I started off last year with the Accu Bio putter which is an arm lock style putter with a funky head.  I ended up liking the style of putting a lot as I had very good results, but I wanted a more traditional style looking putter.  In the fall of last year, I built a 43" arm lock putter out of old Ping 2i putter.   I had GG adjust the lie to 76 deg and the loft to 7 degrees and put on a 17" super stroke grip on it and I was off and running.  I only got in about 5 rounds with thus far due to the winter, but I love it.  I am not a fan of the face of the putter but I have been able to put a very consistent roll on the ball.  

I like the style so much that I am building an Evnroll arm lock putter right now.  I am having a fiberglass shaft put in it and then plan on sending it back to Evnroll to have the head adjusted to their maximum specs.  Their maximum will be one degree less on loft and lie than my current set up, but it should be close for a good starting point.  It is the 375g anser style head, will be interested to see if it is too heavy or not.

Big thing for me, and I'm trying it bryson style really upright pendulum motion is to get the right length. He uses a 43" putter and he's 6'1" and im 5'11" and obviously there's other considerations but I could not get it to work for me at all and I realized it was just simply too long with my long arms and shorter stature. To be legal it needs to not extend past your elbow and I found the right length for me is 39" and if it gets any longer it just didn't work at all. The only thing I need to figure out now is that I've got the heel off the ground and need a 72-73 degree lie angle. The stability has been really good it becomes SO simple to just lock it in and rock the shoulders. Big thing to experiment with now is headweight I've got a kuchar model 1 at 400 grams which seems awfully heavy and I want to try more like bryson at around 360 grams.
Bryson's putter has a lie angle of 76*.

Where'd you get this info? I do believe you're right I went to 75 and it's still a little heel off the ground. My final specs at 5'11" and pretty long arms is 40" and 76 degree lie angle.
