It's safe to say that a good number of golfers on the planet have not tried a blade putter before. But once they do, it's hard to stop. The pure feel and unrivaled control blade putter gives unmatched. In this post, we're going to compare two of the most popular blades, examining everything from the speed and accuracy of each clubface to their unique appearance.
It's also believed that every golfer has a blade, unique in its features and functionality. You can check this out for recommendations on one that will fit your style and playing needs.
First, a Quick Refresher on Blades
The most prominent feature of any blade is, obviously, the blade itself. For most golfers, it will take some time to get used to the sight of it. Be sure to use an alignment aid (like the ones found on our Optics line) to help yourself adjust.
From a performance standpoint, blades are better suited for golfers with slower clubhead speeds who don't need as much forgiveness from their putter. That's because you can't take many divots with a blade putter, and the face itself doesn't hinge like a more traditional putter does.
The Bullseye Blade uses our HollowTech II construction to reduce unwanted vibrations and significantly increase the sound and feel of impact. The Most Wanted Blade features award-winning Hyperbead II Roll technology in the heel-and-toe, promoting a faster, more consistent roll.
The Bullseye blade is slightly faster than the Most Wanted Blade. As a result, you can expect the face of the Bullseye to move through putts more quickly. Conversely, the Most Wanted Blade features slightly more forgiveness, which would be beneficial for golfers with slower clubhead speeds or those needing a bit of help getting the ball to stop on a dime.
Not only did the Bullseye feature a faster ball speed, but it also put the ball further with a lower launch angle. You can expect more accurate looks off your line with the Bullseye, too.
Which One Should You Pick?
If you're a low-handicapper with a fast clubhead speed who wants to shave off strokes from your average score, you may want to consider the Most Wanted Blade. Its Hyperbead II Rollface promotes faster, more consistent roll, and higher MOI helps keep your putter in line throughout the stroke.
If you're a high-handicapper with a slower clubhead speed who wants the opportunity to take a little off your putts and add some confidence back into your stroke, you may want to consider the Bullseye Blade. It will help you get more control over your putter and focus more on the feel of impact.
Choosing a Golf Blade
There is no question that driving the ball farther and better is a top priority for any golfer. But how should one go about accomplishing this? Many golfers mistake using a blade they think will help them do so, only to find out after they purchase it that it does not affect their game whatsoever.
As with any other sport or hobby, some people have different opinions on what golf clubs to use and what equipment to buy. One item in particular that has stood out as a contentious topic is golf blades which have led to many questions among players about which blade they should buy.
Swing and Game Style: To find the best golf blade, you must first evaluate your swing and game style. This is done by considering how much time you have to play and whether or not you enjoy practicing a lot. You should also consider the distance of your shots, which blade provides more spin, and which one will help with recovery.
The next step is to decide upon your preferred length of the trajectory. The most important aspect of playing distance is the pitch at which you hit the ball, your launch angle. Traditionally, metal blades have been used for pitches between 50 and 150 yards, while hybrid blades provide cover for a wide range from 30 to 170 yards. However, it’s important to know that there’s no single 'best' trajectory or length of the pitch.
The final step is to analyze the pros and cons of the different types of blades. The most important of these is their playability and hitting dynamics. The playability relates to how comfortable a blade is during play, while hitting dynamics concentrate on the smoothness of the shots.
