- FADE GEAR
I love the Banger GT. It will be my 'Go-To' putter for life, so I'm always willing to try new ones as they come out. I was stoked to finally see one in ESP plastic.
It has all the great feels of a Banger GT, but it's missing the grip do to the slickness of the plastic. You could chuck this into a tree without worrying about damage, but the grip needed for controlled putting isn't quite there.
Honestly, I've used this as a putter driver for controlled shots through wooded areas or longer island holes within 200 ft. Now, that might seem contrary to what I just said about 'controlled putting' but my grip is totally different for that. Using this as a putter driver allows me to have the same comfort in my hand, but the durability I need in case I play pinball with the trees around me.
I have the Banger GT (standard), soft, ledgestone crystal, and jawbreaker. The Jawbreaker is by far my favorite, but this ESP plastic version will have a special place in my bag for sure.
