Cleveland Gives New TFi 2135 Satin Putters A Face Lift

Published

on

Cleveland has launched its new TFi 2135 Satin putters that combine model-specific face milling with its familiar raised sightline to help golfers achieve better speed and alignment.

The original TFi 2135 putters used a raised sightline that was 21.35 millimeters off the ground, which is also the height of the equator of a golf ball. According to Cleveland, the technology helps golfers better align their putters, see their line more easily, and address the ball in the center of the putter more consistently. Here’s a video to explain how it works.

That “2135” technology is back again, but with a whole new look. Compared to the original TFi 2135 putters, the most noticeable difference is a new satin finish that has a greater contrast with the sightline. The milling on the face is where these putters have really changed, however, and why they’re built for better speed control.

MilledFace

As you can see in the image above, the milling lines are condensed near the center of the putter faces and spread out progressively as they move toward the toe and the heel. That’s to help the ball come off a bit faster when it’s struck off-center. Since fewer milling marks will create less friction, the ball will bounce off the face faster where the milling marks are more spread out.

But that’s not all.

Each separate head model — since they have a different moment of inertia (MOI, a measure of forgiveness) and a different center of gravity (CG) — has specially designed face milling. More specifically, the higher MOI models (re: mallets) have a more gradual variation of mill marks, while the lower MOI models (re: blades) have a more rapid variation. For golfers, this simply means more forgiveness on off-center strikes with each of the putters, hopefully leading to better consistency, speed control, and fewer three putts.

For the familiar soft feel of the TFi 2135 putters, Cleveland uses a TPU (thermoplastic urethane) insert to dampen vibrations at impact. This combines with three-times deeper milling on the face to create a softer feel then the original TFi 2135 putters and previous iterations of Cleveland putters.

Cleveland’s new TFi 2135 putters will be in stores September 15 in six different head models. The mallet and blade putters will sell for $149.99, and the counter-balanced putters (8.0 and Elevado CB) will sell for $179.99. The putters come stock with either a Lamkin TFi 2135 blue grip or a Cleveland Oversized grip. Cleveland Oversized Counterbalanced grips are also available for a $10 upcharge.

    In a world increasingly populated with $400.00 putters, I think that it is great that this line of putters will be selling for less than half that amount. I look forward to testing the Rho. I only wish that it had come with either a plumbers neck or flow neck. Alas! there are some limitations when one is charging less than half the other guys.

            Wrong.

            I’m a guy who rolled one at a GG and liked it. But yes, I’ve noticed that anyone here who likes these putters has been accused of working for Cleveland. That’s nice.

              Your original comment was about the price and the looks as reasons to buy it. Now you claiming you “rolled one” and you liked it. Sounds like a “doobie” putter… lol

          Anybody who calls golf clubs ‘sexy’ is confused and needs help but not for golf.

WRX Spotted at U.S. Open: Justin playing just Rosey with new TPT

Published

on

We are a little more than halfway through the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and so far the course is giving and taking as much as you would expect from a perfect setup by the USGA.

Taking the lead on Thursday and continuing to lurk into the weekend is Justin Rose. Since we have been paying close attention to his Honma golf bag all year, we noticed a shaft change in his Tour World driver.

We reached out to TPT to see if we could get an update on what Rose has put in play for what is often referred to as one of the toughest driving weeks of the year. Here’s the inside info

“Justin has put into play a TPT Golf 14 MKP-LT-SW shaft in his Honma driver. This shaft is a full 10 CPM ( Cycles per Minute ) stiffer than the 15 LKP-LT-SW shaft that he put in play at The Memorial after testing it that week. It’s also different in that it has a Mid Kick Point (MKP), where as the 15 LKP-LT-SW has a Low-Kick-Point (LKP) design.”

From a technical and fitting perspective (generally speaking) a lower kick point shaft will hit the ball higher with more spin compared to a mid or high kick point shaft if all other factors are equal. We don’t have access to his driver numbers but with the U.S. Open being played on what can always end up as a windy venue the theory would be that this change to the MKP is to help keep ball flight lower and more controlled — which will also be a benefit next month at the Open Championship.
