I remember trying out a Scotty Cameron putter years ago and it had the German Stainless Steel insert and it felt wonderfully soft. Is the GSS insert the softest insert had Scotty ever used and how does it compare to the insert's that he's using now?

Feel is so subjective, but I also think my BB is softer

Its stainless steel. Feeling comes from milling depth or lack there of. Proven time and time again the only difference in GSS is that it has slightly more copper in it thus making it easier to mill and the overpriced price tag of course.

Scotty and Bettinardi are laughing all the way to the bank at people buying GSS and DASS. It's actually no more expensive when buying it from the source than 303 but consumers pay 10x the price.

I actually thought it was one of his worst feeling putters haha. Feel is so subjective though.

His stainless inserts now have a piece of tape in between the insert and the body. They feel really soft. Not for me personally.

The Tei3/BB and the old carbon Camerons are his softest (IMO) offerings. IN his more current offerings I thought the Aluminum inserts were pretty soft as well.

If you want a soft feeling stainless Cameron look at the Studio Stainless line. Itís the only stainless retail line that had a solid one piece head, no inserts or sole weights, or nothing. Feel is great. His first stainless line was his best.

I am no metallurgist but it is pretty accepted that from soft to firm goes Copper, Carbon, and then Stainless Steel.  Aluminum is for boats and mobile homes not a putter. Lol

Again feel is subjective where type of ball, grip, milling, finish, length, sound, and  much more can influence the perception.

The Studio Style with GSS insert is one of the firmest feeling Scottys I own. It's pretty clicky, similar to the Mil Specs I own with the platinum finish. The buttonback I have is definitely softer so I assume the TEI3 insert is softer than the GSS.

It's pretty funny how subjective the feel thing is
I love that putter, and think it's one of Scotty's best, especially considering the current and recent lines
However, soft is not how I'd describe this particular head
To me, this putter feels very solid, very responsive, but definitely not soft

I have both a GSS Insert and the TEI3 scotties, and I agree the TeI3 feels softer. the GSS is clicky.

I agree the Tei3 is almost too soft and my circa carbon is still the best feeling to me. Also my golo with aluminum insert feels pretty good as well, as i game it the most
