Had a Scotty Cameron and UPGRADED to an Odyssey Metal X mallet.

18 posts in this topic

I have to say paying the 350 bones for a scotty cameron name brand putter that has weight displacement features and nice "black finish" is really nothing to get excited about. I just bought this beauty today and I have to say. Worth all of 150 on it

Nice new putter.  Do you like it so far?

What does scotty cameron have to do with it?

I'm amused at the people that shell out for a Scotty thinking it will solve their putting problems, then post all over the internet that Scotty's are overpriced and that there are significantly better options out there. Scotty's are beautiful, well-made putters, but they aren't forged with magic dust that makes the ball go in the hole just by looking at it. I could probably out-putt most people I play with using a mini-golf putter, but my Scotty is a bit more solid.

You just got it yesterday. I'm curious, how do you know already that it was "an upgrade" and worth what you paid for it? Seems to me that the only way to determine either of those two criteria is to see if it reduces your number of putts over an extended length of time. Congratulations on a your purchase. I hope it does improve your scoring!

Odyssey makes good putters; I've used the same Odyssey since 2005 or so.  I've never owned a Cameron, because I can't see the point in spending over $300 for an off-the-shelf putter.  People love their Scottys though--seems to be the most popular putter out there, so they must be doing something right.

I also am a fan of the D.A.R.T. alignment aid.

I'm shocked the Metal X 1 is not on tour. The Best putter I've ever used.

I just personally feel like right after getting this bad boy out of the package it started doing things the scotty couldnt. dont get me wrong the scotty cameron newport select I had worked great but was too much "club" for the high handicapper that I am. iF that makes sense. the ball comes off of the face way too fast for me. I felt as if there wasnt much control in the feel of the club. Plus the weight distrabution wasnt to my liking either. with the Metal X the weights can actually be changed out. from 350 g, 360 g and 370g. Scotty has this ability too but the weight differential is a little too drastic. I respect everyones opinions and golf is like politics you cant really change someones opinion on what works best for them. just make suggestions on what works for you and apply those to your game and see if it works. The odyssey putter ive played with four times now and my putting in those four rounds has dramatically gotten better believe it or not. being able to change the weight on the club works especially well if playing course based on the speed of the greens. I will stand by what I said before though the Scotty Cameron is just too expensive for the putter and the odyssey does a better job for me and I was able to get more for half the price. not to mention when i returned the scotty I got store credit at Rodger Dunn and got the putter, three dozen titelist balls and a new pair of addidas powerband shoes. BOSS

I have to agree that every putter is different and what ever helps that is what you use. I had a SC and loved it but once I went to a mallet my putting was much better. This is the second mallet I have had the first was a Rossa but was stolen so I just picked the same one you got Odyssey Metal X Dart.

But I have to say my friend has some no name old putter and is amazing with it.

To me a putter is special and has to produce no matter the name or the cost.

What works for you is what is best and that goes for ALL clubs. I switched to Rossi 2 a long time ago. I recently retired it for a Yes Eleanor. As for the expensive putters, I guess if paying a lot for a putter makes you somehow putt better, then fine.

I tried out the putter above and couldn't get past the alignment system. Thought it was ugly and distracting but that is just me.

And as far as TM goes, they don't cost any more than anything else, so what's the deal?

this is true, yet it must be the same towards irons, drivers, wedges... so why does everyone including 20+ handicappers to get rocketballz, or titleist 712, or taylormade MB....? you can't hide from the fact that everyone wants name brand because they have the most PROFESSIONALS using them..

People shell out 300 bucks on a driver they use maybe 10 times a round but complain about a 300 dollar putter that on a great day they use 28 times.

Just saying

Nope used a scotty newport 2, was a nice putter but just hit more putts with this, ugly or not your right what ever works for you. To me the money for equipment is not the issue, it will last and is an investment. But you can buy the top of the line most highend and not hit the ball to save your life oh well.

If it is all about the name brand you have and not the game bummer.

      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.
