Review: Strokes Gained Tour Blade Putter
The Strokes Gained Tour Blade putter has all the finishing touches of a high-end putter. As you can see from the picture above, their carbon steel heads have deep milling on the face. The one area that they really surpass many other putter companies is their finishes. I realize that this is really just about looks, but I love their finishes. The “tortoise shell” finish on my Tour Blade turned out amazing. A quick browse of their site shows off their other cool finishes.
They also offer custom stamping and paintfill. They have some “stock” things that are part of certain models, but must have empty soles and bumpers for any custom work you might want. I didn’t request any fancy stamping on this classic putter. It looks great with just the few notations of the putter and company filled with gold paint. The whole combo looks amazing.
Visually the Strokes Gained Tour Blade Putter is amazing, but the feel and consistent roll are what will keep this putter in the bag. I was really impressed by the feel of this carbon steel head. It is very solid without being “clicky”. The head design is solid and with the slightly heavier weight it feels like the perfect balance for putting. While I don’t have any course records to show from using this putter, I certainly gained some strokes on the green with this putter. Draining a few longer putts certainly gave me confidence with this putter in the bag.
Strokes Gained is doing things right and offers you some really cool options for custom putters. Their classic designs, custom options and creative finishes are worthy of being the putter in your bag. When you make it “your” putter through customization, it will give you confidence and help you gain strokes.
