2011 Test Panel #4 - Try the putter that Byron games...
« on: February 11, 2011, 12:23:57 PM »
OK, for anyone who has wondered what is in Byron's bag here's your chance to roll the putter that Byron puts into play on the course.  We call it the SPUD.  Sign up here if you'd like to try the SPUD.  BTW, these putters are available in 303 stainless and Aluminum Bronze, and there may be a Damascus Spud in Byron's shop too.  The test putter will be the stainless version with either 1 or 3 lines on the flange (group decision).  For those that don't know, while this model is a centershaft it has a 4:00 toe-hang.
 
Enjoy the pictures of the one of the 3 Damascus Spuds that were made.  8)

Would love to try this model.  I have a Rife trinidad that is similar but not a Morgan.

Byron's gamer is sweeeeet.  I remember being amazed that a centershafted putter could have so much to hang!  Too cool.

Looks like we have 5 for sure and a maybe.  I'd like to have at least one more tester.  If we get 8 testers, we'll make the test putter an AlBz model!  8)

I'd love for it to be an AlBz model.  I've always been curious regarding the feel of it.  Heard nothing but good things...

Dave,

     Any chance of an offset neck? 

     Guys I have an Al/Br, I think you'll like it.  Was a little hard getting past the fact you think it should be face balanced.  Once you do it feels great!

Out of curiosity, are there finishes that can or are put on AlBz putters or are they left raw?  Any threads or pics dedicated to AlBz putters that have come out of Byron's shop?

Byron might be able to torch AlBz.  Other than that, not sure you'd want or need to do anything else.

It does develop a nice patina over time as well. I know you can heat the head to speed the process so I can't see why it wouldn't be able to be torched

Byron is backed up with orders right now, so there's been a delay on this one.  Keep the faith though, this one is going to happen!  :)

Hey Guys,

     Here's some pics of a used Al/Br that I picked up from a member here.  Originally had a patina, not sure if aged or applied.  It also had a darker finish/coating on the face and bottom.  I removed the patina, and tried to get as much of the coating as possible.  I did leave some of the coating on the face.  It was also torched a little.

Waiting on Byron to have some time to make this.  There's a LH stainless DH89 ahead of it.
