Question on two different YETI profiles



The left is a Yellow 4x Yeti, and the right is an Orange 4x Yeti...

However.. the orange one is way stiffer than the yellow and still very grippy.
The orange also has a slightly different profile and is a little less concave than the yellow.

Is this orange one actually a test configuration yeti?

I'm not exactly sure how they make Yeti's. My understanding is that it's just the big bead Aviar mold, which means they must do something while it's cooling in order to make it concave (like set a weight in the middle of the disc or something). Given that sort of manual step at the end, I'd guess the Yeti suffers from much more inconsistency in PLH and concavity than most putter molds. Thus it wouldn't surprise me at all to see some pretty big differences like this from one run to the next. Of course it could also just be a test configuration of the mold, but I wouldn't guarantee that.
