I have been playing several years now and have struggled with putting.  I have since gave up on the anser/newports and want to go make putting an easier part of my game.  I am looking at the taylormade manta and the Golo.  I love scotty's but comparitively speaking is the Manta that much more forgiving "MOI" than the golo?
Both have to be more forgiving than my old ansers blades.  thoughts?

what exactly is your problem with "putting?" you speak of higher MOI, but do you actually know what this gets you?

I agree wotj hebron1427, can't fix the problem until you know what it is ...

Distance Control?
Green Reading?
Alignment?

Get those 3 aspects in order and you won't be a poor putter.

alignment I would guess.  I am prone to either pulling or pushing the putt.  I can read just fine and distance control has never been an issue.

With that said what does higher M.O.I really get you in a putter?

higher MOI does not help you with alignment. A lot of high MOI putters have better alignment aids, but i generally argue that alignment aids dont help you align (different discussion for a different thread). MOI describes an object's resistance to twisting. increased MOI means an object will twist less. all putters perform virtually the same on pure strikes. on off-center strikes, higher MOI prevents the head from twisting and results in less energy drop. If you are consistently hitting the center of the club, you don't need higher MOI. if your problem is aiming, a high MOI putter might help you aim better, but only because a higher MOI mallet-style putter typically has larger, more prominent alignment aids. However, most of those are also face balanced, so if you have an arcing or face rotation stroke, it can be hard to find one that matches your stroke.

there are more explanations in the series, so feel free to read about all aspects of putter fitting.

as an aside, if you are really having trouble with alignment, take a look at the following post, which explains some thoughts on aligning the blade:

If alignment is the issue, try Dave Stockton's book, Unconscious Putting.

It is 98-pages of fluff and 10-15 pages of good stuff.

His alignment process is quite good, very simple, and works ...

What about "swing"?
I would not consider pushes and pulls to be an alignment issue.
