    Interesting on your stats and issues… have you tried the same putting line test from farther away? I’m just curious if you are better at lining up from farther away or if 2 degrees just makes less of a difference at 10+ feet.
    the edel fitting process will definitely be an interesting test of this stuff, my aim was horrible with my old putter… I didn’t get an Edel, but I’d be curious to see how my center shafted seemore did on alignment.
    Thinking through what I’ve been Working on and struggling with, I’m wondering if my alignment on shorter putts just needs Work… my speed has been great, but my putting hasn’t progressed how I want it to.

    I've already got a script in my head of what I intend to tell him 🙂
    I'm going to start with what I think I know, with the clear commitment to being willing to learn that I'm wrong.
    I'm a decent putter, and it's a strength of my game, relative to handicap. I've got years of on-course stats to back this up, including Arccos the past two years. Over my past 15 rounds, Arccos has my putting SG equal to a 7-handicap. I average just over 30 putts per round. There's a consistent pattern in that data, though: I'm a better putter (by SG) from 10–25' than I am from 0–10'. This is true in the data for virtually every round I play. I miss short putts far too often. Going into this test, this is my highest priority. As for my actual setup and stroke: I've posted about this before, that I don't see the correct line correctly. I can set a 4' ruler on the correct line for a straight 8' putt, aligned with a laser. If I turn off the laser and address a ball at the end of the ruler, the ruler will look to me as though it is pointing almost outside the cup on the left. I have tried moving my head and body around to all sorts of angles without success. If I address a putt from the left side, the line looks correct. Using a home putting analyzer (SwingByte), I therefore tend to aim about 2° right of the cup. My stroke is quirky. Early on, I read Dave Pelz and decided to work on a SBST stroke. Like many who attempt that, I actually ended up with a stroke that tends to move outside the line on my backstroke. Coming into impact, I close the face relative to address, which starts the ball on the correct line, though a line to the left of where I was aimed. On a normal straight putt, my predominant miss is a pull. I'm intrigued, obviously, to see if any of the myriad alignment options on the Edel change my perception of the line. I'm also probably more interested to see if their torque-balanced putter, combined with custom weighting and their grip options, can mitigate some of my tendency to come outside the line on my backstroke.
    Of the four headshapes, the rounded back mallet appeals to me subjectively the least: it's just not a shape I've ever really loved. My baseline expectation is that I'd end up with the fanged mallet: I am currently playing with the Toe Up version of the Odyssey Seven. But if I end up with either of the blades, that is no problem either.

    haha,  "soft opening" for this one.  Once they announce on IG and twitter, etc, I'm sure it'll get hit in waves.  For now, we have 200% chance!!  🤣

    myherobobhope got a reaction from golfish! in Final Reviews: SUB70 949x PRO Hybrid   
    Stumbled upon this, and figured I'd toss my review into the space... I've had my eye on this hybrid since it was announced... Jay reached out the day it was available (shout out to Jay, we won't talk about the fact that it had been in my bag for a few days when Jason told me it was available, he's a busy man!)
    I like my hybrids to be fixed hosel... I'm a little goofy that way, but in my mind, any weight wasted on an adjustable hosel is wasted... I don't adjust my clubs, I don't really experiment with hybrid shafts, and I'm not going to mess with settings enough to justify any lowered performance for a feature I'm not going to use. I've been gaming an Adams 18 degree hybird that allegedly once belonged to Cameron Tringale. This is not a claim worth researching, I pass it one because it explains why the shaft in it is a Tour X 100g... It was a great hybrid, but the shaft was a little much and coming off a back injury, I figured it was time to get into something I had a chance of loading. 
    I'm honestly not looking for a lot out of a hybrid... I need to like the way it looks and feels, it needs to fly about 225 with decently high launch and enough spin that it won't run out more than 10 feet or so. I don't have the lefts with hybrids, but this is built against it... I ordered it because it's well priced, I love Sub70 and they usually throw in a free hat (or visor, if you harass Jason enough).
    Ironically, I paid for the hat... I requested a very specific visor, and was happy to shell out $30 for it... Great hat! It's my favorite, and it's my current avatar. I also paid for the hybrid. $170 out the door... I got a different shaft and a midsized grip... Less than a week from ordering, the club showed up on my door step... I'll also mention that the customer service was excellent as always... there was a small hiccup in the shaft color, but instead of just shipping me the yellow one (As the black was out of stock) they actually called to inform me and make sure that was OK... One of those small touches that shows they are trying to work with customers to deliver a great experience... Jason had walked me through shaft options a few weeks before... he's super helpful and great to talk golf with... though I think he's been crazy busy!
    THE BOX THE BOX, WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
    Sub70 loves to send some swag with their clubs, and this was no exception... I had requested a Sub70 sticker without a drink on it, which was included... The hybrid itself... it and the accessories are SHARP. A well made accessory bag with multiple weights and a torque wrench... Everything looks good, even the weights. The club itself is sharp. People have commented on the toe looking sharp, but it never really stuck out to me... I think it looks great at address and sets up well behind the ball. It's on the smaller side of a hybrid (about the size of my Adams) which is perfect for me. 
    I've had it in bag and on the course for multiple weeks, and it's not going anywhere... I'd have to pull the weights to remember the setup, but I think I have the heaviest in the center and a medium weight in the toe... As I said, I don't struggle with a hook with hybrids, so I didn't really mess with the setup... I like the weight of the head, and my launch parameters hit my needs. 
    The club looks goods, sounds good, and feels good.. I've been exceptionally happy with how it performs on the course. I've hit it from a variety of lies and a number of situations... I have 0 complaints on it. 
    The people who won one can take the time to generate comparison numbers... for me, it was $170 to upgrade a club, and I'm very happy with my purchase... A comparable club from an OEM would be at least $60 more... I'm happy with all my Sub70 club, especially when considering the price and customer service level.
