Got my B2-01 today, and I love it, but I don't love the grip.

Am I crazy for wanting to buy another putter shaft so I can regrip and not destroy the Lamkin "Origin" on it?

These may be collector items in the future, though they are not at the moment.  I think it is only worth it if you are upgrading the putter shaft.  It is always fun to tinker though.

I agree and that is one reason why I have held on to all of my Nike putttes.

Anyone know if the head weight for the counterflex models is any heavier than the non-counterflex?

I bought a counterflex model for the head because I got it cheap. According to the specs Nike put out, the counterflex models are supposed to be like 368 grams or something where the regular head was 345 grams. When I took the head off to put it on a regular shaft, it weighed at 345 grams. It's possible my scale is off, but I also tested it by weighing a Superstroke Flatso which is supposed to be like 85 grams and it was spot on.

So to answer your question, I think it's supposed to be, but mine wasn't.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking of doing. What did you end up shafting it with?

I think it's more in line with putter length - I wanted to do the same and bought a 38" for $89 new on Global Golf. After taking the head off and weighing, it's at 368g exactly.

I was able to get the weights out of my Tour stock Origin. They look to all be 1 gram weights. My head weight is 346 with the weights. Id love to get my hands on some heavier weights to get it up to 360ish. I wonder what the cost would be to have a machinist recreate them out of heavier material...probably more than its worth. Could probably knock the price down if multiple people were interested though.

I just bought a B1-01 from Dallas Golf today.  It has a CH serial number but no sight line so I think it's from The Oven.  Do you guys have any idea why some of the putters from The Oven don't start with an O?  Is it safe to say that mine is from The Oven?

Also, they had a few Method Origin putters that weren't the B1-01 or B2-01.  Any Method Origin that is not one of those two models is non-retail right?

No sight line from Dallas Golf would be a Tour Stock putter from the Oven. They weren't actually made at the oven, so most that I have seen don't have O serials. CH and PC seem to be the most common. Correct - any non B1-01 or B2-01 would be a non-retail Tour Stock putter that came from inventory sell-off from the Oven.
