By: | Tue 22 Nov 2016 | Comments


Choosing a new putter can be a tricky proposition and it can be quite difficult to know what the best putters on the market are, so for 2017 we have created a buying guide to help you narrow down your choices. Check out this guide to the best blade putters of 2017 including putters from the likes of Bettinardi BB1, Mizuno MP-A302, PING Vault, TaylorMade TP, Scotty Cameron & Crown Newport 2 and the Wilson Staff Infinite Michigan Avenue.

Bettinardi BB1

Bettinardi

The Bettinardi BB1 has been crafted for those who expect a timeless design and embodies the tradition of a classic heel toe weighted blade. The soft bumpers and definitive muscles make this a time-honoured Bettinardi putter. This putter also features the trademark Hyper-Honeycomb face that is recognised worldwide.

The BB1 is milled from a proprietary blend of soft carbon steel that allows for an unforgettable feel at impact. Finally, the Midnight Black finish has subtle rainbow hues that can be found in the pocket. No two putters have identical finishes, making each Bettinardi uniquely yours.

Golfshake View (Owen Davies) 

A stunning putter that exemplifies the fine craftsmanship of Bob Bettinardi, the looks are breathtaking and it is well balanced, but if it is a highly technical putter you are after, then maybe look elsewhere. For those after a classic blade with some serious good looks, this will be a hard one to pass up.

PING Vault

PING Vault Voss

The PING Vault collection of putters, including the Vault VOSS and Answer 2, are precision-milled from PING’s legendary Gold Putter Vault. But what should you expect from the Vault collection? Well, players will experience improved putting touch and speed control with the patented True-Roll (TR) face technology. This is one of PING’s most significant and measureable innovations in putting performance in the last several years.

The individually milled face pattern varies in depth and pitch across the face, which speeds up off-centre impacts and in turn should leave to fewer three-putts. All of these models come in either a Platinum or Slate finish.

TaylorMade TP Juno and Soto

TaylorMade Juno

The new TaylorMade TP collection is inspired by the likes of Jason Day and Dustin Johnson and features a new Pure Roll insert to improve roll. The insert combines 45° grooves with a soft polymer to promote a superior forward roll and reduce skidding across varying surfaces. The Pure Roll insert has been engineered to bring the grooves into direct and active contact with the ball during impact.

The Juno and Soto putters are classic blade putters with heel-toe weighting for optimized balance, control and feel. The Juno model features longer, squared off contours with a single sight line on top. The Soto model features short, rounded and soft edges with a single sight line in the back cavity. This model also has a classic scalloped hosel for a slightly lighter weight.

The Cameron & Crown Newport 2 has several key features including the Multi-Material Technology, which features a 303 stainless steel inlay with vibration dampening material, and a 303 stainless steel head. The new small white Matador grip is comfortable in the hands, without sacrificing feel and feedback.

Wilson Staff

The Wilson Staff Infinite Michigan Avenue putter is one of seven classic head shapes in Wilson Staff’s Infinite putter line. One thing you will initially notice is that each putter is named after a local landmark or neighbourhood in the brand’s home city of Chicago.

The Michigan Avenue is a square heel-toe weighted blade style putter with the shaft attached closer to the heel and a short slant neck design. This putter also features Counterbalancing technology, with added weight in the grip and club head to create a higher MOI and a smoother, more consistent putting stroke.
