is there a forgiving one!
I love the style of the bladed putters like the JAT and phil mickelsons putter but is there one which has a sweetspot bigger then a pea?

This is probably impossible because of the style. Maybe the new xg #9 is gonna be worth a try.

Any suggestions?

    My scotty cameron studio style newport 2.5 blade style that has a German Stainless Steel insert - anywhere on the GSS insert works for me - - if I am outside of the GSS then I made a really really bad swing.

    On the less expensive side - I have an old odyssesy DF550 blade putter that worked well for me. A hit anywhere on the large black insert seems to go well.

    Just two ideas for you.

    A good putting stroke does not really need a very forgiving blade. Personally, I would love a Scotty Cameron American Classic VII or a Circle T Napa finished in 3X Oil Can.

    I have a Cleveland Designed by Ben Crenshaw that I have sent to BOS for chrome stripping and refinish in Oil Can. I am certain it will look tremendous and feel just as good! image/cool.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':help:' />

    Ping made a Sedona putter a couple of years ago that was quite forgiving for a rear-shafted putter. Odyssey also made a White Hot version of the 8802 that was pretty easy to hit well. The main difference is you have to "gate" a rear-shafted putter, which means opening the face on the backswing and closing it on the followthru. If like a straight-back and straight-thru putting stroke, stay with a Ping Anser or some center-shafted putter.

    I sometimes still putt with a '96 Ping Sedona. It was the best looking "8802" style putter I have found. Not as small as an 8802, but with great feel and some forgiveness. They are hard to find, but would be worth your time to check into one.

    IMO a forgiving blade putter is called a 'mallet'. image/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':help:' />

    I can't play blade putters. I have no lag putting capability with them. I feel like I have to smack the ball, not stroke it.

    The Laguna 2.5 Studio Stainless comes to mind. Chunky bumpers. Just a thought.
