    From time to time I pull out the Yes Sophia regripped with a Lamkin Crossline Paddle, great on fast greens!

    I like the BB2 the best because of the heavier weight and the 1/2 shaft offset. I have 3 in lefthanded that I rotate depending on the day. I have one in DASS, one in carbon, and one with the copper insert.

    Ben Sayer JN1 forged blade, a line produced after Jack Nicklaus reputedly picked up one in a pro shop in Scotland and won with it. Classic 1930s type design and very soft face that rusted enough to hold the ball just a little longer. perfect.

    Had one for years but it was like all of a sudden I woke up one day and forgot how to putt with a heel-shafted putter.

    I still have not remembered. image/WTF.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':WTF:' /> Really struggle with alignment when I have a heel-shafted putter in the bag. Too bad because I love the way these old style putters look.

    Looks like players still want to talk about their blade putters even though it is 2008! Nothing grooves your stroke better.

    I sold a cleveland designed by 1905 on eBay not long ago. A very, very cool putter. Felt great, but I read an article in Golf Digest (the one with Zach Johnson on the cover) and it said for a straight back straight thru stroke you need a center shafted putter. But 8802 styles have always appealed to me.



    Oh yeah, and they were selling them at Golfsmith for $50.00. If I remember correctly, they were originally like $200.00.

    A lot of folks are all over the Bimini but the lack of sight line makes it a completely cerebral flat stick.

    I have owned several classic blade putters from a Wilson Designed by Arnold Palmer and original 8813. The DBAP was ground down a bit by the original owner thus a little light. I have owned several Cleveland blades and reproduction Wilson blades. I would have to say that my favorite blade I have owned was a Cameron American Classic VII. This putter has great feel and decent weight (350g - 355g would have been great). The biggest problem with the putter is my inability to maintain a good stroke with this type of putter (my problem, not the putter style).
