Blade putters are the most traditional style of putters on the market. If you’ve been playing the game of golf for a considerable amount of time, chances are you already played with a blade putter at some point. In fact, it may have even been the first type of putter you ever used. If you’re new to the game, chances are you have still used a blade putter – even if it was just at a mini-golf course.
How Blade putters are designed?
While its design is fairly simple, golf club manufacturers have developed very unique styles for the blade putter. The ARTHUR blade putter from ARGOLF is designed from the traditional blade putter yet has several features that enhance its performance, such as its incredibly high MOI that sets it apart from others on the market. It also was most recently awarded a position on the 2018 Golf Digest Hot List.
Golf players will ultimately choose a putter based on its feel. If you’re looking for the best feel in the game, you may want to consider the EXCALIBUR blade putter. Its design slightly deviates from the traditional blade putter, but in the most effective and purest way that provides a solid impact with a softer feel than its competitors.
Different specifications in the weight, face type and loft of a blade putter can create a perfect mix for a golfer of any level. Most of the weight in a blade putter is usually concentrated more towards the toe which puts its sweet spot closer towards the heel. This type of weight distribution is best for a player with an arc stroke. If your putting stroke is more of an inside to outside type, the blade putter is your best fit as it makes it easier to slightly twist the clubface during the stroke.
