What it does: The challenge? Emulate the feel of the company’s classic milled putters with the forgiveness of a mallet. The answer? Milled stainless steel up front with an aluminium body. The stainless-steel face was engineered with an asymmetrical groove design, called “roll control”, that gets the ball running true quicker.
Why we like it: The 303 stainless steel, the source material for the company’s proven milled blade putters, also provides a tour-
requested feel at impact here. The Inovai 6.0 offers parallel wings seen in previous models (although this update is more compact), and the 8.0 uses a squarish shape that includes an armlock version with 5 degrees of loft. Both aluminium bodies allow for mass distribution in the rear for high stability on off-centre hits.

“It naturally wants to ride the train tracks of alignment. Good distance control; no need to manipulate your stroke.”
