This was the body from one 612 putter with a left over 612 neck from another.

Inspired by Mr. Doug's 007 from years ago (mixed metals Hi-Beam) and Carl Spackler's recent Bombora.

     Ryan,

     Nice putter!  I'm really liking that Blue Oil Carbon head w/ Stainless Neck!  As usual, nice work Byron!

Check out this beauty shot!
I just got back from the first practice session with it and it's fantastic. It's lighter than my Mindless, so as Bruce educated me on the release does feel a little easier through impact. Couple that with the lighter head weight, and I typically got more distance with this 612 over the Mindless on long lag putts. It basically turned into the best first practice session with a putter that I have ever had.

When the clouds roll in the colors really pop! Under normal sun light the neck is more stainless color and the purple hues look lighter. This static picture really captures that moment because as I turn it in my hands the colors are basically changing with every new angle.

Ryan,

This putter looks beautiful and is exactly what I'm going for!

What is the face milling pattern called?

It's the standard face milling for 612 -- I think it's sort of a mid-depth milling. My Mindless and Bombora's are deeper while my DH89s are much more fine.

Thanks!  I'm a huge fan of that bi-metal look.

Lol... I love that putter. It might be favorite in my collection. I have one exactly like it with a damascus next and slightly more offset that it competes against for the top spot.
