Where is your putter shaft located and why?

It will be part of most wanted testing this year.   Adam announced that on during the MGS raffle.  I tried one a few weeks ago when I was doing an MGS test on the stability shaft.   Personally not a believer in what the revealer test shows but the putter doesn't seem too bad.   Will try and get a better perspective during the actual putter testing and when I am there for other tests.  

 

Hopefully they’ll be doing some types of fittings (which Bill does for free via video) for them as that’s very important with this putter.

Don't know what the expectation is with the putter.  Generally they treat it as if you purchased off the rack, but they have been told by some manufacturers to explain to us how to use the putter.   I think fittings will be difficult since there are about 20 testers.

I’m betting Bill would be willing to do it. He needs a short video clip and can tell you what the lie angle and length needed are from the video. He’d probably send several lie angles and give advice on which one each tester would need to use. Takes him about 45 seconds to do from a video

Obviously not something I control.  When I was there, today, there were multiple directed force putters ready for testing,

Great question.  I'll need to go look at my B61 to know for sure.  I've been playing it for nearly 30 years now and honestly don't know. 🤣

Oh wasn’t implying you controlled anything. I hope he can get a few of his brand new, announced and revealed today blades in the testing too. They officially drop Feb 1 and he’ll have them at the PGA show. I can’t wait to try to get my hands on one of those. It’s about the width of the seemore but packed full of tech. I think even more folks will love it cause it’s traditional sized but has LAB tech (company is no longer directed force, it’s now L.A.B Golf). 

 

I have a feeling their stuff will do well kn testing. Tech filled putters usually tend to do well in the msg testing

spent some time putting with one today.   It rolls the ball well but it takes some time to get used to it.  I play the ball forward,  but with this putter it seems way forward.   The angled grip is a bit interesting too.    I didn't see any of the blade putters in the group of putters,  but maybe they haven't all come in.

He hasn’t sent any blades he said he was trying to get them in. He literally just got them built and ready and previewed them a few hours ago. 

 

And the original does have to be played forward of where one normally plays the ball. The press grip is to get the hands into the correct position. You can put a normal grip on them just bill needs to know so he can build it appropriately. It’s not something one would pick up on eBay and work right immediately, honestly and needs to be fitted right. He’s also got a new v2 press grip he revealed with the blade today as well that’s more round

I saw the pictures of the blade today.  As others have said, reminds me of a SeeMore.  The grip wasn't bad,  but the angle kind of threw me off when I was first setting up.

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.

      Trying to not get overly excited for Jan golf trip and hoping that mother nature doesn't deposit her first snowstorm on us in New England around my departure date.
