Nike Method 001
A minimalist anser head that looks just a little lightweight. The roll is pure and the feel is good.
Nike Method 002
Most similar to a Ping Zing shape, this putter has a simple no-frills look, a good roll, but a high price tag.
Nike Method 003
The Nike Method putter favored by Tiger Woods. A heavily toe-weighted putter with classic looks. Fantastic if you have an open-square-closed stroke.
Nike Method 004
Face balanced version of the Method 001. Favor this putter if you're trying to produce a straight-back-straight through stroke.
Nike Method 005
Face balanced mallet which looks like it's got a good bit of meat behind the head. For our money the best looking in the Method range.
Ping Redwood Anser
The design which has won more pro events than any other, now with top quality materials.
A good looking wide-backed blade which resembles the Major winning TPA putters of the 80s & 90s
A little thin in the top portion of the blade, but otherwise a great looking putter with good blade feel
Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5 Center Shaft
The classic shape, different hosel ... but same awesome feel.
Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Studio Select
The affordable Scotty Cameron.
Scotty American Classic 3 Heavy Flange
A surprising remake of the classic bullseye flange shape. More forgiving and more immediate with feedback than the original
Scotty Cameron American Classic 3
A simply gorgeous reworking of the Bullseye shape. New materials and great Scotty Cameron workmanship make this a beautiful putter to look at. Still not that forgiving, though!
Scotty Cameron Bullseye Platinum Heavy Flange
A Bullseye putter worthy of consideration! The offset neck and flange aren't quite what you'd want if you're a purist looking for a bullseye, but it putts better.
Scotty Cameron Napa California
As you'd imagine from Scotty Cameron, this is a beautiful piece of equipment. Looks, roll, feel - it has it all ... and a price tag to match
Scotty Cameron Studio Select Kombi Mid
A big hulk of a putter - face balanced with a long aimline
A nice re-working of the classic FGP from Seemore. Unfortunately only available with an offset shaft that doesn't make full use of the wonderful riflescope aiming system
TaylorMade Rossa Kia Ma Fortuna
A highly refined mallet from TaylorMade - recommended!
TaylorMade Rossa Kia Ma Daytona
Good looking Anser style putter - Part of TaylorMade's resurgence as a designer of high quality putters
TaylorMade Ghost TM-110
Beautiful square-designed Anser with great aimlines - well worth a look!
TaylorMade Rossa Daytona
Well constructed Anser style putter - excellent if you're after a good putter at a lower cost - gunmetal color looks classy - feels good too!
Wilson 8882 Staff
A dramatic updating of the classic Wilson blade. Tremendous feel and drop dead gorgeous, too
