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.

          Keyboard warriors are destroying the very fibers of this country. Forum quality is diminishing as a result.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best ball for players with slower swing speeds?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ghoul31 who created a thread dedicated to finding the ideal golf ball for players with slower swing speeds. Our members have their say on what is the ball most suited to slower swing speeds, with a variety of models receiving a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Hogan9: “My SS is 80 to 85. I play the Titleist AVX. Many people on these forums tell it’s wrong for me. I’ve tried several brands and types over the last year ( Pro-V-1 and 1X, Cally Supersoft and Chrome Soft, TM TP5X, Wilson Duo Soft and the Snell MTB. The AVX gives me the best overall performance for my game. I’ve had to slightly adjust to how it reacts on chips and pitches, but the extra distance off the tee is well worth it. “
  • North Butte: “Maybe 90mph driver swing on a good day. Driver 205-ish hit 6-iron from 150. Pro V1x but I have played AVX, B330, TP5 with pretty much similar results to my favorite V1x. Also played the Chrome Soft for a while but it seemed to fly a little low and sometimes have trouble holding greens (or maybe I just didn’t give it a long enough chance to know for sure).”
  • Hat Trick: “Pro V1X – Spin and higher launch keeps it in the air longer, but at the same time that spin holds the greens – SS 96-98 mph.”
  • Kmac: “My SS is right around 95-100, and I find the QST to the perfect for my game. I will also play the AVX or Chrome Soft Truvis. But for the money, nothing beats the QST.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Single length irons stunting development?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rbark11 who has sparked an interesting debate over single length irons in our forums. Rbark11 has been playing single length irons for the past seven months, and he is concerned that he may have issues changing back to regular length irons. Our members give their take on the matter, as well as discussing single length irons in general.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mcs4: “No, it will not. Both my father and I are currently playing Cobra One Length irons after decades of playing variable length irons. It took both of us maybe a few rounds to feel comfortable with the switch. This weekend I played a round with my old irons, and it was different but not a big deal. My opinion is that there are pros and cons with each approach, but I don’t think picking one will make any particular negative impact on your ability to later switch to the other.”
  • Quadra: “I’ve played both. Right now I am back to VL clubs ( Wishon 560 irons). Find VL gives me more shot-making options. With uneven lies, especially with the ball above or below foot level, the shot seems easier with a more upright or flatter lie, rather than trying to manipulate a shot from clubs with only a single length/lie. VL = more shot possibilities.”
  • Aucaveman: “I played Cobra ftbo for a year. Shot my best scores ever. Our club switched to Mizuno exclusively, so I had my first real fitting. I switched to the 919 forged and had to sell the Cobras to fund the mizunos. Really wished I hadn’t. I really liked the Cobras. The shafts in the Mizuno’s are better suited for me but had I put the same shafts in the Cobras; I’d prob been better off. At some point, I’ll prob do it and go back to one lengths. I was perusing eBay yesterday actually.”
  • Brandons68: “I think that the consistency you gain from SL irons is pretty great. I have not played them personally, but have talked to several people that have, and they really like the feel of the irons and the fact that they swing every iron the same because they are all the same length.”
