What putter did you just buy ?

Recommended Posts

Big change for me. Want to give a full mallet a serious try after always playing wide blades, No 9s, Rossies, V-lines and half-moon shapes. Took my time, rolled putters for weeks, did a fitting. It takes time to get used to them. I liked several, including the Odyssey 10, Bird of Prey, TM Spiders and the Cure RX3. Looked at armlock styles too. Ultimately, a left arm dominant stroke with the claw grip on a 34 inch putter fits me well. (I write and play tennis left handed, but throw and play golf right handed and am left-eye dominant.) I am going with this Bobby Grace F18 Smartfit with his “crossbow” shaft.


A couple of features I like about this mallet that combined make it unique. It has a nice tri-sole, which is great on a mallet if you are putting from off the green (this putter is perfect for Bandon!) And I like that the shaft enters the head just shy of center — not right on it — and is slightly onset instead of being right on the topline. Nice clear look at the silver topline. The near-center shaft gives it such a nice balance. And as you can tell from my finalists, I like inserts. Just so easy to roll the ball with the radial face on this putter. Chasing birdies.

It's not gonna win any beauty contests but this thing will roll putts.

 

What insert did you go with? I know Bobby is starting to offer a few depending on the putter.

Yes, he offers aluminum I know and maybe another. I went with the HSM2 insert in tour firm. It feels nice. I used an 18Blade years ago with his original insert that is softer. This one is better IMO, especially for balls these days. (I play the Snell MTB-X). The face gets it rolling immediately. My putting from 15 feet and in last year was disappointing — always 2 putting. Gettin’ old I guess. I was reading putts well and then not hitting my line. It’s irritating. If I roll a solid putt and miss, so be it. Hit my lines and I’ll make my share. As you said, Bobby makes tools for the trade and they work. I’ve got a 13 foot WellPutt mat here at the house and am using that to get used to the claw. The markings on the WellPutt are very helpful.

Too many...all in the last 30 days

 

- Scotty Studio Stainless NP2 in 9/10 Condition

- Evenroll ER2B- Loving it.

- Scotty Special Select NP2.5

- Scotty PP NP2 Trisole

- Scotty TeI3 Santa Fe II- Major project

- Scotty PP Laguna Midslant

 

Most of these were local sellers and the putters need refinishing. The Studio Stainless, ER2B and Special Select are flawless.

 

Clearly I have a problem.

That's how a Circle T should look, simple and meant to be gamed. I hate the bedazzled ones, hope this one treats you well.

IMO, this is the nicest NP style CT, I've seen. So dam clean! I've been contemplating removing the paint off my scotties, to try and get this type of clean look.

I'm sure you can probably move that for a nice 009 seems like a lot out there unless you want a specific one. The T2's are much nicer than the TT so could find a trade pretty easy I bet.

I tried everything to mallets to blades plumbers neck, face balance, flow neck, axis-1,arm lock, and wrist lock. I

finally found the putter that I liked! I always thought Del Mar putter with maximum toe flow we’re old style and never even tried them. When I am putting I feel I am always fighting something but this putter it feels so natural.

Clearly I have a problem.

The studio stainless is one of the best lines that Scotty has released to the public, just got one for christmas, and that thing is butter out of the middle, but not mushy feeling. Perfect feel, good feedback when you miss the center.

Just picked up an old Odyssey Rossie 2 putter from eBay for the huge sum of $16.00. Got rid of the oversize Tiger Shark grip and replaced it with a smaller Golf Pride grip. Right now I'm only able to putt in my living room, but so far I'm very impressed. From close in it practically putts itself! Can't wait to try it once spring comes.
