The Acushnet Company says its new Scotty Cameron Futura X7 and X7M putters each utilize face-sole core technology with advanced perimeter weighting to increase stability and forgiveness throughout the stroke, while providing easy alignment and a soft, sure feel.
Futura X7 and X7M are the next evolution of Cameron’s popular Futura X line, a putter family defined by modern contours that deliver high-MOI (Moment of Inertia) performance – resistance to twisting during the stroke – through advanced perimeter weighting.
“The motivation behind Futura X always has been to help golfers make a more stable, more balanced, more consistent, more confident stroke,” Cameron said. “We’ve enhanced those benefits with X7 and X7M through larger, multi-material constructions that make alignment simple. For the golfer, that translates into higher MOI for stability, a bigger sweet spot for forgiveness, easier alignment for a more confident setup, and a better, softer feel.”
Futura X7 is a large, modern wingback mallet (approximately 10 percent larger than the Futura X5) with horizontal and vertical sight lines, while Futura X7M has a pop-through bar-back mallet design for additional MOI and stability. The “M” in X7M, by the way, stands for “MOI.’’
Each Futura X7 model features a lightweight aluminum face-sole core surrounded by a stainless steel frame. Cameron said this multi-material construction delivers improved MOI for stability and forgiveness, while producing the softest sound and feel in the Futura X family.
“The key feature is the two materials,” Cameron said. “Basically there are two constructions involved here. The feel and sound of the lightweight midsection are married together with the heavier surrounding heel, toe and back to be more forgiving, for better performance.”
Each putter will be available Oct. 23 at a suggested retail price of $410.
