SeeMore Putter m7 Review by The Hackers Paradise

SeeMore m7 Review - www.thehackersparadise.com

THP has had the pleasure of reviewing most of the SeeMore Putters equipment line over the last few years, and during our recent coverage of the 2010 PGA Show in Orlando, we got the opportunity to see what the folks at SeeMore were up to and what was coming out next. One putter stuck in my head as something that I just could not wait to get my hands on as soon as possible and that was the new m7. A couple of months later, while at the WGC Championship in Doral, THP got some more pictures of this beauty and could not wait to get our hands on one to try out.

Tech Specs
The m7 is a beautiful, classic blade, a tour inspired design based on the best features of SeeMore’s popular m1 and m2 blades but with a back heel cut-away for great balance and sleek optics. Alignment benefits of RifleScope Technology (RST). Full toe hand straight down for m7, slightly less on the m7w. 100% milled stainless steel, with milled aluminum back cavity insert behind the face for enhanced feel and enlarged sweet spot. The m7 is the first mSeries putters to also come standard with a softer milled aluminum face insert. Platinum finish.

Looks
At first glance, the SeeMore m7 looks very similar to that of the m1 or m2, but upon closer inspection you will see a different putter. The two main differences are the cut-away on the heel, which is something I absolutely love and of course the face insert. Outside of those two major differences, the looks are pretty similar. The m7 still features the wonderful RST and the sleek design and shaft that has made them famous among our readers. You can spot a SeeMore user on tour quite easily by identifying the black shaft near the bottom. The face is what really makes the m7 stand out and it is because of the aluminum insert that has been milled to add a softer touch. The face alone, with the way it shines in the light, gets you excited to quickly get this one out on the course and give it a try.

A good caddie understands your game and the moment. He suggests options based on your game, your standing, the conditions and his knowledge of the terrain. Sometimes he knows what you're thinking even before you do. And when you know you're getting good advice, you know your next move is the right move. That's the relationship RSM McGladrey has with its clients.

If you have a 5 minutes these videos are great to watch.  You understand what they are thinking on the course and relive some great stories, espcially video 4 The Masters.  Zach and Damon make a great team!

Bloomberg Businessweek - An Inside Look At A Business Tournaround

0608_chiasson_seemoreSales at SeeMore Putter, a Tennessee make of golf equipment, rose dramatically on new product introductions and clever marketing basics

By Louise Lee

When the late Payne Stewart won the U.S. Open back in 1999 with a particularly strong putting performance, Jim Grundberg took note. Grundberg, at the time an executive at the big Odyssey (ELY) golf brand, was intrigued by the design of Stewart's putter, made by tiny SeeMore Putter.  "We thought: 'Wow, that's something else," says Grundber.  "We looked at (that putter) as a threat."

Grundberg left Odyssey soon afterward but SeeMore remained in the back of his mind.  After Grundberg and three friends later won a recreational scramble using Grundberg's own SeeMore putter, he became even more interested in the company, which by then was flagging.

He called Jason Pouliot, a former colleague at Odyssey, and in 2006 the pair bought SeeMore, betting they could turn it around.  They appear to have done so:  In 2009, sales for the 10-employee company were $1.5 million, up from about $50,000 when they acquired it.  The Franklin (TN) - based SeeMore accounts for a sliver of the golf equipment market, which totaled $2.8 billion in 2009, according to the National Sporting Goods Assn.  Still, SeeMore's growth shows how entrepreneurs can jumpstart an existing business, using even the most basic strategies of new product introductions and marketing.

When Pouliot and Grundberg bought SeeMore, the company was selling just one product, a putter invented by Jim Weeks, a golf instructor who founded the company in 1998.  The design of the putter's head set it apart, commanding $150 at retailers' cash registers.  When a player, looking straight down onto the putter, positions it so that the shaft appears to run between white lines - obscuring a red dot painted on top - the putter head is supposed to be square to the ball, increasing the odds of an accurate putt. "Hide the red dot" is an oft-repeated company marketing line.

Ernie Els Interview at Nedbank Golf Challenge Talking about SeeMore Technology

ELS PRODUCES LOWEST ROUND SINCE 2002
- 01 December 2006 at 19:09
South Africa’s Ernie Els produced a sparkling 67 in the second round of the NGC on Friday, his lowest at the tournament since 2002, thanks to confidence in his knee and a dot on his putter.
Els moved to five-under for the tournament, still five shots behind leader Jim Furyk; a deficit that he could well make-up on the weekend.

In 2002 Els shot 63 in the final round on the way to victory, but since then he has shot 72, 75, 74, 69, 70, 74, 72, 71, 72, 70, 73, 75, and 72.

“I feel like I’m swinging nicely and I’m hitting the ball solidly,” Els said. He also admitted to favouring the knee he injured in a sailing accident in 2005 and that he was readjusting his swing to compensate for it.
