Wilson Staff 8802 Putter Review
The Wilson Staff 8802 has a timeless, elegant shape milled from 304 stainless steel for the ultimate in precision, feel and feedback. This release frim Wilson Staff also features a double milled facing to be perfectly flat for true roll.
This putter also has centennial features such as the gold paint fill logo on the sole paired with the old-fashioned red Lamkin 3GEN smooth pistol grip.
Owen Davies (+2 handicap)
This putter has a classic look and is gorgeous at address, although it does not inspire confidence. It gives a super soft feel off the face and you get a huge amount of feedback on mishits. It also gave a surprisingly good roll considering the old technology used.
The putter was nicely balanced, although for me it could have been a touch heavier in the head, which would have allowed for a greater pendulum feel. The thin, classic pistol grip was very old fashioned and allowed the hands to be active through the stroke.
Owen’s rating - 8/10
Josh Carr (5 handicap)
I love the classic, old-fashioned blade style head, although it may not instil confidence. It felt great when struck out of the middle and the mishits gave great feedback. I enjoyed the weight of the head as it allowed me to get a somewhat consistent stroke. I also enjoyed the classic grip, which is different to what you find on the majority of putters these days.
Josh’s rating – 8/10
Darren Ramowski (20 handicap)
This is a putter for the purist. It looks great but you need to be a confident putter to use it due to the small head and lack of alignment. It felt great off the face and gave a lovely roll with good hits. Even toe and heel mishits still have a good roll. The weight allowed for a smooth stroke and the standard grip is definitely one for the purist.
Darren’s rating – 8/10
