  1. Thank you for saving my score in the worst season of ball striking in a loooong time. I ended my year on a 10.1 (started at 14.7), while I couldnt hit a ball straight to save my life
  2. Great comparison, thank you! I‘ll Stick with my DF for the Time being
  3. @labgolf can we get a comparison pic of B.2, DF 2.1 and Mezz.1? I'd love to see how much smaller those two are compared to mine
  4. Its super easy with the DF I think the "notch" in the bag of the "horseshoe" is intended for that purpuse and it works just as well as an Anser style putter (which I had before). I'd be super disappointed if it didn't. Nothing better than to leave yourself a gimme fom 20+ ft and scoop it up. If I suck, I better look good while doing it
  5. Its only a matter of getting used to it. Lag putting has always been the best part of my putting. It sucked for a short time when I had to get used to how far the ball goes, but now its better than ever. I hardly ever have more than 3 feet left after a lag putt. if you get used to how far you have to take it back for a certain speed, this thing is automatic: 1. Direction is handled by the absence of torque (every. single. putt. starts. on. line). 2. The thing is so forgiving, it gets the ball to the hole even if you severely miss it
  6. Its not an update or upgrade. Its a driver to compliment ST-Z to cater for different golfers. Only reason to "upgrade" is, if you wish your ST-Z tp spin less or have some adjustability
  7. I can 100% second these findings, except for the fact that I struggled with shorter putts pre-L.A.B. but was good on long putts. The DF 2.1 did cure my almost-Yips (inside 5ft), kept my lag putting great (after some time of getting used to the putter, and midrange putts from 8-15ft do drop WAY more often than they used to. Three putts only happen when I really misread one. If I read the putt correctly, the second one is usually a tap in. No matter how far it was
  8. I know it sounds weird, but I prefer the DF shape. I kinda love the uniqueness and how it stands out
  9. Its a really great shape! I will have to try it, but will quite likely settle at something a little more forgiving
  10. The DF 2.1 from @labgolf shaved around 5 strokes off my handicap this season. To be honest, it's probably more than that, as my ballstriking went down south in the mean time. Truth be told, I am not sure how much is the putter and how much is the fit, as I have used my previous putter for 12 years and never got fit for it. I am a big believer in the technology though and think it plays a BIG role. I also see a big difference in wedge shafts, I particularly do not like the KBS High Rev for full shots but love it around the greens
  11. Makes sense to have a little wider sole through 7i, I think. They do need some space for that trough-slot they mill from the sole up and then cover
  12. Nah, higher spin usually means lower lauch. Worn grooves launch higher and spin less, fresh grooves launch lower and spin more. edit: just realized you maybe intended to write "ball" instead of "wedge" in which case you should be right
  13. Lol, as if the Hulk shaft needed some extra RDX stoutness. That shaft must be an absolute beast!
  14. This is right up my alley in terms of looks. This vs 7 wood (TSi2) will quite likely have a little battle for the region above my longest iron
  15. Thats the raw one in the video The Satin Chrome is very "chromey" and shiney on the back. And yes, the raw one looks really great
  16. I am also really intrigued by an Armlock 2.1, even though I never really liked armlocking when I tried it. And I honestly doubt that it would improve my putting at all at the state where it is right niw
  17. I always had a long, smooth stroke, so I never really "hit" a putt, except for really long ones accross a large green - those I still do it with the DF 2.1 or I would not make it to the hole. It was more that I actively stroked the putter with my old blade, so the hole stroke, the speed, the angle of attack and the squareness of the face was controlled by me. The DF 2.1 only needs "guidance", if that makes sense. So I swing it back and only have enough tension in arms and grip so that it swings through the ball on the intended plane. I literally take it back and have only one thing in mind "make it hit the ball on the way up". Really hard to explain, as putting is all feel for me. I hope this makes any sense, if not then I'll try again edit: My trouble with lag putting was distance control, not leaving it short all the time. That was (probably) due to me trying to only swing it back long enough and then let it "fall through the ball" which led to poor contact and everything from 20% short (too short off a swing, too loose a grip) or ripping it off the back of the green (leave some short and then try to compensate for it and "hit". Not gonna lie, it took a good 15-20 rounds and 10-15 long putting sessions to figure out what the problem was. But man, am I confident on long putts now. Instead of being anxious that I might 3 putts, I think about holing everything
  18. Short update: As my index went from 14.7 to around a 10 since I bought the putter it is safe to say, it is working for me. I actually hit the ball as bad as I have in a long time (mainly irons) and still score lower. Shotscope has me at 3.7 strokes gained vs. a 10 handicap for the 35 rounds I played with the DF 2.1. My best round was a round with 6.5 strokes gained (making 3 birdies from outside of 15 feet certainly helps), the worst was losing -0.3 (which was before figuring out lag putting). I don't have data with another putter, but I can guarantee, I have never putted better than right now and at my club people know me as the "guy with the funky blue putter".
  19. U510 is as big and forgiving as it gets. Offset is not minimal but less than the Crossover for sure
  20. Mizuno offers pretty much every grip on the market - without an upcharge
