What we say...
2013 Putters Test
All three said the “Curved Face” technology made it look like the face had negative loft at address. James and Joel liked the old-school shape. Joel loved the larger, tackier grip and the black shaft, but felt the head was too light, making it difficult to control the speed. James and Dave weren’t fans of the shiny black finish, but a yellow alignment line made squaring the face easier.
Looks: 6.5 Feel: 6.5 Sound: 6 Performance: 8.5
The Spherical Blade Emperor curved face is very subtle and barely noticeable but is designed to negate skid and get the ball rolling end over end as quickly as possible. The nice polished face offered excellent feel but its rather plain looks held it back.
Featuring gentle convex curves on the face to help add to spin for a truer roll, the Spherical Blade Emperor putter held its own with some of the better known names in the test. Pete enjoyed the aesthetics while it produced a decent performance from six feet for our panel.
