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. However, I personally like the aluminum inserts on the Notchback, M1 and M2.

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.
