My new Neads
« on: December 30, 2016, 06:45:12 AM »
Hi guys,

I want to share with you the last two putters that my friend Gene has just built for me.

Both are in pure copper with pure sterling silver insert and have 375 grams head weight. The Mini was milled using CNC and has a SS neck. The 888 was all handmade. I have no words to describe them...so, enjoy the pictures.

As I putter collector, the only thing I can say is that if you do not have a Nead putter you need find a way to have one! ;)

I wish to you all a 2017 full of health, happiness and success.

Very nice!  Gene's work is always a work of art.  So much skill to his craft.

Luri,

On your copper, what face mill is that for the putting area.  Can you post a close up please?

Hi Liongolf,

I have two copper putters from Nead. The Mini has vertical milling face and the 888 has a diamond milling face. Both have pure silver inserts.
In this link you can see some of the faces milling that Gene offers (but I believe he can make different faces milling if you ask): https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CzrIXcuUUAEunRS.jpg

Silver inserts?!  Wow!  What is the feel like?

The pure silver insert is very soft, a little softer than copper. Gene told me that the copper body with silver insert is the softer putter that he can make. I have several copper putters, but the Nead Mini with the silver insert is my favorite on performance and feeling. The silver face cost a little bit more, but I recommend.

Thanks luri, if the silver is softer than copper, it may not be for me.  I think too soft robs feel and I do find solid copper is the softest that I'd go.  The silver looks fab though!

I have a silver insert on my Mokume Gane and it is by far the softest I own. Can't say enough good things about it.

Luri,

You're selling your mini on eBay already?

Mine is custom but the milling on its face is different. On the picture that I posted Nead did not have engraved the "Nead custom putter" yet. He engraved after the pictures.
