Lawrence Williams reviewed this product on 05/23/15 I reviewed this putter in 11/14, soon after purchase. At that time, I had only started playing golf again about 3 months earlier, after a 40-year layoff. I raved about this putter then, and I have only additional praise since that time. I've been playing and practicing several times a week for a little more than 6 weeks since November, and my game is coming together well across the board. But as for putting...well, I'm getting EVEN better and more confident with this putter under all kinds of conditions. It isn't the heaviest putter, but it feels alive in my hands--just enough pendulum for even long putts. (One of my first in-round experiences with it was a 30-foot birdie!) it may not be stylish, but I love the look, feel, and performance of this putter. I'm ordering another one for my wife, and I hope Pinemeadow keeps this putter around for a long, long time!
Lawrence Williams rated this product on 11/19/14 I'm 68 years old and just getting back into golf after 40 years of not playing at all. So I feel pretty much like a beginner. I also have never bought clone clubs or purchased clubs online before. So I decided to buy just one or two inexpensive clubs as a trial. I'm glad I chose this putter as one of them, because I love it! When I played in my 20's I used a few different blade or cavity-back putters, and even though I played for years, I never got really comfortable with any of them. Lately, I've been using both blade and mallet-style rental putters, and I haven't really like any of them. For me, the Xeon 9 is an optimal combination of a blade/Karsten style with a small mallet footprint. I like its clean, simple appearance as well as its weight and balance. When I really strike the sweet spot, the feel and feedback are perfect, to me. With the Xeon 9, I'm putting as I've never putted before. If I really pay attention to the shot, I make nearly everything in a 6-10 foot range, or when I miss, I leave the ball right near the rim. I have great feel with this club on long putts, too. My putting confidence was never great in my game before, but even though I'm struggling to get my overall game back, now I feel entirely confident when I step onto the green. Looks like this putter hasn't been reviewed lately, and I get a sense that maybe it's a bit "old technology" and low on contemporary flash appeal, but I can only say that it suits my game better than any other putter I've used so far. Can't think it would hurt you to give it a try--especially for under $30!
Norma V rated this product on 09/15/13 I love this putter. I'm fairly new to golf, but my putting has very much improved. I highly recommend this putter.
Terry M rated this product on 09/17/12 Nice putter Pinemeadow. Recieved the putter as part of the short game set. It took a round to get used to compared to my old blade putter. Have played 5 rounds with and sunk a nice 30 footer on my second round. I am a two putter so that made my day. Perfect weight. Nice Job. You don't have to spend a lot of cash to get good quality with some research.
David L. (Richmond VA) rated this product on 06/05/12 i have been using this putter for about 1 year now i was very happy with this putter until last week when i went to my bag to get it and the face had fallen off. im a casual golfer and may have had only 15 rounds of golf with it before it broke. but my experience with it while it was working was great.
