The Clearview Putter....seriously?!?


Recommended Posts

So I get home tonight and I am kicking back in the recliner and firing up the laptop to see what is going on in the forum so I thought I would flip on the TV and I'm watching the Golf Channel and all of a sudden a commercial for the Clearview Putter comes on. Has anyone seen this ad? It is a see-though putter, here's a pic....

Jack Hamm probably uses one. I think that the weights are Zolex.

hahahahahahaha

My wife gives me huge amounts of grief for being so deliberate when it comes to researching even medium sized purchases. I spent a couple of hours researching the last coffee maker we bought.   An

I always wonder how much money these people make off of stuff like that.

I'd have to put the Odyssey in the bending machine first.

 

I'd say a Yes! putter would work for me.

I just wonder who out there was thinking "hey, lets make a see through putter" and then I want to know who was there next to them and said "Yeah....that sounds awesome". I am pretty sure that is how this putter came about.

Ah yes, an alignment aid on a clear piece of plastic will definitely be more effective than an alignment aid on a piece of metal. Why didn't I realize this before?

But with the plastic, the alignment aid is on the bottom, near the grass, and the ball rolls on the grass.

No metal putter can have the alignment on the bottom.

As soon as it comes in a long model. Fantastic alignment, 48" shaft. The putts will fly into the hole out of fear before the headcover is even removed.

I hope the headcover is titanium lined with mink. No scratches or nicks to block the view.

 

I will probably just leave it at home to be sure that it doesn't get scratched.

A first edition could put both kids through colleg down the road.

My favorite part of the videos on their site is the fact that they say it does three things and they are...

 

1. It lines you up

2. It sets you up

3. It tells you when you screw up (my personal favorite)

 

I just can't believe that the Golf Channel actually showed it on air, but I guess if they are cranking out the money for advertising then why not.

And all of this time I just guessed at that when I missed the hole.

I know that is what I was thinking. The other thing that strikes me odd is the motto on their site is "Aim small...Miss small"....WTF???? Who actually thought about selling a club telling you to miss small????? It's almost like they are saying you'll still miss, but just not as bad.

I am ok with planning to miss and play poorly, hence my motto: Sactown says, "Play less Sh**ty"
