I'm biased because I did the research!
The Edel fitting cart (you saw the picture, right?) has 300 million combinations of putters. At Golf Galaxy/Golfsmith you have, what, 200 combinations of putters? 200 different putters sounds like a lot, but it's no 300 million, especially when most of their variations are strictly related to "this putter head or that one" or "this one is a different length."
Again, with an Edel, you can change:
- shaft length
- shaft flex
- head weight
- head shape
- hosel shape
- hosel offset
- lie angle
And I'm probably forgetting some. Any hosel can go with any other combination, which is why you get so many.
Additionally, every Edel putter is custom made for you. They don't have putters sitting around, and you KNOW that the putter not only "fits" you for your height and putting stance (which is about all you'll get from a big box retailer), but you'll KNOW that you can aim the darn thing too!
Here's the putter I'm having built for myself. It'll be a variable weight putter so on slower greens I can decrease the head weight and on faster greens add to it.
The weights are added when you're doing the speed testing (or else the big weight by the head would throw off the visual look and thus your aim).
I hope to get it here soon. When I do I'll take more pictures and show off the custom stamping I had done.
