If you just bought this... why is it still for sale? Do you mean just put an offer in on this?

But that is a beauty! Butch is a big big fan of the Bullseye!

Tiger has a Cameron Tour Bullseye now SC made with a becu insert in it he uses to practice with...

This is true... back when Tiger was using a TeI putter Butch had two Bullseyes made with the BeCu insert for Tiger to practice with... I don't think he still uses it though! Pic below... the ultimate Bullseye IMO!  :)

Thanks mate... that is the Classic III, Scotty's take on the Bullseye prior to signing with Titleist. There was only 150 of these made... I have 2, one is mint and the one shown has been refinished but gamed a couple of times... actually had it for sale on Ebay just recently as decided I only needed one, but had no bids!  :)

The putter in my avatar is my backup Bullseye, I have another in my bag that is exactly the same minus the bullseye logo on the back.  I have always loved bullseyes, except that the old Rueter designs were mostly too light.  I found this current putter at a proshop one day lightly used, and just like the look.  I have found that it helps my short putting tremendously, with my old anser putter that I used for 15 years I was always a great lag putter but poor short range putter.  Now I am the best putter I know making 4 and 5 footers.  I really like the alignment and the feel of hitting one pure, much like people who play blades.  Also the weight of this putter is great, very heavy, keeps my storke smooth.  

I just personally think that having a simple non offset blade with no gimicks is so much easier to line up than a 3-ball or Spyder or whatever is trendy.  I also think that needing a putter with a high MOI is laughable, I mean if you can't hit a putter on the sweetspot you have serious issues, IMO.

As you can see my gamer is getting a little beat up, might be getting close to send it back for a re-finish, but the sweet spot is still in good shape, so I am in no hurry.  I kind of like making putts with a old beat up looking blade, while everyone else is missing with $300 works of art and high tech contraptions.

I'm on a big Bullseye kick right now.  I've had an old brass Acushnet Offset Flange in my closet for years, and not too long ago I pulled it out just for fun.  I was quite impressed with how easy it was to line up, how smooth it stroked (very smooth for a relatively light head compared to modern putters), and how soft it felt.  In fact, that 20-year-old putter felt so good and gave me so much confidence that it knocked my C&L out of the bag.

Never content enough to stop putter shopping, I added a 2002 Scotty Cameron 33/350 Platinum Heavy Flange Bullseye to my collection, and I think it's going to be my gamer once I lengthen it a couple of inches.  It's even softer than the brass Bullseye, and the extra weight and alignment dot help me get the ball on line better.  It has pretty much the same general look as the brass Bullseye, and it helps stave off the comments from playing partners--and all us Bullseye players have heard them--to get a real putter and return the Bullseye to the mini-golf course.  

I think one of the main virtues of the Bullseye is that it's pretty much center-shafted, but it also has toe flow.  With the sweetspot just a hair inside of the shaft, you get what I've always considered to be the main benefit of a center shaft: more control.  But for those of us who don't have a S-B-S-T stroke, the Bullseyes still have about 5 o'clock toe hang for the flanged, offset models (the standard blades hang straight down, and provide even more toe flow), and that helps the putter release through the ball.

I own about 15 putters. 14 of them are late model (last 2 or 3 years) high cost, high tech, names you would recognize that claim to be state of the art engineered, designed, and manufactured. Believe me, if I listed them you would recognize every single one.  Hand made, inserts, exotic materials, moi, weights, balanced, special shafts & grips and on and on - you get the picture.

But I putt the best with a 15 year old, no tech, no name bullseye putter that looks like it was stolen from the local miniature golf course. This thing couldn't have cost more than $10 when it was new 15 or 20 years ago. Truly no tech - not even an alignment line.

Anyone else using a bullseye as your go-to putter? What are you using? Have you tried the new (non-bullseye) stuff?
Yessir - I have played for nigh on 50 years - started as a kid of 14, and I still have my first putter - a Bull's Eye. Over the years I have tried many putters, but alway went back to my trusted BE, and since I developed a "soft spot" for those beautiful putters, I am the extremely proud owner of "about" 17 of them.

On slow greens the best version is with the flange - but my home course sports something like concrete greens during most of the season, and the BE gives me superior control.

I picked one up the other day and messed around with it.  Standing over it, I couldn't help thinking about a SeeMore.  If your aim is correct with this, the shaft will hide the heel just as a SeeMore shaft hides the red dot in their alignment system.

I only have 8 putters. �� The bullseye I game is the brass one with a circle sc. Evidently Scotty Cameron in addition to the silver bullseye line also did a take on a the classic brass bullseye. Mine also says Reuter Design. Another reason I think the putter is popular is the crimped flexible shaft. It contributes to the feel that the bullseye is reknown for
