    I actually think they nailed the name on it. Just think its something that isn't going to do what they wanted it to.

    So, I was watching the Waste Management Open this Sunday. I noticed An Byeong-hun had some ugly looking putter and missed basically every putt he hit on camera. I wake up this morning to Taylormade introducing this thing to the masses. Hard no from me.

    I am by some definitions an engineer, and you are pretty bang-on accurate there. You would think if this actually did anything they might add it to a driver that moves at a 100mph for stability, but nope.

    There could be or I wouldn't discount a possible weight distribution benefit, but I might question why such a benefit could not be realized in a less-ugly fashion.

    Titleist used "LFF"?

    I thought "LFF" was originally used by MacGregor.

    Looks terrible for aerodynamics. That would take 3 mph off my extreme putter speed.

    Don’t mind the name. Call it whatever they want. I just don’t like the product! TaylorMade could have called these 009 and they still look hideous!

    Is the Truss supposed to be stroke/torqued balanced like the Edel, Toe Up, Backstryke, Axis, or Directed Force/L.A.B ?

    It better do something special, it is definitely ugly. I’ve gamed the Edel E-1, E-3 and the Directed Force. I really took grief over the Directed Force and rightfully so because it was huge and looked like a branding iron. I dealt with the grief because I felt there was some science behind the idea. Not this putter, Im the not so distant future the Truss will be on the ugliest golf club thread.

    Not supporting the name but who cares?? When you drain a 12 footer to shoot your low round on 18...is that random stranger you got paired with going to ask you or care what the name of your putter is?

    I don't see how its really that much worse than Exo or Marxman or Zing...so on and so on.

    Sumo, Rocketballz, Futura, Squareway, DTR (distance through research), Howitzer, Nubbins, Mellow Yellow just to name a few that I believe are worse than Truss.

    God i would play any club with any name if it helped! Just say you have a TM putter blade thing and boom off you go.

    Alex Etches tried to do a review on this thing and how it was a lemon. He loves it. Said its best his putted!!

    A truss in this orientation will help prevent damage when you bang it off the ground after the fourth three putt during the round.

    He’s entertaining but he’s not a reviewer. He’s a product enthusiast who has never met a club he didn’t like.

    Don't forget the Ping Faith. Faith in what?! The last thing I want running through my mind as I pull my driver on the first tee is that my club is reminding me to have faith.

    These Pros on the European PGA Tour were hitting tee shots 200+ yards with their putters. Not a single complaint of too much hosel flex! Haha

    Apparently there have been instances of designs similar to this for putters dating back to the 1920's.

    One hundred years later, it's still ugly and it's still a bad idea.

    It's almost like they never do any focus-group testing. They just throw stuff out there and see what sticks. TM always seems to have some absolutely killer clubs in its lineup, but also a bunch of forgettable or regrettable junk. And no company is more comically over-the-top in its product/marketing claims. They're all guilty but TM is the king of Mount BS.
