Cameron Studio Select Announced

Published

on

For quite a while, Scotty Cameron fans have been longing for a putter that was reminiscent of the original Studio Stainless line.

Clean lines, simple visuals, and no insert are just a few of the changes many golfers wanted to see in the update to the Studio Style series. It seems that Cameron is paying close attention to what his fans want, because the announcement of the Studio Select putters this week seems to include everything golfers have been asking for with a few improvements added for good measure. The biggest change with this line is the amount of customization possible. Head weight, shaft length, lie angle, neck style, and grip can be selected to fit a golfer’s individual preferences. The Studio Select will be made from 303 stainless steel and feature three prominent red dots in the cavity and face which are very popular on Cameron’s Tour putters including one belonging to a Mr. Eldrich “Tiger” Woods.

In his previous models, Cameron held fast to head weights which corresponded directly to shaft length. The shorter the putter, the heavier the head needed to be in order to maintain proper feel. The Studio Select has two circular weights drilled into the sole so head weight can change to fit the corresponding shaft length. According to Scotty Cameron, “Most putter heads are only weighted for 35-inch shafts and therefore, are much too light for shorter lengths, or too heavy for longer lengths.  Too often the same heads are placed in shafts of all lengths.  The result is the golfer having to hit at the ball instead of being able to stroke the ball, and that creates distance control problems.  The Studio Select putter line delivers a wide range of specifications and options, designed to accommodate a wider range of golfer requirements.”

In addition, the Studio Select will also be offered in two head shapes, Newport and Newport 2 as well as three different neck styles including plumbers, short flair, and the mid slant neck many golfers have missed. Not only can golfers pick a putter that suits their eye, but they now have a tremendous amount of control over the amount of toe hang on the putter. So a putter can now fit your stroke as well as your eye.

The lie angle of the putter can be adjusted anywhere from 69 to 73 degrees. The standard grip will be the new red Cameron Cord, although six different grip options are possible including, Black Studio Design, Red Studio Design, Black Baby T, Red Baby T, and Red Winn AVS Midsize. The Studio Select putters will be available March 15 at a MSRP of $325.

    With this weighting will you have an option to weight the heal heavy in an attempt to make face balanced or close to.

    The fitting options are great, but I don’t think this new line is as visually appealing as the Studio Style.

    Nice way to keep cost down for Titleist. Make one head and weight to shaft length.

    Can’t wait to see these in stores.

    There is not a 2.5 model offered.
    The 4 models offered are:
    Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, & Newport 2 Mid Slant.

    Karl,

    The Newport 2.5 will have the “Short Flair” which is the Santa Fe neck.

    Eric,

    The only lefty model will be the Newport 2 in 33, 34, 35″.

    Will it be available with the Santa Fe style neck?

    Rich,

    Shouldn’t be a problem getting one at any store around late March or early April.

    I would imagine checking with one of our sponsors would give the opportunity to pre-order one as well if you’re that impatient.

    I have been anticipating the release of this putter since I saw a sales sample online. This may be a novice question, but will I be able to walk into Golf Galaxy and purchase one of these, or are they only going to be availbel via ordering?

    This is the best Newport series from Cameron in years. The classic lines, no insert, personalized weights/lengths/necks all demonstrate attention to detail and responsiveness to customer feedback. If it performs as well as the Studio Stainless line, I think this will be a great success.

    The only thing I see that is a negative is the inability for the customer to adjust the weight (via a weight kit). We’ll see how long Cameron holds out on the opportunity to up-sell an additional accessory!

    Only issue I see is you can still only order 35/330, 34/340, or 33/350 no other combination. It then has to be sent in to change.

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.

Also on the range from the company were new FH “Future Heritage” Forged V1 wedges with a different, more raw look than the ones we saw in October at the Shriners Open.
