Very nice Dave.
I have a question about a flange for the M9. I'll send you an email over the weekend.
Thanks Tommy! Look forward to your email!

I've always beed a fan of this style putter. Very Nice D.
One thing I've noticed in other mfg's offerings is that when you ground the putter with light pressure the blade automatically wants to shut. Almost like it can't stay square on its own. Have you noticed this with your build?
Thanks for the question. I strive to make our putters sit square at address. Many putters with a lot of offset in particular will fall closed when placed at address. The reason is the weight of the shaft and grip are ahead of the body, and pulls the putter closed / hooded as a result. Some manufacturers mill draft (negative bounce) in the soles to counteract this tendency. However, this can make the putters sit open, and add loft. I have found that if we mill our soles a certain way with a combination of a very flat section and very smooth radiused areas on all sides of that, we can get a putter to sit very square for most golfers. You can't really notice the flat spot in the photos or even in person because it blends so well with the rest of the radiused sole, however these flats are in all our models with the exception of the older revival M5 and M6 models. Hope this helps!

I love everything about that putter. I'd go with the matching flange, but add a sight line
Well done, Dave!
Thanks very much! I appreciate the kind comments! Adding a sightline is no problem!
More photos next week of some heads, necks and flanges in Hot Salts Gunmetal Blue!
Thanks again everyone for all the kind comments and support.
All the best,
