Does the Futura X5 Dual Balance as shown in the attachment have a steel face?

I think the 2017 version of the X5 shows a darker color and material for the face? Am I right? This model must be the 2015 or 2016?


Help me decide if you think the X5 or the Golo 7 would be more forgiving and why?

Are both have steel faces and sound the same?

Do not have a chance to demo these and wanted to see if anyone has hit these models whether you have the dual balance version or not.

PingPoncho,

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 X5 more resistant to twist during the stroke, possible due to the wings and size. I wouldn't say that the 7 twists easily or even something to be concerned with.  

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.
