PXG introduces high-MOI, adjustable Operator putter

Published

on

Joining the Drone and Gunboat on the high-MOI mallet-style putter end of the spectrum, PXG is launching its highest MOI putter to date: the Operator.

With a maximum head mass of 400 grams, depending on weight adjustments, the Operator features a soft billet-milled 304 stainless steel face and a body made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum.

PXG made the Operator for those seeking advanced customization and maximum forgiveness. Multiple sole weights, available in increments of 2.5g, 5g, 10g, 15g and 20g, can be used to adjust the overall head mass.

Regarding the name: “Operator” is the specific term for Delta’s operational personnel, although in recent years it has become a term for almost all U.S. military special forces.

The putter is available in three models.

Operator

The double-bend hosel style creates a full shaft of offset with a face-balanced hang angle. Built for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Operator H

The hosel neck is heel-shafted with a half shaft of offset and mid toe-down hang angle. Built for players with more face rotation in their stroke.

Operator P

The plumber’s neck shaft creates a full shaft of offset with a slightly toe-down hang angle. Built for players with a moderate amount of face rotation in their stroke.

All Operator models feature PXG’s proprietary TPE honeycomb sole insert and a TPE insert behind the face to dampen vibrations and enhance feel.

$450 retail.

    Why do these guys always make claims they can’t back up? Maltby had a much bigger and higher MOI putter about 10 years ago. It was about the size of a pie pan and weighed a ton.

    Why aren’t they telling us what the MOI is of the putter?

    It must not be very impressive.

      When you got a big black putter hanging there in your hands MOI is irrelevant… it’s biig !!

    Surprised that this thing only cost $450, figured it would cost at least $750.

      May 18, 2018 at 1:26 pm

      With sales tax it cost me $495…. and it’s worth twice that with all the action I get on the greens with the ball going into the hole.. 😮

    I don’t understand PXG’s theme for putters. When you look at their drivers, hybrids, irons, etc… they all look great at address. Clean and simple.

    Then you get to the putters – screws everywhere, funky designs. Not exactly easy to look at. I don’t get it. I’m all for the tech and the screw-weighting, just don’t understand why it’s visible at address on the putters.

    Those wings don’t resemble a spider at all.

    Corny, ugly. Pretty much the same as the rest of PXG’s gear.

    Probably putts well, though.

      Wicked looking and it frightens my playing buddies with their impotent Scotty’s, Betti’s, other’s …. it the biggest baddest black tool around and I got it …!!!

Jimmy Walker spotted testing a Titleist prototype driver?

Published

on

As spotted by GolfWRX Forum Member “anthony007,” Jimmy Walker was shown on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive hitting an unidentified driver at the Warrior Open.

In anthony007’s forum post, along with the photo, he asks the question “Is this a new Driver from Titleist?”

Well, it’s hard to tell from the grainy photo exactly what the driver says on the sole. But then Jimmy Walker himself posted on Twitter saying: “Great catch! Its always fun to test new prototypes and the [Titleist on Tour] guys have given me some cool toys to play with that are incredible – but unfortunately I can’t talk about them yet!”

While the response is a bit cryptic, it does seem that Walker confirms he was indeed testing a Titleist prototype driver.

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
