Would you pay $2,500 for a customized putter with ground breaking technology?

LA Golf has a new putter claiming to be ground breaking. However, the cost is also  just as ground breaking. Not sure I would go there, would you?

Wait. You can COLOR the individual pieces???? GROUND BREAKING TECHNOLOGY!!!!!

  I'm not sure I understand how they can justify the cost - I know they will TRY to justify it (something something DeChambeau something), but still...wow.

 I had the opportunity to roll one and it does roll the ball well.   The best description I heard was that it looks like trex decking material and as a result it doesn't look very polished.  

 

Would I buy one;  No.

Since you actually had hands on one, does it come off the face faster and more stable? That’s what they claim with the inverted groove face design.

Only hit about 10 putts with it;  should get some additional testing next week.   I had good distance control but I can't say it is any better than any other putter in the market.  People use the term "stable" to describe the new graphite shafts and since it has an LA Golf shaft people would probably say it is stable.   I personally don't understand how that term applies; what do you mean by stable?  Any putter that fits your stroke would be stable.

I'd have to say no, I would not spend $2500 for a whole set of clubs let alone a putter.   I can't imagine my putting stroke being able to truly take advantage of the stated breakthroughs. 

Plus, I'd be distracted by constantly worrying every time I played that someone would stealing it from my bag!

I was only quoting what they said on the golf channel as far as stable. I agree with your assessment. I think it is a gimmick to justify using different materials and then calling it ground breaking. I believe hood putters can putt with anything. Heck Lee Trevino hustled people using a coke bottle as the putter head.

Nope. Not even for a tour issue Scotty. 😉
 

ok… maybe for THE Scotty. But if that ever was up for auction it would sell for way over my max bid.

I can't wait until Dustin makes it his Gamer and he wins 4-5 LIV tourneys and a major in 2023, and the golf world starts saying $2,500 seems like a steal for this putter!  😂

So, out of pure curiosity I sent an email to them and asked if they gave any military discount. They offered a 25 percent discount. Still not biting! Then I asked the price if I did not want to change the color and only wanted the standard putter with a length and lie adjustment. They told me they could do that for $1500. Still a no, but heck I already have them down a grand, ha ha.
