I've been shopping around for a new putter for about a month (currently using a Ping Darby).
I've narrowed it down to the Odyssey 2-ball White Hot and the Ping Craz-E. I've hit both of these a lot, but just can't decide...what say you?

Spend your money of guns or ammo.

SCOTTY CAMERON Newport 2 or Red X2
Bobby Grace Amazing Grace

Avoid the Craz-E, you'll never have confidence behind the ball when you realize you are putting with a spaceship.

Go get an old Ping Anser.

IMHO, you don't need new technology to putt.
If you keep the face square and manage your
distance, you could putt with a sledgehammer.

Don't believe the hype.

Go with the Ping putter. At least I can putt better with it than the Odyssey.
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 5:32:37 AM EDT
I can honestly report that when I got an Odyssey Two-Ball, it shaved a couple of strokes off my score.

I am very confident with it.

The one I have is the more T-shaped one instead of the rounded one you picture. I prefer the t-shaped one.

I wanted to like the 2-ball style putter but I couldn't line it up to save my life. I personally use a Rossa but of the options given would pick the Ping every day of the week. The 2-ball design doesn't work for me outside of a few feet, it is brutal on longer putts.

Putters too personal, I don't think there is anyway to pic one based on anothers opinion. You have to go try them out yourself.

This is a decision you have to make yourself so you can't blame us for missed putts......
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 6:03:57 AM EDT
Get the Odyssey.
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 6:11:11 AM EDT
If you like those be sure and look at that new goofy looking Taylor Made.
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 6:28:28 AM EDT
I have (and voted for) the 2-ball. Its a great putter with super balance.

The Ping- I haven't used - is probably a good stick, but its the Odyssey that set the standard in that style.

Don't rule out trying the Titleist Futura. I also bought one of those and is my current go-to.

Plus, its easier to throw and has great trajectory!

(but taking advice from me on putters may not be the best idea. I have a dozen or more, and am still a yipping dog)

We need to see a video of your swing to determine if it's really going to matter.
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 10:34:16 AM EDT
True.
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 12:37:35 PM EDT
I used both, but I can't recommend one or the other. I have three Ping putters, and I love them all, but I am currently using a $3 Goodwill special. I found this old brass blade putter a couple years ago at the thrift shop and bought it to use in a spare set of clubs I have to lend out. I started messing around with it and I was rolling putts more true than I ever had before. I've used it ever since. Since you've narrowed it down to two, pick the one that you feel most confident with while standing over the putt. For me the putter is the MOST important club in the bag and cost shouldn't be a factor, a ten dollar putter that you feel comfortable with will outperform a Scotty Cameron that just doesn't "feel" right. Sorry if I wasn't much help, but I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

I use an Odyssey 2 ball White hot.
Nothing but Callaway/Callaway Owned for me.

Alignment, weighting, and as a side benefit, it scoops your ball up off the ground

Plus, it makes a nice hoe when all else fails...

It's a putter, why not buiold one yourself.

Putter head
Shaft
Grip

Takes a couple hours to get it fit the way you want it and the epoxy sets in 24 hours. Only thing easier to build is a lower.

Very cool of you
I like the Scotty Cameron putters, but not as much as the odyssey or ping.
