Refreshed BB-8
« on: March 01, 2018, 10:03:36 PM »
Been loading up on the Byrons lately, but wanted to give a shout-out to the folks at Bettinardi in Tinley Park.  They helped me refresh this BB-8 recently and I really like the way it came out.  Beautiful long flow neck with the knurling at the top...  Also, a fresh fly-cut face milling...

Thanks very much, boys!!  I would really love it if Bettinardi did more flow necks.

Looks sweet ! Was that the original neck or did they add the knurled flow neck for you ? How do you like the face milking?

Yes, the Bettinardi folks (tour department) did the neck and the face milling.  Originally, this was a one-piece plumber's neck.  On the milling, there was a thread on here or the other forum about people's impressions of Bettinardi milling options (fly-cut, honeycomb, FIT).  I like the fly-cut as a nice change.  I also have no problem with the honeycomb milling (especially on carbon), although some people feel it is a little too jumpy.

Thats awesome and the putter looks great. I have a special treat arriving tomorrow that has fly mill so I am glad to hear your thoughts on that!
