Padded impact is a bad, but that is not the worst of it, The impact pad is soft and absorbs some of the putter head momentum upon impact, thus reducing the amount of momentum that is transferred to the ball, But all too often the ball is actually impacted by the hard surface at the margin of the soft pad. When that happens, momentum is not reduced, but instead is launched with more power than expected. A golfer doesn't know from one putt to the next whether the putt will go longer or shorter than expected - that is not good for precision putting. The Quantum Golf Putter is designed with a smooth hard impact surface which gives full reliable transfer of momentum from putter head to ball at impact every putt and that makes it better than any padded putter having hard margins. much better.
Some other golf putter designers embody impact pads, hoping to make their putters feel better at impact. Their unstated idea is that padding disguises annoying shaft vibration, But the real cause of shaft vibration would be better eliminated instead of being disguised, and that could be done with a straight sturdy shaft and perfect shaft vectoring (see Big Idea). Impact dampening pads absorb your putting touch and cause your putt to fall short of the cup unless you apply more stroke power, but the amount of additional power you need varies with putt length; All this makes putting more complicated than it really needs to be. Keeping it simple and using a putter that has a solid impact area instead of a padded one is the best, The Quantum Golf Putter is designed with a smooth hard impact surface which gives full reliable transfer of momentum from putter head to ball at impact -- that makes it better than padded putters. .
Some other golf putter designers machine grooves into the impact. thinking that these groves somehow improve impact. or more likely they just cannot resist the temptation to decorate their putters in this way. But scientific testing shows they are wrong, Study results were presented at the Fifth World Scientific Congress on Golf that showed grooving on the impact surface of a putter had no beneficial effect on putting performance. Our even more rigorous laboratory testing showed that putting grooves were actually detrimental to putting performance and here is how, Ultra slow motion photography showed us that the grooves actually bite slightly into the relatively soft surface of the ball during the dwell of impact, and this bite actually increases launch skid, This isn't a big adverse effect to be sure, but it gives us good enough reason not to put groves on our Quantum Golf Putter impact surface.
The Best Golf Putter has the best golf Putting Impact. Quantum has better impact than other golf putters including the leaders Ping/Odyssey. That makes Quantum the golf putter you need,
Some impact area grooving has a vertical component and that cause putting precision problems. Here is how. Of course when this decoration is only slightly machined into the impact surface, it does no harm. But when it is deeply machined, it can have an adverse effect on ball launch. The vertical component of deep grooves interact with the dimples on golf ball, especially on very short putts, sending the ball off your intended line, sometimes more, sometimes less. Obviously this uncertainty is small, but still detimental, and it can be avoided easily- just do not use a putter with impact area grooving especially any deep grooving that has a vertical component, Quantum's impact surface is smooth and hard and that is another way it is the better golf putter,
Golf Putters that lack the Big Idea and bad for golf putting performance. no matter what other beneficial features they might embody. But when a golf putter embodies the Bid Idea, then other beneficial feature make it even better. Quantum Golf Putter embodies the Big Idea and none of the detrimental ideas that impact good golf putter impact. Others do not. and that makes Quantum the better golf putter. :
