Very nice, love a flat cavity like that where its seamless to the topline. Short plumbers is cool as well, less toe hang than a traditional plumbers neck or more? I like the idea of the 3 same shapes with 3 different faces for different feels.

It’s got roughly the same toe hang as a traditional length plumbers neck. I showed a pic of these to another putter aficionado I know a while back and he said he thought the shorter plumbers neck would yield a lot of toe hang. It doesn’t though (it’s 37 degrees). I’m not sure the exact design principle behind it, but I do know BW putters were designed to balance on or very very close to the sweet spot. I don’t know how much this matters after it’s shafted up, but I do feel like the balance on my 707i is spot on.

My new package of BW putters just arrived. The rainbow torch on this stainless Donny is pretty sick, so I figured I’d share. The pics don’t really do it justice. I’m not sure how he torches stainless to rainbow it like this, but it’s pretty slick with a black shaft. It also has a really nice sound/feel for a smaller putter.

Not sure if anyone has interest, but I’ll post pics of the other ones I bought when I get a chance.

Always liked the appearance of these heads.  
 

Is their logo a two-scoop ice cream Sunday?

It’s a lazy cold Saturday morning in Pittsburgh and I was messing around with some indoor putting. I figured I’d share some pics of the torch job on the 787 compared to the torch job on the TP Mills Nellie Wings. They’re kind of similar and I thought it was cool to compare the two under some natural cloudy light. If you enjoy collecting putters like I do, then it’s always neat to see different maker’s putters up close next to each other.

He made me my shipment of awesome putters from his leftover heads and it sounds like @nosil went the same route I did with his 787, which also turned out awesome.

 

I’m not sure if he’s totally back up and running, but I did ask him about possibly sending my other 707i back to him for some hand grinding and softening to take off some weight and he said he’d do it. If I do that, I’d probably also have him torch it; especially now that I’ve seen more of his stainless torches and they are apparently all pretty wicked. I’m still debating.

Thank you. I had looked for his website and  reviewed what I could find on social media and there hadn’t been activity for quite some time. Thought I was missing something. 
 

I do agree, the torching I’m seeing looks stellar.

Wow! That is bad a**. I love my 787. The torch on that one is sick. I really like those colors. What shaft and grip are you going with?

 

Thanks.  I liked the basis 787 shape but it was too long, edges were a little sharp, and heavy. Cut it down about 1/4" so it us under 4" heel to toe and now weights 345g.  Here is a comparison of stock to my ground model

I am going Black shaft but haven't decided on grip.  I typically do superstrokes but this may required something special.  The only thing I would say I am a little disappointed about is that he doesn't have covers;  I like to match my covers to the putter.   Guess I will have to find something special there too.

Not really.  He is working with leftover inventory.  He has been selling them via ebay,  but got in touch with him outside to get something specific done.   Tim has been great to work with and I am excited.

Shaving that 787 down makes the size and weight awesome. Cool thing is the balance stays perfect even after grinding it down. At least it did on mine.
 

His black shafts are awesome. I’m not sure what brand they are, but they are gloss and seem to have a “torched” look to them. It’s hard to explain, but it’s different than the black shafts on my Mack Made and Lajosi. It looks more premium to me, but who knows? They could be the same shaft just different finishes. 

Let us know what you decide on. I’m curious to see the end product. 
 

I’m also hoping he starts back up and offers some new shapes. I’d do another custom with him if he does.

This dude is killing me with his eBay posts. Last thing I need is another BW putter, but man is this “winner/runner-up” finish nice. The fact that it’s a one-piece and flat-faced is so cool. If anyone on Golfwrx buys this, please post some additional pics in the sunlight and some really good closeups of the face.

I keep in touch with Tim and he shared some pics of a build he’s doing. I thought it was cool because you can see the hand work that went into it before the final finishing and cleanup is done.

I suspect the more popular boutique guys (Mills, Byron, Lajosi, Mann, etc.) also do tons of stuff like this, but I usually never get to see any pics of it in progress.
 

I saw a little from Lamont during a build (specifically a video of him grinding a wave with a belt sander into the flange of an MA/99, which was cool as f***; and a pic of the torched head being cooled in oil, which was pretty slick...pun intended).
 

I didn’t see much from Kari (just saw fresh mill pics, then the final product).
 

Josey showed me the milling and software designing in progress, and some other really cool stuff along the way...like the neck welding.
 

Just highlighting the fun nature of boutique custom builds. Ever wonder why people blow a bunch of money on these boutique putters? Well, because the process is fun to see unfold.
