I saw last night you can create your own TaylorMade Spider. I thought it was neat. And I was impressed with the color options.

I dabbled for a year with the Bettinardi, Kuchar style arm lock. The putter it self was first class. The puttee was not. I picked up the arm lock style, fairly quickly, with some mild success. Then smelly things hit the fan. I struggled mightily at the beginning of this season. April for us Northeasterners. I went back to a 25 year old anser style putter, I had used for years. Things improved tremendously. After reading a lot about putters on Golf Spy and other golf publications. I came to a fork in the road. Expensive or not too expensive I am not endorsing any product for fame or fortune. I took a less expensive route. I tried and bought a Cleveland Huntington Beach 1 putter, 35 ". I absolutely love it. Its face is quality milled. Has a great feel with a medium sized grip. I'm a ;little anal, but it has a great click, when struck correctly. I love a great click!!!!!!! I picked this putter up for $99 at Golfer's Warehouse, and it has been my best $99 , I've spent this year.

My EvnRoll is as premium as most anything else I have played. It doesn't have the same mystique as a Scotty but it rolls the ball so true.

You can tell by the build and look it is quality as well as the head over being a fantastically crafted piece.

I vote for whichever you want, but my little "Lili" ER2 is the best I have ever rolled

Get Fit First! Go to club champion or someplace like that and get a professional fitting. Then, based on that, go buy the putter of your dreams....

I finally got fit yesterday and it changed my whole outlook on putting.

Find out if your a radial or linear putter, where you strike the ball, your stroke path, your angle of impact, grip weighting, MOI, etc. Its really eye opening....

Good Luck and Happy Shopping!!

I've always played sub $100 putters. Just like you I decided I wanted something a little more expensive and keep it for a long time (that's the plan at least).

Now I'm married to this EVNROLL

Honestly the best thing you can do is to go roll them.  I was in the same boat as you last fall.  I wanted to upgrade my Ghost Spider S putter to a higher end putter.  I of course went straight to Scotty.  I was really looking hard at the Futura 7M.  As I was trying different putters at a pro shop that I always visit, one of the guys told me to pay attention to the sound as the ball comes off the face.  You could here the skips on longer putts that leads to inconsistency.  I went through Odyssey, Toulon, Betty, TM, and finally Ping.  I ultimately narrowed it down to Ping Oslo and Futura 7M.  The Ping just rolled so much better of the face!  I found that Scotty's seem to feel extremely soft leading to distance issues.  The Ping also just lined up so nice to my eye.  I was sold and to throw a cherry on top, they guys said let's take a stealth and make your putter a 1 of 1.  Enjoy!!

A proper fitting goes a long way. I'd invest in that alongside a putter that has a great feel to you in the hands. That feeling every time can translate on to the course.

What does "let's take a stealth and make your putter a 1 of 1 " mean ?

 

Ping did a run of Stealth Olso's before the Vault 2.0's came out.  They were all 100% blacked out, so we drew up a design sent the putter back to have it customized.  Ping added in the white paint fill in the pictures and it flattened 1*.  We also put a black and white SuperStroke grip on it with a black leather putter cover with white lines across.  There's not another Oslo out there that looks like mine.

Do not buy off the rack without rolling them.

 

I had this idea in my head about a certain putter being great for me last season. It was an S neck and boy was it cool.

 

Yeah, well Cool is hitting everything off the heel. Saved myself nearly $250.

 

Put them in your hands then treat yourself!

Watch the TXG video about putter fitting if you are hesitant to get a putter fitting. Whichever method is used it will be handy knowledge in your quest.

If you are planning on purchasing a more expensive putter do it right and go full custom so its one of a kind and has more value to you than just another one off the rack. Finish, stamping, weight, head shape, neck style, milling pattern and materials and everything. I would suggest checking out MannKrafted, Tyson Lamb, Gene Nead, Xenon, Machine Putters, Bradley Putters, Raybon Putters and Lajosi. All produce great work with great craftsmanship and customization. If your wanting a great performer that is more expensive get fit for an Evnroll and then get it customized by someone like Labworx, NorCal Putters or Golf Garage.

.

Being as it appears you've gone through a few putters, buying and selling faster than a high school boy switching girlfriends, I'm curious why you'd even consider yourself a candidate for one of the high-rent putters?

I mean I get it, you want to treat yourself - but at the rate you go through putters it just sounds like a huge waste of money, instead of a little waste of money as is your past/current habit.

 

Now I'll admit that I'm a bit anti-SC, purely because their popularity grew out of Tiger's success - and then it turned into a weird status symbol sort of obsession with many, including headcovers that also cost too much.

 

As others have mentioned here, if you're going to spend that kind of money at least do yourself the favor and get properly fit for whatever brand you decide on. Otherwise you more than likely will find yourself disappointed with your purchase and you'll ditch it to for another flavor-of-the-week.

 

Good luck in your search.

 

 

I really had to intentions of buying a Scotty Cameron for the head cover , haha!! I was going to buy an expensive putter so I won't sell it. But I figured I'm not splurging yet I'll wait some years I'm buying a Cure very nice and affordable

Get fit for an Evnroll or a ketsch maybe, then send it off to one of the good custom shops- you'll have a 1-of-1...
