    My work is finished...

    I originally bought this almost 15 years ago from a $10 bucket in Myrtle Beach!!

    It was recently resurrected and has been chopped to 33", back weighted, painted stripped, with some new sight lines added and a banana yellow grip.

    It looks a bit ghetto which makes it even cooler.

    I have owned a fair collection of putters and tried most brands. I can now confess that this thing is the best putter I have ever owned. It has a sweet spot about X10 the size of the SC. The ball rolls off it so well and I am SO confident with it in my hands. 29 putts last weekend!!

    Noice, very noice.

    With 29putts I'd never let it leave my sight.

    Damn!

    This is an obvious / irritating link to Dick Faldo!! I believe he used this putter to great effect many years ago.

    Your right about Faldo using this, think it was late 80s to mid 90s. He owned the moss with this thing.
    Great looking putter, the Scotty Del Mar 3.5 looks to have more than a passing resemblance.:)
    I think one of my buds has one of these gathering dust in his loft. I will have to see if I can persuade him to let me give it a go.
