And headcovers with magnets instead of velcro.

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.

My problems with the velcro, besides wearing out easily, is that it can scratch the putter. I've noticed this on my Scotty. Whenever I use a velcroed AME headcover, I have to make sure to take the cover off on the softer side of the velcro. I like how Odyssey uses magnets in their covers, at least the new hot sauce one I just picked up has one.

Either way I'm looking for a darker finish, maybe black or a dark gun metal grey.

I'm sure i read on here not long ago that Scotty was planning on going back to a darker finish. Judging by the pics on the golfwrx instagram page a few hours ago it suggests he is going back to black as there is a full array of Selects and mallets both in black. Would personally like to see him ditch the inserts, they're crap.

I've just had a 2017 Newport refinished in black with black shaft, looks like i read Scotty's mind!

Hmm, looks like the second and third on left have no insert, one can only hope.

My money is on the new line of Newport’s being in the black finish with silver colored stainless insert. Similar but in reverse of 2012 and 2014 Select lines.

I'd like to see Cameron introduce an "Old School" line with stepped shafts.  No inserts, no dots & less branding.  My favorite is still the Studio Stainless Newport 2 with the Tri-Sole.  Some things just work.

100% agree.

IMO, there is complete discordance between what the pros want and the SC retail line up (for YEARS).

That's not completely surprising as it keeps the value of circle T's ridiculously high.

Another reason might sound like "the mass market" likes shiny putters with inserts and new technology. Without evidence, I don't buy that one bit.

Oddly, in the sneaker community, sneakerheads drive major change. They don't allow Nike/Adidas/etc to release premium products that are markedly different from what's worn on court/field. Regardless of what the "mass market" would be ok with, brand loyalists and the sneaker community are HEARD.

With that said I don't understand why what's in the store continues to be COMPLETELY different than what's visible on tour.

I just want them to get ride of cross hairs and bring back the 2.7. I love the way my notchback feels but hate the ears on it. SC has great head shapes but tries to be too cute with the aesthetics. I think design your own putter from the custom shop would be cool. Charge a little more but get the exact Cameron you want.

I agree, definitely a disconnect between what tour golfers want and what's available retail. But I think this is mostly related to their branding strategy. As you say, they keep the value of Circle T's high (very high). But its more than just that, its almost like they have defined the retail line and the Circle T line as completely separate brands. They never mix the two, so you have to assume they are doing this on purpose because they want to keep the brands separate.

Also having the Circle T line's prices stay high helps to justify the premium image of the retail line. Of course you can't afford a 5k putter, but you can afford $425. Sounds reasonably priced in comparison. Don't think about the fact that you're buying an insert putter with a piece of tape behind the insert.

I think luxury branding like this is ridiculous, and its the reason I don't buy Camerons. But ultimately this just seems to be part of their market/brand strategy.

It's exactly that sort of brand strategy that puts me off. I got my Cameron a few years ago and I was nuts for 'em. I liked the concept of Cameron putters and the mystique of it all. But Circle-T putters being completely different from retail putters rubs me the wrong way. It's the same thing with pro tennis rackets being a particular layup and not actually available at retail. If your retail line are supposed to be so good that everyone should game them then the pros should be playing them too, not cosmetically similar models. Of course, 009s and Tour Rats and so on aren't even cosmetically similar.

I'm over tour issue everything at this point. I can't reasonably afford it so it isn't worth wanting it. What I do want is a putter that I can sink putts with, even better if I can get my initials stamped into it or have it cosmetically customized to fit my personal wishes. It's far more likely that my next putter will be a bespoke item made by one of the putter artisans rather than another Cameron. I'd like a Mil-Spec or a Tei3 but for the same money I can get pretty close to getting a custom putter and at that point why shouldn't I go that route?

IMOP, since we’ve seen a lot of recent studio releases of inserts looking like the old Studio Style inserts... we could see this next release switch up the SSS insert type to more of the old studio style type.

Also, the M1, M2 and notchback mallets would probably be upgraded with the harder aluminum inserts they put in the 2017 futura’s.

Just a guess, I have zero insight into any of it.

I'm hoping that they make their blades a little bit more compact. I feel they are way to long and look goofy.

I don't really like the new inserts, but are they really cheaper to make? Why is a milled insert cheaper to manufacture than just milling the face?

Don't think you are correct on a "just a trademark", while it is trademarked , it is in reference to type of metal,  "German Stainless Steel".....

Scotty offers full milled putters, they are at gallery:)

While you are correct RIP to the classic styles. Was told by man himself, don't ever expect any of old styles coming to retail as there is no market, I'll never understand as most "scotty heads" I know play a blade style from older lines, but this is what keeps gallery pumping I would assume. If you want a rare piece, you can pay the price...

How about a Futura 5.5 with a 1.5 or 2.5 neck like Justin Thomas uses?? That's what I'm talking about for 2018!!!!

I used to think that was going to happen and I just couldn’t wait but the more I think about it the more I talk to my other Scotty fans I think this model will never be released as a normal release to protect the circle T collectors.  Maybe even a special edition like 1-500 comes out but I just don’t see this ever hitting the market.  What does everyone think, I’m obviously just guessing.

I don't really like the new inserts, but are they really cheaper to make? Why is a milled insert cheaper to manufacture than just milling the face?


You would think with more of an assembly factor the cost would be higher, but to mill that solid piece , its harder to maint. Uniformity on a bigger continuous mill.

Think Automotive panel, one of the hardest outer skin to manufacture is a hood, due to the surface area being the greatest

GSS isn’t a grade ; it’s a trade mark owned by titleist , yet ppl pay +5k for the stuff

Hats off to Scotty there

Circa 2010 studio select RIP Scotty Cameron

At least bettinard makes a full milled option

IMOP the worst ; are the inspired by series, who the hell are they targeting with that , some guys wife trying to do something nice for a birthday , anniversary, etc?   They aren’t even close by design standards.  Nice inventory audible though , let’s take some cheap insert WIP putters and through some whorish characteristics on them and call them « inspired by »

Bettinardi , making putters great again

Don't think you are correct on a "just a trademark", while it is trademarked , it is in reference to type of metal,  "German Stainless Steel".....

Scotty offers full milled putters, they are at gallery:)

While you are correct RIP to the classic styles. Was told by man himself, don't ever expect any of old styles coming to retail as there is no market, I'll never understand as most "scotty heads" I know play a blade style from older lines, but this is what keeps gallery pumping I would assume. If you want a rare piece, you can pay the price...

maybe I wasn't clear enough; GSS is traded marked German Stailess Steel correct , BUT what is  NOT is a special grade etc.    Not a Patended grade or specialized production process vs a standard ASTM 303 SS or 316 etc.  Less someone  Reveals that there is some special manufacturing process  involved with GSS or a propritary grade (which as a matter of fact that its only Trade Marked suggests no special properties) its plain Jane SS that was produced in Germany mostly like to an ASTM tolerance and shares the same metallurgical tolerance and surface characteristics as any other ASTM 303 grade, if my memory is correct, the Euro std fro SS 303 grade is very close to the US STD, and I think the US std might be a bit more restricted.

What is the Difference Between a Patent and a Trademark

Patents prevent others from making or selling an invention, but trademarks protect the words, phrases, symbols, logos, or other devices used to identify the source of goods or services from usage by other competitors. Trademarks give the owner exclusive use of certain images and phrases, and the right to prevent others from using a similar mark that would confuse consumers about who was producing the goods or services the consumer was buying.

Typically, overlap does not occur, but in some cases, when a design patent protects the ornamental design of the product and the design is also used as an identifying symbol, both trademark and patent protection may apply.

Make more sense?    


Really no market for the old styles?   What is exactly in the studio in terms of putter heads and design?  Start at 2G?

I'm not disagreeing, I'm just telling you what Mr. Cameron (to avoid confusing Scott at gallery) told me,  ....a circa #3 or Monterey are my favorite heads beside 009. I just don't understand no market, as if the question was brought to Cameron owners, im sure most would take opportunity to grab a style from the past. In a tour version of that head its most likely much more than $2k as I think lowest price is $2500 now, but to add to that, the older shaped heads are usually GSS and in $6-10k range. But as for the OTR demand, I'll never understand that as many people have certain older heads that if they knew now would have bought multiple back ups 10 years ago....cheers, enjoy your day

Back to the topic, anyone know what is coming next year?  Non black Notchback or 2.7, hopefully DM or no insert is the answer I am looking for  :-)

My guess is that we'll get something like the putter on the right (with an insert).

Meanwhile, I'll continue to pray for the insert-less SSS dancing cameron on the left (also, in SOMETHING ELSE than Newport 2 for us lefties). #dreams

(sorry, it appears you have to click on the picture to see both putters)
