Machine Vivere Damascus and Machine Big Bore
« on: August 15, 2015, 01:48:37 AM »
I just got my 2 latest Machine putters several days ago and immediately I had to send Dave the following message :

HI Dave,

First and foremost, I finally got my Vivere and Big Bore.  I love the Limited head cover as well as the Machine club H/C.

Dave, no BS here, when I took out the Big Bore, I felt a tingle.. the Black medallion and blood red paintfill... the VMG face mill... WOW!  Then I took out Vivere... Dave, I've had customs from enough putter makers in the US, Italy, Japan and Australia and I think I have some basis to say without doubt that you are indeed the best at what you do!  Vivere is fantastic!  The damascus grains are captivating!  The mokume gane medallion... perfect! The torching of the SS neck to match the grain and mokume colours... the attention to detail....the mark of true craftsmanship!  The pill cuts perfectly executed!  Vivere is my Mona Lisa!  I will game her.. she is too lovely not to game.

I thank you so much for your professionalism, craftsmanship, dedication, passion, patience and generosity to produce what I consider the best putter in my humble collection in Vivere!  I can;t wait to put in my NS Pro XXIP shaft and to have a roll.

THANK YOU AGAIN DAVE!  I love my machine putters!  ALL OF THEM! You are the standard for custom makers!


Dave and the entire Machine team of Libby, Jim, Gary, Chris and others that I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet really delivered AGAIN!

I can;t recommend Machine enough.

Thanks Jimmy.  You'll do well working with Machine.  Great products and great people. Lots of integrity.

I hope Dave or Chris will post other angle pics of Vivere here.

how did she do

Very decent I feel.  My putting avg is 31/32 and I came in at 30 for her maiden round.  One very unnecessary 3 putt, 7 one putts.  Feel I find is sublime (ok, maybe placebo but so what :-) and distance control is excellent.  I normally rotate my putters every week but Vivere is staying for another week.  My poor Big Bore though.. she'll have to wait for her maiden bow.
