East Meets West : Formula Slighter
« on: June 18, 2014, 01:35:15 AM »
I've been a fan of Kitada, a small putter maker out of Japan.  Their putters feel great and roll great but frankly, finish and aesthetics wise, that is not their forte.

So I decided to send my SUS 303 Kitada in to Tom a while back and told him I wanted a racing theme on it and sent him a picture of what I think is  Viper with some racing stripes on it.

I've since put in a Vibrant Standard Flat Black shaft in it and a black Iomic Absolute X grip.  Tom's a great guy to work with and while I'm sure my choice of themes is not everyone's cup of tea, I hope you can appreciate the good work that Tom does on face mill, finish, engraving, tour dots, stampings, pill cuts etc.

I don't think it is to busy. That is one good looking putter.

Turned out great.


I remeber when you started this project and the first pic with the ports cut out for the weights.


But for me its not really the Viper, more this one ;)
