All I want is for them to release just ONE putter with some variation of a black finish. Tired of being blinded when putting around midday, and will not spend $300 dollars to send my putter in.

He did this a while back and people were complaining about the black finish and a lot (myself included) sent them to the custom shop to get the finish taken off. Now I regret that and wish I still had the black finish.

Only thing I am hoping for is a fastback without the cross alignment aid. I love the headshape of the current fastback but hate the alignment aid.

Maybe a solid milled putter?  Ha!
Yes please.

Oddly enough, I play the M1 mallet, and have grown to hate the cross alignment as well. I feel like if it was close to the face it would help out more, but in its current place it just seems I have to almost take my eyes off the ball to get my alignment (if that makes sense).

Which brings me to customization. I would pay to go through something similar to the Toulon design garage that they set up. I understand that for the vast majority of golfers, one look may be the easiest to sell in a golf shop. However, with how long they are taking to complete customs jobs (4-5 months), why haven't they just created a website that allows you to design the scotty you want? Seems like the demand is more than there for these high value putters.

Cameron 2016 newport putter , yes I had one but I didn't like the feel . Now that may have been due to the midsize grip ? I'm not really a insert guy ! But I also like to hear what you think of a standard traditional grip size verses a 1.0 or 2.0 pistol super stroke ? Anyway I think Cameron may do a dark color since I seen a lot on his tour photos . He's a business and he is going to go full circle ! And someday we may see a oil can carbon or a studio stainless , or a pro platinum again ⛳️

They definitely need to get rid of the pop-up alignment. Regular sight line, no sight line, something different, whatever.

I haven't seen a single tour player using the pop-up alignment.

I'd like a square back without the pop up alignment. Thought it was a good idea but now it just sits with my other putters because I can't stand looking at it.

As someone who plays shorter putters, I love the weights. But, I've definitely had enough of inserts and the "jewelry" look of many of his putters. Let's go back to simplistic and attractive.
This above.

I have a few Scottys, but calling a mallet the Newport 3 just screws up the tradition even more. I too can live without the cheap inserts, the silly stamps and the bling.

Please please please bring back the mid slant. I would love a newport 2 with a midslant neck. I have an older model, but would love the option on a newer model, with the deep milled.

I own a 2016 NP2, and was hoping they would make a GSS insert available... Figured it would be a great putter to experiment with inserts and they could still make some money on "customization" with very little work.   Oh well....

Hope they do start making black putters an option again, I loved that line... Just sent a Del Mar to Continental to get this treatment.  I like the suggestion of a long neck, too... that would be awesome.

This.

Bought a head cover from the Ryder Cup last year and it is magnetic. While it feels like a sin to put a Scotty in a holster made by someone other than Scotty, I just love the magnetic close. Can't be beat. Velcro wears out too easy. Can't believe he hasn't switched already. No brainer IMO.

I have the option to purchase a 2014 Fastback for pretty cheap (250 new). Would you all recommend this or wait for 2018s and pay the 380+?

Please advise

This could be good news if they become part of the Select line...like a 5M of sorts. Not likely I assume though. It'll be interesting to see if it happens.
