I like both these putters but cannot choose which one to go for.

Basically which is more popular from you guys I will go with that one.

Thanks

I'm with you here, great looking putters. The only thing that I don't like about the Jailbird Mini s is that you can't remove the weights, but you can on the 1w s. Whats up with that?

I wasn't aware of that.

I'm changing the grip as well so hard to know how they will feel

They have a weight kit for the O-Works line. What makes you say you can remove weights on one but not the other?

The weights are not changeable on the JB Mini, it is what kept me from trying one.  The head design is too shallow for heavier weights.

I rolled the JB Mini just the other day at GG and was super impressed with how nice it rolled. Ball wants to just go straight and it actually line up behind the ball very well. And the 1w has always been one of my favorites. I'm in slight ponder mode of the JB mini ordered from Callaway with the black shaft in it.

If you like the looks and feel of both, I would say choose the one that you can aim better.  Put a coin on the ground 1-2 ft in front of you. Line up the putt, roll it.  Buy the one that rolls the ball over the coin.

A) If you can't hit it with either, pick up the coin and leave the store. or If they offer fitting service at the store, go give the coin to that person and ask for help hitting it.

B) If you can hit it with both,  try it again from 10 ft.

C) if you can't test before you buy.. Buy both from a place with a great return policy :)

I believe the Jailbird is said to have a higher MOI.  Which should mean more forgiveness if that's what you are after.

Ordered my mini slant last week and got shipping notice Saturday which surprised me since i ordered with custom grip and 1* flat.

Checked this morning to see that order was being held up in Mexico due to some “commodity description information” that needed to be addressed by Odyssey. Called odyssey this morning to see what that was about, waited on hold for 15 minutes to be told he had never seen that before but he’d check with his supervisor when he got in and shoot me an email with an update.

No update & the shipment is still being held up, though UPS has posted a couple of updates that basically say the same thing. Hopefully  it clears tomorrow, regardless of update from odyssey or not.

Not really the customer service I’ve come to expect from them, but maybe Callaway PreOwned & Ping have just spoiled me over the years. In Hindsight I probably should have just ordered stock and changed the grip myself.....but I didn’t know custom didn’t come out of Carlsbad.

I'm also looking at these 2 but throw in the marxman w/ them.  I'm mainly between jailbird and 1ws though.  Too many cool choices this year from Odyssey

Has anyone considered and tested the Jbird Mini vs TM Ardmore 3? These are two mallet options I am considering. I am leaning towards the A3 because of my comfort with that insert.

Ping G400 Max w/HZDUS Yellow 7X
Rogue FW w/HZDUS Yellow 8X
3-5i Ping i500 w/steelfiber 110x
6i-PW Ping iBlade w/steelfiber 110x
50SS & 54SS Stealth Glide 2.0 - 60 Glide Forged w/Paderson Wedge Stiff
Ping PLD3 w/counterbalanced PP60
Titleist AVX or Chromesoft

I tested the Odyssey 1w S today against numerous putters today at PGASS. I demo’d all Ardmore putters amd could not get comfortable with that insert. The O Works 1w S was just so good FOR ME.

I tried so many different putters and the 1w S just kept sinking them for me because of my stroke and feel of it.
