Artisan Love?!?!


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

John was a pleasure to work with. Was amazed by the willingness and enthusiasm to customize beyond what was even listed as options on his website to make a turky one of a kind prototype. The entire experience is as close to tour treatment as you can get. IMO, his use of multi material design makes his putter the most underrated and highest performing custom putters on the market. Every other will make you something cosmetically unique and beautiful. However, while Johns putters are cool looking in their own right, unlike his competitors, they are built most precisely to perform specifically for you. Incredible experience. Cannot wait to build a few more with him in the future.

I had a driver fitting the other day over in Dallas.  Little one man shop that really has got it going on.  He can fit your entire bag - woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, putters.  He fits for Bettinardi and Piretti putters- not your cheaper putter manufacturers by far.

When I got there the owner took a look at my bag, saw my Artisan wedges, and asked about my putter.  I told him it was Artisan as well as I took off the head cover and handed it to him.  He grinned, walked over to the putting wall, and grabbed his gamer.  He fits Bettinardi and Piretti, but he putts Artisan.

My putter is an 0920 head.  His was an 0217.  The builds were completely different but the feel of a well struck putt was EXACTLY the same on each putter.  His putter was more upright than mine so I had to modify my stroke a little, but if I had been blindfolded I would have known by the feel of the strike I was putting an Artisan.

Yes.  They are that good.  And I've got a hankering for that 0217 head now... dang it...

Should be there company tagline. 
 

Funny, the road that lead to Artisan began w Bettinardi. Went to their Studio B to do a custom build. Fitting was underwhelming. Head and neck options limited, but paint and stamp options abound. 
 

Took a broad and deep approach to the custom putter world and landed at Artisan. They are truly unique in the market.

I experienced a three hour fitting with John on Sep 3 - learned a lot during the fitting, including the old school way to putt - think Brad Faxon/Stan Utley - it's less mechanical, more athletic and even with my non-fitted putter, distance control is much improved as I wait for my putter - an 0519 in old school satin finish -- should be finished soon.

 

John has a great eye, even got me into a lighter head that will help me take the club back more smoothly and quickly. The heavier heads do not fit me as they do others.

 

During my fitting, the milling put a roll on the ball that was impressive, had putts that with other putters would have turned left and the Artisan kept the line better than my other putters. I was in awe.

This is literally my dream scenario! I want to try and go through this process this year. I travel to Texas several times a year and need to make a quick jaunt up to Ft. Worth.

The whole experience at Artisan is amazing; the staff Are all so nice. Even just swinging by to get some work done is done quickly and with a great chat from John or other guys there.

 

My putter is now I the three years old and going no where; funny when John saw it last he was shocked how good condition it still was. My wedges are 1.5 years old and still going strong after two re blasts; I hope they last the year but we will see plus I have moved from Texas to Scottish links so my wedges are not set up perfectly but in all honesty so far I have not seen a fault.

 

My dad has wedges and a putter and he is equally enjoying his as much as I do(he has links grind wedges).

It is a beauty!  How much toe hang with that neck?

Looking at ordering another putter from John.  Like that neck on a OG 0217 head, but need it to be pretty much face balanced.  May have to stick with a long plumber's neck.

Love it, is that their 0120 or 0117? I like their blade shape but the older models are razor thin for a blade, the updated are more on the "Normal" side.

0117. It is pretty thin. But nice and heavy! 365 at 33”

 

Yeah I'd definitely prefer the wider one but that's still really nice, I need to eventually go down to Ft. Worth and get one of these fit to me.

With regards to the 0117 vs the 0120; does anyone know approx. just how much longer in blade length and width the 0120 is over the 0117? Curious all the subtle differences between these two...

Just got off the phone with John going through my putter specs.  Excited to see what he creates for me. This will be a heirloom putter for the future kids I don’t want 🤣
