One of the most gratifying feelings in the many years of being a golf product tester is being able to showcase the startup/lesser known golf companies willing to take the chance on a passionate idea. Not many people know this but that's how I got involved in the industry. Starting with a simple idea, going through the patent process, testing, manufacturing and finally bringing the finished product to market is an exhilarating feeling. Sometimes it catches on and sometimes you need to move on. When I was approached by the crew at Clutch Putters, I saw a product that not only caught my attention but I can tell it was created by people who had the same passion as myself.
Have you ever had a club in your bag that you have kept for years that is on its last leg and looking sad or maybe you don’t take care of your clubs very well and it may have rust or damage? Have no fear, Kickstand Putters can take your club and make it just like new.
Although not a household name in golf, Miura stands for everything that is pure in club making. The best carbon steel, forging and milling like no other, exclusivity and hand grinded by the best in the business. For this review, Miura has sent me their new KM008 putter. An improved version of the retired and very popular Miura KM 350 (Small Blade Putter), Miura san re-designed this putter for players seeking the very best. Now, I can attest to the fact that the KM008 is of the finest materials and build quality. And yes, it's gorgeous to look at. But, does that translate to low scores on the greens? Let's find out.
Those that have been golfing for as long as I have must have gone through a lot of putters. Let’s be honest, we all mishit shots especially on the green when you are trying to sink that birdie or save par. We do it and so do the pros. One putter company that has been sinking putts and making waves on the Champions Tour is Cure Putters. Cure prides themselves on being a manufacture of a putter than you can increase/decrease the MOI (Moment of Inertia) and weight of your putter with the simple change of some screws. A great example of this is the new Cure CX2 putter.
