WIL­SON STAFF IN­FI­NITE SOUTH SIDE

Golf Asia - - GOLFING GEARGUIDE -

There aren’t too many put­ters avail­able nowa­days that don’t come with some sort of face tech that prom­ises im­prove­ment in ei­ther roll or dis­tance con­trol. We chose Wil­son’s In­fi­nite South Side as its CNC milled face en­sured a flat sur­face, but it also cru­cially made no claims about im­prov­ing roll or skid. No face grooves ob­vi­ously means less ball-on-put­ter face in­ter­ac­tion, as the South Side cre­ated 30% less top­spin than our test av­er­age, which was flat last bar the Ping. Sur­pris­ingly, though, putts skid­ded the least (tied with the Ping, Evn­roll and Taylormade). We’ve said be­fore here that great top­spin num­bers don’t alone mean a bet­ter putt, like more ball speed alone doesn’t just mean more driver dis­tance – it’s get­ting the right com­bi­na­tion of num­bers to stack up to gain in per­for­mance.
