Anyone Uses a Scotty Cameron Teryllium Newport?

18 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about getting one used after I try one out. Just want to get an idea on how it feels, and whether or not you like it. It'd be my first SC putter, and I've had my eye on this putter for 10 years. It's only now that I can afford a good putter... :p

Don't have that exact model, but I just plunged down the money for a Scotty a few days ago and it arrived today.

It's WELL worth the money. The feel, balance, looks...everything...just flat out amazing. You won't be disappointed in a Cameron.

Go try it out first if you can.

Don't flat out buy a Cameron just because...I tried a few SCs the other day and had some I really preferred over others.

I have the Newport II, trust me its worth it!

http://thesandtrap.com/forum/showthr...t=16271&page;=5 post #43 for my pics the key is to find a well used model on ebay and have it refinished outside of the cameron studio, there are several craftsmen who I have come to know who's work is on par or even better than camerons when it comes to custom finish applications and plating

I wish

I would say ask around on CameronCollectors but they would probably shoot you for actually using a putter to putt.

The putter was released in 1996-1997... you'd have to find a friend to get your hands on these

you will most likely never find this putter in a used bin

I'm thinking of getting one on ebay, but they're all quite pricey. Too bad that this is valued for collectors and not just gamers... But it's soooo pretty!!!

I have the German stainless steel newport 2 and love it. I paid $150 plus shipping about 2 years ago on ebay. The only comment I can make about the Teryllium is does it need to be oiled regularly because of the material?

I have one and love it. However, don't buy one unless you regularly putt on quick greens. It's tough to get them to the hole with this putter on slow greens.

Fletch... do you game your teryllium ten? that's one sweet putter

I picked up my TEI3 on the bay for 200 then sank 100 in a for a custom refinish (not scotty as he offers only a limited number of finishes)

I love this stick...

I have a teryllium long neck newport. I like it a lot but like someone else has said - it's not the best on slow greens. I play on some slower greens (some with very large greens) and I really have to take a big stroke on some of the longer lag putts which can lead to some ugly strokes.

Like has been said before, don't get one for the sake of getting one. But, if you know you get on well with classic, Anser-type putters, you can't go wrong.

In my opinion they're not the softest feel-wise (say, to an Odyssey Black Series), but they give you the most 'responsive' feel.

I've had mine for about 10 years now and I haven't had anything else in the bag for that time.

You can get them on EBay, but make sure it's in good condition. Yes, these things rust, but, there's absolutely no excuse for excessive rusting all over the head to warrant re-finishing. Like I said, ten years of use pretty much every day and there's rusting only on the sole of mine. The head is like the day I got it cos I made sure to oil it after every round.

They're perfectly balanced, feel solid and instill confidence knowing you've got a Scotty in your hands. And, this model is a beauty to boot.

I didn't really want to deal with applying silicone to the putter after every round and decided on a copper torch finish

the finish accomplished two things, one - eliminated care qualities and is pretty much maintenance free, two - added 8 grams to the headweight which makes the putter more versatile on slower greens (which tend to be common on midgrade public courses)

Sure do, thanks amigo. I had to re-grip it (faux leather grip was garbage) but other than that, absolutely no complaints

My sister and I joined forces and bought Dad one for his birthday ten years ago.

It was a terryllium inserted Santa Fe model. It is one sweet feeling putter. He'll take in and out of his bag at times.

You've really got to keep 'em wiped down well and coated with baby oil after every use....can be sort of a pain.

Sweet sticks indeed, though.


I've wanted one ever since but haven't had the $$$.

I traded some old clubs for my first Cameron this week. I've got several bids in on others and I'm eagerly awaiting the release of the new Studio Select Squareback model.

They get addictive. I don't anticipate ever trading or selling them off.....as having them around to choose from is a neat option that appeals to me. Game one for a few rounds and then see how it goes. Switching up putters keeps my focus more sharp when putting.


Good luck on your hunt for a terryllium model.

I have owned one and used it for every round |I have played since I was 17, 15 years ago!

Never thought of changing.

Great balance, looks and a super soft feel.

Enjoy

I have two Scotty putters, and while I like them, neither of them come close to being as perfect as my Seemore Si-4. Perfect for me that is, I realize im just one person.

I do believe Scotty's to be overpriced, and their usefulness to be greatly over-exaggerated though. Great putters, but the myth is better than the reality.

My next putter will be a fitted Edel. My brother uses one of my Scotty's, so I guess I have one, since I would never ask for it back, and he likes it a lot. I just haven't officially given it to him yet. I like to make him sweat, so I mention once in a while that I may start using it again. I won't, but I like the way his eyes droop when I mention it, hehhehe.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?
    • Share a Fact from Your Job
      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

      thanks. I'm doing that so I might do some horse trading.
    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
