I got the putter in the picture with those old Hogan's. I was toying around with it in the house thanks to Mother Nature and her desire to perspire...

Anyways I have another one just like it on the way thanks to aliens8mycow.

Does anyone know of modern brands besides Wilson that make this style of putter?

I'm on the look out at every garage sale and antique shop from here to the Canadian Border for hidden gems.

8/10 from 10'

10/10 from 5'

6/10 from 15'

Beats my Taylormade all day!

The Ping Tess is similar to an 8802 style putter and is available in the current Sigma G series. I feel like I have seen some recent boutique brands carrying the 8802 style as well. For me, this style of head does not work well for accuracy but I do love the classic look.

I think back in the day Corey Pavin used a Cleveland putter similar to an 8802.

Lajosi is another boutique brand of the classic 8802. I was looking for an 8802 recently and had looked at some of the boutique brands. Then I realized why buy a souped up version of something that was already perfected 50 years ago.

I love classic putters. I gonna cut my Rife 2 bar down for my wife to use and I staying strictly with classic blade putters from now on.

Toulon is releasing one, though I don't know if they can be considered a boutique brand anymore--so let's throw that in the main OEM category.

I think the Bobby Grace 6313 is a perfect basic blade in the boutique category. But his multi-rebound insert options are also pretty cutting edge in the distance control department.

Alternatively, if you're hunting uber boutique in a true bare bones blade, this one is pretty special - http://www.mcssl.com...4a032d1e84a367f

He did use the 8802 style for many many years, now he uses the #9 that he has bent all over the place. It works for him I guess.

    he best players don't get overwhelmed with mechanical thoughts as they stand over the ball. They pick one feel-based thought and go with it. Steal one of these tour thoughts for some pre-swing clarity.
