Putters look solid in person, and almost appear as like a Ping Tumlbed finish just lighter.

I've been rolling the MC-11W for about two weeks and the putter sets up to the ball great.

The updated drone looks a lot better also. But the short version of the Carl Peterson putter is money. Been putting with it for a few weeks

Method concept looks much better with more traditional colors.  I liked the feel but hated the old red and black. Glad to see something in this color combo.

It never ceases to amaze me how Nike manage to make relatively expensive putters look incredibly cheap.
I have to agree. I think they make great looking players irons that feel wonderful but their putters look like cheap knockoffs which is extremely sad for such a great company. Just my opinion.

Nothing cheap looking about my Method 001. PING Scottsdale putters with the ugly plastic insert...........That is an ordinary looking piece of equipment.

Just Troyes out a these putters at a local store. A nice update from Nike here.

I really liked the MC 01, weight and feel are much improved over the previous core. I kept going back to this model because of the neck, just looked so much better. I'll be going to pick one of these this week or next.

I'm not too sure but I just picked up the MC-01W in 33 inches. I usually use a 34 but this length feels great with my posture and sits flat on the putting greens.

This club has a very lovely feel and it's not too firm or soft almost in between the milled and previous core versions.

I agree ... feels like a cross between the original core and the Method.  I was rolling the MC-03W 34" at GG and really liked it.

Well, rumors say that he has a 13 club deal.  If I was to bet money I would say his SC putter will stay in the bag for awhile longer.

Just picked up the MC02W and played 3 rounds with it last week. I originally went in to pick up a PING putter but I saw the Nike and decided to give it a try. I absolutely love it, the ball just rolls off of the face and the weights at the bottom give it a more balanced stroke when compared to last years model. I have never sunk so many long putts. I did practice a little bit before I actually got on the course and I agree that you have to give it a little more power than most putters to get it rolling but once you get the power/distance ration down, this is a great putter. I am extremely happy with it, especially in comparison to my old Odyssey White Ice Rossie I had. I think there are a lot of "Nike Haters" that will just knock any product that Nike comes out which is fine, but if you have an open mind towards Nike products, I highly suggest this putter, especially for the price. I would like to compare it to the Scotty Camerons but I might have to win a Chamionship on the PGA Tour before I can afford one  :cheesy:

Bump. I am also having a hard time finding the headweights for these putters as well. I rolled the MC03W and it felt great. Hard to understand how that information is not included in an article about a weighted putter series ;) [I apologize if this info was posted somewhere and I missed it.]

**I called Nike Golf today because I couldn't find specs anywhere. The woman said they are switching from the nikegolf.com address to the nike.com address, which is why some of the products and information are not up yet. With that aside, below are the headweights for the new Method Core Weighted putters, all of which have 2 degrees of loft:

MC01w (toe down): 360g (33"), 345g (34" / 35")
MC02w (toe down): 360g (33"), 345g (34" / 35")
MC03w (toe down): 360g (33"), 345g (34" / 35")
MC04w (face balanced): 360g (33"), 345g (34" / 35")
MC11w (face balanced): 365g (33"), 350g (34" / 35"), 390g (41" / 43")
DRONE 2.0 (face balanced): 365g (33"), 350g (34" / 35"), 390g (41" / 43")

Nike has been doing a much better job making great looking putters, minus the method D thing.  The finishes need something though nothing stands out on the them.  I like my putters to have something that makes them pop when you look at them.  With that said if I grab one of these and start making putts I would put it in the bag, but I probably wont try one because of the bland look.

Can some one tell me if these feel about the same as the last  Method Core putters?I had one of the older models and liked the way it rolled the ball but didn't feel very solid like my TM Spider S Slat putter.

I havent tried the weighted core's but I bought a MC-1i core over the winter and have enjoyed playing with it around the house.  The head seemed lighter than my previous ping after I had the nike cut down.  I threw a couple strips of lead tape on the bottom and its good to go.  Don't see any reason to upgrade to the "weighted" series when you could just add a strip or two of tape to the bottom.  A lot cheaper than buying a new putter.

Honestly I've always been a milled putter guy.  I really wanted to love the MC-11w but inserts just don't feel right to me.  Gave it to a buddy who was using a White Hot insert and and he absolutely loves it.  I'll be sticking with my 006 instead.

I went to golf galaxy today to try out heel toe putters. I went in wanting to like the cleveland hb 4.5, but it felt just ok. Taylormade had nothing special either. Ping had some serious contenders, i liked the heavier feel of the karsten anser 5. I asked them to open the scotty cameron case(still dont understand why you can walk thru the store with a 500 dollar driver, but keep the 350 dollar putters in a case. I never putted a cameron and had the opinion that you pay for the name. They felt nice, but not 350 nice. Very similar to the anser milled. I then tried the mc01w and WOW. It was love at first putt. Makes a solid click sound at impact. As for feel its not to harsh like some milled faces and not too dull like some soft inserts. It was perfection. Its looks, sound and feel instill confidence which means more putts made. It beat every other anser style putter in the store. They wanted 160 bucks. I left and told myself i dont really need a new putter. Got home and went on the bay and saw a brand new in plastic mc01w with headcover for 98 bucks. I BOUGHT IT. I cant wait. Unfortunately im going to have to find a way to break the news to my still brand new odyssey td black #8 why its going in the closet waaaay too early. This is anyway just my humble opinion and the best putter is the one that feels the best to you. Go to the golf store and try closing your eyes and putting, only senses left are sound and feel.

Method concept putter is an odd design. Not sure what to think.
