Scotty Cameron has added a new model, the 12.5, to its Phantom X range of mallet putters.
Featuring a new low shaft-bend configuration and tour-inspired alignment, the putter is built around the Phantom X range's flagship 12 model, with the added tweaks serving to provide a more stable head with extra toe flow, that is easier to line up.
The Phantom X range was initially released last May, with mid-sized, high MOI mallets seeking to attract some blade-users with more forgiveness and a better sound and feel. We were big fans too, with reviewer Martin describing them as "the best mallet range Scotty Cameron has done to date."
Master Putter Maker Scotty Cameron commented:
Every time we introduce a new putter line, I receive requests from tour players and dedicated golfers for additional setups and configurations. Phantom X 12.5 is the result of some of those requests. I added the low-bend shaft for extra toe flow and also designed a new alignment option by milling a single sight line down the centre painted black for a very clean look from address.
It really sets up nicely. Adding this new model also gave me the opportunity to make a left-handed version designed so everyone can take advantage of the performance benefits of the Phantom X 12.5.
The Phantom X 12.5 has a stepless steel shaft, with one shaft's-worth of offset and a single 'low bend', designed to aim directly down the target line and produced more arc to the stroke for better release of the head and in particular, toe.
There's a single, continuous centre sight line which is milled from the leading edge to the back of the flange, and painted in gloss black, to offer an alternative alignment feature to the rest of the Phantom X collection.
The Scotty Cameron Phantom X 12.5 putters will be available in North America on 12th December this year, whereas everyone else will have to wait until February 14th next year. They currently have an SRP of £399.
