PuttOut Putting Mirror Review
Review by Golfshake's Kevin Paver with additonal comments by Golfshake Ambassador Mel Davies
The range of training aids from PuttOut have been well received over the past couple of years. Firstly, the original PuttOut - a uniquely designed parabolic curve that automatically returns your good putts, rejects missed putts but holds your perfect putt, then came the PuttOut Matt shortly afterwards…the perfect accompaniment to the PuttOut.
Now, PuttOut have delivered once again, this time with the PuttOut Mirror.
We first saw the PuttOut Mirror at the PGA Show in Orlando, and got to spend some time with designers, who talked us through the design process and why they made a putting mirror.
Putting Mirrors are not new. There are many of them available on the market, and the guys at PuttOut did a lot of research into how they could make theirs better. Their goals was to get rid of two common issues; the mirror warping and it moving around on the surface you're practicing on.
The PuttOut mirror comes in a handy bag, and included in the bag is a putting gate and two magnetic rubber guides, perfect for getting instant feedback on your practice. The mirror (and gate) also incorporate lots of small spikes on the base to stop them moving, whatever the surface you choose to practice on.
The PuttOut Mirror looks great, and oozes quality, just like the rest of the PuttOut range. They have clearly paid a lot of attention to detail when designing this product. Having it come in this 'easy to pack away bag' makes it super easy to fit in your golf bag and take to the course to use before your round of golf, or throw it in your work bag to take to the office!
The PuttOut mirror is a great aid to help your putting. With the magnetic guides, you can easily adjust them to be as narrow or wide as you want to easily create a gate style drill. The metal gate also gives you an extra level of difficulty to help you work on start line too. And finally, the mirror itself, which helps you with alignment.
All of the elements included with the PuttOut mirror provide you with fantastic feedback when working on your putting. Whether you work on each part independently or all together, it is sure to help your putting.
I found it a serious challenge when using the guides (on a mid setting) and the gate together! However, it was easy to establish my putting faults and how to rectify them.
The PuttOut Mirror really is a fantastic training aid for your putting. At £49.99, you are getting a really high quality, well thought out putting aid that if used regularly is sure to help you improve your putting.
Not a single one!
I’ve been a big fan of the PuttOut products from the release of the original PuttOut, and they have done it again with the PuttOut Mirror. I have been using this particular aid over the past 6 weeks, and from my Golfshake stats, it’s clear my putting has improved. This really is a great piece of kit to think about this season… whether you want something to use at the course, or at home.
Now… we’re not the only ones loving this product. We are now seeing many tour players using the PuttOut Mirror. So, if it’s good enough for them…
A *HUGE* week for us here at the @Zurich_Classic, leading off with a certain star who was this ???? close to winning the Masters just two weeks ago (and WILL win a major soon).— PuttOUT (@puttoutgolf) April 25, 2019

Golfshake Ambassador, Mel Davies has also been testing the PuttOut Mirror.
"I found the mirror a great addition to the Matt and PuttOut putting trainer. Easy to set up and use. Instant feedback as to where your eyes are positioned and the two magnetic guides really help you get the putter square and help gain that all important consistent roll. The 50mm gate is also a handy extra but I did find it easier and better on the Matt than out on the green.
"With a RRP of £49.99 I personally think it’s well worth the investment. It also comes with a handy little bag to keep it in."
