Singapore: New Scotty Cameron Futura X7 and X7M putters utilise innovative face-sole core technology with advanced perimeter weighting to increase stability and forgiveness throughout the stroke, while providing easy alignment and a soft, sure feel.
Futura X7 and X7M are the next evolution of Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron’s Tour-proven Futura X line, a putter family defined by modern contours that deliver high-MOI performance – resistance to twisting during the stroke – through advanced perimeter weighting.
“The motivation behind Futura X always has been to help golfers make a more stable, more balanced, more consistent, more confident stroke,” Cameron said. “We’ve enhanced those benefits with X7 and X7M through larger, multi-material constructions that make alignment simple. For the golfer, that translates into higher MOI for stability, a bigger sweet spot for forgiveness, easier alignment for a more confident set-up, and a better, softer feel.”
Futura X7 is a large, modern wingback mallet (approximately 10 per cent larger than the Futura X5) with horizontal and vertical sight lines, while Futura X7M offers a unique pop-through bar-back mallet design for additional MOI and stability. (The ‘M’ in X7M stands for ‘MOI’.)
Futura X7M Dual Balance combines the X7M head style with Tour-proven Dual Balance technology for maximum stability in a non-anchored stroke.
Each Futura X7 model features a lightweight aluminium face-sole core surrounded by a stainless steel frame. This multi-material construction delivers improved MOI for stability and forgiveness, while producing the softest sound and feel in the Futura X family.
“The key feature is the two materials,” Cameron said. “Basically there are two constructions involved here. The feel and sound of the lightweight midsection are married together with the heavier surrounding heel, toe and back to be more forgiving, for better performance.”
Available in stores from October 23, Futura X7 and X7M models are currently in the bags of many players across the worldwide professional Tours, including Jason Dufner, Brendon De Jonge, Zac Blair and An Byeong-hun, who recently won on the Korean PGA Tour trusting a Futura X7M model.
