I can appreciate the idea of contrast against the green, but what about the total lack of contrast against the ball? One reason I like black putters is that they frame the ball so nicely; that would be totally lost with this.

 

Aside from the color, the headshape does nothing for me, I'm not a mallet guy.

I like the white head idea, but the shape is boring. The white polymer SSB putters have way more soul.

I like the color, I've always wondered about a white putter, but I think it needs a dark faceplate for contrast, or a dark line across the top front. The style is pretty generic, but I do like the inserts on thier other putters.

 

Also, there's no way to scoop a ball with this putter, I hate that!

It actually does have a black face insert...take a look at the top picture and you can see it. Unless you were referring to something different.

 

I like the idea of contrasting with the green grass - but....it needs some contrast with the ball - maybe a black face insert to help frame the ball.

If it is basically the opposite premise of the Nike iC (the Taylor Made is made to stand out, the Nike blends in) I wonder which one actually makes more sense?

 

I remember those Nike putters and that idea of making it blend in. Not sure what the point/logic behind having the putter blend in is. To me, the contrast makes it easier to line up the putter. It might be different from person to person - some might like contrast, others might benefit from the blending.

I think the concept of the NIKE IC putters was to have the green grip, shaft, putter head blend in with the turf but it had bright white alignment lines that then "POPPED" and let you focus only on lining up the putt. They were pretty ugly though.

 

Kinda like the white putter concept but I'm not a fan of this style. Looks really clunky and cheap.

Shape looks well thought out and balanced. I think we are looking at the future of putters, less milling and more molding. If you don't like color, your not going to like John Daley's Fashions either.

Love Daly, can leave this one though... Maybe the spider will work better.
