My B-17 Bomber is Here
« on: October 02, 2017, 03:57:35 PM »
Just got back from picking her up at Byron's shop.  It was my first time visiting the shop, and it was a pleasure to meet Byron and see where the magic happens.  I rolled the putter a few times while I was there, and I love it.  The putter is 35"/345G in GSS.  Bryon was able to create a new style of neck for me as I really wanted a slant neck, but did not want the hosel over the shaft.  I really like like so far and can't wait to get it out.  I had to run back to the office, so these pictures aren't the best.  I'll try to get some better shots when I get home tonight.

I like that neck. Slant neck meets rincon.

That neck is awesome.  Byron has mad skills.  Just another day at the office for Byron...  We are in awe!

Here are some more pictures.  I’ve been rolling it on my backyard green and am really pleased so far.  This thing has a really nice soft feel to it and a relatively muted sound.  I’m not sure if it’s just this configuration, but I putt best when I’m making aggressive rolls, so the feel fits me perfectly.  There is a little less toe hang than I initially hoped for, but I have quickly adjusted to it.  The toe hang ended up about half of the hang my DH89 (plumbers neck) has.  I don’t have a picture of it, but will try to get some comparison pictures with my DH89.  Below are more pictures. 

The only thing I might change on this is the paintfill.  I'm never positive on my paintfill selections until I've seen the final product.  Thinking about going with multicolor dots on the cavity snow and maybe the dancing Byron Morgan on the sole.  We'll see.  Best part is that I can always change it back. 

If anybody wants a picture from a different angle, let me know.

Life's been crazy, so I'm just getting back to posting this picture now.  Here is a toe hang compassion to my DH89.  I also threw up a new address picture with out the shadows that the last one had.  Great putter so far.  Hoping to get it out on the course this week.
