I was introduced to Byron on Putter Talk and went down the custom boutique putter road because of this site. I always wanted to get his Bombora blade but never did. I remember a guy named Eddy who had a number of his great putters who acted as somewhat of a liaison.  He was one of the greats in the boutique putter business and most of his peer group with the exception of Gene Nead - continue to make great putters today (LaMont, Mills, Lajosi and Lumpy)

Does anyone here have insights on the "029X Copper" pls (the model with sound slot)? eg weight of putter head, desirability, etc? 

Would ~US$260 be a fair purchase price, in this condition?

 

 Saw on another Byron thread that the SS model for the "029" is approx 365grams ie slightly heavier than "normal" and was mainly sold in Japan?

(Linked here and below ... thanks @fharbist for the earlier comments!)

For $260, buy it and run.  That's a steal in my opinion.

Copper plated carbon = my guess too … but not 100% sure hence the question I posted here earlier today

 

Byron made a few TCB models back in the day.  Not sure on this one though.

Pretty sure it is but you can check it with a magnet. If the magnet sticks it’s copper plated (carbon), if the magnet isn’t attracted to it it’s a tcb (copper billet)

thanks @Jace_bkr ... good suggestion.  i've just tried it with some super-strong magnets ... and there was no magnetic attraction whatsoever to this Byron 029X Copper.

 

(the magnets did stick furiously to my Ken Giannini carbon putter & were a struggle to pull apart!)

sounds like you hit a home run and snagged a tcb for $260

Byron was a friend for over 25 years, yet I never shook his hand or sat down and had a beer.  I found some random photos and will post more of them soon, here for you guys to see.  These came after the split between John Ortega and Byron.  Long story, but Byron treated me very right on this package of putters.

@golfluvzme thanks for sharing these!

 

That "MO-T" (with the 3 copper(?) circles ) always catches my eye... Decent putter?

Byron was one of the very best people in the golf industry.  For those of us who can call him friend we are truly blessed.  LaMont, you're also one of the terrific people in golf.

First time posting pics of this putter.  I have had this sitting in a staff bag in the closet for years.  This is the only putter I have ever seen Byron make with a round pipe neck, and a welded hosel cup on top.  It also has what Byron called the "Flying W" face milling.  This one definitely has some unique features.

Both phenomenal. 

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.
- Lord Tennyson
