STX, renowned as an industry pioneer in putter innovation, has announced the launch a new addition to its Bob Engman Signature series, the STX Envision TR putter.
The Envision TR is the perfect line extension for the Engman Signature Series, combining as it does, world class design with superior functionality.
“The elegant lines are stunning, but more importantly, they serve as excellent alignment aids.” said Steve Henneman, Director of Golf for STX.
“Chief Club Designer Bob Engman continues to fuse form and function with the release of this new signature series putter which boasts square angles and bold lines to ensure a proper address.
The square shaped head distributes weight further out towards the heel and toe for a higher moment of inertia. The geometric shapes chosen by Engman make it easy for golfers to see when the putter is not properly aligned throughout the stroke.
For a variety of responses, the Envision TR will be available in the black, red and green insert options.
The black insert is the softest yet produced by STX’s renowned, soft insert technology.
It delivers the highest friction and resilience rate plus increased dwell time.
Those characteristics are chemically formulated to get the ball rolling sooner and keep your putts on line. For a medium resiliency rate, the red insert offers an intermediate amount of dwell time for true control.
For golfers who prefer a firmer feel, the green insert provides a harder face with less resilience.
A sophisticated gunmetal finish compliments the bullet back style that epitomizes the STX style. The Envision TR is machined from a 304 stainless steel to ensure precise angles and a perfectly flat striking surface.
A proprietary double bend shaft on the Envision TR moves the hands forward for proper alignment. All signature series putters will be available in lengths of 34, and 35 inches and shipping will begin in the spring of 2009 with a suggested retail price of $199.00.
