The Blaze, the second installment by Bomar Putting Co. named after it’s Co-Founder: Billy “Blaze” Bomar. This model is nearly identical to its predecessor, the BB10, with the exception of two additional weights on either side of the barrel which are individually screwed and epoxied into place. These additional weights serve as a secondary alignment aid and the additional mass is ideal for faster greens.
The satin finish over the 303 stainless steel is applied by air blasting ultra-fine silicate sand over each putter with incredible attention to detail. This minimalist aesthetic and unwavering commitment to American sourced materials and craftsmanship was one of the keystones in the development of The Blaze. We have successfully brought a final product that is a balance of the latest CNC milling techniques with a respectful nod to the past by manually hand milling each face imparting a unique fingerprint like quality to each Bomar putter.

The Blaze Putter is the best Side Saddle Putter on the market. It is extremely well made and has a fantastic feel. I really like the additional weight on the putter as they serve as a nice alignment aid as well. Although the lie angle on the putter is flatter than some other side saddle putters, you can still hold this putter very upright with no problems at all. This putter has truly transformed my putting!!
I have had the immense pleasure of having used both BPCO models. I used the BB10 for over a year and a half and absolutely loved every putt with it. I thought that there was no way they could make it better, it was already amazing. But when BPCO came out with the Blaze model, I knew I had to have it. In my opinion, the Blaze model is better for people who play faster, more undulating greens (links style courses, championship set-ups, etc.) The two additional weights that were added help with keeping the ball rolling end over end and (though possibly not its intention) help with off-center strikes by keeping mass behind the ball. Alignment wise, the two weights help but I have found that the tiny dot on top has still lined me up true to the line. The added mass doesn’t take away from feel or the ability to pull the club back. If you’re thinking about purchasing, do it. These folks are humble, happy to help, and have always put their customers first. And every purchase comes with an awesome headcover and BPCO ball markers! Amazing people, amazing company. Thank you Bomars!!

I have now been putting with a brand new Blaze model putter for one month and absolutely love it. Before i purchased this product I asked Brittany a lot of questions and she was super helpful and getting me comfortable that I was making a great choice. At age 64 this old dog needed to learn a new trick and “face on” putting has been like magic ! The Blaze just feels great , looks great and rolls the ball great. And it’s super fun to practice with on the practice green and see how many people come over interested in this putter and method. You have to give this a try , you will not be disappointed !

I own 2 Blaze putters (one is 41″ with a single grip and the other is 43″ with a double grip). I have tried virtually every side saddle putter and I have to say the Blaze is the most solid and balanced putter on the market today. I love putting with the Blaze as it looks incredible looking down at the club and the solid feel is unparalleled in putters. I’m a competitive amateur golfer and I currently used the Blaze in our Senior Club Championship. I won the tournament through solid putting over 3 rounds. It should be noted that I also own 3 BB10 Bomar putters (41″ single grip, 42″ double grip and a 43″ double grip). In my judgment, the Blaze is more solid at impact and produces a nearly perfect roll every time than any other face putter I have used. However, the reason I have a BB10 in the bag now is simply my preference for the lighter club head. The Blaze is heavier than the BB10. If you like a slightly heavier putter then get the Blaze. The roll is amazing. Finally, everyone at Bomar have been incredibly supportive and helpful with my putting. My putting with Bomar has been extraordinary. The results speak for themselves. I had not won an amateur golf tournament since 2013. I put a Bomar in the bag and won three consecutive tournaments; Oregon Senior Amateur Championship, the Voker Cup and the Senior Club Championship. If you want to play better golf, make more putts and have more fun then put a Bomar putter in your bag!!
