Spot the differences game.
« on: August 23, 2011, 04:25:57 PM »
How well do you know Byron putters?

Six Byron Design putters. Can you spot the differences and which ones are the same model? Of the various models pictured they may look much like each other, but Byron has designed very interesting distinct playing differences for each. Can you describe them?

EDIT: and the winner is Drew! His prize is a flat brim hat... :P

Now that I see those, I'm not sure I can tell the difference between a 006 and a 007 from address.  Other than the 89, the others all look like the same basic head design.  The different finishes are throwing me off a little though.

Ok I suck.  But dont the 007 have a considerably longer heel bumper?  I know the heel on the 007 is much more of a rounded line vs. the straight angled line on the 006.

I'll go with:  006 PVD? -> 611 Torched Stainless -> DH89 Bead Blast -> Mindless -> ?? -> ??

Honestly, I can't tell what the last two look like because the bumpers don't seem to match the style of the 007/711 and the 006 and 611 are already included.

Follow the heel side topline down to the heel side bumper. Also, pics are slightly all at different angles, but find the offset amount of each.

I can't wait to find out what they are!

There's nothing too new in the pic. I put the pics together because I wanted to see how they compare. When I zoom in and draw lines in photoshop I see a few differences that I like in a gamer to come.

And.... TELL HIM WHAT HE'S WON, Don Pardo!

Differences:  006 has the sloping rear tail, with the neck set further back toward the heel.

Mindless: neck moved closer to the pocket, slight change in shape to the tail as a result

DH-89 thicker top line, rounded bumpers, wider pocket.

I think the Mindless' neck is closer to the heel than the 006. The Mindless has slightly more toe hang than the 006 and a slightly thinner topline than the 006. The Mindless has a high toe of 2 degrees. The 006 is flat- I think?

I have never seen a Mindless in person, but it looks like it has slightly less offset (3/4 shaft) than the 006 (full shaft), which could account for more toe hang.

Drew,

I can't remember the exact amount at the moment, but the Mindless does have less than a full shaft offset. I think either 3/4 or 1/2?
