TECH: A half-mallet design created from soft 11L17 carbon steel to ensure excellent feedback. Face balancing helps keep the face aimed at your target and a slight offset encourages a hands-aheadof-ball stroke.
WE SAY: Piretti are very much a boutique putter brand with big ambitions. Like most quality 100% CNC-milled putters they don’t come cheap, but they do use their own blend of carbon steel which they reckon improves feedback. There’s no getting away from the Firenze’s big size – some will say it’s too big. But if, like our pro who couldn’t stop holing putts with it, you’ll gain confidence from the excellent feel and forgiveness, we reckon its size will be very bearable.
VERDICT: It doesn’t happen very often, but we had to wrestle the Firenze putter out of our test pro’s hands at the end of the day! That’s how much he liked it. Most golfers will need to be similarly impressed to lay out US$448 for one. The Firenze is very simple, but every detail is executed to perfection to give a proper premium overall feel.
