Spherical Blade launch 'Six of the Best' putter range for 2010
March 22, 2010

Innovative UK putter brand Spherical Blade has unveiled a range of six new S-Blade designs for 2010. All models feature the company's revolutionary 'curved face' technology – proven in laboratory testing to deliver a perfect roll by imparting increased top-spin on the ball - which prevents the 'bobbling' and skidding effect commonly seen after the putter strikes the ball.

Every model is manufactured from a durable stainless steel with a milled face, sleek gunmetal finish and distinctive eye-shaped logo positioned on the sweetspot.

For golfers seeking supreme forgiveness on off-centre strikes, the new twin-pronged S-Blade 'BlackEye 2010' bear claw design delivers increased lateral balance and weight distribution, while the attractive gunmetal finish gives a wonderful soft feel off the face. The 'BlackEye 2010' weighs 400g with an offset steel shaft.

Players preferring a heavier putter engineered for maximum MOI and forgiveness will enjoy the 420g S-Blade 'Crescent' where the oversized head features a precision cutaway design. This gunmetal design is available with a heel mounted crook shaft.

Lovers of tradition will appreciate the heel and toe weighted S-Blade 'Emperor' with its recognisable blade-shaped head and offset shaft. Weighing 400g, the attractive gunmetal colouring reduces glare while to aid ball line-up the putter face features a new 'eye' logo on the sweetspot and directly underneath the yellow sightline.

Even with the advent of oversized putter heads, mallet shapes still offer a wonderful feel around the green and this is evident in this year's S-Blade 'Arrowhead'. This 360g putter is characterised by its cut-out mallet-style back and easy line-up aid, while the attractive gunmetal finish completes the flowing, aesthetic appeal.

The S-Blade 'Classic' - the oldest putter head style in the game

The 2010 Spherical Blade collection is completed by the S-Blade 'Classic' - inspired by the oldest putter head style in the game.

Here, tradition and class come in one simple, effective design with the added modern twist of S-Blade's curved face technology to increase forgiveness. The putter is available in a sleek gunmetal grey, or the stunning 'Limited Edition Classic' features a matt black head and black shaft.

Each model in the Spherical Blade 2010 range is available in lengths 30-36 inches and a choice of five different grips – three Golf Pride versions and two 2Thumb models.

All putters except the ‘Limited Edition Classic’ (pictured below - RRP £129) are priced at a RRP of £119, and come with a leather/neoprene headcover.

The S-Blade Ltd Edition Classic
Not just a pretty face... patented curved-face technology and precision milling
bring 21st century benefits of forgiveness to a classic design

S-Blade putters are designed with a distinct North-South curve on the face, so that the point of impact with the ball is always above its mid-point to get the ball rolling with topspin and negate skid and bobble that can be caused by typical flat-faced putters.

At the same time, a gentle East-West convex curve running along the entire length of the face widens the sweet spot and minimises the effect of any less than perfect swings or ‘twitches' - increasing the chances of the ball staying on its intended target path.

This winning combination of patented technology helps the golfer achieve a much smoother roll on their putts and also makes S-Blade putters more forgiving than many other makes and models, a fact confirmed by laboratory testing in 2008 at the renowned Quintic Consultancy.

In a test of nine putters, the S-Blade Emperor was one of only two putters to get the ball rolling with topspin immediately on impact – and imparted the most initial spin. Seven other well-known and established putter brands saw their models initially suffering from 'backspin' at impact.
