Art Krasniewicz kept burning the edge.
First, a 10-footer singed the left lip. Then came two cup-searing tries from 5 feet.
When his final putt caught the rim and spun out, Art reacted with a good-natured, you-gotta-be-kidding-me chuckle.
Hey, who wouldn’t be? Art’s a scratch handicap; he expects to make those simple putts. In fact, he usually does – when his alignment is on. If Art gets the blade aimed where he wants it, his rhythmic stroke is positively lethal.
On this day, though, that was a seriously big “IF.”
Until he tried something different.
Fresh off his string of near misses, Art swapped his tour-proven putter for a brand-new model he’d never heard of. Suddenly, those lip-burners became no-doubters. And Art’s strained smile became the genuine article. How’s this for a turnaround:
Using his own putter, Art made just 1 of 6 from 5 and 10 feet.
Using the new putter, he drained 5 of 6 from the exact same spots.
Now, you may think Art’s about-face was mere coincidence. Or a case of a good golfer “returning to the mean” after a momentary lapse.
Art assured us otherwise, saying:
He wasn’t alone in reversing his fortunes. Or in praising this new putter’s extraordinary qualities.
“One stroke and it felt like I've been playing it forever,” said Don “Doc” Holliday, a 4 handicapper, adding…
Then there was Richard Carroll, an 18 who’d been using the same trusty flat-stick for 15 years. “I’ve won lots of tournaments with it,” he said.
How do you part with a putter like that? In Richard’s case, quite easily. “It’s going away,” he said emphatically after a 10-minute trial with the new one.
Dan Covington, a 12 handicap, had a similar attachment to his putter – a classic model handed down from his grandfather. By day’s end, it was history.
“This putter,” Dan said of his new favorite, “is crazy cool.”
We couldn’t agree more.
We’re sure you’ll jump on board, too, after seeing what it can do for you.
First, we want to briefly explain…
It’s simple, really:
Making putts requires aligning the putter face precisely to your intended line. How precisely? Consider: An alignment error of just over 2 degrees will cause you to miss a straight-in 5-footer.
Yeah, that precisely.
It turns out this seemingly easy task isn’t easy at all. Which helps explain this eye-opening stat:
That’s according to Dr. Craig Farnsworth, aka “The Putt Doctor,” an optometrist and putting guru to more than 150 tour pros.
Farnsworth has spent decades studying the eyes’ role in putting – and he pulls no punches. “People have no clue about where they are aligned,” he told the Denver Post. “It’s crazy. And they wonder why they aren’t making putts.”
While there are dozens of training aids designed to improve your alignment, you’re on your own once you set up over the ball. Unfortunately…
Their alignment guides, no matter how advanced, aim where your eyes tell them to. As we’ve seen, that’s usually off-line.
Think that’s bad? It gets worse.
Inevitably, poor alignment leads to compensations in the stroke as the mind, which senses something amiss, tries to guide the ball in the right direction. Now you’ve got the double-whammy: lousy alignment and a loopy stroke.
Even if your lyin’ eyes don’t wreck your stroke, you’re still pretty much doomed. Because…
You can make a perfect read. You can judge the green’s speed to the inch. You can even make a flawless stroke.
But if you misalign the putter face and then hit the ball where you’re aiming, it’s not going in. (Unless you alter your stroke’s path to match the correct line – which opens that other can of worms.)
Now, we could spend hours citing data and quoting studies and showing charts that prove all these points. The evidence is overwhelming.
Besides, you know from experience that poor alignment is death on the greens.
What you’re about to learn is…
No matter what your eyes say when you set up over the ball. No matter the putt’s length, the green’s slope or the sun’s shadows. Do you realize what that means?
It means you can stand over a putt… Any putt… Every putt…
With the absolute certainty…
That all you have to do is make a solid stroke… Back and through…
And if your read and pace are on point and no bumps kick the ball off-line…
It means that almost instantly you will:
What a feeling that would be, huh? What a boon to your confidence. Your scores. Your pride.
What an edge it would be to wield a putter with a fool-proof, can’t-miss alignment method built right in.
Specifically, the amazing weapon that changed the game for Art, Doc and Richard:
Now, it’s possible you’ve seen other putters that stand on their own (or claim to).
But you’ve never seen the likes of the S7K Stand Alone Putter – especially not at the price we’re offering.
Coming up, we’ll detail all the particulars that set this putter apart – including its silky-smooth balance and buttery feel. We’ll also explain the physics involved, and share results and comments from the eight astounded golfers who tested the S7K against their own putters.
|Moment of Inertia (MOI):||7,000 g/cm2|
|Grip:||Midsize, EVA foam|
|Shaft + grip weight:||50g|
|Head Material:||431 stainless steel|
|Balance:||40° “toe hang”|
Then you simply take your stance, place your hands on the grip, and make your stroke.
And that, dear golfer, will improve your putting in a big, big way.
explained test golfer Jay Kernan, a 3 handicap. “It lets you make a confident stroke rather than wondering if you're going to get it going on the line you chose.”
You may also be curious how the S7K Putter handles different slope and surfaces. We’re happy to report that it will stand nice and square when the green is:
And yes, it will even stand up in a breeze.
In other words, you can count on the S7K Putter under a wide range of conditions. Now to answer another common question: Is it legal? Yes, indeed.
So if your buddies challenge your new putter’s status – which they will when you start holing everything in sight – tell ‘em to take it up with the governing bodies.
No doubt about it, the S7K is a double-take-inducing conversation piece.
But here’s the real beauty of this unique flat-stick:
From balance to feel to purity of roll, this is a seriously classy club.
That’s not just us talking, either. Our test golfers were duly impressed with the S7K’s overall quality. Asked to guess its price, the consensus was $250 or more. (As you’ll soon see, they were way off.)
They liked its looks. They loved its feel. And of course, they were fascinated with the S7K’s stand-up technology.
Most importantly, though…
The group of eight amateurs gathered on a crisp fall day at Tonto Verde Golf Club in the Phoenix suburbs. Sporting handicaps from 0 to 18, using a variety of grips from “claw-style” to conventional, and wielding an arsenal of brand-name blades, they were asked to hit a series of nine putts – three each from 30, 10 and 5 feet – first with their own putter, then with the S7K.
While Art Krasniewicz posted the most jaw-dropping results, Scott Pulcini was a close second… and perhaps the happiest of the bunch. He started off struggling to a 1-for-6 mark with his putter from short range, then sank a solid 4 of 9 with the S7K – including 3 of 3 from 5 feet.
It was a “hallelujah” moment for the 8 handicapper. “I've tried basically a putter a year for the last 15 years, trying to find something that I can actually putt with,” Scott said. “This is life-changing for me. Golf life-changing.”
For the day…
They fared especially well from 10 feet – where a mere 1° alignment error can cause a miss. Check this out:
With their own putters, the group combined to hole 8 of 24 attempts, or 33%. Not bad. Not bad at all. But they topped it by draining 12 of 24 with the S7K. How good is that?
That’s pretty darn good.
One other thing we should mention: A few of the golfers worried that aligning the S7K would take too long and bog down their foursomes. That’s the last thing golf needs – so we decided to time them.
We’re happy to report that the golfers finished their full putting routines in 20 to 25 seconds. That’s a perfectly normal and acceptable pace.
As they finished, the golfers were itching to share their thoughts on the amazing S7K Stand Alone Putter.
“You step back and the visual aid and the reinforcement of what you were seeing is perfect every time. You're now confident about the (putt) that you just lined up. All you're worried about now is speed. It's got a great balance and a great feel to it. You definitely got a nice soft feel and good feedback through your hands.”Dan Covington (12 handicap)
“With my other putter, there's always a little bit of doubt and I have a tendency to (miss) some putts on the right side. I've always thought it was alignment, but it looks right when I'm standing over it, so it's hard to adjust. With the S7K, you step back behind it (and) you can absolutely see that you're either (misaligned) or you're on the line that you wanted to be. Trusting alignment with this putter, it's 100%.”Don “Doc” Holliday (4 handicap)
“When you set the club down and then are able to walk away and walk up, now your alignment for your hands is right in position. All I had to do was step up and take my stroke. I really felt in control. It's a lot easier to trust in alignment and stroke with the S7K.”Greg Libbey (12 handicap)
“With the S7K, my speed and distance were spot-on. It was simple to line up. You don't have to worry about putting a mark on your ball and aiming that. And as we know, with putting, it's 90% mental. I would recommend the S7K to all golfers, good and mediocre. This putter makes golf fun again.”Scott Pulcini (8 handicap)
“I think we all suffer from alignment problems at one time or another and this takes uncertainty out of your putting stroke. I aimed it (and) it went where I aimed. That's the litmus test for any putter. It felt great. If it doesn't feel good to you, it just goes back on the shelf, and this one felt good.”Jay Kernan (3 handicap)
“The advantage of the S7K over my putter was, I didn't hit any putts that felt like they weren't in the sweet spot. When I hit my putter right, it's good. This one I don't have to hit right as often as I do my putter, so the S7K is more forgiving. I seemed to get more putts to the hole than I normally do, and that's my biggest struggle.”Jim Uffelman (12 handicap)
“There's no difference in this putter and my putter, except for this one goes where I hit it. I know when I line myself up that (the S7K) will line up 100% exactly where you want it to go. You can't have a better putter than that. This will cut strokes off your game immediately.”Richard Carroll (18 handicap)
“With the S7K, the 5- and 10-footers were money for me. I felt the confidence I needed to make those putts, which is something that I sometimes struggle with. It was so easy. I just sat it down, checked my alignment and went. Didn't take any time, it was great and I'm making putts. The S7K is a great putter for the beginner to a guy who's a zero. It works.”Art Krasniewicz (scratch (0) handicap)
It can happen for you, too. Because there’s no learning curve with the S7K.
Again and again and again.
And when you do miss – hey, nobody makes every putt – you’ll still scare the bejeebers out of the hole.
You’ll also lag it closer from long range. Meaning fewer 3-putts, less frustration and more relaxation on the greens.
Improved putting has a way of carrying over to the rest of your game as well. How many times have you rolled in a 12-footer, then piped one down the middle on the next tee?
You’ll even feel less pressure on approach shots, chips and pitches, confident that your putter will bail you out if needed.
That’s a good place to be. And if what you’ve seen so far has convinced you of the S7K Putter’s extraordinary benefits, you can get there right away:
Since you’re still here, you probably want to check out the S7K from all angles before pulling the trigger. That’s smart.
Let’s take a deep dive into the killer features that put this putter in a class by itself.
It begins with the S7K’s standup capability, but it doesn’t end there.
This feature allows you to stand the S7K behind your ball and check its alignment from any point of view. Is it aimed where you want? If not, just rotate the shaft until the face is precisely pointed at your line.
Until you try it, you can’t believe the difference this makes when setting up to putt. “I immediately had a high level of confidence,” said Holliday, “and I just knew that I was going to make the putt.”
The S7K boasts another built-in advantage: Once it’s in position, you just place your hands on the grip and go – no need to adjust them in any direction.
“The putter grip is perfectly set in the same spot every time,” Pulcini marveled. “You literally bend over, put your hands on it, and make your stroke. Incredible.”
Three lines on the flange are used to set the S7K on the intended path as you line it up from behind and stand over the ball. It’s an easily overlooked feature our testers appreciated.
“The visual aid and the reinforcement of what you were seeing is perfect every time,” Covington said.
The "V" shaped sole maximizes the flat surface the putter rests on when standing. It also accommodates standing alone without altering the face alignment to the intended path. Honestly, what good would a standing putter be if it shifted off-line?
Combined, the S7K’s shaft and grip weigh a mere 50 grams. That’s lighter than nearly all golf grips alone. This allowed the designers to put more weight in the head, moving the balance point to the top of the hosel. (You can actually balance the S7K horizontally on one finger placed squarely under the hosel.)
Put it all together and you get a putter that can stand up in a variety of conditions. Bonus – it feels sensational.
“The first two things that stood out to me were the shaft and the grip,” Holliday said. “They're really comfortable.”
The same ultra-low balance point that enables the S7K to stand has a second benefit: It promotes better acceleration through impact. Think of the head like a steel ball on a string, with gravity almost pulling the putter through the stroke – just let it swing and it will follow the true path.
“The S7K has incredible feel,” Krasniewicz raved. “Sometimes I have stone hands, but with this it just seemed to (be) fluid through my hands to the end of the club.”
Now let’s examine that same balance point from above the putter. As you look down, the balance point is in line with your trailing (dominant) hand. Why is this important? Well, the typical putter’s balance point is farther back in the head and disconnected from your hands – making it harder to feel yourself squaring the blade at impact.
Savvy equipment types might think this would lower the S7K’s Moment of Inertia (MOI) and sacrifice stability. Nope. With an MOI of 7,000 grams-centimeters squared (g-cm2), the S7K ranks among the highest on the market.
Long story short: The S7K is incredibly easy to square at impact without manipulating the blade with your hands. And that means pure rolling, hole-tracking putts, stroke after stroke.
The S7K’s sweet spot is in the middle of the face both in height and heel to toe. You might assume all putters are made this way, but they’re not. In fact, most have sweet spots well above the center. The S7K's slender face (half the height of a golf ball) and low steel flange push the sweet spot down where it belongs.
By using a deep, dense fly cut mill pattern, the designers gave the S7K a buttery feel and sweet sound at impact. The ultra-light grip and shaft transfer tons of feedback to your hands, enhancing your distance control.
“The speed and distance control is great,” Covington confirmed. “A nice milled front gave the ball a great launch. The sound of the ball off the putter sounded real soft. It was very nice.”
You’ll love the unique sensation of the midsize, EVA foam grip, too. It’s almost like your hands are floating on the handle rather than clutching it.
Now, remember when we mentioned the S7K’s high MOI? This provides tremendous forgiveness at impact, so putts that miss the sweet spot lose a negligible amount of direction and distance.
“The sweet spot seemed to be a lot wider than my putter,” noted Jim Uffelman.
Once you’re aligned and set up properly, it’s time to focus on impact. Ever wonder where you should be looking at the “moment of truth”? Where the face touches the ball, of course.
The S7K’s strike dot puts your eyes on this very spot, resulting in consistently solid putts.
Make sure to watch to minute 3:30 to discover an extra benefit of using the S7K putter.
That’s the S7K Stand Alone Putter in a nutshell.
It does so much, and does it so well, that we have absolutely no doubt that you’ll love it at first stroke.
