If your contact is consistent then a blade is fine but in general you’ll get a lot more help with distance control and face alignment with a mallet.
For example if the ball you play is designed primarily for straight distance you can bet that the dimple design has been engineered to slow airflow around the ball to help keep it on line—one example of this is the Delta Wing pattern used on our E6 model. In contrast a Tour model might have dimples that improve shot-shaping potential.
