Titleist have launched the new Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance mallet, which the company say, provides maximum stability through the stroke and at impact from a high MOI, counterbalanced design.
The putter features advanced perimeter stability weighting in the head and a standard length of 38 inches with a large diameter 15-inch grip that reduces hand action for a smoother, more stable stroke.
“We’ve found, through our last 20 years of high speed video research with tour players, that the best putters in the world point the butt of their putter at their midsection throughout the putting stroke,” said Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron, whose putters have been the No. 1 choice of players on the PGA Tour since 1997 and counting. “From address, to the backstroke, at impact and through the forward stroke – the butt of the putter remains pointed to about the same 1- or 2-inch circle in their belly area. With Futura X Dual Balance, the goal was to slow down the butt end of the putter and keep it stable. If you have quick hands, drag the butt away, or you struggle to make a consistent stroke with a conventional putter, this is a great option.”
The standard length is three inches longer than a conventional 35” putter. The large diameter Cameron Flat Front Winn grip has a coloured section at the top that indicates the proper hand placement at around 34 to 35 inches, which keeps the 50-gram counterweight above the hands for maximum effect. The grip length also allows for multiple hand placements and the ability to grip up or down, depending on the player’s preference. “The higher we can get the butt weight, the more counterbalance effect there is,” Cameron said. “The additional three to four inches provides stability but keeps the putter unanchored.”
