Ping Pal really feels good, I imagine its sweetspot and MOI is tiny compared to the new (old) Ping Anser.

Thanks to others who just throw in a model number but some additional info would help or this thread will just be a list of putter models lol

I was in the same situation. I prefer a blade, but my stroke matches up better to a mallet. I went for a fitting at Machine and ended up with this long neck and love it. Almost face-balanced.

I always felt like the fastback was a good compromise. It's not the modern consistency you get with the spiders and other large headed weight back putters but a compromise.

You might consider a B60 or its variants.  Check out this Odyssey Black Series #4: http://www.callawayg...ies-tour-4.html.  If that doesn't suit you, the Odyssey ProType #7 might.  It's a combination of the mallet style with a plumber's neck...

Id recommend the Bettinardi Queen Bee #9.  Has a nice compact head that gives you the confidence of the mallet, but really feels like a blade.  I switched from mallets to blades and found the QB9 was a perfect medium

Toulon Columbus might work, its a long neck blade.

Weird request I know but I suck with Ping Anser style putters and found a mallet gave me a solid 'feel', but any mallets with inserts and I end up mishitting and the putt is a 'clunk' (hard to explain) and never ever sounds like a good hit and even feels like a mishit.

I have an Odyssey #7 fang and its hit or miss if I hole anything.

So I'd like recommendations (ideally from anyone who feels similar) for a blade (non mallet) putter with a high MOI to give me a consistent solid feel.

Not Seemore and not Scotty Cameron please as bombed with both.


I would think a lot would depend on what kind of stroke you have but Notchbacks tend to work for guys who want the best of both worlds with a slight arc.
