A first look for you guys.  Was revealed to the Tour today at Northern Trust Open.  Grabbed it and shot photos just outside TaylorMade Tour van.

First, good pics. Very cool to see a new club asap. I do wish they'd have the alignment aid go all the way to the face though. Why stop before it'd actually get to the ball? Face milling always interested me. Do the grooves actually affect the ball or like on drivers are purely for show? I'd think the big grooves like on the Nike's would have an effect, but the small milled ones?

Saying all that, I've never been a putter aficionado. To me, blade putters are like wedges and blade irons, they nearly all look identical. I've been gaming my Vicino happily since I got it after my clubs were stolen 4-5 years ago. Whenever I go into GolfTown I'll spend time playing with the putters, but none have come close to making me want to 'upgrade'. However, the putter with the round head is different, and if I ever find one to test I could see myself buying it on the spot. Looks different, which I like, and the math could very easily prove it a legitimate improvement.

This is a proto oiler3535 so I am sure there are variations available for the tour.  

As for milling on face - yes, it affects feel and sound. Generally deeper milled grooves result in a softer feel while shallower ones give a former feel.  

For example, Tiger likes a "click" so has finer milling on face while Rory has wider and deeper grooves for a softer feel.
