How does Titleist’s new multi-material technology bring surprises?

By: January 27, 2016

It seems like this week I talk more about putters than as usual. The reason behind this that I found a couple of putters (e.g. Ping TR 1966 Anser putter) that are interesting from a technology point of view.  So, here comes Titleist’s new Scotty Cameron Select putters.

What are the innovations in the new Scotty Cameron Select putters?

Titleist extended the methodology of their proven multi-material technology to include new stainless steel inlays for blades, as well as aluminum inlays for the mid-mallet models.

The new face inlays are presented in 3 unique setups to complement each putter shape and size:

  1. Select Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 models: they are modern heel-and-toe weighted blades designed to support flowing strokes. Each model features a sole-to-topline 303 stainless steel inlay. This fusion of materials provides golfers with a responsive feel and feedback at impact.
  2. Select Newport 2 Notchback – a slightly larger, angular modern blade with a notched flange – features a sole-to-topline 6061 aircraft grade aluminum inlay anodized in gunmetal gray.
  3. Select Newport M1 and Newport M2 mid-mallets combine a 6061 aircraft grade aluminum inlay with Scotty’s face-sole pop-through technology. The face-sole is a single piece of lightweight aluminum that comprises the face inlay. This construction concentrates weight on the perimeter to produce higher MOI and stability for “straight back/straight through” strokes.

Each new Scotty Cameron Select putter features advanced stability weighting with 2, customizable stainless steel heel-toe weights, stepless steel shafts, and supple Red Matador Mid-size grips developed to offer the comfort of a larger grip while maintaining responsiveness and feel (Newport 2 Notchback DB employs a 15-inch Dual Balance grip).
