Quality: 

Very well made putter with a quality grip.

Pros: 

Good feel at impact with good distance control once I got used to it. Fairly easy to align the face to the cup using the line on top of the head. Good feeling grip.

Cons: 

The putter head is slightly deeper front to back near the toe than it is near the heel. making it look ODD and out of alignmnet when I set it down behind the ball. This caused me to roll the ball left of my line until I started to correct for this by aiming a little right of the cup. The alignment line doesn't stand out enough for me, painting it White would be an improvement.

Summary: 

This putter is about 75 percent face balanced and much better than the standard blade design for my stroke. I think this somewhat toe heavy design was part of the reason my putts went to the left on me. I found the distance control very good and the feel at impact was excellent. If you like a slightly toe heavy putter design, I'd recommand you demo this putter, as it's an excellent design. I just think the face balanced MC4i would be a better fit for my straight back and forth putting stroke. Even with this putter not being a perfect fit for my stroke, I did manage to tie for first place in the putting contest with it. Not too bad for a putter that didn't quite fit my style of putting I'd say.
