Is anyone playing Toulon putters? Thoughts on them?
I have to admit that I haven't payed too much attention to them but I kind of like their naming concept of naming their putters after cities. I just saw the came out with a PDX prototype which has me intrigued.
Does anyone own a Toulon putter model that matches the name of their city? This is a terrible way to pick a putter in principle but if you like to collect them, I have to think having a putter of a city that is connected to you somehow would be a draw.

Have tried out a few of the models,  just didn't do a lot for me to want to actually put one in the bag.  Feel is ok but couldn't knock out my current putter.  I putt with them when I find them at golf stores and when I am on a break during the most wanted testing at MGS headquarters.  

 

PDX proto seems like it is trying to capitalize on the popularity of Justin Thomas' Scotty and the Day and Johnson Taylor Made Spider.   Not a bad thing,  but the recent success of those putters has made them popular.

 

I doubt anyone will every name a putter after my city :)   But that isn't unique to the Toulon line.   Cameron's original releases were named after Cities that he lived in and the boutique brand Sunset Beach named their putters after beaches in the Carolinas.

I had a Memphis when it was first released. I really liked it a lot. The craftsmanship, the milling the fact it a small family owned/run business.

The only negative for me was the mallet was on the smaller side of what i am used to. So ultimately i moved on from it.

Heres what blew me away. I had met Sean Toulon for the first time at the PGA Show 4 months earlier (jan 2016)

When i went to the show this past January (about 8 months after movong on from the Memphis) i was in the Callaway booth. Sean saw me inmedistely came up and said hello. After a short amount of time, he said to me, I know the Memphis was too small of head for your liking.

Now i had not spoken to Sean since the last show. The fact that he 1) remembered and recognized me was amazing enough in its own right. But the fact he knew my thoughts on the Memphis was mind blowing. He could only have known that from reading comments i had made in the Toulon thread either here or somewhere else. Not negative comments by any means. Just it didn't work for me.

So moving on, he says to ms. You have to see and roll the Indianapolis that will be coming out in a few months.

So he walked me watched me roll it, then introduced me to the one of the lead designers at Callaway for Toulon.

I liked it alot and told him so. But i was blown away by his taking the time and interest in talking to me. When you cant imagine how in demand this mans time is. He has been a major force in the industry for over 30 years, and everyone knows him.

But i tell you. He has "it" and by it i mean the ability to make every person he speaks to feel like they are the most important person he will talk with that day. Im not exaggerating when i say, i think he's a lot like Arnold Palmer in that way.

Back to the putter. I haven't bought it yet as my X7M has been just so good for the last 16 months, im having a hard time letting go.

But i will pick one up at some point for sure.

I have a Toulon Indianapolis that I bought a few weeks back. Build quality is great and premium fit and finish. The shape is a little out of the norm but it works for me. Add to that the great customer service they provide and it is a winning combination. I bought one of the earlier Indy putters that did not have the bead blast done to the top of the aluminum face and Sean corrected it immediately. Sent it out last week and it will be back on Monday.

To the cities question: I live near Columbus and actually like the shape of the putter however being a lefty put that option out to pasture however the indy is about 3 hrs away and does come in lefty. It look a bit to the wild side but hay, if it works success breeds acceptance.

 

To meeting Toulon, I met him at the PGA show this year too and you are correct about the "IT". we talk design concepts and what he concentrates on when coming up with the new looks and names. Very cool and cemented my choice about the INDY.

 

I had a Piretti in the bag and it is a very nice putter to be sure however the INDY in MR model has made more one putts in the latest outing than the piretti has since in the bag.

 

I am happy with the putter

I currently play a Scotty Cameron X7M so it is very similar in size.
