  • PXG unveils 11 milled insert putters with TPE technology

Parson's Xtreme Golf's Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) technology was initially designed to fill the hollow cavity of the 0311 iron. Working directly with a high-strength maraging steel face insert, PXG designers found that TPE not only improved sound and feel but also kept the ultra-thin face from deforming at impact, producing an efficient energy transfer that resulted in higher ball speeds.

Golfers will never have to worry about caving in the face of a putter, but over the course of the last year, PXG found that TPE could be beneficial to the flat stick as well. 

Following the introduction of a putter line last year that was precision-milled from 303 stainless steel, PXG rolled out a line of insert putters that incorporate the same TPE iron technology in a slightly different manner. 

"One of the ways people judge putters is through impact sensation, how it feels coming off the face," said PXG chief product officer Brad Schweigert. "We realized through the development of the irons that the TPE technology plays a big part in improving feel — it helps take away any of the inherent vibrations and makes the putter feel very solid."

Each putter features a hollow cavity that's filled with TPE and sits right behind a 304 stainless steel face insert. When the TPE and face insert are combined, the putter produces a "soft, solid feel" at impact, and helps with consistency across the entire face. 

"For me, I wanted something that felt soft but the ball didn't come off soft," said TOUR winner Billy Horschel, who switched to the insert version of the Mustang earlier this season in Phoenix. "I wanted to still have it come off with the same speed that I'm accustomed to. I can feel the face, meaning if I just miss it off the toe, I can tell the difference between a center strike and a mis-hit.

The TPE thickness is 0.150 inches on all models, with exception of the Gunboat mallet that has a TPE core that runs the entire length of the putter head.

The bodies are milled from 303 stainless steel and aircraft-grade aluminum, and come with adjustable weight ports on the flange that move the head weight up or down with the help of titanium and tungsten screws. The weights also serve another purpose as easy alignment aids.

PXG's new milled insert putter line comes in 11 different models in both chrome and black color schemes.

Here's a look at the putter models that are available:

Dagger: An old-school, classic blade with no offset and a straight toe-down hang angle. The Dagger is best suited for players with an open-to-close arc-style stroke.

Dagger C: A center-shafted version of the Dagger blade with zero offset. The Dagger C is face balanced and a good option for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Brandon: A modern blade-style putter with plumber’s neck hosel that creates a full-shaft of offset and mid-hang angle. The Brandon is a very versatile design and a great option for a wide array of stroke types.

Brandon S: A face balance version of the Brandon with a single-bend shaft that creates a full shaft of offset. The Brandon S is best suited for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Brandon H: A heel shafted version of the Brandon with a full shaft of offset and a straight toe-down hang angle. The Brandon H is best suited for players with an open-to-close arc-style stroke.

Mustang: A unique, high MOI blade-style design that features extreme heel-toe weighting. The Mustang with plumber’s neck hosel that creates a full-shaft of offset and mid-hang angle.  This versatile design is a great option for a wide array of stroke types.

Mustang S: A face balance version of the Mustang with a single-bend shaft that creates a full shaft of offset. The Mustang S is best suited for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Mustang C: A center-shafted version of the Mustang with zero offset.  The Mustang C is face balanced and a good option for players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.

Gunboat: A modern, extremely high MOI mallet-style putter with a single-bend shaft that creates a full-shaft of offset and a face-balanced hang angle. The Gunboat is available in both 370 gram and 400 gram weighted versions. The heavier option is optimal for players using a counter balanced grip. The Gunboat is best suited for players with a straight-back-straight-through putting stroke.

Drone: A modern, high MOI mallet-style putter with a single-bend shaft that creates a full-shaft of offset and a face-balanced hang angle. The Drone is best suited for players with a straight-back-straight-through putting stroke.

Drone C: A center-shafted version of the Drone mallet with zero offset. The Drone C is face balanced and a good option for those players with a straight-back-straight-through stroke.
