Cleveland TFI 2135 Putters

I thought the tech and reasoning behind this new design was pretty cool. As a result, they've created a radically different line of head models that reminds me of space ships.

 

The photos I found came from another forum so I won't link them.

 

Edit: Just kidding. Didn't see MGS blog post. This one caught my eye:IMG_4888.JPG

The position of the alignment line has been around for a couple of years. What is new in the putters is the face milling patterns and how much material makes contact with the ball. Follows along with Evnroll and Ping faces. The interesting difference is the milling pattern varies based on blade or mallet design due to sweet spot size.

I was looking at the old TFI 2135'so so I will definitely be giving these a long look. Love the RHO shape, these bad boys look awesome.

I have the older model 2135 1.0 and it was an amazing putter, idk why I ever took it out of the bag. I guess I just like new things. A lot of people didn't like the contrasting black/white/copper look on the face, but I thought it looked great. I'm excited to see how this new line performs with the milling.

These look a lot better than the Black/White/Copper.  

 

The HB models are great putters - these should do much better than the Black.

I had to play my Cleveland 38" Almost Belly today and I putted VERY well with it! It was a great putter for me, so I may have to keep it in circulation AND look at a new 2135 CB!!!!

I would love to have the original 2135 8.0 CB 38", and compare it to my Almost Belly, and against the new 2135 that has come out. I really want to see if the grooves make a noticeable difference on distance and proximity, and is, therefore, worth buying the new model over the previous one. I guess an Evnroll-type test would be a way to determine the answer.

Been putting with the 8.0 for the last 3 rounds - it's totally ill-fitting at 35" and way too upright, but damn it putts a nice roll on the ball. It has a 405 gram head and a 148 gram grip and is VERY easy to make a smooth stroke.

Have you tried the original 2135 8.0?

Never for real -- have rolled it in stores though. I've always liked Cleveland putters - would LOVE to see them bring back their #2, which is like Odyssey's #9 model.  Love that look...

Has anybody gamed one of these yet? Rolled one in a store? They haven't made their way north of the border yet....

I had a chance to roll a few of these bad boys as they have finally made their way north. Spent 10-15 minutes comparing the 3 models against each other, as well as the HB #6 they also had. A few impressions...

 

Elevado (counter balanced)- Too heavy for me. I had never swung a counter balanced putter before, but the weight just felt off and weird. I am sure it works for some people, not for me.

 

Cero- I really liked. The alignment aid was fantastic and I felt like I was lined up perfectly everytime. Easy to stroke and I put some great roll on putts. I strongly considered a purchase, I was rolling the ball right on line. Packs a bit more punch than my current putter, I would have to make sure I was dialed in on shorter putts (might require using left hand low or something). 

 

RHO- I wanted to like it. It looks so cool, seems neat, I wanted to love it. But I couldn't. Looking down from above it seemed too busy and distracted me from being in the proper spot. Again, this won't be everyone's experience but I just couldn't get the result I wanted. 

 

HB- Not as big a fan. Just couldn't seem to get a stroke I wanted. Heavier than I expected. Didn't spend as much time with this one though.

 

I think when I am ready to buy a new putter, it'll be hard to talk me out of the Cero. So easy to line up, easy to swing, great roll. I was also considering an MLA putter, but I dislike buying anything I can't try out first (although I know how much our forum members have raved about them).

Yep. It's a great putter. Have the Satin cero. Love the way it feels and sets up. Go back and forth between it and my ER5. Haven't decided which I like better. The feel of the Cleveland is far superior in my opinion but the EVNROLL is awesome.

I'm really excited to try these at the Cleveland fitting next month. The Cero is sweet, but something about that Rho catches my eye.

I currently have a milled wide body blade that I love, but it'll be fun to compare to a high tech putter

For me it is Cero. Have both last years and the latest versions. Point and shoot putter for me. Nice weight, great feel. Every putt looks like it is going in the cup. It also helps me aim better. Overall a terrific putter at a great price

I'm going to more detail on my final review of the Cleveland trip, but i ended going with the 38 inch Elevado CB. Inside 5 feet, it almost felt automatic.

I did like the 8.0 CB, but I already have a wide body blade, and wanted to expand my repertoire.

I have tried counterbalanced putters before, but never really “got it“, didn't know I needed to have the grip extend past my hands to get the true feel.

Based on this, I almost want to throw extended grip on my widebody blade, that is actually heavier than the elevado, to see if it makes any difference.
