We presented 4 putters to the team at Quintic Golf in the UK for comparison testing, three well known putter brands and our own R Series Blade putter. One of the three other brands included a premium putter which is widely seen on the PGA Tour, so we were interested to see how good our own putter performed on Center, Toe and Heel strikes.
Quintic Ball Roll utilises a high-speed camera (360 – 1080 frames per second) to track the putter and golf ball throughout the impact zone of either a right handed or left handed player. The system automatically measures over 45 parameters regarding the putter and ball, both graphically and numerically. The data is instantly displayed within the software for immediate analysis, review and intervention.
Paul Hurrion of Quintic works with some of the world’s best golfers, and has worked closely with Padraig Harrington, Ireland’s most successful golf major winner. He has also worked with Danny Willet, the 2016 Masters Champion, as well as Rory McIlroy, Paul McGinley, Eddie Pepperell and Oliver Wilson.
The top video shows the “premium” putter brand, but what is interesting to note, is that the ball launches with backspin and bounces 4 to 5 times off the putting surface before it begins to rotate forward towards the target. These are not ideal characteristics for what is perceived to be a premium putter brand.
Enter our R Series Limited Edition Blade. As you can see from the video clip, the ball begins to roll almost immediately with virtually no backspin. In off center hits, our putter was more consistent than the other three brands, with the ball still tracking accurately towards the target.
The Quintic Ball Roll System is the industry leader for performance data when it comes to putter performance testing. Our customers have told us it’s the best feeling, best rolling putter you’ve ever owned. Now we’ve got the data which proves what we’ve always known about the Aidhm R Series Blade Putter.
