Hello

My pro is offering me his futura 5W for next to nothing.

I love the way it looks and sets up.  Looking for some reviews.

I rotate a 2016 newport which I've lost confidence with and a EvnRoll ER5 which I make putts with but hate the look / sound / feel.

I love mine. Very easy to use, forgiving, and looks nice. I personally think that it likes a C/B grip.

I wasn't a fan unfortunately.  If you can get it for next to nothing, you might as well, they have good resale.

I agree with this.  I was instantly comfortable with it and the way it sets up behind the ball.  I feel it has helped me extend my "make" range and increased my confidence on the greens.  And I"m not a Scotty fanboy.  This is only my second one and I've been playing for over 40 yrs.  Its just a really good putter.

It is the only model that makes my current gamer anxious. It is very easy to align and prefer that look over the 7 odyssey. Buy it, and id you dont like it, i will buy it for the same price you got it. �

It's a great model for a nice, squared alignment. I like the mechanical looking straight edges of the putter. IMG_1524587993.448038.jpg

I like the looks of the 5W also the 5.5, but the 6M is so smooth. I wish the 5W had the shaft of the 5.5.

Just bought one yesterday... I don't have a SBST stroke, but went with this one over the 5.5 based purely on looks. A bit nervous about it.

Testing it out on 18 today, hopefully I don't regret it!
