Aimpoint lesson - EXPRESS READ or MIDPOINT READ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi All

 

I searched the forum but don't find this topic anywhere.

 

I will have an opportunity to take an aimpoint lesson in my area. 

The class is offered either EXPRESS or MIDPOINT read.

 

My understanding is that

 

EXPRESS - less expensive, more simple, no Chart required! (big plus) but still accurate

MIDPOINT - more expensive, very technical, involve chart but super accurate

 

For all the aimpointer out there, what class I should take?

Can I learn the midpoint and apply to express or vice versa?

 

I know using the chart is not illegal or cheated but it will be way cooler to be able to putt without looking at the chart.

I was even think about trying to memorize it LOL...

 

Thank you for all your advice here.

 

Saenar

I didn't realize there were 2 types of aimpoint classes. @iacas is very knowledgeable and I think he might be certified. He could probably answer. I just wish they put one on closer to me!!

Go Midpoint. 

 

I believe the express read was invented to help teach kids aimpoint. 

 

With midpoint knowledge, you can learn the express read in like 10 minutes.

Thanks for all inputs guys.
I will probably check the midpoint out then.
Hope to understand some basic with express read though. Do you think it can be self learned? Or need another class?

The midpoint read is more accurate and already takes hardly any time at all.  (A little bit of practice and you will be able to get your read in 10-15 seconds)  Don't even worry about the express read. :)

I took the full read class (back at the beginning before Midpoint was created) and then Midpoint after that was added and Midpoint is useful with or without a chart anyway.
