Retro Dagger 2X World Champion
The Dagger has been developed in co-operation with Dave Feldberg and is a deep dish beaded putter. Feldberg says it is comparable to a big bead Aviar, Wizard, Challenger, etc., but deeper with more float. Why is it important to be deeper? Feldberg says this is for logical reasons and personal comfort:
- Personal Comfort I don´t want to feel space in my hand while putting. I like a flush feel that fills my hand. I believe since I am not squeezing to reach for the flight plate that I get a more consistent release. My hand always starts from the same position and thus I donít have to rely on muscle memory to succeed. How much to squeeze down? These are factors I don´t need.
- Logical Reasons I am not using this disc for distance, rather putting and approaching. So the deeper the dish the more air can be trapped underneath causing it to stay in the air longer. You shouldnít have to slam your putts, I was taught to put a medium speed on it and let it float into the chains. To be able to make my putt if there were no chains, just a pole and a bucket. This way you can try and make putts without being in danger if three putting. Less action out of the hand, less reaction from the item it hits. Less spits and roll aways when you control your speed and float it into the basket. The dagger ill allow me to bring back my old stroke, I am pumped!
