I called Slotline a couple weeks ago....had to call Bag Boy and have them transfer me as the slotline number did not work..they said to go to any store that carried Bag Boy and they could get the Slotline putters. I went to Edwin Watts yesterday, they sell Bag Boy so I figured they could get them.....they ordered a Slotline 693 33" for arrival on friday....the day before a two day tournament.

 

I hope to use it this weekend.....btw, the price was good.

Been trying to get in touch with the head designer for Slotline for months...they seem to have pretty much closed up shop for the most part. They tried to make a big push but just dont see anything from them anymore in regards to PR and marketing.

My Slotline 693 arrived yesterday at Edwin Watts......what a terrific feel!...The 360 gm weight is just what I have been looking for.

 

Previously, I took a 35" Ray Cook Blue Goose putter and had it cut down to 33"...while this worked for a while, the weight is now lighter than it should be....with my stroke it will usually stop right at the hole for a missed birdie or par.

 

With the Slotline 693, the length is 33" and the weight is 360 gm (Cleveland, Odyssey, Nike & Wilson mid mallets are lighter)....so I now have both the length and the weight to roll it to the hole.

 

For my stroke, in/out/in, the mid mallet style with add'l toe weighting works for me.

 

My cost was just $117 which included express shipping.

 

Thanks to Edwin Watts for calling and getting the putter that I wanted at an acceptable price!

 

Now, if I can just win with it........

That is sad......because they always had a good product.....reminds me of the video game company in the early 90's TurboDuo was the best game system on the planet. Their graphics and sound was far superior to anything else at the time.....but they had no marketing...and fell doomed to others.

 

I guess the same will happen to Slotline again.......you may have a wonderful product, but if you can't get it to market so the people buy it, then you are doomed.

 

Oh well, at least I got an SSi-693 while i could......I really love the feel of it.

After reading your review Foz and the blog entry about the Slotline putters, I decided to see if I could find a 693 for myself. I picked one up on ebay (arrived monday) for $48 new and free shipping! I couldn't pass it up at that price. I've wanted to try a putter with that head shape for a while now, and I figured at less than fifty bucks I couldn't be going wrong. I rolled a few on Tuesday and wasn't blown away by the feel of the club, but it wasn't horrible either. It will definitely take a little time to get used to the heavier weight, but other than that it was comfortable to use. I kind of went back and forth with the alignment aid finally deciding that I really wasn't comfortable focusing on getting the line to stay in the notch. All in all, I'm glad you started this thread because I wouldn't have known about Slotline had you not.

Thanks for the input Spy Analyst,

 

The sight aide will really help once you get used to it. It does feel a bit awkward at times, but it makes sure that your head is in the correct position.
