The Ruru was the second putter to be designed and produced by RPM Discs. This putter is known widely in the niche of RPM fans as a good throwing putter and putting putter alike. As a putting putter, the Ruru is perfect in the Magma and Strata baseline blends. It is a deep dish beaded putter that is great for players with larger hands. My hands are far from large hands so for putting I prefer the Tui from RPM over the Ruru but I bag both as throwing putters. Both the Cosmic and Atomic Ruru are great throwing putters that are pretty much point and shoot. If you really torque on them they will definitely turn over but if you throw the Ruru nice and soft you can get a VERY straight flight out of this one which is a great compliment to the more understable Tui. My favorite plastic for the Ruru however, is the Cosmic Glow Ruru. In my experience the Glow Ruru is the most overstable of all plastics. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t by any means an overstable throwing putter but if you are looking for a more turn resistant Ruru, this is the plastic for you. I use the Ruru when I am 150′ – 200′ from the basket and I need a good straight low powered shot with a soft finish. I can also use the Ruru at this same distance with some hyzer to get a good controllable fade without worrying about it hitting and skipping like a Zone or Harp type OS putter may get. As always with RPM, the feel of the plastics are all amazing and the stamp is incredible. This pretty little Owl (Morepork) is sure to make you smile on the course!
