If you guys haven't had a chance to try these they are something else. They have a device that is basically a cage that holds the putter from the top via a hook which would allow it to spin on its own shaft axis, and a channel that supports the shaft. You hold the sides of the cage and putt with it, and the putter will not turn. It stays stable. You can hook up any other putter make and model in the same device and see the difference. My local fitter has had these for the better part of a year and they are really cool. Custom fit orders only, you won't see them on a rack.

 

Don't knock it till you try it. They retail for about 350

I received mine 2 weeks ago but because of the weather could only play one round with it and it is very promising.

I have for 3 years the Odyssey Back Strike in my bag and no other putter I bought could kick it out.

I bought and sold Yar putter, Seemore, Ping Ketch,Axis-1,Q-roll etc.

I was looking for a little flatter Lie angle then my Back Strike putter.What I like about the Back Strike and the Directed Putter is on pressure puts (my weakest point)

I really can relax my hands and let the putter drop and it will goes straight where I aimed.

My first impression is the Directed Putter does it better then the Back Strike it feels more balanced true the stroke.

Like the bigger head and don't mind the look, I focus on the ball.I think it is easier to line up the Back Strike with the arrow DART on top.

The only thing I had to get used to was the grip on the Directed putter as I was used to a bigger round Super Stroke.

The grip is oval and smaller and my hands tried to rotated the club a little but after a few practice puts is was gone.

They have a bigger 3.5 grip I'm gonna test but because of the weight they did not recommend it some people has issues with distance control because of the swing weight change.I have to say the distance control and roll of the ball is perfect.

I like the forward press built into the grip,

 

That's the funny thing. I had heard about the grip and finally tried it the PGA show this year only to find they install the grip in the opposite direction of what I would have assumed. So instead of promoting a flat lead wrist it actually forces you to bend the wrist. Make the stroke feel that much more handsy. Putter would be better off with a normal pistol grip or a SuperStroke 2.0.

These putters are especially good for folks who have very upright or very flat lie angle needs. I work in a golf shop and we sell these putters. Fit 2 people to 79* and another to 78* and i myself am a 66* lie angle. The designer (Bill Presse) reweights the heads based on what lie angle they drill the head to. So the putters are actually heavier the more upright lie angle you need and lighter the flatter you go. Most OEM's can bend their putters 2-4 degrees from their standard lie angles. Not like i can order an Odyssey or Scotty at a 66* lie angle.

I assume they do custom lengths too?
