The new Cleveland Huntingdon Beach putters have been unveiled, providing a soft feel from some classic head shapes without the premium price tag
Named after the setting of Cleveland Golf’s North American headquarters, the brand-new Huntington Beach (HB) Putter Collection is set to offer golfers a soft feel on the greens without the premium price tag.
The Huntington Beach Collection is made up of three designs: 1, 4 and 6, each with a line across the head of the putter from front to back to improve alignment and add confidence when stood over the ball.
The 1 is a classic plumber’s neck blade putter, designed with a subtle curvature that portrays the softness of the putter face. The 4 features the same plumbers neck with much sharper, more aggressive angles for golfers who prefer a much more chiseled, squarer look. The largest of the three putter heads is the 6, a classic mid–mallet shape with a double bend shaft.
Three new key features have combined to make-up this classic looking range. Each putter features a Precision Milled Face for softer feel and a more consistent roll and are made from a soft 304 Stainless Steel.
The Precision Milled Faces have a coarse, diamond-shaped milling pattern four times deeper than the previous generation Cleveland Golf Classic Collection HB putters. The deeper milling pattern softens feel at impact while increasing friction with the ball for a truer, more consistent roll off the putter face.
Robot testing has led to the deeper milling pattern, reducing smash factor by 4 per cent compared to Classic Collection HB putters, which means both feel and consistency have been enhanced in Cleveland Golf’s latest offering. A lower smash factor off the face of the putter also results in a softer feel.
Cleveland Golf has worked closely with Lamkin grips to offer a classic smooth surface design with exceptional feel, comfort and feedback. For golfers looking for a wider, more contemporary grip, an oversized WinnPro X grip is also available.
On sale from mid September, the putters have an RRP of £89 each.
