Thinking about buying either the the PXG Gen 2 Gunboat or PXG Mini Gunboat or PXG Bat Attack.

If you have purchased or tried one of these putters, I would really appreciate any feedback you can provide on how they worked for you. Good feel, Distance, weight, alignment etc.

    Well, as you know, putters can be a personal thing for most of us. However, I did test both the Gunboat and the Bat Attack during my fitting. I chose the Bat Attach primarily based on how it helped me align the face to my putting line. The good news is the milled faces on the Gens 2 feel outstanding. So my advice would be to get them in your hand and try them out and see what fits your eye and feel.

    For what its worth, I also picked up the Gen 1 Mustang and think its probably even better (for me) than the Bat.... but the feel Gen 1 feel doesn't compare to the feel of the Gen 2's. The Mustang has similar alignment queues that help me square up the putter face.

    As MattM97 says... probably need to check out the Operator as well.
