its the SM490A that probably makes this feel softer for most people, i think everyone has just become so accustomed to SS in a putter for the most part.

I don't know 604... SM490A is softER but in this case, its the extreme deep milling.  Its a good putter (heard that stew... ;D), but for me its not great.  Could be for someone else but not me.  I hope its ok to express my opinion on a forum without being accused of discrediting someone.  I'm not a fan of Scotty as well.. maybe I'm discrediting him now as well?....

I am not a fan of the super deep milling either to be honest, and scotty has turned into a glorified accessory shop if you ask me; more concerned with headcovers and the like as opposed to what he started with, putters. he has not released a decent retail line in what 10+ years?

i will say there seems to be a major influx of little putter companies all over the place, it seems anyone with a milling machine is making them now...

this fujimoto, is NOT the forging house fujomoto gikoh; i believe.

the fujimoto you have listed above is out of australia, and is an off shoot of the golf store; golf mate ebisu austrailia https://www.golfmateebisu.com/

i do not know the full connection between the two, but it is along those lines.

One thing I immediately noticed is that itís very easy to flight the ball just with minor adjustments to tee height. You can hit low lasers that roll or tee it up just a bit and hit high bombs with the same swing.

Honestly with the deepish face I was surprised how well it launched off the turf. Itís still a bit lower launching than optimal from the deck but it was a lot easier than it looked. Iím not usually looking to bomb 3W off the fairway into greens much anyways if Iím that far out Iím usually better off laying up to the 100 mark and going pin hunting with my SW.

i  certainly don't like any  putter for 3k  either and  esp when u can get a fully customed benock for   around half that .


 I saw his full monty of 7  and benok collaboration at the show this year,  and IMO of course it was miles ahead of all the other putters  there. miles better...

ha..well all  except for this litte fella which   I  have to get!

A benock custom is shit. I did that. I rather pay my money to scotty at least i can still sell it away after.

LOL... you;re doing a stew.  Just because it didn't work for you doesn;t make it shit for all.  Don;t know why you are discrediting benock... :o  (see above for context :D)
