I really like the Cavity Black putters, especially the CB3. Do you have the MOI numbers on these putters? Thank you!
Gosh, I’m sorry but I have to confess that in doing these putters a couple years ago, I really never thought about the MOI as I did the design and shape work on these. I tend to think about that more on driver and iron designs, I guess because I just don’t do that many putter designs in comparison to the other head models. Sorry about that!
Hi, Tom. Do you have the MOI numbers on the Cavity Black line? Thank you.
I am currently away from Durango so I don’t have the info exact but from what I remember, the cavity side of the new 585 forged irons are around 3100 g-cm2 and the muscleback side is about in the area of 2000 g-cm2.
Hi, Tom. I noticed that you don’t have a center-shafted putter. Why?
JJ OK< I have to be honest, and you can laugh at me when I come clean here. . . . . I absolutely still love designing driver, fwy wood, hybrid, iron and wedge heads. But for whatever reasons, I don't get a big kick out of designing putters!! Over the years they have become a sort of "necessary evil" for me in my work. Several reasons for that I can identify. For one, fewer clubmakers sell custom fit putters as they tend to focus most all of their fitting energy on the other clubs in the bag. Two, most… Read more »
Update – I built a CB-3 for myself with a KBS CT Tour shaft and Golf Pride Pro Only Blue grip. I tested it on the putting green and it was incredible! Solid on both lag and short putts. On the course it could not have performed better. As a clubmaker I’m used to playing great Putters. My normal putter is a LAB DF2.1 so the CB-3 had a high bar to challenge. Based on its performance I highly recommend the Wishon CB-3 design.
I have proudly sold the Wishon line to my customers for almost 10 years. The assortment of head designs provide excellent fits for any of my customers. Recently I added the Cavity Black putter line. I love their 355+ gram weighting! If a customer wants a lower swing weight they can easily be counterweighted. In most fittings I install the tour proven KBS CT Tour 120 gram shafts. My only criticism is on the center line of the CB3. The red line is not very visible as opposed to the White/Red/White center lines on the CB4. IMO I would change… Read more »
Glad to hear this and many thanks for your feedback – we will take this onboard about the Cavity Blacks.
Tom how is the feel and sound off the face of the TWCB-4.I,ve read online that a 17-4 metal can feel as soft as carbon steel if it,s made a certain way is that true and does it apply to your cavity blacks.I like the name it,s nice
MICHAEL In all honesty but over the 30+ yrs I have been in clubhead design, I believe that most golfers’ comments about the impact feel of a putter all made from 17-4 vs all made from a carbon steel alloy is imaginary, as long as the thickness of the face is greater than 3mm – which pretty much every putter does. Clubhead speed and resulting impact vibrations are very, very low with a putter compared to a full swing club. Thus it is very hard for me to believe that golfers could truly feel any impact difference due to differences… Read more »
Tom thanks for your response but I meant was a comparison between a 17-4 face as opposed to 304 steel face.
Michael If you are referring to a putter head in which there is a separate face piece that is embedded/welded into the face area of the putter, I would bet the farm and all the tea in China with it that if you made two identical putter head bodies and put a 17-4 face plate into one and a 304 stainless face plate into the other, no human could ever tell the difference from the feeling of impact of hitting putts with both putter heads. I’d also say if you made one putter head entirely out of 17-4 and a… Read more »
Thanks Tom Now I really feel good about the TWCB-4 my wife is putting in my sock it will be the bong with my brushed FST shaft and my Lamkin midsize black and red grip.At 72 I still get happy headed about gaming a TW component thanks for all your great work over the years and merry Christmas and I know 2021 will be a better year than 2020 with a vaccine God bless us all.
I just got fitted for the CB-1 and what a great feel in this putter. It is a bit heavier than I’m used to so I am learning to slow down my stroke a bit. But once I get it right the roll is amazing!
Thanks for another great design Tom!
Ps. The putter looks great and has a premium feeling as well.
JOHAN Thanks very much for taking the time to stop by and share your experience with the new Cavity Black putter. When I did the model #1 I just did not want to do another heel/toe Anser style putter just like all the many other versions that are out there. So that was why I decided to design it with a larger, longer head and then to bring it down in weight so it was not excessively heavy from the larger size, I took out weight from the areas adjacent to the middle of the putter, which also had the… Read more »
the putter face of my smooth series model 5 is pretty worn out. Since I am from Germany, is there any way to get some work done on it?
Si I assume you are saying that the very smooth middle area on the face is now rough or scratched and not smooth like it was when new? if this is the situation with the putter then I am very sorry to say that very likely none of the local clubmakers will have the equipment or the skills to know how to re surface the face and re polish it to make it very smooth like it was originally. That is a procedure that is far more in the area of clubhead manufacturing and the clubmakers are not trained to… Read more »
Tom, I play all Wishon clubs and have a Smooth series mallet putter that needs to be replace due to nicks in the face of putter. What are the major changes in the cavity black series vs the smooth? I am intrigued by some of the “marketing hype” around new-inserts and shafts from the big boys, could you please bring me back to reality on why I should be blocking out the marketing hype and sticking with Wishon putters.
JOHN Three of the four Cavity Black putter models are larger mallet style designs. The fourth is a heel/toe style model but also larger than others of a similar design. So the primary appeal of the Cavity Black putter heads is to increase the MOI for better off center performance – meaning off center putts have a little better chance of rolling farther than they would if the MOI were lower. There are a myriad of different putters out there and the main thing the big companies do is just package their ideas together into a standard made putter with… Read more »
