Nike Golf’s new Method Core Drone putter will be released on November 1, 2011 and will be the first high MOI putter from the Method line.
The putter combines the polymetal groove technology in a high-Moment of Inertia (MOI) package. The large mallet head shape has milled face, with what looks like two balanced wings to help takeaway be consistent. The putter also features opti-mass weighting in the center but it is the “wings” that really separates this putter from any other Nike flatstick.
Since this is my first putter from the Method line, it took some getting used to the polymer and aluminum grooves. There’s less vibration, which I feel has led me to give it a little extra more umph. As I’ve only tested this out in my bedroom, since there is snow on the ground already (see pic), it’s difficult for me to give this a proper assessment on green-like conditions. However, the balance on the putting stroke is a noticeable improvement from my blade putters.
More feedback once the snow clears, but here are some in-hand pics of the putter.
