Tristan, thanks for this post! Sounds like you had an excellent experience, and I hope the Edel putter helps you shave a few strokes off your scoring average.
About SDGI... I've met Jack from the Aimpoint session Erik and Dave hosted last Summer here in Socal, and also talked to him at the Waite/Mayo clinic held at SDGI last Spring. He is a gentleman. And while I haven't had an Edel fitting yet, when I do, I'll be using SDGI for sure as they seem like good people.
Tristan, a few questions for you... What is the lead-time from Edel to get the putter shipped to you? Like 4 weeks?? Just curious.
Lastly, does Edel offer any different finishes on their putter heads? For instance a 'black' finish like some of the Scotty putters? While I like the fitting process, I'd like to see something a little more aesthetically pleasing. And if I'm going to drop the cash on a custom putter/fitting... I'd be willing to drop even more cash if I could have it tricked out so that it was a 'one of a kind'.
