Cleveland Frontline Elite Rho Slant Neck Putter
Our latest full-bodied mallet offering, RHO features advanced shaping in a thoughtfully crafted head design, paired with a slant neck hosel, best suited for a slight arc stroke.
With a one-of-a-kind Tungsten SOFT face, model-specific sole/counterbalance weighting, and our 2135 Technology, everything about Frontline Elite is designed to help you hit straighter putts with consistent distance and incredible feel.
BEHIND THE SCENES OF A FORWARD CG
Alrighty, gather round, class. When you strike a Putter off-center, it rotates, imparting sideways forces that push your putt off-line. But with a rear-biased CG, the effect gets exaggerated.
REARWARD CG PUTTER
See that huge circle in the graphic above? That's the path of rotation for this Putter's face. So, if you hit the ball off-center, the face's movement along this large arc is going to shove your putt far off-line.
FORWARD CG PUTTER
The same miss-hit on a front-weighted Putter causes its face to rotate along a small arc. See the small circle above? That smaller arc means less off-line force, so miss-hit putts roll straighter.
See those densely-grouped grooves in the center of the face gradually spreading out toward the heel and toe? Cool, right? That's our Speed Optimized Face Technology (SOFT).
Those grooves balance energy transfer across the face, so even if you miss the center, putts still make it to the hole without stopping short.
CONSISTENT SWING FEEL
New, adjustable sole weights in the head of every Frontline Elite model, along with counterbalance weights beneath the grip, ensure swing feel is consistent no matter which model or shaft length you choose.
If you prefer a heavier or lighter feel, sole weight pairs or full sets are available for order, separately.
Consistent alignment depends on your eyes being directly over the ball, every time, which is a taller order than most think. Our 2135 Technology—featured on all Frontline Elite mallets—positions the sightline on the exact center axis of the ball to help you achieve perfect alignment every time, regardless of your address.
To provide the full-bodied look mallet players prefer, the weighting required for great feel, and a performance-enhancing forward CG, Frontline Elite's full mallets use advanced, multi-material designs. Lightweight aluminum, ABS polymer, steel, and tungsten are all carefully assembled to give you optimal performance with premium looks, feel, fit, and finish.
To top it off, all Frontline Elite models are finished in a new, specialized coating that delivers a deep black look with an anti-smudging effect.
