Putters sometimes get noticed more for what people see on the outside. However, it's the materials and structures inside the clubhead and grip that are the game-changers on Nike's new Method Converge.
Each of the four head styles uses a proprietary resin polymer ("RZN") between the face and back to improve how the ball rolls. The company says the polymer material can control sidespin on off-center strikes so toe and heel misses come off the face consistently straighter.
Even more intriguing is what's inside the grip. On the Nike's 35- and 38-inch counterbalanced models (called CounterFlex), a 75-gram weight can be shifted within the 15-inch grip to let golfers adjust how much counterbalance they want.
There are four models in the series, with standard designs ($170) available in May and the CounterFlex ($230) available in June.
