Thanks go out to Tracel Nackel from TEN Marketing and PR for sharing this release.

I have to admit. Prior to my receiving of this release I had never heard of Sacks Parente Golf. After reading this release and researching them I will say that I’m looking forward to rolling some putts next week at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida. Sacks Parente Golf will be present at Demo Day when it takes place on January 22nd at Orange County National Golf Resort and Lodge.

Sacks Parente Golf is based in Camarillo, California and judging by what I’ve seen. Sacks Parente designs exquisite putters. Among them is their Series 39 Blade Putters. With features like their patented Ultra Low Balance Point (ULBP) technology that “lowers the balance point along the shaft between the sole and a point not more than 5 inches above the sole, causing the putter head to square and release at impact, delivering exceptional rollout and accuracy”.

Stay tuned to UTNT for coverage from the 2019 PGA Show as I roll these putters from Sacks Parente Golf.

 

CAMARILLO, CA, January 15, 2019 – Sacks Parente Golf Company, builders of exceptional putters that defy convention, introduces its innovative new Series 39 blade putter. Available in both a Players Edition and a Tour Edition, the Series 39 putters feature Sacks Parente’s patented Ultra Low Balance Point (ULBP) technology that lowers the balance point along the shaft between the sole and a point not more than 5 inches above the sole, causing the putter head to square and release at impact, delivering exceptional rollout and accuracy.

The Series 39 features extreme perimeter weighting using lightweight face inserts along with more tungsten in the toe and heel than any other putter, resulting in a true blade with a higher MOI than most mallet putters. The flawlessly balanced 39 features a perfectly placed center of gravity which stabilizes the head while in motion and through impact, eliminating gear effect and side spin. The result is an exceptional putting instrument that will allow golfers of all skill levels to make more putts.

 

The Series 39 Tour Edition is made from 316L surgical steel, featuring a light weight face insert made from AL24, Sacks Parente’s proprietary alloy material, that absorbs vibration 100 times better than steel. To maximize the MOI, the Series 39 has over 120 grams of high-density tungsten strategically located in the faces at the heel and toe.

 

“To our knowledge, 120 grams of tungsten is the most tungsten ever placed in a putter head to influence its playability and MOI,” said Rich Parente, Co-Founder of Sacks Parente Golf. “This weighting helps diminish putter twist, resulting in far less energy loss and more accurate ball rollout even on putts hit off center.”

 

Sacks Parente has numerous patents and patents pending in regard to the science associated with their game-changing putter technology.

 

“Our putters are designed, engineered and crafted from only the finest steels, alloys, aluminums, composites and tungsten,” added Parente. “They are assembled with rigorous attention to detail and every component is produced to the most exacting standards possible.”

Sacks Parente uses a standard head weight of 350-360 grams and has focused on technologically advanced shaft and grip design to solidify their ULBP technology. Sacks Parente shafts have been engineered from the ground up to meet specifications never before contemplated in a putter shaft. These shafts weigh between 30-35 grams, are extremely stiff, and transmit a feel not achievable with steel. Achieving this level of performance at less than 1/3 the weight of a typical steel shaft is an engineering marvel that translates to more putts made.

 

At an average weight of 30 grams Sacks Parente grips are less than half the weight of typical grips found in today’s market. These unique grips are designed and engineered to enable the ULBP technology, and to also meet the SPG specific requirements for feel and comfort. They come in three variations, to meet every golfer’s unique grip style.

 

“It’s not often that you have legends of the golf industry come together to create a business,” said Tim Triplett, CEO of Sacks Parente Golf. “In the case of Sacks Parente Golf Company, we have combined the talents, commitment and drive of two legends in golf, Steve Sacks and Rich Parente. After years in development, we are excited to introduce our new line of putters that defy convention and actually improve a player’s game.”
