Over the last 12 months THP has learned a lot about SeeMore putters and why they have so many avid users. Back in May of this year they won our Huge Putter Shoot Out that featured more than 25 different putters from just about every manufacturer available. THP even got a history lesson and education of sorts from the SeeMore golf company in our week long segment we did entitled Putter Week. However during the entire year we had one complaint from readers that were used to a specific putter style and that was “When will we see an Anser version and how will it work?”. Well the folks at SeeMore Putters have answered your question with the soon to be released DB-4 featuring Rifle Scope Technology 2 (RST2) and a classic look that is sure to be on quite a few shopping lists.
From the Company
We have had our most avid fans asking about this putter for the last few months as the first one or two initial protos showed up on tour late in the season. This will offer your readers early insights into one of our most exciting new putter introductions in the last 10 years. It is the official launch of RST2, which is a new version of our patented and proven RifleScope Technology (RST) adapted specially for a classic design offset hosel putter. The RST2 alignment system is housed on the top of the hosel vs. our original RST system which is found on the top heel section of the putter.
The primary benefit of the new DB4 with RST2 is that is will still offer the golfer many of the key benefits of our original RST technology. First, by hiding the red dot and lining up the 2 white lines behind the shaft, the golfer will be assured that the putter is square to the intended target line. As the RST lines are milled with 100% precision parallel to the milled face of the putter, the golfer knows that when the 2 white lines are visible, that the putter is not open or closed, and that the putter is fixed in a neutral position where the loft of the putter head will be optimal for perfect roll on every putt. Finally, the golfer also can be confident that by lining up the 2 white lines, and making sure the red is not visible, that his eyes and shoulders and hips will all be square to the intended target line. This means that the golfer will enjoy a much greater probability of making a consistently perfect stroke with each and every putt, leading to more made putts and lower scores due to improved putting.

The SeeMore DB-4 arrived at our offices and we got 1 look at it and new it was a keeper. The club has what you would expect from a SeeMore putter at first glance which was a great finish (more on that shortly) and the lower portion of the shaft being done in black. From the there obvious changes were of course the shape and style of the putter. The popular Anser style is extremely classic and traditional and will fit the eye of just about every golfer. The hosel has SeeMore written on the front of it and RST 2 written on the back of it in white bold letters. The cavity of the putter also has SeeMore written in white and the lettering chosen works well. The sole of this club has the classic SeeMore RST logo and the model number (DB-4) next to it near the heel and then 100% Milled, the type of metal, and USA near the toe of the putter. This being a prototype it also says 1st Run 029 of 250. The “red dot” is planted just where they say it is and is far more subtle than the original RST. For those used to the original setup, this could take a minute or two to get used to, but it seems to work exactly the same way. The face of the putter has a nice milled texture that seems to almost dance in the sunlight.
