Anybody know what putter Henley was using to destroy the Sony?  It looked like a long neck of some type on TV.  Golf.com says it was a Nike 006 proto.  Anyone know for sure?

If you check the Nike Method putter thread from the Sony, it looks as though they also made him a 001 Proto with the long slant neck, as the serial on the sole of one of the putters in the thread starts with "RH" like they do with putters for players.  Pics are about half way down in the thread.

The "putter" was Henley himself. He put on a clinic with the flat stick.

The putter he used looked more like the 001 Proto with the long neck.  Look at the pictures above.  The bumpers are squared off like the 001, not the 006.

Great looking stick! Does anyone else produce one like that for mere mortals?

Nike has a midnight 006 just like it only darker. Also there is the exact same one that russel has on eBay right now for a fair price of $300, says "the oven" and everything. Next closest would be just a Newport 2 or anser.

This is the one the Rory will be playing too right?  Or is he playing the midnight version?

No he is playing the one that russel is playing I believe.

Gotcha thanks!  I have not seen any closeups or Rorys putter as of yet.

No, Hennley's is a long neck proto, the one on eBay is the retail 006 with the original Method finish on it.

The one on the bay had the Oven and Prototype stamped on it.  I think it's the real deal actually.

The one on eBay is from the Oven, yes, but its just like a retail 006.  The only difference is it has the original finish that was on the Methods 001 through 005.  And I know this because it is identical to mine in my WITB.

Hennley's looks nothing like mine.  Scroll down to the 13th post.

I think he used an Odyseesy long neck for most of his college days, so I would think that nike just made one that looks like that.

The putter he used prior to the Method was an Odyssey White Hot 6, Newport 2 longish slant neck.  His Method is more of a Newport longer slant neck.

Had my pusher check with the Nike rep today, and the putter Henley gamed last weekend is not available retail here in Canada.

So, is this long slant neck fairly face balanced? Is that what the long slant neck is designed for, SBST?

Not yet, but hopefully with enough calls/requests to Nike they will be pushed to bring us what we want.  Hopefully...
