I can't say I'm surprised.  The original Odyssey Two Ball was in my bag for a couple years when it came out, and some recent demo's with the 10 line, well i just couldn't seem to miss.  I'm not a fan of the Triple Track, but I have personally seen it make a huge difference for some.  But I could easily roll a Ten S with no issues at all.

I use no lines on my ball so triple tack just doesn’t do it for me. I also find odyssey inserts and stroke lab to not work for me. Thankfully that’s why there’s tons of options out there

I know why those two putters finished on top; they were the only mallet putters that i was able to roll well.

Don’t have to have lines on the ball for triple track; just a way to consistently get the putter setup.

Am I the only one that simply cannot get past the looks of the Two Ball?  It and a few other mallet style are just too over-the-top looking to my eye.  A rather dumb criteria perhaps but it is what it is.

Solid showing by Odyssey, but not surprised on a personal level - I still have a White Hot Rossie that comes back into the bag when all my other putters decide to misbehave. 

Stoked to see W/S pick up the Best Value. Kind of odd though to see it 1st from 5, decent from 20, but dreadful from 10?

I think it was you who provided a link to an outfit that tracks players clubs (WITB)?  I'm curious to know what the breakdown is among the tour for putter designs.  I do notice quite a few mallet styles out there.

I'm glad Tony made a comment on the blog about the Tommy Armour #3. Not the same putter as in years past. 

The White Hot OG Line, blades and mallets, is doing well. Maybe one day they'll release the 7S with a solid top line, not the three dots. 

On behalf of the lefties, screw Evnroll! They make a well-performing putter and we can only watch righties putt with it.

If you've never tried one of the Mizuno putters you should.... you hit the ball and then you have this sudden. whoa. that feeling was amazing.

I was similar, but tried the ball in the store and felt for short putts it improved my putting.  I don't like the callaway balls, so I bought a separate marking tool that gives the lines.  Usually inside 10 feet I use the lines and outside that go with my spot and feel.  

I feel like the track could be great, but might start to be too much noise and could have people concentrating too much on line and not enough about pace.

Would love to, but I don't think they have any Lefties available.

Not speaking for JLukes, but I guess I am.    I think the intent of his comment was that, he doesn't use a line on his ball so he's certainly not going to use one on putter head.  Simply meaning he's not a line alignment type guy be it the ball or putter.

As @GolfSpy Barbajo and I discussed a couple weeks ago, at $99 retail, those Buckingham's should fly out of stores.   People just need to get over the damn stigma they have about Wilson Staff.

Daryl survey.

I have seen some unofficial counts and mallets are slightly more popular than blades. 56/44%

Not a fan of full size mallets and like jlukes I don’t use alignment lines. The two ball was never a favorite of mine when I tried mallets was more a #7.

"There’s a case to be made for matching the weight of your putter to the speed of the greens you play most often. On slow greens, heavier putters tend to perform better. On fast greens, a delicate touch is needed. Often a lighter putter will produce better results."

As I posted on the blog, which ones are heavy and which ones are light?  Yes, the SW is posted, but I don't find that as useful to me as overall weight.  Why can't the weights be posted so readers know which is which?   I like a heavier putter.

I also play on more than just my course's greens, so I see a variety of green speeds.  I would never putt use two different putters; one for fast greens and one for slow greens.  I feel that a putter that fits your stroke can be putted well on all green speeds.

I generally putt well on all green speeds (once I get used to them) with my Ping, and I have never cared for Evnroll putters.
