Indeed, both ferrule and face action is strong with this one!

Actually, looking again, it seems that Gene has his hands on a Straight Line Engine for the face.
How cool would that be!

Thanks gents!  The ferrule looks very sharp. Can't wait to see the SRC built cover for it with Gene's old fire suit too. Should be brilliant.

Not sure what a Straight Line Engine would do but Gene called this a basket weave mill IIRC.

Putter came in today and it's everything I was wanting and more. The firesuit cover is also top notch. Gonna spend some quality time on the putting green with it tomorrow and hopefully try and get out and play on Friday. Here are some pics.

Very nice.  Can we get a close-up of the face milling, and a description of what pattern it is and how it was done??

Congrats!!

Gene called it a basket weave mill. Not sure how he did it. I just asked for a unique mill. Here are a couple close ups.

Great looking combo there. If my eyes don’t mistake me that is one of the covers that Scott (and Emma) made for Gene from one of his old race suits.

Some of SRCs best covers in my opinion. Gene’s putters massively impress me.
TM M1 430 10.5° with Project X HZRDUS Black 62g 6.0
TM M1 3HL 17° Accra SE80 M4 (Stiff)
Adams ProMini 18° Aerotech HLS880 F4
Ping S55 White Dot  4-PW KBS Tour S
SCOR 4161 wedges 49/53/58 KBS Stiff

Spent a good bit of time on the putting greens today and really impressed. The AlBz has a very unique feel to it that I can't explain effectively. I'm enjoying it so far.

Yes, it's Scott's build on the cover and probably the best cover I've ever had.

That is one bad a$$ putter!  Gene's creativity knows no bounds.

AlBz is my favorite putter material.  I love the sound of it.

Thanks guys. Taken it out to the putting green 3 times already and so much to like about this. Had some minor adjustments with it but has been a pretty smooth transition and my distance control has been  spot on.

Been trying to figure out how to explain the sound of it. The best way I can think of is a "tlock" sound like when you smack your tongue off of the roof of your mouth. Nothing overly audible but very subtle.
