Like the Futura X5, the Futura X5R extends Scotty's design philosophy for multi-material, mechanical, high MOI putters into new territory. The Futura X5R (R for round) embodies the stable, face balanced design that straight-back-straight-through stroke proponents like, but with more curve than the angular Futura X5. Both the X5 and X5R have a full-shaft offset and single-bend shaft. Not only does this create a face-balanced putter, but it offers an unobstructed view of the top line, which has the three-step flow of Cameron's most popular blade putters.
The clean look almost makes you forget you're playing a mallet, and perhaps the X5 is best described as a blade disguised in a mallet's clothing.
