Coming to a golf shop near you in February, Scotty Cameron has announced the release of two mid-mallet models to his line of Select putters, the Select Fastback 2 and Select Squareback 1.5.
“Extending the Select line was all about taking the feedback we got from players and incorporating it into new offerings,” explained Scotty Cameron. “Shortly after we introduced the 2018 Fastback and Squareback models on tour, players began asking for them with prototype necks. They’re not blades and not exactly mallets. We call them mid-mallets. By creating the Fastback 2 with a plumbing neck, and the Squareback 1.5 with our mini-slant neck, we’re giving players everything they asked for and more.”
Following the introduction of the 2018 Select Fastback model on the worldwide professional golf tours, players immediately asked Scotty for one option – a plumbing neck. The familiar, confidence-inspiring setup, which provides one shaft of offset, has been incorporated into the Select Fastback 2. In addition to the new neck, subtle refinements have been made to the topline for a slightly thinner look, as well as a reduction of face height.
My new front-runner for potential purchase is this new Squareback 1.5. It incorporates a new mini-slant neck that further squares off the overall shape and look at address for the player seeking clean, distinct visual cues. Additionally, the draft angle has been updated to accommodate the new neck, which also produces slightly more toe flow than its mid-bend counterpart, the Select Squareback. Similar to the Fastback 2, Scotty shaved some topline thickness for a thinner appearance from address, and reduced the overall face height.
As with all Select line putters, they feature a raw stainless steel finish with a unique bead blast for a radiant yet glare resistant appearance. The Fastback 2 has smaller, double-milled “cherry dots” on the sole, while the Squareback 1.5 have them on the heel and sole, both inspired by Scotty’s familiar three bright translucent red dot theme.
The new putters will be available on Friday, February 15th, 2019 and will cost $399.
