VIVA Las Vegas, baby! If that’s not your thing though, I can assure you the sunny sights of San Diego will be.
Post my lockdown online shopping frenzy, it’s not often I’ve gotten excited about opening a box, but it’s even rarer when I’m so excited I need to rip and tear into it in the car.
Boy, was I pleased with what I saw! I first noticed the dark green putter cover which was a sight for sore eyes, but was even more impressed when I saw the head design on both models.
The blade shape on the Toulon San Diego model is definitely more traditional whereas the Toulon Las Vegas has a more modern design.
The charcoal coloured putters look amazing when paired with their dark forest coloured covers … and they’re the epitome of class and elegance.
Both the Toulon Las Vegas and Toulon San Diego model use the ground-breaking Stroke Lab gold shaft technology as well as the deep diamond mill across the face which helps the ball roll quicker.
The putters measure 35 inches long, but can be custom fit, which means you’re bound to find a putter that works for you.
It was a real treat to test these putters out, and they both performed beautifully.
One of the key features I loved about each putter was the weight. I’ve used some light putters in my time so I was impressed by the comfortable weight, which helps with start line, strike and distance control.
Both putters felt great and were a pleasure to putt with … and I loved the sounds the ball made off the face. To the naked eye, the grip looks like a stock standard grip, however it feels slightly larger making it easier to place on the putter.
The Toulon Las Vegas model is very much the same shape I currently use and is my preference of the two putters. When it comes to feel and distance control, I found that it performed better for me than the Toulon San Diego model.
I got used to the feel of the putter extremely quickly, most likely because I’m already familiar with the shape.
For those looking for a more traditional putter whilst still being elegant, the
Toulon San Diego is right up your alley.
The putter looks simple and is easy to align, while still looking as striking as the Toulon Las Vegas.
If you can’t find me after this review, it’s because I’ve taken off with the two putters to start a very happy life together.
