PXG introduces Lydia Ko-inspired “Bat Attack” putter

Published

on

Is there a more popular putter design in recent years than the mallet with “wings”? PXG is the next company to introduce its version of the design.

The “Bat Attack,” equipped with what PXG calls heavy-weighted, heel-toe wings, has a milled face insert and the company’s TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) in its core. According to the company, it’s inspired by Lydia Ko, the No. 1 female golfer in the world.

“The putter’s signature wings are set exactly a golf ball width apart and are designed to assist with alignment and support a high MOI,” says PXG.

The heads are built with aircraft-grade aluminum bodies, 304 stainless-steel faces and TPE face inserts. The overall design is made for greater forgiveness across the face. There are three weight options, including 350-, 375- and 400-gram heads; the 350-gram head has wings that are made from stainless steel, while the 375 and 400 gram heads use high-density tungsten.

    No doubt it’s a fine putter with a similar shape so she can aim it correctly – I’m not in love with PXG’s face insert – let’s say it’s not my favorite as it has a light feel off the ball, but it works.

    1) Take Odyssey #7

    2) epoxy some rivets on it

    3) Charge $550

    4) profit?

    HUGE Lydia Ko fan here. pretty sure she has a 14 club deal with PXG and is using this Bat Attack putter because she is can’t use the 2 ball. She struggled with her putting so much she even went back to the two-ball a couple weeks ago but it seems that can’t be a long term solution. Wish she had a 13 club contract so she could use the Taylormade spider tour that everyone seems to be using these days, thanks to Jason Day.

      Yeah Jason Day sure is lighting it up

      She could switch back if her performance truly suffers. Parsons wouldn’t force that 14th club to achieve that it wouldn’t accomplish anything.

Longest hybrid of 2021? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been taking a deep dive into the latest hybrids. WRXer ‘Russian7’ kicks off the discussion saying

“Anyone compare or hit G425, SIM, RadSpeed or Tsi to compare? I am dying to find something that can replace my Jetspeed 3 hybrid, but after all these years, there is nothing as long as it that I’ve found, but I would really like something new that looks a lot better but performs the same as my jet speed. I was looking at the G425 possibly..”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Jwin323: “Callaway Super hybrid.”
  • JoeFrigo: “Like mentioned above, if you’re looking for flat out distance, nothing will beat the Callaway super hybrid, and it’s not close. But for 2021 release I’m seeing some impressive numbers with the PXG Proto hybrid. Sim2 Rescue is a close 2nd. Ultimately PXG was surprisingly very forgiving for the profile, and it’s honestly my favorite club to hit at the moment.”
  • Drivingrangehero: “Tour Edge Exotics C721. They picked up where Adams left off, in my opinion.”
  • Hollywoodtlb: “Got fit into the G425 17 degree with tour shaft x-stiff and was hitting bombs with it. Never hit any 3 wood or hybrid straighter. Obviously when I get it, I’ll go back to hitting awful, but I’m very excited to get it. Gets off the ground very easily.”
