BASINGSTOKE, Hants. (20 January, 2016) – TaylorMade Golf Company today announced the release of the new OS & OS CB putters, a larger, high moment of inertial (MOI) design exhibiting an expanded sweet spot and improved alignment system. The latest in putter stability innovation from TaylorMade Golf comes in both OS and CB designations. The OS models feature slightly larger head sizes than traditional putters while also delivering higher moment of inertia. For players seeking even more stability, the OS CB models are even larger in size, deliver higher moment of inertia and feature counterbalance technology to stabilize and smooth the putting stroke.
First introduced to TaylorMade Tour staffers last November, OS (shown above) & OS CB (shown below) putters are available in one of three styles: Daytona blade, Monte Carlo mallet, and a newly-designed Spider Mallet featuring square trailing weight pads and a newly styled front blade. The three models are additionally distinguished by three distinct toe hang angles for a variety of putting styles. The Daytona hangs at 36°, the Monte Carlo at 20° and the Spider, face balanced (no toe hang).
Featuring a raised contrasting red sight line, the OS putters are easier to align than traditional blade putters and feature a new deep-milled 6061 aluminium insert. To take the insert to the next level, engineers vertically milled the aluminium insert to reduce backspin for better roll performance and promote a softer feel at impact.
Aesthetically, two of the three models feature skim-milled surfaces (Daytona and Monte Carlo) that deliver true edges and sharp lines for an even more premium look, feel and finish.
“With the OS putters, we’ve combined thin wall casting technology with a high contrast sight line system for improved alignment in a more stable offering,” said Clay Long, TaylorMade’s Director of Putter Product Creation. “Everything we do is aimed at making the player better, and in this case, it’s delivering a product line that allows golfers to make more putts.”
