5 Best Putters Reviews
The Odyssey White Hot Pro 1 is widely regarded to be the best putter there is right now. When we first looked at it, we noticed the amazing gun metal finish that it had, and how great the overall design was. The pure white centre surrounded by the contrasting dark gun metal finish just looks great from all angles.
It is very lightweight, yet still durable. The White Hot Pro Insert is incredibly consistent, and feels great when you take a swing with it, and so it should, as it was tested by some of the best players in the world who provided Odyssey’s engineers with feedback on how they could improve it over and over again until it was finally perfected.
When we tested this putter out on the course, we instantly fell in love with the feel, sound and performance of it, and this is now our go-to putter when we want to play a bit of golf.
Summing it up, this putter is the only putter you will ever need, it is consistent, great looking, and has great performance. At such a low price, this is a must have for anyone who enjoys playing golf, regardless of age or skill.
The Pinemeadow Gazelle Putter has a very unique shape that is there to help you out while putting on the course. It is equipped with two stabilizer arms that push weight to the outside of the putter, which means your stroke will be kept in-line and balanced, a very handy feature indeed.
When we took it out for a test on our local course we were amazed at how well balanced this putter feels. It makes putting so much easier, plus when you hit the ball in just the right place you get to hear a very satisfying sound.
It gives you so much control that it feels like a natural extension of your arm, which is immensely helpful when golfing. Looks-wise, it’s fairly average, nothing special, but for the price you pay the functionality and performance is astounding. It feels and performs like a putter that cost’s four times as much, which is very impressive.
In short, a very nice putter that you will feel comfortable using as it is so well balanced. We are so surprised at how good it is for the price, so if you are strapped for cash, this is one of your best options.
This putter is one of our favourites, and although it is technically not a putter, but a putter-chipper hybrid, it deserves to be included on this list simply because of how great it is.
This putter is an extremely high quality, heavy duty product and is guaranteed to last for a long time no matter how frequently you use it. This putter is very comfortable to hold, due to its weight and ergonomic grip. It feels well balanced and lightweight compared to other putters we have used.
Visually, it is pretty great. The glossy finish on the putter head looks fantastic and incredibly sleek, but is a dust, dirt and fingerprint magnet, so be sure to clean it every once in a while. Other than that though, there are no real cons to the whole design and finish of the putter.
In a nutshell, this putter is very good, but not quite as good as the Odyssey White Hot Pro 1 or the Pinemeadow Gazelle Putter. It is cheaper than both though, so if you can’t spare an extra few bucks for either of those, then you should probably get this, it is the next best thing. We highly recommend this putter.
The first thing we noticed about the PGX putter when we took it onto the course for a test was the stark white finish that was in great contrast to the green grass. It really stands out, especially when in the address position. The contrast helps you focus on the alignment guides that make sure the putter is on target.
It is “tour weighted” with an extra 40g of weight, that is suited best for the faster greens that are becoming more and more common worldwide. This can be a problem if you are a novice golfer because the extra weight puts a lot of power behind your stroke, but if you practice the extra weight may become an advantage.
It is of a very high build quality, and feels sturdy when you are using it. It has a fantastic feel while putting, and the guidelines make it extra easy to line up and get that perfect shot. It also sounds great, when you hit the ball in exactly the right place you hear a very satisfying “Thwack!” which is nice.
Overall, we love this putter for the same reasons we love any other good putter: It feels good, sounds good, and is good. While it is rated slightly lower than the Odyssey White Hot Pro 1 by users and critics, some may still prefer this putter. It is a matter of personal preference.
This great putter has the classic blade styling with the best materials and manufacturing. We love the simple blade styling, especially in black, because it looks and works so well. This putter feels well balanced and lightweight, and when we tested it we found it was very easy to use.
If you are looking for a simple putter without all the fancy technology most of today’s golf clubs have, then this is what you should purchase. Extremely simple, barebones putter that is still very usable for both beginners and intermediate golfers alike.
We mainly recommend this putter because it is a throwback to the classic Titliest Bullseye Style putters from the 1940’s, because if a style has been around for over half a century but is still being used, it must be doing something right.
All in all, this is a fantastic blade style design, and its simplicity is what really makes it shine, alongside the balance and performance that it has. Although this is rated lower by users and critics than the items on the top of the list, some may still prefer the minimalist approach to this putter.
