An exotic new putter is poised to turn a few heads and, according to its creators, sink more putts.
The MxV1 putter by MxV Golf features a ball-shaped Center Strike Technology face that is designed to provide truer roll and improved accuracy.
Says MxV Golf’s Brian Wittman, “By essentially striking a ball with another ball, you almost can’t miss the center of gravity. The radius of our putter face is exactly that of a standard golf ball, and even with a minor tolerance we have found more accurate strikes and optimal roll, time after time.”
According to Wittman, the concept was inspired by “Newton’s Cradle,” a popular desk toy that demonstrates conservation of momentum and energy via a series of swinging spheres.
The MxV1 features a 400-gram milled brass head with a black finish. It will be available in both center and offset shaft configurations, and will begin shipping in mid December.
Stay tuned for a PutterZone.com interview with Wittman, to be followed by a MxV1 putter review.
