Mizuno launches M.CRAFT OMOI putters

RRP: £279

Mizuno has launched three new M.CRAFT OMOI putters featuring a heavier head for greater stability. Forged from 1025 carbon steel and CNC milled, the OMOI putters increase moment of inertia for improved stability at impact. To balance out the increased head weight, Mizuno has created a lighter grip and shaft combination to shift the club’s centre of gravity.

The new putters are available in three traditional OMOI head styles – OMOI 01, a slant neck blade; OMOI 02, a plumber’s neck blade; and OMOI 03, a full mallet design.

Weighing in at 370g (#1 & #2) and 383g (#3), the putters also come with an additional weight kit including a pair of 3g and 13g weights which are interchangeable with the 8g weight fitted as standard.

“Our testing showed that locating more of the overall club weight in the head provided more consistent face rotation through impact,” said Mizuno’s director of R&D David Llewellyn. “We’ve added up to 28g depending on the model, without increasing size or losing the precise feel of the original M.CRAFT. Plus, unlike many MOI-orientated putters, the new OMOI models also give incredible feedback off the face.”

The putters are available in three finishes – double nickel, bold blue ion or intense black ion. There is also a black-out option which comes with a KBS Tour black ion-plated shaft, Lamkin OMOI Sink Fit Pistol grip and a blacked-out headcover.
