KS1 Putter is in hand and ready for the course.

Recommended Posts

The putter and the weight set came in today! The putter is a little long, but feel stable and poppy. I wouldn’t call it soft, but I would call it crisp. It has the look of a squareback with a matte finish. 

I will hopefully roll some outside today, but I have already rolled a bunch on the putting mat. I am a mallet spider guy for 5 seasons, but I played a Newport midslant while college golfing so I am excited to get back to it. I do love the spider X though. 

What would you guys like to know or have me communicate to you. At first look and whack... 180 for milled putter with weights, rifled shaft (don’t know the brand) and a super stroke seems legit so far.

Mine is set to arrive within the next hour or two.  Very jealous you were able to get a weight kit.

Hows the sound? Clicky or muted? Maybe both?

Best of luck with it.  What do you think the closest comparison would be to anything else out in your opinion?  

Does the putter feel well balanced? 

Probably will take some getting used to but hope it works out well for you.  As a Lefty, this is just one of many things that I will never be able to try out.

Nice work scoring a weight kit @alexhofeldt - that first batch sold out quick!

I’d be curious to hear your thoughts about the “fit & finish” of Costco’s first foray into the milled putter market.

Things like: grip alignment, finishing buff/polish (particularly the matte areas), face milling precision, actual length, magnetic/velcro headcover, etc.

Edit: we also love macro pics of new equipment releases around here, so I would encourage you to snap away and share.

Other than the extreme packaging I guess it looks ok to me. I'm not a plumbers neck guy but the head looks ok.

Best of luck with it.

Does the superstroke seem like a true superstroke, I'm wondering where Cosco is finding the savings because I doubt they actually manufacture these?

It is for sure a legit SuperStroke. 

I’ll take more pics for sure for you all. I am hitting it right now right next to my Pro Platnium Scottie and a Taylormade Spider X. The sound is the same as the Cameron and the feel is very similar to a pro platnium. 

First thoughts are that this putter is legit and I am stoked that I randomly woke up early and check Costco.com ha ha.

Played 18 with mine today. This putter is nice, has a medium feel, rolls the ball nicely, I rolled in a few 15-20 footers and a couple short breakers which held the line well. 
I think this is a good putter and if it was a “name” putter, it would in be $299-350 range. Ultimately I will be returning it tho because I’m flush with putters I like and I don’t feel like putting the time to dial in the putter to my specs. But if you have the time and the weight kit, I would definitely check this putter out. 
Ps. My putter was built with no defects that you hear of, the grip was aligned square.

Has anyone seen these in store yet? I'm wondering if they'll have a model available to mess with before just buying one. Seems odd to buy a club in a box with no way to see if it looks and feels like you'd want it to.

Edit: I'm sure they don't have any out right now due to germ spreading but I wonder if they will in the future.

I bought mine in store, it was in a box, no demos

Here are some more pics boys. I think it is clean and I am really excited to put it in play. I have been out of the putter game for a while since I have used an OG itsybitsy TM putter for years, but I dig it. 

The head cover is a little tight and seems like it could fit better, but maybe it will stretch.

I received mine yesterday.  I got one with a crooked grip.  Regardless, I rolled some putts with it.  I like it.  I'll be keeping it.

Agree 100%. With a putter it's all about feel and alignment. So much variability from player to player. I can't see myself buy a golf club in a box without even being able to touch it let alone roll a few putts with it.

I used mine for the first time on Saturday.  It's not likely going to beat out my gamer, but I never thought it would.  I feel like I struggled getting balls to the hole, like I couldn't hit them hard enough.  That may have something to do with it being an insert putter as opposed to solid.  I'm planning on bagging it on Tuesday for league play to give it another go.

Cosmetically, the shiny cavity graphic/ medallion would reflect in the sun and I saw "Kirkland" on the flange, which didn't bother me but would bother others.  Also, the weights got grass stained during my round, and I'm not really sure how.  It doesn't effect performance in any way, but I found it weird.  As previously stated, the headcover isn't a great fit.  

Overall, it's a solid putter, and if I wanted to dedicate some serious time I could see gaming, but I'll be sticking with my Cameron and will keep this one around for kicks.  I'd like to get my hands on a weight kit and play around with different combinations to see if that will change the feel.

Not a big deal since Costco will take a return no questions asked.
