First Look: New Nike Method MOD putters
The new line of Method MOD putters ($299) are based on classic designs but with the addition of modern performance and Nike's polymetal groove technology. Each of the four new models are milled and weighted to length to guarantee the right feel. A range of weighting schemes that determine the amount of toe hang is also available to let the individual player fit the putter to their particular stroke. Options include face-balanced, 30-, 60-, and 90-degrees of toe hang. All models are available in 33, 34, and 35" lengths.
“We were able to take a range of classic designs and make them perform like modern putters,” says David Franklin, Nike Golf Master Modelmaker. “We incorporated Polymetal Groove technology, which allows athletes to lift the ball, launch it and turn it forward as quickly as possible for a truer roll. We removed weight from the center, placing it in the heel and toe instead for a lower and deeper center of gravity. It’s Nike’s interpretation on classic, familiar shapes.”
Nike Method MOD putters will be available November 1st.
