Quality: 

Very nice, solid construction. I like the insert - it does feel softer, though I use distance balls, mostly, with hard covers that may negate whatever feel the putter would provide. Headcover's very nice, velcro'ed to stay in place.

Pros: 

The head is heavier than the TaylorMade nubbins b1s blade that I've been using beforehand, which I expected. I pull most of my putts, so I wanted the heavier head to help me feel the clubhead and be able hold it parallel to the target line on the through-stroke. The double-line alignment guide is also very helpful, especially if you line-mark your balls. With the lighter blade, I tend to rush the putting stroke. The heavier mallet helps me control the speed and control any stabbing motion.

Cons: 

The only negative I can think of is that the bigger putterhead makes it more cumbersome to store in a carry bag. I have an 8" bag - the lightest bag I have - that I use during the summer months, so the clubhead sometimes gets in the way. I have another bag with a separate putter tube on the outside of the bag, but it's located near where the doublestrap is hooked onto the bag, so sometimes it catches part of the strap.

Summary: 

A very nice looking, beautifully constructed putter, one to consider if you're looking for a mallet without the 2-ball price. Hefty, good for putters who want to slow down their tempo somewhat. Easy to align with the double lines on the clubhead.
