I got my new putter this afternoon and headed to the practice greens straight away. Being that I hadn't seen one in the flesh before I decided to get it, I didn't really know what to expect. Anyway it's a great putter and making short putts is ridiculously easy. I hit maybe half a dozen putts with it and then it dawned on me, when addressing a ball the putter looks like a stick man. I've added a picture to show what I mean. It makes me smile every time I look at it, lol

I have a weird mind but it literally jumped out at me and now it's all I can see, not complaining though. Lol

Once you see it, you can't unsee it.

Just like the FedEx logo.

Nice. That will keep me from picking up one. :)

Now you can start drawing faces on your ball.

Hey bud, I only managed to get about half an hour on the practice green and in that time fell in love! It sounds very different to any other putter I've tried in the last few years and kinda reminds me of the original Futura, except with more of a thud at impact? As for distance control, WOW!, this thing puts an awesome roll on the ball and starting it on the right line is easy as can be thanks to the alignment system.
The best part though, putts within 6ft are so easy it's almost criminal and makes it feel like you're cheating. Lol. I'll have more to write once I've putted with it again which should be in a few hours.

Try hitting 3 balls off the heel/center/toe and see what the difference are...for me they were about 8 - 12 " dispersion. Love the distance similarities with less than perfect strikes!

I"m certainly not a good golfer, but the best golfer I know uses this very same putter. and he is /seriously/ good with it. How much of that is the putter, I'm not sure, but that indian sure does fire this arrow true.

definitely skill is the key here--I think he has won the club championship with 3 different putters now :)

Good call, sorry. I'm a crap artist so I left it to the viewer to "imagine" the cape, lol.

I took your advice and it's crazy how similar a distance they all travel. I struggled with it this morning on the practice green and was doubting my choice getting this putter but once I realised the practice green was ridiculously long and slow I went and putted on the 18'th and I'm glad I did. The green was cut the day before and rolled beautifully and filled me with so much confidence. I played a few holes this evening and had a 40ft+ birdie putt that I knew I had very little chance of making so lagged it within a few inches of the hole. The putt was downhill, downgrain and breaking left to right by the way. I'm very quickly falling on love with this putter.

Did some putting practice today and i didnt even notice the little man ;(.One thing that's beginning to irritate me is that there is no alignment line in the crown. Of course you can send it to Scotty and be without a putter for 2 months..
