Sniper "deadly precise"
When developing this very new precision milled Sniper, all the desirable benefits are taken in to account.
A non-corrosive material with a higher density is chosen, to be able to take away all the material,
not needed to provide al desired benefits; chrome-nickel steel. (1.4305 AISI 303)
On the Sniper too, we’ve created two lines, in two heights, to combine the right alignment with a proper setup.
Place the two lines in extension of each other and a proper setup is accomplished.
The slightest miss-alignment will immediately be noticed.
The Sniper provides an adjustable head weight, to set it up for your personal preference, type of stroke or different green speeds. With the provided tool and different balance weights, you can increase or decrease the weight.
To create a higher MOI, ‘endblocks’ are created at the end of the putterface. Because of this it doesn’t twist so much on off-centre hits. So if a ball is hit off-centre with the Sniper, it actually keeps the putter straight and the ball nicely on line.
There’s only one roll; that is true-roll. True roll is that movement of the ball, agitated by a non-influenced pure stroke. Therefore the putter face is not provided with any pattern or insert.
The Sniper has a loft of 4 degrees.
FACE BALANCED OR TOO-HANG
The Sniper comes with 2 types of centered shafts.
A single bend centered shaft to make the putter face balanced, mostly preferred by players with a more straight back-and-forth putting stroke.
This means that the centre of gravity is chosen in a way that the face is exactly horizontal when balancing the putter on the shaft.
The other option is a straight shaft to make the putter too-hang. This too-hang is a great advantage for people with an arc-stroke.
SHAFT WITH COUNTERBALANCE.
The counterbalance in the puttershaft prevents off-centre hits, it provides a more stable and smooth putting-stroke.
In order to meet the best options we have chosen for the UST Mamiya Frequency Filtered™ shaft.
It connects a steel tip with a carbon fiber grip-end by a filtering diffuser in the mid section to eliminate unwanted vibrations.
FEEL SLOT TECHNOLOGY (FST)
A great feature that is invisible in setup is the ‘Feel Slot Technology’.
The FST is designed to 'cut' the bottom from the face. This FST improves feel and dampens vibration.
