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.

      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.

    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 …!!!

Mizuno announces new JPX 919 Tour Forged irons are coming August 29 (via cryptic Twitter post)

Published

on

While cryptic, it does appear Mizuno is announcing via Twitter that its new JPX 919 Tour irons are coming on 8/29/18. One would have to assume that means they will be launched on 8/29, not actually hitting retail on 8/29, but that remains to be seen.

We recently spotted a number of new irons on the USGA conforming list, including the JPX919 Tour irons pictured above, JPX919 Forged and JPX919 Hot Metal irons from Mizuno. So it’s likely that the JPX 919 Tour Forged irons won’t be alone in the JPX 919 family when they hit retail.

The JPX 919 Tour iron specifically pictured in the Tweet above seems to be the replacement for Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons that Brooks Koepka used to win this year’s U.S. Open and PGA Championship. Learn more about the original JPX 900 Tour design from Mizuno’s Chris Voshal on our Gear Dive podcast.

Diving a bit deeper into the picture from Mizuno’s Tweet, it appears the JPX919 Tour irons will utilize Mizuno’s familiar Grain Flow forging, and will be made from 1025E; that’s based on the hosel stamping that says “GF Forged HD 1025E.”

Stay tuned for more info from Mizuno.
