Nice looking stick. But SIK has dropped the ball on this - They have Bryson playing their putter and getting good exposure, but you can't even order this putter on their website. Even the ones available are still saying back-ordered until 7/1 (which has already passed but you still can't order).

It seems like the idea was to let you order whichever neck and alignment lines you wanted, which is a good idea, but doesn't really work when nothing is in stock.

We are unfortunately still sold out. We have had our best year, both on Tour and in the marketplace and are admittedly experiencing growing pangs. We have had to push back our delivery date three times now; however, not for a lack of effort. So you're right, when nothing is in stock its tough move putters. We have purchased, outfitted and tooled new mills and they are now up and running, cranking out putters. We should be selling online again within the month.

**context for the "5" is the Loft for that particular setup. We built him 3 different setups for greentypes / speeds.

Thanks for posting. Are all of Bryson's putters the same headweight? Is it 360?

No problem. Yes, 360g is correct. The reason for the multiple setups is because the techs in Europe who worked on his putter weren't familiar with our technology and set his loft incorrectly; the setting of the loft can be an issue if the club tech isn't aware that we have four different flat surfaces on our face.

For those interested his specs are as follows:
Length: 43 3/4"
Loft: 7°
Lie: 73°

Interesting to see his specs. Thanks. Hey, while you're here - how did you guys decide on a headweight of 360? Just curious.

I always wonder if Bryson has tried the Biomech Ace.. It's philosophy seems to mesh with his ideas, and now especially since he is using the armlock..

360g was, to make a long story short, the happy medium between performance and player feel.  We tested, in increments of 5g, from 330-420g for the blades and while performance on "twisting at impact" improved, the "feel" (admittedly arbitrary) of a blade faded around 375g.

So we tested on our robot for performance and then with Tour players, competitive players and amateurs alike.

Basically we don't go lighter than 360g. Our Jo head is 370g and the Flo is 390g.

We will probably introduce changeable weights in the future but right now we don't see an immediate need. There are drawbacks to changing the weight,  whether by lead tape or sole weights. You add weight to the sole, you change the CG and now, depending on the weight change, will have up to 3-4 difference in your launch angles. To adjust weight you must then adjust loft.  It's a problem without a clear answer, yet.

Thanks for the feedback.  I am currently happy with what I have but seeing as I may have a few months I will save the email and fire when ready.  Thanks again!

My guess is ugliness?

If sik putters roll it true and look good too it is a no brainer IMO.
