Yogi, why are you acting as if you're personally offended that some people like to use a Scotty Cameron? I have my own reasons for playing them. Part of it is the artistic stuff, the craftsmanship, etc.
I don't buy a new putter every few days or even weeks or months. And I can't stand most of the insert putters. I can put just fine with just about anything, but I like to LOOK at a Scotty Cameron putter more than just about anything else.
So who are you to decide for me - or seemingly get offended - at what putter I choose to play?
FWIW (to all), the easy answer to this question, and in fact the ONLY answer to the question "Are Scotty Cameron Putters worth the price?" is "That's up to the guy who's looking to buy a putter."
That's it. It's awfully rude to tell someone else whether you think it's worth THEIR money. It's one thing to believe (and say) that you don't think it's worth it for you, but don't put your value judgments on others.
Threads like this are pretty pointless in light of that. If it's worth it to you, buy it. If it's not, don't. Does it matter if anyone else agrees with your decision? Not a bit.
