It is so annoying when you miss the par just because of awkward putting. This is why I am more interested in putters and short game practices. So let’s see what and how can the new Scotty Cameron Concept X putters (CX-01 and CX-02) help us.
Do you remember my post about the Cameron & Crown Newport 2 putter? If you like the design of the Newport 2 design, then you can be happy.
The new Scotty Cameron Concept X putters are blending the visual characteristics of a Newport 2 with the playability of a mallet through boundary-pushing design techniques and technologies.
Scotty Cameron summarized in the following way the benefits of the new Scotty Cameron X putters:
“Concept X is for the player who wants the feel and performance of a Tour-proven blade style putter but wants to benefit from the latest technology to achieve more forgiveness. What’s unique about these putters is that they’re fast looking and high-tech. But by making them wider, they’re more forgiving. You get a calm feeling like when you play a mallet. So, you get the best of a blade and the best of a mallet in one.”
As I understood the difference between the two versions (CX-01 and CX-02) of the new Scotty Cameron X putters is the neck configuration:
- Concept X – CX-01 integrates a revamped Nuckle Neck configuration that provides one shaft of offset in a familiar plumbing neck setup. Toe hang is similar to that of a Newport or Newport 2.
- Concept X – CX-02 is designed with a completely new low slant Joint Neck that provides one shaft of offset and promotes slightly more toe flow than the CX-01 – similar to a Newport 2.5.
2 interesting innovations in the new Scotty Cameron X putters
- The new dual-zone vibration dampening chambers: integrated into the face-sole construction offer precisely tuned sound and feel by separating each “chamber” with a band of stainless steel. See the picture above.
- High-MOI design: with a unique wing shape design allows for weight to be strategically moved toward the perimeter and ask far back and out as possible, increasing MOI and forgiveness. Customizable, removable heel and toe weights enhance stability while increasing the face’s sweet spot.
