Never CompromiseNow Playing: Never Compromise
The Never Compromise company left nothing out when they thought up the new GM2 (Gray Matter) mallet ($200). The technology begins with the popular gray matter heel-toe weighting, an aluminum-milled body and an aluminum-infused weave face insert. This lightweight face not only helps displace weight, but also yields a softer, more responsive feel.

However, the GM2’s most prominent feature is the ability to alter the putter’s weight in the heel and toe regions by as much as 50 grams. By way of a specially designed weight system, golfers can adjust the putter to varying green speeds and styles.

Aluminum Body
The structure of the GM2 Exchange is made of strong, lightweight aluminum. This nearly ideal material allows for significant amounts of weight to be manipulated in different areas of the clubhead.

Weight Options
The GM2 Exchange series putters offer golfers the ability to alter the headweight of each club by as much as 50 grams. Every model contains adjustable weights that increase by five-gram increments, each of which can be moved to different locations in the heel and toe areas of the clubhead to provide significantly different feels and performance.

Unique Insert
An aluminum-infused composite weave face insert provides enhanced feel and distance control.

The movable weights are housed within compartments in the heel and toe areas of the sole. Players can see which weights are inside via the unique soleplates.

Alignment Aid
Unlike a lot of modern designs, the GM2 doesn’t confuse with busy designs. Instead there’s one simple alignment aid.  

Wrench It
The GM2 Exchange series features a unique sole weighting system that requires the use of a specially designed wrench. Simply remove and customize at will.

Cart Bags
It’s hard to believe that when golf carts were first introduced, you needed a note from your doctor to use one. The year was 1952, and the concept of driving on a golf course was as foreign as using a Segway today. Still, it didn’t take long for the idea to catch on, in large part because of President Eisenhower; images of him cruising around Thunderbird Golf Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on his three-wheeled personal cart captivated golfers who bemoaned their long hikes around the golf course.

These days, cart bags—largely disregarded as something you throw onto the back of your cart—have changed the way manufacturers think about those boring old club-holders.
