How It Works
Setting up your Elmer M1 Putter is simple.
First choose between the milled aluminium or polymer insert faces. The softer
polymer insert face is suitable for faster greens, while the harder milled face
is more suited to slower greens.
Adjust the lie angle so your M1 sits perfectly parallel to the ground.
Next choose between the two 13g aluminium rails, the 36g brass rails or one
of each. These rail combinations serve two purposes: they can be used to change
the overall weight of the putter, or, by using different weight rails, will
introduce a bias towards the heel or toe - this helps you to take the putter
back on the correct line.
Now adjust the sliding body towards or away from the face. On an average to
semi fast green, the difference between fully opened and fully closed will give
you a distance differential of 20% ie. 3 feet on a 15 foot putt.
You are now ready to experience a totally new era in putting!
Logically, on fast greens you would use the lightweight rails together with
the insert face and have the face and body as far apart as possible. On slow
greens you would use the heavier rails, the plain milled face and close the
face and body gap. However, you can use any combination of the above to suit
your personal style and playing conditions.
Remember these adjustments must be made prior to playing a stipulated round.
As Rule 4-2.a states: During a stipulated round, the playing characteristics
of a club must not be purposely changed by adjustment or by any other means.
