Mizuno Black Carbon BC1
34" and 35" in steel shaft
"This is a one-piece, 100-percent milled carbon-steel putter. The milled area of the Feel Impact Technology (F.I.T) Face dramatically reduces the surface area of where the ball contacts the face, for a soft, solid feel. Has a glare-resistant black chrome finish."
Our Test Panel Says ...
Pros: Appealing look is its best asset, but impact feel is close behind; more-than-adequate directional forgiveness on mis-hits, very few 3- putts; precise, instant feel on center impact; sight line helps with alignment without being a distraction; excellent weight distribution facilitates a smooth stroke; putter face effectively dampens harshness on off-center contact; classic, contemporary look resonates with low-handicappers; softest feel in the test.
Cons: Soft feel and lightish weight can make long putts difficult to judge; distance forgiveness could be better.
"Center contact sends a congratulatory message up the shaft." Gary Wilson (13)
