Scotty Cameron launches new Futura X5 and X5R puttersOctober 16, 2014 Golf Equipment
Futuristic designs, high MOI performance and larger sweet-spots
5 Titleist have launched two new Scotty Cameron Futura putters which feature multi-material construction, futuristic designs and high-MOI performance.
The new 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 more rounded shape.
“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,” Cameron said.
“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.”
We worked with many players on tour and in the Putter Studio during the development of X5 and they all told us the same thing: It adds confidence” “We’re finding that mallets make up as much as 50 percent of the putters used on the PGA Tour each week – and for good reason.
“The size of the head is larger so it looks and feels more stable on the ground.
“We worked with many players on tour and in the Putter Studio during the development of X5 and they all told us the same thing:
It adds confidence.”
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.
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.
