So I am searching for a putter. Was looking at Scotty’s but had a question. I have a slight arc when putting not quite straight back but a very little arc. I like the Anser/Zing or Newport/Laguna style putter and cannot stand the looks and feel if mallets, Spider, etc. My question is are there any blade type putter with less toe hang that would fit a strike with very little arc?

I have a Newport 2.5. It has some toe flow, the perfect amount for me. If you do the balance test, it hangs about 60 degrees so that may work.

I’m the same as you, small arc going back and very little if any following through.

I do like the look of th 2.5 especially due to the slanted neck and not the plumbers neck.

There are tons of nice long neck putters out there. Scotty, Ping, Moore etc. They seem to not be as popular today, but search eBay or any second hand shop and you will find plenty that are still in great shape.

Otherwise Anser style putters with an X at the end (double bend) or maybe even a center shafted blade would be something to look into?

If you like less toe hang but the newport style head check out some of the different neck styles. 1.5, 2.5 all have different amounts of hang.

Can you manipulate toe hang on a putter with changeable weights like the current Scotties by putting a heavier weight in the heel position? Or am I misunderstanding it?

No, not enough weight to make a difference.

Altering how the shaft insects the head is really the only way to realistically modify.

That’s good to know because I always wondered about that. Never tried it. Now I won’t bother.

My Bettinardi Studio Stock #8 has noticeably less to hang than a Newport for example.  Just the right amount of tow flow for me personally.

I have a face balanced long neck Cleveland circa late 90s, kinda light.

I added lead tape on the sole and cavity. Now it has a very slight toe hang. Plays better that way. I wouldn't know how to replicate it.

Lots of different options. I would suggest Ping Anser 5, SC Notchback or Squareback, SC TEI3 Long Neck, Toulon Columbus. I’m not sure why others are suggesting a SC Newport 1.5 or 2.5 because they have more toe hang than a traditional Anser/ Newport with a Plumbers Neck and you specifically said you wanted a putter with less toe hang.

Thanks for the responses.  I agree the Newport’s have a fair amount of toe hang. I was out yesterday and purchased (got a good deal) on a used Squareback so I am happy with that. Looking forward to putting it in play this weekend.

In case the Squareback doesn't suit you, the Evnroll ER1 is an awesome option.  Really gets the ball rolling well. Definitely a little more of a blade than the Squareback.

Interested in this thread as well.  Love the idea of high toe, non-blade.
