While the popularity of high MOI mallets has been gaining momentum of late, the two new Scotty Cameron models, the Select Fastback 2 and Select Squareback 1.5 ($399 each) are actually both mid-mallets that offer the benefits of blades and mallets.
The Fastback 2 is almost identical to the previously released Fastback, but due to Tour player requests is built with a plumber neck as well as some slight alterations, including a less bulky look.
The Squareback 1.5 is also almost identical to the previous Squareback, but this time it’s fitted with a mini-slant neck that allows for more rotation during the stroke. The new Squareback is also designed with a thinner topline and a bit lower face height.
Both of the new Select models feature the same multi-material construction as their predecessors, including stainless steel heads and aluminum face and sole elements for increased MOI and improved feel. Black and silver Matador mid-size Cameron grips come standard on both models, which will be available at retail on Feb. 15.
