UPDATE 4.15.15

 

GolfWRX,

 

I'm honored and humbled by what happened last night and what is going to happen today. When I started this thread in 2013 I was just a silly man recovering from knee surgery with a hope and a dream. You all helped that dream come true today. Today is a day that many said would never come. It is here and we are poised to reap the benefits.

 

Thank you for proving my belief that this thread and website is the finest collection of gear enthusiasts on the planet.

 

Today is 4.15.15. Today is the day they #ReleaseThePutter.

 

Thank you and Good Luck

 

4.15.15 there will be a limited release of The RORS 006 Limited Edition putter.

Second...

 

Nike,

 

We love that your products are inspired by your athletes. Instead of engineers making the player play your products, you make things they want to play. You use their feedback. We know the 006 Method Midnight was inspired by Paul Casey. Now we ask you to make one inspired by your players like RORS and Nick Watney.

 

We are tired of other companies selling us putters that look and feel the same. We believe in Method technology. We want the perfect blend of gorgeous design and new technology.

 

A limited run of putters from the Oven? a mass production? Many of us will buy one, or two! We only ask that you make it. Interchangeable weights? Sure, that could be nice. Your Mod series is gaining a following. Your method tech is gaining a following.

 

Convert more of us to this tech. Give us that final reason to put you in our bags. Let GolfWRX know that Nike listens to the most fanatical golfing community on earth!

 

In other words...Just Do It.

 

-WLDCHLD22 a member of GolfWRX

 

 

 

 

#ReleaseThePutter

 

Team RORS,

 

If it doesn't happen by the Masters that's ok. We will continue asking Nike and it will happen. I have faith in Nike; I do.

 

When I started this thread I was hoping Nike would realize that they are a giant and can be if they wanted to. Those guys at the Oven are artists and innovators. Look at what they did for Pure and Cota!

 

There is a market for premium Nike putters. I want em and you want em.

 

Argue what can be done and what can't but I know this... After this happens we will post our tricked out Rory sticks and keep this thing going. Rors is a beast and Method putters are as well.

 

Are we fanboys? I think we are beyond that point. Whether you love Nike or Rors this putter has captured our imaginations. I love watching this dude play and drain putts. I love the innovation in Nike putters.

 

A beautifully shaped head that is timeless and loved. A new technology that works and doesn't detract from the aesthetic beauty of that beloved head shape. An amazing player who might be a once in a generation talent.

 

All this makes for an amazing product that we can't wait to get our hands on. An amazing thread on the greatest golfing site on the interwebs. This is going to happen and when it does you'll know that they did...

Thanks man! I did the same today and they said they had one more no sightline putter in stock! I grabbed it right away...no headcover though. They cut it to 34" for me and installed an Origin grip as

Mod-90 is the one putter I always wanted to try.

My 10 year old son rolls a Method from the Oven and refuses to change putters. He was a putter ho for awhile and kept bouncing between several until he convinced me to cut this down for him and he has

agreed. If they want to/can merge the threads then so be it. I had a tough time just starting the new thread which made me think it's traffic related, but then when I would go to the original I would get an error quite often.

Believe it or not I filed early. I was hoping to store those funds for a new toy. A shiny new putter looking type toy.

Could we expect to be $450 like the TGW price? Price for me isn't an issue, just would be better if we knew exactly.

I may make room among the Scottys or even sell one to pick up this one. Hopefully I'm more successful than I was with TGW.

Agreed. In my mind I just always guessed $1k for something like this. I wonder if TGW had to cancel orders due to incorrect prices as well?

No I wish I as clairvoyant. I'd play lotto then!

A few of the Oven visitors like Pure and Cota said something about a possible spring release when they did their recaps. In fact the Pure quote was in the title for awhile. If I learned anything in 124 pages it was that the 006 head is hard to make which means expensive!

My anniversary dinner cost me almost as much as the putter. I bought a new driver, spikes and all that. Spring time is usually expensive for me. Can't say I filed early just for putter money even though I was being tempted to finally splurge on a full custom from Machine or Betti.

Agreed. I think we are all so high on adrenaline right now sticker shock can't effect us.

For me I look at it as an investment as my button back has never left me. I paid $500+ when it released and it has always been my main putter. I like my mm008 and mm006 but when money was on the line the BB was in the bag.

Compared to the money I've wasted on drivers and shafts the putter is a sound investment for me. Thankfully I've never been a putter collector.

If it makes you feel any better, I have a shaft in one of my putters that cost more than this Nike one that is about to be released :)

Woah! Who makes that?

Any experience with the UST frequency filter putter shaft? I must admit that at 6'1 I'm going to have to extend this thing if it really is only available at 34.5"
[/quote]

I have tried one of those. It's a different feeling, that's for sure. Call me old school, but I still prefer just a regular old steel shaft in mine. I will have to lengthen this thing as well as I play a 36" putter. I'll probably just pull the shaft and put in a whole different shaft and just save the one that comes with this putter, whatever it is.

I did that with my BB. Saved the original putteelr shaft and lengthened it through Scotty. I dream of a House of Franklin putter service. I want a shaft sticker that says Oven Baked!
[/quote]

Another easy fix is the shaft extenders through GolfWorks. Just pull the grip, pop the extender in (you don't even need a solvent, although it calls for it) and then pop the grip back on. Works great and is easy to remove should you ever want to take the extender out.
