325g head. 50g about 5" down in the shaft. Lines it up well unlike her existing putter.

Nice putter, it's the same head, hosel, and alignment lines as mine.

Looks beautiful. One day I'll get myself one. One day. Haha

Below is what I was told about the pricing.

 

"Putters range from $395 to $585.  The $585 version includes a weight kit that allows you to change the head weight depending on green speeds.  Although I personally use this feature just occasionally, it is worth it and does work."

 

@iacas , at what playing level would you really recommend the $585 version vs. the $395 verison?  Do you believe that it adds more value to the player?

 

From reading the thread I'm assuming that your putter is dialed in and you don't mess around with the weighting, am I correct?

 

Thanks.

OR

You can get fitted for an Edel Putter and not have to worry about what teaching yourself how to aim a putter! :-D

I had an Edel putter fitting in San Antonio a few weeks ago. I have a 7.0 index and generally play pretty well.My putting is inconsistent at best and I routinely miss short putts, especially if there is any real pressure as in a tournament vs. just playing for a few bucks with my buddies. I probably give away at least 3 strokes a round that could legitimately be expected to be holed. Inside 4 feet. Makes me crazy. That's why I went down this road.

 

The fitter was Edel's director of business development and he claims to have done thousands of fittings. I spent about an hour with him and eventually got the specs ironed out. I've used the putter for about 10 rounds now. I wish I could report great success and that it revolutionized my putting. Alas, it has not.

 

My putting continues to be as inconsistent as ever. Some days I have a good feel and putt decently. Other days I have no clue and can't make a 3 footer to save my life, or a dollar. I can honestly say the $400 or so I spent for the putter was a complete waste of money. It feels nice and all but it works just like any other putter I've had - intermittently. I'd love to have the $400.00 back.

 

I don't blame Edel. My putting stroke can overcome any technology thrown at it. I am really curious to know if I were to go through the fitting process again would the specs be the same or close or very different. I seriously doubt they'd be the same. I blame that on my inconsistent stroke, not the putter or fitting.

 

Oh well, I gambled on this and lost. I'm sure it helps many people. I just wish I was one of them.

The purpose of an Edel putter fitting is two-fold:

  1. To get a putter you can AIM very well.
  2. To get a putter you can control distance with very well.

 

Everything else regarding putting - your stroke (many pieces) and your read - are still up to you.

 

I doubt very much that your putter would be different. In fact, Edel will typically build you a new putter if your fitting changes. So, call that business director back up and tell him you are not sure and you'd like to be fit again.

 

You have to give them a chance to make you a happy, satisfied customer. Posting here won't do much.

 

Except that I'll pass this along to people at Edel…

It's a safe bet that your fitting would turn out very similarly.  Remember, that its mostly fitting you for aim, not for an inconsistent stroke.  Sounds to me like you knew going in that you had an issue with nerves, not so much with a putter you couldn't aim.

 

I doubt that my Edel has helped me much on 3 footers either, but on aim, and especially distance control on longer putts - thats where I've improved the most.  Also, I pretty much simultaneously changed my putting stroke per this: http://thesandtrap.com/t/74295/putting-do-not-accelerate-through-the-ball/0_30 and so I really can't say how much of my putting improvement is from the putter. :)

Thanks for your response. I get that the read and stroke can't be magically fixed with a new putter. A fitted one or not. I played yesterday with a scratch player. A very good putter. He watched me and stood behind me and I was not aiming correctly. My distance too is as it always has been. Some days pretty darn good. Some days lousy.

 

I didn't expect posting here to do anything. Just relating my experience. I don't mean to denigrate Edel or their product, or their process. I have no doubt it's good. Just that so far I see no benefit to me.

 

I'll work with it some more and then I'll take your advice and call them back and get fitted again maybe. I didn't realize that was an option.

Beach, my wife has vertigo and found out that she was taking some meds that had a side effect of drying her out. That's what caused the vertigo. Stopped taking those meds and it went away. I think her meds were for hi blood pressure and diverticulitis.
