    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..
    The first putter increment w / 150' meter = 16.6 ' .....................................w / 100' meter = 14.2' ......................Some prefer watching and putting by these increments . Using the 50' meter . Shots under 50 ' can hit using 10' per increment on the putter and the meter as well . Very accurate .

    We're talking about the increments on the putter swing for individual putters.

    can we run the test with the high level sabretooth? I've noticed a few more putts jump off line than they should

      To run that test . You have to be able to repeatedly hit the ding dozens of times in a row . From different distances . 

      The results would be that the putter is damn good . It is the user that isn't perfect . We are human . And cannot repeat accurately or often enough to blame a putter for missed shot . 

      The guys that ran those tests are some kind hybrid Andriod that were made with the same formulas that the VEM was made from . If you look closely and magnified , you can see their model #'s stamped on their Avatars . 

      If you don't believe me . Message VEM9000 . and ask him .

    There are ten even increments for each scale. As such, each increment equals 10% of the chosen scale. 10% of 150 equals 15, and 10% of 15 equals 1.5.

    Look mate, all that you have posted regarding increments is garbage and only serves to mislead others. 

    I'll let my putting stats speak for themselves. How are yours?

      I am sorry you are not understanding the method or the types of increments I am referring to .

      Let me explain it .

      As you draw your putter back . You will see it jerk slightly . This will happen in precise and equal increments for the entire swing or meter length .

      Each type of putter has a different count of increments . Each increment has a distance equal in each increment .

      It is the putter swing that has the increments I am talking about . A different method than you are talking about .

      Many WGTers use this method to measure how far the ball is going to travel . because it is so precise . And tried and tested .

      It is obvious that you have not been aware of this method . I have not mislead anyone . And only mean to inform . I usually have my facts in order .

      But have been wrong many times . Not this time though .

    It appears you are describing the level of forgiveness, not distance increments. Putter Pal uses 10 increments, regardless of which putter you use.

    I do it by the ticks of the backswing.  That was how I was taught on the forums 5 years ago and works good.

    Now if I could only putt, I would be a Champion

      Finally 2 confirmations .

      Yes Avatar putter movements . if you will . Or ticks of the backswing .

      Actual miniscule movements of the head of the putter .

       On the previous pages i have charted the exact increments ., Actually just copied from other players for years . Some i calculated for my own charts . But nonetheless . As valid as any other method .
