Actually most of the Camerons are not. I believe the Fastback and Squareback are.

Most brands offer a face balanced model.

Odyssey: White Hot Rossie, #5; Black #3,

Ping: Redwood Piper; (there are two other Pipers - one is balanced the other is not (weird) but I don't remember which...

Most of the giant head mallets are face balanced (Odyssey 2-ball, Ping Craz-E etc...)

Best deal going for a milled putter - look for closeouts on the Mizuno Bettinardi C-series line. <$100 here: (35" is all that is left)

Not trying to be a wiseacre...but got to the store....hold up any putter and balance the shaft over your index finger.


It will become imediately evident whether or not it's face balanced. You'll also have time to demo the wand.


Good luck. Finding a putter that fits is huge!!!!!!!

Hey tjy355, is BudgetGolf legit? I am interested in purchasing a putter from them, but I don't want to buy a fake.

Re: Face-balanced putter

Rife putters are face balanced and offer a decent selction of styles.

I've just started using a Rife Antigua Island Series putter. It is Anser style but obviously face balanced. It is taking some getting used too as I've not played a face balanced putter before. That said, I do like the feel and the ball seems to roll very smoothly when struck well - whether this has anything to do with the grooved face I don't know but I would certainly recommend putting a Rife in your hands for a test run.

Zebra mallet is.

As others have said, most Scotty's are not.

Re: Face-balanced putter

Center shafted putters tend to be face balanced. If you have a straight-back-and-through putting stroke, face balanced makes more sense. Closure rates on face balanced putter are lower, so they suit straighter putting strokes better.

PING KARSTEN C67 is center shafted and faced balanced.
if you dont know already, read some of the internet reviews on the Karsten series putters. I play a B60 and love it, but may switch to the C67 since my swing is more straight back straight through...

at $89, its worth a shot.

I am using the Odyssey 2-ball center-shafted - amazing face balanced putter. It's like cheating
