Summary: Inspired by the most popular putters of the past four decades, the Nike Method Mod 90 putter updates the classic with modern technology to perform in today's game. This 90-degree thin blade design has no cavity and is perfect if your putting stroke has a pronounced archThe short hosel design helps you to promote a smooth and controlled putting stroke. The design also helps getting the club face square at impact. Method Modern putters include Nike's revolutionary Polymetal Groove Technology, which uses a combination of soft polymer and milled steel grooves to generate faster, more controlled forward roll at impact. Precision CNC milled face has been designed for premium performance.

Looks: Testers were hardly filled with confidence when looking down on this which isn't surprising due to it's incredibly thin profile. It's definitely going to be an acquired taste in terms of looks. 2.6 (out of 5)

Feel: Impressive in terms of feel with lots enjoying what was on offer and only a handful really taking exception to it. It provides a hard feel and the sound produced is more of a 'clunk' but lots of the testers were pleasantly surprised with its feel. 6.9 (out of 10)

Performance: From close range, balls were flying in, but the trouble started as we moved away from the hole. Testers found this blade hard to line up and struggled balancing the club throughout the stroke. A couple of testers commented on the shaft connecting to the clubhead just above the area you strike the ball fro which put them off. 6.6 (out of 10)

Verdict: Like Marmite, you will either love it or hate it. This putter won't give you much help from distance but our testers were getting good change from near the hole. 16.1 (out of 25)

Results: 96 putts holed (out of 180)
