Sai-Jin,

I hope those are true blades (8802/ironmaster styles) and not the Anser/Newport/BB1-8s that people started calling "blades" about 4-5 years ago.

 

Plumber's necks and cavities do not make blades.

Really???? Why in the WORLD would they be testing those worthless putters??? That'd be like testing blade irons, balata golf balls, and metal spiked etonic shoes. Lighten up Francis and get off that soapbox.

I have no problem if they want to test Anser/Newports, etc just don't call them blades.

 

Well of course TM calls their irons RocketBladez so I guess we can call anything we want.

 

Yes I am on a soapbox because this is exactly how golf history gets forgotten. Nothing wrong with calling the Anser something other than a blade.

Please tell me that Exotics is the DG Tour Proto, that thing is just damn sexy ... or do I have to wait?

That's exactly what is in for the test. B)

Please add a Miura KM350 into the list if you can...

That one did not make the list, but I do have a KM-007 in for a stand alone review.

It will be putters that fit the current definition of blade, and I had to clarify this with some companies.

I do get what you are saying about the history though. "Blade" is where it's at right now.

Maybe we do a 8802 test down the road...

It's funny how there's not a ton of 8802 style putters. The main ones I've seen are from Wilson or are really expensive from pricier putter companies such as TP Mills, Never Compromise, Byron Morgan, etc. Although I think the Odyssey Pro Black version was a nice take on it.
