Summary: I have used this putter for over 40 years. My problem is I made the mistake of having it re gripped about 15 years ago by someone who didn\'t know what they were doing after the original thin, flat top leather grip had simply worn out. The putter never had the same feel after that. Is there anyone out there that knows how to re grip this phenomenal putter and put an original grip back on?? I\'ve never found a grip that was as thin as the original that could generate the same feel.

Shoots in the 80s
Model Reviewed: Acushnet Bulls eye
Summary: The bulls eye was the first club I ever purchased back in 1973. Frustrated by my putting (Odyssey Two Ball White Hot)I pulled this out of the closet and went to the range. Made 4 footer after 4 footer. 20-30 footers too. What an amazing putter that's now back in my bag.
Summary: I have tried to get the same feeling with every other putter out there and none of them come close to the feel that I get with this putter. I wonder if the reason why I can't putt with a ping, scotty cameron, odyssey or even the wilson 8802, is because my hands know what a bulls eye putter feels like. This is a classic putter. It was really popular when the balata tour ball was being used much more often back during the 70's, 80's, and early 90's. This design has been around for much longer, but it cannot be duplicated. John Reuter Jr. really created something special. Nowadays the balls are so much harder that you don't get the same feel that you used to get with a balata ball. But with this putter, you can come a little closer to that special solid feeling from a sweet spot putt. I just picked this putter up again a few days ago and I am amazed by the feel. I swore to myself that I would be a long putter player from now on because of my yip problems on short puts. I can't make a 3 footer to save my life. I used to be much more consistent with this one than any other one available. Anyway, this is a great find, I have the Flare Tip Satin shaft on it, which probably is like graphite. Great combination, brass and graphite. Thanks Acushnet!! Shines up with a Brasso treatment too, but beware the bright glare. Also have lead tape on the bottom. I also am learning to putt left handed with this putter too, no other putter can allow you to do that. 35".

Model Reviewed: titleist bullseye putter
Summary: im 15 years old and have NEVER been able to putt intill i picked up my dads bullseye and from then on my puttin average has gone from 34 to 28 and my handicap has gone from 7 to sratch.
hitting this putter out of the sweatspot is better then nailing a 330 drive straight down the middle .. it really is the greatest sensastion in golf.
now ive tryed this putter i cant use anything else.
greatest putter ever inventied!!!!
Summary: This putter has good reviews all over and there is not to many things I can add to it.
However, I play this putter for close to 20 years and although I tried other putters to find out if I can improve, I have never had a putter in my hand with the same feeling. All this new technology and so on is great and I am sure it works. However, this putter has a greawt feel when you hit the sweet spot. As a matter of fact I think, if more people would try to practice with a putter like this, they would improve over time.
I change grips some times and tried all kinds of grips. So that is where you can make it fit to you.
A great putter for every one. You need it longer, get it customfit.
Customer Service: I got it from a garage sale. So I do not know. The people who sold it were nice. The guy told me to take good care of it and so I did and will.
