I studied the one you posted but have not seen one in person. Basically looks to me like less head deflection than a standard plumbers neck. In other words the neck looks stronger. I would have to putt with one to really feel perhaps what it does. Maybe absorbs off center torque

I wish they would offer the Truss putter he's actually using though. His isn't center shafted like the retail. I'm also not convinced that the Truss hosel actually does anything. It still branches off of a single point at the shaft so when you miss hit a shot, it will still twist around that single axis just like every other putter. 

Seemore is doing something very similar with their RST Hosel series putters.

Sounds like you have some Trusst issues 😉

I always wonder how many of the new features on clubs are science, and how much are marketing.  But even placebos work if you believe them!

I haven't tried it as I was initially turned off by the looks.  But having spoken to a few people who have tried it and from what I've heard from TM, in simple terms, it offers the benefits of a mallet putter, by offering a heavier putter and higher MOI, but maintaining the look of a blade at address.  

I've been a devoted mallet user for probably 10 years now, with the exception of a brief two week fling with a blade last year---it was so sweet to me in the pro shop, then started getting temperamental when I brought it home 🙂   So thought of the best of both is intriguing.

That nifty set of initials on the outer bottom edge of the putter suggests that DJ could have whatever he wants for his putter design, and so he should.  As long as the putter is balanced, a center hit shouldn't cause any twist as the center of gravity is providing the momentum transfer.

tour seeding of new designs happens before anything comes to retail or remains a tour only aka proto product. It’s possible dj liked the putter but wanted something that looked, felt or performed a little different and they gave him this version that r&d had been working on.

Come pga show next year this could be an offering.

To be honest I don't think they're selling enough of these to continue the lineup that long. Kind of a dud. 


My bag is a revolving door!

If DJ keeps winning with it that could change. The spider became a hot item when day started winning with it.

Even so it’s not the first product that didn’t last for them or other brands.
