Mantis Golf announces introducing new Mantis "B" blade putter

WILTON, Conn. -- Mantis Golf, maker of fine putters with specialized patented qualities to enhance putting success, will introduce a new blade, the Mantis "B", at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, to take place Jan. 21-24 in Orlando, Fla. Mantis Golf will exhibit its putter lines at the outdoor Demo Day, Jan. 21, at Orange Country National Golf Course, as well as in the indoor putting area and in booth # 1858, Jan. 22-24, at the Orange County Convention Center.

"After the extraordinary reception of our original Mantis mallet putter, we have received equally enthusiastic interest in a Mantis blade, so we are happy to introduce it this year," said Chris Maher, CEO of Mantis Golf. "Our heel-shafted blade is the perfect complement to our original face-balanced mallet, providing a Mantis option for any putting style."

The Mantis "B" features the same superior quality and craftsmanship as do all the Mantis putter designs, including the signature Mantis patented green finish, so the putter blends with the putting surface to avoid distracting the golfer's eye. Just like the Mantis mallet putter, the Mantis "B" is available in various lengths, is constructed of the finest materials and features design characteristics of great appeal.

About the Mantis "B" Putter
The Mantis "B" blade putter is constructed of soft 304 stainless steel with a polyurethane face insert that promotes good feel and sound. Its heel-toe weighted design provides forgiveness on off-center impacts. Unlike the face-balanced Mantis mallet putter, the Mantis "B" features a toe-down hosel orientation. The non-reflective finish of the Mantis "B" prevents distracting glare. With a weight of 355 grams and a 4225 g/cc2 moment of inertia, the Mantis blade putter offers remarkable balance, feel and performance. The Mantis "B" features a Custom Winn grip and is available in the following shaft lengths: 33", 34" and 35".

About Mantis Golf
With a blend of old-world craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology, Mantis Golf putters feature the finest workmanship and built-in performance elements to help golfers discover and refine their most effective putting strokes. Retro in its simplicity yet revolutionary in its concept, the Mantis putter, with its patented green finish and face-balanced construction, is designed to minimize the visual attention a golfer gives to the putter and maximize attention to the ball and the line of the putt, thus producing a smoother putting stroke and more consistent results. With a color to match the putting surface, minimal alignment markings and a matte finish to reduce reflection, the Mantis putter, which conforms with USGA rules, does not fight the ball for attention. After all, the putter is part of the show, but the ball is the hero.

Founded in 2012 by Michael Dill and Chris Maher, Mantis Golf Company, which made its debut at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show, was launched with one initial mallet design. Expansion plans include additional putter-head designs as well as the possibility of other clubs where the patent-pending green utility may provide the same benefit.
