Title: Toulon Latrobe
Post by: CourtGolf on January 13, 2017, 08:28:08 PM
Just saw these pictures of the new Toulon Latrobe. 

They are going to have have a couple of sole plates so you can have it set at 340 or 350 grams.

Nice Tribute.

Isn't it funny that Mr.Palmer is remembered for a putter he never really used? The deterioration of his relationship  with Wilson started right about the time the "Designed by" came out and why it quickly became the 8802.

I am going to get picky on this one.  On a true 8802/Designed by Palmer putter a difference can be seen where the neck meets the sole on the face view.   There seems to be a little extra mass here and a more of a George Low 600 look in the heel.  A view from back of the neck (from heel to toe) are is tough to nail and where most fail to get right.

Maybe the Toulon guys are able to showcase some skills and hand shape a bit more?  The finish and rest of the putter look amazing still.  Glad to see them take on the challenge of a simple yet difficult to make putter.

It's one of the "cheats" to get the putterhead to weight.  Increase mass by reducing sole radius on the heel and toe.  Along with thickening the back flange.  Both allow for mass while the appearance at address is "correct."

I still wish Callaway/Odyssey would put a carbon steel 8802 option out there.  I've tried a lot of models and the only stainless 8802 I've been able to tolerate is the Byron DBCM.  I get that this allows for modular soles, but adjustability is overrated.  Get the weight you want and leave it alone.  Seriously, how many people regularly adjust their weights?
