Nike Method Concept Belly Putter
Lengths: Standard is 43 inches. You can custom order the putter anywhere between 39 and 44.75 inches, in 0.25-inch increments.
Insight: It offers a unique look, plus a radical weight scheme—a light aluminum clubface [red] and a heavier steel body—that gets the ball rolling end-over-end sooner than many others. ClubTest 2012 Review: Nike Method Core Concept
Fitting tool: None

Odyssey Metal-X #7 Belly Putter
Lengths: Standard is 43 inches. Also available in 0.5-inch increments between 38.5 and 47 inches.

Fitting tool: Not at this time. However, Odyssey co-developed an online putter fitting
system with Dave Pelz. Go to odysseygolf.com
