www.piret­tigolf.com Head­weight: 375g Grip: Piretti stan­dard Toe hang: Slight

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.
