I keep a putter I've had since I was a kid in my office. It's a Golfsmith-brand club that was presumably a part of a set or something, since my irons were Golfsmith as well. I'm pretty sure the whole set are Ping knockoffs, though I can't tell the exact model, but I'd guess something from the 90's.

Anyway, the putter is some sort of 90's Ping Anser a face balanced blade that can't weigh more than 340 grams. It also has 1 degree of loft. I don't know why I bother using anything else, because this cheap thing is so easy to stroke. I've always kind of wanted to replicate this putter with something a little nicer.

Older model, but Scotty Newport 2.7 is face balanced.  So are any longneck putter blades or center shafted blades with the hosel dissecting the middle of the topline.  

All double bend shaft blades are also face balanced.  Bastain Milled sells a semi-custom for about $300 I think.

If the Newport style qualify as a blade putter.  Newport Slant is face balanced.  I preferred it over the plumber's neck because of the face balanced feature.  Had them both in Ping and Scotty production.

I always loved the old Odyssey Rossie Blade and wish they'd come out with an updated version of that with a white hot face or something.

JP uses this putter and it is largely face balanced but not fully.
Similarly, the Odessey WH XG #6 is mostly face balanced but not entirely.

Doesnít Toulon make some sweet fb putters?
