Always known for stylish athletic shoes Adidas is a leader in spikeless designs evidenced this season by its Sport BOOST 3. Worn regularly around the world by Justin Rose among others the shoe features highly breathable waterproof uppers for dry feet in a variety of weather conditions as well as a Puremotion outsole design with external traction elements for enhanced grip and stability.
Both new TS fairway models feature similar technologies as the drivers including extremely thin crowns that are 27% thinner for lower and deeper CG locations thinner clubfaces with variable thickness for more ball speed distance and forgiveness on off center hits and better weight distribution for higher MOI and stability.
There are differences however including most notably more adjustability in the form of Titleist’s SureFit CG technology that allows for more specific spin rate and launch angle tuning. The TS3 also features a more traditional pear shape and tends to produce more of a mid-launch as compared to the TS2’s higher launch.
Putters with more forgiveness and stability like larger mallets typically provide superior distance control because they maintain consistent ball speed and roll even on mis-hits. Unless you’re exceptionally accurate with your contact point (repeatable impact in the center of the putterface) don’t fall overly in love with the more traditional head shapes.
Comfort is maximized through the use of Puma’s proprietary Ignite foam in the midsole a design that also provides energy return with each step as well as plenty of stability during the swing.
