Jump To: Best Blade Putters | Buying Guide | FAQs

It only takes a quick look at our pick of the best putters to see that mallets have taken over, but the best blade putters still have their place.

Some golfers have grown up using them and see no reason to change, some prefer the traditional look, while golfers with a strong arc may feel that a blade putter suits their stroke more than even the best mallet putters.

Best Blade Putters 2023

A beautiful blade putter with lots of options to suit different strokes

Price: £429.00 / $449.99 RRP


Originally created in 2011, this year the franchise has had a makeover. Bettinardi is pitching it as offering tour performance for all, as the line-up closely matches what their tour players use.

There are four toe-and-heel weighted blade and mallet putters, with different blade proportions, hosel configurations, and toe hangs.

Each head is 100% CNC milled from 303 stainless steel before being given a sleek, diamond-blast finish and polished sole, for what Bettinardi calls a “luxurious presence on the green”.

Each comes with a Roll Control asymmetrical face groove pattern, which helps promote topspin to get putts rolling quicker and, according to Bettinardi, makes the family the softest feeling one-piece milled putters you can buy.


  • Classic, beautiful looks
  • Very soft feel
  • Lots of hosel and toe hang options


  • Less forgiving than some

Guerin Rife is like the mad scientist of putters – in a good way. He founded Rife in 1997, before selling up to start Evnroll in 2015, and he has more great ideas than he knows what to do with.

Evnroll are famous for SweetFace technology, which puts more face in contact with off-center strikes, so the ball doesn’t lose energy and travels the same distance as on-center hits. And thanks to the shape of the grooves, Rife says putts get geared back onto their target line, too. All Evnroll putters come with the tech built in, and every design is milled in the USA.

The EvnRoll ER2 is a classic-looking blade. We particularly like the combination of two dots and a line to create a nice alignment aid, which gives you feedback on whether the handle is too high, too low, or just right.

EvnRoll's grips are great too, giving the sensation of holding the putter face in your hand. There are lots of hosel options and a choice of silver or black finishes.


  • Helps deliver consistent distances
  • Classic design
  • Excellent alignment aids


  • Firmer feel than some

Best heavy blade putter
Price: £429.00 / $429.00 RRP


Bettinardi is making some of the best-milled putters available. The Bettinardi BB-28 looks fantastic and sits beautifully behind the golf ball. The head feels quite weighty in the hands, which gives a feeling of control and stability.

While previous BB putters were created from carbon steel, in 2022 the company switched to 303 stainless steel, saying that is preferred by tour staff.


  • High-quality construction
  • Looks fantastic
  • Sits nicely behind the ball


  • Not everyone will like the heavy head

Blades are typically seen as less forgiving than mallets, but Odyssey doesn't want to give up on helping golfers who still prefer to use a blade putter. They threw the kitchen sink at developing a family of forgiving blade putters and came up with the multilateral Tri-Hot 5K.

The Tri-Hot 5K Triple-Wide has an MOI of over 5,000g/cm2, which makes it nice and stable (though it clearly can't compete on stability with giant-headed mallets, some of which have an MOI of over 10,000g/cm2). The wider body instills confidence and sits squarely behind the ball, making alignment easy.

A multi-material construction features heavy tungsten weights, lightweight milled aluminum back sections, and a heavier 303 stainless steel front end to maximize stability, along with a White Hot insert that feels lovely. The shaft is packed with technology and looks great too.


  • Very forgiving for a blade
  • Stable through the stroke
  • Sits squarely behind the ball


  • Purist blade fans might not like the triple-wide head

High-quality design and construction with clever tech to aid forgiveness

Best value blade putter
Price: £299.00 / $299.99 RRP


The clean and simple design looks great in its black finish, but what we really like is the choice of four hosels which allows you to get just the right amount of toe hang for your stroke.

You’ll choose a Battle Ready model for the fitting options. But remember, these are 100% milled heads, so their build quality is just as precise as a Scotty Cameron or Bettinardi.

The extensive tungsten weighting strategically placed within each head increases stability and boosts off-center forgiveness, which is at levels over and above the competition.

Throw that all into the mix with at least two changeable sole weights, which give the ability to go longer or shorter in length, and the option of upgrading to PXG’s stability M16 putter shaft (for a supplement), and it’s perfectly possible to create one of the best feeling, most stable putter set-ups available.


  • Sleek looks
  • Premium construction process
  • Changeable sole weights


  • Only available in black

This classic blade is still one of the most desirable putters you can buy

Best classic blade putter
Price: £429.00 / $449.99 RRP


You can't talk about the best blade putters without looking at Scotty Cameron. We feel the Newport 2 is a better option than the Newport, just because it has slightly sharper edges which help align things, but there's not much in it. The Super Select family is all about creating the most desirable and aspirational putters out there.

The Newport and Newport 2 have been Scotty Cameron’s most popular models for years now, but in 2023, with wide-body blade putters trending upwards, there’s a new plus-sized Newport and Newport 2, which nudge up forgiveness and look a little less intimidating.

Scotty Cameron has never really bought into inserts or face grooves, so each Super Select model comes with a simple milled face and a fuss-free misted, stainless steel finish. If you want a beautiful, inspiring, tour-validated blade putter, a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 will hit the spot.


  • Timeless classic design
  • Always retain value
  • Very popular on Tour


  • Less modern tech than some newer models

Best Blade Putters: Buying Guide


With many of the best blade putters retailing for over £400, it’s important to decide how much you’re willing to spend. After all, a higher price doesn’t guarantee you’re going to hole more putts. Typically, the leading manufacturers are at the forefront of R&D and use premium materials, which explains the high price, but there’s nothing to say you can’t find a putter for under £200 that works great for you.

Alignment aids

Unlike mallets, the visual aids on blade putters tend to be fairly simple, but it’s still a good idea to pick up as many putters as you can and see what type of alignment aid suits your eye. If you draw a straight line on your ball, a single line on your putter can be a great accompaniment for that. If you use a triple track golf ball, a putter with three lines can work brilliantly.

Toe hang/stroke type

Most putters come with different hosel options, which not only affect the look but also the amount of ‘toe hang’ the putter has. Toe hang is measured in degrees and basically dictates how much the putter wants to rotate during your stroke. Generally, golfers with more arc in their putting stroke will benefit from more toe hang, while those with a ‘straight back and through’ stroke will want less toe hang.

A simple but effective way to see how much toe hang a putter has is to balance the shaft on your finger; the angle at which the head points down towards the ground when hanging freely is the amount of toe hang. A putter with no toe hang is often called “face balanced” and the face will be pointing straight to the sky in the previously described test.

Face type/Insert

Putter faces used to be a simple, flat piece of metal, and although some are still like that, most have an insert or some form of groove pattern designed to help reduce skid and get the ball rolling sooner. Finding the face type or insert you like the feel of is key to confidence and consistent pace control.


Putters are typically 33″ to 36″ (discounting arm-lock models, which are longer). The correct length largely depends on your height but also the way you stand when putting; basically, the distance from your wrist to the floor when you address a putt is the length of putter you need.


Putters traditionally had slim grips, but in the last couple of decades, very thick grips have become extremely popular as they tend to encourage your hands to stay passive, which creates a more stable putter face through the stroke.

How we tested the best blade putters of 2023

Unlike our other club tests, we haven’t provided any data for our blade putters test. Our experience has shown that the data collected with putters varies too much from one day to the next to be meaningful. Any data we gathered wouldn’t be a good thing to base your buying choice on; it’s far more important to find a model that suits you and your individual putting stroke. Confidence is hugely important in all areas of golf, but perhaps none more so than putting.
