I'm getting an Edel fitting this Saturday. Just wondering, how does it differ compared to a Sam Putt Lab fitting?

The Edel method uses a combination of head shape, alignment aids, neck shapes to ensure you can aim the putter correctly. After you have established this, they will use a combination of head weight and optivibe weights to ensure you can control the speed.

The SAM putt lab simply measures what you are doing with the putter as you hit a series of 7 putts.

I was fit for an Edel putter at Club Champion back in February. I recently went back and got on the SAM machine and we made some adjustments based on those results. Ideally, you would do an Edel fitting and then confirm/tweak those results on a SAM machine.

Thanks for the explanation. Does the Edel fitting recommend a loft and lie angle as well?

Yeah, loft, lie, length, weight, counterweight, headshape, alignment lines, hosel config.  

I recommend you check you can find the sweet spot when putting, I found that with all the weight in the heel the sweet spot felt about 1/2" towards the heel, really spoils the feel!  So during the fitting try hitting a few toe and heel side of the alignment Mark to check where the sweet spot actually is...

That's great to know, thanks.
