Oh baby!  Daddy like...  Byron that is a stunning new design.  Love the pocket on those!  Ryan, as always you slayed it with the graphics/artwork!

I know mine is still in production, just heard from EA with a question on what I was looking for in the neck design. Trying to forget about it so that I can sleep at night, but I'm really excited for this one.

Here's a couple update pics of my B-17.  Got these from Byron today.  I am really excited for this thing!  Now I need to find a new way to forget about this thing so that I can get back to work.

Wow...that head cover is the bomb too just quietly.

Yours looks pretty wide bodied Pwood.  Which cavity design is it mate?

I went with the Secrets profile.  I think the wide body appearance is just the camera angle.  If you look at the top line views Eddie posted, it looks to be a very normal blade width to me.

Looking really good mate.  Yes I agree the address pics from Eddie's post look to be pretty standard top line & flange width.  The photo of the base of yours looked a little wider and I guess I was hoping it was.  I tend to putt better with a wide bodied or mid mallet putter.

Looking forward to the finished pics!

Where are all the pictures of finished B-17s???  Give 'em up boys...  There have to be at least some new ones out there in people's hands at this point.  'Certain people' who are thinking about ordering new ones are waiting to see what they look like finished.....

I have mine but will post pictures once I get done doing some modifications to the paint and finish.  Initial thoughts are the putter is a great design, looks really confident at address and has excellent feel. 

FYI: the bomb stamps are very cool, have 2 in the cavity.

OK arrived yesterday been real busy here are a few pix specs 72/3/35 about 4 toe hang 3/4 offset 345 grams.
Feels incredible!  ;D
This is Secrets head, and yes it does seem wide for a blade, but in a very GOOD way!

Thanks, Rob, appreciate the pics.  That's gorgeous.  Stainless??  Looks awfully beefy to be only 345G, especially with the long neck....  Must be the rounded corners on the Secrets version.

Enjoy!!!

Sweet looking stick and cover Rob!  The more I look at the Betweens, the more it calls my name.  Have to stop looking as it's too tempting.

Thanks, guys!
I had one of the old in betweens, but it was face balanced and I couldn't swing it right....
This one is a goody and I always wanted one of the old secrets...... 8)
I was contemplating the pocket, but I am now falling in love with it.....

Got a little silly on the Bomb stamps but the blue I requested just didn't look right so I googled what the real B-17 bombs looked like.  They were dark green with yellow stripes so I settled on black with sorta yellow stripe.

 It's a fun putter and can see dropping some bombs with it for sure!
