NIKE METHOD MOD

NIKE METHOD MOD

STREET PRICE: $300. One model (MOD-00, shown)
TECH TALK: Based on a classic mallet shape (the 1970s-throwback Ram Zebra), the MOD-00 is face-balanced and has seven sight lines on the back flange. The computer-milled face features polymer-filled grooves to start the ball rolling quicker and to reduce skidding. Heel and toe sole weights increase forgiveness.

PLAYER COMMENTS:
(L) "The smooth sole is slippery across the grass. It's impossible to fat a putt." (M) "Wow. Super accurate. I couldn't miss in the 10-foot range. A couple of putts I thought were short rolled out."

HOT: These smaller mallets with a traditional shape offer a comfortable look, but the innovation here gives them big-mallet performance.

NOT: Some testers didn't like so many lines.
