The Futura X line of Titleist Scotty Cameron putters is expanding.

The new models, the Futura X7, Futura X7M, and Futura X7M Dual Balance all feature a new combination of multiple materials in a familiar high-MOI design.

In the heart of the putter heads is an aluminum core that creates the sole and face. It is surrounded by a heavier stainless steel frame. The result is enhanced perimeter weighting to push the Moment of Inertia higher and create even more stability.  Between the two components are various dampening components to maintain the integrity of the sound and feel of the club head.

“The motivation behind Futura X always has been to help golfers make a more stable, more balanced, more consistent, more confident stroke,” Scotty Cameron said. “We’ve enhanced those benefits with X7 and X7M through larger, multi-material constructions that make alignment simple. For the golfer, that translates into higher MOI for stability, a bigger sweet spot for forgiveness, easier alignment for a more confident setup, and a better, softer feel.”

There are slight variances on the new designs.

The new Futura X7 is ten perfect larger than the Futura X5 model, resulting in a large, wingback mallet with multiple sight lines.

“The X7 is a line extension of the X5. It has the same head shape but larger,” Cameron said. “A lot of touring pros requested it be larger. The larger we make it, the more forgiving it becomes with a larger sweet spot. This also allows us to add more alignment lines. The more lines, the easier it is to line up the ball.”

A pop-through bar helps stabilize the Futura X7M. How much so?  A good hint is that the “M” stands for MOI.

“With X7M I wanted a round shape with a crisp and sharp look for alignment. X7 and X7M have a lot of the same features but the X7M is manipulated and made with a back weight for more MOI – thus the name, X7M, where the ‘M’ stands for MOI,” Cameron said. “Instead of having big ears and weights in the back, which some might call cumbersome, the bar on the back with the weights streamlines the shape. A few tour players also said shadowing on the course can sometimes affect sight lines, so on the X7M I raised the alignment lines and made them even longer.”

Lastly, just months away from the anchored stroke ban, the Futura X7M Dual Balance introduces even more stability in a counter-balanced design.

“The key feature is the two materials,” Cameron said about the new models. “Basically there are two constructions involved here. The feel and sound of the lightweight midsection are married together with the heavier surrounding heel, toe and back to be more forgiving, for better performance.”

“X7 and X7M are more forgiving, better sounding, better feeling and better performing products,” Cameron said. “What we are building today was not done five years ago. The technology, machinery and computers to design and the milling machines to create are limitless. Now it comes down to sound, feel and performance – and we’ve got it. The best players in the world are going to the X7 and X7M.”
