Some people love it, and some are having trouble getting comfortable with the shape — I have not heard a lot of opinions in-between about the new Method Concept putter. Whichever side of the debate you are on, once you roll a few putts with it you may not want to put it down. I’ll have a full product review coming soon on this somewhat controversial new putter, but my initial impression (from putting on my on my living room putting mat) is that this putter is money on short putts 6 feet and under (I can’t wait to see how it performs for lag putting). Great roll as you’d expect from a Method Core, and the weighting of the heavy black bar keeps the face super-steady and square through the impact zone. The head shape may be progressive, but look closely and you’ll see a beautiful red anodized aluminum face piece (the same red aluminum previously used for the insert plate is now used for the entire face piece) with a white polymer insert backed by a black aluminum plate, and the heavy black bar that gives the putter head its rock-steady performance.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or putter holder), but I can’t think of a prettier sight (or sound) than that of the ball rolling in the hole on a crucial putt. I am already a fan of both the looks and performance of the Method Concept putter — like I said my full review will be coming soon, but for now take a look at these initial pics of the new Method Concept:
