The 7 is face balanced

 

Your Odyssey #7 is face balanced

 

Thanks guys .   The fitter asked me what I was gaming now and I told him the #7.  He said he was a certified Odyssey fitter so I'm wondering if he got the face balance thought after he asked me how I was rolling the #7 or could he tell by my back & through stroke?

I was chosen for the Bettinardi Queen B 9 testing and went to get fit yesterday.   The guy who was watching my stroke said I would be better suited for a face balanced putter. I thought this odd because I never feel like I have a straight back & straight through type stroke.  In fact I rolled the B9 exceptionally well on the carpet so I'm a bit confused about the two options.  My current gamer is an Odyssey works #7 putter which I have no clue whether it's a toe hang or face balanced type. I have been putting well since picking the #7 up. It will definitely be an interesting test for me to review a toe hang style putter.   Looking forward to the challenge!

#7 putters are a face balanced model

I think the concept of SBST is a misnomer and not possible without manipulation because we stand to the side of the target line with a putter that has a shaft that isn't vertical.    The amount of toe hang is really more about rotation of the putter that is necessary to get the putter back to the right position at impact.  

Looking forward to your review of the putter.

Balance the shaft on your finger if the face stays straight (perpendicular to the floor) it is face balanced, if the toe hangs to the floor it is toe hang.

 

With facebalanced putters the actual putter wants to stay straight when used, you dont have to manipulate it, it doesn't want to arc or it doesn't need to arc. With a toe hang putter the putter itself want to arc, therefore, it needs to arc in order to use it properly. The fitting guy was probably looking at the stroke you made, and saw that you probably had no arc in your stroke, therefore recommended a SBST type putter. These are my thoughts on these types of putters anyway.
