On the Origin, what models were they? There was B1-01, B2-02, 04 (long neck) 07 (flow), and 14 (mid slant). Any I'm missing?

Here are all the Origins Iím aware of as, at one point, Iíve owned all of them:
B1-01 - stock plumbers neck
B1-04 - mid slant neck
B1-14 - flow neck
B1-05 - long slant neck
B2-01 - stock plumbers neck
B2-04 - mid slant neck
B2-07 - short slant neck
B2-05 - long slant neck

Additionally, there have been some unique Method Matters that werenít available at retail.  
B1-01 - stock plumbers neck
B1-04 - mid slant neck
B1-05 - long slant neck
B2-04 - mid slant neck
B2-07 - short slant neck

Itís hard for me to believe that at one point or another, Iíve owned all of these.  Still gaming my Origin B2-05ís.  Never putted better.

Picked up a 38” B1-01 Origin to put against my standard 35” B1-01 Origin. First thing I did was move the weight much lower in the grip, right where I grip the club actually. Tremendous difference in feel after that. Now to take it to the green and see how it pans out.
I just got the same 38” B1-01 I plan on making it into a 32” putter. I got it specifically for the head weight.

Yeah, if the counterflex option doesnít pan out, Iíll have someone pull the shaft and put in a 35Ē black out shaft and test the heavier head weight against the stock option.

I pulled a counterflex b2-01 and installed a shaft to play at 33" with a countercore super stroke grip. Swing weight is right at D6 and feels great. That blade with a 368g weight is awesome.

I've got an affinity for Nike putters and have recently been fit for a face-balanced blade style putter on SAM Lab.  Ideal specs are 2* loft, 70* lie, and single offset shaft.  I'm toying with buying a Method 004 or Origin B2-05? Any thoughts, pros, or cons would be helpful.

I had been using an Origin B2-01 since last July, but my putting wasn't doing very good at the moment, so I decided to break out my old Method Matter B2-01. This one is lighter, has a black shaft, and the sight line is blacked out, so it gives me a different look and feel. I had forgotten how much I like this putter. I had only 30 putts, which is my lowest ever and my putting was much better overall. That helped propel me to breaking 90 (with 89, big deal for me currently) on a quite difficult course IMO. Its really too bad Nike had to quit making clubs.

Here are some pics of her. I think the wear on the finish adds character.

G'day guys, just bought this putter off the bay after buying a brand new Rory 006 in the collectors box just a week prior! Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this putter or who it was made for? I think the first two letters of the serial number are the players initials but I can't think of who! Cheers

Super rare find not many of that model made!!! TB about 99.9% of the time stood for Tour Bag which would be carried around on the tour van for players to test and then order there putter. The putter model was know as the Watstan it was brought to life to meet the needs of Nick Watney and Kyle Stanley

Love this thread.

Picked up an Origin B2-01 and a 006 Prototype.  Played the Origin last weekend and didn't leave a single putt short.  Will most likely keep the 006 Prototype as my gamer.

Unfortunately, the Origin delivered was the Counterflex version.

Can anyone provide insight as to the hosel size of B2-01 Counterflex?  Looking to get it to a standard length putter.

Thanks!

Do you know if the 006 Prototype is .370 as well?

Thinking about putting a UST Frequency Filtered shaft in each.

I donít have personal experience with the 006 so I canít say for sure. Itís probably .370. My Method Matter was also a .370 so that seems to be what Nike used.

I just put the MM b2-01 back in the bag myself. Shot my best ever round with it. Nike made really fantastic putters.

Is anyone still having luck finding method putters around (other than Dallas golf)? Was in a store the other day and picked up a used Drone 2.0 38 Counterbalance and just loved almost everything about it but it was really beat to hell. Haven't had any luck finding another one but figured this would be the place. Any insight appreciated.

Love this thread.

Picked up an Origin B2-01 and a 006 Prototype.  Played the Origin last weekend and didn't leave a single putt short.  Will most likely keep the 006 Prototype as my gamer.

Unfortunately, the Origin delivered was the Counterflex version.

Can anyone provide insight as to the hosel size of B2-01 Counterflex?  Looking to get it to a standard length putter.

Thanks!

I bought a counterflex Origin and changed the shaft to a standard. It's a .370 tip.
Perfect!  Thanks!

Do you know if the 006 Prototype is .370 as well?

Thinking about putting a UST Frequency Filtered shaft in each.

I donít have personal experience with the 006 so I canít say for sure. Itís probably .370. My Method Matter was also a .370 so that seems to be what Nike used.

006 Rory Prototype took a .355 taper tip shaft.

I saw a few posts saying that the weight ports on the Method Matter are cemented in. I really want to insert the matching copper screws with the copper insert from Bigfootgolf.

Does anyone age any experiences or successes in the removal? Also how challenging is installing the insert for a relatively inexperienced DIYER.

Also for those who have done this insert change how has it affected the feel and roll?

I was able to get the weights out of my Method Matter for the refinish job I posted previously.  First I removed the insert by carefully heating and using a razor blade scrapper to pry the insert out without damaging the putter or insert.  After I got it out, I heated the weights with my heat gun and using the Bigfootgolf wrench was able to get them out.  It was tough as the wrench slips easily and the cement they use didn't want to let loose.  Good luck.

I just put a UST Frequency Filtered shaft in one of my Origin B2-05's.  I used the .370 straight version and it fit perfectly.  

I will say that on the limited putts I've hit thus far on my indoor putting mat, it's hard to tell much difference between the UST shaft and a steel shaft.  Perhaps I'll feel a difference when I'm able to get out on the course and hit some longer putts.

I've got a 001 and am thinking about reshafting. From what I understand, the stock shaft was the True Temper YST, and I am thinking of getting a stepped shaft. I'd love to find a YSC but they are definitely not easy to come by. Does anyone know the tip size for the original methods? Also, has anyone seen this or used this site before?

I just bought a 006 (proper oven built) and I can't get a 0.370 to fit! I'm going to try a 0.355 when I get a hold of one.
