It’s the black PVD coating that makes this new version of the popular Stroke Lab putter stand out. At least from a visual standpoint. And there is plenty to like about its rich, almost elegant finish. But what Callaway engineers seem most proud of is the way they were able to give another way for golfers to take advantage of the much less visible – but no less effective – technology these flat sticks possess.
Perhaps the key feature of any Stroke Lab putter in the multi-material shaft, which saves 40 grams of weight that is then redistributed to the head and grip ends of the flat stick. The result, company officials aver, is a rebalanced putter that improves both tempo and consistency.
In addition, the Stroke Lab Black boasts a new Microhinge star insert that is made to provide a firmer feel and better sound at impact while maintaining the same roll benefits of the tour-proven White Hot Microhinge insert.
