SIK DW 2.0 C-Series Putter Review
SIK is the putter brand Bryson DeChambeau has used since 2017 and several other PGA Tour winners also employ its flat-sticks. The standard silky silver finish looks great, but we favour the new matte black PVD finish for 2022 as it frames the ball so beautifully and makes the sightline really stand out.
DW stands for ‘double wide’, as this is essentially the width of two Anser-style blade heads. The beauty of this design is that it’s a halfway house between blade and mallet, so could appeal equally to devotees of either style. It’s easy to align and delivers excellent distance control as a result of its Descending Loft Technology (DLT) face design.
SIK’s patented face technology is very clever, comprising four planar surfaces that descend in loft from 4 ̊ at the top of the face down to 3 ̊, 2 ̊ and 1 ̊. Even good golfers don’t always deliver the putter blade to the ball in the same way – leaning the shaft a little forward or back during the stroke and varying where and how they strike it on the blade dictate how well putts launch and roll. The DLT face is designed to moderate such inconsistencies, making it stand out from the best putters on the market.
If you make contact with the ball higher on the face, you’ve delofted your putter, so DLT adds the loft back higher on the face to get the ball rolling quicker. If you hit it lower on the face, you naturally add loft to the putter, so DLT corrects the launch the other way. The idea is that wherever you make contact, you always end up with an ideal launch angle of 1.5 ̊ to 2 ̊ and therefore better distance control and accuracy on the greens. You can also try the SIK DW C-Series putter in Armlock for more consistency and multiple hosel and sightline options are available to suit your stroke.
We can vouch for the consistency, which was impressive in our testing. On short putts, the ball seemed to hold its line, while longer putts tended to travel the appropriate distance more often than not. Of course, we could just have been striking all our putts perfectly, but somehow we doubt that!
