Who's still in the directed Force putter?

After watching the recent TXG vid I am intrigued again. Now that you can get the stability shaft in this thing... with the high moi of that head club ultra low torque shaft, could this be the most forgiving putter overall?

To be honest, I tried the torque balanced Edel putters and did not like them. This seems to be a very similar principal so I'm not sure it's for me.

    It feels nothing like the Edel or an Axis1, which feel like they’re hooding on the back swing. The DF swings very nicely. I did not like the look or the feel, but the balance is great.

    Had the pleasure of doing a fitting with Sam, the CEO of Directed Force today. Was such a valuable experience - he helped me get in the correct positions to allow the putter to work as intended.

    I loved everything about it. He recommended a certain alignment aid that would help with the way my eyes align to the ball and even gave me drills to work on distance control with the putter.

    If you have an opportunity to test this putter (especially with Sam), definitely do it. I'm shocked more people aren't using it as this putter feels like cheating..

    Ordered mine immediately after the fitting and couldn't be more excited to get it. If anyone has any questions about the putter let me know!

    When properly fit they are point and shoot.

    Agree on the Edel comments this feels NOTHING like other so called balanced putters. Nothing.

    They are hideous, but not as hideous at 3 putts....and thats all I care about.

    I am saving up my monies :)

    I'm hoping I'm one of the winners from wrx. I just can't pay that much to buy blind...there's no fitters near me.

    If you are facebook reach out to Bill Presse, he can do a remote fitting with you if you already know your preferred length and lie

    Meh still not sure id buy something without hearing it, feeling it, etc. At least, not for the $400 or whatever they charge brand new.

    Completely understand.

    I will say, they aren't pretty, the sound odd, ect.

    But they make putts, so I dont care lol

    I'm not as caring about looks to be honest, I've used a variety of putters over the years. Sound and feel probably make a lot more difference to me as far as the enjoyment I get from putting. Then again, I'll enjoy draining more putts than a feathery feeling face.

    I'd just need to test one first to see if it was for me. I'd be willing to buy a used one blind at the right lie angle and length at a good price.

    I'd love for them to make a "mini" version of the mallet putter with the same shape but a more normal size. I think that would be ideal. The branding iron size of the current version is just unwieldy. I've run into a few situations where I was up against a fringe and it's just impossible to use from there.

    Must be going on 3 years with my DF putter. I still try different putters at the PGA Superstore near me but nothing comes close to knocking it out of my bag. I keep hearing about how ugly , big, etc. it is but if performs, who cares?? I only wish it came out 20 years ago and it would have saved me a lot of $$$ that I spent on putters every year.
