Last week we discussed what rumors we had heard about the new Nike 2012 equipment line. That included hints that there would be two new additions to the Method putter line, including the Method Drone used by Suzann Petterssen, and one other putter that was likely a mallet.
Now we have a sneak peek at the other Method putter called the Method Concept. It’s a double bend, face balanced mallet that is difficult to describe. The Method C1 incorporates a lightweight alumninum face with a high-mass steel body to place the center of gravity further back and lower, which should produce a faster roll while giving players maximum stability. Basically what you are getting is the appearance of a blade, but the benefits of a very large mallet.
You’ve got to handle it to Nike for raising the bar.
