SOLID GATE by Benock – You are looking at one of the coolest and most sadistic putting trainers the golf market has ever seen. Oh and by the way it’s better made than just about any putter on the market, pure quality micro-milled of A5052 (JIS) manufactured in Kyoto Japan at the Benock HQ.
The Solid Gate putting trainer allows practicing of repeatable putting with focus on aim and distance control. The emotion of nailing a put perfectly and getting the ball to stop on one of the two notches will make you ecstatic. By requiring perfect distance control and aim it really helps in creating a zeroed in focus which ultimately makes the cup seem huge when you are on the golf course.
The Solid Gate comes with a guide that features 3 lessons. After taking those lessons you pretty much understand the idea of why this putting aid is genius. There are two dimples one on each level and the ultimate goal is to putt the ball to rest and stop on one of them.
It starts with establishing your baseline which helps you assess your ability by measuring your current dispersion. One must understand that putts that pass the target do not count as a putt made.
The first lesson is to stand at a distance you are comfortable putting from. Then try to hit the ball firmly with the strength to reach 1m ( approx. 39 inches ) beyond the front edge of Solid Gate and aim to the right or left of the center dimple.
