Thé Guy is a marketing genius

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

However , their retail insert line is an abomination of their « tour validation montra of design and testing «   Inserts are cheaper to make , titleist always talks about tour validation, yet very very few insert Cameron  putters being used by the pros.

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

Gallery pieces start @2500 ; whoa

Thanks for the 411
And this is why threads fly off topic. Geezus dude...

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)
Black PVD would be nice. Loose the bombs and the insert though. Please.

The move away from deep milled faces was a good one IMO. Hope the next release stays that way.

I agree with moving away from the ss inserts. Inserts make sense on some high MOI putters but they take away from true feel for other models.

The new Select line will have a Newport, Newport 2, Newport 2.5, Newport 3, Laguna, Squareback

I heard Scotty say there were changes to the pop thru alignment. Can remember the exact details but they may be going away

What do you mean by pop thru alignment? A new Laguna will be nice, but i just have a hard time believing they have managed to keep it this good a secret for 2018. Do you know if the inserts are still there in the 2018 Select line?

No NotchBack or 2.7 in 18, that would be disappointing!

Scotty has been in a mallet obsession lately. Really hope he goes "back to his roots" for the 2018 models and offers some mid slant, long neck, Laguna, Circa 3, etc... type of styles. His releases and model offered bags over the past year or two have been pretty sub par.

In my opinion, that’s been the problem. His inserts have become so muted that they offer very little feedback.

I wish he'd focus more on the face milling and milling techniques to achieve the feel and sound players are looking for. Throwing an insert in just seems lazy.

It’s almost like he’s making terrible OTR putters on purpose to push people towards the circle T’s which are actually very nice

This is the reason I went with a 12 year old Newport 2 for my gamer. I have zero confidence that he will make anything OTR like he did years ago.

I’ve done the same! Gone back to the Studio Stainless Newport Beach...nothing nowadays comes close.

Softer? How much softer can you get? I’ll take my Studio Stainless NP2 over more “vibration dampening membranes” any day.

I do hope that black “Scotty Cameron” cord grip comes on the next retail line. That would bring the price back down to reality on those grips. Love me a nice cord grip.

I agree. My recent Studio Stainless Newport 2 has the PP58 corded Ping grip and it’s the best grip I’ve ever held on a putter. Something just like it with a dancing Cameron would be nice.

Scotty took that exact putter grip and put a dancing cameron on it. Both Ping and Scotty versions are just Golf Pride grips. Called the Cameron Dancing Cord - comes in both Red and Black. Red you can find at any PGA tour superstrore, black you have to either go to ebay or send it in to the custom shop... but i can assure you its the same grip. Both the Scotty's weigh 65g and the Ping Black PP58 cord weighs 85 grams, and the Ping Grey PP58 cord weighs like 58 grams.

I wish he would bring back a bullseye release, but his OTR items are pretty unoriginal now and generally terrible.  His current offerings put a terrible roll on the ball IMO.  I have 3 camerons and not one of them was produced in the past 10 years.

Thanks, maybe I'll send it in for refinishing one day and get the grip. Not paying $70-$80 on EBay for a $12 grip though.

Would love to see a naked Newport, no insert, no gimmicks...

I hope "30% softer insert" means "carbon steel" rather than one more layer of double-sided tape behind the current insert...

That's hideous. The one thing the new futura's had going for them is that they used a harder aluminum than the selects, which put a bullet roll on the ball. If he goes softer... coupled with people using chrome softs and softer balls... it will be like putting cotton balls. WHY IS SOFTER A THING?

Tiger and Rickie are out here using 303 with almost no milling that i can hear the clicks on TV.

I had good luck pulling the insert out of my '16 Newport, removing the 3m tape and reinstalling.  Gave it a bit more click.  Defeats the purpose of an insert, but that's what I was hoping for.

I do have a 5.5m though, and it has quickly become my favorite mallet.

I think I am at point with Scotty Cameron that I am either going to buy a late 90's carbon Santa Fe and have it restored or move on to another brand.  I'm not interested in any of blades he has recycled for the last 6 years.  The X7M is a nice mallet but it's time for a change.

Been reading the last couple pages and there is a lot of good points in this thread.

I have the latest NP2 and while it’s nice to see my name on a putter, use something that was known as the best when I was younger, customize the finish by getting it torched and new paint fill, it is leaving a lot to be desired.

If fallen out of my honeymoon with it and have been on this continuous search for a new putter from any brand. I love the answer style head tho.

Maybe I’ll look into an older SC model like the studio stainless.

Would love to see an M2 with a plumbers neck.

Back in 2004 or so, I bought a SC beached Studio Stainless Newport 2 center shafted prototype for $180, a couple of years later I wanted a plumbers neck Newport 2, unfortunately they were no longer available. I started looking at a circle T since my finances had greatly improved, but faith steped in.

I found a website a website in which I found a putter maker from which I was able to purchase a HIS carbon steel oil can ANSER 2 ( which the Newport 2 is based on) version for the price that as being asked for a decent shape Newport 2,,,, with what I wanted stamped on,,,,

IMHO, either Scotty Cameron (the brand) is no longer controlled by Scotty Cameron the human,,,, or does not think there is a demand large enough which makes bring back the classics profitable enough,,,, or doesn’t know there is a demand for them,,,,,, but I doubt it,,,

I currently playing the older Studio Select Stainless Newport 2. The newer models wasn't that much different, other than milling or insert.  I'm hoping that the 2018 version would come in a black finish w/ white line for contrast, I liked the pics of the black finish with silver insert. Something with a different look than I already have.

Wouldn't mine seeing the Tiger/Fowler style make a comeback. My personal preference would be something milled from carbon steel,  34" w/ 350g head weight.

The only way to get that exact spec now in retail is a Bettinardi BB8.

Correct. Tiger/Rickie is GSS, but the dude asked for Carbon.
