Features Abound In Scotty Cameron Futura Putters

Titleist’s Scotty Cameron has long been one of the leaders in putters and innovation. His Futura line focuses on enhancements in feel, alignment, and true roll to inspire the confidence to make more putts. Each putter in the line has similar features and those that make them unique. Here’s what you need to know about the Futura putters.

Similar Features In Futura Putters

The Futura putters range from a mid-mallet to a larger mallet. All of the putters use a multi-material construction to achieve high MOI and forgiveness. The main body of each model is made of 303 Stainless Steel. The steel’s brushed look give an elegant look to the putters. Cameron pairs a lightweight 6061 aircraft aluminum face sole with the stainless steel. The lighter material wraps from the face to the sole, placing more weight on the perimeter of the club. Scotty’s signature sole weights are found in each model as well. The weights vary in size depending on the putter length to optimize feel. 20-gram weights are in the 33-inch putter. Weight increases by 5 grams with each added inch to the putter. The mid-milled face-sole is connected to the stainless steel frame with a vibration dampening system,  producing a soft, responsive feel.

Futura Putter Models: Distinct Features

Futura 5CB

The Futura 5CB is a mid-mallet featuring a “cavity back” feature on the crown. The black-colored cavity contrasts with the stainless steel, aiding with ailignment.

Futura 5MB

A rounded, mid-mallet “muscle back,” the Futura 5MB has a clean look. Cameron says this model is a strong contender for his favorite Futura putter. A single sight-line atop the crown is the lone alignment tool on the putter.

Futura 5W

Wing-like flanges “fly” behind the face of the mid-mallet Futura 5W. Besides their looks, the “wings” increase the MOI and forgiveness of the putter. The familiar looking Futura 5W is designed as an evolution of the Futura X5. For alignment, Cameron uses contrasting white lines and black background, framing the ball at address.

Futura 5S

Cameron puts a straight shaft that is slightly back from center in the Futura 5S. The putter is almost face-balanced and is a compact version of the Futura 7M. A bar across the back connects the “wings” to complete the mallet look.

Futura 6M

The Futura 6M takes its design cues from the Futura X and X7. Along with the sole weights are 2 weight ports, located on top and in the back of the putter. Each top port holds 2 10-gram weights, significantly increasing the MOI. The 6M is the most forgiving model in the Futura line. A 38-inch, dual-balance version of the 6M is also available. This model adds more weight, further stabilizing the putter throughout the stroke.

Futura 7M

The last putter in the Futura line is the 7M. Don’t be fooled by its resemblance to the Futura X7M. Cameron gives the 7M the same forgiveness and alignment ease as the X7M with some updates. The design of the 7M features sleeker “wings,” allowing more weight to be placed in the improved “bar-back” area. Doing this gives the 7M more forgiveness. The longer, white alignment aids frame the ball perfectly at address.

Summary

As you can see, all of the design elements in the Futura putters have the same goal, make more putts. Put one in your bag and see first hand how it improves your game.
