2019 Toulon Putters Thread

Recommended Posts

Looks like they will be coming with the odyssey stroke lab shafts as well.

I wish they would do sight dots without having to go through the garage. An azalea with no offset and a sight dot would be perfect

The ATL has always been at the top of my list for a putter that will cause the wife to explode and I find myself sleeping on the couch for a week. And now with the stroke lab shaft available, I better go buy a more comfortable couch!

Guess they dropped the Long Island from the line.  Glad I got mine while I was able to.

Same for the indy?   I know they have it in the EXO line, so maybe that's why.

I just went to the shop today to test the EVNROLL.  I expected to walk away with it.  I loved it but after testing the San Diego I didn't even bother picking up the EVNROLL again.

Interesting, care to explain a little further? Was it the stroke lab shaft? Or did it just feel that good?

The back story is I haven't bought any equipment in 10+ years.  I also don't follow equipment trends and haven't played in 2 years.  I'm not a great player but not horrible either.  I decided to play again.  After a few trips to the range and few rounds on the course I decided it was time to get new stuff.  Went to get fitted for everything last month.

I was mostly a blank slate and let the fitter decide what I was going to purchase based on the monitor data.  The only stipulation was I wanted to try at least 5 different brands of each type of club.  Irons, Drivers, Woods.  I say mostly a blank slate because the only thing I assumed was TM was going to be the driver because everyone I saw, at the range or on the course, was using the M5 or M6.  The assumption was wrong.  I also didn't do a hybrid or putter fitting because I have always loved my old Bettinardi Baby Ben putter and saw no reason to get something new.  I hate hybrids but eventually realized my game isn't worthy of a 3 iron.  So I went back to get a hybrid fitting.  After doing the hybrid fitting I had some time to kill and decided to test this Evenroll putter I've been reading about.  I was skeptical because now I'm not a blank slate.  After the first fitting, I start reading about equipment.  I'm letting buzz about the putter enter my brain.  Nevertheless, I picked one up and tested it against my old Baby Ben.  I didn't see enough difference to justify a purchase.  I tried the Scotty Cameron, which everyone knows about.  However, same thing.  No difference.  I went around to all the different putters that I never heard about and landed on the Toulon about half way through all the choices.  Felt different, putted different.  About choked when I saw the price tag.  Put it down and moved on to try the others.  Everything else was no different than my old putter.  Went back to the Toulon and hit about 20 putts with it and 20 putts with my old putter and decided it was worth the price tag.  I didn't know anything about the shaft weight changes.  I just knew it was better than my old putter by a lot.  The feel was exceptional and the distance control seemed better for some reason.  After deciding to get it the fitter told me about the shaft and the feeling I had in my swing was probably due to the shaft weight being redistributed.  Whatever.  It feels really good and if it makes playing more pleasurable then I was in.  They don't do putter fittings so I was on my own deciding on mallet or blade.  Had enough of the mallet look so I was deciding between the Austin or San Diego.  Austin was a little too small so went with the San Diego.  I expect to play this equipment for the next 5-7 years before I do this all again so in the grand scheme $500 is acceptable for a club that is the most used club in a round.

Since I made these purchases I started looking at sites like MGS.  Maybe a little post purchase confirmation.  I spent a lot of money on new equipment and I guess I would like to make sure what I got is good.  Stupid, I know, but I guess its my human nature.

Hope that answers your question.

the Toulan was better than the Bettinardi? wow.....where did you get fit? I'm a little shocked they didn't do putter fittings...especially since its the most used club in the bag.

A reputable shop in the D.C region. I called around to all the fitters I thought would be of a good standard and none of them said they did a putter fitting on a monitor. Within 45 minutes of the center of D.C there are some highly regarded fitters and none has the ability to do a putter fitting on a monitor except Club Champion. I went in there and wasn't thrilled with the reception I got when I wanted to ask some questions about the fitting. Maybe they were having a bad day that day. The other places said they do putter fittings but not with computer aids. Maybe I just wasn't calling the right ones. GD magazine had them all rated in the top 100 at some point in the last 5 years or so. I was pretty surprised considering almost all of them used Trackman for fittings. I have to say the Trackman fitting I did for all the other clubs was amazing and eye opening. I had no idea how much tech is available for the average person. I've seen the pros using it on TV but I didn't realize the average Joe would get anything out of it too. Pretty neat. As far as the Toulon vs the Bettinardi, my Bettinardi is from the companies infancy. They were making putters for the Ben Hogan company at the time. 2002 I think. So I don't know how it compares to the Bettinardi's of today. I still think putters are a very personal choice and if I did get fitted and the data said get X vs the Toulon I probably still would have gotten the Toulon. In my opinion it was that good. But others in the store weren't as enamored with it as I. I'm old school and believe the putter is just too much of a personal preference vs. tech data results.

I'll revise that post a little. I said I didn't know how my old Bettinardi compared to the new Bettinardi's. That isn't true. I did putt with one in the store. They only had one and I didn't see much of a difference from what I had. I wish I could say what the name of it was but I cannot. I do remember it had blue accents and thought it look pretty cool.

 

So I can't say I was comparing one new putter against another new putter. Maybe indirectly. I would pick up a new one. Hit 5 putts then hit 5 putts with mine. If there was something significant about it I would have put it aside to try some more. The only one of about 15 different ones was the Toulon. I also didn't hit every style of one type. If a certain brand blade was a turn off I didn't try the mallet of the same brand.

 

Not exactly scientific but it works for me.
