Mallet vs. Blade Putters
When you take off for your next game of golf, you want to make sure that you are ready and equipped with everything that you need, from plenty of golf balls to high-quality, premium putters.
Your putter is a critical weapon for your best game, so you should choose the best putter style to fit your needs, skills and preferences. If you’re torn between choosing a blade or mallet putter, take a moment to look into which style works best for you.
If you are looking for a putter that provides more weight in the clubface, as well as control and stability throughout your stroke, a mallet putter is your best bet. Many mallet putter are also known as a face-balanced putter, e making it easier to have a straight, back and forth stroke.
The heavier weight distribution also provides more strength as you hit the ball, and has proven to be extremely forgiving with a larger “sweet spot” than other putters. If you ever find yourself having to get your ball out of some taller, unkempt grass outside the green, the mallet putter will definitely prove to be useful with its weighted clubface.
Standing as the most traditional-style putter on the market, this is the preferred style of many long-time golfers.
If your swing is more arced or rounded, this is definitely the club you will want to use. With the design of this toe-balanced blade putter making it easier to twist, you will find that you have better control of the club as you swing.
Whether you’re just a beginner or a seasoned golfer, take some time to assess which putter is going to best fit your style. You may find that you prefer one to help you improve your putting stroke and overcome some of your areas of weakness.
