What we say...

The PXG Blackjack Putter has had every aspect optimised to create what the brand are calling their “best ever”.

The 100 per cent milled mallet-style Blackjack is PXG’s first Battle Ready Collection release and uses a new bi-material construction, combining aerospace-grade aluminum with high-density tungsten to support a deep centre-of-gravity, making it harder to twist the face off its path and easier to deliver it square at impact.

The Blackjack features large, adjustable sole weights and has four hosel options to enable each putter to be made to ensure optimal performance for its user.

The sole of the Blackjack features PXG's iconic Darkness Insignia - a skull with the number 26. The insignia commemorates Bob Parsons' service as a rifleman (0311) with the 26th Regiment of the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War.

What PXG say about the Blackjack putter

"From MOI and CG location to balance and stability, we've optimized absolutely everything on our new Blackjack Putter," says Bob Parsons, PXG Founder & CEO.

"Since putts account for roughly 40 per cent of shots taken, why not put the odds in your favor with PXG's Blackjack Putter?"

PXG BlackJack Putter Tech

Optimised Pyramid Face Pattern

PXG originally introduced this tech in their GEN2 putter. The depth of the grooves is reduced to increase the speed off the putter’s face and ensure consistent speeds across the face. The updated face design helps to ensure consistency in all significant factors that affect roll, including initial ball velocity, launch angle, spin rates and skid distance.

Perimeter Weighting Technology

The balance of the Blackjack can be perfectly tuned by changing the four sole weights and their location. The weighting will be fine-tuned by PXG’s fitters based on the hosel you choose to ensure the ideal weight and launch conditions.

The weights come in 5g, 10g (standard), 15g, and 20g options and are made of heavier tungsten and lighter titanium.

High Density Tungsten Insert

The new insert allowed the centre of gravity to be moved further away from the shaft axis for more face angle stability and an increased MOI… ultimately what we’re all seeking in a putter.

Blackjack Putter Hosel Options

The heel-shafted, double bend, plumber's neck, and armlock hosels ensure the PXG Blackjack putter can be fitted for any stroke, with overall weight ranging from 330g to 445g, depending on the sole weights and hosel used.

Heel shafted (pictured below)

This is fitted far into the heel side of the putter, creating a significant amount of toe hang. This increases the force required to rotate the putter face, making it ideal for players who tend to over rotate the clubhead through impact.

Double Bend (pictured below)

This aligns the shaft axis through the centre of gravity to create a face balanced hang angle, reducing the force required to rotate the putter face and making it ideal for players who push the ball.

Plumber’s Neck (pictured below)

This aligns the shaft axis in the heel for a mid-toe hang angle, significantly reducing rotation. It’s ideal for players who find they rotate the face slightly and can be used effectively by players with straight and arced stokes.

Armlock

With armlock putting becoming more common, PXG have introduced a hosel to help. This option aligns the shaft axis through the centre of gravity to create a face balanced hang angle.

Alignment

A single, bold white sightline through the centre of the black putter head and arrow-like design make alignment easy.

PXG Blackjack Putter Verdict

Like all PXG golf clubs, the Blackjack putter is a premium model and comes with a big price tag, as you’d expect with a 100 per cent milled product and the materials used.

The deep CG makes it exceptionally stable while the high MOI makes it impressively forgiving and easier to square at impact.

The Pyramid Face Pattern provides consistent ball speeds across the face and the adjustable weighting and multiple hosel options, coupled with PXG’s insistence that everyone be properly fitted, means the putter can be perfectly matched to your stroke and needs. It has a clean look, simple but contrasting alignment aids.
