The Scotty 009M is basically a copy of the new Ping Vault Dale Head.

I would preferr the original, all milled Dale Head with changeable weights. If only the face were traditionally milled....

How is a putter Cameron's made for years a copy of a NEW ping model?  And yes, I know the 009 shape is a riff on the anser.  Yes, Ping originated a lot of modern putter designs that pretty much every company now sells but that Vault putter is a Scotty knockoff, not vice versa.  Milled construction, fancy milled face, changeable weights in the sole.  Those aren't Ping innovations.

The TR Milled face is a Ping innovation . And it works.
The Vault face is a bit of a rip off of Machine's VMG face. Everyone borrows or steals of whatever we're calling it.

Very true!

I miss the Karsten series that came out shortly after the Redwood line was released.  I had both and preferred the cheaper Karsten, which retailed for roughly $100.  Been hard for me to even look at another OTR Ping with the prices they command these days.

I’m a big Ping fan, but until they move away from TR grooves, I won’t even consider purchasing another Ping putter. The Redwood line was the apex of their OTR offerings and I’m fortunate to own a Redwood D66 and Starshot Anser. Throw in my BeCu and BeNi Scottsdale Ansers and I’m quite content with my current collection of Pings.

Me too, but that said, I would not shell out $300+ for a putter only to see them selling for $100 or less in the bargain barrel a year later.

My current flat stick is a and IWI D66 that I picked up for $60.00 last year. I love it. My backup is my dad's old bronze J-Blade.
