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.

What irons do you play? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the irons that they currently play. WRXer ‘Vater’ asks members which brand they have in the bag and why, and you can see the results so far after 189 survey participants.

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.

  • Vater: “I use Titleist 718 AP1s because they cost less new than some used clubs, haha. In all seriousness, I love the quality overall, and specifically, I was looking for a set with a good GW – and most of all, I wanted to play a 4 iron again, and the 4 and 5 irons in the 718 AP1s are beastly.”
  • aadadams: “I use Taylormade Speedblades for about the last 6 years, they still work great for my game, and I don’t see a change in the near future.”
  • Celebros: “Cobra Forged Tour.”
  • jholz: “I am Cleveland, but towards the latter end of the glory days – CG7 Tours. About as good a club as money can buy. Wish I could find some CG7 Tour Concepts!”
  • gripandrip: “Srixon 745’s. Most likely may be looking to the ZX7 as a possible replacement. Love my Srixon irons.”
