Considering a new putter


Brian A
 Share

Recommended Posts

So I am debating on getting a new putter, I currently use the TaylorMade Spider Blade Counter Balanced putter. I am a fairly decent putter, usually average under 2 per hole. I am ready to go all in on a putter, and was looking at a Cameron Newport or going totally different style with the Spider (since it seems to be the most popular on tour now).  

 

Are either of these really going to help me that much?

 

After playing around in the store with the spider it seems that this club is harder turn or not come back smooth and straight with due to the longer backside, is that the purpose of the design or am I crazy?

Putting is extremely personal, i wouldn't switch to a huge mallet, just because PGA guys are winning with it......You need to try a bunch out, I bought a Scotty a little over a year ago, and LOVE it, but it might not fit your eye..........Also, look at EVNRoll, Bettinardi, Cleveland, etc....they all make great putters, the question is, which one fits YOU

If I was averaging under 2 putts per hole with a petrified turd taped to a stick the last thing I would consider is changing my putter.

I think we have a winner for comment of the day!!!

I have to admit this made me laugh. I double checked my app, its 2 per hole 1.7 with GIR. So not quite under 2.

 

I just assumed that a better putter help drop it below 1.5

SeeMore, EVNROLL and MLA have some of the best reputations as far as helping alignment.  Check all three IMO.

I guess the question is what do you consider a better putter? Does the fact that a PGA pro plays the putter or that it costs $500 make it better?

The best putter is the on you can start on you intended line and that you can roll a specific distance.

 

Putters are designed in varying configurations to accommodate the way you putt. If you want to play a particular putter because it looks good just understand you may have to change your stroke to get it work properly

Jokes aside I'm planning a trip to get fitted for an Edel. Putting is the worst part of my game. I always miss left, no matter what I do.

I recently bought the Cleveland 2135 8.0 and I love it. Feels great off the face and is super responsive. I basically lived at the PGA Superstore for two weeks as I tried every putter under the sun for something I wanted. Like everyone has said above, its a very personal decision as I have a friend who basically puts with a hunk of metal of the end of a stick and loves it. To each his own.

Putting is very personal.  I happen to despise the look and feel of a mallet style putter.  The classic look of an Anser style flat stick is what appeals to me.  I however cannot putt with one to save my life.  Instead the golf gods have cursed me, and their will is for me to putt with one of the most hideous putters ever made.  But..it works.

If you can make putts with a paint bucket on the end of a broom stick, so be it. Those pretty putters might look good however if it ain't putting out, you got to kick er out of the bed [emoji6]

Rather than looks, make sure you get a putter that matches your type of stroke.  Face-balanced, slight arc, strong arc; if you get one that doesn't match your putter stroke, it will fight you.  Then get the correct length and lie angle.

Guilty. I bought a putter suited for strong arc, but it looks "cool" i can't hit big cups from 6'z

KB another thing as i am sitting here looking at putters is the feel when it leaves the putter head. Do you like a soft feel from an insert that most phtters have today or a traditional milled blade or mallet. If i could have my wish for the putter of my dreams it would be ?????

I am looking at the Edel Brick or the Ping Sigma Kushin. I've read all I can find about the Edel. Anyone gaming that Ping?

I game the Sigma G Anser, and I've tested the Kushin and they're both amazing putters. I ordered the Anser before I had a chance to test the Kushin, and I almost regret it. I like the weighting of the Kushin just a little more I think. Very solid putters.
