Not winged but the sight lines on the PING Ketsch are second to none.
actually the ketsch mid call my attention also. Are you gaming the cadence tr? If so, have you compared the feeling vs sigma?

I have both. The Ketsch has a softer feel than the Tyne but for me, the performance of the winged shape Tyne was better.
I tried many putters on the Quintic putter fitting system and the Tyne out performed EVERY thing, including Scottie's and Spiders.

The other point is that with the Ketsch putter you can't scoop the ball up !!!!!

Tyne all day long.

I'll throw the 2 I have in the mix. Odyssey Lucky 777ch is butter. Also switch with my Bettinardi Inovai 3.0 as well.

I second the Bettinardi Innovai 3.0 but with a caveat; for my feel, it is a soft face which is great for the fast greens at my home course. But when I bring it to my buddy's course with very slow greens I struggle mightily. I just can't seem to hit it hard enough. Granted, I am talking about pretty extreme green speed differences but just thought I would mention my experience. I usually switch to a livelier face when I go to my friend's course.

I guess I am a lousy putter!

For me it’s a matter of alignment aids. I love the number 7 shape, but I do better with a single longer line. So the top line, 2 long back lines doesn’t really work for me. I aim better with a single flange line like the TM Ardmore 3 or Scotty x5 and x5r.

Agree, the Exo 7 that’s coming looks better to me in terms of alignment

I'm the same, so I blacked out the lines near the wings. Now, it is perfect optically...at least to me.

Recently picked up a Cleveland HB 11 and it's a fantastic putter if you like more angular lines and a soft feel.  Ended up selling my 5W after having the Cleveland for awhile and haven't regretted it at all.  Great value wise also.

I've been looking for a nice wing mallet. Any budget lefty  options?
All the big named ones mentioned here come in lefty. #7, the Fang, ER5, Scotty X5, etc.

it's all personal preference although as far as budget goes... best bet might be an older #7 or fang.

Picked up a White Hot Pro 7 midway through last year and I can't look back, I love it.

Also a shout out for Cleveland's new 2135 Elevado. I rolled a few putts indoors and it felt very nice.

Been fitted for putter multiple times - I have a strong arc and I prefer a mallet but they always fit me with a putter (Ping Zing / Odyssey #9) which does not match my eye
Also, I have video confirming that I align the putter left and then cut my putts
So I decided it was me and not the putter
Kept hearing about  dirtylarrygolf.com and "the Navigator" training aid
For me, I watched video and read reviews - I bought one - with practice and with repetition I now know when I have putter aligned to target (got a good picture in my mind)- making more putts
But I must confess I always travel with my Ram Zebra vintage 1975 with its nine alignment lines  just in case we decide to play for money!!!  - I know it is face balanced and my stroke is strong arc but it works - please remember we don't mark "how" in the box just "how many"

actually i end up with the ketsch but strong arc and my back up its a versa 9 with a lot of lead tape. This ketsch has the best of both worlds, great alignment and a good arc that suits my stroke IMG_1520898858.214280.jpg IMG_1520898901.456612.jpg IMG_1520898939.458022.jpg

Another vote for the Cleveland Huntington Beach 11.
I just got one after never owning a mallet putter before, its pretty sweet. Nice Milled face, not very big footprint.
