Congratulations to Kenny Thomson! You have won the Bellum Winmore putter!

 

Brass Balls

At the most recent running of the annual PGA Merchandise Show companies rolled out the products that they believe golfers will want/need in the coming season. How many products? Let’s just anger my 7th grade English teacher and use the descriptor a lot. There are new clubs, carts, rangefinders, shoes, ball markers, training aids, and a myriad of other competitors for the golf dollars. The companies making the products are as diverse as the products themselves, ranging from the huge OEM to the dude in the garage, yet they all share one common character: courage.

Reverend, you’ve got balls as big as church bells.
-Dragnet, 1987

For some reason, I always incorrectly associate that quote with Clint Eastwood’s preacher in Pale Rider. Regardless, it was the first thing that came to mind when thinking about getting involved in the golf marketplace.

Bringing a new product to market is risky. You are betting the year’s bottom line on how well the product is embraced by the buying public. For a small company, this is a life and death equation, they essentially get one shot to make an impact, or fiscally die. Even large companies though can take a significant hit if the new product flops. Google “New Coke” if you are not old enough to remember that debacle.

From My Cold, Dead Hand

Given the competitive nature of the golf market, a company must believe strongly in their product to brave the risk of entering the golf fray. Some golf products seem riskier to launch than others.  Maybe my view is askew, but I think that entering the putter business is the riskiest of all.

Why the riskiest? First, there are lots of putters out there. A trip to your local shop will yield putters of all shapes, sizes, and prices. Second, putters can be an emotional purchase. Subjective terms like looks and feel can get in the way or making the purchase based on performance. Third, and maybe most significantly, putters show a low bag turnover rate. Nobody I know is still gaming their 20-year-old driver, but I’ve seen more than one putter that has been in a bag since the 80’s. I use a new putter each time I play, but the rational golfer tends to stick with a putter longer than any other club.

Bellum Winmore-09

Bellum Winmore: Willing to Take the Risk

Enter Bellum Winmore, a small (i.e. two guys) company out of New York that has dove into the putter pool. Bellum Winmore has decided that they can bring a putter to the market that will separate them from the other competitors. Is it a different color? Nope. Does it have a unique alignment system? Nope. Unique insert polymer? Nope.

Instead of edging into the market with a unique “gimmick”, Bellum Winmore is making a putter that is 100% milled. I feel that the milled putter market is the most dangerous of all because that puts you directly up against Mr. Cameron and Mr. Bettinardi, as well as the other established small shop makers like Byron Morgan and Machine. It’s like choosing to be a heavyweight fighter when Mike Tyson was in his prime. Risky.

So today we are going to take a closer look at Bellum Winmore, and their new model 707 and see if we can’t shed a little more light on their story and their putter.

Bellum Winmore-18

Bellum Winmore: The Name & Mission

I had Tim, one of the owners of Bellum Winmore answer a couple of questions so that we could all learn a little more about them and their putter. Let’s get the obvious two out of the way first:

Tell me the meaning behind the Bellum Winmore name.

Originally the name was going to be Bellum, which is Latin for war. War on its own just seemed kind of negative with overtones of extreme personal danger. So we added a simple word smash and Bellum Winmore was born. Winning more is a concept I think we can all get next to. A tip of the hat to Charlie Sheen

What separates Bellum Winmore putters from off the rack putters? From other small-shop putters?

Bellum Winmore was formed on two immutable concepts: performance and quality. Zac and I have complimentary skill sets in manufacturing that ensure a sustained commitment to these guiding elements and a promise to consistently make our precision putters available at the lowest price possible. To our knowledge we also offer the largest selection of grip weights of any manufacturer, large or small. This gives our customers the ability to really tune their putters from a swing-weight perspective. Our emblem is pretty cool too

Bellum Winmore: The 707 Putter

Now that we have an idea about where they are coming from as a company, let’s take a look at the putter.

Bellum Winmore-12

Specifications: Bellum Winmore 707

  • Material: 100% Milled 303 Stainless Steel
  • Weight: 350g
  • Toe Hang: about 4:00
  • Length Tested: 34″
  • Finish: Satin
  • Grip:  Bellum Winmore logoed PURE Grip
  • Ball for Testing: Wilson Staff 2014 FG Tour

Looks

Bellum Winmore-08

My thoughts on the looks of the Bellum Winmore 707 are best captured with the word clean. The edges are sharp and precise, as is the milling throughout the entire head. If you are looking for handmade character, you won’t find much in the 707. Instead, you will find precision milling, with seemingly very tight tolerances.

The specific visual features that stand out to me are the neck, with it’s short over hosel rather than plumbers neck design. The between-the-bumpers valley is also a little narrower than a typical Anser-style putter, leading into a cavity-free transition from the back through the face.

Personally, as one who aims primarily by squaring the face to target, I really like the thick, flat top line of the putter. I also find the sloping geometries from the cavity to the bumpers visually pleasing. Aesthetics are, of course, subjective.  From my perspective though, the Bellum Winmore 707 is a great looking putter.

 

Feel

Bellum Winmore-07

303 Stainless Steel with a thick face equals softer than I expected. No sweet mush of carbon, but no expected crisp pop of stainless either. It’s not as crazy soft as the 304 stainless that STX uses, but the 707’s softness is worth noting.

I was actually surprised a bit when I went back to check the head weight on the 707. It feels a bit stouter than the advertised 350g. I don’t have the exact swing weight of the tested putter, but more than one tester commented on how it felt “head heavy”. Bellum Winmore has a way to address this feel/play system though: customizable grip counterweights. I’ll let them tell you the significance of these weights.

Swingweight, simply stated, seeks to quantify the golfer’s perception of a club’s headweight as it travels through space. A club’s swingweight is calculated by defining the balance point of the club based on the fulcrum point on a swingweight scale. Measurements are denoted on a graduated alpha-numeric scale ranging from A0 through F10, each letter having ten equally measured increments.

A club measuring on the low end of the swingweight scale (A0) will feel lighter than one measuring on the high end (F10). That said, two clubs having identical headweights may have distinctly different swingweights. This is because swingweight is a reflection of the weight distribution of the entire club. A club feels heavier during the swing as the balance point nears the head, and lighter as it nears the grip.

Feel in golf is never so important as it is in putting, and Bellum Winmore believes that golfers should be able to tune their putters to suit their own personal strength and stroke characteristics. That is why every Bellum Winmore Milled Putter is available with back weighting from 10g to 100g.

With putters, as in life, it’s important to find proper balance.

Adjusting the feel is part of the Bellum Winmore process. That’s a plus.

 

Alignment

Bellum Winmore-14

Line or no line. You have the choice. As a no-line guy, that’s a huge option. Every custom putter I have ever ordered has been line-less, which is probably why only-with-lines production putters don’t last long in my bag. Bellum Winmore gives you the option. It’s as easy as using a drop down menu on their ordering page. Can you imagine what it would take for you to get a putter from another big company without a line? Ask your buddy how much he paid for that line-less Newport 2.

As I mentioned before, I also appreciated the presence of the thick top line when it came to lining up the putt. The position of the cavity also ties in nicely for alignment. The short neck seems to get itself out of the way so you can really see the relationship between the ball and the face.

 

Accuracy

Here is the real measuring stick of the Bellum Winmore: accuracy. No putter is going to make it in the market if it misses the hole with tiresome regularity. Here is how our testers faired with the 707.

BW-707-score

I think that an 84 is a solid score from a first-time offering, from a brand new company. Our testers were a little shaky at 5’, commenting about both the lack of line and head-heavy feel. Once they had taken a few more putts, accuracy jumped dramatically. Another interesting thing was that more than one tester mentioned how nice the putter would feel with a bit more grip weight. This was unprompted by me. I didn’t mention Bellum Winmore’s weights at all. Looks like the Bellum Winmore guys really understand their product.

 

Bellum Winmore-17

Fit For Stroke

Don’t change your stroke. Change your putter.

The (FIT FOR STROKE™) concept was developed by PING, yet another genius fitting system they have developed for golfers. It works hand-in-hand with the iPING Putter App which is highly suggest everyone getting (IT’S FREE!). You might be surprised to find out that the stroke you think you have isn’t the stroke you actually have.

This addition to the MGS reviews will allow you to become a more consistent putter by matching you with models that better fit your stroke type. They will be broken down into three categories: (1) Straight – for face balance putters (2) Slight Arc – for mid toe hang putters (3) Strong Arc – for toe down putters

“Results from hundreds of player and robot tests at PING offer overwhelming scientific support for the effectiveness of fitting for stroke. In recent years more diagnostic tools and testing equipment have become available, and the results prove that a golfer’s consistency improves when their putter balance matches their stroke type. It was interesting to observe that golfers putt more consistently with stroke-appropriate models, but they also show a personal preference for these models, too. Prior to putting with them, golfers are drawn to models that fit their eye, even before they fit their stroke.” says PING.

The Bellum Winmore 707 is a: Slight Arc

Ordering a Bellum Winmore

I started this article talking about risk in the golf market, from a company’s perspective. A consumer ordering a product from a new company is also a risky venture. Let’s see what Tim has to say about ordering and the future of Bellum Winmore.

What is the process for ordering a Bellum Winmore putter?

Bellumwinmore.com is a fully functional commerce website where putters can be spec’d out and purchased via credit card or Paypal. Additionally we are working toward making our putters available at select pro shops along the east and west coasts.

What can a golfer expect when he or she games a Bellum Winmore putter?

Gaming a Bellum Winmore putter means you can expect the same pleasing feel at impact from model to model. In addition, our customers can rest assured that their sightline is in line with the COG.

Can you give us a glimpse of things to come at Bellum Winmore?

We have a cache of production ready designs that we’re extremely excited about. Right now it looks like 2014 will yield three releases in addition to the 707. We have plans to increase our grip and head cover offerings as well.

 

The Bellum Winmore Secret Weapon: $229

If you are stepping into the ring with Scotty Tyson, you had better have something special. The fact that the Bellum Winmore 707 is a solid putter is an excellent start, but there are lots of excellent putters in the market. Let’s think about that line-less Newport 2 I mentioned before. How much would it cost to get one? Likely thousands, if you could even find one on the secondary tour market. At Bellum Winmore, you can get a 707 with or without a line for $229.

Now settle down. I am not saying that the 707 is the same as a Circle T NP2. I can’t make that claim, because I don’t own that Cameron. I could never afford a Circle T NP2, and that’s the point. The 707 can be customized, and had by anyone for $229. That’s a niche in the milled putter market. I can’t think of another company out there offering fully milled, customizable putters at that price. And remember, it’s a nice putter.

Bellum Winmore-10

 

It’s Still Risky for Bellum Winmore, But Looks Promising

Bellum Winmore has dove into the putter pool, and shows signs that they will be able to swim rather than sink. I applaud their bravery, and belief that they are producing a putter that will not only hold its own in the putter corral, but also blaze the trail for the new models that follow. Hopefully consumers will match their bravery, risking the $229 to order a putter that is customized to his or her preference. Honestly, the consumer gets the better risk position. I’ve played the 707 and talked to Tim at Bellum Winmore. If I wanted one of these putters, I’d PayPal that $229 with feelings of excitement and expectation, not anxiety and trepidation. In this case, the company and the consumer should both Win More.

Overall looks like a very nice putter. I would like to see an option for a deep milled 707 in the black finish though. Also options for a black shaft and customized paint fill colors would be a nice added touch.

The putters look very nice, but I don’t envy them trying to break into this market. The competition is fierce!

Reply

Tim January 27, 2014 at 12:03 pm

Thanks for taking the time to post, hckymeyer. We are working on a rendering feature to show paint fill options on the order page, but until that is dialed in custom paint can be entered in the special instructions field at checkout. The black deep milled will be available on the website in the next couple of weeks, and we’ll still working on finding a good vendor for black PVD shafts.

It indeed takes courage to drop another Anser clone onto the market. Especially to offer zero customization options other than lie, length, and the existence of a line in the flange.

Reply

Tim January 27, 2014 at 12:32 pm

Hi, Ben. We have, indeed, decided to take a limited approach to custom aesthetics (although custom paint fill and face milling are both options). We’ve decided to focus on performance by giving the golfer the ability to dial in their putter with a vast array of back weighting options. We’re also in the process of adding two new pure grips, as well as offering Super Strokes to the mix. We have two additional putters in production that will provide a fit for strong arc and sbst strokes.
Thanks for taking the time to post, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Ben
How can you write zero options and then list options right after that? You also need to add to your list: 3 styles of face milling, paint fill options, 10 different counter weights, and soon to be 4 head styles.

I am curious where you found a more customizable putter for $229.

Don’t you see that offering ANY customization options at that price point is unique?

Another great looking putter on the market, which is very nice for us golf consumers. But yeah, risky for the business owner. There are some interesting options- milling, back weighting, custom paint fill, etc. And my first impression was the same as stated in the review- clean. I like clean, so this appeals to me. And then there is this, “The world leader in golf equipment testing, mygolfspy.com…” in reference to BW entering the 2014 Most Wanted mallet test. Nice. Kudos to BW for jumping right into the fray. Nice, professional looking website as well. If/when I am in the market for this style of putter, BW will likely be on the short list. I’m more of a mallet-style putter guy, so we’ll see how they do in the test. Good luck!

Very nice looking putter and the weighting option seems like a super way to adapt feel to personal preferences, as long as one can conveniently get one’s hands on a few different weights to be able to experiment. Tough market, but best of luck to the guys at Bellum Winmore. I have a lot of respect for people taking a risk to pursue something they’re passionate about.

I am not a huge fan of Anser style putters, but I do really like the simple looks/lines of this 707 putter. I went to the website, and I must say I like both the deep milling, and the black color option. Anyway to combine those two options??? As for the backweights, great idea. Are they easily removable/replaceable? If ordering, can someone order say 4 weights, try them, determine the best fit, and then return 3?

There seems to be no way to contact you on your website, at least that I can see. I can buy (if I guess a bit), but I can’t talk to you? How do ask questions? How do I get in touch with you? How do customers call back? Etc.

Making putters is hard. Letting customers buy clearly terrific putters should be easy. Inasmuch as this seems to be the only way I can communicate with you, I’ll chance it. Perhaps we should talk.

Thanks for listening. I’ll stand by.

I really like the looks of this putter. Clean, crisp and milled. Definitly my preference, and as a person that are fairly sensitive to swingweight, the possibility to fine tune this seems like brilliant idea. Whats the “standard” swingweight, and which if any backweight is used then?

I hope I can snag the win, that way I can be the first person to sport one of these in Sweden, maybe?

For me, the think that would really seal the deal towards getting one of these would be a custom option to adjust the loft a little. I like putting with a bit more forward press than you average golfer, so 1-1,5 degrees more loft would be ideal. I have looked into Byron Morgan and Xenon for this option, but they are so very expesive. An option to add loft for 229 bucks would be a steal.

That’s a nice looking putter. I would love to be the first person in Sweden to sport one of those! Sign me up for the competition!

As a person who are sensitive to swignweight/balance I find the idea of variable counter weights very interesting. Also nice with some good customization options at no extra charge.

However, for my own part one thing that would be even better is an option to get the club with a little more loft. I like putting with a bit of a forward press, so and option to add 1-1,5 degrees of loft would be sweet. I have looked into Byron Morgan and Xenon for this very reason but they are so expensive.

(If this post apperas twice it is because my first one seemed to dissapear, so I wrote it again. If both shoudl reappear…sorry about that)

Very impressive piece. Craftsmanship and quality look top notch. Clean lines and simplicity make the 707 a desired try. Pricing is good for an entry company also, although the quality looks equal to putters of higher price points. Very nice!

The 707 is a good example of form fitting function. It is aesthetically pleasing and appears that it would put a good roll on the ball. I be happy to have one in the bag.

Great review on a really good looking putter. If you could add the ability to include three sight lines to it, this could be a potential gamer. Refreshing to see a milled putter that doesn’t break the bank, but still maintains high quality standards and attention to detail.

Ummm you do know that Cleveland sells milled putters (their Classic series) for around $100 and sells high quality ones (the Never Compromise stuff) as well for a premium? Everyone always talks about how important Scotty Cameron putters are when the best put I have ever used was a Never Compromise blade from 5 or so years back and the Classic blades feel amazing as well.

Good Morning! Love the look and the price point of this putter. Question is, will this club be available at B&M, or only online?? I know that for most of the guys that I know, getting hands on with a $200+ putter makes it a LOT easier to sell if the name is not Cameron.

As far as the web interface goes… pretty clean. More options as far as paint-fill colors, and counterweights in dropdown boxes would be nice. (nitpicky I know….)

Great job all around.

Hi, Nic.
B & M will be likely be limited to a small number of pro-shops in California and New York for the foreseeable future. We are working on adding a color rendering feature to the website, but it’s still a little ways out. The dropdown for the weights should be reality in the next week or two. Thanks for checking us out, and if I can assist you further please don’t hesitate to call or email.

For a newbie, this is really a well thought out putter. Seems to combine the best of a lot of other manufacturers. Good luck to these guys. Will be curious to see if any pros decide to take a whirl.

Hi, Fred.
Just to be clear, deep milling is an option on the satin finish, and will be available for the black finish in the very near future.
Thanks,
Tim

Any chance that the putters will eventually be available with an exchangeable grip weight kit so that customer experimentation – even if only in a pro shop setting – would be possible?

Reply

Tim Shaughnessy January 30, 2014 at 6:21 pm

Hi, Sorey.
There is no immediate plan to change the design on our counterweights to make them changeable without removing the grip. The saving grace is the pure grips can be easily blown on and off with an air compressor. Creating a multi-weight kit is a great call, and one we will definitely consider.
Thanks,
Tim

Really intrigued by the ability to get a fully milled, custom putter for such a reasonable price. Also, interested in trying a putter without the alignment line which has always been a distraction for me.

Love the look of this putter. And its about time a company offered so many different counter weights. If only I had $230 to spend right now, I’d be all over it!

Can counterweighting accommodate all weight preferences? I would have thought that some would like to adjust the weight of the head might be as well.

Tim Shaughnessy January 30, 2014 at 6:23 pm

Hi, George.
Right now the head weight is a static offering. I’m not sure I totally understand your question, so please email me at your convenience if you would like to discuss further.
Thanks,

Clean look although I’ve been using putters with orientation guides for so long that this looks a little disconcerting. Checked the “products” section of the website – didn’t see an option for a lefty model……?

This putter looks exciting and customization of a putter is log over due for the regular player. As a short person getting a putter fitted is nearly impossible especially at the higher end of the spectrum. Good luck in your endeavor.

The putter is gorgeous and the review is first class. I like the concept of the “WINMORE” name, as I did with the “SeeMore” putter. I can’t wait to see who will come out with the “FeelMore” or “MakeMore” model. That would definitely appeal to me. And then, someone can combine them all into an ultimate “SeeFeelMakeWinMore” putter.

These putters look fantastic. I would LOVE to get my hands one one. Thoughts: i’d have a tough time choosing the lie angle and the counterbalancing through the website and trust that I made the right choice without an in-hand demo. Knowing that these are custom made means that you have to choose on the fly. Also, I’d love to get the copper/brass one on the splash page. Absolutely gorgeous and unique.

Best wishes!
Tim

love the option of deep or shallow milling, ive lately been an insert guy, but i never liked mushy inserts. conversly when i have used non-insert putters, ive never particularly cared for smooth- faced models…

I like the custom capabilities of the entire club. Can we also modify or change the lie and loft and choose a custom grip also, with limitations of course. We are evaluating putters to use with our system in demos. I’m very much interested in helping with your exposure to the market and professional players as a start-up company in the industry.

Liked everything I read and had seen about this putter and new company. Decided to take the shot and buy one. Purchased mine in March. Putts great, feels great. Without any doubt the best I’ve ever owned! Tim, (the co-owner) couldn’t have been more helpful and confirmed over the phone my choices for paint fill, weighting, etc. Went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable with my order. Personal service is hard to find. This guy was great. Been playing since I was in my teens. Am 60 now,(8 hdcp.) and it was one of my better decisions on golf equipment. I believe Bellum Winmore has a very bright future!
