Hey all

I'm in the market of grabbing a new Edel TB putter. Unfortunately there aren't many places (basically none) to try these out. I have hit the Odyssey toe up and sunk a ton of putts with it.

For those who are still using, is there any difference performance wise (in terms of feel or face closure) between the E-1 and E-3 models?

I have a slight arc store and have played a wide blade for over 2 years...

I have an Edel E-3 and have been using it for the past year. In terms of feel or face closure, no there won’t be a difference between the E-1 and E-3. The difference will be how the shape of the head, combined with shaft offset, alignment aids, length and loft, affect how you aim the putter.

That's good to know. I think a torque balanced would work well for me. I have a slight forward press and a bit of on arc. If anything I leave the face open juat a bit at impact.

i seem the be the exact opposite of 81ping i tend to close the face to fast and pull the putts, been looking for a better way to putt. I have been looking at doing the Edel fitting.

I had a tendency to aim a little right. Edel fitter put in an anser shape with plumber neck with most offset, one line on top and two lines on back. I aimed it perfect after that. 30 gram weight where my bottom hand grips to help with speed control.

Their fitting process is pretty cool

Thanks. I'm still very torn between an edel and a pure custom stick. There are many options at the same price...let's say 350USD.

I'm not sure if the pixl insert and torque balance will out perform a traditional stock. A 1 hour fitting won't exactly answer that question.

When I think of buying an edel, i always wonder why more people don't use them...is it just lack of advertising?

I went to get fitted for the Edel torque balanced but ended up fitting into their standard putter. It was a better fit for me.

Why spend all that money on something that isn't truly fit for you?  Edel's fitting is second to none.  Don't worry about the insert or torque balance...the fitting will make sure the putter is fit to you so all you have to do is do your normal stroke.  You will have better distance control and aim than with any other putter or fitting.  I think you will find that once you start sinking a lot of putts, the appearance and feel will become of less importance to you.  Besides, they have so many custom options that you can get something that both looks good and performs.

I was fit at their headquarters and was blown away.  I wasn't even expecting to purchase a putter, but the enlightenment was amazing.  After I got my putter, it felt so different that I continued to use my old one.  Then, a few months later, after I continued to be a bad putter, I figured "I need to give this putter I spent so much money on some real time".  My confidence grew with it, and then I really started to putt better and better.  After years and years of switching putters and pretty much being a bad putter, I can safely say that I haven't switched away (or thought about it) from my Edel for over a year, and I would consider myself a pretty good putter now.  I'm so sold on Edel and their fitting that I'm considering going through their single length iron fitting and wedge fitting.

Jury is still out for me. Honestly my putting has been such a mess that I seriously doubt the putter I'm using makes much of a difference one way or another. I will say I have confidence with where I'm lining up and I do like the way it swings.

I've recently started to look at the hole instead of the ball when I putt. I've seen immediate improvement but its something brand new and I could just be enjoying a change. If that sticks though, I wonder if I need to go get things checked out again at their hqs.
