sad that LAB Golf didn't provide one but i understand with the lie angles that the results would be skewed with only one putter.

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.

 

 

can't stand the triple track but the new ten two ball design has caught my eye. Might need to roll a few to see if the results testors saw turn out the same for me and my stroke.

Same exact thoughts here.  Don't like the TT on balls or the putter.  But there is no denying it works for "some"   I went to a Callaway Education day two years ago for dealers.  The rep couldn't wait to show me how far off align I was.   They had you take your set up at a hole about 10 feet away, then told you to stay still, while they attached a laser to the center of the putter head.   They expected it to show you were aimed outside the hole.  Mine showed I was dead center of the cup.   He kind of shrugged like he didn't know what to say...ha

I think we're all kind of hinting at a similar sentiment...feel and how well you like the look probably matter more with a putter than any other club in the bag.  I have great confidence in MGS Most Wanted tests, but right or wrong at the end of the day you could show me data that shows a putter is working best for me...if it doesn't pass the eye test I'm probably not going to buy it regardless. 

Triple Track is off-putting to me, and so is the 2 ball.

I personally disliked the new ping insert.  Kind of reminded me of a rubbery insert that felt dead at impact.    I prefer putters that have a click at impact.

Daryl survey.

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

Can we classify the B61 as a mini mallet? 🙂

Haven't done a deep dive into the article yet but sure looked like a lot of the Spider copies in the top grouping...

2 ball isn’t a spider copy. But
You are correct, many of the putters in the test would be like a #7 or spider. This is simply just where the market is with mallet putters. Going through the putters as part of the testing the same concepts definitely carry over.

I would say no. [emoji16]

Nice to see I’m not the only guy around here who prefers to line up seeing just a white golf ball. 
 

I passed my PAT on my first attempt with a DFX 2 Ball and I would love to give it another shot. I liked it when I played around with one on Friday at my local shop. Who knows, maybe my impulses will get the best of me...

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. 

I agree the look of the 2 blank balls doesn’t work for me. I much preferred the way the triple track broke up the the “blank canvas” of the traditional 2 ball design even more so than the the single line. I’m really leaning towards the 2 Ball Ten Triple Track. It just felt amazing to me and it’s aesthetics were more pleasing. It also didn’t hurt that I was putting well with it. Granted it was a indoors at a store but I was able to putt to a PuttOut and while it didn’t hold every time they were “made” putts. 😜

Thats the nest thing about golf, something so drastically different—Triple Track vs No markings on the two ball—can be viewed so differently by players.   
 

I’m firmly in the camp of not liking the TT visual, but as I mentioned esrlier, i can’t dispute it’s effectiveness for some, that I have watched putt with it.

Definitely not a fan either. I find them distracting.

I'm usually not a big fan of mallets but I bought the Ten S with the single line and initial results are it may be a game changer. Easiest putter to line up I've ever seen.

I've been using CS putters most of my life, and finally pulled the trigger on the Odyssey Stroke Lab CS V line, 35" with the pistol grip. To my eyes it's as ez as it gets to line up, and the insert is like butter. Putting has always been the strongest part of my game, however I can only see it getting better with this club.

I am always trying different mallets but always coming back to the same style of putter. I used the Ping Nome TR for years now I am using a Ping Ketsch. The only other putter that has come close is the 2 ball but not a huge fan of inserts. I think my eye just likes a more rounded mallet with alignment features on top and right up to the ball.  
 

that being said I always read the articles and always want to try the latest and greatest. They just don’t always work for me.

I still have the original Ping Ketsch. The one Ping had to stop making due to patent infringement with Guerin Rife. Something with the grooves.
