Anyone use them for putting or have used them?

I tried to putt with my K3 Berg last summer but found it was dropping too quickly so I was putting mainly with the Reko until I switched to something else later. At that time, my putting form was still bad and inconsistent but I improved quite a bit since then.

Still I always liked the feel of the Berg (and K3 plastic) in my hand so I decided to try it again today and I loved it. With the space I have at home, I can only practice putt up to 25' but I had good results. I just bought a couple more of K3 Bergs online and I plan to give them a go at the putting league next week and see if my results are at least as good as previous weeks and also see how it goes for longer putt.

It takes alot of snap on a spin putt to get them moving, but I was canning 45 ft putts at about a 60% success rate around November last year. Being out of practice I will be lucky to get the disc to move 30ft before dropping right now. Great thing is, if you miss the putt, you have a 5 foot comebacker.

If I can get them up to 60' without feeling like I have to put crazy effort, I think I switch back to them. The shape of the rim with the puddle top make it very easy for me to putt smoothly with a lot of spin on any angle I want, with a straight or lofty flight.

I've practiced some more and up to 25', the glide or power needed at that distance is not different. I guess before it was more about confidence and consistency, a scared or off timing spin putt just become a weak push putt.

I did putt them for about 2 years. I have been in and out of slumps for much longer than 2 years. The berg was great. Stayed close and was point and shoot. Eventually I decided tempo was a big problem with my putt and switching back to the wizard has made me focus more on tempo.

There is a learning curve, more so than other putters but if it feels good it is worth the time.

Picked up two newish looking K2 Bergs from a used shelf for $8 a piece. First throw with them I was extremely disappointed because threw them low like i would a zone and they just dumped out short. Started throwing them a bit higher and they were phenomenal for both forehand and backhand. So easy to range.

I liked them enough that I headed back to the shop and picked up two K3s and one K1 to compare. I was surprised how much I like the K3s for putting.

Great mold. I'm interested to see how well these work out over time.


Edit:

I was also impressed how well it worked for short flex throw in shots. I was over 50% from 50-60 feet.

I had a ~100' throw in yesterday with my K3 Berg. Laser beam right at the basket and it started dropping right before it hit chains. If I would have missed left or right I wouldn't have been more than 7' from the basket. I am really digging this mold.
