Titleist has announced its new Scotty Cameron Phantom X Putter line is a “major leap in performance” and will soon replace the Futura family.
The Phantom X range is the master putter-maker’s most technically-advanced putter line to date, featuring nine new modern mallets, which have been built around five different head styles to take putting performance to the next level.

To maximize MOI, each Phantom X model incorporates multi-material construction featuring precision milled solid aluminium faces integrated with 303 stainless steel heads with enhanced vibration dampening technology.
“Phantom X is by far the most high-tech putter line we’ve designed to date … This product is so much faster looking, and taken to the next level, that it needed a new name,” Cameron said.
“It’s a major leap in performance. We’ve designed a variety of flange setups, alignment options and shaft bends to offer mallet players more models to choose from.
“I was inspired by Tour players who’ve asked for slightly smaller profiles with more alignment options and solid face construction. The engineering has been ramped up to an entirely new level to bring this brand new line to life. Phantom X is the ultimate line-up for mallet players.”

A variety of tour-preferred setups offer multiple alignment options, including: continuous lines from the leading edge all the way back; simple sight dots; raised or stepped down flanges; and wider or “vanishing” toplines … All of which have been accentuated with longer, racing-inspired lines and triple milled sight dots highlighted in neon yellow paint to frame the golf ball at address.
The three shaft options – low-bend, mid-bend and straight – offered across the Phantom X line give players more choices with regard to their preferred amount of toe flow.
Phantom X models with “.5” in the name (i.e., 5.5, 7.5 and 8.5) have a shorter, low-bend shaft configuration with one shaft of offset for more toe flow to promote an arc in the putting stroke.

The Phantom X 5, 6, 7, 8 and 12 models have a slightly taller, mid-bend shaft for a near-face balanced setup that produces less toe flow than the .5 models. Meanwhile, the Phantom X 6STR has a straight shaft with zero offset.
The range features advanced stability weighting with two, customizable stainless steel heel-toe weights and stepless steel shafts – and it also marks the debut of the Pistolero Plus grip in cement gray with gloss black paint fill.
