PutterZone.com’s 2010 Power Picks continue today with our selections for the category of Best Buy putters, following up on our selections for the Elite Three category.
Over the past year, PutterZone.com has tested and reviewed numerous putters. Our annual Power Picks recognize what we consider the “best of the best” of the putters we have reviewed, based on the factors of performance, craftsmanship, technology, innovation and aesthetics.
Our 2010 Best Buy putters category signifies those putters that offer the most bang for your putting buck heading into the new year:
Cleveland Classic 4 and 4.5 Putters ($69)
What can we say? With the new Classic 4 putter and Classic 4.5 putter, Cleveland Golf earns best buy honors for the second consecutive year. As we’ve said before, these putters aren’t a steal—they’re a bank robbery. Good looks, sweet feel, incredible price.
Heavy Putter MID-WEIGHT ($119)
Boccieri Golf’s Heavy Putter got an extreme makeover this year with the MID-WEIGHT series, shaving 150 grams off the original weight while foregoing edgy designs for more traditional aesthetics. The result is a new line that takes the Heavy Putter concept to the next level while going easy on your wallet.
PING iN ZB2 Putter ($139)
With the ZB2 model putter from its new iN Series, PING bundles innovative features into an affordable package. Twin cutouts in the flange heighten the putter’s MOI for enhanced stability, while a lightweight polymer insert is coated with “nano-nickel” technology for improved feel. The ZB2 model manages to harness these features into a sleek, clean presentation at a nice price.
Never Compromise X-Ray Putters ($149)
Never Compromise stormed back onto the putting scene this year after taking an extended break. Apparently, the Never Compromise team spent part of their sabbatical at Area 51, because their latest creation is a space-age marvel. The clean lines and colorfully effective technology make the X-Ray putters a fine choice at a fair price.
