apart from looks which I don't mind, what do you guys think about the putter?

i am thinking of buying it used and it seems like a decent putter.

all i've read from other reviews are regarding its looks...

its the 2003 model- any thoughts?

Why?

Do you need that help?

One of the first big MOI putters. Better Tech and Refinements have emerged since 2003 that you can purchase as used. Unless you want some thing that says "Scotty" on it.

I wasn't a big fan. Couldn't seem to get the ball to roll straight off the face.

If you're looking for a high MOI putter, TM Daddy Long Legs, Ping Nome and Odyssey TANK are getting a lot of good reviews.

As someone that is still using the putter, I can say that it works for me. I have the mid version and it provides a great roll. I had to get past the sound which is a little "ting", but the sound of the ball rattling in the cup more than makes up for it.

I retired it last year... It was a good putter when I used it regularly on fast greens, but on slow greens it just doesn't explode off the face enough. I found that I changed my stroke to compensate... moved on the the odyssey 2ball, much heavier and a smoother roll on all types of greens. Good luck!

Hey everyone new to this site, but i thought i'd put in my 2 cents. I used a Futura and as great of a putter as it was like mentioned before if you play slower greens it may cause some problems if you use your normal stroke. When it was time to hang it up I looked at a few different options. I rolled a white hot two ball (not a big insert guy), itsy bitsy spyder (again insert), and a black series two ball. The black series felt great, but for the price i thought why not get another Cameron. That was until a friend showed up with one the the worst looking putters I have ever seen. He had bought an Odyssey sabertooth backstyke. At first I kinda chuckled, but then I took it for a spin. Wow I thought every putt just rolled perfect off the face to my suprise. To shorten the story I went out and bought one and haven't looked back. Even with the insert (which i had preached against for so long) it felt great. So my opinion save your self some cash and pick one up. I know they can be had for around $60-$90 new now a days.

I've been using this putter since 2003, it will need to be pried out of my cold, dead hands!  I love this thing, once you get used to it, leaving it in the garage in your golf bag will not be ok anymore.  Mine is in a nice velvet lined box, sorta coffin like, next to my bed. I buy it gifts every holiday, no kidding.  My only issue is when playing in direct sunlight this thing shines back in your face like that nice side mounted cop car light! Seriously, that's the only issue i have with this putter.  I can use it from well off the green with ease.  Putting is my favorite part of the game and i couldn't imagine using another putter. Grab an old one for cheap on ebay and try it out, give it a few rounds and you'll love it.

    • Plus, it looks deliscious! 
    • I play. I don't practice very often. I am just a bit below a four, and very comfortable with my ability. I don't play tournaments, and only play for enjoyment and exercise. I'm 63, and my "working at it" days are done. If things start going sideways,I will take an occasional lesson, but a nice enjoyable walk with my friends is much more important to me than a score.
    • If you sign up for a net tournament, you know what you are getting.  There will, most likely, be someone around the mid to upper 60's.  Know that going in and you won't be disappointed with the result.
    • If you find the course fairly empty on an afternoon, play some holes and practice situationals. Do you have a hole with four greenside bunkers that you often bogie? Well, drop two or three balls in each bunker and see how close to the pin you can get. You may realize that the 56* is ideal for three, but the fourth bunker requires a 60* because you need to get the ball up quickly. Do you have a dogleg that gives you trouble? Hit a couple of shots each with a driver, 3W and hybrid, see which one sets you up best for the second shot. A short par 4 dogleg right that lasers out to 190 yards at the corner. Can you readily get the ball up high enough to cut the corner and get an easy chip for up and down? Try it with driver and 3W and see if it works. If you normally fade the ball, can you hit a teeshot draw into a fairway that drains all the tee shots off to the right? Try it out during on-course practice.
    • As you know, Chuck, I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum. Playing for scores/tracking handicap hasn't interested me as much the past couple of years, because I just know I've got some fundamental things wrong going on with my swing. I have felt that if I can just make a big breakthrough with my mechanics that my new baseline will be better than the "bogey golf" standard that I've typically played to, without lessons. I've played on and off my whole life un-seriously, and I've always been about the same. Then again, why would I get better if I'm not really changing anything? I decided that my home-grown "swing my swing" mechanics have hit their limit, so I've been pretty determined to just do what it takes to get better. It has definitely been more difficult than I had thought it would be, but I think I'm improving and changing things- even if not as fast as I had hoped. If nothing else, I'm certainly aware of what I need to do more than I was! I won't always favor practice over playing, and I'm still hoping for a breakthrough (sooner rather than later- perhaps months away) where I'll be happy again to get out there and play as much as I practice. Hopefully more. You've seen all the threads on practice and learning, but I'll include the couple that keep me motivated below. Like Erik is saying, it's not a secret.  I find it motivating to put into practice the ideas about making changes "unconscious" in the thread about stages of learning. If that's not motivating to you, I guess I don't know what to say. It just keeps me going and is as simple as that. In my mind, if you don't really seek out to change something, there's little chance you'll be advancing your game to where you want it long-term.
