Areso Kine-fit Optimus

Our Review:

At first glance this might look like a putter someone jerry-rigged from a set of brass knuckles and a blade putter. But don’t let the look fool you: The weight ring in back—one of 14 customizable features that yield literally a million combinations—provides what one seeks from a mallet: stability and consistency. The grooved face plate can be built in an array of lofts, too.

  • low
    Feels smart: I like how they took a traditional mallet and made it feel more contemporary.
  • mid
    It felt really balanced in my hands.
  • high
    The sound and the performance don’t mesh but this is the best performing putter that I’ve hit so far.
