Wilson Staff Infinite Line - Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Posted (edited)

So I just finished reading the "Best Blade Putters for 2020" that was just published by MyGolfSpy, and was just wondering about your guys thoughts on the Wilson Staff Infinite line that was involved in the testing (the West Loop and Windy City models). I currently game an Odyssey White Hot 2-Ball and was considering trying out a blade putter instead (also my birthday is in two days so I figured it could be an early gift to myself 🤑). If anyone currently games one or has tested them in the past, I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback. Thanks in advance.

Honestly I love the line. For a putter that is priced where it is, they have good feel and are just solid overall. Nice grip and visuals overall too.

A good variety of shapes and options that make them best bang for your buck I would say.

Nothing wrong with the line;  they all feel pretty good and roll the ball well.   Wilson has a tendency to put a lot of sight lines on their putters so if don't like that they may not be for you.   I also hated the stock grip;  too much taper and too big in the top hand.

That's good to hear, my thoughts were aligned similarly. The price line is really hard to beat so I wondered if quality was not completely there. Good to hear your thoughts, thanks.

I checked it out as well, only comes in 34” and 35”......and it has a counterbalance in the grip.

As for me, I am a 33” putter guy........

I bought an Infinite The Bean putter over spring, but haven't got it out on the course yet.  I really like it based off indoor putting.  The truth will be found when I get on the course.

They feel hard with the tp5 pix balls that golftown had down on the putting greens compared to most other milled face putters. A lot of that could be adjusted through ball I imagine. Check out last years most wanted results. Same putters didn’t do nearly as well in 2019.

I've got an Infinite South Side from a few years ago, very nice weighting and feel. Stock grip was no good, so I swapped it out with a Winn Pistol.

MGS testing is guilty of exposing great gear that otherwise would go under the radar. For $99 you can’t go wrong when the results speak for themselves.

It is a decent putter. People that have purchased seem to like. I prefer the higher end milled putters that TA our out this year. During most wanted testing
It performed well for me. Not the best and not the worst.

I gamed the Windy City for 2 seasons before I was able to snag a TA3. I gamed the TA3 for the second half of last season and really appreciated it inside of 15'. I felt the roll was true when you hit it properly. The TA3 is best for a straight back-straight through putting stroke and probably why I do well with it inside of 15' but not so great with lag putting.

Right now I am practicing with them both on my 11' roll out mat in the basement and am seeing improvements with the Windy City. I think that the ball comes off the face of the Windy City a little more hot compared to the TA3, but I don't have any hard data to back up that observation.

I like that the Windy City comes with a slightly oversized grip as the standard grip. On days where I feel my hands are getting in the way, I use the Windy City and help get my hands quiet so I can focus on just rocking my shoulders.

If you want any more info, I'm rolling lots of putts in my basement right now so I can try a bunch of different stuff (within 11') for you and let you know the results.

The Infinite line is interesting for me.  They look to be an amazing value, especially for a milled putter.  Ive never used an Infinite but I have played the Harmonized putters in the past.  The Harmonized is a whole different ball game though and is much more of a, "cheap" putter than these seem to be.

I have not had much experience with oversized grips and I currently game a standard grip. It would be interesting to see how the feel is with the oversized grip on the Wilson Staff putters. If you could vary putts within that range and note any differences in the two that would be great. I would like to know how your confidence in different lengths of putts vary from putter to putter if it varies at all. Thanks.

Will do. I can have some rough data and thoughts for you by the end of the week.

@AGutierrez7: You asked, and here are my incredibly non-scientific results of my testing of the TA3 against the Wilson Infinite Windy City.

There are extreme differences between each putter that could make you lean one way or the other just based on preferences:
 

Putter: TA3 Windy City
Shape: Mallet Blade
Length: 34" 35"
Balancing: N.A Counter Balance
Grip Size: Regular Oversize
Aim Lines: 1 3

 

As I mentioned earlier, the ball seems to come off the face of the Windy City more "hot." That could be perception and not reality and perhaps influenced by the way the putter has more weight in the grip to create the Counter Balance.

My mini experiment was hitting 25 putts with each putter from both 5' and 10' on my roll out mat in the basement for a total of 75 putts from each distance with each putter. I would hit sets of 5 putts from the two distances rotating putters and distance. I would also hit the sets of 5 at varying times throughout the day to try and make the experiment a little more random.

Putter TA3 Windy City
Tuesday 5' 20/25 - 80% 18/25 - 72%
Tuesday 10' 5/25 - 20% 7/25 - 28%
     
Wednesday 5' 21/25 - 84% 20/25 - 80%
Wednesday 10' 11/25 - 44% 12/25 - 48%
     
Thursday 5' 21/25 - 84% 19/25 - 76%
Thursday 10' 12/25 - 48% 10/25 - 40%
     
Total 5' 62/75 - 82.6%  57/75 - 76%
Total 10' 28/75 - 37.3%  29/75 - 38.6%
     
Total  90/150 - 60% 86/150 - 57.3%


During this short experiment the TA3 was better by five putts at the 5' distance and the Windy City was better by one putt at the 10' distance.

For some context, here are my putting stats from Arccos to help you see what kind of a putter I was last season with the TA3 for the majority of the year:

 

 

Putting 2'.PNG

Putting 2-10'.PNG

Putting 10-20'.PNG

Putting 20-30'.PNG

If any of the stats are confusing, let me know. I can try to clarify.

I did learn that on most of my misses with both putters, I turn the putter face to the left at contact rather keeping the face square through contact so now I have something to focus on in my practice.

If I do golf this season, I will game the TA3. The data points to it being better, as well as the comfort level I have developed with it in my hands. I don't have anything bad to say about the Windy City. I think it is a good putter, and would be happy to have that as my gamer if need be. 

I hope this little review helps you. If you want any other information, let me know.

First off, that's is some fantastic data and I really appreciate you taking the time to put this together. From your stats it looks like you have a really solid putting game (66% from 10' to 20' WOW). It was interesting to see how well the Windy City was able to keep up with your TA3, considering you played the majority of last season with the TA3. I'm also curious what kind of putting stroke you have as that may explain part of the results. Also with the putter length differences, could you feel any sort of variance (feel, etc) between the two? Again, I really appreciate you taking your time to do this. Great little experiment that was extremely helpful for me.

You're welcome. I'm happy to hear this was helpful for you. 

I'm not surprised that the "battle" was close between the two putters. I used the Windy City all of 2018 and a little bit of the start of 2019.

Data is weird sometimes. I would not describe myself as a "good" putter.  I would describe myself as a consistent two putter. The data was a little surprising to see that high of a make % from 10-20'.

My putting stroke, I try to have a straight back-straight through type of style. I try to rock my shoulders to make this happen and keep my hands and wrists along for the ride. My miss comes from either turning the face open at contact most of the time, or having the path come more inside. In this experiment, I would say 75% of my misses were left of the cup due to the open face and 25% were yanked right with the club face coming across my intended path to the inside.

The difference in height didn't really impact what I felt compared to the weight distribution with the counter balance weight that is in the grip of the Windy City. The feel of more of weight that high up the club compared to the TA3 plus the over sized grip made more of a difference to me in feel than the height. I grip the Windy City a little bit lower than on the TA3 so that could also eliminate any difference in feel with the height.

The only thing preventing me from considering the Infinite line is the over-use of site lines. I like one.

I’m sure some black paint could take care of that concern if you’re into modifying your gear. I know a few threads on here show pictures of people modifying site lines to suit their needs.
