I can not guarantee you the same reaction. But after I've played with mine I couldn't help but thinking "Crap, why didn't I do this sooner?" 

Most of it is finding a fitter I would trust within a reasonable distance.  Nothing local for me, and the amount of time I can get out of town is very limited.

Since I've come around on the looks of the putter. I actually like the Edel name written on the face, especially since it balances out my initials opposite the Edel name. Just curious, how do you like the heel balance? 

After using my putter for a while. I have to say it is now the best damned looking putter I've ever seen. 

I'm usually one to always say "It's the Indian not the Arrow." But, in this case I really think the arrow makes a difference. 

I've had driver fittings and iron fittings and I've even had wedge fittings and they are fine and there are definite gains to be made. But I cannot say it enough. If you are struggling with putting or not making the gains in putting even after practicing a lot, go get an Edel putter fitting, you will not be sorry. 

One of the great things about people, is that we are each different.  If we were all the same "one of us would be redundant!!" :-)   So you have your initials on the face, and mine is totally clean.

I like the balance of the putter.....  I like the fact I can change the weights to match differences in green speed .. I like the round grip....  lots to like.  Glad it is working so well for you.   I believe the only measure of a putter is that it helps you "make more putts!"  If not get one that does.

It might be worth the drive. I'm actually about 3 hours from iacas. I'm truly expecting this to be the last putter I ever buy. So what's 3 hours over the lifetime of the putter?

If I weren't 5.5 hours away from Erie, I would have already gone to @iacas for a fitting.

Sounds like a lame excuse to me 😜 

I'm 7 hours away from Erie and I still went. Not for a putter fitting though, as I already had mine.

Haha - a slightly different circumstance. :-$

I would have gotten fit for a putter if I needed one. Didn't @colin007 get fit for an Edel putter somewhere nearby?

My dude traveled I think like 2 hours to get fit.

I tried to get fit locally here two years ago but the experience was off-putting so instead I took the money I had allocated for it and got my irons. :-D

    • Bomb and gouge won't go away with this.  Isn't the point of bomb and gouge already admitting not needing to hit fairways.  It has always been an advantage to hit bigger drives, even long ago; there just weren't any real stats to prove that up to 2011 (strokes gained) or so.  One guy on golf channel made a good point about being a bomber and being on the leader board. It's usually the guys bombing it and hitting fairways that appear there.  Bomb and gouge guys are further down.  No matter what they propose, distance will continue to be of the importance it already is.
    • I agree it is a skill. However, based upon the USGA and R&A report, assuming its veracity, the skill of distance has swallowed up the other skills to a large degree. Distance has encroached upon the other skills, the argument goes, to the point that bomb and gouge is the way to go. After all, distance leads to shorter clubs in, closer proximity to the hole, and more putts made—lower scores. They argue that there needs to be a readjustment to the importance of all the skills and the only way to do it is to temper distance. You could arguably do this via course setup and pinching in the fairways even more perhaps. However, unless the rough/obstacles are especially penal, it’s better to hit a wedge from the rough than a short to medium iron from the fairway in most cases.  Your point is merely going in circles. For the purposes of the argument, I assumed that it could be possible. This happens all the time in logical discussion—it’s called arguendo; it’s used often for thought experiments/discussion and in legal reasoning as well    Of course, I agree with you that if it’s not possible then it’s not a good idea. I don’t know how many times I have to say it. I’ve only talked about this further because others have replied to it. See discussion above. 
    • Thanks guys, I will talk to our club pro and go from there.  Rod
    • V, players on the Tour aren’t relying on the MOI. They’re not missing the center very often. Something that physically can’t be accomplished is a good idea? I don’t get that.
    • I think we're both saying the same thing. Maybe it came across as if I were defending MGS's tactic, but I was trying to make the point that what MGS does isn't anything close to science, in fact it is quite antithetical to how science works. If MGS were really scientific in any regard, they would publish their test methods and all the raw data, and encourage experts to prove their conclusions wrong. I'm 99.9% sure that ball manufacturers have extensive data on how their balls performs, probably much more rigorously tested than MGS. I wouldn't be shocked if the big manufacturers like Acushnet have extensive data on their competitor's products as well. Of course, publishing it is a different matter.
