Heavy Putter

Is this a decent putter?
I was thinking of adding a heavy putter to my bag, just wanted to see if anyone here uses one currently or has used one and what their views on it were. What are the pros and cons of this putter. I tried the mallet version yesterday and it felt nice, but of course, that was inside the store on a practice green, not on the course. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

I've owned the a 3m blade model for about two months,and it is the best putter i have ever used.Speed control is extremely easy imop,and it really rolls the ball very smoothly.I have made a bunch of putts in the 10-25 foot range,and it really shines inside of five feet.The concept of taking out the smaller muscles of your hands,and using only a pendulum shoulder motion is absolutely money. :yahoo: :yahoo:

Twist my leg why don't you. LOL :yahoo: :yahoo: :bad: EBAY here I come. Now I have to choose blade or Mallet. HMM. The mallet would have to weigh more right? I just loved the FEEL of this putter yesterday. Felt like it was really easy to keep on line. Putter felt like it kinda putted itself all you had to do was line it up.

According to the rep that I talked to, the weight of all the Heavys is the same (stock). After you get it you can modify with the weight kit. I have an A2 on the way. Like someone said earlier, I've been much more comfortable lately over a longer putt than a shorter one. I was canning everything in the store with the A2, but you know how that goes. Hope it holds up on the course!

Well, I took the plunge and traded in one of my Camerons for a new Heavy Putter Model A3-M. I took it to the range to try on the putting green and it just feels amazing. I feel like I have a ton more control of the putter now. I think that this putter will be staying in my bag. I had no problem with anything out to 15 feet. It just makes you feel confidant at address, and it seemed almost impossible to leave short. My first couple though were about 15 feet past the hole. Took me about 7 balls to get used to it. Thanks for the advice guys. Here's the one I bought.

Before buying this putter my nickname was Yippy. I weighed down an Odyssey 2 Baller with enough lead tape to kill a rhino. All I ever needed was a heavy putter. Anything inside 4 feet is dropping now, and buttery long on lag putts. Once you get the feel (about a month or so for me) you will never want a standard weight putter again.

I had a putter fitting down here in va at westfields.The only adjustment made was bending it a bit flat,as most od my misses tended to be left.Just luv the consistency of the roll!!!! :cheesy:

And another great thing is that it is sooo heavy ,it is a great warm up club to loosen the muscles,swinging it around in circles to loosen up the shoulders :cheesy:

I am thinking about switching to one also. For the interim I decided to spend $20 on a heavy Aserta IVM and actually did very well with it the first time out yesterday. So what was going to be a warm up before taking the $200 plunge for the Heavy Putter might wind up saving me some money as well as strokes. Even if I do not stick with this Aserta I really think heavier is better.

After reading the positive comments above I dragged my old heavy putter out of the basement. I had trouble with it last fall and put it in retirement. I took the two weights out of putter which made it about 15% lighter. Without the screw in weights it works perfectly. 3 times out now and I've never putted so good. Above contributors....thanks for taking the time to comment on your experience with the heavy putter.

I have used the odessey tri-hot for some time and just loved it because of the weight. I had seen the advertisements on the heavy putter and thought it was just another gimick but since I like a heavy putter i wanted to try one out.

 

golfsmith here had a demo day and i fell in love with the putter, me and my son both ordered one. It was supose to arrive today but so far no news. I am sure anxious for it to arrive. time will tell.
