PutterZone.com’s 2009 Power Picks conclude today with awards for the Best Buy category, recognizing the “best of the best” values among putters tested and reviewed by PutterZone.com over the past 12 months, including several new models for 2009:
Cleveland Classic 1 ($69)
With its new Classic Series, Cleveland Golf has literally redefined value in the putter category, offering beautifully rendered putters with magnificent feel for just $69. The Anser-style Classic 1 blade far outplays its price tag with its exquisite balance and smooth, buttery sweet spot. A sleek, confident look only adds to the fact that this putter is a complete steal. Read the review.
Slotline SS-385 ($99)
Slotline went the extra mile with its SS-385 and other 300 Series putters, incorporating a quality mid-size grip, embroidered head cover, a “tri-milled” putter face, a rich black finish and tungsten weights in the heel and toe—all for just $99. The feel of the SS-385 is soft and juicy, and the perimeter tungsten weighting helps keep putts on target. Read the review.
PING Karsten Anser ($89)
A true Anser putter for less than $100 from the company that created this legendary design? Yes, it’s true, as PING made many golfers’ dreams come true earlier this year with its affordable Karsten Series putters. Don’t let the price fool you—these are not cheap renditions of PING’s classics, but rather rock-solid putters that offer serious bang for the buck. Read the review.
