Purchased a Studio Stainless Newport 2 brand new in 2004. Nothing has been able to beat this old girl. Iíve owned a few different in the mean time ( Tei3, notchback & most recently a Seemore). I am a pretty solid putter (best part of my game) and the Newport 2 style seems to fit my stroke best. Question is...I like a 35Ē putter and thatís what Iím used to. I struggled with the notchback (34Ē) and constantly felt like it was short. Will I mess with the integrity of a button back if I extend it an inch? I know they were all designed at 34Ē. Appreciate any & all advice

I believe 35" at Studio Stainless Newport 2 has a head weight of 330g. You're struggle might be due to the weight of the head. You could extend the button back to 35" and changed the weight at the bottom to make it to 330g instead of standard at 350g.

Nope
As above you just may want to adjust to head weight to match your studio stainless
if you have the 35 version of that, just need to keep it at 330.

Sorry, not sure what you mean
difficult to get used to the insert?
Different feel for sure from the Stainless (i have the 350 version of yours, and my BB also plays to 350), but I still enjoy both quite a lot

Yeah those are a little harder to find
Ebay has so many fakes, but if you're not worried about it, just go that route
Otherwise, might have to be a custom shop trip

My button back is 34.5".  When I got it, I sold off the headcover and shaft/grip then I had the custom shop reshaft it to 35". It was my gamer for years.  I prefer it just a little shorter now but I still love that putter.  350g is perfect for me.

I lengthened mine to 35 and I think I had 10g weights in it. This was one of the best feeling putters I have ever owned. I will never sell or get rid of mine just on the chance I go back to a blade putter. Would really love to see Scotty do a release of Teryllium putters using today's models, even if its a limited run. Would love to have a Teryllium fastback.

Head weight is such a personal preference thing. Id try it at 35 and see how it feels then check out the weight options if your not comfortable with the setup

Apologies for thread jacking, but would like to get the forum's advice.
When the BB's came out, i purchase it at retail then sent it in to Custom Shop to get my name stamped on the bumpers.
Nothing else was touched, i have a black matador grip installed now and some heavier circle T weights (also have the originals).
I have not gamed this putter for 7+ years and now its just collecting dust with some other non-gamer putters. (i've been using a mallet putter and don't plan to go back to a blade putter). I'm looking to sell the putter, but obviously with the name engraved, not sure if it would make sense to have this removed prior to selling? (thats assuming it can be done without compromising the shape / weight of the putter) or do i just leave it as is and put it up for sale? whats a fair value for my putter in it's current condition?  

thanks in advance,
its one of the best feeling scotties i have ever used but unfortunately the shape does not agree with my eyes/stroke any more

From my experience initials/name stamps significantly decrease the value. A relatively mint one with the original grip/shaft/headcover could probably fetch you $1000 from what I've seen. Value decreases from there for custom shop work, stamping, aftermarket grip, shaft, etc. I bought a mint one (refinished at the custom shop) for $800 but it was missing the original grip and the headcover was beat up.

It is expensive to have the custom shop remove the names from the bumpers. At one time is was $50 per location plus the cost of the refinish $290 and shipping. So that's going to be $400+ just to remove the names.

Is it just me or are these over-valued, given today's current market??? Many on TCC seem to agree their worth about 650-850 but the sales on eBay are well north of 1k. You can get CT button backs for 2k like the T-10 model. Did Brooks K. winning at Erin Hills spike the demand?

I think it's quite a few different factors involved. Brooks K did for the buttonback what Spieth did for the 009, so yes you have seen a surge in value. Also, these putters are only 10 years old, and compared to some of Scotty's other cult classics (TEI3, mil-spec, AOP, studio stainless) many can still be found in mint original condition. And the kicker, to me, is that it combines the low maintenance of stainless steel with the best insert he's ever made. So if you have a Cameron in mint original condition, the TEI3 insert, and a 350+ gram head, you have the checklist most Cameron enthusiasts look for. Although this is less rare than some of his other limited releases at 4,000 produced, it is every bit as valuable as the 1 of 300 releases I own. The buttonback can be gamed by anyone unlike some of the wall hangers I own that were only made to 35/330 specs.

Agree with all that but the value has been pretty high even before BK. Didn't hurt that he was hot for a bit, but the BB has been one of Scottys most visible (and stable in value) for a long time

Height and head weight are totally personal preference. Don't get to locked into what the stock options are just go by feel
