Scotty Cameron is a marketing genius. The German Stainless Steel thing is ridiculous nonsense. So is the "For Tour Use Only" stamping. Childish, but people fall for it.
OTR SC putters are mass produced like any other. They are anything but exotic. Common as anything.
The collectible ones are quite different. Very nice. And expensive. Great finishes.
Sites like this promote myths about them because a lot of new golfers hear the name early on in their golfing life and believe the hype.
People talk about quality control and finish etc. which is nonsense. I have never seen a putter from any quality maker that has a poor finish.
If they were "the best" all players who were offered one for free or who could afford one would use one. They don't.
How many owners would bet $100,000 in a double blind test to identify the "feel" of their SC over other putters?
It's like exotic speaker cable. Emperor's new clothes.
Great putters. And there are lots of great putters out there.
I have owned several and didn't like any of them, but I only ever had OTR ones, which probably are overpriced. A 009 might be nicer.
