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! :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.

IMO a forgiving blade putter is called a 'mallet'. :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.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
