  1. Am I the only one that can honestly watch the OPs videos all day? Great job and amazing final product!
  2. Ok. I just tried a few putts by looking at an 1" in front of the ball. So far that feels good, much better than staring at the ball during the stroke. That does boggle my mind though. Strange sport.
  3. Question that's been bothering me. What does your eye do during the putting stroke, specifically the back stroke? I have to watch the putter go back and through the ball to have any success. I tried to keep my eyes on the ball (like a full swing) but it doesn't work and my swing is not fluid or true. Maybe it's a mental block. I do keep my head still so this is just the eyes rolling back and forth. Thoughts?
  4. I have the orginal fgp and the nashville mfgp. The nashville is not exactly the same as the mini giant, no weights and the head is slightly smaller but same overall weight. I find that, once I got used to the extra weight (compared to the orig), I can control the putter better than the lighter orig fgp.
  5. Hey there. I appreciate your helpful post and your offer for to help. I know you probably didn't read through the entire post but I'm confident I have my issues solved and a lot of the advice here were very good. I took a methodical, one by one approach. My biggest mistake was when I started out in golf I didn't think too much about my feet so I bought the lower end, cheap shoes not thinking I was going to walk most of my rounds. My first step was to find the right shoes but I couldn't and didn't want to buy and return different shoes nor could I try every single option at my local store. I we
  6. Yes, very common and you wouldn't know it until you start walking. I was lucky that I didn't need any doctor's help. Better shoes, better socks and lighter bag all helped. The better shoes have better heel and arch support, which is key.
  7. The Ecco Biom Hybrid 3 GTX does the trick for me. For me, it needed a break in period to fully understand how tight to tie the laces and to get some of the leather to loosen up. After about 2 full rounds, I'm convinced these are the shoes for me. If you didn't read through the thread, I also mentioned I now wear premium socks (both Feetures and Kentwool) to help and I believe they do. I used to wear cheap, thin socks not really meant for anything other than grocery store runs. I have wide feet as well and even though the Ecco's are not technically known as "wide", they work for me.
  8. To be honest, I have not played enough to have a very good assessment of the new putter (just 1.5 rounds so far). I've continued to toy with it on my indoor putting mat though. I can say that it took me a good bit to get used to the difference in weight and I'm now finally feeling pretty good about it. I do believe the added weight provides me with more control. My swing is more measured whereas the older, lighter version was more loose and likely needed some extra tension to keep it under control. I continue to feel positive about it and did I mention how good it looks? I have a 9 hole round
  9. Alrighty, another 18 hole, 7+ mile walk yesterday in the bitter cold and I felt great during the round and, more importantly, the best post round including the following day. Yesterday I went back to the Feeture socks. It looks like Ecco's are the one for me plus a good pair of socks will do it.
  10. 1. City, State? Fairfax, Va 2. Handicap? 20ish? 3. Current driver setup? Cobra F9 hzdrs smoke 6s 4. What KBS TD wood shaft do you want to win? Cat 3 60g 5. Why do you want to win a KBS TD shaft? Tighten my dispersion, more length and always love trying new things. 6. Would you be open and honest about your swing with an expert from KBS? Yes, of course!
