ok boys poison time....heres the official pictures of the Zen Custom Tour Blades. its not for sale at this point as we are still in prototyping stage. the European and US version will be sent to their respective centres for testing and once we get the feedback in a month's time, we will proceed to further prototyping.

meanwhile enjoy the pictures that was taken by the professional photographer at Zen HQ in Sheffield, UK.

Available in plumber's neck ZA1 (60 degree FB, full shaft offset, 345 and 355g) and short slant ZA 2 (45 degree FB, half shaft offset, 345 and 355 g). millled from a solid block of SS 303 and double annealed. Finished in 2 micron bead blast with a polish sole. Face milled RDE (Reduced Dimple Error Technology - patented) variable face angle of 4 degrees adjusted for vertical roll and horizontal budge. Lie in 71 and 69 degrees.



plumbers neck is the first and fourth putter from the left. the rest is short slant and the lone centre-shafted is third from left.



US version sole engraving....



UK and Europe version engraving....



short slant - top and perspective view.....





other detailing...weight is etched on the toe.







possible options....



the product is not available for commerical release at this point. but if you die die want to try, come bye and try it at you know where.

btw the asian version sole is the same as what S70B has posted. it will be available in 3 colours - tour satin, bronze and matt black. for those who want a sound slot (beach - 2mm), it can be arranged but there will be cost involved as the putter will be individually milled at the sole.

Boss,

I know i am not on your priority list. But i still hope that you will be kind enough to put me on your next shipment list. Preferably, i would like to have a center shafted one. If not, a midslant/plumber neck will do (aka anything will do). I am not too particular about weight, 345-350 grams will do. Length will be 33 inch. Thanks.

Ya, our necks also very long. The first time "i" and myself tried the Zen Oracle mallet, we already asked for blade versions.

Patience, my boy ! Tat's wat i have been telling "i" Very Happy We want quality works; not worth to rush. Meantime, let's polish up our putting skills 8)

Cheers,

DGman,

I can take the MS proto out again for another run after you have blunt it by a few microns. If the feedback has improved you will see me in that list.

Or you can just show up everyday with CSSY offerings and then hope to be there at the right day and at the right time so that you can have your pick of the putters when they arrive.


But just to put it in perspective for you.

Most standard putters come in 71° lie and 4° loft. Standard lengths are 33", 34" and 35". Then there is the issue of the neck. In this offering there is 2; plumber neck and mid slant.

Plumbers neck is the funny bend here and there neck made famous by Eldrick Woods. Mid slant as its name's suggest it a straight neck that is slight slanted.

So just pick which one you want?

had a conference call that lasted just over an hour...the wheels are in motion boys.

S70B PN is back and will be debutting at the Queens Cup at Koh Samui next week.

i am sure we will get more feedback for positive changes from an existing ZO Blade user.
