PREVIEW: Nike Method Converge putter with CounterFlex weighting


SHARE THIS STORY

Nike Golf is looking to take the next step in counter-balanced putter weighting by letting the player take more control.

With its CounterFlex technology, found in a newly released Method Converge putter, Nike engineers have created a system that give the player the choice to slide a 75-gram weight anywhere up and down a small shaft screwed inside a 15-inch, specially created grip.

Nike engineers were motivated to make the change when their research indicated that less than one-third of golfers putt at their best when a counter-balanced weight is placed at the butt end. By giving the player a choice to move the weight closer to the head, Nike is hoping players can better tap into the benefits of a counter-balanced weighting, creating a better tempo to the stroke.



The Nike Counterflex collection has two head models -- an Anser-style and a semi-mallet -- and is available now for $229.
