  1. It's here, arrived friday, but I was off island, "let the good times roll" so to speak.
  2. Want one for indoor use that doubles as a simulator, I will buy one as soon as I can find someone to convince my wife it's way more useful than her dining room.
  3. honestly, a combination of both, skill of a repeatable stroke, but a putter that fits that stroke, correct length, weight, comfortable grip, Imo, allows you to develop feel, distance control. So as the evolution of equipment marches forward its worth trying to see if its helpful or not. Kind of like the adjustable drivers and sliding weights to dial in your ball flight, if your an inconsistent ball striker probably not going to help much, or the putter grips that are designed to help eliminate excessive hand and wrist movement. That being said, we aren't robots, and mechanics change day to day, as do the feels you register, I think if we have done our due diligence getting equipment that fits our game then it's up to the skill of the player to perform.
  4. If the rain stays away, playing today, wish the runner was here, live look to my testing facilities. Plays on a loop.
  5. That is what the testing is for. We will see.
  6. From 30 feet, excellent, if it exterminates all those pesky 3 putts, could be a keeper.
  7. Awesome results for the first time on course.
  8. Looks like awesome results for a first time on course.
  9. As the only blade style player and reviewing the latest MSG best blades for 2024, the runner putter has a lot of competition. My present gamer TM tp del monte7, When I miss its left, more a stroke issue than putter issue, but with the adjustable weight system of the runner design, I am hoping to adjust to minimize the damage of human error. My personal benchmark for short game shots is 36 or less strokes. I say short game to include chipping, bunker shots when I miss the green in regulation. Obviously sloppy putting does not fit into the equation. I don't change putters often, did have a brief dalliance (2 months) with a spider a year or so ago, just really couldn't get comfortable with distance control on longer putts. So, if the runner blade is to find a spot in my bag, it will have to earn it with performance. p.s. who is missing all those 5-foot putts in the MSG testing?
  10. Looking good guys, maybe as a blade guy it takes longer.
  11. In my fitting with Simon, he demonstrated how to adjust the weight settings, really easy, The self fitting instructions are also easy to follow.
  12. Start with a flat if you can, and for sure good shoes.
  13. Bon Dia, Minha mais sincera gratitde to The MGS staff and Runner Golf for selecting me for this testing opportunity. I will be reviewing the Runner Blade Style putter. A brief bit about me and my golfing abilities, or lack thereof, Getting close to 70 years old, golfing for 40 of them, (still aceless), clinging to a 14 hdcp. Presently, my #$%! driver has developed a rather defiant attitude and refuses to find a fairway, but in spite of that, I find I enjoy this game more than ever. My main competition these days is really just me, and that voice that says a 236-yard carry from a sidehill fairway lie, over a ravine, to a small tilted green is doable (it never was, and it surely isn't now). . My game has changed as the inevitable aging process marches on, seemingly unchecked. Regardless of my attempts to hold it at bay with stretching and exercise programs, I realize the short game has taken on even greater importance, so that is really the area I have been focused on improving. I am very excited about this opportunity to test the new Runner Blade, and I am especially hoping that with the adjustment features available, I can dial in the best configuration for my stroke. I thought of a few different methods of testing, contrast and comparing to my present putter, or going all in on the Runner putter, I've decided total immersion with the Runner putter would be best for me. I am not a putter collector, used only two in the last 20 years. I really want to be able to develop an honest appraisal of the feel, distance control, and consistency of this putter, and I believe that would be the best approach for me. Testing will include, of course, an indoor home mat, trying different weight positions, and analyzing the results. Hopefully, this will help to dial in the settings to fit me. Outdoor putting greens, one of which is relatively flat but large, good for distance control, also has a fringe area to putt from. The second one is larger with many undulations, which is good for testing speed control and your green reading abilities. Last but certainly not least, On course, green speed is usually between 8.5 and 10.

Packaging and wrapping offered more than adequate protection, I get the impression that these aren't the people that just throw your order in a box, tape it shut, slam a shipping label on it and call it a day. So very first impression was a positive one. Also included was the combination torx screw wrench for adjusting the weights and disassembly of the putter head. Head cover is top quality, best I've seen, bit snug at first but it should loosen up in time, magnetic closure so for the anti-velcros' out there...no worries. The training flyer has the contact info, QR code. Flip it over and it can be used as a hole target. Just thought that was a clever touch. And finally...the good stuff, The Runner putter presents itself very well, the red, black and silver components flow together nicely. Doesn't demand your attention, but I think most people after a first glance would certainly want a closer look. Yes, it is larger than a "conventional blade", but I didn't really fell the least bit threatened by its' size. Almost forgot to mention the MGS logo etching, nice surprise. Overall, first impression, Quality product, assembled with care using first class components. Apprehensions; (maybe) head weight feels lighter than my present putter, and there may be a glare issue with Aluminum head. I will be putting some miles on this "runner" shortly.
