A plumbers neck mallet and "widebody" NP2? Oh boy, 2013 might be a highly tempting year for experimentation, not that I need to. Thanks for sharing these pics.

I like the finish much better but the look of the Core just screams "cheap" looking to me.  I am a huge fan of the original Method and the Midnight, but not the Core(once again).

They took away a center shaft option,  I REALLY want that mallet center shafted.  Finish looks great.

Not a fan of the finish or the red paint scheme around the actual polymer insert.  The search continues...

Wish they did the grey insert on all of them like the concept.  And have to say why do they continue to make the Concept putter.  It looks awful and I've NEVER seen one outside of the store.  I've rolled them and I don't get it.   The other putters in this line look nice though really liking the plumbers neck mallet.

Would have preferred the insert color from the Concept across the Core line. The red is distracting, at least to me.

It was made for Simon Dyson, who won with it and then Carl Petterssen had one made in "broomstick" length.

The original Method was a really nice putter. Then Nike tried to cut costs and released the Core lineup which lacks both the feel and look of the Method. Hopefully these putters will return to form. The original Method was a great concept even at the higher price point imo.

problem is I think they sold more of the core putters and their are even some pga guys using them.  I think the original method was great as well but the grooves were a bit aggressive so for me it was hard to putt on fast greens.

Agreed. I thought it rolled the ball ok but the feel was completely undesirable.

Liking the 03 here but I always like that style.

Retail will be $140 for the new Method Core. To me, the Core feels better than the Method Milled.

I like the look of the blade putter.  Might finally make me move on from my Ping Anser 2 from '76...which is actually 8 years older than I am.  I badly need a new putter.

'13 is going to be an expensive year for me...

After switching to a 001 from a MC3i, I completely agree. The methodcore series still look like a 'cheaper' putter series for some reason.
