Scotty Cameron’s new Futura X7 and Futura X7M putters are designed to deliver more stability and consistency on the putting green, with a multi-material construction that boosts the forgiveness of the putters.

[quote_box_center]“The motivation behind Futura X always has been to help golfers make a more stable, more balanced, more consistent, more confident stroke,” Scotty Cameron said in a Titleist press release. “We’ve enhanced those benefits with X7 and X7M through larger, multi-material constructions that make alignment simple. For the golfer, that translates into higher MOI for stability, a bigger sweet spot for forgiveness, easier alignment for a more confident setup, and a better, softer feel.”[/quote_box_center]

Golfers familiar with Cameron’s Futura X5 putter will notice that the X7 shares the same head shape, with the X7 being approximately 10 percent larger.

[quote_box_center]“The X7 is a line extension of the X5. It has the same head shape, but larger,” Cameron said. “A lot of touring pros requested it be larger. The larger we make it, the more forgiving it becomes with a larger sweet spot. This also allows us to add more alignment lines. The more lines, the easier it is to line up the ball.”[/quote_box_center]

What might go undetected, however, at least until golfers hit a putt with the X7, is the change in construction. The X7 uses what Cameron calls an “aluminum face-sole core,” which is surrounded by a stainless steel frame. Also, since the face of the X7 is made from aluminum, it will deliver a softer feel than the X5, which uses a 303 stainless steel putter face.

[quote_box_center]“The key feature is the two materials,” Cameron said. “Basically there are two constructions involved here. The feel and sound of the lightweight midsection are married together with the heavier surrounding heel, toe and back to be more forgiving, for better performance.”[/quote_box_center]

The X7M offers golfers a shape that resembles the X7, but adds what Cameron calls a “Bar-back design” that further boosts the MOI of the putter.

[quote_box_center]“With X7M, I wanted a round shape with a crisp and sharp look for alignment,” Cameron said. “X7 and X7M have a lot of the same features but the X7M is manipulated and made with a back weight for more MOI – thus the name, X7M, where the ‘M’ stands for MOI. Instead of having big ears and weights in the back [as in the Futura X], which some might call cumbersome, the bar on the back with the weights streamlines the shape. A few tour players also said shadowing on the course can sometimes affect sight lines, so on the X7M I raised the alignment lines and made them even longer.”[/quote_box_center]

The X7M is also available in a Dual Balance model, which uses a heavier head (400 grams) that is counterbalanced with a 15-inch grip and a 50-gram weight installed in the butt end of the putter.

    I got an X7m to try as a replacement for my Odessey Teron. I really like it. The face is not quite as soft as the Odyssey (but softer than my Newport) which I really like because I get more feedback. The Odessey feels a wee bit soft/mushy sometimes. My distance control with the X7M is fantastic. The Teron and X7M but have alignment aids out the wazoo which I like. I really feel like I have a chance to hole every putt. I don’t care about the designs origin one little bit; I care about improving my score and this putter feels great to me.

    Think Scotty must have run out of ideas! Blatant rip off, odyssey shape and he must of googled RAA 3D putter, they put the bar on the back way before and if you test them together on Quintic ALL the RAA putters out perform Cameron’s- FACT

    “Milled from a solid block of 303 Stainless Steel”… Oh wait, I see what you did here…

    Couldn’t Scotty have at least used a different number when stealing Odyssey’s #7 design?

    I tried them this past weekend. They’re pretty nice. I preferred the 7M. The insert isn’t bad, honestly.

    I have yet to meet someone who likes that insert. Not saying “nobody likes it”, just not a fan.
