Scotty Cameron Reveals New Phantom X Putter
Making a new addition to the 2019 Phantom X family, renowned manufacturer Scotty Cameron has revealed the Phantom X 12.5, which has been designed to provide golfers with a stable mallet putter with greater toe flow and a fresh alignment option.
Available in Titleist authorised golf shops from February 14th, 2020, Phantom X 12.5 joins a cohesive Phantom X family that now includes 10 modern mallet designs built around five different head styles. Phantom X 12.5 provides golfers with a new setup option – featuring a low-bend shaft configuration and a tour-inspired single milled sight line – built around the family’s flagship model, the high-MOI Phantom X 12. For a sense of what you can expect, see Golfshake's Ryan Rastall test and review the Phantom X 7.
Like every putter in the lineup, the Phantom X 12.5 incorporates Scotty’s tour-inspired, multi-material construction methodology of combining 303 stainless steel and 6061 aircraft-grade aluminium for increased MOI, optimal weight distribution, forgiveness, improved sound and responsive feedback.
QUOTING MASTER PUTTER MAKER SCOTTY CAMERON
“Every time we introduce a new putter line, I receive requests from tour players and dedicated golfers for additional setups and configurations. Phantom X 12.5 is the result of some of those requests. I added the low-bend shaft for extra toe flow and also designed a new alignment option by milling a single sight line down the center painted black for a very clean look from address. It really sets up nicely. Adding this new model also gave me the opportunity to make a left-handed version designed so everyone can take advantage of the performance benefits of the Phantom X 12.5.”
PHANTOM X 12.5 PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGY
• LOW-BEND SHAFT CONFIGURATION: The Phantom X 12.5 has a stepless steel shaft with one shaft of offset and a single “low-bend” designed to aim directly down the target line and promote an arc path for more toe flow in the putting stroke.
• TOUR-INSPIRED ALIGNMENT: Addressing requests from tour players and dedicated golfers alike, Scotty added a continuous, single center sight line milled from the leading edge to the back of the flange – painted gloss black – offering a new alignment feature for the Phantom X line.
• LEFT-HANDED MODEL: Adding a new configuration to the family, the Phantom X 12.5 is also available for left-handed players.
• MULTI-MATERIAL HEAD WITH SOLID FACE TECHNOLOGY: The Phantom X 12.5 mallet is constructed with a standard-milled, 6061 aircraft aluminium face anodised black that extends back and through the flange area surrounded by heavier 303 stainless steel wings for high-MOI and stability.
PHANTOM X WEIGHTING & GRIP
New Phantom X 12.5 putters feature the line’s advanced stability weighting with two, customisable stainless steel heel-toe weights and stepless steel shafts, as well as the Pistolero Plus grip in cement grEy with gloss black paintfill.
FINISH & GRAPHICS
The Phantom X 12.5 model’s aircraft grade aluminium components have been anodised black in a misted finish that helps to reduce sun glare. The stainless steel putter head components have also been misted for a radiant yet glare resistant appearance. The single milled sight line, painted gloss black, provides a subtle tone-on-tone visual alignment guide.
Scotty Cameron Phantom X 12.5 putters will be available in North America on December 12th, 2019, and worldwide on February 14th, 2020 in Titleist authorised golf shops. SRP: £399
