Some new Byron eye-candy...
« on: September 22, 2017, 02:31:14 PM »
Was lucky enough to get this from Byron just before the B-17 announcement and (presumably) onslaught of orders.  Classic 615 mixed metals look with a different site alignment twist.  At least different for me...  I have heard this alignment style called a "giff cut".  If anyone knows the real name, please enlighten!!

Hope to see other new stuff on here soon, esp. the first few B-17s...

You two nailed that one.  Looks great.  May push me over the edge to order one.

That came out super nice. Looks great. I've never seen the white line like that.
I have a BB28 RAW and the head is too dark for me to see good so I used pin striping from a local automotive store. :D

That 'giffs' cut is really cool. Where did you find that? Just curious since I have never seen one before.

I have seen that cut on some older T.P. Mills putters, and maybe on a Machine or two over the years.  It's not a stripe or paint element, it's an actual milled cut into the top-line.  T.P. did it on a 45 degree angle, but on this putter Byron did it as a "notch", which I think is awesome.  Then the paint-fill goes in the notch...

If I can get a close-up picture of it, I will attach to this post.  I thought the idea was cool and asked Byron if he could do it.  With this post I'm really just trying to get some of the history and naming myself....

Thanks for the info. With that cut I can order darker heads which I like. I zoomed the screen up and saw the cut; very nice! Byron is amazing.

Brushed blue oil on carbon (head).  Stainless hosel has a slight flamed finish for that honey color...

Thanks, Eddie. 

Here's a picture of the putter without paint or finish to show the top-line cut a little better.  I'd still like to know whether this has an industry name or not, and if so what that might be.  I'll bet Johnny "scooterdog" Hines would have known what this was called!!!

Thanks to Byron for doing the masterful job - based only on a conversation and a picture

I really like an alignment line like this, especially if it's roughly ball-width. So easy and intuitive to line up putts.
