Heavy Putter Deep Face Blades Score Highest MOI in Independent Tests
09.17.08Revolutionary F3-DF, C2-DF Models Incredibly Stable, Twist Resistant
(RIDGEFIELD, CT) - Boccieri Golf announces that its blade models - the F3-DF and C2-DF - in the Heavy Putter Deep Face Series provide golfers with an extremely high moment of inertia (MOI), ranking No. 1 in recent, independent tests against other top manufacturers.
Of the more than 30 putters tested, the uniquely designed Heavy Putter F3-DF scored the highest MOI in the blade category with an astounding 6,437(g-cm2), while the C2-DF took second place with an MOI of 5,322. These results are from third-party tests conducted on behalf of GOLF Magazine by Hot Stix Golf and from Solid Works, a 3-D finite-element analysis and modeling program. On average, the MOI of blade putters tested is 4,730 (g/cm2).
The Heavy Putter F3-DF and C2-DF were designed by moving weight away from the head's center of gravity, resulting in a higher MOI. This means these Heavy Putter models are able to resist twisting during the stroke and at impact for a straighter, more controlled putt with less distance loss on off-center hits. The highest MOI levels are usually found in mallet putters; however, the Heavy Putter DF Series proves that a properly-designed blade can provide the same if not better benefits.
"MOI is a crucial performance element to consider when purchasing a new putter," says Stephen Boccieri, President and CEO of Boccieri Golf. "For those consumers who feel most comfortable with the design of a blade, but want the forgiveness generally associated with a mallet, the Heavy Putter F3-DF and C2-DF are the perfect solutions."
The F3-DF is easily recognizable by the "wings" which extend backward from the heel and toe of the head, as well as by the unique "ping" sound that resonates upon contact. The C2-DF is a classically designed blade featuring a plumber's-neck hosel for a full shaft offset - a style widely used on the PGA Tour.
Introduced in late 2007, the Heavy Putter Deep Face Series was created after extensive studies indicated most golfers would benefit from increased consistent vertical accuracy at impact. The higher center of gravity of the DF line allows golfers to raise their putters just above the surface of the green more consistently to achieve contact with the sweet spot for improved overall putting.
The weighting technology that made the Original Heavy Putter popular is the same for the DF Series. Like the entire Heavy Putter line, the DF models weigh just under two times that of conventional putters, thus, automatically engaging larger, more stable muscles. Furthermore, the higher balance point created by the counter-weight in the butt end of the shaft disengages the hands, promoting a smoother, more consistent pendulum stroke. Like all Heavy Putter models, the new DF Series incorporates face balancing for improved feel and performance.
Most Heavy Putter Deep Face models come in standard, mid and long lengths. All standard- length models are $169.
About the Heavy Putter
The Heavy Putter is carried in all 50 states and 29 overseas markets. It is found in many of the finest off-course shops and most prestigious golf courses, country clubs and resorts worldwide.
Troy Matteson used the Heavy Putter to win the PGA TOUR's Frys.com Open en route to five consecutive top-10 finishes in addition to a victory and three top-five finishes on the 2008 European PGA TOUR. Asian PGA TOUR, Canadian and Nationwide Tour champions have also won with the Heavy Putter, which has been used in competition by major-tournament winners.
The Heavy Putter remains the first and only putter that can automatically improve the consistency of the putting stroke. Its unprecedented application of a heavier mass head and counter-balanced weight in the grip end of the shaft promotes greater stroke stability, consistent swing paths, uniform pace, precise distance and directional control, and tightens the end-over-end golf ball roll.
The pioneering weight technology features a 450- to 550-gram head (conventional heads are 330 to 350 grams). The Heavy Putter's defining Weight Management System, a 250-gram weight installed in the grip end, produces a balance point 75 percent higher than conventional putters.
The Heavy Putter "Original" and "Matte" Series models - which spawned the global army of Heavy Putter true believers - are still available. They include an adjustable tip-weight kit to fine tune the balance point of the putter and match golfers' unique release characteristics. There are three blades and three mallets within each series.
