STX (fun experiment with a rubber face-still have)

Scotty Cameron Pro Platinum Newport 2 Mid-Slant (bought it brand new. Currently in the bag)

Odyssey 2Ball Blade -Tour Filled (played with for many years. Still have)

Preface my last five years with in my previous life my putter lineup was identical or probably much worse than yours, I probably had 10-15 putters annually from 18-38 years old (Currently 45 years old). I have watched my brother during my entire life (He's 46 years old) hit the ball all over the map and get up and down from everywhere. I mean he would be pitching from 60-80 yards on par 5's for his 4th shot and make a 30 footer for par, while I would be on the green in two and three putt from 20 feet. It drove me crazy playing with him, because I would hit 17 of 18 greens and shoot 75, while he would hit 2 greens and shoot 72. He drove me absolutely insane! He had the same putter from about 14 until about 10 years ago and he switched to an Odyssey two ball, which he still putts with. During these 20 years of tumultuous putting I probably went through 150-200 putters, but I finally settled on a Scotty Cameron Kombi S about 7 years ago and I still have it in my bag. I have been more consistent and made more putts then I have ever in my life. I finally realized that it's the Indian and not the arrow. Don't get me wrong, I am in a bit of a funk with it right now and I wanted to get a backup to just give me a fresh look for a couple of weeks, while I send my Kombi S off to get it refinished, which will take about 2-3 weeks. I'm sure that I'll putt amazing with the new putter, then getting my Kombi S back with a new fresh look, I'll probably putt like its brand new again!!! TxGolfJunkie, settle on one and stop reading reviews, you might make a ton more putts and enjoy it better. Good luck my friend!

I am positive that I could not list all the putters I own off the top of my head. Heck I am not even sure that I could list just the Scottys I own off the top of my head. An old pic that illustrates my sickness. There are at best guess about 40 or so more putters that are not in this picture that were either in another bag or bought after it was taken.

Is that an Odyssey Metal X Milled 9ht (Black Shaft/Black Head) next to your two ball putter? If so, are you interested in selling it?

Wow I've only change my flat stick once. Went from a milled Ping anser to an Odyssey white hot two ball tour weight. Thinking about going back the the Ping but I am keeping my eyes on this Scottie at my proshop.

It is an Odyssey Protype milled putter so no insert. As you can see I generally don't sell putters and can't remember the last time I got rid of one.

Some of you need some serious Help..  I am here for you.. Message me and I will give you my address and feel free to send me any of the putter that  have failed you.. I am willing to do that for you.. LOL..

 

I have only had 2 putters in my bag since I stated 20 years ago.. 

1st one was a cheap POS, that i bought for $20 at Fred Meyers (Kroger to some of you) when I got my 1st set of Mcgregors cause the set didn't have a putter in it.. 

 

The next is a Golf smith Viper SS1 Blade I built 17-18 years ago.. Still game it.. I do have 2 Pings, 1 is an anser and 1 is a b60.. Not even sure where I got them... The B60 i have polished and paint filled for Sh!ts and Giggles, I might try it We'll see.. not sure.. 

 

BY all mean I will take some of those off your hands for you .. I wouldn't want you to have all those BAD memories just lying around... LOL

I wish I had kept all of the putters that I have gone through. Too many to count but it would be an awesome collection if they were still at the house. Problem was when I was a broke teenager I would go to the second hand sports store and trade one in to get another one.

I used to do the same thing, with video game stuff as well. Looking back, I wish I would have kept everything. I'd have a heck of a putter collection and an even bigger video game collection.

Instead of consistently working on my putting stroke and alignment, I find it's best to just replace my putter and explain to the wife that it's definitely the arrow, not the indian. Then she asked me to make a list of all the putters I've purchased, used and replaced in the last 5 years. 

 

Bettinardi BB1 - Firm like concrete

Bettinardi Studio Stock 8 - Why did I sell you?!

Bettinardi Studio Stock 15 - Looks great but putts like garbage.

Ping Ketsch (Original) - Grooves so deep, they're illegal

Ping Ketsch TR - So good minus the alignment

Ping BB60 TR - not bad

Ping Milled Anser - best blade style putter

Ping Redwood Piper - going on our first date this week

Ping Redwood ZB - drunk online purchase.

TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Spider (with plumber's neck) - sat too open.

TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Spider (with double bend shaft) - classic

TaylorMade Rossa Monza Spider Vicino - drunk online purchase.

TaylorMade Kia Ma Daytona - Bought so I could say I had an Asian putter. Sold so I could say American is better. 

TaylorMade Tour Spider Black - Sold before I could adjust the weights. 

Evnroll ER7 - Garbage. Built in forward press. Why?!

Edel E1 - Hot garbage. Put it on eBay after using it for an hour. 

Nike Method Origin B2-01 - the sight lines...wtf.

Odyssey RX V-Line Fang - A little too soft but great putter. 

Odyssey Versa BWB #1 - who doesn't love putting with an oreo?

Odyssey O Works #7 - still in wrapper, waiting it's turn. 

Odyssey Works #7 CH - great from short, horrible from long. 

Scotty Cameron Newport Tel3 - Hot Garbage. Firmer than the BB1.

Yes! Callie 12 - $20 on eBay, why not!?

Yes! Callie i4-Tech (antique finish) - Current gamer!! Used it for exactly 2 weeks!

 

Current inventory:

Yes! Callie i4 Tech

Odyssey O Works #7

Ping Redwood Piper S

 

 

So there's my putting lineage. What does yours look like for the last few years? 

 

**Also, I blame the staff at MGS for most of these purchases. I think my putter is set and then y'all go and release a new study or review of a putter and I'm off to purchase it somewhere. 

 

Nothing quite that extensive

 

Started Ping Anser - hand me down from years ago...classic but i didn't like it

Odyssey DFX Mallet - can't remember which - horrible, but thought it looked cool

Odyssey White Steel mallet - tiny insert, called it the trampoline

Bettinardi Mizuno BC3 - Goldlike flat stick....was stolen from me in 2013

Bettinardi SS 15 - loved this damn thing - blacked it out, replaced the orange with red and black- now its art in my room

Bettinardi Inovai 3.0 - feels a bit like great sex....current gamer

Bettinardi Mizuno BC3 - you read that correctly, brought it back from eBay! Amazing still, may put it in play next week. 

-------------------------------------------------------

Taylormade M1 430 8.75* Speeder 661 Evolution 6.2X (or Oban Kiyoshi White 04)
Callaway Alpha 815 14* Speeder 665 X
17.5* MP-64 Iron w/Paderson LT X
Taylormade M1 18.25* Hybrid ('17) Aldila RIP Phenom 100 Tour X
Mizuno MP-64 4-PW Project X 6.5 - hardstep 1
Taylormade Tour Preferred 52* & 56*
Bettinardi Inovai 3.0

Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement

Reading some of these it seems like the putters was only in the bag for a couple of hours.  I used to be like this,  but decided to learn more about putting instead of changing putters all the time.  Still love putters but very few see any bag time.   On the lookout for a non-insert replacement for my current putter.

I don't like the new Odyssey Red and Black line just released...I don't NEED another putter...but I sure do want one. That slant neck #7 and all black #1 with the micro hinge face is enticing.
