Do you want to get your hands on the newest gear from Nike Golf for the fall collection? Well one of the first pieces of equipment you need to get your hands on is the New Nike Method Mod putter collection. These high tech works of art will not only help improve your game but make you look good while doing it by taking inspiration from some the most popular putters of the past four decades. Any four of the models you select will defiantly be a great addition to your bag. I tested the Nike Method Mod 90 in 34″.
I would like the call the Nike Method Mod putters the 2.0 version of the past year’s Method putters. They have taken an already exceptionally gorgeous club and transformed it another level. The whole new Mod putter lineup has clean lines in the satin chrome milled finish with eye catching red detailing. The Method Mod 90 takes the simple blade putter from the past and gives it a facelift even Joan Rivers would appreciate. So if you are looking for a gorgeous piece of craftsmanship then look no further than the Nike Method Mod 90 putter. I give the overall look of this putter a 10/10.
Nike has taken the revolutionary design of the Polymetal grooves and added them to their newest additions in the Method putter family. These four putter models of the Mod series will help deliver instantaneous roll off the club face which is one of the keys to hitting well-struck putts. This helps you keep more putts rolling on line and in essence will help you shoot lower scores by draining more putts. Since nothing is more frustrating than a putt that starts offline from poor contact from your putter face. The Nike Method Mod 90 putter helps solve this problem by bringing back a great piece of technology from last year and incorporating it into the new lineup of putters. You can be assured that you will get a great product from Nike engineers and the Method family is going in a solid direction. I give the overall roll rating a 9/10.
The issue of weighting can be huge when looking for a new putter. Everyone has their own idea how it should feel when selecting a putter they believe will help them shoot better scores. I have always been a huge fan of blade style putters. It’s usually the first style putter you ever get as a kid when getting a cut down set from your dad or playing miniature golf. The Nike Method Mod 90 putter on the other hand is taking the traditional purist style blade and giving it a souped-up Ferrari engine. Through the technology at The Oven, they have taken the weight and distributed it evenly from toe to heal which helps lower the center of gravity. “The distinctive 90° toe hang, determined by the weight location in relation to the head, offers a personalized feel for optimal forgiveness, roll and accuracy.” This putter will sit low, deliver excellent weighting and I believe will be a great addition to your bag. I give the overall weighting a 9/10 rating.
If you are looking for a high performing blade putter you will need to give the Method Mod 90 putter a shot. Every detail of this putter has been thoroughly examined by producing one of the highest quality putters on the market with the addition to the Method family. Everything from the CNC-milled face for maximum performance, Polymetal groove technology, balanced weighting has delivered a winner. This putter feels great off the face with smooth roll and precise distance control. Playing a few rounds and getting some solid practice time, I can see the careful amount of time put into making this club. I give the overall performance of this putter a 8/10.
Overall Rating 36/40
Nike has delivered on creating a whole new lineup of Method putters that anyone can enjoy from blade to mallet style heads. With four different options, you will be guaranteed to find one that suits your game and favorite style of putter. The Method Mod 90 will not only look good on the green but has all the performance one desires in purchasing a blade style putter. The Polymetal grooves will give you clean rolls off the face along with a very impressive balance weighting system. These bad boys hit the shelves November 1, 2013, so go down to your local shop and give them a try. The sticker price of $299 shouldn’t shock you when seeing this putter because the quality put into it makes it a great value. I give the overall rating a 36/40.
Below is the Official Press Release of the Nike Method Mod Putters
BEAVERTON, Ore. (October 8, 2013) – Divide a second by 1,000. Now divide that in half. That’s how little time it takes to launch a golf ball that is just over an inch-and-a-half in diameter from where it sits nestled on a green. Nike’s Polymetal Groove technology allows athletes to tackle this challenge with more consistency and confidence than ever before — and that same innovative technology paves the way for modern performance in Nike Golf’s new line of classically-designed Nike Method MOD putters, available November 1.
Inspired by some of the most popular putter models of the past four decades, Nike Golf engineers combined tradition and innovation to craft the newest tech-savvy additions to the Method family. Timeless styles and shapes are updated with a unique arc design profile, red detailing and satin chrome finish to round out a line of four premium, milled putters that offer the ultimate in Tour-proven performance.
“We were able to take a range of classic designs and make them perform like modern putters,” says David Franklin, Nike Golf Master Modelmaker. “We incorporated Polymetal Groove technology, which allows athletes to lift the ball, launch it and turn it forward as quickly as possible for a truer roll. We removed weight from the center, placing it in the heel and toe instead for a lower and deeper center of gravity. It’s Nike’s interpretation on classic, familiar shapes.”
Each Nike Method MOD putter is weighted to length to ensure proper feel, and the line offers a range of toe hang options determined by where the weight is in relationship to the putter head. This allows athletes to choose a model to his or her personal preference for optimal forgiveness, roll and accuracy: MOD 00 (face-balanced); MOD 30 (30 degrees of toe hang); MOD 60 (60 degrees of toe hang); and MOD 90, (90 degrees of toe hang).
Nike Method MOD putters will be available on November 1 at select retailers and on Nike.com.
