I find it interesting that most of the images posted of the Edel putters are typically very simplistic in alignment markings. Most of them have very few lines on them.

@jsgolfer, when you were fitted did they try out any alignment lines on the putter? If so, then how off did they make you aim compared to the putter you had made for you? 

I always found it interesting how one two lines can totally throw off your ability to line up a putter.

You are dead on, during the fitting I was pretty good with one line, but add two or three lines and I would be way offline.  He even did just dots and it comes out that I aim the putter more accurately when there were no lines.  Go figure.  And I was way off with three lines on a putter.  No wonder I missed so many putts with my old putters.  :~(

Nice. I'm itching to get mine. My fitting was two weeks ago. I haven't seen any emails from them, but from what I've gathered it seems about a month for the putter to arrive. Patience is hard!

I received mine in 21 business days from the fitting. Which is about what I expected from the email, 17 business days to make and a couple of days for shipment.  

I went to putting green and practiced with it, however they had just punched the greens so I made some putts and missed some putts but the feel so far is great. Playing later today, so we'll see how that goes

It's Wednesday.

How come we don't have an update?! :whistle:

 

Your wedges and putter look great!  I'm very envious and wish I were liquid enough to get myself irons and Edel wedges and putter.  Haha.

First round with it, I had a hard time getting a feel for the greens but the greens had just been punched and sanded right before I played.  Second round, which was today, was much better, although the greens were also punched and sanded.  Will be nice when I can play on a normal green.  But after two rounds, it is going well.

Today's round at Championsgate National Course went well.  42-36-78 Greens were in really good shape and I only had 1 three putt which was from 70 feet.  Can't wait to play with this for years.

I was just fit for an Edel putter this morning.  The fitting is great...very analytical, one step at a time.  The only part that was tough for me was determining the weights required for proper distance control.  My stroke itself is still so inconsistent that it was tough to evaluate, but I think I got the best combo (of head/grip weighting) for me.

I can't wait for it to show up.  My old putter had me aiming off to the right (and then "pulling" puts unconsciously to compensate), so I'm excited to try it out.  I wanted something very minimalist in the stampings...all paint fill one color, and nothing on the face (other than the dots).

    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better. 
    • Update - I sent an email to Arccos support about my Caddie Link order, again, and received this prompt reply (in part): "... We did begin fulfilling pre-orders at the end of September and then the first week of October our manufacturer informed us that due to COVID they are unable to acquire the needed materials to complete further devices for the next couple of weeks so shipments have halted for the time being. Shipments of the devices will commence the first week of November. We greatly apologize for this delay and issue and once they send yours out we will be sure to send you tracking and status updates."  
    • Hi all, I was fit into both the Mizuno JPX 921 SEL irons (which is a combo set of 6-GW Mizuno JPX 921 tours and then 4-5 JPX 921 Forged) and the Taylormade P770 irons.  I hit both pretty well, and thought the Mizunos had a slightly better feel but the Taylormades went slightly further.  Both had good spin rates and descent angles, although the Miznuo was slightly better on those factors for me.  I feel pretty torn between the two, I like them both a lot looks wise.  My fitter said it was a really close and tough call but that at the end of the day he would probably suggest the Mizunos for me because they're cheaper to get customer shafts and grips with, the lie can be bent more, the higher center of gravity helps a small amount with my miss (a hook), and they will last me longer as I continue bringing my handicap down.  On the other hand, the P770s are a touch more forgiving and go a little further, so it's a tough call for me. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts between the two or advice or perhaps would just like to share which they would pick in my shoes. Thank you.
