Truss Me This Thing Works
Well, I have been looking forward to this review. This week I took the TaylorMade Truss Putter out to try. There is a lot of hype around this weird looking creature and I wanted to see whether it was worth a look.
It has been designed by the experts for players who desire the stability and forgiveness of a mallet but prefer a more traditional look at address, which is something I really liked about it. It was hard to look at at first when you take the cover of it but at address it looks great and really easy to align.
The ‘truss’ itself is a triangle shaped hosel which TaylorMade are referring to as a Stability Superstructure, designed to still look traditional from address, but provide much more stability when hitting a putt. On the face, TaylorMade has included the successful Pure Roll insert as in previous models however this model has adjustable sole weights in the heel allow for a range of different swing weights and CG placements.
They actually look great at address and feel great off the face, very soft and very quiet. They also don’t twist in your hands when you miss the centre, which also seemed to make my poor putts still roll well and online.
There are four different models available in the Truss putter range – the TB1 and TB2 are more traditional blade shapes, whereas the TM1 and TM2 are fang-shaped mallets. Both the TB2 and TM2 are centre-shafted putters which have hosel designs that stretch to the centre of the putter head for an even more standout look.
I loved them and I am sure you will too, come in and check them out and give them a roll.
See you next week,
