This is a thread for those who are interested in reading or sharing golf ball comparisons! Personally, I am in the stage of personal ball testing to try to find my next gamer for the next season or two. As such, I have been and am in the process of testing a variety of premium golf balls to see which fits my game and personal preferences. My posts in this site will be coming from off my new website (linked here for those who might want to check it out: https://griffinc6.wixsite.com/golfreviews) and will be in the form of a head to head matchup between two of the balls I am considering. During my tests, I will be taking two different models to the course and playing 9 holes with each in the same round, same day, and same conditions. In my posts, there won't be much in the way of technical data other than distance (measured via Shot Scope) but will rather be how I experienced the balls in terms of distance, spin, flight characteristics, performance and fell around the green, putting, quality, durability, and consistency. Once again, for my posts here, these are by no means a scientific test, but rather what I prefer, what I see, and how the balls perform for me. Therefore whatever performs for me might not translate to your game or your experiences with these products. I also invite everyone to post your own comparisons, head-to-heads, and reviews here as well! Now that that is out of the way, let the discussion begin!
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?
