Has anyone ever tried taking out the dampening material behind the face insert on a Scotty Studio Select?   I know i'm in the minority here but I prefer a higher pitch sound and was wondering if the dampening material could be removed if I took off the face insert.
Maybe it won't make a difference at all?

Thanks!

Give it a try!
I'd be curious to know if it made any difference as well because I just don't care for the feel (or lack of) coming off the face of these new Scotty's with the inserts.

Every time. I prefer it. Gives it a feel closer to the deep milled. I don't care for SC inserts at all.

It'd be interesting if someone did this and reported back
I wonder how much that tape actually does?  Like TMAC, I'm definitely more a fan of the non insert stuff

I’m going to have to be that jerk that states the obvious.

Save yourself the time and trouble and simply  buy yourself a similar previous generation with a solid face.

No hassle involved and you won’t destroy the resale value for the majority of people that like the softer feel of the insert.

Yeah as above and why would you alter a putter that one of the best putter makers in the business has spent $$$$$ on R&D, testing, etc? Sounds like a downgrade to me and may have adverse affects.

I doubt you'd notice a thing.

.......So go to your local hardware store, buy some 3M double-sided tape, and put it back in there if you don 't like the feel without it.
Easy-peasy.  ;)

If you called it 'tape' you could only charge $275.   Vibration dampening material costs much more for R&D and production :)
