It just seems new putters don't actually "do" anything different. Just slap a high price tag on there because it's new and a "Scotty Cameron".
I'm not telling people what to do with their money. If you want one and have the money, go nuts. Buy 10 of them. Use a new one each round if you want. Just trying to say that it seems like new putters seem a tad overpriced as their technology doesn't seem to be advancing per se. Just my opinion though, so it's probably wrong.
But they aren't over priced. That fact that they are the same as a putter costing 1/3 as much isn't the point.
If they were overpriced, SC would go out business. Noone is foerced to buy one.
They set a price and people buy them.
I am not a fan, but I have owned and do own several expensive putters. Some don't feel that great ,including the SCs I have owned and unloaded. Others (particularly Odyssey Black Tour Designs) are incredible. But------an $80 Ping can feel fantastic too.
Your opinion is correct, but their popularity is about anything and everything except technology.
FWIW - if anyone has wanted to try a "fine milled" putter, but thinks they can't afford one, look at the deals on brand new Bettinardi putters on ebay at the moment. Prices are insane. And, I can highly recommend the seller, Proclubs. The BB1 craps all over any OTR Cameron in looks and finish. Feel....well, that depends on your stroke.
