Help! Making a Final Putter Call


Recommended Posts

Because why not ask the internet 🙂 !

Looking at either the Cleveland HB Soft Premiere 11s or the Minuzo MCraft V. But match my specs with a heavier toe-hang putter. Cleveland offers the SOFT face tech while Mizuno offers the weight kit to dial in and adjust over time. I would give the very slight nod to feel to the Mizuno but splitting hairs. I think both look sharp, maybe pick the Mizuno if you put a gun to my head but could happily game either in the looks department. The Mizuno runs $120 more. (If Cleveland's custom shop was open and I could get my daughter's nickname stamped on the back that would be the tiebreaker.)

Anyone with thoughts or insight into which way I should go? I'm one that tends to pick a club and stick with it so looking at a likely ten year horizon. Thanks in advance to helping push me off the fence!

 

Swing away!

I personally would ignore toe hang and focus on which one you can start online and control distance. I could give you different weight putters with the same toe hang and they would perform differently.

I guess I meant to say both fit me well in terms of being able to put the ball online and distance. I haven't been able to note any substantial differences there. In theory the SOFT face tech will help with distance control but I haven't really seen it yet during playing with them at the store.

If they are equal with regard to performance it becomes personal opinion

Or a monetary one.  And if money is no object, buy the cheaper one and send the $120 you saved to me!

I would recommend the milled face Mizuno if you want the feedback from the putter head. 

If you prefer the soft insert feel then it is a personal preference. The soft insert masks mishits more than a solid face. 

I would not say distance control is better with the softer face because it is hard to feel the impact as much. Swing consistency is more important than face material for distance control. I would ask what about the Cleveland makes it easier for you to control the distance like weight, shaft, or loft?

Golf is simple - people are complicated.
