In your experience, does the addition of a bead make it more or less stable?
I’ve read some technical blah, blah, blah but I think on a slow speed shot the difference is trivial. My priority is plastic type and the impossible to describe ‘feel in hand’. I use both…
Feel is super important. Probably a good reason to make both
I definitely find beaded aviars more overstable than beadless. There is something comforting about putting your finger there when you putt and fealing the bead. But, that said, I putt with beadless. I usually use the more overstable putters for throwing, not putting.
I can’t remember now, does the big horn have a bead?
Daredevil has two VERY similar putter molds. They are both beaded.
That’s great folks, I thank you. Daredevil is possibly looking into a beadless putter mold and they were getting the wrong info on what a bead would do, then I thought I had it wrong. But no. A bead makes a putter more stable (no bead Aviar – big bead Aviar). A bead makes a midrange more stable (Buzzz – Wasp).
It’s funny the “information” they get from players across the world.
