New SeeMore FGP Stainless Series Putter - First Impressions/Review

Last week, I received the innovative FGP stainless steel putter from SeeMore Putters for a test run. Eager to experience its unique features, I wasted no time taking it out for a spin at my local course. Here are my initial impressions after a single round of play.

The specs on the putter are as follows:

Loft- 3.5 degrees
Lie- 70 degrees
Length- 35"
Finish: Black Satin

My Handicap: 19.6
First Round Putting Stats 31 putts: 7 one-putts, 2 three-putts

Allow me to share a bit about my putter journey. My trusted companion on the greens is a Scotty Cameron Red X3, a 35" beauty that has been with me for a season and a half. The SeeMore FGP stainless steel putter, a center shafted blade putter, piqued my interest as it's a departure from my usual style. The only other blade putter I've used was a Never Compromise #1 Milled Series putter, and I've never had the chance to try a center shafted putter before.

After getting to the course early, I was glad to hit a bunch of putts because, with this type of putter (RifleScope Technology/ center shafted), I had to play this putter in the middle of my stance. A change from my normal putting stance. The practice helped, at least with the first few holes, as I one-putted the first 5 holes. :)

When it comes to putters, the look and style of a putter are such a personal thing. For me, the FGP putter that I received came in a black satin finish. I love the look of the black finish on this putter. The black matte finish frames the ball beautifully, and as soon as I put it down, I liked the way it looked to my eye.

The feel of this putter is excellent, and all the weight is behind the ball. The ball really comes off the 100% milled face beautifully. Like I said, for the first few holes, the putter was hot as I'd pick my line, align it, and give it a whack, and they were going in. Later in the round, the putts weren't falling as well because I had some longer putts and was still trying to figure out how to adjust to the speed of the greens, or lack thereof, and the length of my stroke with this new putter. (the greens at my course weren't the best, as it's still pretty early in the season)

I'm eagerly looking forward to the next phase of my testing this weekend, with the weather promising a perfect golfing day. SeeMore Putters has definitely caught my attention with their FGP stainless steel putter. It's hard not to be intrigued by a putter with such a rich history, including winning the 1999 US Open and 2007 Masters.

Heat sealing is another method used to seal stainless steel. This method uses heat to seal two pieces of a material together at the place in which the pieces connect. The temperature in which these materials are heat sealed reach the temperature at which fusion occurs, which also involves a certain degree of pressure.
