Corza Ghost
« on: April 11, 2011, 04:14:03 PM »
I have been trying out the Corza Ghost at GT for the past couple of months but now I saw someone saying that the 2011 putters have something called Pure Roll. Is this a new insert design or exactly what is it - maybe just something cosmetic to create buzz?

It sounds like the PureRoll insert is a bit more than just a design element. TaylorMade claims that it's supposed to promote forward spin and a smooth roll. Basically I think it's benefits are a sufficient launch and quick forward roll to minimize backspin. Making it consistent in accuracy and distance control. So a bit more than just a cosmetic design element it is an improvement in the putter.

Thanks very much for the insight. I guess I'll wait till i see it in GT and try it out. I've been debating on going to a more straight back straight through putter after a miserable year with my Sophia.

Have a look here, gents.  I'm pretty sure all that "improved roll" stuff is just hype.

Ugh, was hoping they had some new technology but I guess that its the 6" between the ears that really do the job :)
Kind of disappointed but I guess with all the stuff that TM puts out in such a short time that its more hype and  buzz. Too bad

Well they had me convinced thanks for the update. Guess you really can't trust manufacturers and their marketing buzz words.

It definitely does work, it's just the same thing AGSI was. They renamed it because no one new what it stood for. I've been gaming the original Corza Ghost for about a year and it's phenomenal.

Ok just a name change - I can kind of understand that
Pure Roll sounds sexier and lot more "User Friendly"
Ty: How does the Corza Ghost stack up against the 2 ball. Any thoughts

I've never rolled a 2-ball, but that's because it never really was my cup of tea. Hard to argue the success of the 2-ball though. I find the shape of the Corza perfect, and I found a nice trick for short putts. Forget all lines but the outside one. Use that one as your guide and it's lethal.

Great that you've found a "keeper"
Im switching froma blade style to this and haven't pulled the trigger yet
I keep demoing both the 2 ball and the Corza and froma looks point of view I definitely leaning towards the Corza
but I keep stroking them both so well I might have to buy both and let the greens deicde once the season gets started

Finally decided to switch putters and couldn't be more happier. Went out today and didn't miss anything inside 5 feet which for me is an accomplishment. Didn't think that anything could get me away from either my LH Ping Anser or Wilson 8802

I too am being haunted by the Corza Ghost... I keep on going back to the store just to roll it and convince myself that it's not the putter for me, but I just can't get over how well-balanced it feels in my hands... Now if I could only get over the feel of that insert...

Hi Darth
Believe it or not I also tried out the Ghost Spider. Althought its larger and IMO heavier it felt great as well. The straight back striaght through with the perimeter weights makes for a point and shoot method to putting. In both cases when you miss its going to be operator error. What kind of putter do you presently use?
