    In your expert experience.

    In what order are the most beneficial benefits to take into consideration when purchasing a putter.

    Precision - Forgiveness - Ballance.

    My two cents:

    Precision: Precision is always a good thing. This is typically what you are paying for in the pro shop.

    Forgiveness: Low forgiveness for off-ding putting styles, Higher forgiveness for ding style putting.

    Balance: Still not exactly sure what this does. I notice this the least in all of the putters that I have used.

    Could not have said it better.

    To me, balance defines how precisely putts will stay on line over long distances. Perform some long putts on STA with the Starter putter - you will notice that it's missing.

    Years of trial & error, have enlighten me to the Versa L70. I believe it has performed as a miss-dinger as well as targeting the hole itself.

    The most important attribute in my opinion, is the speed of the putters.

    Matching you driver, irons, putters, and balls will give you the smoothest meter possible.

    No conflicting information to the game engine

    I have had my butt kicked by starter putters all to often. So, find a set that matches up, and your hand eye coordination, will pick up the speed, whichever it may be, in a short time frame
