Introducing Armsgain Model-01 Putter - HiBiKi Steel.
Armsgain Model-01 Putter - By Yuji Numazawa, One product the Armsgain Model-01 Putter a design now touted in Japan for being one of the most well balanced in the golf industry, In 1985 Yuji Numazawa met Gene Sarazen and Carsten Solheim who both after speaking with him recommended he create the perfect putter, back then he was working for Honma Golf and that year he retired from the company to pursue his own dreams.
Numazawa-san travelled to the United States to connect with the aura that American golf had surrounding it and after returning to Japan a year later joined Bridgestone sports in 1987. A total of 30 years experience for top manufactures working with tour pro's and amateur players, then a long period of silence as he lost motivation in 2008.
Shortly after Numazawa was casually asked to design a putter for one of Japan's rising players from that moment on his passion and enthusiasm was re reignited to its strongest level ever, shortly after coincidentally Mercedes-Benz reached out to Numazawa-san to produce a limited edition putter with an "inseparable relationship of beauty and function" It was released in limited numbers ( 200pcs ) and sold close to $3,000 USD, all pieces sold in under 1 month.
Numazawa-san considered the fact that 40% of the score comes from a player's skills on the green and that the putter was truly the most important club to master in the bag and along with skill the player needed a tool an extension of their vision of the ball rolling into the cup.
The base material of this product, SUS304 stainless steel made in Sweden, is a steel material that boasts the highest quality, which is extremely rare among SUS304 stainless steel.
The content of unnecessary impurities is extremely low, the balance and uniformity of the additives required as a stainless steel component are very excellent, and it is the finest stainless steel material that is most suitable for putter heads in every sense.
Impurities are almost zero and the component distribution is excellent, and the components in the base material are outstandingly uniform, which creates the best feel.
In order to create the ultimate feel, this series is a truly luxurious full-milled putter that has been machined from the ingot in a completely integrated manner and expresses a precise design without any deviation.
The moment you hit the ball on the green field, there is deep and delicate feedback, and by appealing to the golfer's sensibility sharply, a sense of distance and a sense of direction are cultivated with each stroke.
Among the existing putter base materials, it will be the highest grade series that quickly adopted the steel material that has excellent quality and functionality unlike any other.
SUPER DLC (super diamond-like carbon) is a surface treatment technology and a general term for amorphous carbon films with diamond-like carbon bonds.
Various processes such as PVD method such as ion plating method and sputtering method and plasma CVD method have been devised. Armsgain uses the plasma CVD method. Sweden Steel is the base material because it is the most expensive technology for the process, it is a very strong coating, and its strength is comparable to that of natural diamond, but it is an ultra-thin film of [0.1 micron]. It has become possible to take advantage of excellent features such as the feel of SUS304 HiBiKi steel made by SUS304 in the best possible condition.
