Cheap, but Good Putter?

41 posts in this topic

So I'm looking around for a new putter to get my dad for Fathers Day.

He has some OLD Spalding blade putter, and he needs a new one. He likes blades.

Are there any putters for <$70 , BLADE putters that is, that are really good? Thanks.

I'll assume you meant <$70
Honestly I don't think you will find any really good
putters for under seventy dollars
Used maybe, but not in the greatest shape

edit: Your best bet might be the Ray Cook Blue Goose Series putter. $60 and someone
compared it to a SC in one of the reviews on TGW

Your best bet is to find a good online store on ebay

You can get a Yes! Blade putter on ebay. I just got mine slightly used for 52 bucks.

The Billy Baroo by Ray Cook Golf is the best!

If you can stretch it to a full 100 bones, the Nike Ignite putter (for me) strokes the ball like it has eyes - I have been playing with them at Dick's and seldom miss on their mat. When I do we are talking less than 4 inches left or right and I rarely go longer than 16 inches past the hole. They feel great to me, on that surface.
Gonna have to actually buy one one of these days.

I've liked the feel of the Maxfli putters

I don't think that's blade enough

You may be able to pull a SC Bullseye on Ebay for pretty close to that price. Used of course.

Or just get some style of the 8802. The best putter of all time in my opinion :)

Ping Karsten Anser. I know its a little over your budget, but $80 is damn good for a putter that is only marginally inferior to my Scotty, which was over $300.

OK, then I nominate the Wilson Augusta for $30.

Are you looking to get your dad a brand new putter as a gift since most of the suggestions here are getting used versions from eBay. If you don't mind getting used then there are tons you can get around your price point, I'd throw in the suggestion for a Taylor Made Monza Corza.

If you want to give a brand new putter, the Wilson Harmonized putter line is a solid equipment and great low price around $30-$40.

Tour Edge putters for $40

Ben Hogan Bettinardi Baby Ben Putter for $40

    • GPS, WHY ?
      You still need a baseline average of your typical distances to go by, and GPS helps you learn your yardages so you know what club to pull in the first place. You "guess" at all of these already. GPS just gives you an accurate starting point to work from. How can you know for sure that you didn't pull the wrong club? This is probably the most important point: distances markers on golf courses aren't always accurate and even if they are, they only give you the distance to the center of the green. They don't tell you how deep or wide the green is, what distance you need to avoid hazards, etc. They also don't help you off the tee, either.
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If you have a cell phone odds are that you already have a gps device. All you need do is download an app, some are free, and you now have a gps for golf
    • GPS, WHY ?
      If knowing the distance isn't important to you, then why would you ever choose an 8 iron for a shot instead of a 7 iron? But, if all the courses you play have plenty of easy to locate distance markers, then you probably don't need to spend a fortune on a range finder. Here's a free one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mozosoft.rangefinder&hl=en
    • GPS, WHY ?
      As of late I have played with a few people using some sort of GPS device, which in turn  made me envious, and I have therefore been looking on the internet with a view to buying one. Then I stopped and thought, WHAT DO I NEED IT FOR. Firstly, I am not a great golfer, and the length I can hit a ball with a club varies a lot based on how well I make contact. Secondly, what if it is windy, what if it is cold, what if it is wet, and finally, what if I am hitting a ball uphill or downhill. All a GPS would help me do is estimate what club I need on a dry day, with no wind, and on a flat plain. Of course, I and can take these factors into account, in which case I would be guessing again, and then I may as well not have one anyway. Like most people, I quite often hit over the green, or leave it short, but to be honest that has more to do with my golfing skills rather than the wrong club. All courses in the UK have distance markers, and to be honest you have to be pretty stupid not to be able to work things out from there.  Needless to say, some of you would have already spent a fortune on such a device, and will reply to this post telling me how wonderful they are. So, please go ahead and convince me !!
