TAYLORMADE TP COLLECTION JUNO
www.taylormadegolf.com Head weight: 345g
Grip: Standard Lamkin rubber or OS SuperStroke Toe hang: Moderate
TECH: Skim-milling and a tour satin finish give a really crisp appearance at address, while new 45° face grooves and a 6061 aluminium face insert ensure putts skid less.
WE SAY: TaylorMade blade putters have never had quite the same success on Tour – or in club golfers’ hands – as their Spider designs. But it doesn’t stop them trying. These models are all cast and then skim milled, so you get a very sharp, clean appearance at address. It also means the putter doesn’t need to be painted, so you get a top quality look and finish. We loved the new Lamkin grip; its pistol shape with sharp edges, traditional size and a flat front drew plenty of compliments, making it really easy to tell when the face was square.
VERDICT: Though the Juno is beautifully made, if you sat it down among a line of blades it would struggle to stand out. A slightly lower price is reflective of the head not being 100% milled. But if we’re honest most golfers would struggle to feel the difference.
