Stay Focused – Go Green
According to Wikipedia “a putter is a club used in golf to make relatively short and low-speed strokes with the intention of rolling the ball into the hole from a short distance away.” Further explanation tells us, “The putter must be designed to give the golfer every technical advantage including smooth stroke, good glide, sweet impact, and bounce-less topspin ball launch as well as every technique advantage including perfect fit as to shaft angle and length.”
Club manufacturers have produced putters that range from big to small, blade to mallet, light to heavy, cast to milled and so on. Today’s putters are anything but run-of-the-mill.
With all of the advancements in the making of a putter the one thing a manufacturer can’t do is to help the golfer keep his eyes focused on the ball…or can they?
Back up to 2012 and meet Michael Dill, the founder of Mantis Golf. After analyzing thousands of putting strokes, Michael realized his eyes were focused on the putter head and not staying fixed on the ball.
What could be done to fix this problem? After much research and testing, Dill found that by using a muted green turf-like colored putter head, eye movement was significantly reduced. He introduced a green colored mallet putter with a white alignment line that is grooved into the top of the putter.
Mantis introduced a green blade putter late in 2013. Like the mallet, the blade has a solid feel and an appealing look.
Use of the Mantis “B” has proven that this is a quality product that delivers on its promise to keep your eyes on the ball.
The design elements of the Mantis putter instill confidence, facilitating a golfer’s ability to watch the ball, not the putter – leading to greater focus, concentration and putting results. The high MOI (moment of inertia) of the Mantis means it will twist less on a mis-hit, thus minimizing the effects of a mis-hit as the ball tracks toward the hole. The face-balanced design provides a quality of solid balance, and the soft polymer face and optimized head weight feel perfect.
Putting with the Mantis “B” just feels right and produces a “Ping” like sound with a solid, good feeling putt. The putter is also super forgiving on mis-hits. I’m sure this is also a testament to the putter head itself, because mis-hits are hard to produce with this putter.
Priced at $159.99, with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, this putter is definitely worth a try. For more information, visit the Mantis Golf web site at http://mantisgolfco.com
