The same ultra-low balance point that enables the S7K to stand has a second benefit: It promotes better acceleration through impact. Think of the head like a steel ball on a string, with gravity almost pulling the putter through the stroke – just let it swing and it will follow the true path.
“The S7K has incredible feel,” Krasniewicz raved. “Sometimes I have stone hands, but with this it just seemed to (be) fluid through my hands to the end of the club.”
Now let’s examine that same balance point from above the putter. As you look down, the balance point is in line with your trailing (dominant) hand. Why is this important? Well, the typical putter’s balance point is farther back in the head and disconnected from your hands – making it harder to feel yourself squaring the blade at impact.
Savvy equipment types might think this would lower the S7K’s Moment of Inertia (MOI) and sacrifice stability. Nope. With an MOI of 7,000 grams-centimeters squared (g-cm2), the S7K ranks among the highest on the market.
Long story short: The S7K is incredibly easy to square at impact without manipulating the blade with your hands. And that means pure rolling, hole-tracking putts, stroke after stroke.
