Putter Review – Nike Mod Putter
Nike is going “old school” and giving a shout-out to the modern classics with its latest putter collection. The new line is called “Mod”, short for modern. There will be four putters to choose from, all featuring the familiar, classic look of all-time favorites.
The modern classics will retain the looks of their original designs while showcasing the up-graded technology of Nike’s Polymetal Groove Technology. Nike has taken the all steel head and milled grooves in the face of the putter. The grooves are then filled with a polymer insert. The polymer acts as a dampening device from vibrations made at impact, translating into a soft feel. The steel head creates an audible feedback to aid with distance and speed control. Grooves are implemented in the putter to promote a forward rolling putt with no skidding or skipping.
The Mod-00 is a traditional mallet design. This putter is face-balanced and will have zero degrees of toe-hang. The Mod-30 is a heel-to-toe blade and will have thirty degrees of toe-hang. The Mod-60 is a mid-mallet and will have sixty degrees of toe-hang. The Mod-90 is a blade and will have ninety degrees of toe-hang.
All putters are available in 33, 34 and 35 inches. The 34 and 35 inch putters will weigh 345 grams while the 33 inch putter will weigh 360 grams. There are two weights in each putter, located in the heel and toe. Weights have been placed in the head to create stability throughout the stroke. The weights will remain fixed in the head, not to be removed.
As you can tell, Nike has a putter to match all putting strokes, while maintaining the looks of modern classics that are sure to appeal to all golfers.
