On the 8th of March a box arrived at my house with a new putter. I loved my original Gunboat, but the footprint of it was annoying me in the bag. It was annoying as hell. You can see it here how 'long' it was and it was popping out, and it was even more pronounced when using the cart bag. https://www.instagram.com/p/BPTSvTlhOwG/ But as I am in the end the Putting Pirate I was very reluctant to change my money maker. Those are the stats from my original that are a pretty good representation of its performance over 18 and 9 holes. It's a club I can definitely rely on together with my trusty 56 degree wedge that usually leaves me with a 3footer to the flag. Anyway. One bored evening, few too many whiskeys, yadi yada I have the gunboat mini. I actually changed my trusty grip to a fatso 2.0 from a scotty grip i loved but rest stayed the same. The first round we didn't really like each other that much leaving me with a nasty 3.0 GIR puts I mean 3 x 3putts was very annoying on the day, and if not the fact that Ive made 2 putts from the fringe and about 30 feet the putter would be swimming with the fishes by now. I decided to practice more, and give it another shot. And then another. And another. I played with the putter for about 20 rounds and actually my puts per hole declined by 0.09 but my GIR puts went up by 0.05. I mean those numbers are negligible in the big scheme of things, but hey Here they are after 20 rounds: The feel on both is insane, the ball rolls off the face like crazy so if you like that style of a putter - i haven't found a better one yet. A definite 5/5 from me. Any questions - ask
