From GOLF Magazine ClubTest 2012 (June, 2012)

Sub30 Type 10
Category: Blade Putters

WE TESTED: 34”, 35” shaft length
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The 340-gram stainless steel head has a dual-material face insert (aluminum and copolymer) that offers a soft, responsive feel. The large insert minimizes distance loss and maximizes forgiveness on putts hit high or low on the face.

OUR TESTERS SAY: A good performer in a field with some great ones. Quite easy to putt with and yields pleasing results.

PROS
DISTANCE CONTROL: Consistent distances across the face—the large sweet spot means you don’t have to hit everything in the center; putts track well on less than perfect strokes.
FEEL: Responsive, firm insert provides some feedback, unlike many putters with a soft polymer insert; the insert appears to be softer than a metal face yet firmer than other plastic inserts; balanced head and comfortable grip.
LOOK: Attractive plain black matte finish that’s fine on bright sunny days; a single helpful white alignment stripe.

CONS
Design logos and symbols litter the head and grip; head is a little light for several testers’ taste; distance control can be a challenge outside 10 feet

Sub30 Type 50
Category: High-MOI Mallet Putters

WE TESTED: 35” shaft length
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The dual-material face insert—copper-infused aluminum and copolymer—provides a soft, responsive feel. The tall, long insert covers nearly the entire clubface to minimize distance loss (and maximize forgiveness) on putts hit high or low on the face.

OUR TESTERS SAY: The putter is strong on slowish greens. It rolls the ball smoothly with plenty of speed to get it to the hole.

PROS
DISTANCE CONTROL: Off-center hitsstill roll true and track straight toward the hole with little distance lost.
FEEL: The big, heavy clubhead delivers pillow-y soft feel at impact, even on toe and heel hits; weight is evenly distributed behind the ball, making it relatively easy to swing straight back and straight through.
LOOK: Three unmistakable white lines and an elongated T-bar in the center of the head make it super easy to aim; head shape helps you to see the putter swing on line throughout the stroke.

CONS
Several testers find the insert too soft and muted, so it can be difficult to judge distance on longer putts; well-struck putts and misses are indistinguishable; silver trim can be a distraction.
