You have just stumbled into putter heaven, a land where no one cares about making putts. There's only one thing that truly matters here: how awesome looking is the club?

We sent out a challenge to some of the industry's top boutique putter makers and told them to dream big. No rules, just design the coolest custom putter anyone has ever seen before. Easy enough, right?

The Participants So we're putting the vote to you, the reader, to decide which company churned out the best design. To help you out, we'll provide the project name, the designer, the technology and what went into designing each putter. Of course, there are also a ton of of photos.

We've highlighted the specifics of each putter project in a front page story. Click here to read more!

Note: Each of these putters will be returned to their designers. We would have (really) loved to hold onto them, but it would be wrong to keep them from their rightful owners.

I like the seemore.  I've always liked the plumbers neck but have always had issues with alignment.  This seems like it would take care of that.

Machine looks good but the different color flanges bothers me.  I love the patina look of the Seemore and the little "diving board" is a very subtle way of ensuring your aligment is good!

All the putters are great in their own right... It's hard to pick a winner.


Regardless, I need to know how I can get my hands on a "The Roll Abides" grip... or two!

I voted for the SeeMore,    The Seemore has that classic Anser shape but with some technology built into it and that amazing finish really makes it stand out.

I'll have to go with the Machine...sadly, everything that I love about Byron putters seems to be missing in this one!  Where are the signs that this is a one-off, hand-crafted with attention to detail beauty that everything else they put out has???

That being said, that SeeMore is one small detail away from being something that I'd love to game...the sight line!  Take it off and I'm in, love the RST tech and the way they've implemented it on this putter.  Love the finish on that thing too.
