    I like the looks of this little thing.



    Easily gets your eyes over the ball, instant visual feedback, it's cheap and it takes up no room in the bag. The only downside I can see to this is that you have to bend over and set it up perfectly before hitting a putt... My lower back probably wouldn't like that very much.



    That said... For less than $20, I'll probably pick one up and give it a try.

    I like the idea of this. I've read a few people who were concerned with constantly lining up the putt concerns. I dont think it matters where you aim. Isn't it to improve you stroke.

    i bought one and here is my thought process on it



    It isnt to practice making putts, its to practice hitting it square and starting it on line without the wobble. When I'm on the course I pick a spot 18 inches down my line and roll my putt over that, if I roll it over that spot I know I hit it where I want. So with the putter wheel I pick a spot 18 inches down my line and try to roll the wheel without wobbling over that spot. Once the wheel takes some break or loses speed it tends to list a bit and is not very conducive to making putts. Unless of course your putt is 2 feet, then its a good training aid to make putts.



    all in all i like it for a training aid, it makes you concentrate on hitting it square in order to hit it on line.

    I got these for Christmas and been indoor putting this winter. I am an awful putter based on these things. They wobble, fall over and some never even make it 6 inches. just so poorly struck they end up like a hockey puck. But when I pure one, it's a great feeling. Been getting better in the last couple weeks, but the uglies jump out every now and then.



    Really looking forward to drawing up my nuggets with the lines. I like the train tracks concept.
