I recently got a Bettinardi SS#6 and also a BB2, 350 gram DASS putter. But more importantly is my switch from an anser style putter I have used since the original SC Pro Platinum came out. I have been using a DASS BB1-SS Proto 350 gram putter as my 'in the bag putter' for about 8 years. I never thought it would leave.

But these little plain envelope putters get the ball in the hole for me. My putting has improved greatly since I first switched to the SS6 which has a nice soft feel and rolls the ball well with the FIT face. I thought the DASS one would knock it right out. Now I cannot decide which I like better but definitely putt better with either one. I've tried some mallets, other brands, etc. but this was a huge surprise to me. No sight line or dot and I just aim off the face and in the hole they go.

After a long absence I took my trusty old BB1 out and it looks and felt so weird. I think I am actually going to game one of these two and wondered how many others use this style of putter?

The trend seems to be copies of ancient war weapons for putters so these simple things amaze me and defy the trend.

I assume the original 8802s were made of carbon steel? Also I did not see the PT82 in a heavy head which I prefer.

I have a 1964 wilson 8802, I game a 1971 8802. I also have an 8882 and a macgregor ironmaster. For me an 8802 style works because it is so simple. You don't have 20 sight lines to line up or anythinh like that. You just pick a line and roll it. If you are a fell putter an 8802 style is great. Congrats on not callin it a napa style.

Rolling a Wilson 8802 (?) but its the newer Michel Jordonsignature model thats black in colour, has his sig on it and is a lot heavierthan a standard one.  Ive got a fullcord very rough lamkin on mine, I just love the feel.

As mention above, the clean uncluttered lines are a dream,plus the feedback you get is second to none.

Its a joy and a pleasure to roll the rock with a blade likethis.

Cheers Chris

I have been flip-flopping between a Bobby Grace 2200 and, of all things, a Golfsmith black 8802 style putter.  They are both a little heavier than my original Wilson 8802 and I like them both a lot.  The softer the hands, the better the roll.

Played one for almost 2 years, just too inconsistent with it.  Even now when I practice with it I can't get the ball started online, no matter how much I relax.  Too much toe hang for my preferred grip, setup, and stroke.  Love the way they look and the way my Cleveland Corey Pavin putter feels is like a dream, though.  If I could replicate that feel in a naked Anser I'd be there.

I'd like to see that SB-3 rainbow finish. I bet it is a beauty. I'll have to check the Jordan model 8802. If the head is heavier I would like to try one.

Just found an 8802 and 8813...both original grips and shafts...late 1960's. Not used yet on the course but I am THRILLED.

I tend to "hang" my arms better -- think Crenshaw versus with a plumber's neck, I arch my wrists, ala Watson in his younger days. I'm just programmed and impressionable, I suppose.

Just put a heel-shafted blade in my bag, but it already has an intended home, so it will be short-lived.  Love the looks of this style and carried one for about 13 years, when I was younger.
Easy to make, but incredibly difficult to make look great.

Near the end of the summer, I finally got fed up with the putter (since it's always the putter's fault right?  not the guy holding the putter :russian_roulette:) and replaced my Newport 2.6 with a Bettinardi BC7.

Have had this style in the bag before (favorite was the Ping G2 Tess), but over time I find it's just not forgiving enough.  When the stroke is on, there's nothing better for me than an 8802, but at the same time when the stroke is off there's nothing worse.

I've got a couple.  



I have a Betti SS6, Cameron Classic Napa and a Cameron Cali Napa (recently restored) and an Old School Ben Hogan blade 8802 style.  I love that style in case the Newport is acting funny.
