The local shop has close to 100 used putters. Last season,  I tried 30 different ones on their indoor putting green and I found a nice "almost new looking" odyssey 2 Ball viper that I liked for under 100.  I was happy with that and it has helped my putting.

Neat, I assume you don't putt with the ball in there?

Both of my main putters cost about $150.  I bought the first one because although I liked it slightly less, it was $150 and the other was $300.  A year later found the second putter on sale for $150.  Dying for a 3rd putter and willing to spend top dollar this time, just can't decide which one I want and if I'm going to spend top dollar I want it to be the last putter.

Just curious, why do you need a 3rd putter?

One is a blade and one is a mid mallet. They are similar but also different enough that I occasionally swap them out as I think it is good to re-establish feel every so often.  I'd like to have a full mallet to complement the other too.  Plus as I mentioned in another thread if there's anywhere that technology is helping make putters better it's in mallets.

I also have 3 putters. GEL diamond, Yes! Stephanie belly and my current gamer a Clevelland Smartsquare blade. All really nice putters but cant bring myself to get rid of the GEL or the Yes!

Keeping the belly as i'll either get it modified or keep it at 43" for when i can no longer bend as far to putt :-(

“How much should you pay?” questions tend to select responses. How much should you pay for a car? Obviously the guy who paid over a million for his McLaren doesn’t think everyone should; that’s the whole point of having one. Likewise, the guys with the $2k custom Scottys want something exclusive.

 

So it makes sense that most of the responses are $300 or less. If you just want to make putts, and know basically what you need in terms of length and style (mallet, blade, etc.), I don’t think you need to spend more than $100 on ebay. I’ve sold several perfectly serviceable and respectably branded putters for less.

 

Personally, I paid $350 for my Evnroll ER5, which I love. I like it so much that I’m going to spend even more for the black one when it becomes available. It was a subtle difference between the ER5 and my Ping Tyne ($189, I think), that it replaced. But given a choice, I’d choose the Evnroll every time. I can’t afford — and have no desire — to run with the big dogs when it comes to putters. And if I couldn’t afford a $350 putter, I think I’d do ok with any of the ones that I sold. But it’s a hobby, and it could be worse. I could be collecting large stationary engines.

    • If the flag had been improperly replaced by the group in front of him, or perhaps even left out and the flag actually assisted in the ball going in would you have NOT counted it? "Assholes in front of me left the flag out... I'm not counting it... bah humbug."  If a putt is rolling toward the edge of the hole and the hole is slightly damaged on that end and the damage helps the ball fall in, do you not count that? If you clearly miss a putt and it hits a spike mark and goes in anyway, do you not count that?  We've all had bad luck when playing golf; a ball that looks destined for the green hits a sprinkler head and bounces over the green into the trap, a putt heading for the heart of the hole hits somebody's sunflower seed husk and is diverted and misses, a beautifully struck tee shot that just catches that one twig and all of a sudden turns into a disaster. It happens. The OP can relish in the fact that he hit a great shot. But he asked the question (I think very wisely) and it looks like its not a hole in one. If you are going to CHANGE OR IGNORE the rules for this instance, are you also going to CHANGE OR IGNORE the rules when the outcome favors you as well?  I recently (while playing for an amount of money that mattered) skulled my gap wedge and it flew over the green heading for out of bounds, but it hit one of the white OB stakes and ricocheted back toward me and on to the edge of the green. I was happy to take that bit of luck. It would be wrong of me then to only accept the good luck and not deal with the bad luck. Should we change or ignore the rules and put my ball out of bounds, after all it was a terrible shot? Hitting a terrible shot and getting lucky is no different then hitting a great shot and getting unlucky. We should not change or ignore the rules in either case.   … I mean, really when it all comes down to it, isn't that kind of the point of golf? 
    • Understanding you have a problem is the first step in recovery. Have you contacted GA? Golfaholics Annonymus?
    • It can feel normal because we are used to it, but it never feels natural to me either.
    • Well it is not that easy. She has a legit gripe. I have seven full sets off Hogans and may be 26 loose Hogan irons. However the real problem is that I have an additional six hundred golf clubs and 30 old golf bags that also live in the basement. My addiction to collecting clubs over the years has caught up to me and is affecting her laundry process. And I don't want to be assigned those duties. Cutting down the herd is the way to go
    • 5am wake-up, shower, get ready for hour-long drive to the season's first 7am tee time with buddies I haven't seen in months...walk outside to 15 degree windchill and half an inch of snow.
