Shooting Down Putts with RifleScope Technology
SeeMore Putters | Private Reserve
When we first teamed up with MyGolfSpy back in June to feature an in-depth behind the scenes look at the making of SeeMore Putters, we may have left some of you waiting for a full review. The wait is finally over as we’ve gotten our hot little hands on two Private Label SeeMore Putters.
Hit the jump for our full take on these beauties.
Before we get started, know this: SeeMore putters are best known for their patented Riflescope Technology (RST) alignment system. It’s best described as a having a gun sight on the top line of your putter. The system is easy to use and gets you lined up on your target line perfectly each time. Giving you a reliable and consistent stroke, not to mention one less excuse for missing another gimmie.
Private Reserve m3 – Black Label
If you’ve noticed the trend, this writer has a unique fondness when it comes to products in black. As a long time user of an Odyssey DFX 2-Ball Putter (also in black), you can only imagine the appeal of the Black Label m3. The m3 is a midsize mallet style putter with two small vents cut into the back flange. The head is made from 100% milled 303 stainless steel and weighs in at a robust 351 grams. A milled aluminum back cavity insert is added behind the face to enlarge the sweetspot and enhance feel. The head is finished with a sleek black nitride finish and RifleScope Technology.
Private Reserve mFGP2 – Platinum with Bronze Insert
The mFGP2 is a hybrid putter best described as a half blade, half mallet style putter. The head is made from also milled from 303 stainless steel, and is touch lighter than the m3 at 328 grams. While this Private Label putter doesn’t feature the black nitride finish, it comes in a stunning platinum finish with bronze insert. The bronze insert provides a firmer response while retaining a soft feel. Combined with RifleScope Technology, it’ll definitely have you saying, “Scotty who?” in no time.
After spending a few hours on the practice green getting my aim down with the Riflescope system and their Triangulator, I set my sights on taking the putters out for some “serious” testing. Keeping track of my score with Gear Patrol’s Free Handicap Calculator the results were clear after only a few rounds. Riflescope technology simply works. Putts rolled off the face super smooth and glided across the green as if they were locked onto a homing beacon coming from the hole. I was able to shave nearly 3 putts per round and reduce my number of three putts by a third.
Editor’s Note: For those of you, reluctant to spend more than a couple hundred bucks on a putter, consider this: the average player on Tour hits over 29 putts per round. That’s close to 40% of their total strokes per round. Making a solid investment on a quality flatstick can only seem like a logical place to spend your hard earned cash. Better than on a fancy new driver. After all, drive for show, putt for dough.
