Scotty Cameron will add two more putters to their already impressive range when the new Concept X creations hit the market later in 2018.
When it comes to making high-class putters, Scotty Cameron are up there with the very best and the Concept X range—featuring the CX-01 and CX-02 putters—are set to enhance that reputation further still.
Once again, Scotty Cameron are pushing the boundaries when it comes to technology as they look to help golfers hole more putts and have a better feel on the putting greens—and the Concept X putters certainly have that capability in spades.
The CX-01 and CX-02 are both blades produced in an attractive stealth grey colour scheme with a black face. They have been in the prototype stage for some time before being honed into the finished product that is to be released in September 2018.
What Scotty Cameron are promising is that purchasers will get a Tour-standard product that has the forgiveness everyday golfers need from their flat stick.
How have they done that?
In the simplest way, by creating two blade putters in design which have the playability of a mallet. Based on the design of the popular Newport 2 blade, they have achieved the mallet-like feel by widening the putter and positioning weights in the sole of the head to provide the perfect weight and balance to suit your game.
The heel and toe weights in both putters are completely customisable and can be removed to create the perfectly balanced putter.
The difference in design between the CX-01 and CX-02 is not huge, but they offer two options to suit the preferences of golfers. The CX-01 has a “Nuckle Neck”, similar to a plumbing neck on other putters, on the shaft to allow the weight to move to the wings of the putter.
The CX-02, meanwhile, has a “Joint Neck” with a slightly different angle to it to help promote a tow flow with the weight located at the perimeter. The CX-02 therefore suits an arc putting stroke. It is the light weight necks on both designs that help to create the additional overall weight associated with a mallet.
“Concept X is for the player who wants the feel and performance of a Tour-proven blade, but wants to benefit from the last technology to achieve more forgiveness,” says Scotty Cameron.
The construction of the Concept X putters has been cleverly thought out to produce sound and feel that golfers will love. Scotty Cameron have come up with a new dual-zone vibration dampening system in the face of the putter as well as the sole, with those zones separated by a band of stainless steel.
The mid-milled aluminium face and inlay, meanwhile, help give a soft feel off the putter head and also produce that dreamy sound and feel.
The Scotty Cameron Concept X putters won’t be made in huge numbers given they have the prototype look and feel to them. They will also cost a pretty penny to buy. But if you are looking for a high-class performing blade with the added forgiveness of a mallet, then the CX-01 and CX-02 Scotty Cameron Concept X putters are definitely worth considering.
