TITLEIST SCOTTY CAMERON SELECT NEWPORT 2
CATEGORY: Blade Putters
WE TESTED: 34″, 35″ length
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: A vibration-dampening membrane between the stainless steel body and face insert softens feel.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Great from any length, and can drop bombs for birdies; controlling length seems intuitive; balls stay on the face for a sweet moment before rolling perfectly end over end.
FEEL: In a word: divine; solid but soft in the center, the new insert is even more refined than before; highly stable and exceptionally balanced—the head glides through the stroke; top-shelf all the way.
LOOK: classic beauty with touches of modernity—the silver finish screams luxury while a single black line along the flange provides a helpful visual cue; the face insert extends coolly into the sole.
Players who need more help might prefer the Select Newport M2; the price tag can keep players from upgrading.
BOTTOM LINE: This year’s top blade earns the highest ratings in looks, feel and distance control. Put this one on the top of your must-try list.
