Re: Why are putters so expensive

A $29.99 putter and a quality milled putter will have a night and day difference in feel and performance.
However, I'd urge you to take a look at getting a custom putter done from someone like David Mills, John Byron, or Tom Slighter. Each of those gentlemen produce putters which are comparable in price to an off the rack Cameron, but are designed to your exact specifications and wishes in terms of finish, visuals, and performance. Top quality workmanship for an extreme value.
