CLEVELAND TFI 2135 ELEVADO
www.clevelandgolf.com Headweight: 370g
Grip: Lamkin TFi
Toe hang: Face balanced
TECH: Cleveland says 80% of golfers don’t have their eyes directly over the ball when putting. They reckon by raising the alignment aid to exactly half the size of a golf ball, they’ve created the most accurate aid ever.
WE SAY: Any MOI putter worth its salt comes with some sort of hollow body or “fanged” head design, as weight split between the fangs improves stability and forgiveness when putts are hit off-centre. The really clever bit of design, though, comes in blending those fangs into a design which isn’t distracting – and the Elevado does that in spades. It’s a really simple, straightforward matt black head with a single silver alignment stripe right at the same height as the centre of the ball. It’s a clever idea, and if you’re the type of golfer who struggles with aim, the Elevado is worth trying.
VERDICT: A very solid MOI putter and with a price tag under US$167 it won’t bust the bank. Thanks to the soft insert and polymer backer it feels good, and its circular groove tech has the capability to roll putts alongside the best.
