The Santa Ana 93 probably made the groomer drivers curse us all night—it ripped six-inch trenches all over their perfect putting greens. Refined, beautiful, and sophisticated, the 93 is a purebred designed to perform everywhere except deep powder. Two sheets of metal and a lightweight balsa core update this year’s model—and testers felt the new muscle. It’s not quick and slalomy; it’s more damp and steady. It’s too powerful to be playful, but experts will appreciate its stuck-to-the-snow tenacity. “This is the chameleon of the group,” Gleason said.

Strengths: Crud, Hard-Snow Integrity
