Category: High-MOI Mallet Putters
Price: $165
WE TESTED:
35", 36" shaft lengths
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: A thermoplastic urethane face insert delivers soft feel and a slightly lower rebound. "RifleScope Technology" helps you consistently align the putter square to the target.

PROS
DISTANCE CONTROL: It's very easy to align and stroke, which makes for good distance control; best on short putts, as the heavier head gets the ball moving without a lot of effort; effective on fast greens because of its heft and soft insert.
FEEL: Pleasant, feathery feel on center contact; balls come off the face in a controlled manner; heavy weight allows for a free-flowing pendulum stroke.
LOOK: Multiple alignment aids make a good setup automatic; the red dot helps place your hands in position relative to the head and gets your eyes directly over the ball; handsome, metallic gray finish.

CONS
Soft insert doesn't provide enough oomph on slower greens for some guys; heavy head can make distance control problematic for a few testers on long putts; multiple alignment features distract a few testers from making a quality stroke.

BOTTOM LINE: One of the easier putters to stroke and keep square through impact. The red-dot system is reassuring and makes proper alignment almost foolproof.
