So i've always putted with a blade.  Currently I use a Lajosi Sensor and am having a pretty good couple of years putting, however i'd like to try using a mallet as an experiment.

Much to my surprise, I'm struggling to find options in the #7 style (think this would suit my eye the most) or just about any other style from TM, Odyssey, Cleveland etc for mallets without any alignment lines or dots.
While I can see why they might help, I can't be the only one out there that prefers not to have any 'aid' when I look down at address?

Does anyone know of some mallets that are 'blank'?

While the Spider Tourís success has mainly been attributed to the addition of the slant neck, I think the real reason it ended up being so effective for a lot of people was it forced them to aim perpendicularly with the face rather than linearly with a sight line. I never realized how off my aim was with sight lines until recently.

I reallly, really wish Odyssey would make some naked 7s and other fang shapes. The jailbird is close but still has those 3 dots in a line milled in.

Have a Jailbreak Mini - could have a putter refinisher like BOS take out the sight dots - fill them in and paint to match.

I'm asking Evnroll not to paint the sightline.

Evnroll was probably my favourite putter but I couldn't handle the sight line.  Have they responded to you?  I'd purchase another one in a heartbeat - specially now they come in black!

They don't all come in black - the ER5; the others in black are tour use only from what I've read/seen. I asked for a tour black version of the ER8 - no bueno.
