IIRC, Dave Dunipace also once said he put beads on putters to give the user a place to rest his/her index finger, if so desired.

Also, to a more general point, beads DO give a straighter finish. For example, the Wombat and Wombat3 sometimes don't hold anny turnover shots all the way, and that's the reason I don't bag the Wombat3 over the Patrol.

The (unbeaded) Foxbat absolutely holds the turnover, and if there was a "Foxbat3", I'd probably be bagging it now. Maybe Infinite Discs can put a Foxbat3 into its Infinite Discs line...
