Re: Blade vs Mallet PuttersI have been using a blade-style putter for over a season (sig line). I like its looks (how it sets up eye-wise). However, I have been having some stuggles with putting a consistent movement into it - the head is a bit light, and I have been manufacturing speed vs. allowing the head to generate its own speed.
I have tried other putters both on the course and in a few pro shops, and the mallet style feels better from a head weight perspective. As I practice to groove a more consistent putting stroke, the mallet may become my new style (I like the Odyssey line, so the Tour brand mallet (like the #9) maybe the next new toy purchased).
It took over a season of trial and error - my suggestion is to demo as many brands and styles that you can to find the right flatstick for you.
