Well last night I was messing around on paint... And I came up with this. Now I have to start saving. Happy graduation to me?

Alright a little thinking and I think I want a blank sole, head from 350g-360g. No sight lines or dots. With a white surfer Sally cover and blue stitchback. 😊

Version 1 (Dream)



More thinking. Copper. Tiffany.

Version 2 (AKA Realistic)

Putter designs looks real sweet! I will be getting my Byron GSS this week and I can't wait! If you want to stay around $500 go with carbon. The GSS is 1K and more.

I was thinking that too. I'm sure there would be an upcharge for all the milled dots. Unique design though.

Also, something to think about is that a lot of materials would be removed from the cavity with that many dots making it tough to keep a 350g headweight, especially in a Mini.

Copper would keep it heavy.

I'd greatly reduce the # of stamping you have there -- that's increasing the cost for no good reason.

Simple design + solid copper + sound slot = putter you'll play for the rest of your life!

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think that Byron has any TCB DH89 Mini heads around anymore.  If he does, the cavity won't be stamped because the cavity has to be milled out for weight.  He could mill in the circle HB, though.  One more thing to think about is the stamping on the neck-- I'm sure Byron will tell you but I'm not sure that there is enough space to stamp "BYRON MORGAN" down the neck.

Perhaps he'll have a billet sitting around and he can get you something milled, though.  That would be pretty sweet!

Looking at the photos I have of the Mini Mystic, I'd imagine you could have Byron use the small stamps to stamp the neck.  I'm not sure that it would look super crisp, though.

Hmmm okay thanks! Hopefully they would work. Snuf is seeing if he has any heads and getting a quote on a basic one. Maybe I'll end up with a carbon or SS. I have time so who knows what byron will have by the summer
