Brass Putter Markings


Recommended Posts

I have recently bought a  few old brass putters and noticed that there are markings on the soles that are stamped in like M5C  on an Achusnet Bullseye and B2 on an "Old Master"  brass putter.  I was hoping someone here might know what that means?

Thank You Vinsk.  That makes sense M5C:

M=medium lie

c= corded grip

5= 35 inch 

I printed it out as I am starting a new hobby refurbishing brass putters. I have 10 Achusnet Bullseyes which I am working on.

Are you then selling them?

Do you have one with two faces, a righty/lefty one?

Yes I do have some R/L putters and yes I will be selling them.  They won't be ready for about a week or two. I guy has been saving them for me and he just shipped them today.  I will let you know when they are ready. Just curious do want the original grip or a new grip. I haven't seen the clubs yet but I think some of grips   might be worth refurbishing. I can replace them with the grip of your choice also. Just something to think about. Let me know what you think. This batch is all Acushnet Bullseyes.

Great. I don't know if I care much about the grip - I'm looking for a two-sided putter so I can put it in my lefty set.

LMK when they're available.

    • Day 132: Got some blisters on my fingers so couldn’t do much. Just some chippy swings with 8-iron, working on getting into lead side. 
    • There are some variables here that can definitely effect my answers. What's your golf goal? If it's just to get out and enjoy the game, then no. If you're looking to score better, than maybe but again probably best spent on lessons. If it's because you want to and have the funds, why not? There may be a physiological component too, the golf swing can be hard on the body and if you're swinging stock items you could be making it harder on your body than it needs to.  I'm in the middle of a full bag fitting and I'm finding it's almost as much about feel as performance. I've reached the point with my equipment where I know it's more me than the equipment. I'm also finding I probably should be playing lighter equipment than I am. I can use stock equipment, but it might be a little harder and it might not feel as good.  Getting a fitting could also help you with your misses, before this truly custom fitting, I had a fitting where they adjusted the clubs I bought from them to help with my pulling shots with the irons. I guess my short answer would be, if you already consistently shoot low with off the rack gear, than no getting a custom fitting won't be worth it, but it's a fun process and if you have the funds, why not, maybe you could find the secret sauce that fixes everything. In regards to custom fitted clubs, you're more likely than not going to pay more.
    • Top Gun: Maverick - it's a birdie that's sitting on the edge of the cup, and if I take a reasonable amount of time to get to the hole from 166 out, and ten seconds, it may just fall in for an eagle. As corny and predictable as it was, I enjoyed just about every second of it. It was nostalgic, self-referential, paid homage, and hit all the right notes without being heavy-handed in any way. I still don't know who Penny or Emilia are, but I guess that doesn't matter.  
    • That’s exactly why dynamic fitting is much better than static. You’re size just gives the fitter a starting point and good fitter will go by the results regardless of your static data unless the fitter sees you’re considerably bent over. He may suggest trying a longer club to get you more upright. Fitting isn’t about making a swing to fit your clubs, it’s the opposite.  As far as price, it’s been alleged that certain fitting operations will drill you pretty good with shafts that are unnecessarily pricey. Beware of that. Big brick places like Golf Galaxy and PGATOUR SUPERSTORE will often give you the fitting for free if you buy the clubs there. 
    • Every club in my bag is currently over 10 years old, and every one of them is something straight off a shelf.  I started thinking when I replace them it'd be nice to get fitted to know I have something right for me.  That said, all I know about the fitting process is what I've read online and am curious about a few things before I go down that road. Im taller at 6'4" so i think under normal circumstances i wouldve been fitted for longer clubs.  If I'm used to playing with off the rack clubs, they're all I've ever played with my entire life, is that taken into consideration sideration during a fitting and is it even worth being done if I'm comfortable with a standard length? Mostly, I'm not really interested in changing my swing when I change clubs, if the "proper" length will do that.  But if a fitting is tailored to my current swing and not just my size then it could be worth pursuing, I just know very little about the process. And as long as I'm on the subject, besides the cost of the fitting itself, how does the cost of specially fitted clubs compare to the same club purchased off the rack?
