REVIEW: Round 4 Saber Putter
The putter I found unique to Round 4 was the Saber. It has a classic blade shape, kind of like an 8802, but it is paired with a different hosel. Most putter this shape have kind of a flow neck that just goes straight from the shaft to the head. The Saber has a modified plumbers neck that gives this putter a different look, but also a different function with some off set between the shaft and the putter head. It also has a tight milling pattern on the face for nice look and feel at impact. The soft 1018 carbon steel metal used in this putter also makes it feel very soft. The Black Oxide finish looks great even though it might require a little silicone cloth wipe downs to keep it looking new.
Lately in the golf world there has been a great deal written about face tech. While I think that forward roll and groove technology can be of benefit, sometimes it is just the right combo of feel, shape, weight and alignment that make a putter work. The Round 4 Saber is the right combo for me. I’ve used Arccos and Shot Scope to track my putter stat while using the Round 4 and found my best putting stats ever with this putter in the bag. My first round with this putter I had 4 birdies in the first 9 holes. It was actually even better than that stat, I rolled in 6 different 1-putts during that stretch to get to 3-under par for 9 holes. (my best 9 hole score ever). It continued for the next 6 rounds of golf I’ve played. I’ve only had couple of 3 putts ever with this putter and more 1 putts than other putters I’ve had in the bag.
The Round 4 Saber putter simply makes putts. It looks great, it feels amazing, it has great milling, it is top quality and helps me score. While it might not be a big MOI mallet, or some crazy face tech, the results on the green are as good as I’ve ever seen. You need to check a Round 4 putter out for yourself. They have 4 milled putter options or a bazillion imaginable 3D printed putters. I think you will be impressed with the quality of the putter as well as the performance. Round 4 Putters are just making putts.
