any help on this one is appreciated
« on: September 10, 2018, 10:05:52 PM »
I took this putter on trade from someone and have no idea what it is or the value really. Was part of a large package deal and wasn't valued individually. Im assuming it is a newer generation based on stamping

Thanks for the help

I have no idea. I can't find anything on it online or on any of the mills websites. I emailed Craig on TPmills site waiting for a response hopefully

Here's a couple older threads that might help enlighten...

I'm sure Craig will be able to give you some info as well.  It's clearly new-ish given the Alabama stamp.  And I've never seen a putter by David with the hammered/peening look.

I agree with fharbist.  Looks like a tribute head to me.  That looks different to me in terms of a few features.  The traditional rippling on the flange of many mills putters is caused by work done with a belt and is smooth to the touch. This looks more like hand peening to me. I've also never seen the belt marks on the topline and back heel before.  I was under the impression that it's not probable to get stainless to look like soft carbon in terms of that beautiful ripplng look because it's harder steel. Definitely check with David.  Maybe he did something special for a customer.
This is a cool and unique putter.  Always liked the tribute shape.

and

tpmills@comcast.net

Nope.  This is where it gets a little tricky/confusing.  A One with a pocket is called a 1-B.  The Tribute is a similar but different design.  I think the shoulders are shaped differently and it has a high-toe as well.  Somebody with both putters might be able to post a side-by-side picture for comparison purposes.

Here's a 1-B that I sold a few years back.  Unlike the Tribute, the shoulders on the 1-B (and on the ONE) slope front-to-back in addition to heel-to-toe...
