Not knudson, but I have it on my DF 2.1.  I like it a great deal.  Smaller diameter than the Press II 3°, so my stubby fingers get around it better.  Easy to index.  About 20 g lighter than the Press II, but that's what lead tape is for.  I'm sure it's slightly out of balance (I did the grip removal/install and didn't send it back for rebalancing) but still swings and strikes consistently.  The press isn't as noticeable on this one as the Press II.

 

I guess the fit doesn't need to be "perfect" to still work.  Recommended, especially if you've liked pistol grips before.

The grass looks pretty green for Michigan in February.

 

Great looking puter, BTW! Thirty-two alignment options are wild. They do very well with the custom options.

I am a big fan. Just love the way it sits in the pads of your fingers and has an immediate comfort factor compared to the more oval shape of the Press II 1.5*. The texture is nice as well, should be great in the hot and humid weather.

Hot dang that's nice! My DF2.1 is platinum with the white Accra shaft. The DF3 I ordered is black with a black Accra. These photos have me second guessing my choice......

Awesome to hear. I wasn't a fan of their other grips and down in here in South Texas hot and humid is our specialty!

Going to be 50* today and 55* tomorrow! Got a tee time for this afternoon to roll this bad boy for at least 9 holes!

 

Now figuring out the rest of my WITB for today is agonizing!

Absolutely stunning @knudson81 - thanks so much for sharing.  I love that shaft / head color combination - I was dead set on a Mezz Max before the DF3.0, but I'm virtually certain I'm going to switch to the 3.0 now.  I've always enjoyed the feel & repeatability of the 2.1, but could not get used to the visual.  The 3.0 seems so much smaller and fits my eye better - can't wait to see the reviews start rolling in for this one!!!

 

Btw - how does the Accra feel in relation to the stock shaft option?  And what made you go with the pistol grip (I tend to gravitate towards pistol grips, but was curious how it felt / performed on a LAB putter)?

I have the Accra in my Mezz.1 Max as well and I think it softens the feel of the putter a touch compared to a traditional shaft. But the shaft is still stiff and stable, a feel that I prefer in all of my putters.  The Pistol grip is really growing on my and initially I like the feel over the more oval shape of the Press II that I have on my Mezz.1 Max. It has a familiar feel in your hands like a traditional putter grip and the added texture is a nice touch that should perform in the heat of the summer.

Great feedback - I def concur on the Accra vs stock compare (at least the times I've rolled it in a store).  I too prefer the feel of the stiff shaft in that club.

 

On the grip, I think that would be the best option for me too (whenever I do jump the DF3.0 🤣).

 

Appreciate it!

It looks so good! The size is actually the only thing that really annoys me about my DF 2.1 (can be fickle to put in the bag and take it out).

My bank account might not have a good feeling about this. Only thing I need to know is wether I finally should give brooming a go, once DF3 is available as a broomstick

Callaway Rogue ST Max 10.5° @9.5°

Cobra Radspeed Big Tour @ 15.5°

I see it’s been talked about but wanted to confirm the Accra shaft does make it sound different off the face. I tried the link side by side with the Accra and the normal steel shaft. The Accra definitely had a higher pitch sound too it. I ordered the DF3 with the tpt and we’ll see how it sounds and feels.

It is a really good putter. I had 2 of the guys in my group asking about it and trying it out as well. The greens were shaggy and bumpy, but the DF3 just gets that ball started on your intended line with no effort. Like my Mezz.1 Max the DF3 just swings itself easily and with no need of manipulation from your hands. The ball comes off the face with topspin and even with the ROUGH greens it started out with no hop and very little skid. Feel is soft, I think a touch softer than my Mezz.1 Max, and the sound is very muted.
