• Nike Golf releases Method Converge putter
• Features innovative 'CounterFlex' technology
• Customise weight of your putter quickly and easily
Struggling with your putting? Worried about the impact the upcoming anchor ban is going to have on your game next season? Fear not. Nike Golf reckons it might have found the solution.
It has today unveiled its new Method Converge putter, designed to help golfers achieve their ideal equilibrium.
It features innovative CounterFlex technology: a 75-gram moveable weight system that is located inside the grip and can be adjusted on a 15-inch slide.
Cooked up in Nike’s acclaimed golf research and design facility, ‘The Oven’, CounterFlex technology changes the club’s moment of inertia and the overall swing weight, ensuring ‘anchor-like stability’ that can be adjusted to suit any stroke.
Nike Master Modelmaker David Franklin explained that the new tech came from detailed research into when, where and why golfers perform to their best on the greens.

“Our research tells us that only 30% of golf athletes found his or her best match of rhythm and tempo when the weight was locked in the top of the slide, as is the case with most fixed mass counter-balanced putters,” said Frankin. “The remaining 70% played better when the 75 grams were located in the middle or bottom position.
"We now live in a world where we want things instantly. We all want to make a change, and make it quickly. That world has now come to putters. No longer do you need to book a custom fit and get the weighting of your putter fitted to your own requested spec – now you can do it instantly with this new Nike model. This is, quite simply, brilliant innovation and, best of all, it’s very easy to dial in you’re your desired spec using the CounterFlex weight system. Kudos to Nike, this is exceptional tech at a pretty good price point." Bryce Ritchie • bunkered editor
“With CounterFlex we have infinite positions for the weight, so athletes can actually tune it to get their delivery and timing smoothed out and perfect at impact.”
He added: “One of the key components to putting is a stable stroke and delivery at impact. Whether you’re a tour player or an amateur, CounterFlex offers adjustability to tune the putter to get the most stable delivery at impact.”
