Wow...who man's these questions?

This past weekend I got to my tourney and had left all my putters in my practice basket at home. I dug around in my trunk and found a P&A, I have been playing with a Magnet.

The putter name, type, quality....it doesn't matter. Once you get to the point that you can step up to the basket and know that, no matter what you are holding, you can still put it in the basket from 25 ft in then you will stop worrying about all these things.

I practice with all the putters I own, from beadless to big beads...it doesn't matter I'm accurate with all of them. You will figure that out too.

Comet. However it isn't inherently understable.

the wolf is beaded and so is the cobra. There are so many beaded/semi-beaded/micro-beaded putters and mids out there it's not funny. I'm going to guestimate that ~65% of mids and putters have a bead. note: mezcal does not aid with math.

oh and U_N_M is a damn good putter.

I like my comet, but it's straight haha. I guess when it beats in it'll be understable?


Lolol I meant Mids.... I don't mean putters. I am set with wizards as my putter of choice. I'm looking for an understable mid in a good quality plastic that will last longer than baseline (as much as I love baseline plastic, I like my mids in premium plastic)

Eventually yes. If its a Z comet it will obviously take longer. You could get a x comet and beat it up for a quicker result though.

Thanks Keltic! I'm still commuting to High Point! I know you're busy w/the baby and all, but we gotta meet up! I hope 2013 is awesome for you and your family!

Don't listen to this guy.



You want to start w/a Roc and learn its characteristics. You can't shock it into submission. Your Roc has to get some cuts and bruises, a little dirt on it.

Obviously you have a new one to break in slowly, but if he wants an understable mid, you can't beat a beat dx roc for $8

at least with the kc rocs, there is a fairly consistent difference in the plastic. the PFNs are generally of a stiffer and more durable/overstable blend. many of the FN runs i've seen pick up light wear much more quickly and are less resistant to traumatic damage from high speed tree impact.
