Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) has added a ninth head design to their Gen2 putter collection, introducing the Spitfire blade-style head.
The Spitfire begins with the base of a traditional blade, adding flared portion off the back corners of the flange to dramatically increase the moment of inertia (MOI) of the head.
The name of the putter is an homage to the British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force in the World War II era.
The head has multiple alignment aids to help putters of different styles feel comfortable picking a target. There are multiple angled surfaces pointing towards the front of the ball and a down the line to help promote confidence hitting on a starting line. There are pairs of parallel lines and perpendicular angles created to also get golfers into position to make a putt.
The Spitfire features the pyramid-shape face insert, which is designed to create friction with the ball cover and promote a more consistent roll and speed across the face.
The new model gives PXG fitters another option to offer golfers who are fit for putters in this series. In addition to the nine available heads, there are four hosel options -- double bend, plumber’s neck, heel-shafted or armlock – available. There are sole weights available -- 5g, 10g, 15g and 20g -- as well to dial in head weight and stroke bias.
The PXG Gen2 putters cost $425 each for the customized putter, with weight kits available ranging in price (and number of weights) starting at $30.
