I like Scottys but I wouldn't spend that much on one. I don't mind my mass-produced Scotty anyway.

Delusional is about all I can say although I guess with any hobby, we all spend an obscene amount of money on it.

This price is not surprising. Tour issue Camerons go for a lot of money. They are obviously worth it to the people who collect them.

It's nothing to do with how good a putter they may or may not be. The people who buy these particular models rarely if ever use them.

Probably best to let people spend their many as they see fit.

My personal view is that it seems to be a little immature to collect things that say "Tour Use Only" and such stamped and embroidered all over them, but I can certainly see the attraction of a lot of the 009 putters.

We are not talking about a mass produced OTR Cameron here.

Regardless of that the news says somebody has money.  What's fishy is how many "collectable" SC's  are available on E-Bay. Somebody else knows when to take the money and run.

I fail to see what the big deal is - I can get the Damascus by the dozen, directly from a Chinese supplier. When I Googled it - that link came up!

Play lucky bid  on E-bay!

I don't think it's about the putter or its performance -- it's about the name and having something no one else has...

If golfers were serious about their putting and wanted to spend $380-800, imho, they'd get fitted for an Edel. Something that actually works for their stroke.

Its a collectors item and an investment.  Thoses putters never see the course and hold there value.

This sums up my thoughts.

Before I found out about Edel I used Camerons almost exclusively because:

a) they always felt good (not a fan of inserts).

b) almost all of them had toe hang

c) they were almost all fairly simple - even the Detour - in appearance

d) their specs were as close to the listed values as any other putter(s) out there.

I did eight damascus specials in 2005 for the PGA Trade show in Orlando. They sold to collectors at $1000 a piece. Each head was different and one of a kind. No telling where they are now but all the collectors are in the U.S. that purchased them.

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
