At first glance, the blade putter appears to be no different today than it was when Karsten Solheim debuted the legendary heel-toe weighted, cavity back Anser back in 1966. But that would be like saying golf balls haven’t changed because they’re still round and white. Fact is, designers are changing the possibilities of putter performance thanks to a new understanding of how putts roll better. That means better ideas about face textures and materials that improve the way putts launch off the face, weight distribution that not only improves off-center hit stability but also help stabilize your stroke, and even technologies that help you match the right shape to your stroke. Just as significantly, they’ve added this technology while perfecting the classic shape every golfer recognizes instantly.
