DH89 w/slot it the one that I am looking forward to, and the 8802. Not that I can putt with one, but I'll give it a go i it is one of his.

I don't know if I can putt with an 8802 either, but I love the look so much that I must have one.

I would definitely drop $20 to demo it, similar to the way that Byron does it. I would definitely not spend $300+ on a curiosity, but if I read a whole bunch of positive stuff, got to try it, then I might take the plunge.

 

He lets you demo a putter for $20? That's a great idea.

Yes it is. They set up around 5 putters for the year as demo putters and they need to get 10-15 people signed up for each one. Each person pays a set amount and agrees to ship it to the next person within a week or getting it. After it's gone around, they have a raffle and the winner can buy the putter, after it's been refinished, for around half price.

Wow, that's fantastic. So you get a refinished putter for half price plus $20 if you win the raffle. Good deal.

Yes, you get a refinished putter for half price and $20, just like I said. It's a very good deal.

To me half the battle with all clubs are they have to look good as well as perform.These things are just plain UGLY. Also if you mechanics are not proper no putter is going to improve your stroke. JMO

It is certainly easier to have confidence in a club that looks good, and these things are definitely...alternatively attractive.

 

However, I'm not sure that proper mechanics matter when you have 3D head geometry. :o

Yes, I've been in 2 test groups. The first one I didn't enter the raffle because I ended up buying a custom. The second one has not been raffled yet, but I'm hoping to win.

Not really down with the Torpedo putter. I let out an audible gasp when I brought up the website. My wife asked me what was wrong. I told her I saw something scary.

You don't have to own one to demo one. Just get on the test panel

I'll PM you when sign-ups start...

I like that it's a "when" not an "if." If you want to demo a Byron or 7 sometime, just give me a call or a PM.

 

Thanks. I'm hoping we will get the chance to grace the same practice green at some point this season Matt (and some tee boxes too).

Definitely. I offered to let PingMan demo my Byron's too, so maybe I'll just put together a Chicago Byron Demo Day & Golf Outing.
