It’s official: The much-anticipated retail return of Never Compromise begins on May 22 with the release of its new Never Compromise X-Ray putters, a.k.a. NCX-RAY putters. The street price is $149.
The X-Ray putters are already a familiar sight on the PGA Tour, where seven professionals put them into play at the recent Zurich Classic, including J.B. Holmes and Steve Marino. V.J. Singh has also made the switch to an X-Ray putter. You first heard about these putters here at PutterZone.com back in January.
Out of 13 mallet putters recently tested by Hot Stix for Golf Magazine, the Never Compromise X-Ray mallet was the putter that lost the least distance roll on putts struck toward the toe and heel compared to the center. Such high MOI performance was achieved by using an “ultra-lightweight” face material, allowing Never Compromise to relocate 25 percent of the head weight to the extremities.
The NCX-RAY putters get their name from their translucent dual-density face insert, which employs horizontal ribs embedded in a softer composite material to provide “ultimate dampening yet responsive feedback.”
The four models are the Alpha, Beta and Sigma mallets, as well as the Tau blade.
With the X-Ray putters, Never Compromise appears to have turned up the volume on aesthetics and technology while taking their price down a notch, making them a good fit for these value-oriented times.
