Magic Putter vs Bull's-eye putter

The Magic Putter is like a modern version of the Bull’s-eye putter

The two putters do share some similar characteristics. They are both center shafted. Some Bull’s-eye models have 2 putting faces; all Magic putters have 2 milled putting faces. One of the key improvements we feel we have made to the old Bull’s-eye is the increased weight and mass of the Magic putter. The Magic heads weigh between 385 and 400 grams. The Bull's-eye all weigh considerably less than 300 grams.

The added mass of the Magic putter helps it to swing itself much easier with less need for manipulation. The increased mass of the Magic putter also makes it much more stable at impact, especially on miss hits toward the heel and toe. The added mass of the Magic putter also makes it a much better putter on the longer putts. 

The Magic putter is perimeter weighted, the bull’s-eye is not. The Magic putter’s heel and toe weighting make it much more forgiving on off center hits. We accomplished this by removing weight out of the slots between the sweet spot and the toe and between the shaft and the heel. The heavier weight in the heel and toe is what makes the Magic Putter so much more resistant to twisting on your off center hits.  The Magic putter’s forgiveness helps to keep your mishit short putts on line.  

The Magic putter’s legendary forgiveness is especially evident on your lag putts. Even when you mishit it off of the toe, the ball still gets to the hole. The bull’s-eye flies open if you hit an inch toward the toe. The Magic putter barely opens at all when you hit it an inch toward the toe. Putts off of the toe of the Magic putter will hold their intended line better and roll your chosen distance as if by magic.

 

The Magic Putter design is fundamentally built for accuracy.

 

I always found my old Bull's-eye difficult to line up. This is for a couple reasons.  

1. Because the Bull's-eyes 2 sided model is so narrow, there is no clear view of the entire front putting surface. The toe is visible, but it blends into the shaft to hide the heel. The Magic putter is wider and therefor allows the player to see the entirety of both the leading edge and the trailing edge.

 All Magic putters give the player a totally unobstructed view of both the front and back putter faces. You square up the front face to your line and the back putting face provides you with a 2nd visual reference point. Our Double sight line model [pictured above] has proved to be especially helpful to those who have difficulty in lining up their putters. 

2. Most Bull's-eye putters don't have a sweet spot line or dot to help the player to determine where to contact the ball on the sweet spot with the putter. I found this lack of line caused me some doubt when addressing the ball with the Bulls-eye.

All Magic putters have a sweet spot line. The sweet spot line helps the player to address the ball properly every time.

The Magic putter's center of gravity is directly under the sweet spot line. This is one of the advantages of designing putters with today's modern computers, we can determine the exact center of gravity and place the sweet spot line directly above that spot.

  For those players that aim the line on the ball, the sweet spot line becomes a natural extension of that line.

The Bulls-eye is a nice putter and has been used by many great players like Corey Pavin and Notah Begay.    

I personally wanted a heavier perimeter weighted version with a wider face to help with the alignment process. That is why I decided to design the Magic putter. I love it and I hope you do also. Enjoy the Magic. Tim Holman
