Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance putter

Published

on

Scotty Cameron has released a new version of the putter Adam Scott used to win the Masters, the Futura X Dual Balance.

The aptly named Dual Balance has a heavier-than-standard 400-gram putter head than is balanced with a 50-gram weight in the butt section of the grip. The combination of this, the putter’s 38-inch length and it’s 15-inch grip reduces hand action for a smoother, more stable stroke, according to the company.

“We’ve found, through our last 20 years of high speed video research with tour players, that the best putters in the world point the butt of their putter at their midsection throughout the putting stroke,” said Titleist Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron “From address, to the backstroke, at impact and through the forward stroke – the butt of the putter remains pointed to about the same 1- or 2-inch circle in their belly area.

“With Futura X Dual Balance, the goal was to slow down the butt end of the putter and keep it stable. If you have quick hands, drag the butt away, or you struggle to make a consistent stroke with a conventional putter, Futura X Dual Balance is a great option.”

The putter has a “Frozen Titanium” finish that helps reduce glare, two black sightlines and red cherry-dot weights in the sole and balance bar. The mid-milled face texture draws a crisp sound from the aluminum face and body.

The Futura X Dual Balance gains perimeter stability from four stainless heel-toe weights in the head. The weights include two 20-gram weights on the rear balance bar and two 10-gram sole weights in the front corners of the putter.

“That rear balance bar allows us to add considerable weight a fairly long distance away from the shaft axis, which is really what drives the high MOI,” Cameron said. “Can you get it too far back weighted? Absolutely. We put the balance point so it sets well and maximizes the MOI and the resistance to twist at impact on off-center hits.”

The standard length of Dual Balance is 38 inches, three inches longer than the standard length of a conventional putter. This is to keep the 50-gram weight above the golfer’s hands while putting. The large diameter Cameron Flat Front Winn grip has a colored section at the top that indicates the proper hand placement at 35 inches. The 15-inch grip length also allows for multiple hand placement options, depending on the player’s preference.

    I understand that the Futura X Dual Balance has a “Circle T” edition or so called the “Tour” edition, can someone kindly help me to understand the difference between the standard Futura X Dual Balance and the “Circle T” edition. Also, I heard the “Circle T” edition can only be purchased by tour/pro players, is that true? Thank you

    Can anyone tell me if the weight is connected to the grip or can you change the grip? Is the weight glued in to the but of the club?

      Hi Curt,
      For you, and or others yet to figure this out, the weight is in the shaft; not the grip. It is glued in (metal to metal) and requires a heat gun to melt glue and provide some expansion to the shaft. It will pull out with pliers (if you are extending or shortening the shaft). Otherwise, go ahead and rip of the grip and replace it with one of your own choosing. Cheers, Maxi

    Ok was at the PGA superstore yesterday and had to actually hit it this time .. I paced off 40 feet ..got back and lined it up..1st ball sleight pull one ft passed ..18 inches left ..the next 6 balls ..two lip outs and four no more than a foot left or right.. then took a newport for 6 balls ..the putter face felt like it was drifting around a bit..1st three balls were one foot left .. 4th ball lipped the left side of the cup..last two balls also left of cup about a foot.. hit 6 more with the duel balance and same result as the first time ..just throwing darts.. to me the black newports feel great..solid, quiet an soft ..the duel balance feels a little clicky however I could see why Adam hits one ,the whole putter swing feels like your on a track..very grounded and locked in..I’m going back this week end to hit 4 and 10 footers for about 30 minutes and compare with my newport.. only concern is that I hit a 33 and its a 38 inch putter and kinda brushes my shirt a little.. wish they made this in a 35 like the tm daddy long legs… its $100 more than my newport but after my full session with both we’ll see who wins the gunfight.. winner gets bagged.

    I tried this in a local shop and it was money. Like all the putters I try in the shop, of course. But I’ve got belly’s, fat SuperStrokes, thin Super Strokes, Heavy Putters, mallets, etc. This thing was as solid down the line as anything I’ve ever tried. At US$399, it better be.

    It’s a guarantee. If you spend $300+ for a Scottie Cammerson putter, it will improve your game…..for about 3 months

    I’m in Australia and bought this putter the other day. It has helped my putting a lot as i was always stuttery and all over the place but now i am holing a few and the ones i miss have more or less lipped out. Very happy!

    The big thing is lack of twisting on off center hits. I feel this is almost as important as anchoring. Without the back stabilizer bar the putter would be very hard to use. You can see Adam Scott bounce the ball off the putter head and there is no twisting. Make putting more of a skill and limit depth of putter. More blade type.

      the distance control with off center hits is pretty amazing also!

    I got this putter about a month ago and my putting has improved dramatically since. it forces you into good tempo and the face stays pretty neutral throughout the stroke. I can’t wait to get more rounds in with it. I’ve only had 3 3 putts in 4 rounds since getting this. That for me is a major improvement

    Cartoon frog looking back at you when you putt? Could be just me. I’m sure this will be very stable though. The heavy weight putters will benefit from no insert to keep the impact feel alive. I know I’ll be trying one.

    Saw this in a shop a couple of days ago and it looked sick! I’m in Australia and it was over $500 retail so it would want to work!
