Intriguing. I don’t align my ball often because I feel it’s distracting trying to get the line just right then the face to match... maybe that’s why I’m not scratch 😂 I’ll be following the data on this one closely. I hope some testers are those who do alight it, and some who don’t.

I have experimented with a line but I don't align it and also find it distracting, but I know some great putters who line.

I think my biggest issue is trusting the line to match up with the stroke so I don't push or pull it once I get over the ball. Second biggest issue is the time it takes to line it up and then possibly realign if it looks off.

I'd rather go with my gut and hit it fast. But then again, I also don't play for the big bucks

I ordered 3 dozen Align XL on Srixon Z Star.  I F’ing love them.  Got them quickly and have felt much more confident putting with them.  I practice with them also.  It does take a bit more time aligning even on my Wellputt practice mat but it can help.  As for using in play, sometimes you think you aligned properly from standing behind the ball. Then when you address the ball the line looks way off.  So, take your time and align from behind then take a practice adddress stance and make sure it all looks right.  Combine the line with a marker that has a point like a triangle or aimed at the line. It can instill confidence in target acquisition. Then you just worry about speed.  I reccomend Align XL

I go back and forth on this. I often do not use the alignment on my back and actually specifically put the brand stamp perpendicular to my aprox line and leave it up to feel for actual aim. But then when I start to putt poorly and am inside 10 ft I will start using the line again just to make sure those missed putts are stroke and not original aim. Interested to see what people think of having a more prominent lone on the ball than what comes standard.

Interesting to see if whoever's selected thinks this is better than the good ol' sharpie and PVC fitting. It's always been tough for me to justify paying extra for this kind of thing. Might be nice addition to a gift for somebody, but I probably wont add it to my every day rocks.

Interesting.  Great of golfballs.com to do this.  I've went back and forth on the alignment and still not sure what the right thing to do would be.  Need to get my putting stroke ironed out a bit more as the dreaded yips have reared there head now and then.  Hope I can get it under control.

Best of luck to all that apply.

I went back and forth with a thick sharpie line on my ball all of last season, and found it helpful on shorter/straighter putts but also very distracting when it comes to longer putts or sliding putts.

I'll be interested to see the results from the Testers! Good Luck and if the data is good enough, i'll get over my dumb brain and start doing the line again.
