    The prototype putters that Adam Scott and a number of other PGA TOUR pros have put into play over the last few weeks are now coming to retail as part of Scotty Cameron’s new Phantom X putter line. The Phantom X putter line – consisting of nine different models – are made with milled 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum faces and 303 stainless steel bodies with “enhanced vibration dampening” technology for better feel.

    Within the Phantom X line are five different head models and different shaft options. As for the head models, there’s a Phantom X 5, 6, 7, 8 and 12 that have a mid-bend shaft. There’s also a 5.5, 7.5 and an 8.5 that have the same head shapes as their full number counterparts, except the 0.5 heads have a low-bend shaft that produces more toe flow to promote an arc in the stroke, according to Titleist. Then, there’s a 6STR model that has the head shape of the 6, except the 6STR has a straight shaft with no offset.

    Each of the putter heads has two stainless steel toe weights, and they have been anodized black with a misted finish. For alignment on the top of the putters are Scotty’s familiar three-dots, except these are double-milled with neon yellow interiors with a ring of silver-colored aluminum. There are also options for a few different toplines instead of the sight dots, including a topline that stretches the length of the crown, a wider topline, and a “vanishing” top line.

    Here’s a brief description of each putter head, from Titleist.

    Phantom X 5

    “The evolution of this Tour-proven wingback mallet with a single mid-bend shaft continues with a solid aluminum face anodized in black that extends back into the stepped down flange, framed by misted stainless steel. Three milled topline sight dots painted neon yellow and framed with polished aluminum provide simple but effective alignment to the sweet spot.”Phantom X 5.5

    “A face balanced mallet with a single mid-bend shaft provides distinct alignment cues, with two long neon yellow sight lines milled into the stepped down flange, framing three milled sight dots on the misted black anodized topline. Customizable sole weights increase MOI and stability through the stroke.”Phantom X 6STR

    “A single mid-bend-shafted, near-face balanced setup, Phantom X 7 features a heel-to-toe tapered aluminum face that is sculpted into a raised center flange for a continuous, connected surface from the leading edge all the way back. Framed by stepped down, angular stainless steel components, the Phantom X7 combines the benefits of long flange sight lines with a semi-traditional topline for easy horizontal and vertical alignment at setup. Also available in a left-handed model.”Phantom X 7.5

    “Inspired by touring professionals seeking a putter with simple visual cues and a continuous transition from leading edge through the back flange, the Phantom X 8 is a sleek, near-face balanced mallet with a single mid-bend shaft. Milled sight dots and neon yellow sight lines perfectly frame the golf ball for seamless alignment without distractions.”Phantom X 8.5

    “With swept-back wings precision milled from 303 stainless steel, this near-face balanced, high-MOI mallet with a single mid-bend shaft employs the continuous alignment features of the Phantom X line’s full leading-edge-to-flange construction – crafted from aircraft grade aluminum, anodized black and accented with neon yellow sight cues. The ultimate in technology, stability and forgiveness.”

    The new Phantom X putters comes with a Pistlero Plus grip in cement gray with black paintfill, which is made to be less-tapered on the low hand. They will sell for $429 each starting on April 12.
