TaylorMade has launched their first line of premium fine-milled putters. Here is everything you need to know.
2023 sees the launch of TaylorMade’s first line of milled putters. The collection offers a range of classic putters with three mallet and three-blade head designs. Numerous neck bends mean there are nine overall models for you to choose from.
The TP Reserve family is all about providing a luxurious experience, with each putter coming with a premium leather headcover. The name was influenced by other luxurious products, such as Reserve wine.
TaylorMade TP Reserve putters: The Technology
Premium milled putters make up around 25% of the current putter market. Until now, TaylorMade hasn’t had a product that sits in this area, so a great amount of time and investment has gone into making this debut line a success. The TP Reserve line is designed and machined with soft 303 stainless steel. The machine milling allows the best detail level, elevating the putter’s overall character.
Machined in Grooves
The putter faces in the TP Reserve line feature machined milled grooves. These are purely there for acoustic feedback. As the grooves are linear with strike location from top to bottom and heel to toe, the sound will remain the same regardless of the strike location.
Performance Sole Weighting
Each model of the putter in the TP Reserve range features customisable sole weights. There can be altered to match your desired swing weight. It also means each putter has optimal balance and performance regardless of shaft length.
Refined Top Lines and Profiles
The shaping of each model has been meticulously designed to offer top lines, face heights and blade lengths that are tour inspired and look great on the eye.
TaylorMade TP Reserve Putters: The Models
The TP Reserve family features three refined mallets and three classic blade putters. TaylorMade offers a range of different fitting options to suit each player. There is a variety of hosel designs giving toe hang or face balanced options.
The different hosel designs are:
- L-Neck/ Plumber’s Neck. This is ideal for the player who creates moderate face rotation and wants to feel the toe release through impact.
- Small slant. This hosel is very compact and helps create a square face at address. Because of its slight toe hang, it works for lots of golfers but is great for players with a moderate arced stroke.
- Single bend. Single bend hosels create a face-balanced putter and help keep the face as square to the path as possible.
- Flow neck. The flow neck hosel offers a hefty amount of toe hang. This design wants to help the face close faster, therefore helping your putter square up at impact instead of remaining open.
B11 & B13
The B11 and B13 have the most classic blade design in the TP Reserve range. Each offers a different hosel design, so you can get the model which suits your stroke best. The B11 has an L-Neck, with the B13 having a Small Slant.
The B29 blade is one of the smaller blade putters in the new TP Reserve collection. This design features a flow neck hosel and takes inspiration from the TP Solo putter. Unlike the other blades in the collection, this one can be distinguished by its smooth curves on the back.
This would typically be described as a wide blade. With an L-Neck hosel, the B31 is a new take on the classic TaylorMade blade with a more distinctive shaping. The fresh design features perfectly balanced wings on the heel and toe. Weight was saved for this by shaving away material from behind the centre of the face. The B31 aims to create more stability as the weight is moved to the perimeter for enhanced MOI.
M21 & M27
The M21 and M27 offer a tour-proven wing design that takes inspiration from the TP Bandon putter. As well as looking great it offers a high MOI performance thanks to more perimeter weighting.
The models feature a combination of soft edges and a blend of machine marks withsharp geometric lines that reflect the technical precision of this classic mallet
This head shape is offered in two neck bends, the M21 being an L-Neck and M27 being a Single Bend. This mid-length single-bend hosel is shorter, meaning the shaft bend is closer to the putter head. This reduces offset and reduces toe hang.
M33 & M37
The round shape design in these mallets is a new look for TaylorMade. In this range this is the only mallet that uses two alignment aids, one on the top line for startline, and two on the main body of the putter to help frame the golf ball.
Both the M33 and M37 use the same head design with different neck styles. The M33 uses a Small Slant hosel, and M37 uses Single Bend.
The M47 is the smallest mallet putter in the TP Reserve family, acting as a blade/mallet hybrid. Design-wise the top of the M47 features the widest topline in the range.
Each mallet in the TP Reserve range has a premium sole player to help optimise sound and feel.
