2016 Scotty Cameron Select putters

Published

on

The Scotty Cameron name garners passionate and widespread attention in the putter market, so when Scotty Cameron releases a new putter, golfers take notice.

And Scotty says his new Select putters look, sound and feel better than ever before. That’s due to a new multi-material construction and face inlays, which look like a face insert but wrap down below the leading edge into the sole.

“We’ve extended the methodology of our proven multi-
material technology to include new stainless steel inlays for blades, as well as aluminum inlays for the mid-mallet models,” Cameron says. “The result is a better look, a better sound, a better feel and a better product.”

The line, which consists of seven different putters, utilizes three different constructions.

Newport_2_STD_Hero

The Select Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 putters use a 303 stainless steel face inlay that’s mid-milled, hand-buffed and bonded to a stainless steel body. It also has vibration-dampening material to reduce vibrations for a softer, more responsive feel.

The Select Newport 2 Notchback has a 6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum face inlay anodized in gunmetal gray. The lightweight face is bonded to a heavier stainless steel body, leading to perimeter weighting that boosts moment of inertia (MOI), a measure of forgiveness.

Cameron_Select_2016

The Select Newport M1 and M2 mid-mallet style putter also use a 6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum face inlay, but the material goes down into the sole and pops up through the back cavity to create the sight line.

The body of the putter is made from Stainless Steel, providing perimeter weighting and higher MOI. According to Titleist, the putter is made to stabilize straight-back and straight-through strokes.

Also, each of the putters has two interchangeable stainless steel weights in the heel and toe, a glare resistant finish and comes with a red matador grip.

Read more about each of the new Scotty Cameron Select putters below, which will be available on April 8. All putters will sell at retail for $410, except the dual-balance putter will sell for $425.

    So many tour guys use leading edge toplines or sight dot yet all SC’s retail putters come with flange lines that many putting experts have proven are the hardest to line up. Would be nice to have Speith option as retail.

    People Please, can everyone stop flooding these discussion boards complaining about the price of a club, the product cycles of TaylorMade, or how every putter is a copy of the PING anser. We’ve heard this all before a million times. I guess complainers are all up in arms about price because either you can’t afford to buy it, but you want to, or you don’t think its worth the price. If you don’t think its worth it, then don’t buy the club. If you can’t afford it, sorry, but stop posting complaints about price. If you want a cheaper club, go troll eBay, not golfwrx.

        I care about what people think, just not about the price of a club. Scotty Cameron putters are expensive, in other news, the sky is blue….nothing new here. Bring something tangible to the table Bert. Like why Scotty’s have had the same satin finish for 3+ years running, or why they have gone away from deep milling, or even why they don’t really have any “new” head designs. Those are things that people should care about, not that the price went up $20!

    So, just an updated Studio Style line w/ adjustable weights? I prefer the cleaner scotty looks… like the original studio select line. And I think by stamping the bumper you are taking away from people who want to send it off to the custom shop. 410 is getting a little too steep as well. They are pretty though.

    Spent $130 for a odyssey white hot pro #9 when they first came out. Done.

  9. lsf_21

    Jan 26, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    These look great. 410 is ridiculous. I placed an order for a Black Lab with custom stampings for 300. These are great if your name is Scott Cameron.

    Umpteenth repackage of the same thing. They look nice, they will sell.

    I wish I could be around in 75+ years to see if the Cameron putters are considered classics.

    I seem to remember many people saying that golf is 50% physical & 75% mental. If you can afford a Scotty and it makes you feel good when you take it out to putt, hopefully the good vibes will turn into more putts made.
    Being in Canada where the exchange rate has climbed to stupid levels due to a global glut of oil, we recently saw most Studio Newports go from $399 to $499. Now with this new release, a Scotty will set me back almost what a PXG driver would. Good thing I have my 3 year old GOLO.

    Finally a Newport with a sight line!!!!!!

  14. KK

    The fit and finish of Scotties demolishes every other putter brand and oh, they win a ton of tournaments. It’s like everything else in life: You want the best or you want just okay?

  15. Brandon

    Jan 26, 2016 at 6:21 pm

    For me, it is right to compare putter and car as they both gone thru some sort of studies and R&D… We are charged for the works they done and time they spent before launching it.

    BTW, TaylorMade M stands for multi materials and Scotty Cameron M stands for Mallet…

    • Cliff

      Jan 27, 2016 at 8:19 am

      Can I get a moon roof, power windows, heated seats, climate control on my scotty!

      Maybe if it came with a heated grip it may be worth the $410. There is nothing new here!

  16. Eric

    Jan 26, 2016 at 4:09 pm

    When you buy a Scotty Cameron really all your are buying is the name plated on the putter. You can’t blame Scotty for the price point because people are dumb enough to buy them, but look at what your buying. He took the old Ping Anser design and used some different materials to build it with. Before 1992 nobody had ever heard of this guy. If you want a Scotty Cameron go buy a Ping Anser, an Odyssey, or anything else thats been made the last 25+ years. They’re all the same except for different badges.

  17. Cliff

    Jan 26, 2016 at 3:16 pm

    I don’t get the SC obsession. The putter has to be the easiest club to make. A grip and shaft run about $25 for the average Joe. Don’t see how there is $300-$375 worth of material and work involved at this point anymore.

    • Josh

      Jan 26, 2016 at 3:41 pm

      Then don’t buy it, make your voice heard with your wallet.

      And also, if you don’t get the “SC obsession”, stop reading articles about Scotty Cameron putters. Choose to do the things that make you happy!

    • Ml

      Jan 26, 2016 at 3:53 pm

      It’s like a car. It doesn’t cost them 30,000 to make it but they will sell it to your for that.

      • Cliff

        Jan 26, 2016 at 4:07 pm

        We are comparing a car to a putter….genius!

  18. Keith

    Jan 26, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    Well they look pretty nice, I doubt lefties get anything more then one option here though I’m gonna go on a limb and say we get the Newport 2… Just like every other time

  19. MRC

    Jan 26, 2016 at 2:33 pm

    Interesting that TM and SC used the same code for their “New” designs…. M2.

  20. nick

    Jan 26, 2016 at 2:03 pm

    yeah not sure about the scotty cameron stamps on the back… the putters as always though, look great imo. now we’re at $410 retail for the standard line? this guy is really maximizing his opportunities. can i blame him? not really… i think the other manufactures need to step their game up a bit. scotty’s putters are in a class of their own and although i think theyre overpriced, he has every right to charge what he wants. no competition. TM can easily re-introduce the itsy bitsy spider… but they released the monstrosity version and it looks like a toy. no demand for that set-up. Day wins huge with this thing and its a discontinued product? why not bring it back? create some buzz and or improve on something that people want.

  21. Don

    Jan 26, 2016 at 10:46 am

    I wish I could actually afford one of these. But since I am cheap enough that I won’t fork over more than $300 for a driver none of these are in my future. Too expensive.

    • Chris

      Jan 26, 2016 at 12:06 pm

      For something you use anywhere from 25-40 times per round, depending on putting skill of course, it makes more sense to spend it on a putter you really like the feel of as opposed to a driver you will hit 14 times a round. I used to quantify the price based on how far the club was going rather than how much use it will get without even realizing it. Once I thought of it in terms of how many times I would use it per round, it became a much easier bullet to bite into.

      • alexdub

        Jan 26, 2016 at 12:33 pm

        To continue your line of reasoning… Since I use a golf ball more than twice the amount of times I use a putter per round, should I spend $400 on a golf ball? The cost of a putter is mostly unrelated to the benefit it provides. People buy Scottys (or other high-end putters) because they feel special when they pull them out of the bag. And, if someone’s golf game is influenced by how special they feel when pulling something out of the bag, I’m not sure how much equipment will help anyway.

        • djdrb

          Mar 7, 2016 at 9:45 am

          Yes. I use $600 tees made of solid gold to complement my $400 golf balls.

      • Fahgdat

        Jan 26, 2016 at 1:37 pm

        It doesn’t matter how many times you hit it if it doesn’t go where you want it. Spend what you have to, in order to get the right gear. Price makes no difference if it doesn’t perform, but humans are stupid in thinking that price makes a difference when it comes to golf equipment

  22. Tom

    Jan 26, 2016 at 10:36 am

    Interesting. Aircraft aluminum face insert reminds me of the old style Grace designs. That M2 is intriguing to me.

  23. Anthony

    Jan 26, 2016 at 10:22 am

    I like the Newport’s from the last two years a lot more. The Newport came with no alignment lines and made it much easier to get exactly what you wanted in a putter because you could send it to the custom shop and get exactly what you wanted.

  24. BaBaBoey

    Jan 26, 2016 at 10:18 am

    I wonder what grade stainless the heads are made out of now and if they’re cast, forged, or milled…

    • Josh

      Jan 26, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      LOL a cast Scotty. Now that’s funny. BTW the bodies are (milled) 303 SS. http://www.scottycameron.com/videos-photos/?id=66

      • BaBaBoey

        Jan 27, 2016 at 9:05 pm

        Scotty never said the body was milled. He did say it was 303 but all he said was milled face and scotchbrite sole.

    • CdnColin

      Feb 23, 2016 at 6:26 pm

      New here and recently retired. In my previous life I was the Stainless/Aluminum Product Mgr. for a major distributer. Basically all aluminum is military grade. This is an additional specification that all mills will certify their product to for no wxtra charge. Have to giggle when I see producers use it for marketing purposes. 6061 is the most common alloy, like vanilla ice cream.

    He just couldn’t leave his name off the bumpers. And $410?!? Gross.

2020 GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide: Golf gifts for the Value Seeker

Published

on

It’s that time of year again, GolfWRX members, the moment we start filling our wish lists with the golf gear we want this holiday season.

The GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide was created to ensure that our readers give (and hopefully receive) the very best golf gifts on the planet. These gift ideas will suit any budget, and each item was hand-picked by our staff.

In an effort to provide more value and tailored recommendations, we’re presenting our guide as a series this year, targeting “the purist,” “the gearhead,” “the value seeker,” “the golfer looking to improve,” “the clothes horse,” and “the big spender.” (Editor’s note: remaining installments to publish tomorrow and Wednesday)

You know the value seeker by his/her eschewing of anything that will put a significant dent into the wallet while still getting the most from their game, this includes equipment, practice tools, or anything else you might find filling out a golf bag – maybe even the golf bag itself.

Here are our best recommendations for “the value seeker” in your life.

Tour Edge Hot Launch series clubs

Tour Edge and its Hot Launch line of clubs are one of the undisputed leaders when it comes to offering game improvement technology and value to golfers of all skill levels. The newest Hot Launch 521 Series, which includes the Hot Launch E521 and Hot Launch C521 line, can be broken up into two categories to help players quickly identify which clubs they should most consider, and it goes from drivers all the way down to wedges.

The Hot Launch E Series offers high-MOI, extreme game improvement designs with a singular focus on delivering easy-to-launch performance, which is built around correcting the most common miss in golf: the dreaded slice.

The Hot Launch C Series is designed for golfers who desire classicly shaped clubs that offer optimal launch and spin rates, while still getting all the benefits of easy to hit, forgiving clubs built around maximizing MOI.

GolfWRX Classifieds (11/23/20): Tour issue TaylorMade M5, Ping G410 LST, Jones Trooper bag

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member mykdel – Jones Utility Trooper bag

Jones makes some of the nicest carry bags on the market for walkers and this Utility Trooper is in amazing shape and for a crazy good price – best to act fast on this one.

Member mupepperbuy – Ping G410 LST driver

The only thing nicer than the G410 LST driver are these pictures of said driver for sale. Even with the G410, the G400 LST continues to be popular with golfers of all skill levels thanks to its low spin performance and stability.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Ping G400 LST

Member Snipzky9 – TaylorMade Tour Issue M5 driver head

Unlike the modern SIM, the TaylorMade M5 was never released to the public in an 8° head – only as a tour issue item, which makes this head particularly rare.
