It could be that you've hit your ceiling... If you're an older guy for intance, it is possible that you just cant get enough speed on the drivers to get them any farther but the midranges can go almost as far because of getting good spin with some clean form.

Damn I suppose so... I am 42 and my knees are soft but damn! I know with a 5 or 10' height advantage I can throw 350+ easy. TBH though I was messing around without my regular Inertias and it is a 5' uphill grade, so that's gotta be 375 on flat net distance right.?

Don’t let one review sour your grapes!

I’ve been throwing mine a TON since I got them. I just got back from GBO where the wind was absolutely insane. I struggled big time off the tee, but the Entropy was plenty stable for every approach, even in the Kansas wind.

No, it’s not the putter version of a Deflector. It’s also not very similar to an Envy or Particle. It’s a unique, overstable, and reliable putter. You should absolutely be excited to try it!

^^I know how you feel. before I hurt my shoulder, I went thru a stretch where I kept rolling my right ankle about every 4-5 months. Everytime it happened I put on a bunch of weight from not getting out to play. Every ten pounds I gained I lost 10-20ft on my drives. Went from being able to hit 400 on flat ground(with questionable accuracy lol) to barely over 300ft in a year and a half. Now I have to throw a hard flex with my fizz photon to get close to 300...

Yeah I don't think I ever cracked 400 on the flat in my younger years but I feel like I was a solid 350.. That last 50' hurts to lose. Of course I also remember back 10 years when I got back into it and I was acing a 250' hole with a panther because that was as far as I could throw an S shot now I try not to blow past it with a Spin..

Oh well it's probably time to try and add some extra stank on it.. I use a slow motion walkup and throw for that matter.. I'm going to practice speeding it up. I've been playing "carefully".

I'm still fired up on the Entropy I want to give it a go but that Neutron Envy is really fitting the bill for short FH.. I will feel funny packing my Nutsac with 3 envy though.

I had no intention of poisoning the well, but I did give an honest review.

It has made my bag, at least for now.

I played with a couple gentleman yesterday that both bag a Harp and let both field test it.

P1: throws low spin; BT? Harp.
P2: throws medium spin; Origio Harp

P1 liked the hand feel and flat top of the Entropy. P2 did not like the soft plastic of Entropy.

P1 throws were going about 20 feet less than his Harp(8/10 condition). P2 did not have his Harp in his small bag(minimalist player).

P1 throws were dumping hard whilst P2 throws were dumping, but with some fade.
(I throw with more spin than either and mine dumped less than either of theirs)

All 3 of us bag firm E Envys at all times.

It was very interesting to watch the shape of the shot change with the amount of spin each of us applies. It was getting to the low light portion of the evening, so I could not see the nose angle as good as I would have wished.

That was kinda the way I'm going.. Haha I appreciate the review I guess I shouldn't use in such a cavalier way haha..

I got a SE Matrix and Halloween N Envy 172 in the mail.. Only threw the Envy and it's fitting the bill.. Got the Entropy coming 172 but I might shelve it.. For now. I always have this desire to collect but meh I also hate throwing stock stamps.. Too many look the same.

Less than a month to the big tourney here.. Gotta settle the bag and lock in my choices
