The season will be close to over regardless. I'm fine with it, as long as it's right the first time.

The 2 putters I'm waiting on 1 I may get to play a few rounds with, the other maybe unlikely.

 

Going to start another one to have it by opening round next year in April

I figured I'd toss some money at Byron. Bettinardi's response times have gotten worse so I pulled the trigger else where. Excited to have something other than a HIVE putter!

Can't wait to see it, I want a Byron in my collection again but not sure if I'd want another DH89. I'm going to hold out until the 620 comes in LH.

I’m pretty sure he can make whatever you want.  It’s just that special orders take more time.  I have one or two long pipes.  I think a slant neck could be similar depending on how it’s bent.  This one is set up for a face balanced putter.

@JCL’s Byron collection is unreal. 

Yes it is.  I am both awestruck and inspired.  Time for another "family portrait" next time I get a chance to take some pics.  

 

JCL's Dakine pictured is a great flatstick.  I'm still looking for a Dakine rockpile, regular or mini.  Johnny Hines ("Scooterdog" over at PT - RIP) used to have one of those among his amazing collection of Byrons, Mills and others.

Just got my Tiffany “Rickie” replica but I’m a bit annoyed and perplexed about the small font size of the cavity stamp. Emailed Steve to see if anything can be done.

Beautiful putter - which model is it? And I really like the stampings too.

Though much is taken much abides;
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Love all these great Byrons, especially the rare, cool shapes of the Dakines, DBCMs, Channel Islands, etc.  Here’s a new 620 just received from the shop - carbon mid-pipe with polished black PVD.  Nicely softened with minimal stamps/paint.  Let’s see what else is out there…..

This last one came in about 2 months.  I think we started talking about it at the end of July/early August.  Arrived about Oct 1...  

 

As people have said, lead-times are usually driven by the finish selected and Byron's "batch process" with vendors when the finish requires outsourcing.  For the black armor PVD, he uses a local shop as I understand it and maybe that keeps the time lag down....

Does Byron do his own welding or send that work to someone else?

The Byron's I've ordered were all stock heads (no welding) with media blast finish (done by Byron) so lead time was always relatively fast 2 to 4 weeks.

The Byron's I've ordered were all stock heads (no welding) with media blast finish (done by Byron) so lead time was always relatively fast 2 to 4 weeks.  

 

As far as I know he does all of the work himself.  He's put on multiple necks for me (I am not a plumber's neck fan), bent a few others (cold bend, hot bend) and has done all manner of other custom work.  Most these projects were talked through with him first and had a lot of detailed requests (curvature of neck, offset, toe-hang, kick-back, etc.).  I can't imagine that being done by someone else without the benefit of the direct conversation... 

 

BTW, what I love about Byron is that he's one of the few who will work on refinish, renovation, rehabilitation efforts in addition to selling new (only on his product, however).  I think he enjoys seeing some of the old classic models as they come back through the shop again
