Cleveland Golf
Smart Square
Key Features: This high-MOI head sports two squares extending back from the face center that frame the ball at address for fast, reliable alignment. Its face insert enhances impact feel and sound, and promotes consistent roll.
Wow Factor: We're blown away by how easy this helps you find your target line. Square lines seem like such a simple thing, but it works fantastic, particularly from putts within a few feet.
Specs: Heel- and center-shafted versions available in a 35-inch length. There's also a 39-inch Almost Belly, with a 40-gram heavier putterhead and heavier grip.

Dead Aim
3D Mallet
Key Features: An optically engineered, raised, three-hole topline that makes it a cinch to know when your eyes are aligned over the golf ball.
Wow Factor: It comes with a detachable laser for precision practice. How cool is that? There's also a face attachment to help you hone in on the sweet spot, which feels huge, by the way. This putter is a breeze to swing and drain putts with.
Specs: Two models available in black or silver/white finishes. Laser and face clip are optional (but you'll want them, for sure).

Versa Jailbird
Key Features: A high-MOI mallet with black-white contrast that accentuates the face angle for solid alignment. It sports a White Hot face insert that's engineered for consistent sound, feel and performance across the entire face.
Wow Factor: Boy, those stripes are thick, but they do the job, and they do it well. Alignment is a snap. And when all is said and done, the lines don't distract at all.
Specs: Available in lengths of 33, 34 and 35 inches, with a 355-gram head.

Wilson Staff
Vizor Level 2
Key Features: Four models make up the line, with alignment technology that locks golfers into proper putting positioning for a consistent, repeatable stroke. Its tiered structure includes a windowed top alignment bridge and a striped bottom level to help align a golfer's eyes directly over the ball.
Wow Factor: The alignment system is a bit like SeeMore's, but with a longer alignment line. Either way, it's quite effective and should really help you straighten your putts.
Specs: Available in 34 and 35 inches, with 3° loft and 71° lie angle.

True Alignment Series
Key Features: The two putters in this series—Milly and Donna—have a yellow/black alignment feature on top, plus a "True Alignment" bump on the sole that together aim to improve control and face alignment to the target at address. The "floating face" C-Groove insert improves forward roll by increasing dwell time on the face. Tungsten heel-toe weighting contrasts the light polymer center for stability and feel.
Wow Factor: We love the bright yellow alignment system on top—it serves as a stark contrast to any green and is a cinch to use.
Specs: Available in 33 to 37 inches, with 2.5° loft and 70° lie angle. The Milly putterhead weighs 365 grams, the Donna, 360 grams.
