PXG Blackjack Putter fitting with Miguel from Brown Bear Golf. Looking for an updated mallet putter brought us to PXG Headquarters in Scottsdale, AZ. We get to use hogh speed cideo and computer algorithims from Quintic putting lab. The fitter found some ways to curomize rhebputter to help me hitt better putts. We discuss competitors like TaylorMade Spider X and Odyssey Stroke Lab #10. As amazing as the Blackjack putter looks how did it perform?  Is it a hit?  Or is it a stand? Find out with Brown Bear!

I ordered a blackjack with the Plumbers neck and took delivery of it on Thursday. Got to take it for a spin yesterday and it performed well. I was previously hitting a blade style putter so the weight will take some getting used to. I’m happy with it so far.

@BrownBearGolf Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I am curious about PXG's offerings, but there isn't a fitting center near me. So deciding whether or not to try them is a little complicated.

I've been tempted to try some PXG gear since there is a fitting center about an hour away from me. I've always have drawn to this brand and I can't put my finger on it to why I am interested. The Blackjack looks like a copy to the Taylormade Spider Tour Black but looks very interesting with the milled face, but the mustang putter blade looks interesting to me.

Hello!,

That't too bad about there not being any fitting locations.  Sometimes they go to courses to do off site fittings.  Take a look at that.  It's hard to order something sight unseen. I totally get that.

Have you had any concerns with the weight being too much for the stock shaft?  I've been considering upgrading to a BGT or KBS shaft.  The shaft seems to flex slightly on longer lag putts. Don't think it should do that.

I don’t think I’ve ever noticed it flexing. That doesn’t mean it isn’t, just that I’ve never noticed it. Not sure that has ever even crossed my mind on any putter I’ve ever used. 
what you don’t know won’t hurt you?

I did a full bag PXG fitting today and I rolled the BlackJack extremely well! We were on a real putting green and at one point I made 5 10 footers in a row!

I was using the plumbers neck and the upgraded superstroke grip.

I really like the plumbers neck and the all black superstroke grip. Good choices.

I was fitted in ATL in Dec, and decided to go with the Bat Attack Gen2, it was delivered in around seven days. Played with it solid so far this year, only issue I have is it wants to twist clock wise from the weight distribution.  It is a face balanced putter, but that clock wise pull it is a little to much for me, so I have been adjusting the weights in the sole, and have come up with something that works for me.  I will have to see how it goes for the rest of the year, then make a decision for sure.
