The Ghost family continues to grow, as TaylorMade is set to roll out the new Ghost Manta putter starting in March. In the meantime, you can expect to see it on tour in the coming weeks.
The Ghost Manta is the latest entry in our ongoing preview of the PGA Merchandise show, which begins this week.
According to TaylorMade, “The neo-mallet-shaped Ghost Manta takes a very clean and classic Tour-proven look, along with an advanced and modern technology that often comes in a quirky head shape, and combines them into one comprehensive putter.”
Also: “The weighting system of two 50-gram tungsten weights and a third user-changeable weight in the back-center of the sole provides high MOI and stability.”
Based on those descriptions, it sounds like the Ghost Manta is aimed at golfers who seek the performance attributes of the popular Ghost Spider putter, but in a more conventional visual package.
The Manta also adds a new alignment twist to the white Ghost finish, with a wide-bodied head featuring two black rails on the crown. These rails frame the golf ball and contrast with the white top to help improve alignment and visibility.
The putter also features TaylorMade’s Pure Roll insert, which is designed to impart a smooth, accurate roll.
The cost of the TaylorMade Ghost Manta putter is $179 ($199 for belly putter versions). Look for it at your favorite golf retailer starting on March 23.
