New Cleveland Putters

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So I picked up the Cleveland Classic 2 for 65 dollars about 4 months ago and have been impressed. I have always loved their wedges and figured I would give their putter a try. Over the years I have owned five or six scotties and a couple pings. I really feel that these Cleveland Classics putt just as well if not better than any of the previous putters I have owned.
I was just wondering if anyone has tried out these putters and if they think they can compete with Scotty Cameron?

I have a Classic 2. When I got it I loved it - I probably will again one day - solid putter, but I don't think Scotty Cameron is losing any sleep over them.

I have a classic 1 and like it alot. They aren't meant to compete with Scotty's. They cost $70 brand new.

For those of us who realize it is the archer and not the arrow they are a great option.

The classic line has won on tour before too.

I have a three year old Cleveland VP1 milled putter that I love. I like it so much it replaced my Bettinardi for the time being. I think Cleveland is doing a great job at making some great clubs for the short game......which EVERYONE needs work on. Smart company.

I have a BRZ 4.5 model. The feel is nearly on par with my Scotty, but I don't really like the insert. I prefer the original one, but I got the putter for free so it doesn't really matter.

Re: New Cleveland Putters Better than Scotty Cameron

I think "better" is a little subjective. But they are fantastic putters. And for $70, it's an exceptional value. When I sent my Scotty in for some work, I was going to get the Classic Series #1 for my temporary club because it had similar feel and weighting to my Scotty.

If anyone is considering a milled face putter, they should definately check out the Cleveland Classic Series. Fantastic putters they are.

Is that the mallet putter? If so, I've got the same one and I love it!! I demo'd every putter golf galaxy and Dick's had available and it was my clear favorite. Granted, they didn't have any scotty cameron putters, but I wouldn't have bought one anyways.

Why have you singled out Scotty Cameron putters here?
Any putter of any brand can compete with any other putter. It is what suits you that matters.
I wish that people would stop carrying on about SC putters as if they are some sort of benchmark. They make good putters. So do all other manufacturers. You have found a putter that you like, have said that to you it feels as good if not better than your previous SC putters. You have answered your own question.
In any case, the Cleveland putter is cast, not milled, so is therefore a lot cheaper. They don't "compete" based on price, which seems to be the yardstick of quality for many, which is obviously insane, but you read it here time and time again. But there is absolutely no reason why a cast putter (with or without a milled face) should not be as good as a milled one.

So I'm guessing you haven't tried one? I have a Cleveland Classics BRZ 4.5 and a Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2, and I have to say the feel is close. Not the same, but for the money I recommend the Cleveland to anyone looking for a very very good putter.

Re: New Cleveland Putters Better than Scotty Cameron

I just bought a Cleveland Classic 2 and I love it. Ive owned Camerons and Bettinardis and IMO the Cleveland Classic is every bit as good as either of those putters and a lot more expensive. Its very impressive that Cleveland can make such a great putter and sell it at such a low price.

I went to Golf Galaxy the other day and tried the some putters out and the Cleveland Platinum Black CC2 putter might be one of the best putters I have ever used.. The feel is ridiculous, the look is great, it rolls the ball dead on, but the best part is its only $79.99!!!!!!!!This might be only of the best deals out there right now if it was a sale but it's not it's the regular price....  I dont talk up alot of equipment but I really had to mention these putters do yourself a favor and give these a chance you wont regret it....

 

I can't wait to go back this week to pick it up.....

I've played the Cleveland Classic 2 - same design as the new Platinum Black you referenced.      This old school mallet design feels good to me ... I just hate that hard rubber grip Cleveland uses on their Classic series (I know, easy enough to change ... but don't get why they use that grip) doh.gif

I think you misread what he said.  I understood that he was saying something similar to what you said...
