TaylorMade Daytona 6
Category: Blade Putters
We tested: 34", 35" shaft length

Company line: "The 304 stainless steel head has a softer 'AGSI+' technology insert with 14 grooves positioned closer together to promote better touch and more efficient spin for a smoother roll."

OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: One of the top putters in its category; the insert produces tight, consistent roll without skidding; testers recommend it for all abilities; excellent distance control; nicely balanced head; plenty forgiving for this putter style; well-struck putts are rewarded with a soft pop that produces smooth roll; simple white alignment aid isn't overdone; rich, bold, attractive color scheme.

CONS: Some panelists find it difficult to see vast improvement over the previous 'AGSI' insert; a few testers want more feedback on longer putts.

TaylorMade Rossa Monte Carlo
Category: Midsize Mallet Putters
We tested: 34", 35" shaft length

Company line: "This Tour-proven head shape features our 'AGSI+' insert technology with 14 grooves positioned close together for improved touch and a tighter roll. Our Tuscan nickel finish provides a sleek, beautiful look."

Our Testers say:
PROS: The grooved face insert creates traction and initiates a tight roll; speed control is consistent with above-average forgiveness; provides more feedback than many mallets; appears to have a large sweet spot given its size; good feel, even on off-center hits; attractive red and gray color combination; the ball rolls with authority.

CONS: Some guys want to sense more head stability during stroke; lie angle seems more upright than others; bright red grip with graphic doesn't appeal to everyone.
