NIKE METHOD ORIGIN B2-01

CATEGORY: Blade Putters
PRICE: $350
WE TESTED: 34", 38" lengths
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: A resin layer behind the face is used to regulate distance.

PROS

DISTANCE CONTROL: Its strongest feature -- this is one of the highest-rated models in this category, with grooves that impart a great forward roll and send balls the same way every time; no trouble getting distance right on lag putts; lesser hits still roll to the hole without unwanted skips.
FEEL: Deep grooves on the face produce a soft, pleasant feel with little difference between center hits and misses; adjustable weights in the sole help you customize how it swings; fairly light head remains stable throughout.
LOOK: Easy to relate to -- traditional style with a glare-free silver finish and effective alignment aid; groove pattern on the face looks more forgiving than before and provides extra confidence at setup; cool blue accents aren’t too loud.

CONS

A few guys prefer more feedback on misses; one or two need added excitement in the looks department; not quite as forgiving as some others.

BOTTOM LINE: The Origin B2-01 offers top-shelf distance control for players in the market for a classically shaped blade.
