Scotty’s New Fu­tura Put­ters

High per­for­mance mal­lets with en­hanced for­give­ness and sta­bil­ity

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GEARGUIDE -

The new line of Scotty Cameron Fu­tura put­ters of­fers seven high per­for­mance mal­let-style mod­els that pro­vide golfers at ev­ery level of the game with sta­ble, for­giv­ing put­ter set­ups. From rounded mid­mal­lets to high-tech, high-MOI larger mal­lets, the 2017 Fu­tura fam­ily melds the best de­sign char­ac­ter­is­tics of the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion GOLO and Fu­tura X lines with Scotty Cameron’s con­tin­ued in­no­va­tion in multi-ma­te­rial put­ter con­struc­tions. The re­sult is a co­he­sive line-up of tour-proven shapes and con­fig­u­ra­tions (higher num­bers in­di­cate larger sizes) – Fu­tura 5CB, 5MB, 5W and 5S; Fu­tura 6M and 6M Dual Bal­ance; and Fu­tura 7M – with en­hanced sta­bil­ity and for­give­ness, im­proved align­ment fea­tures, and re­spon­sive feel and feed­back.

Scotty had this to say about the new line-up, “This new Fu­tura line blends my ideas about high-per­for­mance put­ter de­signs with my long­stand­ing ideals that high-tech should al­ways be high­qual­ity. What we’ve pi­o­neered with our multi-ma­te­rial tech­nol­ogy al­lows me to de­sign prop­erly weighted larger put­ter heads for more sta­ble set­ups to give

mal­let play­ers more con­fi­dence over putts. Fans of the brand may re­mem­ber the orig­i­nal Fu­tura put­ter re­leased over a dozen years ago, which was viewed as an ex­per­i­men­tal de­sign that then went on to be trusted to sev­eral ti­tles.

It’s this fo­cus on mak­ing put­ters for the best play­ers in the game that drives me to con­tinue to in­no­vate, ex­per­i­ment and push the bound­aries of what we of­fer to all ded­i­cated golfers. Sim­i­lar to the world of mo­tor­sport, what we prove on Sun­days on the world­wide pro­fes­sional golf tours goes into ev­ery put­ter we bring to mar­ket. The Fu­tura name val­i­dates the decades of de­sign per­for­mance my team and I bring to the high-tech put­ter mar­ket and cel­e­brates that early in­no­va­tion stand­ing the test of time.”

Fea­tures

•Multi-ma­te­rial tech­nol­ogy – fea­tur­ing wrap-around face-sole con­struc­tions milled from lightweight 6061 air­craft grade alu­minium, in­te­grated with pre­ci­sion-milled 303 stain­less steel – moves weight back and to the perime­ter, al­low­ing for larger put­ter heads with en­hanced High-MOI per­for­mance (re­sis­tance to twist­ing dur­ing the stroke). These mul­ti­ma­te­rial, high-MOI de­signs com­bine with Scotty’s tour-proven heel-and-toe sole weight­ing tech­nol­ogy to in­crease sta­bil­ity and for­give­ness.

•A built-in vi­bra­tion damp­en­ing sys­tem con­nects the mid-milled face-sole com­po­nent to the stain­less steel frame of each model, pro­duc­ing a re­spon­sive feel and feed­back that Scotty de­scribes as “soft, but solid.”

•En­hanced align­ment op­tions – in­clud­ing milled topline sight lines, dual-pur­pose align­ment (5W, 5S, 6M, 7M), new pop-through vis­ual cues, rail align­ment fea­tures and bright lines fram­ing the sweet spot – pro­vide added con­fi­dence at ad­dress.

Scotty gave the Fu­tura line’s raw stain­less steel sur­faces a Sil­ver Mist fin­ish with a unique bead blast for a ra­di­ant yet glare-re­sis­tant ap­pear­ance. All alu­minium sole plates have been an­odized in black. Ad­di­tion­ally, the Tour-in­spired cos­met­ics dis­play the fa­mil­iar three bright translu­cent red dots in the back cav­ity with en­graved ty­pog­ra­phy be­fit­ting this mod­ern, high-per­for­mance line.
