SCOTTY CAMERON SE­LECT NEW­PORT 2 NOTCHBACK

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

www.titleist.com Head­weight: Change­able de­pend­ing on length

Grip: Red Mata­dor Mid­size Toe hang: Slight

TECH: Pre­ci­sion-milled in the USA from soft 303 steel to max­imise feel and re­spon­sive­ness. A float­ing in­sert and wider notchback help raise MOI, which means a higher re­sis­tance to twist­ing.

WE SAY: Proof, if you need it, that blades don’t just suit arc­ing strokes. Cameron has clev­erly come up with a single bend shaft, which does away with the plumber’s neck you usu­ally get on a blade. It means you get less toe hang and opens up the Notchback to be­ing much more friendly for less arc­ing strokes. Two of our testers ab­so­lutely loved the con­cept and thought they could im­me­di­ately slide the Notchback straight into play. As you’d ex­pect, feel and roll is fan­tas­tic, and a worth­while ad­di­tion is the ‘notch’ which helps raise MOI higher than you’d typ­i­cally find with a blade.

VER­DICT: If you love the look of blade, but don’t have the stroke to get the best out of one, this could be right up your street. If you gen­er­ate half as much con­fi­dence as we did with it, you’ll be over the moon.
