Yes Victoria II

The Yes Victoria 2 is a classic D shaped, face-balanced mallet with some nice extra touches. The quality of the finish is a 100% improvement on the previous Victoria model. 

What you'll find looking down at this putter is that the matt black finish on the back of the putter and on the top of the leading edge gives it a classy look and it feels like you're holding a precision tool rather than a second division putter.

I don't generally like the look of Yes putters, but in this case I was extremely surprised. They've done a great job here. The aim-line is particularly clear which makes it super easy to aim. Even if you weren't keen on a D-shaped head before we strongly recommend you take a look at this one.

How does it feel?

Again this was a real surprise. Whereas some of the Yes C Groove putters can be quite hard and pingy, the Victoria 2 gives you an amazing level of feedback. Along with the Yes Natalie this model gives the kind of feedback you feel a C Groove ought to supply. The sensation I found was one of the ball "sticking" to the clubface just that little bit longer and then going straight into a directed, pure roll.

In short this is one of the very best putters I've ever tested in terms of feel.

How does the Yes Victoria roll the ball?

You can probably guess that I'm going to praise the roll you get with the Yes Victoria 2 as well. I've had my periods both loving the Yes C Groove - sometimes it seems like magic how true and smoothly the ball rolls off it. But I've been frustrated too. The trouble is that you don't seem to get the magical roll with each and every Yes model. Without that, it seems like the Yes brand is based around a gimmick.

Well, not in this case. The roll was mesmerizingly good. The number of time I hit a putt I was sure wouldn't quite make it to the hole (and surely there's no more frustrating putt than that) only to see it continue rolling beautifully into the cup made me believe in the C- Groove again.






We at Best-Putter.com won't hear a word said against the Yes Victoria 2. We love the look, the feel and the roll is out of this world. Heck, even the price looks reasonable compared with other designs which are challenging the top end Scotty Camerons and Odysseys.
