    Now I have to decide if I want to go back to versa and get the sabertooth .

    I have the Sabertooth and it is the best putter I have had. But there is a new option now the new Red Spider putter. Almost as good as the Sabertooth

    Played with several putters and I have to admit this is the best one I have had. It holds the line very well

    I love the Sabretooth.  But I'm having an issue with distance control.  I only use the 30 foot scale and go by the putter movement. There are 5 movements and I have mapped these out on the practice green, first movement is 8 to 8 1/2 at 20% of putter pal.  The problem is that some of my shorter putts are stopping short.  Example.. yesterday during a alt shot game I had a putt of 4.4 1 up, I think, with no extra elevation past the hole. I used the 30 ft scale at 20% and it was short by 3 inches.  Happened twice at almost same distance.  Can't figure it out.  Anyone else having this problem.... Help....

      You answered it already . The 30 ft meter has 5 increments . Correct . They are exactly 6 ft increments . 

      That is how one finds the increment distance on any meter . Divide the number of increments by the length of that meter . 

    pdb1:

    Ping Redwood Z6

    15' meter = 3 increments = 6 ' per increment

     

    30' meter = 5 increments = 6 ' per increment 

     

    45' meter = 5 increments = 9' per increment

     

    90' meter = 7 increments = 12.9 ' per increment

     

    150 meter = 9 increments = 16.66 ft per increment

     

    300 meter = 9 increments = 33.33 ' per increment 

     

    Odyssey Versa's 

    15' meter = 3 increments = 5 ' per increment

     

    30' meter = 5 increments = 6 ' per increment 

     

    60 meter = 5 increments = 12' per increment 

     

    100 meter 7  imcrements = 14. 29 ft per increment

     

    150 meter = 9 increments = 16.66 ft per increment

     

    300 meter = 9 increments = 33.33 ' per increment

    10 meter 2. something ? = 4' ? increments doesn't  click at the top of the 10 

     

    20 meter 2 . something ? incrents doesn't click at the top of the 20 meter 

     

    50 meter 5 increments = 10 ft per increment

     

    100 meter 7 + imcrements = 14. 29 ft per increment

     

    150 meter = 9 increments = 16.66 ft per increment

     

    300 meter = 9 increments = 33.33 ' per increment

    10 meter 2. 7 increments ? = 4' ? doesn't  click at the top of the 10 

     

    20 meter 2.7 incremets ? doesn't click at the top of the 20 meter 

     

    50 meter  5 increments = 10 ft per increment

     

    100 meter = 7  imcrements = 14. 29 ft per increment 

     

    150 meter = 9 increments = 16.66 ft per increment

      This 10 , 20 , 50 , meter is new to me . I am not positive about the meter increments on these meters . Has anyone got that info ?

    They are exactly 6 ft increments . 

    Not what I found when I was on the practice green mapping my Sabretooth. At the easy green, champ speed and the first movement (20% on pp) the ball rolls 8.4 feet.  Second movement (40 % on pp) 19 feet and so on.  I hit 12 putts at each increment, only counted dings, and then averaged them to get my numbers. 

    Thanks for the response but I like to actually hit the ball at the different increments to see just how far they roll.  I use to use St Andy's #1 easy flag and from the left of the green you have a nice level area...

      Not for me . The 30 ' meters have always been consistent for me in that calc . 

      Plus you asked why if you thought it was to go 8.4' . Why was it coming up short ? That is a good explanation why .

    Went to the practice green and tried Standard speed greens...Yes they all came out to 6' increments.  My question was if I hit 20% on Putterpal and it goes 8.4 feet, why would it stop short on a 4.4 1 up putt...when I hit the 20% power mark.  Maybe I'm just not seeing it Paul.  If we have the same putter what is different.... Thanks for trying...

     

     

    edit : I miss read one of your posts...Thought you had the Sabretooth already....

    Putter pal and shot pal all have 10 increments, no matter which putter or club. 10% per increment. 15ft putt I'll hit the first increment of 150ft meter, but an 18 ft putt I'll hit 30% of 60ft meter. These are distances hit, not distances to the cup..
