Bloodline putters are available online and in select premium retail locations at this time. We will be increasing the number of locations over time. You can refer to this MAP to check locations near you.
Return in good condition if you aren't happy with the putter. We request that you return it within 45 days.
The technology in Bloodline putters makes it possible for a player to clearly see where the putter is aligned because they can walk behind it while it stands alone. Until now, golfers have had no choice but to align their putters from above where head position, eye dominance, and peripheral vision all create alignment challenges.
The Bloodline putter conforms with the “Rules of Golf”. We began meeting with the USGA over 2 years ago to discuss the various performance aspects of Bloodline putters to make sure that we created a product that is conforming.
Using a Bloodline putter should take players the same amount of time or even less total time on the greens. The main reasons using Bloodline can take less time is that putts start on better lines, players are able to quickly and easily self diagnose whether they are aimed properly, and most players modify their putting pre-shot routine to blend in the element of lining up from behind in a way that has little (if any) impact on how long it takes for a group to putt out.
Most importantly, the putters can be bent by most qualified club fitters after you receive. The easiest way to find out your lie is to go to any golf shop and try a few putters (or ask a salesperson what lie you would be). Most putters on the floor in shops are a standard lie and are often labeled with a sticker. The correct lie for you means that the angle between the putter head and the shaft is set up so the location where you want/like to hold your hands allows the putter to sit flat on the ground (not toe up or heel off the ground).
The standard club specs are: loft (2.5°), lie (69° standard), total weight (385g. +/- 5 grams depending on how its set up (hosel, weight plugs, etc.), grip OD is approximately 1” (we are still working on having multiple options for the grip). Bloodline putters are made using a machined aluminum face, body, and hosel that are bonded to a stainless steel sole plate. We needed the feel at impact, roll off the face, and mass properties to work for the best players in the world regardless of whether the putter stands up on its own or not. We developed a unique sole design that helps the putter stand alone without interfering with the ground during the swing.
Right now we only really have center shafted models in use on tour. The reason for this is that they are not adjustable for lie angle which makes it difficult to fit/modify for consumers. However, we are developing a center shafted model that has an adjustable hosel. We expect that it will be available this summer. We have done some development work for LH putters and have made initial samples. Unfortunately, we have not made a production run yet. We plan to have LH options (which will be a center shaft w/ hosel) available for purchase later this summer.
There is no way of getting around the need to take care of a Bloodline putter more carefully that you would care for a standard steel shafted putter. Bloodline putters are designed putt golf balls under normal conditions on typical golf greens. They are NOT designed to be thrown down or slammed into the bag. They are also far more susceptible to being damaged while being transported before, during, and after the round. In the same way that you have most likely learned to take care of a $300+ driver shaft, taking care of the Bloodline putter is something that will just be a bit of an adjustment.
If your shaft happens to break please keep the broken shaft and reach out to email@example.com. They will help you order and replacement shaft that can be screw in to the head using the wrench that originally came with the putter. We will then request that you send back the broken hosel to us (it can be cut down so the shaft is only an inch or two above the hosel to save on shipping cost).
Using a Bloodline putter is very intuitive. Line up as usual; gently let go; step back to check alignment; make an adjustment (if/as needed); stroke the putt with added confidence After just a short time, you won’t remember what it’s like to not be able to align your putts from behind.
The ultralight shaft and integrated grip section weighs less than 50 grams and is made from carbon fiber material that is very similar to what can be found in very expensive driver shafts. Currently we have limited options as far as size/shape/texture. Eventually we will have other options in addition to the approximately 1” OD round version we are offering now.
As of Jan 1, 2017, there is a new rule regarding accidental movement of the ball (on the green): When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by… equipment. The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental. For more info on this rule change, go to: http://www.usga.org/rules-hub/2017-local-rule/new-local-rule.html.
Bloodline putters can fall down in windy conditions and/or on uneven lies. Remember that even in situations where the putter may not stand on its own, you still have the added benefit and experience from honing your alignment at times where you do let go and align from behind.
Our grips are relatively easy and inexpensive to replace. They can be ordered by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org and requesting a new one. When they arrive follow the demo in the link below that takes you through the steps of replacing them.
It is the most advanced putter technology in the market and includes a very expensive shaft (construction and materials that are similar to high performance carbon fiber driver shaft) and a multi-piece CNC milled head made from high grade aircraft aluminum and stainless steel.
