I have just put my 004 model on ebay.  It is a good looking club and feels great but I found it hard to judge distance and wasn't making any putts with it.  My last round I switched back to my red x and it felt so natural, I made some putts with it too.  After that round I knew the method just wasn't for me.  I think part of the reason it didn't work was due to the blade style head, I need a longer alignment line like you get on a mallet to help me line up correctly.

I had a Nike Method 004 but I found that I prefer a two-ball putter so I put the Method on ebay.

I have Method model 005. I absolutely love it!!! Best putter ive ever used. And that's coming from a Scotty Cameron guy… Well, former Scotty Cameron guy… Haha. The feel is awesome! The distance control is very manageable. And all the tech and the forward roll, etc… is no lie. There's no skip or jump off the face. I will agree with a statement above that it is difficult to aim sometimes. But I find a lot of putters on the market difficult to aim.

I do not think that the new Nike Method is as good as the previous ones. There is an obvious price difference between them, but when I tried the new one I did not like it.

I own the 001 in 33" and love it. I like it over the Scotty Cameron's that I have tried. I am thinking about adding a sight line.

I have the Method 001 and I love it.  I feel very confident with it, and it is easy to handle imho.   It also looks great.

I have the 002 at 33" and find it to be everything my SC is with a quicker roll. Easy to align & good distance control with a very smooth roll. I will rotate with my SC Fastback 1.5 this year, but the 002 will be the starter.

... Have had many putters {SeeMore, Scotty, and more} - Tried the Nike Method 005 [ small mallet with the "expensive" insert, not the plastic one] - this putter is phenominal.  It immediately encouraged a smoother stroke - really got all the putts in or close - sticker was $299 - seen it for $249 - got it on eBay  [new] for less and very happy.  Good stroking..Tomm

After trying nearly every putter in the market my obvious choice based on feel was the nike method. And i knew that at setup :)

The Scotty compared to the Nike felt clicky to me. With putters its a personal feel that counts and I had that from the get go with nike method 001. Even before hitting a ball with it I felt so good in the hands at setup. And now after so many rounds with it I feel its going to be with me forever:)

The combination of Nike method and Titleist proV1 is hard to beat.

I replaced my Scotty Cameron Platinum Pro with a 34 inch Method blade.  Love it.  Rolls very nicely, balanced well.

I almost bought a Method but found the feel of it to be too clicky for me.

I tried about ten putters at my local store, Cameron's, pings, etc...method for me was more accurate in distance and lines, just matched me I guess, just out of my price range. I still use a chipshot.com brass blade I got for free during the dot com boom :p

The Method 001 has been the only putter I've liked more than my SC Newport.  I put it in my bag about a year ago along with a new set of irons.  For me, it's the easiest putter I've ever used in terms of distance control.  The alignment dot has taken some getting used to but, for me, distance control has always been my main issue.  I can't say that I hole any more putts than I used to outside of 10 feet, but I have dramtically lowered my 3 putts per round  overall putts per round.

As a side note...the Nike360 app and website are amazing.  You've got to check it out.

    • Final chapter - mystery solved......and boy am I a "dufus".......like "DUH".... The hosel adapter for Tour Edge Exotics has a short 1.75 inch sleeve that slips over the attachment screw to hold the screw straight (and prevent cross threading I presume).  Somehow when the shaft was removed, the sleeve had slid up into the shaft, hidden from view. The shaft (with hidden sleeve) was then installed into another standard head and during installation, had gotten loose and was free to slide up and down the shaft. When I bonded the shaft to the head, I had given it a small tap on the grip end to seat the shaft which is recommended practice by some fitters. This action would have presumably forced the sleeve up in the shaft and due to larger diameter of the shaft, was free to slide. I don't feel too bad however, as I had made a telephone call to a local fitter, and he was dumfounded as well. 
    • I think a qualified fitter should be able to provide that info! Of course, I have to allow for the fact that, like a medical diagnosis, @Spring1 is simply looking for a second opinion, albeit from complete and total strangers who have never seen him swing a club. Look, @Spring1, I'm not trying to be rude here, nor is anyone else. It's just that your question confuses us a bit. And don't let this "grilling" scare you away. We're honestly curious and would like to help. FWIW, graphite shafts are lighter than steel. So, if you stick the same length graphite into a formerly steel shafted iron, it's going to monkey with the swingweight. It will make it lighter! To compensate, most manufacturers will make the graphite shafted clubs slightly longer to get the swingweight back up. The question is whether or not you can hit those longer irons as accurately as the originals. You should be allowed to hit both models and make a decision from that. And, I notice that you're a 39, and you mentioned the Ping brand in particular. So, I'm guessing this was a "golf store" fitting, and not a "custom clubmaker" fitting. Then another possibility presents itself. Maybe @Spring1 is wondering whether the store "fitter" is trying to upsell him into something more expensive, or something they need to move! All that matters is performance. Do the clubs work for you? And, of course, I could be entirely wrong about everything I've typed above and made a complete fool of myself! But then, I (and we) could use a bit more info.
    • Saw something intresting during my round the other day.my home club here in new zealand has a pretty relaxed dress code.and I was in my normal sort of outfit for a warm day.plain shorts,and a plain blue Nike t-shirt with no graphics or logos on it.no knee length white socks thou lol.and saw a visitor to our club dressed in golf pants and a polo. But his polo had a big skull and crossbones on it with the skull smoking.just playing devils advocate here,but it would be intresting to see what happened if he turned up at the only course in our area that stipulates a collar.ild argue that a plain t-shirt looks a lot better.(all thou as i said in the original post i always stick a polo on when i play at that club)
    • He's still young too thou,is it a case of just needing to mature a bit.and get a bit more experience.(how old is he exactly i know his early 20s?) I know he's not the same type of players but i seem to remember sergio garcia having a lot of blow up holes when he was younger,and losing his temper a lot more over it.and he seems to have matured into a much more composed player these days. That said ild take Jordan's game over mine in a heartbeat 
    • Could be the greens you play.  There is one course I play ocassionally that has greens that are not too fast but are hard.  It's hard to make a ball mark, it's hard to stop the ball.  You have to try to adjust to the roll.
