What we say...
Milled from a solid block of 6061 aluminium the Vault mallet putters have been inspired from Ping’s work with its stable of tour pros. The Oslo has a stainless steel sole plate to lower CG and raise stability and MOI. True Roll face technology sees grooves milled to different widths and depths which help speed up off centre hits to increase putting consistency. A new oversize Pistol 62 grip promotes even and consistent grip pressure.
The Oslo’s a bit of a brute when it comes to head size and definitely had the biggest head within our mallet category. That stretched wide head means excellent off centre forgiveness though and paid dividends for two of our testers, who holed a stack of putts from different distances with this model. Some will say the heads a bit dull and lacks the excitement of any changeable sole weights, counter weighting or a face insert, which is surprising at this price. But we can report the Oslo did what its oversized aluminium body’s supposed too and helped hole more putts.
A very good if pricey blend of stability, simple alignment and forgiveness which is just what many golfers need. Our testers couldn’t agree the huge grip was for everyone as its softer edges weren’t quite as good for feeling when the putter face is square, but overall the Oslo is a very solid, stable putter from any distance.
