Edel’s central philosophy—removing weight from the toe—is about creating the optimal torque so that you have more control over the putter as the face angle opens and squares during the swing. But the fight against too much torsional resistance is just the start. A hex-shape milling pattern, with larger spaces near the sweet spot and smaller spaces away from center, allows for speed control and minimal distance loss on off-center strikes. Edel’s interchangeable weighting system lets players cater to their aspired tempo for ad-ditional control. Meanwhile, the 1.0 is more traditional (which Edel says helps right-aimers aim left), and the 2.0 has a concave radius on the back edge for a neutral-alignment option. There are even customizable sightline plates to dial in your aiming preferences.

The round grip made me feel more in control. Quality looks. Impact felt cushioned but solid, like every putt was well struck.
Good weight and balance but the softness shines all around.
