TaylorMade Daddy Long Legs 2.0 Putter

 

Category: Large Mallet Putters
Price: $250
WE TESTED:
35", 38" shaft length
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: A stable, forgiving head combines with counterbalance weighting for repeatable results.

PROS

 

DISTANCE CONTROL: One of the highest-rated models in the category; super consistent, most guys feel they can get down in two from anywhere on the green; shorter putts are virtually automatic; very little distance loss on mis-hits.
FEEL: The ball starts rolling immediately off the soft insert; tons of stability—testers barely notice when they miss the sweet spot; the rock-solid head just about swings itself; it’s not hard to get used to the heft of the long shaft and counterweighted grip—after a few putts, most guys like the steady balance and feel.
LOOK: The contrasting black-and-white color scheme is a big improvement over the previous Daddy Long Legs; the big head has a square profile that’s easy to line up to the hole; the wings don’t bother testers— they’re actually pretty cool in a high-tech way.

CONS

 

Sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish between a center hit and a heel or toe strike; the huge head is a turnoff for some testers; its heavy overall weight can present a challenge on longer putts.

BOTTOM LINE: One of the better models tested. It’s a clear upgrade over the previous version. TaylorMade takes high-MOI to the max with this ultra-game improvement beast. Players who struggle with center contact will appreciate its forgiveness and stability.
