Classic Cameron Meets Modern Mallets With the New Phantom X Line
With the 2019 Phantom X family, Scotty Cameron has created his most technically advanced putter line to date. Phantom X replaces the Futura family of putters, advancing Cameron’s proven multi-material construction methodology. The combination of 303 stainless steel and 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum delivers increased MOI, optimal weight distribution, improved sound and responsive feedback.
The line is comprised of nine modern mallets based on five refined and streamlined head shapes. They feature low-bend, mid-bend and straight shaft set-ups, in addition to a variety of flange orientations and improved alignment cues. To maximize MOI, each Phantom X model incorporates multi-material construction featuring precision milled solid aluminum faces integrated with 303 stainless steel heads with enhanced vibration dampening technology.
According to Scotty Cameron, "The Phantom X is by far the most high tech putter line we’ve designed to date. This product is so much faster looking, and taken to the next level, that it needed a new name. It’s a major leap in performance."
Each Phantom X putter is a precision milled, multi-component mallet. These models are slightly more compact than their Futura predecessors with sleek, ground-hugging contours that angle away. They employ aluminum and steel components perfectly matched for optimal shape and weight distribution.
A variety of Tour-preferred set-ups offer alignment options, including continuous lines from the leading edge all the way back; simple sight dots; raised or stepped down flanges and wider or vanishing toplines. Alignment features have been accentuated with longer, racing-inspired lines and triple-milled sight dots highlighted in neon yellow paint to frame the golf ball at address.
Three shaft options—low-bend, mid-bend and straight—are offered across the line. Phantom X models with “.5” in the name (i.e., 5.5, 7.5 and 8.5) have a shorter, low-bend shaft configuration with one shaft of offset for more toe flow to promote an arc in the putting stroke. The Phantom X 5, 6, 7, 8 and 12 models have a slightly taller, mid-bend shaft for a near-face balanced set-up that produces less toe flow than the .5 models. The Phantom X 6STR has a straight shaft with zero offset.
