Those are all kind of ugly. The Nike staffers have been sticking to the originals for good reason. What does the Nike shox stuff do in the Converge models?

Look better than last year's line, but still overly gimmicky.  I don't personally like counterbalanced putters, but the adjustable tech is definitely interesting.

Still no Rory putter.

I understand them trying to be edgy but I'm thinking the departure is too far from traditional to gain any major traction.

The counter balance looks like neat tech if counterbalance is your thing.

Close but not the same. It appears cast as well.

Forgot to say that I like the blade head cover this year.

i like the black and red look.  i have tried some of last years models, they actually roll the ball pretty good, until i tried the Ketsch, which rolls it better than anything i have ever tried. I would like to try some of the new ones though, you never know.

I actually really like the B2-01! I've always been partial to putters with black finishes and I'm really interested in trying the method/RZN insert. I couldn't stand the method method midnight finish. I just might have to snag one of these. April, hurry up!!

Shox is exactly what I thought of when I saw the Converge putters. I do like the look of the Matter line, especially those mallets. I don't play counter balanced, but the tech is a step up from the other options we've seen. Not sure how needed it is, but it's cool that they are pushing the limits.

I also just don't get why Nike went all in with volt on everything except these.

If the b2-01 had a satin finish and the same milled face as the original methods, I would game it. Imo none of the methods are as nice as the original.

I am kind of bummed they are going away from the Method Milled putters, at least that is what it seems like from what they are releasing. I know you can still buy them but at least release them again, popular shapes and maybe a nice satin finish and also black. I'd say 4 models in RH and LH in both colors and call it a day. The method technology is very good, I still have my 001 that I will pull out every now and then just because I am still drawn to that putter.

Anser/Newport - no alignment
Newport 2 - straighter lines, sight line
#9 a true 9 at that - maybe high toe
Golo style - smooth lines

Simple worked.

What are the die hard rors 009 fans take on the B2. I don't think it looks half bad and waaaaaay better alternative than the midnight 006 (if Nike doesn't offer the rors 009 or if it's sold in very limited numbers)

Interesting.. That is a lot of parts making up the head on the converge. I'm sure the tech is impressive but it seems a little much IMO.
I am not too uptodate with Nike putters.... so is the thicker insert from last years model or is it a different option for the new models? (shown in the last pic)

I have 4 different milled method putters from previous years. No way they abandon the milled/flow through grooves!  The inserts on the core line were always too hard for my taste. Maybe the RZN fixed that?
