ART AND BALANCE
Year made- 2002, Revision No. 5, Number produced- 10 and numbered 1 through 10
These special satin finished carbon steel Mallet C202.5 putters were designed for Jack Nicklaus' personal use. Built around the C202.5 Mallet Cavity head, these putters were made in a range of weights from 325 to 340 grams for Jack's personal experimentation.
Being Jack's club designer, I always make a small number of each of my new putter designs to his specs, for his personal inspection and use. The remainder of each group, not in his possession, are what you see here.
Together with the Special Edition head cover these rare putters make a limited edition's, limited edition. A very small number of putters made for the greatest player of all time.
Each head is machined from a single solid block of carbon steel which starts with a weight of approximately 11 pounds. This technique ensures continuous metallurgical grain flow throughout the head and neck and consistent harmonics from putter to putter.
The blade is shorter than the A, B, D or E models but much wider.The parallel milled cavity provides perfect alignment edges along with unmatched balance. The sound at impact is distinct among the Personal Edition line with muffled ring for instant feedback.
The patented Long Barrel Straight Slant neck gives a clean view of the ball at address and provides improved feel by making a better connection between shaft and head. The extended socket provides a deeper shaft insertion, less vibration at impact, and super solid feel. The wider blade only inspires confidence.
The patented sighting system incorporates a positive raised center line, with twin outside lines for sure alignment under any lighting conditions. No matter the position of the sun, the raised center line casts a small helpful shadow for alignment aid.
A beautiful, Satin Nickel finish retards wear while resisting rust. This glare resistant finish looks as good as it feels and is virtually maintenance free.
Offset is ¾ shaft and the neck is positioned more into the heel of this model giving it a hanging angle of 42 degrees. Loft is set at 4 degrees. Models are machined from a single piece of soft carbon steel and nickel plated with a glare and corrosion resistant finish.
