Mizuno M Craft Putters

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. 

 

 

I think putters are getting way too heavy and that that 340-350gr weight  is really ideal.

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.

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.

BTW, I love the Mizuno putters! They are beautiful and balance is incredible!

Agree! A guy I play with has a Heavy Putter and the shaft is solid! It feels like a freakin sledgehammer and he keeps asking why he’s a missing putts, DUHH. He’ll spend $500 in a driver every year but won’t spend any money on a new putter. He’s a prime candidate for the Mizuno.

I love my Mizuno JDM Putter, the MP-A306. I tried all three of the M Craft and they are all excellent. The feel is what you would expect from a Mizuno and I found it relatively easy to line up my putts with them. I wish I could have tinkered with the weights some, guess I'll have to buy one eventually. I'm trying a few year old Ping putter out right now but probably putting the Mizuno back in the bag soon.
