Titleist launches Futura X Dual Balance mallet putter
Titleist has introduced the Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance mallet putter into the marketplace.
The new model – a produce of comprehensive research and golfer testing – provides maximum stability through its high moment of inertia and counterbalanced design.
It features perimeter stability weighting in the head and a 15-inch grip that reduces hand action to facilitate a smoother, more stable stroke.
The butt of the putter shaft – which contains a 50-gram counterweight – points at the body’s midsection to help promote a proper stroke.
“We’ve found, through our last 20 years of high-speed video research with our tour players, that the best putters in the world point the butt of their putter at their midsection through the putting stroke,” said Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron.
“From address, to the backstroke, at impact and through the forward stroke, the butt of the putter remains pointed to about the same one- or two-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 and drag the butt away, or you struggle to make a consistent stroke with a conventional putter, this is a great option.”
The putter is 38 inches long – three inches more than the length of a conventional flat-stick. This grip has a coloured section at the top that indicates the proper hand placement, which keeps the 50-gram weight above the hands for maximum effect.
“The higher we can get the butt weight, the more counterbalance effect there is,” added Cameron.
“The addition three to four inches provides stability but keeps the putter anchored.”
The overall head weight of the Futura X Dual Balance putter is 400 grams, 50 heavier than the standard Futura X.
The Futura X Dual Balance is available now from Titleist stockists and comes with a suggested retail price of £315.
