TECH TALK: The aluminum face plate features grooves that are deeper toward the center than they are near the heel and toe, which counteracts the loss of ball speed that comes with mis-hits. Shaft bands help players choose the model most suitable for their stroke: straight, slight arc or strong arc.
L: "The face is forgiving to the point it almost self-corrects." ... "It's fun to putt the long ones with this one, because you make so many. The ball rolls immediately off the face." ... "Good for a player who uses a harder ball."
M: "The simplistic design is very pleasing. The oval-shape cavity is a nice alignment aid if you want it to be."
HOT: The idea of grooves with uneven depth work if you don't mind the difference in sound off the toe and heel.
NOT: Some found the adjustable-shaft model disjointed.
