HEAVY PUTTER EL SERIES

HEAVY PUTTER EL SERIES

STREET PRICE: $170. Twenty-eight models (L3, shown)
TECH TALK: These counterbalanced putters come in three head weights—465 grams, 400 grams and 375 grams. All feature a 17-inch grip that helps an individual find the optimal hand position. The thin face is CNC-milled to enhance feel.

PLAYER COMMENTS:
(L)"I can feel the consistency of the weight throughout the putter, no matter where I hit it. It takes no effort to get the ball to the cup, and you won't leave it short." (M) "The weighting makes sense. You don't have to worry about getting anything to the hole. It feels soft at impact, but it's not muddled, and it offers a ton of useful feedback. You know exactly where it'll go the moment you hit it."

HOT: Heavy Putter was counterbalanced when counterbalancing wasn't cool. Now it has three weight classes.

NOT: Plenty of models, but few for left-handers.
