    Kevin comes across as a little bitter with the success of other putter makers (as he calls them) who jazz up existing putter models. I’m sure Kevin makes a great putter but aesthetically, his putters have conflicting lines and geometry.

    CNC milling is old technology. Kevin Burns may know a lot about milling putters, but that’s like knowing a whole lot about how to develop 35mm camera film when everyone’s cell phone has a digital camera in it.

    3D printing is the future.
