Getting very interested to try a SIK Putter. The idea behind their Descending Loft Tech (DLT) seems very cool. Knowing that I don't always return the same exact amount of loft to the ball at impact, having some tech to provide some more consistency to the speed/role quality could be a game changer. Anyone have experience with it?

I tried the flo as part of this years most wanted mallet testing.  i was impressed and it is a putter I want to go try again.   Feel is more on the harsh than soft side if that makes any difference.   As for the roll,  it seemed to work for me,  but I feel like I am pretty consistent in delivering the putter .

Thanks for the reply @cnosil. I was just looking to see if anyone could confirm if there was any legitimacy behind the technology.

is it legitimate or not is a different question 🙂    It makes sense in theory but you would need something like a quintic system to analyze the launch conditions.  They are expensive putters to just try out.

I’ve had a couple of them. They are nice putters in general, but the main tech they advertise (dlt) doesn’t really work.

The tech is predicated on having the exact same return height on the putter... it works if you do that and ONLY vary your shaft lean, but in my experience many more variables change along with shaft lean, so whatever benefit it supposedly gives is negated. Hit the putt “thin” (towards the bottom of the face) and there’s no loft at all.

You’re better off with a putter you can first line up really well, and then maybe some tech like Evnroll or the Taylormade insert. At least Sik uses horizontal grooves, which are better imo than other patterns.

I have been wanting to get one of these for almost 10 years. First introduced to them when a competitor in College had one and it looked so good. He was kind enough to let me roll some putts with it after the round. Solid fell but the DLT wasn't noticeable tech but I do remember liking how the tech didn't take over the look of the putter.

Great idea. For me i really can't tell how a putter rolls . I can see the technical stuff how its suppose to roll but i have never used one and i have had lots  that i would say man that rolls well. Just me

I played one for a little while. I got a really good deal on it and It was nice, I thought it had a good feel and performed well. It was their anser style blade. Ultimately I simply moved away because I wanted something more face balance. I know they have options for face balanced putters. I just didn't have the cash at the time. 

I think they make really good putters.

SIK makes great putters. Learned about them from API (Arnold Palmer Invitational) and the putters looked beautiful. Had a quick session with them when I lived in Orlando & they use Quintic. Very knowledgable gents about putting, they noticed how my shoulders being open at address  was affecting the delivery to the putter on Quintic. Looking at flying back home & putting one in the bag!

I got fitted for one yesterday, I had a consistent roll with it and the feel of the putter is great, I cannot tell the effect of the DLT but it is the best putter i have ever tried.
