    With the spider it actually seems to be @ 25' club 9' first click, 18' is the second, 25' third. At 50' setting seems to just a bit shy of 10' per click back. About 12' per click on 100' club. Haven't used 150' yet

    I find the 25 meter to be 8 and 10. after that i would switch to the 50 meter which is 10 on the button. the 100 meter seems to be around 12 to 14. Half is a perfect 50. If you needed to use more than half of that meter, I wouldn't worry about the puttter....:)

    Great advice thanks so much.  Just wanted to add another suggestion that i used to help me with judging swing strength and it works for every club.  Simply put a piece of clear tape on your monitor over the area where the swing meter is. Then with a marker draw lines at the 25%, 50%, 75% marks... I even put marks in between those. Then you take the clubs distance and use a lil simple math to calculate which mark is the one to stop your meter at.  For example if you have a 18ft putt and your first putter distance is 25ft  then 25% = 6.25ft, 50% = 12.5ft, 75% = 18.75ft  so you would take it to the 75% mark or a hair past to get the right distance. Hope this helps.

    I do this same thing on the real course but my playing partners become upset with me for laying down so much tape on the putting greens.  They are also not too happy with me when I use the two yardsticks laid ene-to-end when I hit my driver off the tee.
