Nike Method Concept Belly Putter Price: $230 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.

Odyssey Metal-X #7 Belly Putter Price: $190 Lengths: Standard is 43 inches. Also available in 0.5-inch increments between 38.5 and 47 inches.

ClubTest 2012 Review: Callaway Metal-X #7 Fitting tool: Not at this time. However, Odyssey co-developed an online putter fitting system with Dave Pelz. Go to
