So the Putter Shoot Out is official however we will be doing this one a little different. We will have a whole bunch of putters involved in this and we will get real world quotes from the 16 testers that will be trying them all out.
Testers
4 Teaching Professionals (0 or better)
4 Low Handicap (0-8)
4 Mid Handicap (9-16)
4 High Handicap (16+)

Putters

SeeMore - Both cast and milled line will be represented.
Nike - Nike OZ and Nike will be represented.
RIFE - 2 Bar Hybrid Blade
GEL - Paul Hurrion Line
Callaway - Sabertooth
Goode - Milled Blade
Slotline - 385 Blade and a Mallet
Cleveland - Blade & Mallet
Never Compromise - New X-Ray
Taylormade - Kia Ma & New TM Putter
Nickent - Tour Proto Blades
Scotty Cameron - Kombi
Mizuno - 1 Blade and 1 Mallet
Sunset Beach - Blade Custom
Machine - 2 Putters
Heavy Putter - Mid Weight

We have 5 more companies we are awaiting feedback from, but we hope to have a few more in that lineup.

This will be done differently like I said. We will not have rankings, but they will be broken down by handicap group and it will be more about how each putter worked for individuals rather than just overall results, because we understand how putters are different for everybody.

I'm really excited for this, I'm a putter ho, I'm going to make myself a huge putter collection :D


But I've personally never heard of the Never Compromise X-Ray, let alone seen it, could anyone point me in the direction of a picture or something? Thanks in advance.

Wow thanks RS I may check it out. Though I'm still contemplating ordering a 2-ball i-black series direct from Callaway, my pro thinks my current putter is too upright.

Really? THey are owned by Cleveland and Srixon. The Xray is not out yet, but will be soon. JB Holmes used it this weekend and had 25 putts in 18 holes.

They will not be in US Stores this year it does not look like. US Distributor is not the best we have seen. We will have an article on this coming up soon.

Oh no, I've heard of Never Compromise, infact I used to game one, but I was just asking about the X-Ray, I've never heard of it, or seen it. I was just curious to see what it looked like, I loved my old Never Compromise, great feel off the face.

It would be nice if they would send you a black carbon and a c-series; because those 2 putters are signifigantly different.
The black carbon has a face insert, whereas the c-seres does not.
I really like my C-06. IMO, its every bit as good as any Scotty Cameron and better than any Odyssey.

We have requested that each company decide which putters to submit. With a maximum of 3. So we shall see.

WSE,
Since we are a board of honesty, here goes. Titleist declined the invitation on this. So since we have a Kombi here, it will be used.
