PostSubject: Heel shafted mini mallet putters - recommendations?   Mon Sep 13, 2010 6:18 am

Ever since i started golf, i've been very biased towards traditional blade putters and have always steered clear from mallets and 2-ball putters coz i just don't like the look and feel of them. About 2 months ago, i tried the Odyssey Black i #9 just for fun - it felt great, and my putting was super hot. I thought it was just a one off, and didn't give it much thought. I've since tried the Odyssey Black Tour #9 and White Ice #9 many times, and i'm kinda loving it. Maybe the head shape just works for me.

So anyways, before i go ahead and buy an Odyssey (which i've also been quite biased against all this while), would like to find out which models from the other manufacturers (Scotty, Bettinardi, Byron Morgan, Yes!, etc.) are similar to the #9. I've attached a pic below for reference. Thanks in advance for any leads Smile

Zen Oracle RDE Mallet. Go to BFG and try it out. You don't know what you are missing.

Yes I will bro. Will stick to current love for long long time.

Back to topic, the Cleveland putter is really easy to align.

Thanks for the replies..

Rife Abaco and Cleveland Classic 2 mallet similar. Will check them out.

From my research, many people refer to this design as "half moon" blades.

The Zen and Fastback 1.5 are more like traditional full sized mallets..

A reasonably priced option would be the Cleveland BRZ Classics #2, which I am using at the moment. Very soft feel due to the bronze-infused insert, and weighs a nice hefty 350gm

Nike Method 003, same as the Odyssey one you are looking for. Might even be on 50% discount at Nike Golf in Ubi.

If I rem correctly, big Phil also favours this type of heel shafted putters.

Hi Solarpop,
I bought an Odyssey Black i #9 (34") very recently from Pan West . If you are interested, let me know. Any reasonable offer will be considered. Thanks

I would say that out of those I have tried, the TM Kia Ma Maranello and the Nike Method 003 are among the best balanced. I'm also pretty impressed with the ZIM, but as I'm having some issues with the balance of the BRZ on course, I might need DGman to lend me a trial unit to game for a couple of rounds to see if I can get used to it

Yes, the Yes! is definitely a No.

Would much rather pay about US$60 for a used Odyssey White Ice #9.

Go for the odyssey tour black #9 if you are looking for a full milled one.
