TaylorMade TP Patina Soto Putter Review
Massively toe hung blade putter which is part of the TP Patina range
The TaylorMade TP Patina Soto putter is one of seven designs in the new range released in 2019.
The TP Patina range includes the Ardmore 1, Ardmore 2, Ardmore 3, DuPage, Del Monte and Juno putters. The Soto is one of the traditional blade options.
All seven designs have a black nickel and copper colour scheme for an attractive worn look, and are jam-packed with the latest technology to help you hole more putts.
What TaylorMade says about the Soto putter:
“Long Curve Hosel provides a traditional look at address and a Single Sightline provides a clean look at address while enhancing alignment.
“A thicker 5mm aluminum insert offers great sound, a solid feel, and was designed to optimize roll characteristics.
“A new patina finish that combines black nickel and copper to create a reveal on the edges and sole of the putter. This patina finish creates a rich, clean, and unique look that oxidizes over time.”
