I have to admit last summer when I saw Scotty at the 2013 ICC that when the discussion of dual balance putters came up my first reaction was, Scotty why are getting into this gimmick! Well, I stand corrected. I recently started putting with this putter when a friend loaned me one to try out and I have to admit (and I am already a fan of the Futura X) that the DB is fantastic. Smooth, stable and comfortable are words that describe this putter. If you get a chance, go down to your local golf store and check it out.
Here are a few things to keep in mind, per Scotty...you need at least 3 inches above your grip to the end of the club to ensure the proper feel and use of the club. There is a black line on the grip that is about 3.375 inches down from the top so it is a great reference mark for this application. Thus, if you are used to playing with a 35 inch putter a 38 inch DB putter (which is stock standard length) is what you may need, however I have found if you need a shorter or longer putter you may need to play with the weights in the head to get the right feel...I play with a longer putter and thus I have a 39 inch DB putter with lighter weights in the head. But please keep in mind that feel is obviously differrent for everyone so you may prefer a much heavier or lighter putter head than mine so experiment a little!
Have fun, thought I would just pass along this not often spoke about new gem!
