1 Putters on Sun Nov 04, 2012 7:24 pm

AlienUK


Happy to open up the flood gates. We are new to serious minigolf, starting off with our metal clubs before realising the course rubber/plastic clubs gave a better connection. Does anyone have a link to any info as to what to look for in a club and the various pros and cons of different types. I tried reading German pages without success.

Thanks

This is about as good as you can get Alien:

Nifo take Paypal & ship to the UK too. I believe elsewhere you can get them cheaper though, Will would know he just got one but I'm not sure who from!

Hi Alien UK,

There are a few places where you can get clubs from. The 2 German companies you need to email to sort details with!! I will send you a PM with those details on!!

Links to those German companies:

http://www.minigolfshop.de/en/tournament-and-hobby-equipment/Putters/

http://shop.pingvin-minigolf.de/Minigolfschlaeger/

Nifo clubs seem to be used mostly, very good quality. By ordering from the German companies the prices are a but cheaper than Nifo!!!

Thats always the best way to start, you're welcome to try my Nifo for a few shots, Will's putter is very nice, have a swing of that & you'll want one! Smile

Thanks. Nifo Ryner seems to be a favourite, but a lot of cash (cheaper than a good cricket bat though)

Nifo Ryner's not much kop for a cover drive though. Very Happy

Good point!

The 3D putter with the infinite opotionality and adjustment (which probably does your head in) - I guess they are not cheap? Not that I want one but am curious.

I have one Alien & it's possibly the most expensive putter available but I may be wrong! I used to use it & did very well, then I decided to change putter & went downhill fast haha! I'll bring it Sunday & you can have a go with it too. It's actually very good but as soon as you play a duff putt out come the allen keys as it was obviously the putter's fault!

I bought it a while ago for £109 including a spare head, weights, allen keys & putter bag. Last time I looked (a while ago) it was £117 plus shipping from Germany. Possibly (probably) more now!

Wow - but something that will get a lot of use, so not a bad investment

It's well worth buying as good as you can get, in most cases you get what you pay for but some cheaper putters are ok. The 3d putter I would say is almost a great putter but it has a few minor faults, if I was an engineer I'd make one only better! Smile

Another newbie here if I can join in on this topic?

I played in the Open today and noticed a number of 'pink' faced puters. I just wondered what they were?

Most of the pink faced putters are Fun-Sports putters. The Fun-sports putters are cheaper than the big name putters but are still very good putters.

You can have a look at them at www.fun-sports-germany.com

I've decided to flog my 3D putter if anyone's interested, they come in a light or heavy head and this one's heavy - with all five weights inside it's seriously weighty. I have all of the weights & a spare mid green head, both 3D Allen Keys & an unused 3D Putter Bag. The shaft is carbon graphite, with a midsize Crown pistol grip. I also have a spare steel shaft cut down to a kid's size which could be removed & a longer shaft inserted for about £20 at a golf shop.
£60 the lot is reasonable I reckon, I hate to think what it's all cost me Smile
I may bung it on Ebay Germany if no takers as they like them there!

Definition of frustrating: pondering buying a putter for a week, debating it, justifying it and then finally pressing the BUY button..... to be told out of stock with no restock date known!!!!

Don't worry about balls, there's (apparently) 'only' 11,000 different ones to choose from! cheers

I'm going for a Ryner. Luckily it's Christmas soon! And there are too many balls!

Seems the whole world is out of stock - gutted!

If anyone knows where I could fins a cupboard full of Nifo Ryner's I'd appreciate the knowledge! (and maybe a junior?).

***EDIT: got one. Thanks to a bit of collaboration between Harry Rothe and Game N Fun it seems I've located the last Ryner in the wild! (I guess 90cm is the size as I just touch a shade over 6ft)

Great stuff & you have the only ball you'll ever need already (VTK) so there's no stopping you now Alien!
