Brainstorm Putters

Does anyone have any experience with the Brainstorm Happy Putter?  As a tinkerer, it looks like a blast to be able to adjust loft and lie. I've read some good reviews but don't really trust reviews from Golf magazines who get paid to test equipment.  Would like feedback from actual users. Thanks.

 

From Brainstorm:

"Putting conditions change, Putting strokes change, now your putter can change also.  The Happy Putter allows golfers to custom fit themselves everytime they play.  Fast greens, slow greens, grainy greens, no problem.  Trying a new putter stance? No problem.  Frustrated because you are pulling or pushing your putts? We got that covered.  The Happy Putter features an aluminum face pressed against a poly urethane loft shim that provides the perfect balance of feel and feedback to optimize distance control.  The blue anodized finish is not only beautiful and unique, but also extremely durable.  The custom over-sized grip, which has a patent pending, feels great in your hands no matter what grip style you prefer.  With three different lie options, three different loft options, three different off set options, and three different sets of weights, rest assured knowing the putter you need will be in your bag, and while you may not have a tour representative providing advice on how to adjust your putter, you will have access to the free Happy Putter App, which will tell you how to adjust your putter for any conditions you come across.   

Golfers have been waiting a long time for the next big idea in putters, are you Happy now?  

: ) PUTT HAPPY"

It seems like a good concept but my brain just can't get past the looks. If they made one that looked more like a Betti or Scotty I'd be all over it since I like to tinker with things like loft and lie.

Ive demoed one for about nine holes. Wasnt for me as Im a firm believer in the less moving parts the better. Also, for the price, there are several more enticing putter options.

Like the concept. but it appears they want to get paid for the R&D way too soon.

Yeah, that's why I am trying to grab one on Ebay for less than $200.00.  Dick's is selling them for 229.00 with free shipping but I don't want to spend more than $175.00 if I don't have to.  Would be fund to tinker a bit and I could live with the hit if I don't like it.  I can always re-sell it on Ebay.

We had a few of those sitting around the pro shop last year. I was told the rep came back by and picked them up.

There is a complete overhaul of the design (and the price) scheduled to hit the shelves very soon.  I had a chance to see and roll the new Tour Series last week.  They look and putt about 1000 times better that the original IMO.  Same idea with the adjustable loft/lie/offset/weight, but the new Tour Series has interchangeable Alignment Guides.  (similar to what Callaway did with the iTrax putter about 10 years ago, only WAAAAY better.)

The real hurdle that this company faces is the price point.  At $350, 99.95% of the golfing population will choose a Cameron instead. 

 

If you see one of these in your local shop, I would encourage you to pick it up and give it 10 min on the practice green...  You might be surprised.

The problem for me with the new Tour is that it is not a center shafted putter which is the style I prefer.

 i like the redesign, very nice, but $350??? The earlier model colors/design were terrible looking, but aesthetics play a huge role in putters and golf in general, it's the first impression that draws many people to their putter. I really appreciate the ability to tinker without having to actually bend things, but that's too high a price point for me.

I actually don't mind the blue and green colors of the original but I agree on the price.  They may price themselves out of the market.

Abandoned the idea of the Brainstorm and decided to pick up a used Piretti Tour Only putter instead.

PGA Superstore has them on clearance for $99, at least the one near my house did for a bit.

I can get behind them at that price, if it works for you.

LOL I think I still have one of those Cally iTrax alignment kits in a little box. One of the guys at work found it in the glove box of a junk car and knew it was Callaway and had to do with golf and gave it to me. To be honest I had to look it up on the net because I had no idea what it was. If anyone wants it or needs it FREE PM me and I will send to you.

I believe this is based of of the putter that Stacy Lewis is using?
