The redwood series putters are very nice. I also like the i-series piper.

G5i Craze-E ...w/ Anser hosel, 33", bent 4* flat, Winn midsize or jumbo (not sure which) putter grip to bring the swing weight down a touch and take some wrist action out of the stroke.

Not sure the exact name, but it would be a sin for me not to go with the original Anser.

I have a pretty old Anser 2 that I really used to like. I never use it anymore.
I wish they'd have made a huge Redwood line like they did the G2 line. I love the look of several of the G2 putters.
1.G2 Tess (heel shafted blade 332 gram head)
2.G2 MiniC (Center shafted face balanced wide flange 350 gram head)
3.G2 C67 (Center shafted heel-toe balanced 349 gram head)

I like the G5i Craze-E. It just looks pretty sweet, but I'm not exactly fond of Ping putters.

The tess model is my favorite. I think it just looks amazing.

I'd have to go with the one I carry in my bag. But to be honest I don't have any experience with other types of Pings. I did briefly own and game a new (well slightly used) Karsten Series Anser, but after about a month I traded it in with a few other clubs for my current driver. Frankly I was more comfortable and happier with my old putter (sound, look, feel), but the new one worked just fine.

I have the Craz-E "I series" and I absolutely love it. It is very heavy and resembles the twoball. After trying a bunch at the proshop I ended up choosing this one

I've only tried the one, but my mate has an Anser 2 (not sure if this is the exact model) and it is a beauty- perfectly weighted and with no bounce. Whenever I'm lining up with the thing I have alot more confidence than I do with my existing flatstick (a $30 bargain bin no-namer). I'm aiming to pick up an Anser 2 of my own (or a Scotty Cameron should I win the lottery).

Over the years I've had a few PING putters:
  • Zing
    B60
    GoWin5


The putter I've been wanting to try lately is the new IWI Craz-E model. The weight adjustment feature is pretty cool.

That is one feature on my YES Olivia that I love. I put an oversized grip on it that was way heavier than the stock grip....adjusting the head weight really helped compensate.

B60 BeCu is in my bag.

+1 for the B60 BeCu ... that was in my bag till it somehow managed to crawl out and get away while I was in the clubhouse having a sandwich and beer one day

That is rough. Too bad you didn't get it back.

I have had an Answer 4 for a few years... not much experience with any others.

The golf shop I frequent has had a left-handed 34-inch G5i Tess in stock for at least a year. No one has bought it, and the price has never been marked down. I'm hoping the latter happens before the former.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration. 
    • Putting downhill vs uphill (2x distance of downhill length) poll
      Yep.  The first hole at TPC looks like they buried an elephant.  I lost a playing partner on that green. The course in the above posts I believe is The Bayou Club.  Checking tonight.  Not sure the hole number yet, but the green is next to the road.  If that's the course, I'll work out the hole number.  Their scorecards don't show hole layout, so I'll have to walk through the holes on the card. BTW, there is (or was) a hole at the Corry Pa muni (North Hills) that could have a 225 foot putt.  That's over 70 yards!  They don't make like that any more! Plus, the Links of Lake Bernadette has a shared green.  Haven't played there in a while, but as I recall the green was "U" shaped with bushes in the "U".  Had to putt to the bottom of the "U", then back on the other side.  Need to Google that later. St Andrews has shared greens but I don't recall any being like that.
