Photos on IG look great, but I kind of cringed at a few due to their "inspiration" from the Lamb putters (drafted sole, unmilled heel section on face, etc...)

Oh yeah I agree the work he has posted is clean.

The one with the milled "insert" is really awesome.

It seems like there are more and more putter makers that keep popping up on IG every other month! lol... I am guessing there are about 30-40 different makers. It's amazing really...

Competition is good for the consumer. Makes the putter makers better at what they do and could also help with pricing.

Are they Lambish ... yeah absolutely, but Iím also not cringing. Just puts into perspective others have the ability to do similar work as Tyson. As he grows Iím sure he wonít copy everyone but at the same time itís great practice to copy great putter makers. Iíd be in for more competition. Puts product,service, and price in perspective.

The same thing is happening in the boutique bag and headcover market.  I too love competition in any marketplace, it breeds higher quality goods and lower price points. However the small, niche market they have entered into is hardly recession-proof and I would venture to guess that most of them fail within eight years.

I'd like to see people start out with something besides an Anser style.  It's so played and done.  

Original designs are much more interesting to see.

This comment comes up a lot in the artisan threads. I wonder how big the market is for people who share your view.

It's pretty risky for a guy to churn out unique designs when there's a big market who are"traditionalists" and want their milled XYZ putter to look "classic."

I agree with you, but I'm not sure the market is there.

The way it appears CJ is doing it is more individual customs.  So, having unique designs is more feasible.

His putters are outstanding!

About $750 which is where most putter artisans are at. $550 - $850 is the norm and can include stamping, loft/lie adjustment, etc. When you ask for custom finishes, necks, etc. the price will climb.

You can get custom putters for much less.  Anything at 750$ is starting to be out of hand for me lol. If you drop $750 On a putter from a lesser named maker..you can kiss resale value goodbye. If it's your forever...knock yourself out.

Share with me a custom for much less.. OTR Betti is 300 ish which is what I think when I hear "You can get custom putters for much less".. Not being argumentative as I am a dude who needs to live in that much less space...

Less? Black lab. Kingston. Carbon. Lajosi. Xenon. Mannkrafted, SGC...I may even be missing a few.

All will have models starting under $500...now if you want to go completely custom...start from scratch and make something truly unique...it can get expensive. I have had 3 customs made. 2 completely handmade, multi metal, Flowneck, none were more than $500.

Cody James' putters looks great. All im saying is you can get a custom putter for a fairly good price. Imo...starting at 550 for a regular Anser style...by a guy who is relatively unknown is a lot of $$$ to dish put. Imo.
