STX Golf, world-renowned as an industry pioneer in putter innovation, and for its patented Soft Face Insert Technology, announced that the company has expanded its Sync Series Putter line-up. The Sync Series 6 (SS6) Putter is the first of three 2012 new models to be introduced.
The current Sync Putter Series is a modern adaptation designed to honor the earlier Sync Tour Putters which contributed to 12 PGA Tour victories and dozens of Top-10 finishes. The design team was committed to developing these new putters with the same artistic flare and performance characteristics associated with the successful series. The STX SS6 Putters exemplifies their dedication.
The STX SS6 Putter is a contemporary blade with an elegant exterior pad line and flange which creates a uniquely shaped head. Additional weighting has been precisely distributed to provide head stability at impact for greater accuracy. This heel shafted putter keeps the hands forward during the entire putting stroke. A bold top-line assists for set up and alignment.
According to STX Director of Golf Steve Henneman, “STX has experienced a tremendous amount of growth this year and the Sync Series contributed greatly. The line combines non-traditional looks with performance factors that are incomparable and they are sensibly priced. Retailers and consumers both recognized their value. They are a keystone in our putter offerings and why we are introducing the SS6 as well as the SS7 and SS8 in 2012.”
Each model in the Sync Series Collection features STX and its Soft Insert Technology called “F.E.E.L.” – Friction Enhancing Elastomer Layer. This patented STX technology dramatically increases the coefficient of friction to put a greater amount of topspin on the ball and keep your putts on line. The Soft Face Insert keeps the ball in contact with the putter longer to also provide superior directional control, decreased ball skid and reduced ball deformation.
The black insert is the softest in the STX line. It delivers the highest friction and resilience rate with increased dwell time. Those characteristics are chemically formulated to get the ball rolling sooner and keep your putts on line. For a medium resiliency rate, the red insert offers an intermediate amount of dwell time for a firmer feel and true control.
The contemporary slightly offset SS6 Putter head is finished with a deep distinctive black PVD and weighs 350 grams. The loft specification is 3 degrees and the lie specification is 71 degrees. It is available in both 34″ and 35″ in length. Signature Golf Pride grips and exclusive head-cover complete the SS6 Putter. The company will begin shipping the SS6 Putter in February with a MSRP of $109.00.
