Cleveland Belly Putter Review

Cleveland Golf is once again aiming to offer the biggest bang for your putter buck, and this time they’re doing it with the new $129 Cleveland Classic Black Pearl belly putters.


Considering that most belly-specific putters cost more than $150, Cleveland Golf is clearly endeavoring to carve its own niche in the rapidly growing belly putter market.

The Cleveland Classic belly putters come in four lengths of 39, 41, 43 and 45 inches. The lie angle is 72 degrees, and the head weight is 400 grams. They also come with a long large-diameter grip to support the belly style stroke.

So, do these putters hit the sweet spot of value and quality in the belly putter world? Tune into PutterZone.com’s Cleveland Classic belly putter review, in conjunction with our friends at Golfland Warehouse:

  1. This video about the Cleveland belly putter is about as generic can you be in a “putter review.” You could have been holding any make of a belly putter and the same words could apply. How about starting with the distinction between the need for belly and standard putters rather than stating there was some pga tour action with them. There is pga actiont with all sorts of clubs. What are the pros / cons of this particular putter? Why is it priced so much lower than others? Does it perform the same / better / worse? What advantage does the near belly putter provide and does this make hold up to that need? Does it feel heavy / light? Balanced / unbalanced? Is it for novice or advanced users? Does it fit a certain type of golfer? Would you, Sean, place this club in your bag? Stop being a salesman. If you want to consider yourself a reviewer, have some dignity and be a critical about the product in your hands.

    • Those are some pretty strong words. I like this Cleveland putter, especially at the price. If you’re looking for criticism for the sake of criticism, you may want to look elsewhere. There are no shortage of people out there pontificating that this putter sucks, or I wouldn’t bag this putter, etc. Not my style.

      In my written reviews, I’m more expansive on features I like and features I don’t like, but the truth is that are very few truly “bad” putters out there anymore. I may play poorly with one putter and much better with another, but that doesn’t mean the former putter is inferior to the latter. More likely, it just doesn’t fit my stroke, mechanics, biofeedback, etc. Just because I stick a putter in my bag doesn’t mean it’s “better” than one I don’t.

      I don’t like fat grips on putters. Other golfers do, and perform quite well with them. What point would it serve me or the reader/viewer to bitch about how the fat grip on a certain putter is lame and that the putter would be better off with a thinner grip? Just so I could earn cred and, in your words, dignity? No thanks.

      My job as a reviewer is to discuss the features and benefits of the putter, and to provide hands-on thoughts with personal likes/quibbles without going overboard and making it all about me, so that the reader/viewer can determine if it’s something they think might or might not fit them (not me).
