TaylorMade has released some great looking equipment lately. It first started with their P750 and P770 irons, then the Milled Grind Wedge and most recently, the beautiful P730 and P790 irons. We’ve also seen some great putters released by TaylorMade at the end of 2016 with the TP Putter Collection, which Sergio Garcia put in the bag earlier in the year. Today, the company introduces their latest TP Red Putter Collection.
The TP Red Putter Collection expands on the success of the original TP Collection, but now feature Pure Roll™ Inserts with a combination of designs and constructions in a “Tour Red” finish. Comprised of 6 performance mallet models, the new collection has been designed for the discerning player who seeks the performance of TaylorMade’s renowned Pure Roll technology in an aesthetically appealing Tour Red colourway that the company rolled out in 2016, particularly for Jason Day’s custom Itsy Bitsy Spider Putter. Since then, the Tour Red colourway has seen its demand grow on global tours following the success of TaylorMade staffers Jason Day, Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia.
The TP Red Collection is comprised of five new variations of the Ardmore putter as well as the Chaska model. Each of the six new models feature milled 304 stainless steel heads with Tour Red finish for a premium look and feel with high-contrast colouring and a variety of sightline options to promote improved alignment.
World number 13 Justin Rose, who first saw the putter at a company photoshoot earlier this month, put the Chaska into play the following week at the BMW Championship, where he finished T2 and recorded a remarkable strokes gained: putting of 2.393. Each putter in the TP Red Collection has a head weight of 355g, a 3.5° loft, 70° of lie angle and comes available in 34” & 35’’ lengths. Each model in the collection also features interchangeable sole weights to enable the adjustment of mass for optimal performance.
Similar to the original TP Collection, each new model utilizes a new milling process along with TaylorMade’s proprietary Pure Roll insert to deliver optimal forward roll with a desired firm feel. The 6061 aluminum Pure Roll insert combines 45° grooves with a softer polymer between the grooves to promote better forward roll and reduce skidding across varying surfaces. The composition and construction of the Pure Roll insert is specially engineered to bring the grooves into direct and active contact with the ball during impact, even on short putts. The grooves in the face also serve in part to strategically soften the insert’s structure. Together, these factors make the insert perform at a very high level. Currently, TaylorMade Tour staffers Jon Rahm, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose all play putters incorporating Pure Roll technology.
Availability and Pricing
The TP Red Collection will be available starting tomorrow, 9/29. Each putter in the collection comes equipped stock with a Super Stroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip at an MSRP of $219 USD or $279.99 CAD.
