WHAT IT DOES: The grooves across the face vary in width and depth to help putts roll more consistently in distance and direction. The key to the design is how the grooves start out wider and get narrower toward the heel and toe. The increased contact area away from the center directs more energy toward the ball for tighter distance control, and that pattern creates a slight V-shape to redirect heel and toe mis-hits back toward the target.
WHY WE LIKE IT: There are six possible hosels for each putterhead (easily adjustable at a fitting and any time thereafter). Each creates a different degree of toe hang to better match each individual stroke. Just as practical is the “midlock” grip that simplifies the armlock specs and, more importantly, the armlock stroke.

“The attention to detail oozes class. The two small aiming dots, the exposed screws and even the grip made every roll optimal.”
"Liked the soft material and delivered a lightweright feel in the hands. My strokes really smooothed out with this. The flat front part of the grip settled nicely in the hands and kept hand movement to a minimum. The two indistinguishable dots on the topline believe it or not really helped with alignment."
"Love the white grip and the feel of it. It has placees where you can hold the putter in your hands. Feels very balanced in your hands. Love the alignment line and how clean it is. The ball just rolls off the face pure on every putt. I feel like I can see every gyration of the ball. It's very forgiving as well, even if the face is not squared up."
