Scotty Cameron, which one?

I'm thinking about buying Scotty Cameron and have few questions.

1. Is there going to be a new 2013 model coming out this year?

2. I'm a straight back and straight through putting player, which Scotty Cameron is the best for that style.

It is whatever looks and feels good to you. But you could take a look at the California Monterey, it is a traditional blade and is a great putter.

i did some research and found out that scotty doesn't believe in straight back straight forward putting style. i guess he only believes in arc... 

And i just realized that my current putter is not even a straight back straight through putter either.

My old 2ball putter is so i'm thinking i'll try that one for awhile and then try the arc technique and see which one will work best for me.

The GoLo S and the GoLo5 S (straight, center shaft) are perfect for a straight back and through swing. I have a back and through swing myself, and I just bought a GoLo S and it's the best putter I've ever picked up. So far, from the first time I played with it, I have putted better than I have in years, if ever. The GoLo S & 5 S are mallet type putters, and Scotty also makes a blade type with a straight shaft that would be a good back and through putter. Cathi from Titleist mentioned it in another discussion, so you could look through past posts and find it.

A couple of Cameron putters which may work for you would be the GoLo models, the California Fastback, or the Newport Notchback. These have less toe hang, and are for those players without large arcing putter paths. Check out the Scotty Cameron tab on the Titleist website, or even the Scotty Cameron site for much more information.

First, style: What to you prefer the players look of the Newport, the art or a California, or the size of a mallet.

Second, feel: do you like the firmer feel of the older mill style or the soft, new deep milling.

Third, Weight:  Do you like the heavier weight of a mallet or Golo, or the lighter weight of a Newport of California.

Fourth, Length: What length suits you best.

Fifth, Grip: What grip feels best in your hands.


 

I use a Golo and switched from a Newport for more weight, I also have the 15g in it and may switch to 20 or 25's.  Play around with many different types of putters, I strongly believe that by far it is the most important club in the bag that will usually be used on every hole and can be the difference between 80's and breaking par.

I really hoped this helped, I love the game and helping others and hope I helped you pick the right club.  I'd love to know what you got so please let me know, thanks!

The Newport 2 works for me and I'm a straight back, straight through putter like you.

All in feel man.  Go hit a few different ones and decide what you like best.  No one can tell you what will be more comfortable for your swing. 

Good advice Dan. I had always had this thing about "why pay so much money for a putter" until (like you said) someone said the putter is the only club that you use on ever hole, and is your scoring club, so why not play the best putter you can buy (and I believe a SC is the best). When I heard that, the preverbable light bulb came on in my head, and it dawned on me that we think nothing about paying a ton of money for the "Big Dog" and then want to skimp dollars on the most important club in our bag. That's when I bought my GoLo S and it's the best putter I've ever had, not to mention the best investment I've ever made.

Anything with a center shaft will probably help with the sbst stroke.  But its also got to fit your eye.  Scotty Cameron anything completely face balanced since the Squareback I believe.  Just test some out and see what looks and feels great to you.

You just convinced me to pull the trigger. I was thinking 349 is too steep which it really is but it's the most important club in the bag. I have a Scotty Cameron American Classic III. I Madeira putts last year than I've ever made but this year it doesn't feel the same. So guess ill pony up n

the Newport 2.6 is amazing to me,....great feel and weight

Oh my gosh, i went to a local store to just try different scotty camerons and they had a used GoLo S Mid 40 inches (Yes 40 inches... i guess either it was custom ordered (is it possible to order at 40 inches?) or it was cut down at the store (the guy at the store wouldn't give me a straight answer)) and i used it like a normal putter and the putter felt amazing. btw, i'm 6'4" so using 40 inch as a belly putter would be very difficult. i've never felt this stable, comfortable and consistent with any type of putters before. i didn't pick that one up since i didn't like their used price and still wasn't sure why it was 40 inches.

what do you all think about using a short belly putter as a normal putter?

Would there be a way to get a GoLo S mid 40 inches or should i just get the 41 inches?

Or is it possible to get the regular GoLo S 39 inches or 40 inches?

Any thoughts?

 

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about what type of stroke you have and more about how you feel with each putter. I am unfortunately very picky and go between clubs/putters like its no man's business: I have tried about every Scotty Cameron putter, recently tried the Golo S, then the Golo 5s and am now back to the regular Newport.... which I absolutely love and always go back to. 

It would be ideal to try all the putters out on the course, especially since the price on those baby's exceeds most car payments. I would highly recommend looking for demo day's only because a lot of shops are doing them this time of year. I see so many guys get equipment without trying it on the course they indubitably regret it. 

Try and test out the putter before you buy, especially if you're looking at a Scotty Cameron:) Just my two bits,

There are a number of people using a non anchored long putter for a counter balanced feel. Also some use a non anchored belly putter with the shaft along their lead forearm. Both are legal even if the anchored putter ban takes effect.
