Rated 3 out of 5 by Xman No sound benefit They tout the plastic piece they add to the back of the putter as helping to gauge your putts with sound as well as feel. NOT TRUE. Sounds like any other dead steel head putter. Took it back and ordered a used "slotted" Anser that really does give you a gauge of sound. Don't get fooled by the new imitations. Buy the real thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ian Love it I bought one of these putters and I feel in love with it. The grip that it comes with is amazing and the line on the back is very visible. I feel way more confident with it while I'm putting. I recommend this to anyone and everyone. July 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cal Best Putter for the Money I've only played three rounds with this putter, but have seen an immediate payoff with fewer three putts and more 1 or 2 putts leading me to some of my lowest round scores. The weight distribution of this putter feels amazing and the shaft arc fits my swing wonderfully. I looked and researched putters for a while and I just stumbled on this one day while in my local Dick's store. Read the reviews and thought I'd give it a try. I would definitely recommend this putter to any player wanting a well balanced putter with a shaft arc that better fits your putting stroke. Check out all the different models of the Karsten 1959 putter as the heads and shafts have all different weights and arc changes. September 10, 2012
