Tell me about the Miz-Betts
« on: August 08, 2007, 06:49:19 AM »
I keep seeing this 1L17L? alloy used on the C "Mizunardi's".

Someone enlighten me. I have one on the way.

Maybe a typo?  Think it's 11L17.  Alloy that is free machining with lead content.

a good thing, too ... I don't know if I would consider having a putter serviced by anyone other than a geek. :)

I have to agree with you Morris :) I never really noticed until he answered that question. I put it through the Japanese translator but it didn't compute :P

Considering that George is probably Italian (just a guess), a Latin translator may have been more appropriate! :rotfl:

Ok, Chris, now you just made my head hurt. :(

I think I understand the 3rd line: "George is a putter god."  :)

Now that we have established the hierarchy of putter geeks, can someone give me the  lowdown on this alloy?

Not sure what else you are looking for.  11L17 is a low carbon steel that has lead added to improve machinability.  It is going to be a very common carbon steel that is used in putters.

Thanks. I looking for feedback on feel and durability as well versus the other I presume some sort of 10xx type that was used before.
