Q.  What models of putters do you have?

A.  We currently have the following models available:

** 006 **
 
An anser 2-style, cnc-milled in one piece from a solid billet, engineered with the sweet-spot (center of gravity) inline with the center of the pocket.  We currently have the 006 available in 11L17 carbon steel in a variety of finishes.  The headweight is approx. 355g +/- 1g without a sound slot and approx. 350-351g with a sound slot.

** 007 **
 
A Scottsdale anser-style, cnc-milled in one piece from a solid billet, engineered with the sweet-spot (center of gravity) inline with the center of the pocket.  We currently have the 007 available in 11L17 carbon steel in a variety of finishes.  The headweight is approx. 355g +/- 1g without a sound slot and approx. 350-351g with a sound slot.

** 007 TCB **
 
A Scottsdale anser-style, cnc-milled in one piece from a solid billet of Tellurium Copper, engineered with the sweet-spot (center of gravity) inline with the center of the pocket.  The 007 TCB is a limited production run of less than 50 pieces, and we currently have only a few left.  The headweight is approx. 365g +/- 1g (without sound slot) and approx. 360g with sound slot.

Putter Models in the works:

** 007X  CUSTOM**

The 007 head shape which has been designed and cnc-milled without a neck to accomodate a variety of custom-welded necks.  We are waiting on the completion of the neck parts and should be up and running with these soon.

** Craftsman Series **
We are starting a periodic series of putters that showcase the craft of putter-making.  Not true hand-mades, but these custom crafted putters will have extensive grinding and milling operations and welded hosels.

The first putter in the craftsman series is going to be a TPAXVIII-style mallet.

** Channel Islands **
The Channel Islands is a new design for a heel-toe weighted, high-MOI mid mallet with traditional styling. 

We always have things in the works, we will announce more soon.

Q. What is the Twilight Zone face milling like?
« Reply #2 on: October 07, 2007, 03:22:17 PM »
Q. What is the Twilight Zone face milling like?

A. The twilight zone face milling is designed to produce a very flat decorative putter face.  The pattern made by the cnc-milling machine appears to be "holographic" (three dimensional) but ONLY when the putter is held to catch the reflections of light at a certain angle. 

The face milling pattern is not visible from address, and it could be buffed out if you would like no milling marks at all.

How are Byron putters made?
« Reply #3 on: October 08, 2007, 03:35:15 PM »
Q. How are Byron putters made?

A. All Byron putters are milled, manufactured and assembled in the USA.  Our shafts come from True Temper and are also made in America, the head covers are from AM&E and also made in America.

Materials:

For carbon steel putters Byron uses 11L17 low carbon steel.

For stainless steel, he generally uses 303 American Stainless Steel ( It's a fine piece of A S S).  There are also some german stainless steel Byron putters being done for export only.

For the tellurium copper billet (TCB) putters we use C14500

Unless you see a welded neck (or a true handmade that has been hand-milled by Byron), Byron putters are CNC-milled in one piece from billets, as shown below:

Q. Can you describe the the differences in feel between carbon steel and solid copper?

A.  Feel is inherently subjective.  Feel may be described differently from person to person. Copper is a softer material than carbon steel, and copper tends to vibrate when struck at higher frequencies, so it can make a higher pitched sound. 

For a review of carbon and copper versions of Byron putters, please see JR's great thread here: http://www.puttertalk.com/community/index.php/topic,1907.0.html

Hello everyone, my buddy has a John Byron putter.  Its reads "DALE HEAD 9" on the back and "NEW NINE 1999" on the face.  The putter head itself is smaller than normal.  Anyways i love the feel of the putter and it sets up nice and square so im thinking about buying it, however i cant find this exact putter anywhere on the internet.  Im not sure how much to offer him so if anyone could help me out with a price to offer him id appreciate it.  Also, the condition of the putter is fair.  It has the original shaft and doesnt have any dings or bends just the usual wear and tear.  THANKS ALOT- Ian

Dale Head 9 is a 9 cm long putter made by Byron.  I believe he still has a few in manganese bronze and perhaps stainless.  Contact Byron at Byron@byronputters.com

They are not expensive.

Is there a thread with pictures to all the putter models that is currently available? Wanted to know just so I can compare different heads and necks of Byron Morgon putters, also the various kinds of finishing and material used.

Thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction.

The question is can Ryan make more money wearing the helmet cam to the gentlemen's club (he'd have to charge for that live feed - 1-900-GIRLSOFHB), or being paid by his fellow gentlemen not to wear it.  8)

The thought of wearing a helmet cam to a "gent's club" cracks me up. The thought of bringing my putter to a gentlemen's club to pose it with girls for funky sounds like a headcover idea.
