Bob Parson’s naval watercraft-inspired putter is now not a tour-only issue. PXG are officially releasing the Mini Gunboat putter to retail. Valued at $550 US, the Mini Gunboat offers similar design features as the original Gunboat design, building upon the alignment ease, forgiveness and high MOI of the original; essentially offering similar attributes in a smaller profile.
Two models area available, the Mini Gunboat and Mini Gunboat H which feature differing shafts and balance points; the Mini Gunboat featuring a single-bend shaft and being face balanced, whilst the H model has a straight bend shaft and is a mid-toe down balanced putter. Both models are made from the same billet-milled 304 stainless steel as the original Gunboat. They also feature the same TPE core technology and perimeter weighting. According to PXG, the TPE face offers preferred sound, feel, response and more efficient mass distribution for a high MOI.
