    So i got an email from Golf Avenue and they’re having 25% sale off Titleist products and they had one putter, being LH. They say it’s still at about a 7/10 used wise but only $158. Go for it or wait since it’s not a fitted putter.

    I'm with Todd. That poor thing looks like it was dragged behind a cart along the cart path. No doubt you can find a better one.
  4. I would never buy a putter without trying it, but if you are familiar with the type and know exactly what you want, then I would buy it. That being said, this one looks like it has seen lots of action. I think people you do not treat their clubs with respect should be subject to a fine. I hate seeing abused golf clubs. If price is an issue for you, then I would buy it, as the nicks appear to only be cosmetic. If price is not an issue, then I would wait to find a used one in better condition.

    Oh, 7 from 10! I think this SC Futura is not in a good condition. The face looks terrible. Be careful.

    Putters are all a matter of personal preference. If it looks good to your eye and feels good coming thru the ball then go for it. I would go to your local golf store and try out putters and see which one meets these criteria. I believe in trying (or in the case of buying a car test driving it) one out before considering it. Good Luck!!!

    It’s not a great deal for a putter that used. But if you like that model, and the feel of the dual balance Cameron putters, grab it with the discount. With the putter being dual balance, it might be difficult to fit because changing the length might cause issues with the back-weighting.

    Think I’m going to hold off, since that seems to be the consensus. I’m gonna try and go test some out before making a decision, which is probably pretty smart :)

    If you think about it, its the club used for most strokes in your round. Probably need to make sure its the one that fits and the one you love, even if you have to invest a few more $$$ to get it right.

    That putter looks pretty dinged up to me.i think holding off is wise.
  11. I have had people say they can't believe it when I spend $500 or so on a putter. However, as others have stated, the putter is the most used club in your bag. I work on my putting more than anything else, and when I analyse a game like I had today, 5 greens in regulation, 26 putts, 5 over par. Sidenote, we played in 30k winds, gusting up to 50k at times. Of the 13 greens I missed, I managed to get up and down 8 times. Some were good chips to within 2-3 feet, others were solid 10-12 foot putts. It is the most important club in your bag, you want it to be a good one.

    sometimes we let price influence our decisions...Iam also looking at used Scotty putters..I know I want a face balance putter and I make sure the head cover comes with it..A lot of suppliers like Global Golf and 2nd swing will not include them with purchase but will sell them to you if you buy used..it may take a little longer to find the one that fits you want have a check list on what your looking for like any nicks or dings on face if so I always wonder why if you have a head cover..shaft bend...head cover included .grip condition...good luck on your search..

    I'm looking into moving into a Scotty, and, like you, I've been looking at used models. For me, it's not a matter of getting a Scotty for the prestige of it, but rather finding the right model that works. I sell on eBay, and the market is flooded with poor condition Cameron putters going for top dollar. Things that add value are a matching head cover and an authentic grip, and that's worth paying a little more for. A Scotty Cameron won't make you a better player, but the right one will, so do your research and beware of fakes.
    Good luck.
  14. i sometimes play with a CALIENTE that I purchased when it first came out; Twenty or so years ago. someone offered me $350 for it; since I'm not a touring pro, nor a bona fide collector(although the 1905 laddie boy Wright and Ditson is authentic, i usually put with a two-ball knock-off and use a Bobby Locke style.

    Not much into changing putters, so not really am not good target for retailers nor ebay. I have two Scotty's. My newest is the 2016 model Newport 2 Select Chrome Notchback, which was the last year that model was offered. It is a demo club and trusted the person I purchased it from, a Titleist account. I also have the same club in black, bought it new from a Titleist dealer also. I like the way they set up. I changed the grips to Golf Pride SNSR Tour 105s. Love the midsize grips. Have found that it is more the Indian than the arrow. It takes a lot of work. I would never purchase a putter without testing it first and knowing it is the right fit for me. Not into collecting, into gaming my clubs. With respect to all opinions. Cheers.

    Aside from the aesthetics, you can't be sure if the loft/lie/weights/offset are standard. Getting a fitting to check on how your swing mates to the the putter settings is as important as a driver fitting. With a thorough swing analysis, then, if needed, the putter can be adjusted to your stroke. Even buying one used, you would need to work with a fitter. My fitter will do the adjustments on a new Scotty, but the putter fitting and adjustments would run up to $100 for an older putter. At that point, the price difference is small. Only worth it if the style you really want is out of production.
