Congratulations guys! This is one I'm so interested I'm going to do myself. I have been putting with Odyssey Black Tour #9 for the past 10+ years and putting is a real strength but I'm very interested in the new technology. I have been considering the Stability Shaft but after as much reading as I could do, I have decided to go with a Stroke Lab #9. I was going to order it already but I thought I would wait to see if I was chosen or not. If it's alright with everyone I will start my own thread and do my review very much the way it is typically done here at MSG. I thought I was a good candidate for a thorough review because it will be pretty close to an apples to apples review since I have been using the same head shape for so long. Again, congratulations to the testers!

I was in the same boat - I ended up not being able to allow myself to shell out the $199 for the shaft, but it seems like there is a lot of tech here in the shafts and the majority of the reviews I've heard thus far say it makes a difference.  Will be interested to hear about your take also.

You know I will be! @Nunfa0

Tried to get back out for August but wasn't able to make it work. Hopefully sooner rather then later.

      TESTERS WANTED (5)
      Clevleand Golf is making us rethink everything we've heard about center of gravity and MOI. Well at least when it comes to it's new line of Frontline putters.  For years we've been preached to that rear center of gravity leads to a higher MOI and both those things are a good for our game.   Hold onto your Super Size Putter grip, the Frontline model lineup features an array of putters that put the Center of Gravity front and center and as a result lowers the MOI. 
      One of the most astounding statements to this fact was made by Cleveland Golf's Marketing Director Brian Schieke,when he told our very own John Barba,  the forward CG technology in Frontline, once you understand it, can help golfers make a 15-foot putt at the same rate as they can make a 10-foot putt.”
      Well we are going to let five members test one of the Frontline Models and report the results int he form of a very extensive review back to our MGS community. 

      How to Apply
      This is important, so please follow these instructions carefully:

      1. If you haven't already, make sure you're a registered MyGolfSpy Forum member
      2. In this thread (and ONLY in this thread - please don't go back to the blog and apply - it won't do you any good!), tell us the following:

      - Your first name
      - State
      - Your current model of putter
      - What would be your choice of the Frontline putters...select from the Cleveland Golf home page found here .....Frontline Putters left handed model available is the Elvado single bend style. 

      This review opportunity is open to any golfer who resides in the US.  We'll be announcing the testers in this thread next week, so make sure to check back.

      LET'S GET THIS PUTTING PARTY STARTED !!  🎉

      Look there is a ton of confusing information out there about pured shafts and if it actually matters. If it did i would think that every tour player would have it done. I’ve seen claims of yardage increases and various other claims are there any truths to it?

      CLEVELAND GOLF INTRODUCES FRONTLINE,
      A COMPLETELY NEW WAY TO DESIGN A PUTTER
       
      HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 3, 2019 – Cleveland® Golf, where scoring matters, is proud to announce the release of Frontline. With a radical new weighting brings the center of gravity forward, Frontline provides a revolutionary process for engineering a putter. Frontline launches in North America on Sept. 13, 2019.
       
      “We are very excited about Frontline because it is a completely new approach to putter design,” said Jacob Lambeth, Research and Development Engineer at Cleveland Golf. “By pairing an extreme center of gravity with an improved speed optimized face, we’ve designed a putter that uniquely maximizes directional and speed consistency. Combined with slick black cosmetics, great shapes and hosel options for different stroke types, Frontline really is the whole package.”
       
      With Frontline, the challenge was creating a putter that’s powerful enough to counteract miss-hits and provide consistently straighter putts. The foundation of Frontline is Tungsten Forward Weighting, which places two Metal Injection Molded (MIM) tungsten weights in the face of the putter.
       
      For decades, most mallets have weights in the rear of the putter to increase stability on off-center impacts, but this design places the center of gravity in the back of the putter. Frontline does the opposite, bringing the center of gravity forward for more accuracy on the greens.
       
      Frontline features Cleveland’s Speed Optimized Face Technology (SOFT), which normalizes ball speed across the face for consistent distance performance on every putt. Every model in Frontline features an individualized SOFT pattern to help mitigate speed and distance loss, especially on off-center strikes.
       
      Frontline offers three different mallet options that include Cleveland’s 2135 Technology to help with proper alignment when standing over that critical putt. Finally, Frontline offers two different hosel types to help provide a superior fit: single bend and slant neck. The single bend option is ideal for straight stroke types, while the slant neck option fits best for golfers with a slight arc stroke.
       
       
      Key Innovations Inside Frontline:
       
      ·         Forward Weights: With Tungsten Forward Weighting and the center of gravity positioned closer to the face, Frontline provides better stability through impact for straighter, more accurate putts.
      ·         Speed Optimized Face Technology: Cleveland’s proprietary Speed Optimized Face Technology normalizes ball speed across the face, ensuring consistent distance performance on all your putts.
      ·         2135 Technology: Featured on the Elevado, Cero and Iso models, achieve perfect alignment on every putt, regardless of where your eyes are at address.
      ·         Additional Hosel Configurations: Find a superior fit with two different hosel configurations to suit every player’s stroke types.
       
       
      Frontline comes standard with the Lamkin SINKFit Pistol Frontline grip and is available in 33”, 34”, and 35” length options. The Frontline 4.0 blade MAP is $179.99, while the three different mallet models (Elevado, Cero and Iso) MAP is $199.99. The Frontline Elevado, Cero and Iso feature single bend or slant neck hosel options.

      I’m new to reviewing, but here goes. 
      I haven’t seen much about the Ardmore line, never mind the Ardmore 3. It is part of taylormades TP series, and absolutely is worth a look. I recently bought one of the black copper series, and it is awesome. 
      The look:
      It is a smaller, more compact version of a mallet. It reminds me a bit of the odyssey 7 series, but more its stubby awkward cousin. The flanges on the back look like they’d be for scooping a ball up, but this feature does not work very well. Most of the details come in the form of red accents, giving the putter a hot rod feel. The grip is a new superstroke pistol grip, with increased volume in the palm. It makes for a very relaxed hold on the club. 
      The biggest negative is the headcover. When will taylormade stop using Velcro? It’s a pain in the butt! Magnetic closure please!
      Performance:
      This club has 42 degrees of toe hang, so it is great for someone with an arcing putter stroke. It has some decent heft to it, so it feels controlled throughout the swing. The face is very responsive. My prior putter had a softer face, so it felt like I had to hit it harder than I thought based on the length of the putt and speed of the greens. This made lags very difficult to judge. The ball comes off the face of the Ardmore a lot hotter, which makes lag putts far more manageable. The only adjustment comes with downhill putts that are fairly short. It can be difficult to touch them light enough not to see them run way past the hole if your line is off. Speaking of line, the alignment aid is quite nice, making putts very easy to line up. It rolls them true, and I’ve seen my average putts per round go from about 37 with my old putter to 33 with the Ardmore. 
      No more blaming the flat stick for a bad round!
      If you’re someone who has a fairly pronounced arc in your stroke, and struggles with lag putts, I highly recommend this putter. You can’t beat the price either, coming in below the odyssey lines, and well below the spider!

      should long putters be allowed?
