Nike Ignite Putters

By Mike Camunas

Nike's Ignite putter line is perfect for the average or even the beginner golfer. It's a light weight, easy to use putter that won't leave those inexperienced golfers thinking too much about what to do with grain, slope and lie. Golfers can graduate from these Nike putters, not only to more complex Nike putters, but any type of putter, even going beyond a regular blade putter and using a mallet one instead. Though Nike has gotten out of the golf club business, the Ignite putter is still available from golf's vast secondary marketplace. 


This putter has a full-face polymer insert that is 85 percent lighter than steel and offers a soft responsive feel and increases the putter head's MOI (Moment of Inertia) for a truer roll. The weight savings from the polymer face is redistributed to the heel and toe for more stability in every stroke. Each putter face is machined milled flat to precise tolerances to enhance accuracy and predictability across the club face.


Different putter styles are available to accommodate player preferences. There are six different Nike models with different heads and each comes with a Winn Advanced Integration Pistol Grip.


The lightness of this club, which allows more feel to the golfer, is the greatest benefit this putter has to offer. It still has a weight distributed in the head for smooth follow throughs, but it's not as heavy as other putters because this putter line is for inexperienced golfers. What golfers get from this putter is confidence, knowledge and practice so they can putt better. The putter is designed with plenty of forgiveness, that way a golfer is not out there with five or six putts.


Consider looking at other putters, even if you are a beginner golfer. It's light weight may be an issue for some golfers, so try out a few putters to see whether your prefer heavier or lighter putters.
