Exotics David Glod Tour Proto
Company founder and master designer David Glod designed these putters to be milled from stainless steel for the utmost in feel and balance. The traditional shapes have been tweaked to reflect the Exotics line, most noticeably with the Multi-Level X-Grip face pattern that gently grips the ball to help promote a better, more immediate initial roll. Multiple styles available.

Bettinardi/Mizuno Black Carbon Series
Master putter designer Bob Bettinardi designed the Black Carbon Series putters with a “Feel Impact Technology” face insert that lessens face contact with the ball at impact and gives off a responsive feel. The glare-resistant black finish and signature honeycomb face exude craftsmanship. Multiple head models and shaft options are available.

Odyssey Black Series i
By combining a carbon-steel body with a heavier tungsten flange, the new Black Series i from Odyssey also has a multilayer face insert for better feel and a higher MOI. All this technology tends to get overwhelming on paper, but the putter actually represents a clean, classic appearance. The Black Series i proves you can have a high-tech putter that looks and feels like a classic milled one. A variety of styles are available, including the popular 2-Ball.

What does “CNC-milled” mean?
The “CNC” in CNC-milled stands for Computer Numerical Control—a fancy way of saying the milling tool is done to exact specifications under the watchful control of a computer.

Carbon steel or stainless steel?
The general consensus is that carbon steel is softer than stainless steel. So if you want more of a buttery feel, try carbon steel. For a firmer, more responsive touch, give a stainless-steel model a go.
