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

I found 3 innovations in the new Scotty Cameron Futura putters:

  1. Multi-material technology – featuring wrap-around face-sole constructions milled from lightweight 6061 aircraft grade aluminum, integrated with precision-milled 303 stainless steel – moves weight back and to the perimeter, allowing for larger putter heads with enhanced High-MOI performance. These multi-material, high-MOI designs combine with the heel-and-toe sole weighting technology to increase stability and forgiveness.
  2. A built-in vibration dampening system connects the mid-milled face-sole component to the stainless steel frame of each model, producing a responsive feel and feedback.
  3. Enhanced alignment options – including milled topline sight lines, dual-purpose alignment (5W, 5S, 6M, 7M), new pop-through visual cues, rail alignment features and bright lines framing the sweet spot – provide added confidence at address.

The new Scotty Cameron Futura putter features advanced stability weighting with two removable, customizable stainless steel sole weights, stepless steel shafts and supple Black Matador Mid-size grips with red and gold accents.

For me, the enhanced alignment options and the advanced stability weighting are the real innovations in the new Scotty Cameron Futura putters.
