     I recently had a 31 foot putt that was 7 inches downhill and had to use the 60 scale. Ive also run into other situations where I was given the 150 and would have rather used my 60 and left it a foot short rather than hit 15 feet past the hole because of the huge scale. Is there any way we can get a scale option when we putt so that we can decide which one we use? This would really help me on those long birdie putts to at least stop it a little closer for my par shot. Thanks!

    Yes, I have experienced the opposit, where the scale isn't enough to reach to the hole because of uphill putt.

    A scale option is then quite essential.

    I second that. I would totally benefit with that option. There's options for the other clubs. I really sucks when you get the 150 scale and you hit it and it flies 50 passed the hole.

    They need to get on the ball with that. 

    Peace Out!

    I am with tomab.  I have had 2 putts just today where I had to hit the 30ft putter at 100% and just came up short.

    I agree, putting has to be fine tuned.

     This issue is my biggest complaint with the game. On #4, I've had 27 ft w/ 7" downhill several times and get stuck with the 60 scale.

    While I'm here, anyone figured out how hard to hit a putt from the fringe? Not even close to realistic.

     Allow me to share my experiences with putting from the fringe. Unrealistic, yes. However, I'm having to add 8-10 feet of power on my putts on that type of terrain. If I have a severe downhill putt, I'll only add 8 feet, but I've been pretty close on my distances by adding 10 to most. Hope this helps in any way.

    I flop about 90% of shots that are on the 60ft putting scaleor in the fringe.  I am deadly from 9-19 yards flopping...and yes I do it often on the greens.  I flop because Ican almost guarantee Iwill be inside 4ft, and more times than not, I have a chance for it to go in.  For me its a lot more consistant, aleast the way i hit it, than chipping.

    As far as for the topic...yeah...scale option should be added....maybe even telescoping  :).
