The people who deem them "worth" their money seem to almost always seem to say "they're worth it to me, and I love mine." The people who, like yourself, don't seem to believe they're worth it almost always seem to say "they're not worth it, you shouldn't waste your money."
The difference being there's the hint with the latter that you're being TOLD you're stupid for spending the money, and with the former, people treat it more as their personal opinion. Virtually nobody who says "they're not worth it" says "They're not worth it for me, but I'm sure other people see value in it, and that's fine." It almost always seems to come off as "you're all wasting your money. I can get model XYZ for $119!"
Just a general feeling about the tone, which is admittedly difficult to read online, but as someone who doesn't really care what anyone thinks about MY equipment, I don't believe I've "read into" something that's not there. Maybe, though.
If you aren't sure what I mean by the above, I'm not sure how to put it another way.
P.S. For example, this seems very much to be "pushing value judgments on others." He specifically says "your head," not "my head," and he doesn't say "I agree, no way is a putter worth $300 to me
." You might argue that such is implied, but I'm not a big fan of assuming or implying, particularly when it's contradicted by "your head" immediately afterwards.
