In particular, the putters with the darker finish, and contrasting silver inserts really have my attention. It looks like the inserts were milled seperately from the face which adds even more contrast. LOVE IT!!!

So, all critical comments of any type are considered hateful?

I'll just say that for me, I prefer the Cameron putters of the mid to late 90's( especially 1998). These just have "too much" going on for me. But, obviously the marketplace feels differently and these will sell like hotcakes.

Really much prefer some of the older Cameron's, but I do like the 009s posted here, as well as the above mentioned group shot and the weld-neck 1.5 style super rat. If had my choice out of this group of putters posted, personal favorite would be the DBAP.

I think these are awesome.  Some are a little ridiculous, (like that swervey neck think w/ the bubble type patter) but most are great.  I love those twisty necks.  I also think people should a be a little less jealous of the people who buy them.  I'll never have that kind of money to spend on a putter but that doesn't mean I'm going to disparage those who can.  Just the fact that the complainers are on WRX leads me to believe if they had the opportunity to buy one they would.  I know if I was rich enough, I'd be first in line.  Those are awesome putters.  My only concern would be some of them are almost too nice to play w/.  I would hate to get a rock chip on one of those $16k putters.  Anyway, beautiful work Scotty!  I don't much like a lot of your putters which are quite overrated but some are great and these are the cream of the crop.  I like that people are spending money on these and not stupid watches or something.  It's much better to spend it on golf.  It creates interest.  Just like I'm not mad at the guy in my town who has a Bentley, 2 Ferraris and Lamborghini and a BMW, it encourages passionate, cool cars to continue production, just like this encourages Cameron to make awesome putters.  I like it.

The two tone super rat 1.5 is awesome, I have an old studio style because I like the "insert" look.  Making it a contrasting color looks great.  I also wish some of those mallets were retail.

You shouldn't. These NEVER decrease in value. These putters are a great investment. Most are worth $1,000 more on eBay as soon as you buy them. Plus, if you have money for a $14,000 putter, you're rich. Don't feel sorry for them.

I think a better statement would be "they haven't decreased in value YET".

Sure they're cool, but I don't see the long term value in them as far as investments go, in fact I see the opposite, I see the bottom falling out of this market eventually and a lot of people who "invested" $14,000 in a putter are going to be holding the bag.

I don't see that happening. Unlike Beanie Babies, putters have actual usefulness. You can take it out onto the golf course and use it, and some people would probably think (foolishly) that they putt better with an expensive putter. There is also a certain amount of bragging rights when you show up at your private country club with a $10k putter in your bag, it is like having a hot wife, only cheaper lol

As long as Cameron and Titleist remain the leaders in putter design the value of their putters will continue to increase. They are not similar to Beanie Babies, I would say they are more similar to vintage Rolex's.

Also, some old equipment becomes obsolete over time (old drivers, old balls, etc), but the anser-style putter has remained pretty much the same for many many years. We aren't going to see a sudden change in putter technology that'll make Scotty's putters obsolete.

Some of them aren't my cup of tea, but I respect that he goes out and tries to create extravagant pieces, those that push the envelope. Of course not everyone is gonna like it, heck some people are going to hate it for no reason, but I like the fact that he tries to make something completely different for those who might.

Scotty and TableRock must be laughing all the way to the bank.


I don't have this kind of money and would not buy ANY putter for 16k but to each his own I guess.

I would just like to know how long it takes Scotty to make one of these 16k pieces, apart from twisting a piece of metal a couple of times (Twisty), doing an average weld job and stamping his initials in the face it must be about 1h / putter max. Pretty decent hourly wage

I would love a Tour Rat and some of the 009 are pretty cool.  There is some neat stuff.

There have been some very cool putters in the past but those few this year that were in the 16k range were not my cup of tea (even if I could afford the price tag).

Don't use this forum to try and sway people's investment decisions or to proclaim how rich you are, it makes you sound pretty damn conceded..."I make this kind of 'piss-away' money".....good for you, "but I invest it much differently"....good for you...there are wayyy more people out there who could use the kind of "piss away money" you claim to have than there are claiming that a $10,000+ putter is a sound investment, but no one needs your opinion and by bringing up how wealthy you are (snidely at that) followed by "advice for us lesser off investors" on a golf equipment forum you're not only asking for but deserve to receive comments such as this...wake up jacka**

If I remember correctly, the folks at TableRock deal in lots of classic clubs, not just Cameron's. the Palmer designed by putter has been sought after by playa's for years.

I started a a caddy at Hazeltine in 1971, the year after they held the US Open for the first time. One of the assistants who was there told me a story about Lee Trevino before the Open. He paid one of the guys to go through the entire bag room. Every Palmer he found, he got the number of the member, called them, and offered to buy them any club in the shop for their putter. If I remember correctly, he ended up with 6 or 7 of them. Manufacturers now can make anything these guys want, but back then we really had to dig to find the perfect set of bats. :-)

I could be wrong.

I will be again.

a majority of these are made for just this show , hense the radical designs/colors/stamping
Scotty knows he can get outrageous amounts of money for them because they COLLECTOR pieces
most wont be gamed (the $10k and up ones I assume anyways)

Anywho...Some cool new putters there for all of the Cameron fans. Does anyone have any idea as to how the Wilson putter fits in?

If I remember correctly, the folks at TableRock deal in lots of classic clubs, not just Cameron's. the Palmer designed by putter has been sought after by playa's for years.

I started a a caddy at Hazeltine in 1971, the year after they held the US Open for the first time. One of the assistants who was there told me a story about Lee Trevino before the Open. He paid one of the guys to go through the entire bag room. Every Palmer he found, he got the number of the member, called them, and offered to buy them any club in the shop for their putter. If I remember correctly, he ended up with 6 or 7 of them. Manufacturers now can make anything these guys want, but back then we really had to dig to find the perfect set of bats. :-)

Wow, great story Kev! Those were the days huh. I had a Tommy Armour Ironmaster putter that I used long after it was an antique simply because I couldn't find anything to replace it. That's funny about Hazeltine, I grew up in MN and had a chance to play the course the week after the Open in 91. Greens were like putting on hardwood they were so fast.

I'll have to check Tablerock's website out and see if they have any old classics.

Thanks GolfWRX! I look forward to this thread every year. The habitual, canned, hateful posts can't even ruin this one for me. :-)

In particular, the putters with the darker finish, and contrasting silver inserts really have my attention. It looks like the inserts were milled seperately from the face which adds even more contrast. LOVE IT!!!

So, all critical comments of any type are considered hateful?


I was thinking the same thing. I didn't say they aren't nice, and I didnt say I wouldn't ever spend $3000 on a circle T to use it.

All I said is I can't see any long term value in them as an investment. It's weird how so many people jump on any critical comment and label you a "hater". The funny thing is I'm actually a Scotty Cameron fan and a small time collector.

Why in the world would you think I was talking about you? Nothing wrong with your opinions. Look at the other goofy posts in the thread that are bashing for the sake of bashing. That's what I was talking about. It's one thing to offer opinions, another to just make rude comments..,
