Haven't tried these but that blue finish is mesmerizing. I wish I had seen it before I bought my Huntington Beach putter.

That is my dilemma. The HB putter which has great reviews and $200 less or the Mizuno?

I dont love the $300 price tag.  IMO, no putter is worth that kind of money.

I have a blue MCraft I and White Satin MCraft II. 

Two of the best feeling putters I've ever rolled. 

And at $299 for a forged/milled putter with a full weight kit, you cannot beat the price

$150 more expensive than they should be though.  Mizuno doesnt have the cache or brand image in putters that Scotty does.  Some would say that Scotty is all brand image and status though. 

I do agree that they look like great putters and as someone who has used both the old Mizuno MP putters and the previous MP Craft ones that werent available in the states, Im just happy to see Mizuno get back into the putter game.

Old me, who was a diehard Mizuno fanboy, would have been all over these putters and would be geeking out over the fact that Mizuno is finally offering balls and putters in the US.  Now we just need golf shoes.

Pretty standard price for most milled putters. While the putters don’t have the Cameron credibility, they do carry a well known name. I’d say it is a more realistic price than the TA milled putters; while nice, I don’t think a dicks sorting goods line demands that kind of price tag

 

Muzuno has shoes; I am currently using Mizuno shoes as my primary golf shoe

Wow did not realize you get a full weight kit as well.  I like that they are doing that so you can dial it in.  Also, dependent on time of year you play, you may want to tinker with lighter to heavier weights for green conditions and how fast they are playing.

 

Well no left handed options so no chance I can play this.

Awesome, thanks for the insight @jlukes. I did not realize it came with a full weight kit either.

The one thing I really like about the Mizuno putters is the sound of the ball coming off the blade. I hate a loud "Click" off the blade. The softer the sound the better I like it. These putters have a great sound/feel to them! Plus getting the weight kit really make the price easer to handle.  The blue looks great but I settled on the black.

Honestly, I would buy the HB and spend the savings on customizing the length, lie, and grip so you can have a perfectly fit putter. When I competed I would play with more expensive putters but now I rather just buy a putter that has a great feel and doesn't cause sticker shock.

Caught Rick Sheils review.  Looked awesome. I play an odyssey and have for years.  That review showed the M Craft to be quality. But... he holed more test outs with an odyssey. Interesting. I was super excited to see Mizuno making their own. No farming it out.  Same steel and quality metal as the irons.  Should feel ah-mazing!!

I grabbed the type II in blue and love it. Better fit for my stroke and feels great coming off the putter. Currently have the 3 gram weights in and have been rolling it well

I really a want to try these! They look awesome and I keep hearing how good the feel is. 

I bought on of the KS1 Putters from Kirkland 🙂 ... So I will see how that one rolls. But I also really love the Spyder X’s.

Mizuno M Craft II has been in the bag for my last 3 rounds and it's staying there for the foreseeable future. 

I'd been gaming my beloved Evnroll ER2 for the last 2+ seasons, but after spending a ton of time working on my putting green in the basement during the off-season, I realized that while putting was a strength for me, I seemed to be he missing something: touch. 

My ER2 is 370g and the oversize/counterweighted grips I have been gaming were between 100 and 110g. This really helped quiet my hands and wrists, but I realized this off-season that I was really lacking touch to my putting. My putting stroke just began feeling very unnatural with no flow or release, so I knew I needed to get something lighter.

With the M Craft II, I have the 3g weights installed, which bring the head down to 345g and the more traditional Lamkin Deep Etched grip is only around 80g. 

I immediately noticed a smoother flow to my putting stroke - as if the putter was an extension of my body and hands rather than a large tool. The Mizuno head is just a beautiful shape and the feel off the face is just everything I want in a milled putter head. 

The confidence on the course continues to grow and I'm really happy to have made the switch to something that seems to fit my natural "feely" stroke rather than trying to fight it.

FYI, my best putter head weight is 340-345gr. I have quite a few @ 350gr but they are not as “smooth”.
