Can anyone post a pic of their model 11 with a ball at address?
Here you go, it does seem to resemble Justin Thomas' scotty a lot. I'm a big fan so far. I should also note that I had the HB1 prior and I like the face more on the SOFT. It actually feels a bit more firm to me, I think the SOFT name is throwing people off.
I see you have installed a PINGman on it. How does the light grip feel with the heavy 370g head?
Definitely feeling the head more than my other putters. It took me a few rounds to get used to it but I now feel like I've got the stroke down where I just let the head do the work which helps me not get too handsy. I would say it's just light enough at 33'' to be manageable for me personally. Yesterday I walked Torrey Pines South and the only moment where I noticeably had to think about my stroke due to the heavy head was at the end (hole 15 on) because of overall fatigue. Early in the round it didn't bother me at all.
If it was a bit lighter it would probably be the perfect putter for me but it's still good enough for me to carry in my bag until something else knocks it out. I've started looking over at my BB29 and thinking if I want to trade it in.
edit: But in terms of my arcing stroke, the hosel / toe hang with the grip is great. I wanted to like the original HB11 but it didn't quite feel "right". The SOFT 11 is close to the 1 in terms of closure rate for me, I could use either one with my stroke comfortably. But it feels like I setup with the 11 better.
