63* here in Ohio today has me thinking about golf so let's see some pictures of the putter(s) you will be using in 2013!

For the third year in a row, I will be starting the year off with my Rife Aussie.  It's the longest I've ever had a putter stay in the bag!

That's a good looking putter.  I am in Ohio too and actually played 9 last night.  I just bought a Byron Morgan DH98 that I used for the first time yesterday.  I used to rotate between three Edels, but I am not sure I will be rotating now.  I do plan on buying one more Byron most likely this year so it may become the  gamer as I think it will be exactly what I am looking for.  Basically, this Byron is great, but after having it and seeing some other photos of side by sides, I think I want  a Da Kine with some custom hand grinding.

Likely going with old reliable... PING Redwood Anser with DIY white-out paint job (first try). 33" with the grey PP58 grip. [Sorry the pics are a little blurry... they didn't look that way on my phone.]

My is so basic I won't even post a picture.  It is an old school Ping Anser 2, off the used rack at Golf Galaxy.  It is still in mint condition, and it is one of the few putters I have ever felt that I can make everything with it.

Sorry, no pics, but I bought myself a Christmas present, a TM Ghost Tour DA-12.  And a few extra weights.  I installed a white Iomic Mid-size grip, but thinking about trying out a Superstroke Ultra-Slim.

I used this Byron about half the golf season last year and couldn't be more pleased with the looks, feel and performance.  Been playing for 25 years andI had the best putting year of my life.  I have another Byron on order, DH11 with the same neck and look but the anser head.

Going to be either a Piretti or a Bettinardi.
A similar Nike (Made in China) is pushing what a person would pay for the same USA made Piretti or Bettinardi.

That's a beauty there!

I never understood why Cameron released the OTR California Fastback with the triple site lines.  Looks so much better like yours with the single line.

The same Byron Morgan is too rich for my blood. (Sorry BM lovers but facts are facts. And I am not trying to disparage BM. Great product.)
Carbon steel is carbon steel. Tool path programming, set-up, machine time, would be equal.
A Haas tooling center would make one like carving butter using SGS carbide tooling or something of a similar ilk.

A similar Nike (Made in China) is pushing what a person would pay for the same USA made Piretti or Bettinardi.

Byrons aren't much more than Bettis.  I was looking at Bettis when I ran across Byrons.  Production Bettis start at $299 I thought and Byrons start at $350.  There are plenty of $1000+ Bettinardis as well as Byrons.  The reason I went with Byron vs Bettinardi is that I could not get a custom putter for the same price from Bettinardi.  I didn't want a sight line on my putter.  To get a Betti with no site line it was going to cost me well above $750 and then I was not going to be able to get it shaped etc like I wanted.

No problem, I just didn't want anyone to read this and think Byrons are all over $1000 GSS etc.  Like I said, I started off looking at Bettinardi's because they are so precision like, quality flat sticks for sure.  I just couldn't get one without a sight line so I went looking else where.  If BB would have had a naked putter with a little rounding on the trialing edge, I would be using a Bettinardi and would never have researched Byrons.

The toe hang is around 4:00 to 4:30, the salty grip is similar to the superstroke lite which I believe is 1.3" diameter the difference is in the contour & feel.

Nike Method 006 midnight. Just picked it up a week ago and man it has a great roll, tracks well, and rolls out very well. I am having to learn to hold back a bit it rolls out so well.
