  1. As to the milling being cheaper than inserts I'm going to have to politely disagree there too. AFAIK cheapest inserts are much much much cheaper in production than cheapest milling. You have to factor in the cost of milling tools and their maintenance. A cast clubhead requires zero tools to insert. One human can probably do 400-500 inserts in a day, and the materials are super cheap. Milling requires a mill. And bits. And programs. And people who keep those things running. As far as I know the costs are not comparable at all, and that accounts for why all the cheap clubs at Walmart have inserts while the buying trend is milled. Golf Spy did a piece on this but suffice to say I can't agree with that statement but i respect your opinion. Cheers. 🙂 The TRUE Cost of Making a Putter Manufacturers throw around plenty of buzzwords to justify higher costs, but what does it really cost to make a putter? The answer may surprise you. I think I mentioned a few times "no one is saying it's an expensive putter", so I'm confused why you said that. I'd just like to know it's heritage that's all. I'm curious. I am not selling it, I'm not gaming it, not claiming it's expensive, just curious about it because I like it. Cheers.
  2. And just to insert a quick reality check here cheapest putter at Walmart is $60 USD and as I mentioned is neither milled, stamped, nor Winn gripped. Cheers. 🙂 Merchants of Golf 1113533 Tour x Golf Black Putter no.550 | Walmart Canada Buy Merchants of Golf 1113533 Tour x Golf Black Putter no.550 from Walmart Canada.

Anyhow I appreciate your feedback, noted. Cheers.
  3. Totally different logo, not the same Red Zone. I googled first, deduced the ones you mentioned were not a match, then came here. You missed the point. I do not see "patent pending" on hosels. I handle lots of putters. I can't explain it's presence to you obviously as I have yet to determine the origin of the putter but anyone who makes clubs knows that stamping the hosel is a step you would never make if you were making "cheap as possible" clubs. Again, no one said it's an expensive club but definitely was not made as cheaply as possible. Walmart's cheapest clubs do not have Winn Pistol grips, you can confirm that easily. I just want to find out who this company was and this putter if I can, if I can't it's not really something I want to defend to someone who's never touched it. But I appreciate the feedback. It's definitely not manufactured to the cheapest standards, nor does it feel cheap. The roll is on par with more expensive clubs and nothing like the myriad $10 clubs here. Cheers.
  4. Yep I agree, I have tons of $10 clubs in my collection, none of them have nicely milled faces, Winn pistol grips, or patent pending on them, never seen that on a cheapie before. So it may be a consumer model but it definitely was not a $10 club. It putts very well, nothing cheap feeling about it at all that I can detect. I've never seen patent pending on a $10 club before. And it's definitely not common to see on putters in my experience. I don't watch TV so I can't speak to that. Not saying it adds value, point was why would someone making $10 clubs bother? Or bother to use genuine Winn grips? Or bother to mill the face rather than just insert? Not saying it's an expensive putter, but those additional features definitely add up to "too much cost" for any company making $10 putters. And it definitely does not feel "extremely cheap", a guy who plays a Scotty just stroked it and said it felt nice, confirms what I felt too. I have no intention of making it a game club, just curious who SE Golf was, not often you find a putter with zero references on Google. 🙂
  5. It wouldn't take much actually as long as the structure is sound... I love the speakers, you can just imagine what used to blast out of those. 😂
  6. Hoping to find out more information about this brand, and this exact putter specifically. Neither have been identified as of yet. Typically they don't patent extremely cheap putters and sell them with Winn Pistol grips, but you may be correct. Cheers.
  7. Can anyone help identify this putter? Thank you. 😀
