I'm not as high level as you, but I bought a Spider putter that was "on paper" 3 times better than the starter putter. However, and this isn't due to mishits, etc., it is AWFUL on distance. The putt will say 6 ft with 0 inches up, and I'll hit it at 7.5 feet, and it still won't get there. Then, sometimes, I'll hit it with the same scenario, and it will roll 2 ft past the hole. I think WGT does this on purpose to make money. I should be putting BETTER with a much better putter (on spec), but I have been putting worse. Funny thing is that I go to the putting green, and I putt like a BAUS, but the distance control doesn't translate to the games, and I think this is in the program...so now that I just bought a putter, they want me to spend money on a better one.
