Momentum Transfer

Momentum is known by physicists as the quantity of motion of a moving body, and it is measured by the product of mass (head weight) and velocity (swing speed). Much of the quantity of motion (momentum) of the golf putter head, is transferred to the ball upon impact and the rest is spend in dwell (next topic), glide friction. and the stroke follow-through. 

The golf putter is very unlike drivers and field clubs, Golf putter momentum is generated mostly by head mass, and not so much by stroke speed. Momentum is a function of Mass (head weight) and Velocity (stroke speed); but putting stroke speed is very slow, so in golf putting, momentum must be generated mostly with head weight and not with stroke speed. This is what makes a golf putter much different than other golf clubs. Field clubs and especially drivers generate their momentum mostly with swing speed, and not so much with head weight. That is why field clubs have light-weight heads, and putters need heavy-weight heads.

The head of the Quantum Golf Putter is massive (about 600 grams), so it generates great momentum even on the slowest of putt stroke speeds. Other old technology golf putters, especially the blades suffer problematic momentum. Why: because lack of sufficient mass especially on short putts. Even mallets which embody more mass than blades, suffer insufficient mass for precision putting. Not the new Quantum Golf Putter which has sufficient mass for precision putting.

Shaft Color also Matters

A black putter shaft is not only elegant but also practical. Shiny chrome plated shafts that are typical of Ping style blades and Odyssey styl mallets look nice, but they reflect sunlight and distract your attention from the job at hand. A basic black shaft is better because it disappears from your mind's eye and lets you concentrate of putting. But that is not all. The black shaft of the Quantum Symmetric Golf Putter also reflects a fine line that integrates with the alignment aid on the top of the head - this makes proper putting setup intuitive. Only new technology Quantum Golf Putter wins this comparison category because it embodies the combination of a Black shaft with a silver reflection line that integrates with an alignment aid on the head to make proper setup intuitive.​

New Symmetric Technology Golf Putter -- A QUANTUM IMPROVEMENT!

Tactile Grip

Many golf putter grips are made of vinyl and have holes or slits cut in so as to improve feel. But that is not as effective as a solid rubber grip that is covered with tiny protruding knobs that push gently into the skin of your hand as you grasp it, thus enabling you to have a firm hold without needing to exert excessive pressure. The Quantum Golf Putter embodies a tactile grip that feature makes it better than putters which embody old technology grips.

Fitted Shaft

Golfers vary in height and also in putting stance. So it is important for putting performance that shaft length be fitted. Old technology golf putter makers like to sell off-the-shelf, so they offer only a very limited number of shaft lengths, sometimes only a couple or even just one. The new technology Quantum Golf Putter comes with shaft length specified by its user and that is another way it is best. 

Vectored Shaft

Design defective Bent and Offset golf putter shafts have become the norm among present-day golf club hucksters.. How did this happen? Ping started the Offset Shaft Trend with its Ping Anser Putter back in 1950. Odyssey started the Bent Shaft Trend with its 2-Ball Putter back in 2000. Since then other golf putter makers have blindly followed suit. As we discussed in Technology, a bent or offset shaft destroys Polar Symmetry and makes Sweet Impact impossible. Even a perfectly straight shaft if is miss-vectored, violates Polar Symmetry and makes Sweet Impact impossible. The new technology Quantum Golf Putter suffers none of this because it embodies a perfectly straight shaft that is precisely vectored, and that is another way it is best.

Obviously there can be only one best of anything!

Best man at a wedding, best of show at an AKC breeders competition, best actress at the Oscars, or best golf putter for your golf bag.

Compact Unibody Head

The Quantum Golf Putter features a compact unibody head - that means it is made form a single block of material and has no troublesome attachments. Over time, attached parts tend to loosen or even detach and who wants that?  Unnecessary marketing flair like wings, openings, pads, or weights cause trouble; if not at first then most certainly over time. As they say, "Keep it Simple Stupid", and that is exactly what we have done, not so much because that is what they say, but because it is the right thing to do. 

Patented Glider

This unique feature embodied only in a Quantum Golf Putter, does several things that are beneficial to your golf putting performance. It eliminates leading edge bite, trailing edge lunge, and minimizes sole drag friction. Furthermore, it functions like the tread on tires in that it keeps you from skidding off your intended line. Other golf putters lack this important embodiment, and that should be reason enough to toss them into the trash-heap of defective design. 

Laterally Symmetric Grip

Old technology Ping style blades and Odyssey style mallets typically embody grips that are asymmetrical in cross-section; some are made with a flat side while others are made kind of like a pistol grip. The misguided thinking behind this is that this grip asymmetry might somehow help with putter alignment. Even if that was true -- and it isn't -- then how does the putter maker decide how to orient that asymmetric putter grip permanently on the shaft before you even buy it? The more you think about this, the more absurd it gets. Who would think that the putter should be put in charge of putting alignment -- that is the job of the golfer and any "help" in that regard is actually a hinderance. Lateral Symmetry is an important feature that benefits golf putting performance, and it is another way the Quantum Golf Putter is superior to most other golf putters..

Best Golf Putters Putting | SHAFT FEATURES 

The Putter Shaft transmits your intentions to the business end of the golf putter. so is it it important? You betcha! Other golf putters embody bent or offset shafts that are miss-vectored  -- this destroys polar symmetry and that is extremely bad for precision putting. The Quantum Golf Putter embodies perfectly straight shaft that is precisely vectored into the center of mass of the head, plus it is sturdy, fitted, and black -- all of which makes it superior to old technology golf putters. .

Impervious Grip

Field clubs spend most of their time high and dry in the golf bag, but not the putter. It is in use most of the time and during hot humid weather its grip tends to get soggy and slippery. The Quantum Golf Putter embodies a grip that is impervious to moisture; actually it could be dunked in a bucket of water and then used immediately without even drying it off; even then its effectiveness is as good as when completely dry. Not so with most other golf putter grips -- they get soggy and slippery and that is not good for your putting performance. 


No Stroke Wobble or Waver Either

The Quantum Golf Putter Glider holds your intended line and its massive momentum holds your intended touch, so what else can be a detriment to your golf putting performance? Lofted ball launch with backspin, that is what. Other old technology golf putters suffer greatly from lofted backspin launch but not Quantum - Quantum suffers no loft on the ball because it has no loft on the head, and that is another way it is superior.  

Impact Dwell

A person might think that putter-ball impact is instantaneous, but it isn't. In our laboratory, we have observed ultra-slow motion video of golf putter-ball impact, and we discovered that impact exists for a short period of time; a period of time we call "DWELL". Impact dwell is minimal when a smooth solid surface of a putter head impacts the somewhat soft surface of the ball; and it becomes more when the impact surface of the putter is padded or grooved. It is not our intention to make more of this than it really is. But our competitors tout pads and groves as being very beneficial when it is a fact of physics that they really are not. So even though they are minor design defect that barely has any affect on putting performance we feel compelled to address this marketing misconception. The Quantum Golf Putter has a perfectly smooth and hard impact surface which virtually eliminates detrimental dwell.



Best Golf Putters Putting | GRIP FEATURES  

Fatigue is the enemy of golf putting performance and golf putter grip features either increase or reduce fatigue. Is the grip tactile or does it get slippery when wet or sweaty?.. Is it symmetric in cross-section and in length?.. Does it fit the size of your hands?  Even color matters.  

Straight Shaft

In addition to being a requirement for Polar Symmetry and Sweet Impact, a Straight Shaft brings another benefit to putting performance. Here's how: Your putting intentions are transmitted from your hands to the ball through the putter shaft, and when the shaft is straight your intentions are delivered straight-away. But when the shaft is bent or off-set, your intentions are disrupted along the way. And what you see when looking down the shaft during setup is disturbing. Plus a bent or crooked shaft is not coincident with the virtual power vector, so impact will always cause annoying vibration. None of this is good for precision putting. If you remember the analogies we presented in the Technology discussion,you will have to agree that the Quantum Golf Putter is superior in this regard.  best.

Linearly Symmetrical Grip

Field clubs require tapered grips because of high swing speed (without tapered grips we’d see field clubs flying all over the golf course). But the putting stroke is slow and deliberate, so there is no need to taper a putter grip. In fact tapering is actually detrimental to precision putting and here is why: Greens are always sloped and often quite steeply. Sometimes you need to set your stance on the high side of a slope; other times on the low side. When on the high side, you need to grasp higher on the grip in order to reach the ball. When on the low side you will need to grasp lower. Only on the level will your grasp be normal, and level is rare on a golf green. When the putter grip is tapered or otherwise oddly shaped, the feel of the putter changes from one putt to another.  The Quantum Golf Putter has a linearly symmetrical grip so it feels the same no matter where you chose to hold it; and that makes it better for your golf putting performance.


PutterGeek here again to summarize


I will bet that you never thought there was so much to know about golf putters putting. By now, you must be getting tired of it all. But please stick with me just a little while longer. The next topic is quick and easy and then you will know more about golf putters putting than any one else in your circle, and more than the hucksters and shills ever did. Next, let's talk about Quantum Golf Putter FITTING


Best Golf Putters Putting | HEAD FEATURES

The business end of a golf putter is the head, and its purpose is to transfer momentum to the ball and send it down your intended line with your intended touch. A perfected golf putter head will transfer momentum without dwell or deflection; and it should glide over the surface of the green with minimal drag and no bite or lunge, and it should launch the ball without bounce or backspin. The new technology Quantum Golf Putter does all this, while old technology golf putters do none of this.  . 

S​electing a best man is difficult because there is so much to consider; same when judging dogs or actresses. But selecting which golf putter is most worthy of your golf bag is much easier because there are only three features to consider: Grip, Shaft, Head.

Sturdy Shaft

Flexible shafts are usually made of composite material and they are beneficial for Field Clubs, but not Putters. Why? Because field clubs need high swing speed, and a flexible shaft gives it that extra boost at impact. But on the green, the putting stroke is slow and deliberate. Any flex in the shaft is counter-productive to precision putting. The Quantum Golf Putter features a sturdy steel shaft that delivers your intentions without flex and that is another way it is superior to old technology golf putters.

Elegant Black/Silver Head

Some golf putter designers are more interested in creating putters for market interest than for putting performance. As a result we see golf putter designs that look like the patrons of the Star Wars Tavern. These ridiculous putter designs are not only silly, they are detrimental to your putting performance. The new technology Quantum Golf Putter is all business and no silliness, and that is another way it is superior for your golf putting performance.​

Grip Color Also Matters

Do you know why other golf putter makers put flashy brightly colored grips on their golf putters? They want to attract your attention to their product in the putting corral of the retail store. But a gaudy putter grip out in the peace and quiet of the golf green seems oddly out of place; and most likely it also clashes with your golfing apparel.  Maybe you think that has no effect on your putting performance, but it does. ​When you look good you feel good, and when you feel good, your putting performance is improved. You will look better on the green with a conservative basic black putter grip instead of a golf putter with a gaudy attention grabbing grip. Basic black is the theme color for the Quantum Golf Putter, including the grip, and we did that for good reason.

Fitted Head

Golfers vary in height and also in putting stance, so it is important that the Head Lie angle be custom fitted.  Old technology golf putter makers often rely upon bending the shaft to correct for their head-fitting-shortcoming. Of course bending the shaft brings along with it another whole set of problems, so it is the last thing that should ever be done. The new technology Quantum Symmetric Golf Putter is custom made at the head lie angle specified by its user, and that is another way it is superior for golf putting performance. 

Zero Launch Loft with Absolutely no Backspin

The Quantum Golf Putter Glider holds your intended line and its massive momentum holds your intended touch, so what else can be a detriment to your golf putting performance? Lofted ball launch with backspin, that is what. Other old technology golf putters suffer greatly from lofted backspin launch but not Quantum - Quantum suffers no loft on the ball because it has no loft on the head, and that is another way it is superior.  


Fitted Grip

Hands come in all sizes; ladies and youth usually smaller, and men usually vary from medium to large. A factory installed "one-size-fits-all" kind of putter grip is unlikely to fit your hand size and when it doesn't fit that is bad for your putting performance. Some even promote a oversized grip as being somehow beneficial, but using an ill-fitted grip seems ridiculous. Quantum Golf Putters feature custom sized grips for proper fit and that is another way this new putter outshines all the old ones.
