    Get yourself some decent wedges, get your AD to pin down from 21ft, and there’s probably not a lot wrong with the putter you’ve already got.

    Good wedges are much more important than a good putter. To me, it's ironic that players place so much emphasis on upgrading their putter. It should be the last piece of equipment they should be thinking about upgrading.

    Anyway, my understanding has always been it could only be obtained through the club wining the clash. But I could be wrong. Isn't the first time; won't be the last.

    I think it has been bought, I can't remember who, but I'm pretty sure he was disappointed with its performance. 

    In fact it was Poldimaier

    Thanks! I appreciate you letting me know.

    I stand corrected.

    Agree 100% on the average to pin. Hitting it close > gilded turd on a stick.

    Get 3 decent wedges, drop the hybrid and you should see your scores drop. Sadly a set of wedges is becoming rather expensive these days, I remember the days of Z Satin wedges, 250 credits each and they played brilliantly.

    I'd advise getting a 64 degree and spacing the other 2 as evenly as you can between that and the PW in your iron set.

    At the level you’re at id recommend the 3 Max spins.

    Until you get to about Level 78, I think the best wedges are the Titleist Vokey wedges around Level 30. But they're pricey. When they were branded as Clevelands, I had them. They served me very well until I got the set I currently have.

    If you want to save some credits, the Max wedges that Connorjwebb123 mentions above are also a very good choice.

    I had all of them once, dam they were good.

    (5) It actually can't be bought or gifted. It's awarded to the CC that wins the clash for them to give to one of their members. 
    It can, though !

    I know of one player who actually bought it on a whim, a second one commented in the shop that he had done so.

    One shows another putter now, the other still sports the CC Max, but he has retired from the game, obviously.

    IIRC, Mag got one from WGT for a review, and I remember him saying that there are better putters around.

    That said, it looks like a big carrot for the Clashes to me, a Golden Calf as a pinnacle of the whole dreaded "a lot of money for nothing" CC XP thing.
