SeeMore M8 Putter Review

The SeeMore Putter company is no stranger to the readers of The Hackers Paradise. We have reviewed almost their entire line and they were the winners of the 2009 Huge Putter Shoot Out a few months back. More recently the readers of THP got a treat with an Education Of the SeeMore Putter Company, an article written by both myself and the wonderful people behind this great company.

When the folks at SeeMore contacted The Hackers Paradise about reviewing one of their new putters we were eager to see what they had to send over to us. We had no idea what was coming, but as you can see from the unboxing pictures that we put up on the forum, we were a delighted with what arrived.

First Impressions
The look of the SeeMore M8 is unlike most of the other putters in their line. It is a hybrid type of putter shape leaning more towards blade than it does mallet, but has a longer back end compared to that of a traditional putter. The M8 is 100% milled in the USA and the face has a different shade of mill marks in the center that make it stand out in a way few putters do. One more thing to note that we noticed right away was the shaft. SeeMore putters all have the bottom part of the shaft blacked out in order to use their Riflescope Technology correctly. This M8 prototype had the finish done in a gun metal color that we like A LOT!

The Practice Green
All of the THP testers were eager to get this SeeMore Prototype out to the practice green to give it a try so the following day we gathered 4 people and went to roll it for a few hours. All four of the testers that were out here on this day play a SeeMore putter so this was a nice comparison.

Josh – SeeMore mFGP2
Tim – SeeMore mFGP2
Jason – SeeMore FGP
Mike – SeeMore SB1

Each one of the testers involved took turns with their regular SeeMore putter and the new M8 prototype. We all definitely liked this putter quite a bit and the two of us that play the milled versions already thought that the new M8 had the feel we are used to. Soft and responsive with a unique sound as the ball comes off the face. Jason, who normally plays the FGP, loved the soft feel of the milled M8 so much that he was already calling his “better half” to get permission to upgrade to a milled SeeMore putter. Mike, who plays the SB1, still preferred the feel and performance of his putter to that of the M8 prototype.

Course Testing
Testing this putter on the course felt as natural as any putter testing we have done. The center shafted M8 prototype is as soft as any milled putter we have tested to date. For those that have not tried a SeeMore milled putter, you owe it to yourself to try one out. They have a unique feel that is more responsive than just about anything else we have tried to date. Rolling the ball during play was as expected, truly exceptional. The M8 definitely plays more like a blade on the course than a mallet and the roll is true and pure. It has a unique sound off the face that is quite pleasant and when you strike it dead center sounds perfect. SeeMore has set the bar so high that each time THP gets to review one of their new offerings we are almost trying to find something wrong with each one. After each round I found myself enjoying this model more than just about any other we have tried to date.

2nd Practice Session
We gathered 7 more golfers on a local public putting green and had them take THP’s Putter Challenge. We have done this in a few of our past putter reviews and it always turns out to be a lot of fun. The players hits 3 balls each from 5, 10, 15, and 25 feet with their own putter and with the SeeMore M8 Prototype. We then measure the distance away from the cup on average for all the golfers. After all 7 golfers had tried out each putter from each distance, THP got out their abacus and did some math. The SeeMore was closer to the hole by 6 out of the 7 players involved compared to their current putter. In fact from 15 feet away the misses with the SeeMore M8 were more than 12 inches closer to the hole than that of the testers’ current putter. It may not sound like much, but the difference between a 3 footer and 4 footer is quite large during a round.

Overall
The SeeMore M8 prototype is another example of why this company continues to amaze us with every putter that we try out. More and more players continue to jump over to the Riflescope Technology from SeeMore and we understand why. IT JUST WORKS. If you have not tried one of their offerings you are doing yourself a disservice as most of the time they can help make more putts.

  • I really like the shape of this model. I had not heard of Seemore until reading the putter shoot out here and got myself an fgp. I have been putting better with it since day one but the shape is not perfect for me. This one might be. Looking forward to trying it out. Like the review says, the red dot just works.

  • Seemore’s best-looking putter ever, IMO. Love everything about the putter’s looks; reading about its performance just about sold me. I like my current putter, but I now have a yearning for this beauty. Thanks for the great review and awesome pics.

  • Great looking club. I have not tried one out but I saw the local store near me now carries a few models. Time to roll a few tonight.

  • I am a huge fan of the milled putters that seemore makes. I currently use the m1 and this one fits my eye a little better. Great, now I have to find this one when it comes out. just kidding. Great review.

  • How much different is this model than the “oneputt?” I really liked the oneputt but switched to the M1 and couldn’t be happier. for reference, pictures of my OnePutt:

  • James,
    It has a similar design, but that is where the comparisons really end in my opinion. The feel is completely different. Both are high quality putters, but we definitely prefer the M8

  • As a Seemore putter convert since finding the online reviews, this model is gorgeous. I still hope they come out with another type of mallet soon though. Something different that would really shine.

  • This is one good looking putter. Hope it comes out soon.

  • The putter is beautiful. I love the shape of this one, I cant wait to roll some putts with it.

  • I really want this putter! I haven’t really wanted to use a mallet, but this one is in between. Plus, it looks like you can pick up the ball with it, unlike the FGP.

  • When will these be available?

  • this is almost the mirror image of the ‘oneputt ‘ which i think is one of the best putters made by seemore second to only the mFGP.. i have almost every putter that seemore has made and these are the two best.after using seemore putters i wouldnt take a scotty cameron to a minature golf course. but thats my opinion….

  • Does anyone know if these will be making it into production and if so, when?

  • Yes they will we are being told and when? Should be soon. Our guess is at the PGA show in January.

  • Outstanding!!! This has got to be one of the best looking putters I’ve ever seen. Hopefully not much will be changing in the retail version, although the option of the whistle shaft would be icing on the cake!

    Thanks for the info.

  • I was able to get my hands on one of these babies.

  • I sent a note to SeeMore about this putter on their website in the afternoon after closing hours back east, received a response about 8:00 PST that night, and received a note from their local rep the next day to set up an appt to test out the putter at a golf course on Easter Sunday–excellent customer service!

    It is beautiful and rolls the ball nicely. I just upgraded from an ITZ to an M1, though, and the M8 didn’t seem to offer significant improvement in feel or control over the M1. One very cool thing on the M8 (and other new putters) is the black paint/coating has been changed to a ceramic-like coating, which looks more durable (and nicer).

  • […] put out over the past couple of years. Just in the last few months we have had the opportunity to review the m8 putter and were literally blown away by the looks, feel, and performance of this flatstick. THP followed […]

  • When comparing the m8 ss to the m fgp2, which one was better? Also, have you tested the standard shaft length vs the belly putter counterpart? That would be a very interesting comparision.
