Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE - Head­weight: Change­able de­pend­ing on length

Grip: Red Mata­dor Mid­size Toe hang: Mod­er­ate

TECH: Pre­ci­sion-milled from soft 303 steel to max­imise feel and re­spon­sive­ness. A float­ing in­sert helps raise MOI which means a higher re­sis­tance to twist­ing.

WE SAY: Re­spect to Ping for in­vent­ing the Anser put­ter shape, but surely Scotty de­serves credit for com­ing up with the idea to pre­ci­sion CNC-mill such an iconic shape, too. The New­port 2 is one of his most cov­eted models, and we can see why. The head’s mod­er­ate toe hang will suit a stroke with a bit of ro­ta­tion and we felt the head bore a touch more weight, which we re­ally liked as it’s been said be­fore that Scot­tys can be a bit light for year-round use in the UK. A sim­ple single align­ment line fo­cuses at­ten­tion nicely.

VER­DICT: A top qual­ity put­ter which blade purists will adore. The float­ing in­sert is a worth­while re­fine­ment. If you must have the Rolex of put­ters you’ve just found it.
