Good point, D. Thing is, what makes you happy. I guess it boils down to putting stroke, stance and confidence.

I started out with a blade putter. I still have my first putter. It's the classic Ping B60 which when I look at it, I feel sad and happy. Sad because it looks so ordinary and happy because it brings back good memories.

I had difficulty moving across to a mallet largely because I felt that it was too unconventional and flew in the face of what most golfers use. But, when I started playing with a mallet, it started to feel easier. I found myself sinking more and more putts. Yes, there are days when I couldn't putt to save my life but I've found myself happier with a mallet putter.

... and I don't think I could go back to a blade.

Since you have been sinking more putts with a mallet, does that mean I'll be getting some strokes the next game we play....?

2nd to Panji, why no 2 putter option for both mallet & blade....? And just for the record, I've just switched to a blade from a mallet & no telling how soon I'll be going back to the mallet.....

vinny, your putter hasn't left my bag. ok maybe I flirted with some blades for a game here and there. but I am the most comfortable with the semi mallet. AND I kept the long grip till it finally wore out.

Hey Hara,

Good to hear that the semi mallet is still in service ~ thought it would gone or demoted to the cold palace by now lol!  Glad that despite we being personal with our putters but our putters are not personal with us......Beer 

Apologies for the OT TS.......

I would think that it take more effort to square the face up since its so light and has low MOI. But after you have mastered that, I think blades allow me to putt a lot better because the distance is more or less proportionate to be effort as opposed to a mallet where my force is multiplied.

I'm not exactly sure what the difference is but according to a pro, the tour can version might have a different face insert, hence different feel.
