Just tried the Futura X today at club I belong to. They let me take it out on a round for a trial. Was using Taylormade Corza Ghost mallet, and thought that was "the one" for me. Well, the Futura X blew it away. Needless to say, I own it now. If you are a straight through putter, with no tilt or lift when you putt, the Futura X practically puts the ball in the hole. It has a very solid contact when hit, and holds the line more true than any other putter I have used, by far. Just have to get used to the weight, and how far the ball will roll when hit. I am convinced this will lower my scores. I have a club tourney coming up, so I am looking forward to seeing how this performs. I realize changing something as important as a putter a week before a tourney could be suicide, but the way the ball comes off the face of this putter is unlike anything I have ever used. By all means, try this putter. I agree the head cover is like a serving platter in size, but as a plus, it holds on to the putter well, and doesn't fall off when I drive the cart like my other covers have. That of course is just a small plus, but hey, good to know there is enough velcro to hold the cover on solidly.
