My Member Review

I had the opportunity to review both The Navigator and a competing product which allowed me to focus on the similarities and differences each offers.   I will not provide any details regarding the other product, but this review will have what I feel are the main differentiators between the products.

Pros

  • Customizable: Both in the colors it comes in and how you choose to use it.
  • Adjustability: It has several joints that allow it to be positioned to best suit your eyes
  • Quality: This is a well made product

Cons

  • Cost: This is a fairly expensive training aid for what it is
  • Effort: This one requires a fair bit of effort to use, you have to tighten it on the putter, then add the guide bars
  • Size: Although you could ditch the box and store in a baggie, the box is also part of the setup

Review

When I first received it I was very impressed, the packaging is first rate and screams all-american.

The setup is very straightforward and the included instructions are good.

I've always been a feel putter, I never use the line on the golf ball or putter, but rather just visualize where I want the putt to go.  I will pick a spot between the ball and the hole where I want to hit.   This training aid helps to provide better alignment as you can pick your spot, aim and setup to putt then while holding the putter rotate around to check to see where it's actually pointing.  This is much harder to do without an alignment aid. 

The Navigator comes with two metal pointers which are different lengths and can be used in either position which allows the short end to be in front or behind the putter head.  I prefer to have the short end forward and found the best results using it that way.

Overall this is a high quality putting aid that would provide benefit to most that use it.   I do think it's a better option when you have a dedicated puting area or when you are planning to do a long putting practice session as it is not a quick process to mount it to your putter.

I look forward to continuing to use this and to improve my aiming ability.
