  2. Hi all, Question on anyone's experience with Edel Torque Balance putters. With some history... Putting has been an issue for me over the last few seasons, I keep stats, and lose about 2.5 stokes gained on the green. Putting lessons and putters have been common, along with a decent amount of drills and practice. It's made a big difference, but I still have frustrating days!! While clutching at straws on you tube, I saw an edel putter fitting that looked comprehensive and well thought through. So after a lot more research I gave it a go. Fitting done, counter banance on grip, 21g heel weight. Single white dot alignment, E-3 arrived. So far so good, but a test I always do on new putters, 1. Check the grip is fitted straight (OEMs miss this so often!!) 2. Find the sweet spot - age old method of tapping the putter head with a pencil to find the location which doesn't twist. Then confirming with some actual putts with some video. What I found was a sweetspot about 12mm heel side of the alignment aid and centre of head. While this isn't really a surprise, given the toe milling and weight in the heel, I was a bit disappointed that this wasn't allowed for in the design. It's the only putter of this style I've tested, so I'm not sure if it's common in other stroke balance/Torque balanced designs? I contacted Edel, but had no reply. I've since removed the heel weight to try and move the CoG back and it's been pretty successful. It's made the putter more forgiving on toe misses ( which were very common with such a heel biased CoG). Has anybody else had issues like this? Particularly with other brands of toe up? Any ideas if the counter Balance in the grip may also effect the sweetspot (given its a dynamic system I'm sure the centre of percussion is somehow effected!?) Any thought on other solutions to move the CoG back to centre?
  3. Mornin' fellow GolfSpies! Will be visiting Edel Golf HQ outside of Austin, TX today. Any questions for David Edel and the rest of the gang?
  4. So Mr_Theoo and I caught wind of a brand new Golf Galaxy opening up here in good ol' Ohio. Since its still like 2* outside (I saw 50* for the forecast next week!) there wasn't much else to do so we decided to go check it out. Mr_Theoo will have more info on the store and some of the other things we tested. It's funny that any of this happened today. Theoo and I met up for breakfast before we went to Golf Galaxy and most of our conversation revolved around the putter that xMassacrex recently bought and posted from Edel and how we wished there was an Edel fitter closer to us because we both loved the look and the story behind xMassacrex's putter. I'm also in the market for new wedges and really wanted to try the Edel wedges too. I know that Edel has been getting a lot of coverage on MSG lately and after my experience today I think they 100% deserve every bit of it they are getting. So we show up and Theoo was talking about the putting green he had heard of and that it was huge so we start wandering over in that direction. In the distance I see a very nice display with the word Edel on the side. I look at Theoo and ask him if he sees what I see. (He didn't. I swear I had to point it out to him about 3 times before he finally saw it.) So in our excitement we head over there to check it out. We were met by a gentleman who had an Edel shirt on who smiled and introduced himself. His name was Bobby Dean. So we start talking to him (at this point the display was still buttoned up) about putters and mentioned xMassacrex's and he knew exactly what we were talking about. Side note – I starting talking to him about xMassacrex's story and he said that the person who posted it was really not supposed. I mentioned how cool I thought it was that xMassacrex saw his putter, thought how he wished it was his, only to find out that it was. A little about Bobby directly from the Edel website: Bobby Dean Director of Business Development Bobby took up the game of golf at a very early age in West Texas. He began his career in golf in 2002 by studying under Golf Magazine Top 100 Instructor and Golf Digest Top 10 Teacher Chuck Cook at Barton Creek Resort and Spa in Austin, Texas. Bobby was recruited by Edel Golf for his expertise in instruction, club fitting, and club design. Bobby became an Edel Certified Fitter in November 2004 and has since trained and developed over 90% of Edel's fitting and sales accounts worldwide. Bobby continues to play the lead domestic and international business development role at Edel in addition to serving as head club fitter and overseeing the training and development of new Edel Certified Fitters across the U.S. and the world. Anyways – after talking for a little while he asks if we'd like to get fit. Uhh yes please! Theoo was up first. I took him a total of about 20 minutes to fit him. They look at many components while fitting. The first thing Bobby did was have Theoo grab a putter that was a close comparison to the one he games. He puts a mirror on the face of it and has him line up facing a green laser as in the picture below. The laser reflects off the putter face onto the black backdrop to show where you're aiming at alignment. From there he adjusts the actual putter head type, the lie angle, the hosel, the offset, etc. Once he has the laser directly in the center of the backdrop its time to weight the putter. To do this Bobby had him hit a string that he had laid out and the goal was the stop the ball at the string. When everything is said and done he gives you your measurements and you are free to order from them. It's a very cool process. Bobby did the same thing for me although it took him about 30 minutes to fit me. I was apparently more difficult. I haven't felt a putter like that ever (granted I've never been fit). However, that's not where the fun ended. We also told him that we had always wanted to hit the wedges but same story, because there isn't anywhere close we couldn't. Luckily for us, he brought a few along just incase anyone inquired. He took about 20 minutes or so with us on the range to help us figure out the grind we should be looking at based on our swings. I have to say that I'm in love with the putter and I will (once the funds are in place) invest in an Edel putter sometime soon, however, the wedges are what really won me over. I've hit all sorts of wedges but I've never hit a wedge that felt as crisp and right as this. I'm a very steep player so I tend to take beaver pelts with most of my wedges. I also have a tendency to chunk my wedges quite a bit as well. He put me into the digger grind and oh man that thing is amazing. I can't wait to purchase a few wedges from them as well. It was a very eventful day and I will say that Bobby from Edel is an absolute gentleman and a scholar. If you ever get the chance to work with him at all you will not be disappointed. I will also say that if you are in the market for a putter or a wedge anytime to try and find a fitter. If you have to drive I'd even say that its worth it at this point. I'm really not trying to sound like a homer but everything they do and put they name on is really top notch. The only thing we weren't able to hit were the irons. We're trying to talk Bobby into bringing them back to Columbus at some point but we'll see if that happens. If they are anything like what I hit today I have to image that they are awesome!
