Scotty Cameron and Aftermarket Weights - Page 2

post #19 of 26

I have to chuckle a little at this.  Unless things have changed drastically, Scotty Cameron putter heads are made by third party suppliers. There are multiple processes involved and go back and forth between Titleist/Acushnet  and the vendors before they are finally assembled at the Titleist plant. This I know, as I was the one at the time who maintained a tracking database of exactly where the components were at any given time.  I had a heck of a time getting their accounting records to agree with mine. What they reported to me that they "had" often did not add up to what my database indicated. Inventory control was a joke.  Now, this in no way diminishes the care Scotty puts into the design and they are a quality product. Hopefully they have "fixed" that glitch in the system and are holding the vendors to a higher degree of responsibility.

SC sells after market weights on their site as well, so there's no need to send your putter to the Custom Shop. 

 

The SC weights, like everything else from SC are sold at a premium price over the other option and don't come in all the colors and designs the others do, but if you're concerned about damaging your putter they would be your best bet, short of sending your putter for a spa treatment. 

 

I have heard some of the aftermarket weights don't fit right and ruin the threads on the putter but that could be fear and doubt disseminated from the SC fanatics.

As we mentioned before, this is a funny as hell thread. I bought a long Scotty Cameron Kombi Studio Select putter, chopped it off at the top of the long grip, and gave it a round. The length and shaft angle were wrong since it was not designed to be a short putter. So I got a torch, heated up the elbow near the putter head and gave it a few good pushes to change the angle to something more manageable.

 

It was still too heavy, and I didn't have the proper tool to take out the center weight, but noticed that it was a hex-key shape. So, I went to the dollar store and bought a set of Allen Wrenches. Then, I got out my Dremel tool, ground down each side of the next biggest size Allen Wrench until I could tap it into the screws with the handle of a screwdriver. A little squirt of WD40 and some elbow grease, that center weight came right out just as smooth as diarrhea from a baby's bottom. 

 

To get the heel and toe weights out, I got the same torch, turned it on my golf shoe spike repair tool, then bent the spikes a little outwards. A little squirt of WD40, and some elbow grease, got those out as well just as smooth as Elton John came out. 

 

I'm sorry, how much does Scotty want to do the same thing, and how long does he want to keep my putter? 

 

Ain't nobody got time fo' dat. I've got some golf to play.

Well, at least you'll never have to worry about anyone stealing that particular putter! a2_wink.gif

Thanks braddah :beer:.

 

While the angle looked pretty good after torching and torquing it, I went out and bought a cheapo putter that had "850g" on a sticker on it, that the shaft will fit my Scotty Cameron Kombi head. So, I removed the head, and will soon weigh both of them to see if I can adjust the weights a tad on my SC to make it feel right for me. 

 

Hopefully my modifications will get Scotty Cameron's seal of approval. If not, oh dear! What shall I do? :-P

Is there a difference in the weights SC uses for their putters? I have a 2014 SC squareback and I would like to change the 10g weights to 15g or 20g weights? I do not mind if they are aftermarket as long as they fit. Any recommendations?

The weights for the Square Back and Fast Back are different than for other SC putters (Newport, Futura X, GoLo)  so make sure the weights you buy are for SB/FB.  I've used aftermarket weights in all my SC putters without a problem, even in a new Fastback.

My squareback and I believe the 15g weights feel better.
