Blade putters are amazing from 10ft to inifinity for me.   It is the 3Ė5 footers that I am just so much more comfortable with an answer.

Everyone is different, I canít figure out how to be comfortable with any putter close to center shafted.  I have a hiro bullseye with flange putter that is gougous and I canít figure out how to use it.

Iíve just gone full circle....always loved blade putters but found I was more consistent with an Anser-style although I never holed as many longer putts. Those 3-5 footers with a blade on occasion went left which was where I was losing shots and the Ansers sorted that out. However, I picked up a Radius Classic 8 recently and re-adopted my putting style from when I was a kid...more crouched over, lower hands and toe slightly up (a la Seve). Got the average putts back down to around 30/round and holing nearly everything from 6 feet in. Holing or lagging a lot more 20-30 footers too.
Wow! I'd kill (not literally, even though I am in Texas) for 30 putts a round! Admittedly with only 12 rounds logged this year (I've played more golf outside the US so far) I'm averaging 33.84.

Try 28 putts and shooting 81, now you are in my world.....

So I am trying to sort out driver, the onoff is winning.  Here is the deal.

Cutting down helped a lot, but most improved is from not being scared to release it.  Sure some duckyís came up, but if I am in sync, hitting tight draws even off clear toe strikes go, and if launch is good. 300+ is back in the bag.  This is all in theory on sim, but 2 thoughts seem to be working for me, more upright or straight not inside takeaway, and go through the ball straight down the target line while releasing.  Add a touch of stance that feels closed but I donít think in reality is, and wow.  Played spyglass tonight with tight fairways and trees and lost only 2, which for me is like amaze balls.  I am actually excited to play a round.  I think if I can mentally get a draw down in the garage in play it will transfer.

Older school fellas go full iron set in MBs.
Like Nemo, I'm 5-PW in all my sets,  then with a 4I z545, then 21* hybrid.

I carry MB's of #3-PW-AW-SW. Use a #5 metal also. Not a fan of hybrids and rare a #4i does not suffice.. On forced carry I club to back of green which usually works out fine

I don't think the newer blades are even close to as difficult to hit as the older blades...on an overall basis.  My MP69's are flat out easier to hit than my FG-51's, Redlines, etc.

I've never had much problem hitting the Golden Rams, FG-17s, Palmer Standards, Muirfields, MS-11s, etc that I've owned.

If I went farther back to 50s era blades, I might be saying something else entirely.  <shrug>

It is funny you guys have been talking about getting away from blade putters. I am bassackwards from you guys (well my SOP anyhow) I went back to blade putters from my Scotty Santa Fe. Been putting pretty darn good with the old PGA Armour Ironmaster. I am also experimenting this morning when the sun comes up with a Little David 8802 and a Hogan 8802 style I found the other week. Of course I have one of my Bullseyes thrown into the bag for training purposes. Lets see for this morning I have thrown into the Sunday bag the following. Old nondescript Penna persimmon regular shaft, Mac MT Custom  wood, 925 Armour 2 5 7 9 and PW irons and the 3 mentioned putters


Stu, I did the same thing about 15 years ago.  I'd tried a MacGregor M5k, the Bobby Grace trapezoidal branding iron.  :)  I putted well with it, but when I put my Cleveland Designed By back in the bag, I found I was putting better.  It stayed that way until the last year or two, when my putting went to total crap.

Somewhat ironically, I'd tried switching to a Ping Scottsdale TR Craz-E.  A married couple pair of friends both use a Craz-E, I've always been intrigued.  Bought one over the winter, started the season with it, and found my distance control had completely disappeared.  I put the blade putters back in the bag, and improved, but never quite got it back.

Until the switch to the Anser style that I'm using now.

Funny game, this golf.

For me, it's really more going back to mallet,  a type I played for 20 years, 1st true blade putter was acquired less than a year ago  Like the BB2 a lot but my KB is better a fit for my type of stroke.

I played my RomaRos today for the first time in a few weeks. What amazes me most about these pretty small blades is how well I hit the longer irons.  Love hitting the 4 iron especially.  I think I am going to really pay attention to these and play them more, maybe put the Modus 105's in them.

New as in wrappers still on new?
I just seen such a set with an asking price of 110,000 yen (nearly 1,300CAD). However, no one's bidding on it, so I guess it's way too high.
I'd say about half that price is generous, because I know that in Japan it wouldn't be difficult to find a set in very good condition -- though not new-- for less than half that price. Hell, there's a set in my local second hand shop with Modus 120X shafts that got some bag chatter but no browning or rusting, and they're going for about 20,000 yen (235CAD). If you're buying the set to use, the value of them being in the wrapper plummets once you take them out and hit them once.

A little hard to say as a new set these days is rare so the extra premium for that is hard to judge. If I had a stab it would be somewhere around $350 to $500.

The market for classic blades in mint condition in general hovers at $350-$500 . It can go higher for certain models like classic Hogans or a Titleist 681 and MP-33 may have some of that cache. So $500 is a solid sober offer, below that a steal, above that, really don't know because I generally won't go there.

I just picked up a near mint set of MP-69  3-PW with KBS X-stiff shafts. This is my first set of blades and after 3 rounds and multiple range sessions I love 'em when my swing is on and love 'em when my swing is off. I can actually feel how well or poorly I struck the ball and know immediately what the ball flight will look like even before I pick my head up. It's incredible.

The one thing I am surprised at is how straight even my mishits end up with these clubs. I will admit that since I started playing with these I have had to make a few swing changes, but still its awesome.

i dont know if I will stay Mizuno for life and only time (and $$$) will tell but for now I cant say enough positive things about these clubs.

I will add that I hit the 15's or 18's at the golf store and I cant tell much difference between them and the 69's, anyone agree disagree?

A little hard to say as a new set these days is rare so the extra premium for that is hard to judge. If I had a stab it would be somewhere around $350 to $500.

Yes they are brand new, still in the box with the individual wrappers on each club. I'm not a collector, and plan on playing them.

You could leverage Ebay data by creating a listing for the same set you are looking to buy and within the listing they will give you a "recently sold for" range which could help with an offer.

Obviously you wouldnt want to complete the listing and the data accuracy would depend on the number of similar club sets sold- worth a shot for some free data.

If you have been looking for this for a long time then it is worth spending a bit more purely for the fact that the opportunities for this deal won't come up very often.

Yup... that's the plan, just wanted an idea of where to start.

I know its not entirely blade related,  but I could do with some sage advice from my learned blade disciples - what the hell do you do, when you're off single figures and have completely lost confidence in anything longer than a 4 iron?

Do you start wandering down to the local club emporium for some new metals, or get down the range and work through it?
The Blue Thunder: Nike Vapor Fly - 9.5 degree - Speeder Evolution 757X
The Stenson: Nike Vapor Fly 3W - Diamana Blueboard 70S+
The Butter Knife: Nike Blade 1 Iron - DG S400 Shaft
The Blades: Nike VR Pro 4i - PW - DG S400 TI Shaft
The Rusties: Nike Engage 50, 54 Square Sole, 58 Toe Sweep
The Putter: Scotty Cameron California Del Mar - 34"
Balls: Nike RZN Tour Black/Platinum
Bag: Sun Mountain Four Five

Also in Rotation:

Spare Driver: Nike Covert Tour - Kuro Kage 60X
Fairway Woods: Nike Vapor Fly 5W - Diamana Blueboard 70S+
Putters: Yonex Super A.D.X Tour Forged / Scotty Cameron Newport Oil Can / Hogan Radial P51
