After 42 years of golf (and probably an equal number of putters) it was nice to return to the remake of an old classic. The Karsten B60 is one of the best feeling putters ever made...and one of the top tournament winners for the pros. It's easy to line up and a little heavier than the original B60. It has an offset shaft over the ball that makes it less likely to pull short putts (one of my problems). This is a great putter for those seeking the look of a small mallet, but with the lining up sensation of a blade. The white line coupled with the two edges of the cavity in the sole plate also help with alignment. A slightly rounded sole design allows the standard black dot version to easily fit a wide range of user shaft angles. In short...if you're searching for a putter and can't find one in the vast sea of new (and very expensive) ones, give the Karsten B60 a try. NOTE: I do not care for the other versions of the B60 at all (G5, iSeries, iWi, etc.) My comments are about the "Karsten" B60.
I used to use a howson putter but as more and more players spend the majority of thier time worrying about thier putting i decided to invest in one that i really could rely on. bring on the Ping B60. This putter is far more comfartable not only in your hands but also in your mind as well. the biggest threat in my humble opinion to your golf game is your state of mind,and the second biggest threat is your putting. this is why you must choose a putter that you can rely on,and i can assure you that the Ping B60 is one of those. I now have much more confidence in my putting,simply through having a putter that i feel confident with. It has perfect balance and feel and at £65 doesn't put to big a hole in your pocket.
I am a 49 year old golfer originally from the "Home of Golf", Scotland, although I have lived in Ireland for the past 18 years. I have playing the wonderful and perplexing game called golf since I was able to stand, and my daddy put my first cut-down "hickory" shaft in my hands. (Lordy, if I only had them now, they're worth a fortune) For nearly 40 years I used the same putter, a "John Letters" Golden Goose. This putter is an original, and I am told now worth big money as a collector's item, although I would never part with it for sentimental reasons. At the end of 1999, this old and faithful friend suddenly turned on me, and started to demand that I use it far too often, with disastrous results on my handicap, scores, and mental health. With great reluctance and much soul searching I decided it was time for if not a divorce, then at least a trial separation. I began to haunt the golf stores and the Pro' shops at all the courses I played, and drove many a sales assistant and Pro crazy by virtually trying out their whole inventory. Then, about three months ago, BINGO. I came across the Ping B60F putter. The first putt I hit with it was around a 35 foot, left to right, which went so sweetly into the back of the cup you could have bottled and sold it! This putter has it all. Balance, feel, good looker, you name it. But what it has in spades is the way in which it instills confidence in the guy (or gal) who is using it. As far as I am concerned this is what it's about; once you believe you can hole it then there is a good chance that you will do just that. My average putts per round have dropped from around 39 down to the 29 to 30 mark since I bought this club. It is fairly heavy, with the weight all seeming to be in the club head, which really gives you a good "roll" on the ball. Cheap it is not. I paid the Pro £115, (discounted from £130) but who ca n put a price on that WONDERFUL feeling when you drop a 25 footer.
