Curious, is $1,200 really worth spending on these?

Is the consistency or roll better or anything other than looks and materials etc?

Trying to justify the cash or not

Thanks

What drives the price is exclusivity not performance.

No.

I really don’t get who buys these silly “collectible” releases from SC, Bettinardi, et.al.

I have a 2016 Tiki Putter that rolls the ball great and a 2018 on the way..
I collect aloha themed things and couldn’t resist the turtle stamping one this years.
Very rare I’d spend 5 bills on a putter.
Don’t think I’d go over that unless it was a full custom. Never 1200$ though. I’d rather spend that on a trip to Bandon or a surf trip

There is no performance advantage to a high priced putter.

Coolness factor...looked at all the bling bling...Scotty's you get a heck of a putter from Bettinardi at 1/4" price and made better overall
Under construction....

When I have putted with some of the higher priced putters I definitely noticed better sight lines and feel. But at 5x plus the price of what I have used in the past...it's totally up to the buyer.  These putters are way more unique and if it brings you confidence on the greens it could be worth it !
