I'm personally not a big fan of mallets because of the way they swing and especially not the 2-ball range but you can't dispute the fact they're the easiest putters to align. Also up there are the Bobby Grace MOI putters and the Never Compromise Voodoo series.

Are you having problems with alignment or was it just a general question?

It's a question of circles or lines and which one works better for me. I used a 2 Ball dfx for about a year and thought it was easy to align but I struggled for a year with the TM Rossa Monza, it was hard to allign and was far too heavy. I now prefer a smaller blade style putter with a single straight line for allignment, I am currently playing the TM Rossa Daytona 1 cgb and I've never putted better.

For me the 2006 Guerine Rife 2 bar mallet. It has 2 bars for sight lines, then a white line in the middle for sighting as a notch in the head that lines up with the white line to aid in setting up with the same lie angle every time.

I'm may be biased because this putter is in my bag, but one of the reason's I "fell" for the Del Mar 3.5 immediately was that it was so easy for me to line up.  The vertical whie line give me a better visual on the angle of the face and the horizontal for the target line.

I'm going to agree with the Rife. Plus, how cool is it that it comes with a nice leather case and interchangeable weights?

I really like pitbull's Del Mar putter with that 'T' alignment thing.  The Ben Hogan Bettinardi Hawk and Baby Ben putters have an alignment system like that.  Unfortunatly, I just don't like the look and size of those putters.  I messed around with one of these the other day and just could not get comfortable with it.

The Macgregor Bobby Grace putters are not bad either, I would prefer the Mini GT for its smaller size.  I putted around with one of these also but just could not pull the trigger on it.

And the Frankly Golf Frog Putters also have that, but I have never seen one anywhere so who knows how they feel.

The answer to this question varies greatly depending on the person.  There is a guy in Reedsport OR named David Edel (www.edelgolf.com) that has created the most amazing putter fitting system I have ever seen.  He has a fit cart and from this cart he can create over 10,000,000 different putter combination.  The basis of his fitting system is that players should be playing the putter that gets them aimed at the hole correctly.  The amazing thing is watching him fit someone and watching as their aim changed dramatically just by him changing the head style, the offset, hosel design, different sightlines even length and lie severly effect your aim.  It is also amazing watching someone who has been putting with an ill fitting putter drain putt after putt after putt with their correct fit putter.  He has done this literally hundreds of thousands of times and he told me that the average person is off about 13 inches on their aim on a 6 footer.  Turn that 6 footer into a 50 foot lag and the average person is now just over 10 feet off on their aim.  This is serious stuff.  I have personally watched him fit about 10 people and not 1 of them was even very close with aim on their own current putter and then within minutes of David working with them to find the right putter they are all aiming dead inside the center of the hole.  I watched a + handicapper yesterday go through a fitting they had been using the same putter for over 5 years and his aim was off about 8 inches to the left on that first test 6 footer.  (and before we did this he said his #1 putting problem was missing putts left inside 10 feet..... wonder why!)  Then after about 10 minutes David found his correct fit putter and he was aiming perfect.  He then went out on the practice green and drained 15 8 footers in a row on the spot and then proceeded to have his best putting day in years (25 putts) while shooting 69 at Bandon Trails (on greens that are VERY tough and on a course he had not played before) later that afternoon.  Bottom line is I am sure most of you guys out there think you are aimed correct and that you have a putter that fits you well.  Bottom line is 99% of you are dead wrong.

Fairway Fred,

Thanks for the great post.  I'm now annoyed that there isn't a fitting centre in Australia.

For me the Never Compromise GM2 is the easiest to line up, but that could just be my eye.
