TaylorMade Golf has announced the launch of its TP Reserve family of premium milled putters on Friday.
The company, which has a history of innovative putter technology, has expanded its reach in the putter design world with the new premium-milled clubs.
The TP Reserve family includes three classic blade shapes and three refined mallets. Each of the premium milled putters is a blend of precision, classic styling, and inspiring aesthetics, per the release.
The putters were constructed using soft 303 stainless steel, and with machined-in grooves on the face it reduces surface area which impacts the ball for a better sound and softer feel.
The face features fine linear mill marks and grooves to create an optimal sound. With grooves in the same linear fashion, TaylorMade claims it will maintain the same sound regardless of the location of impact.
Engineers of the TP Reserve putters at TaylorMade created four different fitting options for the new clubs.
Hosels included are L-Neck No. 1, Small Slant No. 3, Single Bend No. 7 and Flow Neck No. 9.
“There is a large bucket of golfers that love the look of a classic putter shape, and we took the time to carefully craft performance in a way that is a brand-new opportunity for us," said Bill Price, the senior director of product creation for putters and wedges at TaylorMade, in the release.
The B11 and B13 models have clean geometric shaping and precise edges which TaylorMade claims will help frame the ball. They have a thin machined top-line at 8mm, one less than the topline of the TP Juno cast putter. They also have a longer blade length.
The two models differ at the hosel with the B11 having a L-neck hosel while the B13 features a small slant hostel with 57 degrees of toe hang.
The B29 model features consistency with its inspiration coming from the TP Soto and features a flow neck hosel, while the B31 has been reinvented with material behind the centre shaved away for balanced wings on the heel and toe. The B31 features the same L-neck hosel as the B11.
The M21 and M27 models were inspired by the TP Bandon. TaylorMade claims these mallets will deliver high MOI performance.
The M33 and M37 have a round shape and is the only TP Reserve mallet with a sightline on top, along with two in the back cavity. Both have a 1mm thicker topline than the M21 & M27 models, as well.
M33 features a small slant hosel, and has the most toe hang at 33 degrees.
Finally, the M47 features the widest topline of the three TP Reserve mallets, while all the TP reserve mallets have a sole plate to help optimise both sound and feel.
All the models have three length options (33’’, 34’’ and 35’’) and have both right-handed and left-handed options.
The putters come with KBS 120 Chrome stepless shaft and Black Lamkin Deep Etched Pistol grip and come with a leather headcover.
TP Reserve will be available for pre-order beginning June 23 and at retail on August 18 with an RRP of £379.
