BENROSS TRIBE MDJ2
www.benrossgolf.com Headweight: 370g
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.
