The objective part is type of material, making process etc., but who's to say one metal is better for putting than the other? Or that one type of making is better than the other? It all comes down to how you play the club and how it feels to you. Weight balancing, shaft, clubhead design, type of metal etc. are all things that will be different, but only to the individual. Some like the feel and sound of a putter that goes *bonk*, or they don't want to spend money on something else.
The only way to rank putters is by sales numbers, but since they market their products so differently, that statistic won't tell you much either. It will tell you which putter sells best, but that doesn't mean anything to the individual. You can look at statistics on clubs the pros use, but what makes the most used clubs on the PGA Tour the ones best suited for you?
This whole discussion is useless. If you want to, you can find Nike, Odyssey and Bettinardi putters for $300 too, but SC is more fun to bash.
