Putter Shapes

10 posts in this topic

Hello! This thread is more out of curiosity rather than actually needing help but rather just a friendly question. I am wondering what shape of putter that you guys prefer. I know that putting is very personal and I am curious to hear some answers. Personally I like an anser style putter with a wide back but thats just me. Any response is appreciated! Thanks guys!

Well since I sold all of my other putters (all different brands and styles) because this one rolled the ball best, I guess it's my favorite.

This is the Milled Metal-X. I have the regular Metal-X, but its the exact same shape.

This is a very interesting article from Grantland

Anyone who wants to talk about that article, go to this link. There is already a Thread for it.

I prefer the shape that lets me line up the putter accurately.

It's different for everyone, and almost nobody lines their putter up where they think they're lining it up.

Anser style with a line on the base, not top.  I can line mine up very accurately after it was adjusted when I had my fitting.

Blade with an offset shaft. I've tried almost every shape out there, and a blade is what works best for me..

I have a Ghost Spider S - funny looking, but I LIKE it

Mallet with a Slant shaft - attach point is edge, not center

Big fat grip (other thread, but my preference)

Mallet vs regular - I don't get much difference in feel.  I like mallets just because of the real estate allowed bigger alignment features

Tried both offset and slant shafts - better/noticable results with slant.  I liked the bent shaft look better, but it wasn't for me.

This is the FIRST putter I've ever had that actually points where my eyes is telling me it's pointed.  I've always had to 'correct' for offset or pick a close point to putt over.  Maybe I'm fooling myself, but it certainly is better by far.  Really helps the confidence.

As my technique improves and I've found a grip that works for me, I'm finding it easier to use other putters and still get good results.
