SC Futura X5 Dual Balance vs SC Dual Balance Golo 7 Putter
Posted 10 July 2018 - 11:06 PM
I don't know if you have moved on from this post, but I tried both models and went with the Golo 7.
I found that both:
- were the same preceived weight when hit.
- were 38" Dual Balanced.
- had a solid, steel face.
- gave good roll consistency at 4, 8, 12 feet. 20 feet was inconsist for each in my hands on the indoor green. Note: I demoed each at a different store.
- were used and in very good to excellent condition. Faces on each were nick/gouge free.
I found the "feel" of both to be similar, nothing drastically different. The mill pattern on the 7 was more pronounced. With respect to alignment and address, I found the ribbed insert with the alignment stripe to be confusing on the X5. The 7 has a single, easy alignment mark.
In the end, I found a used excellent condition Golo 7 dual balanced and bought it. I like the aesthetics of it more so than the X5, but performance wise, I didn't notice a marked difference based on my limited comparison evaluation. YMMV.
