Strange Putter thrift store find. Please help with ID!

8 posts in this topic

Hello all, I recently bough this putter from a thrift store. It is milled with what appears to be a urethane insert. It has heel and toe weights milled into the face as well. No markings of any kind as to manufacturer or model. It has a graphite Muscle by Fenwick ultralight shaft and a golfpride softie grip. Any info would be appreciated! And by the way, it rolls like crap, probably a result of the weird shaft.

Any markings on the sole?

I'd start by guessing its from the 80's decade.

I think Top-Flite made the muscle shaft.

No markings on the sole.

It is strange because it seems to be a really well built piece with well done milling but not a mark on it.

Could be home made by a mad putter scientist. I definitely have no idea!

I had one of those!!! Awful putter, bought it after watching the TV infomercial at like 3am, after a night of pretty heavy drinking. Can't remember the name of it, but it was all over late night TV around 1995-96. This putter, and my AJ Reveals the Truth about Golf DVDs = biggest regrets.

Ok, might not be the one I had. Did a little more research, and I had a Carbite putter. Similar in that it also had heel/toe weights and insert milled in.

Thank you everyone for the replies! I have been writing a paper all day on the international trade patterns of Monaco and this was a very fun distraction!

The way I look at it is worst case I have already got my 1 dollar worth just by messing around with it and learning a few things. I will probably keep it around for a while and maybe look at replacing the shaft. I don't think that graphite shaft was ever meant for a putter.  I get a kick out of just finding random stuff at thrift stores.

Here are a few pictures of a size comparison with a Ping cushin 4 from the late 70's .

And just for fun the new project I also scored for a dollar... Thinking about a gun blue finish with gold paintfill.
