    conveyorguy:
    But wherez the irons

      Ironically , they are not here .

    conveyorguy:
    .lvl 35 seems more accurate than the higher level.

      They are probably worlds difference . With the Versa's the L 70 and the L 96 are very similar . But the L 86 is unhittable . 

      I just changed putters from the

    Odyssey Versa #1 Black Putter (L96+) 4.5 meter speed

      to the

    NIKE Method 001 Putter (L94+) 5.0 meter speed 

      I am having trouble with the 10 , 20 , 50 meters . The increments for each meter don't seem to be accurate . And the ball speed seems to be much slower . I know the meter speed is .5 slower . But I didn't think that effects ball speed .
      I now find out that the L 101 Nike has the 15 , 30 , 60 meters . That won't help me now  . By the time I get to L 101 . I'll probably figure this one out .

    Meter should not affect ball speed, but I find greens on different courses not all the same, ie Merion seems slower than most.

    Maybe try a cheap old Ghost, worked pretty good for DJ :)

      What I mean is for instance . When i hit a putt at 3 ft with the Versa . It zips right into the hole . When I hit at 3 ft with the Nike it rolls slowly to the hole . I have been short on many putts inside 12 ft with this Nike . Either the meter is wrong or the ball speed is slower . 

      30,000 putts with Versa's I had the distance figured out . Just could never aim . I seem to be closer with the aim with this Nike . But I haven't figured out the speed yet .

      On the 10 meter . It appears that the increments are at 3.333 . On the 15 meter it is 5 . Hitting a 3' putt I would only move the meter 3' on either of those meters . I still find that at any distance I choose to hit . The ball travels at a slower rate anywhere within the 10 meter  then it does with the 15 meter . I don't know why . But it appears that way to me . 

      I guess it is the .5 slower meter that is that noticeable .

    Much as I love the Nike woods and irons, sounds like a vote for the Versa. With which I agree.

    It isn't just you who thinks this.  I actually bought the original Method when it came out, it was new and shiny and the guy in the pro shop threw in an old sock to cover the head.  He told me it (the sock that is) had belonged to Bobby Jones but I'm not sure about that, smelt more like Walter Hagen to me.

    Anyway, the 10 foot scale on that thing was totally dead.  Compared to the Ghost Spider I'd been using it seemed like the putter face had half an inch of soft rubber glued to it.  Nearly every single putt I hit with that scale came up short.  Not that there were many, the pro shop guy got it shoved where the sun don't shine after a very short time.

    I believe he tried to sell it to another customer as once belonging to Bill Clinton.
