Honma’s TW-PT Blade Putter

DSC09002-Edit

The Honma TW-PT Blade Putter – Made of SUS303 in the body with dual 14 gram tungsten weights in the sole to increase the putters MOI as much as possible.  By the advice of the Japan tour professional Komei Oda Honma decided to listen and drill holes in the hosel to lighten up the toe side and lighten the heel.  This helps lower the center of gravity promoting a more stable stroke. This plumbers neck putters weights are not adjustable.   Follow the jump for more images…

Seven x Benock Putter User Review

 

Benock Putters Japan5

Alright,  putter lovers, gather around for my review of the Seven x Benock Putter.!! Smooth and balanced stroke is easy with this putter.   Feel at impact is.. Ummmm  “PERRRRFECT” .. how do they do it?    I always thought CNC machined irons and putters would feel soul less and cold and that manual grinding by an experienced craftsman was the only way to make putters and irons lively and special.   Click here for more…

Gravity Golf – Part 3: The Gyelin Putter

waccine-putters-main

Gravity Golf has captured success in the distance shaft market.   Harada-san realizes the game of golf is not just about big drives but the fun is in the scoring.   Naturally, the next step they want to take was to develop a game changing putter!    As seasoned golfers stack up the years,  a common problem that most players will face is loss of distance on shots that require youthful power and physical flexibility. Full swing shots are no longer their strengths,  and when it comes to putting,  they lose the delicate smoothness and touch in their strokes. There is no right or wrong in putting styles.   Even Tour players are spread out in a broad spectrum of putting styles.  Thus,  there are endless new putter introduced in the market year after year.   A unique design is essential for survival in this competitive putter market.   Click read more to continue…

AK Putters Golf1

Have a look at the new Ako-san’s new putter the AK-00.  This one refinished by TSG Club Works in a polished nicr satin finish and custom translucent red paint fill.  Its a traditional anser style putter cnc milled of SUS303 with deep face milling to soften the vibration for a better feel at impact.

The standard finishes are bead blast silver or a matte flat black coating but we felt something was visually lacking so we upgraded the finish for a better aesthetic.  These new AK Putters are now in the TSG ProShop!  Follow the Jump for more photos…

Introducing the 2017 SEVEN VS-R Putter!

DSC00474-Edit

If you’ve been around TSG during the last year or two you may know what SEVEN is.  SEVEN is my personal brand my endeavor to create something better and different.  It’s actually pretty easy to make something better but it’s also expensive and in order to come out on top you must be willing to pay more to have more.  I start with a sketch in my iPad Pro it’s shape is influenced by the work of the many great putter makers,  I close my eyes and imagine the experience I want focusing on looks then feel.

I choose Japanese SM490A as the metal,  this is a material I favored for over a decade after noticing it not as hard as sus303 yet not as mushy as carbon steel.  Face milling plays a big role in how a putter feels how much metal touches the face at impact has a major effect on vibration.  Some milling can make a harder metal feel softer and vice versa.  For carbon which I find too soft I prefer a different type of face mill than on stainless and in this case using SM490A which was already soft but not mushy it allowed me to focus on roll.  Follow the Jump to see more of our creation…

AK Putters by Ako-san of A-GRIND

AK Putters A-Grind Golf2

Ako-san of A-GRIND has formally announced his new company AK Putters.   I’ve been sitting on these putters until the new year and  now have had ample time to test them on  greens.  This particular putter in my photos is not a standard finish,  it is TSG Club Works Black Nickel Finish.  The model is called the AK01 Stealth and standard they are offered in both silver and black finishes.

CNC Milled of SUS303 this new stealth  has a deep milled face.  The head weight itself is set to 345 grams.   Available in straight shaft or W bend shaft.  4* loft with a 71* lie. Ready for my impressions?  Follow the jump please…

AK Putters A-Grind Golf3

This putter feels like a precision instrument.  I love me  good center shaft putter especially one that has the visuals to inspire creativity opening a possible new path to the hole.  The deep mill in the pic above greatly improves feel.  SUS303 tends to be firm with excellent feedback as is but the face on this does two things,  the first is helps the ball roll straighter vs thinner mill or flatter faces.  The second is it softens the feel at impact.

AK Putters A-Grind Golf4

It looks like s stealth fighter to me,  it makes me think of the word “blade” it’s a very workable putter yet it’s thick top line gives off a forgiving aesthetic.  The center shaft vs W shaft is all preference,  go dead straight if you have less of an arc or the W if you have some bend in your stroke.

Why did I refinish this?  It looks great in standard finishes but in Black Nickel it looks outrageously sexy especially with the logo in a color that matches the grip.  The shafts on these are what’s called over hosel design not the easiest thing to find but it comes with the putter and that’s all you need to get the ball rolling.

AK Putters A-Grind Golf5

Batman’s ninja star above – so most putters have a higher MOI as they position a lot of weight back deep and center  this AK01 Stealth pushes the mass outward deep and away from center.  I think that’s where the workable comes from.   It’s such a good design.

The feel off the face is just right,  the black has no glare,  it’s just a well done putter that is unique and screams Ako-san’s work.  Who?  Yusuke Ako who was the lead designer for Royal Collection from 2004 to 2013 for all their clubs including woods, irons, wedges, and utilities.  Then recently started his own label called A-Grind.  TSG has created a nice sized following for A-Grind.  They are reasonable prices the woods, irons, and wedges are killer and now with his new separate series AK Putters it completes the line up.

AK Putters A-Grind Golf6

The new AK putters will be in the TSG ProShop Shortly,  I am also shooting, testing, and writing up a blog post on the AK Blade as well.   The AK01 Stealth retails for 400 dollars and TSG can also change the finish,  specs, grip,  paint fill as well.

 

 


SEVEN SH-Series Gold’s Factory Modified Putter

Seven SH Golf Putter5

SEVEN SH Putter – Made 100% in Japan CNC milled of SM490A the Seven SH series putter in it’s standard form features phenomenal end over end roll,  the perfect soft feel and a shape with angles to die for.  We took it a step further sending a few heads to Gold’s Factory for specific modifications.

This is a one of a kind putter, it’s most unique upgrade is its’ asymmetrical face milling.  The SH has a top and leading edge that has a curve so a standard faux or real insert would not look proper.  Follow the Jump for more photos…
