These are the two I currently own. Sycamore and Nellie Wings.
  17. This is interesting. I’ve had a heritage PN, softtail PN, sycamore (flow and PN), Trad II XL PN, and Nellie Wings (flow and PN). The one I putted best with was the Nellie Wings PN. BTW your collection is incredible.
  18. I agree with @roundersmitty that deals can be found all the time; however, if I had to pick I would say Black Friday weekend or any PGA Major weekend. It seems like I always see deals on putters in both the boutique and big box markets.
  19. I’m no metals expert, but I wouldn’t use salt blended with anything to clean metal.
  20. That stitching is very nice. What’s the quality like? Is that real leather and what’s the enclosure? Magnet or Velcro?
  21. I use Ballistol. I spray a microfiber cloth with it and wipe the putter off before and after each round and it works great. My game used putters retain their minty quality. I could sell the copper insert Sensor I’ve used all season long as “new” if I was a d-bag.
  22. Yeah. The cavity also has this subtle spiral milling emanating out from the “L”. See below. The spiral is what makes the ball go in the hole.
  23. This is the putter I used on the course this season with really good results. So, naturally, I’ll switch to something else next season. Haha.
