Choose the King. It’s got a lot of toe hang, so make sure you’re putting on an arc. Blades don’t have a high enough Moment Of Inertia to qualify for a face balance. Mis hits will twist the face too much.
Do I need face balanced or some toe hang?
You need a putter with toe hang. This is because you will be actively swinging the toe through impact, which adds greater stability to the stroke. This can be done with a double bend shaft that has a shorter hosel, or with a straight shaft into the heel.
You want a face balanced putter. Face balanced putters don’t want to twist at impact, unlike toe hang putters. This can be achieved with a straight shaft into the center of the face, or a double bend face balanced that enters the heel. Face balanced putters don’t want to twist at impact, unlike toe hang putters.

What lie angle should I choose?
Do these putters conform to the USGA rules?
All of our shapes except the Finley conform to the rules of golf, and have the necessary paperwork from the USGA. For the Finley, we’re just waiting on paperwork, and fully expect it to conform.
Why aren’t your faces milled?
Milling a steel putter makes it feel softer. Since the stabilized wood already has an optimal softness, further milling is not required. Contrary to popular belief, the grooves on your putter do not affect the roll. That is done by the loft at impact alone.
How do these putters hold up?
The putters are made from stabilized wood, which is virtually waterproof. They can be played in any weather and need no special treatment.
