I bought the same putter a few months back as a lot of the clubs, here in Dubai, where performing their annual maintenance so a lot of greens were treated and therefore significantly slower. I have been using a Bettinardi SS28, which is great on fast greens, but wasn't working for me on slower greens. As soon as I picked up the Ardmore 3 i liked the feel. The Pistol grip is perfect, just the right size and a firm, tacky feel. What i notice is how quickly the ball roles, no skip at all. The insert means I putt the ball significantly further than the SS28 with the same backswing. I'm making 10-15 footers far more regularly and, while i bought it as a fix for the maintenance season, i think its in the bag to stay!!
