Scotty Cameron has added a new teardrop-shaped, heel-shafted mid-mallet to his Select line of putters , with the introduction of the Select Newport 3.
Select putters blend precision-milled craftsmanship with advanced multi-material constructions and face inlay technology.
The heel-shafted mid-mallet, based on the classic Newport head shape, is designed with a flow neck (with three-quarter-inch offset) for players that need maximum toe flow in their stroke.
Multi-material technology, featuring a precision-milled, lightweight 6061 aircraft grade aluminum face inlay fused to the precision-milled 303 stainless steel body, distributes weight for higher MOI. This multi-material design combines with heel-and-toe sole weighting technology to increase stability and forgiveness throughout the stroke.
A built-in vibration dampening system connects the milled aluminum face inlay with the stainless steel body for a responsive feel and feedback.
“Fans of our classic, heel-shafted mallets like the Del Mar 3.5 and the GOLO 3 will love the melt-into-the-ground, flowing lines of the Newport 3,” said Cameron.
“When you look at the entire Select family, the Newport 3 is the perfect, curvy small mallet that just fits in conceptually between the Newport 2 Notchback and the mallets,” he said.
“We’ve extended the methodology of our proven multi-material technology to include the aircraft grade aluminum inlay, which allows me to design more of the weight into the sculpted back flange, as well as get the sweet feel the inlay produces. The result is an extension to the Select family that pulls together the entire line,” he added
The Newport 3 features advanced stability weighting with two removable, customizable stainless steel heel-toe weights, a stepless steel shaft engineered for flex and performance, and a Red Matador mid-size grip developed to offer the comfort of a larger grip while maintaining responsiveness and feel.
Select putters come with a raw stainless steel finish called Silver Mist, which involves a glass bead blast for a glare-resistant, appearance. Additionally, the graphics blend the familiar three bright red translucent “cherry bombs” with engraved typography that represents this line.
Scotty Cameron Futura
The new line of Scotty Cameron Futura putters offers seven mallet-style models.
From rounded mid-mallets to high-tech, high-MOI larger mallets, the 2017 Futura family melds design characteristics of the previous generation GOLO and Futura X lines with new Scotty Cameron innovation in multi-material putter constructions.
The result is a lineup of various shapes and configurations, the Futura 5CB, 5MB, 5W and 5S, Futura 6M and 6M Dual Balance and Futura 7M.
The multi-material technology features 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 high-MOI.
These multi-material, high-MOI designs combine with Scotty Cameron’s heel-and-toe sole weighting technology to increase stability and forgiveness.
A built-in vibration dampening system connects the mid-milled face-sole component to the stainless steel frame of each model, producing a feel and feedback described as “soft, but solid,” by Scotty Cameron.
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 frame the sweet spot to provide added confidence at address.
“This new Futura line blends my ideas about high-performance putter designs, with my longstanding ideals that high-tech should always be high-quality. What we’ve pioneered with our multi-material technology allows me to design properly-weighted larger putter heads for more stable setups to give mallet players more confidence over putts,” said Cameron.
The new Futura models are identified by shape and size using a five, six and seven numbering system. Higher numbers indicate larger sizes.
Futura 5CB and Futura 5MB are elegant, rounded mid-mallets that blend Cameron’s decades long design aesthetic theme that a putter “should melt into the ground” with multi-material face-sole technology. Futura 5CB “cavity back” features a pop-through black anodized 6061 aircraft aluminum flange plate and single milled sight line on the topline. The Futura 5MB “muscle back” features a refined, rounded 303 stainless steel back flange with a Silver Mist finish and a single milled sight line.
Futura 5W and Futura 5S build upon the popular aspects of the prior generation Futura X5 and Futura X7M models. The Futura 5W (“W” for wing) is shaped similarly to the Futura X5, but now has full wrap-around, multi-material face-sole technology and enhanced dual purpose alignment features that frame the ball and aligns the sweet spot with white flange lines placed parallel to each wing. The Futura 5S (“S” for straight shaft) is a more compact and stylistically updated version of Futura X7M with a straight shaft setup and dual-purpose alignment.
Inspired by Scotty’s work with Adam Scott, the Futura 6M (“M” for MOI) introduces MOI-enhancing traits of the original Futura X model in conjunction with design cues expressed in the Futura X7M, combining a pop-through “bar back” design with deep heel-toe weights for forgiveness and resistance to twisting at impact. A new Futura 6M Dual Balance model is also available for those players who need maximum stability in their stroke. Like all Dual Balance models, the Futura 6M DB has a 50-gram heavier head and a 50-gram counterweight in the grip end of the shaft.
The Futura 7M improves upon the Futura X7M with refined shaping of the back wings, including the stainless steel “bar back” that moves weight behind the putter face for added forgiveness, along with dual-purpose alignment.
Left-Handed options will be available in the Futura 5CB and Futura 6M models.
Each new 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 (Futura 6M DB employs a 15-inch Dual Balance grip) developed to offer the comfort of a larger grip while maintaining responsiveness and feel.
The Futura line’s raw stainless steel surfaces feature a Silver Mist finish with a unique bead blast for a glare-resistant appearance. All aluminum sole plates have been anodized in black. Additionally, the Tour-inspired cosmetics display the familiar three bright translucent red dots in the back cavity with engraved typography.
