Who’s It For?
The newest product series released from Scotty Cameron is the Phantom X, which represents an advancement from the popular Futura line. These Phantom X modern mallets are packed with the most technology of any series Cameron has ever designed. Overall, the lineup includes five different clubhead styles and a variety of alignment and shaft bend options for a total of nine new models. Specifically, the Phantom X 8 features a sleek design with a near face-balanced head design with a mid single-bend neck and minimum toe flow, making it a great fit for golfers with straight-back, straight-through putting strokes.
The Tech Story
Every putter in the Phantom X family constructed of multiple materials, including a stainless steel clubhead and a milled solid aluminum clubface that extends through the flange of each head. The Phantom X putter head designs are also slightly more compact than their Futura predecessors with sleek contours that stay low to the ground, which are both visually pleasing and great for weight distribution. These clubhead designs, combined with anodized black milled 6061 aircraft aluminum faces, produce incredibly soft feel, solid feedback, and enhanced vibration dampening for added forgiveness. Each model also contains two weights on the sole, one heel-side and one toe-side, to promote stability. Meanwhile, the stock grip has been adjusted to better match an ideal shape for a mallet putter. The Pistolero Plus grip contains a thicker, less tapered low hand and the tour-preferred feel and performance of a standard Pistolero-style grip. Each putter also boasts a series of bright yellow alignment aids along the crown that help center the golf ball at address and increase stroke consistency through visibility. The Phantom X 8 specifically, has three milled topline sight dots and two sharp lines running parallel to each other and perpendicular to the topline for easy alignment.

“Mallet players are very particular. What might appeal to one may not be what another is looking for. I created Phantom X to offer options I thought would appeal to all types of mallet players. The 8 is new territory and entirely ‘next level’. No distractions. All alignment in a shape that sits like a fighter jet wing.” -- Scotty Cameron, Putter Designer
