I'll be honest, I had never even heard of Edel until last week.  The only putters I have ever owned have been Scotty Cameron's.  But last week, I ran into the PGA Superstore to just browse around and waste some time.  I just ran into the Edel fitting station and putters, randomly grabbed a black E3 off the rack and putted with it for a few minutes and I actually loved it.  The feel of it felt way different than any putter I have ever owned.  I think maybe its the counter balance and heavier grip?  But it just felt very even and not head heavy.  I hate to say this, because everyone putts great in the stores. but I was hitting the thing great and draining everything.

So I left there thinking i want one of these!!! emailed the company and they invited me down to Austin (im only about 3 hours away) to come tour the facility and watch how they are made, get fitted and customize the putter to my liking.

So I am really considering asking Santa for this... but curious to see what others think or have experienced.

I live in Austin.  I did the fitting at their HQ and didn't make any more putts with theirs than mine, but my dad and F-I-L also did the fitting and swear by theirs.

I have putted with an Edel for the last eight years.  Their fitting process is second to none

Love my E-3! They’re great pieces of kit, as are all the other clubs that leave the Edel workshop. The fitting will be an eye opener if you’ve never had a putter one done. David Edel and team’s system for finding the best fit for you is top notch.

I have only heard positive things about their fitting process. They take you through the process and then explain the science/reasoning behind the process. Really informative. Haven't done it personally but a good friend's son has.

I've got an Edel putter.  Went through the full fitting process which was absolutely incredible.

And I can't putt worth a damn with it!!  Have no idea why but on the course I just can't seem to do anything with it, the distance control that was the selling point for me isn't there and I'm much worse at holing out with it than other putters.

I'm going back to see why this is the case but just as a counterpoint to the positive feedback.....  Putting for me is all about feel and I think my problem is that the Edel is so heavy that I don't have any with it

I game an Edel, fitted in their classic line with the Rogue head. (A wide blade with a concave curved flange.) The fitting refuted just about everything I thought about what my specs were. There is no better fitting, whether you buy one or not. Well worth it.

I putt great with it. Fits me perfect for nailing the speed. I love the heavier head, offset by the heavier grip, and I really love that the grip is perfectly round.

I would even buy another one. I am always drawn to half-moon mid-mallets and the biggest Edel head, the Columbia, fits the bill.
Current lineup:

TM M1 440 Tour Issue, 10-degree, Diamana B Series X,
67g.
Nike Flex 3 wood, Diamana S-70 stiff
Callaway Epic 5W, Hzrdus T800 S, 65g.
Callaway Apex hybrid, 20 degree, Kuro Kage 80HY stiff shaft
Mizuno MP-59, 4-P, PX 5.5
(Coming: Srixon z565 4 iron, z965 5-P, C Taper Lite X.)
Ping Glide 50, 54, CFS wedge shafts
Fourteen RM12 58/12 sand wedge
Edel Rogue putter (thick blade), 34 inch.

Just had a very similar experience, was knocking around PGASS trying this and that.  Went through all the high end stuff and nothing really stood out. Even putters I've come very close to buying in the past (Spider Tour Red and EVNROLL ER1) did nothing for me.  Was about to call it a day when I decided to go ahead and try one of the 25 or so (not kidding) Edel's they had sitting out. I started with the E-1 mallet in gold and the first putt I hit was easily my best roll of the day.  Putts 2 through 10 were more of the same.  Next I picked up the E-2 and had a similar experience.  I knew absolutely nothing about them so decided to stop there and start doing some homework.  Found this thread and now I'm really intrigued about the fitting process which sounds outstanding.

One of the PGA super stores here says it is a fitter but I am skeptical that I would get a good fitting there.   There is a Master Fitter about 3 hours away in TN.  Not looking to waste 6 hours of my life driving there and back for no reason but also happy to invest an extra 6 hours if I'm more likely to end up with a great result.

Just curious. Anyone here have any experience getting fit at a PGASS or Golf Galaxy and did you feel like you got the real thing?

I did at golf galaxy and it was very thorough.  I learned a lot in the process and ended up with a great putter.
