Scotty goes back to the Futura

New Scotty Cameron Futura X5 putters are said to combine a multi-material construction with a modern, wing back design to provide high-MOI performance in a refined shape. The Futura X5 and X5R models provide stability through advanced perimeter weighting with solid, forgiving feel, and vertical and horizontal sightlines for easier alignment. The X5 model is angled in the back, while the X5R features a rounded shape. The Matador Red Midsize grip matches with the face-balanced mallet design for those players wanting a more square-to-square stroke.

In addition, the new Scotty Cameron Futura X5 Dual Balance (DB) putter combines the X5 head style with Dual Balance technology to provide maximum stability for golfers who struggle to make a consistent stroke with a conventional length putter. Like all Dual Balance models, Futura X5 DB has a 50 gram heavier head (400 grams total) and a 50-gram counterweight in the butt of the shaft. This configuration helps many players to make a proper stroke where the butt of the shaft remains pointed at the midsection. Dual Balance putters have a standard length of 38 inches with a 15 inch grip that allows the player to grip down below the counterweight for a more stable stroke.

Cameron commented, “The Futura X5 mallet is for someone who likes the stability of a bigger head, the feel of a bigger grip, and likes to look down and see more lines for alignment purposes. X5 is more of a mechanical shape where the X5R is a softer, rounder shape. There’s no right or wrong; same performance, same weight, same feel. It all depends on what you like to look at.”

Futura X5 and X5R have an RRP of £278. Futura X5 Dual Balance has an RRP of £315. More at: www.scottycameron.com
