Just got a Tyne. Feels great to me. I tried it with ProV1x and it feels perfect. I also tried with Bridgestone XS and it took a while to get used to the softness but it feels great to mes as well. I generally play a softer ball and was initially worried at how soft the Bridgestone felt but got used to it pretty quickly. I absolutely hated how the firmer Prov1x’s felt on my firmer feeling Ketsch, but would consider playing a firmer ball this year with this Tyne if a firmer ball is a better fit for me. Guess I’ll have to do a ball fitting now. Playing it adjusted down to 32 3/4” and didn’t notice anything weird with the shaft.

It’s kinda funny they come out with the Fetch the same year you can leave the pin in.

Just picked up a Tyne 4 on a impulse buy. Personally I love the feel of the soft shaft. Reminds me of my old Bullseye pro feel from a thousand years ago.

Actually, that's the best part. If you think about it, you still had to bend over to pick up the flag left murdered on the green. No longer; simply put the ball in, walk up, lift flag, snag ball, replace flag, and save the spine. Perfect!

 

14 Pings. Blueprints are incredibly good. Fetch is the most underrated putter on the market. Don't @ me.

> I agree. I am also playing my Tyne at 34" and the putter does not feel flimsy at that length. My only concern about the Tyne is that it still feels a bit head-heavy, even at a shorter length. I may try to find a heavier grip to better counterbalance the head. With the adjustable shaft, there is no way to add weight within the shaft at the grip end.

 

I think the black Tyne is less heavy in the head...

The head of the black Tyne is 5 grams lighter than the Tyne 4. I play the lighter Tyne, but it still feels a bit heavy to me.

 

To compensate, I just re-gripped my Tyne with a 98 gram SuperStroke Traxion Tour XL 3.0. This makes the total club weight heavier, but the balance of the club is more to my liking. It still has a pretty high swing weight (E-1), so the head doesn't feel overly light. This grip is actually 3" longer than the standard grip so it overhangs the sliding tube on the Ping adjustable shaft. I installed the grip to overhang the tube by 1.5" on each end. The firmness of the grip core allows this to work well without the grip feeling at all floppy. It looks very clean as long as you like the look of a longer grip on this club. The grip has a "Tech-Port" on the end that gives me about an inch of open space (between the cover on the port and the adjustment screw on the shaft) so that I can add additional weight if I want to add additional counterweighting. I can still adjust the shaft length by removing the Tech-Port cap and then using a longer wrench to make adjustments. The extra length of the grip means my Tyne now adjusts from 33.5" to 37.5" (instead of the standard 32" to 36"); I'm currently playing the putter at 34" long.
