Well in a bid to be a little more clear, its usable as a gamer but there are alignment aid lines on the bottom of it and it is most effective as a trainer for a SBST stroke. I have seen a commercial on TV and frankly, the commercial is poor production quality which makes me wonder about the product itself. Maybe that's unfair. But it's 2010, using the best one of 5 takes shot with your uncle Bonzo's Handicam is no way to sell product IMO.

It will be a joke to all of us as we watch the infomercial. Then 15 years later Taylor-Allaway will come out with a modified one, with head lights, you know for night putting with the dean's 14 year old daughter, and we will all buy one.

Just like the removable insert wedge, that can spin range balls in a parking lot. We know that idea would never flourish.

Even if were to take the design seriously, it would require some major babysitting with all of the possible scratches to come.  How long before the scratches come along with all the greens out there getting sanded constantly?  Let alone, anything else.

My name is Stephen Ross and I developed the Clearview Putter, and would like to answer any questions or miss conceptions about product.
1. Glare, very rare to have a glare problem on the course. Can it happen, yes but very rare.
2. I have been using my putter for two years and there are scratches on the bottom because I play in Florida and Las Vegas often but when the putter in on the green you can not see them at all. We have also sold approx 700 putters in our area and no one has complained about the putter scratching excessively.
3. Yes the putter is also excellent for training and is USGA conforming and can be used in any tourn or league.

The best illustration I can give players to show the validity of the product in to lay a pen on the ground and stand over it like you would if you were putting and aim it perpendicular to a object 10 feet away then point the pen at the object and tell me if you can aim it any better?

Stephen, great first post and welcome.  Great new product, enjoy you and your company's success.  Please post some other pics of your gamer with the wear and tear non-issues, your production process, your company, etc. - it's a great audience and you'll love the immed feedback.

Center shaft is available now and it does not impede you sight line very much. That is the putter I use for the most part.

I will post what ever pics you would like to see and I will do my best to stay up with responses. Lots of office work today so today will be fairly easy.

I to would like to see pics of the center shaft vs. the offset handle.
When it comes to golf equipment there is nothing like being able to handle something before you buy it.  Are there any retail outlets where you can pick up and feel this putter before buying?

I don't quite get this, Stephen. Can you explain in a different way? Thanks.

I will try to do better...golf is based on perpendicular lines. Players try to square the face of their club to the target line whether you are driving a ball or putting a ball. My reference to the pen was based on could you square the pen to an object or point the pen at the same object from 10' away more precisely. What we have done is help the player aim the face of the club in a different manner, we will be posting our test results very soon and the numbers are amazing. When you play pool or shoot a gun you try to position your eyes going down the target line. With any other putter you are trying to square the face to the target line, that is why golf magazine wrote that 90% of ALL golfers are not aiming where they think they are. This illustration is how you aim with your putter, the bottom one is how you would aim the Clearview Putter.

Hilarious, and probably accurate.

I don't get the explanation at all. Like hbear said, how it that any different than any putter with a long sight line?

No matter what you do when you are trying to aim down a target line your eyes sees everything. So I hope this illustration helps. Even though there is a line behind the putter if you can say you can aim just as will as the line only then you are not one of 90% of all other golfers who can't. All there has to be is a 1 degree difference and you miss a 10' putt. No club is for everyone but this just makes it easier for many golfers to start the ball on the intended line. Putting is about distance and if you are thinking about anything else just before your stroke like target line, set-up or stroke break down then it will be next to impossible to be a consistent putter. This putter will help all three of those aspects very well.

I see where you are coming from Stephen.  Makes sense to me -- seeing only the direct line and nothing impeding that vision.  And I'm glad to hear about the scratches not being a problem.  Will you be coming out with any other styles in the near future?

Sure I can. He is saying that because the putter itself is clear, the elongated sight lines, pointed precisely at the target, are the only visible thing you see, He is suggesting that with a traditional putter even with a sight line, You still see the whole putter, and this will still result in a perception of accurate alignment when in fact, you are still misaligned.

Ah, I understand the concept now, will only see the line on the green...Is there anyway you could show a view at address, instead of at an angle? I can guess what it would look like, but it'd be nice to see exactly what one would see on the putting green...just a thought...

here is a overhead look of the putter when you are set up properly...I hope this helps...Sorry about the quality we have changed the color of the line for production on the putter to white and have not retaken photos for release. I took this of the putter I have been using for the past year.

Welcome to GolfWRX,

I like the design of your putter - it looks great & I understand the concept after reading through the thread. I have two questions for you:

1. Is there a blade design in the works?
2. Will your products be available in left handed versions?

Thanks in advance & keep posting...

The putter is already available in Left handed center shaft and offset.

To answer you first question the blade putter would not allow us to put the aiming line long enough to benefit the player. The longer the aiming line the better as long as you stay within the USGA rules. We are coming out with a mallet head design this summer along with other shapes. Players who have switched to the Clearview Putter from a blade did say it did take a little time but have said to me that since it was clear for the most part it did not seem as large as they thought.

Shorrrno: Thanks for the props, when I started this process many people told me that this was too odd looking and since those same people have started using the putter to this day. This is similar to when Ping came out with the first metal woods. They had a difficult time convincing players this was a better way to hit the ball. I have read one Blog that did nothing but bash the concept without really understanding it. It is my pleasure to come to this thread when at least most people are willing to try to see another way of doing things. I don't expect everyone to use it but whether you "game" with it or not I am sure it will help every other aspect of your game.
