High MOI mini-mallet style putter with steel body and carbon fiber soleplate.
When addressing the ball for the first time some users may require some time adjusting to the very different look of the Wingman. The wings on either side of the body are weighted to help square the face at impact and are definitely different looking…not necessarily off-putting just different.
“This is our first ultra-premium Exotics putter in some time, and it features some really cool tech,” said Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod. “We took two years in R&D with extensive testing to come up with the perfect design that will allow Tour Edge to offer extreme tour-quality performance on the green, while offering more features and benefits than that of extreme M.O.I. putters that cost twice as much.”
The basic head weight of the Wingman is 355 grams including the two 3-gram sole weights and there’s the option of changing them out for other weights of 8 and 15 grams. The very light but very strong carbon fiber sole plate helps redistribute head weight towards the rear, heel and toe thus raising the MOI (modulus of inertia or resistance to twisting) to a very high value. The face insert is Surlyn with has Tour Edge’s MicroGroove pattern that promotes less skidding after impact for a truer roll.
