Category: Midsize Mallet Putters
WE TESTED: 34”, 35” shaft length
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The face-balanced, stainless steel head (375 grams) attaches to a double-bend shaft. A 65-gram weight in the butt end of the shaft produces a balance point 75 percent higher than conventional putters to eliminate wristy strokes and provide more control.
OUR TESTERS SAY: One of the top-rated putters in its class. It excels in the feel department. The extra weight in the grip neutralizes the wrists and takes some uncertainty and inconsistency out of the stroke.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Much easier to hit close from long range than previous Heavy putters; deadly accurate inside 10 feet; little loss of roll on toe and heel hits.
FEEL: Noticeably lighter than previous models; stable to a fault to quiet nerves on short putts; ball feels light on short ones; heft disguises misses well; double bend shaft sets hands ahead of the ball.
LOOK: Two alignment lines on lower channel frame the ball while the topline points the way.
Heavy weighting can cause you to overpower the ball on longer putts and force you to tone down the stroke; a few testers find feedback too muted.
