Grip: Lamkin Sink RND 11 Toe hang: Face Bal­anced

TECH: The ‘fanged’ de­sign in­creases MOI to aid sta­bil­ity on ev­ery stroke. For­give­ness is in­creased by a two-piece hol­low head con­struc­tion which al­lows the CG to be po­si­tioned ac­cu­rately to en­cour­age putts to skid less and roll sooner while also max­imis­ing sta­bil­ity.

WE SAY: Benross fea­tured among our favourite put­ters of 2016 as they of­fered a de­cent prod­uct at an af­ford­able price. But while last year’s Casino put­ters started at less than US$77 a pop, 2017’s Tribe will set you back close to US$128. And that’s a big in­crease in a year. The Tribe’s fanged head may look sim­i­lar to Odyssey’s #7, which was in­volved in our test, but thanks to its hol­low head de­liv­er­ing a higher pitched im­pact sound, per­for­mance against the pre­mium brands was very dif­fer­ent.

VER­DICT: We un­der­stand many golfers don’t have US$320 to spend on a new put­ter. If US$128 is your top bud­get, the MDJ2 should be on your short­list.
