Yes Olivia Putter

are mallet putters negatively labeled?
The Yes Olivia is a mallet styled putter and when I tried it at my local golf store, I fell in love instantly - the weight, the face balanced head, everything. It was so easy to put a good stroke on. The only thing about the putter is I'm not enthused with the bumblebee grip colors.

Anyway, are mallet putters unfashionable? Cause I find them to be effective "easy back, easy through" putter heads.

If you are that excited about the putter, you shouldn't hesitate. I'd be willing to bet that you could get a free grip change from wherever you purchase your putter (pay for the grip), so don't let the grip selection stop you! Whether or not mallets have or not en vougue right now should only be considered if you have a problem with the appearance (and kind of how fickle you are with your putter shopping).

 

The thing with traditional mallets is that they lie in very middle ground. There is a very stong trend toward the traditional putters (as by what people have here in their WITB threads, in pitbull808's Darrell Survey, and on tour) and toward neo-mallets (corzas, mezzas, baby-bees, 2-balls, etc). The middle ground does seem to be fading, but everything is cyclic, so there will be a revival someday. Until that day, there will be the Red X's, Odyssey #5, and of course my Japan Gauge M3+. ;)

Personally, I love mallets or mid-mallets. I don't like anser style. Why? I don't putt as well with them. I don't think there's enough mass behind the ball to allow me to 'swing' the putter. With ansers, it always feels like I'm 'hitting' instead of swinging.

 

If you feel that way, then a mallet is your answer (get it!??! :crazy2: I'll be performing all week...) ;)

if its going to get the ball in the hole with less strokes, then who cares.

 

i fight the dilema a little. i love the look and feel of my scotty newport beach but i putt so much better with my red x and yes olivia. don't get me wrong, i don't think the red x or olivia are ugly, i just like the newport beach more.

I've always liked mallets since I was 8 and played with my dad's old Otey Crisman aluminum headed, leather grip, hickory shafted mallet. I was at the lcoal shop yesterday looking at them. Liked the Victoria 2 from Yes and the Suzuka from TM.

I fell in love with the mid-mallet style after initially seeing the Cameron JAT/Del Mar and playing the White Hot Rossie.

 

Eventually I was able to happen across my Maranello 8-02 because some Local Pro traded it in and I came into the store about 2 days later. The guys at the store (Golf Galaxy) were drueling over it but I ended that!

 

I may at some point get a custom made slighter like it but for now I'm satisfied beyound belief!
