    The best part is these are going to retail for $429!

    Makes you wonder if the steel tariffs are starting to come into play here. I understand that we just lifted tariffs against Canada and Mexico for steel imports, but these went into production a while ago. No idea where Acushnet was sourcing their billets, but undoubtedly they're paying more than they were a few years ago.

    Cameron’s OTR offerings have been going up in prices every year. Nothing new here.

    They've gone up $25 every release for the last 4 or 5 years, while using cheaper materials....

    What are the cheaper materials they are using?

    Other than the 3M double sided tape promoted as a special dampening membrane?

    Well, it's definitely a "dampening membrane". Special? Ehhh, probably not, LOL.

    It’s like Lewis black said. It’s not soy milk. It’s soy juice. But soy juice won’t move product.

    2 sided tape for dampening won’t move product.

    Just picked up a Phantom 5...will report back tomorrow on my thoughts. My initial thoughts are good...feel, sound, and response!

    Where is everyone ordering theirs from? I got a quote from DD and there was almost no discount.

    Paid $360 for mine off eBay. New with plastic still on grip and head. Even with the discounted price I still can’t believe I paid that for a putter . . . but I’ll be danged if I didn’t roll the ball great playing 45 holes in a tournament this weekend. My distance control was better than it has been in a long time. That being said, it is still the honeymoon period.

    x8 definitely doesnt look good. 5.5 maybe...

  • Mikee_jMikee_j Members Posts: 153 ✭✭✭

    Wow these Phantom X's look much better and much smaller in person.
    Rolled the X8 and could be one to knock out my older futura X5 from the bag. Love the simplicity and the alignments.
    Really need to test one on the course on real greens instead of rolling 10ft putts in a pro shop.

    Rolled the X 12 in store and was lights out, out to 12 feet. Felt great even with the crappy balls, clicky for sure. Alignment was super easy. Been using a super stroke grip for so long that the Pistolero grip felt nice. Going to demo one at my club during a round this weekend. I may just have to splurge and get one.

    I love my 7.5 for the first Tim in a long time I’m not looking at putters. Lines up great and has a great feel on longer putts. Lag putting has been a breeze

    No lefty options at all for the entire line?

    The 7 & 7.5 are available in LH.

  • Fourpar18Fourpar18 Members Posts: 2,592 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    So my initial thoughts...

    This putter has amazing feel and distance control was awesome! Alignment was a easy and the looks are what draws everyone In. So far I love it...just need to figure out if I am a mallet or blade guy!

    I rolled them all yesterday. I thought I’d prefer the 5.5, but wound up preferring the 7.5. Can’t pay the $400+ for it though.

    I checked the line up at NY golf center and for some reason I like the #12 it looks like something batman would use
    anyhow I like them and theres a nice sound that comes off of the putters , not sure if it was the balls I was practicing with
    but they seemed to be a mixture of different brand balls .

  • chasdrchasdr Members Posts: 9 ✭✭

    Love my X5...agree on setup...for me better than the Futura line, which feels large in comparison. Really like that the putter sits perfectly square behind the ball and the 3 yellow alignment dots helps make for a consistent setup. Incredibly well balanced and great feel - especially distance.

    Bumping for more feedback on these putters. Rolled a 5.5 the other day and really liked it.

  • AG12AG12 Members Posts: 1,157 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I'm not a CS type of guy but with my Left Hand Low technique of putting the Phantom X 6STR felt phenomenal off the face and lined up really well. Surprised at how soft the feel was. Don't think it can dethrone my Spider X though at the moment.

    Picked up a 8.5 and figured it for a round trip on my way back to a Spider X. Not going to happen. Amazing feel. Distance control spot on. Several bombs in the last four rounds that just inspire even more confidence. Always liked the Futura lines but this smaller toe-hang mallet just feels right.

    I went into the golf shop the other day with full intention of getting a Fastback with some member-guest winnings. As much as I tried to like the Fastback more than the Phantom X 5.5 I just couldn’t do it! Ordered the 5.5! Scheduled to ship the first week of August. I’ll provide some more feedback once I’m gaming it full time. Currently game a Spider Tour.

    Putted with an 8.5 and it was the best of the bunch. Sat really well and the alignment was great.

    Aluminum and high grade stainless are between $1400 and $1800 per ton. Given a putter head weighs less than a pound, material costs are not a huge factor. Should prices double, that would be less than $1 per putter.

    I've putted with the same Studio Style Newport 2 since '05. I'm now in the market for a new putter, and I'm having a hard time saying no the Phantom X 6 STR.....I've only putted in the stores, but it feels really good.

    Justin Thomas was using one. Not sure if he still is or not.
