    Hi all,

    Has anyone here in the UK had their Scotty personalised and if so could you help with a few details?

    Roughly what were the shipping costs to get it back to Scotty Cameron and did it reach there safely? Who did you use? How long did it take to before you got it back? Can you post a pic of your finished baby for some idea's?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Paul,

    Its been a while since I used the custom shop, mainly for COA'ing tour putters but I can give you some tips.

    Cheapest way to ship is to pull the head and ship the head only. Especially if you are having a restoration and they will reshaft it as part of the resto and dump the original. I have pulled heads of tour putters that were not being restored but paid to have them reshafted, new grip installed along with a new cover and COA.

    Cant remember exactly on costs but head only on a fast UPS service (I usually use interparcel.com, put in the package info and they give you a lot of options) can be around £20-30.

    Times vary, again I'm not up to speed on restorations etc but it can be a couple of months although I think I read they can be 12 weeks now?

    What putter are you sending and what are you thinking of having done?

    Tom

    They wont, they have no affiliation with SC, just someone who set up their own website, buying cheap off ebay, facebook, Cameron forums and direct from studio releases and then offering all items on their site for ridiculous mark ups.

    I was just about to have a look at that so thanks for the update.
    Don't think I would trust anyone other than Scotty Cameron themselves to do it as the putter was my wedding present from my wife so no chances can be taken with this!!

    Thanks also Tom C for your previous information, I kept meaning to reply but have been so busy but had some time today.
    I am a little concerned with pulling the head due to my previous comment about the sentimental value (it might be silly but the whole putter is what she bought me and it means everything to me because she knew how much I wanted one).
    I'll have a think about that and make a decision but it will definitely be done just to finish it off?

    Oophf, 12 weeks. I can’t miss my putter for that long. But would love some customisation on it though.

    Also about taking out the shaft, i guess I would let that be done by an experienced club builder before I damage anything. Or is it easier than it seems?

    I used to send many a putter across to the Scotty Studio to have them refurbished and customised, the refurbishment costs were around $100 - $150 ten years ago and the exchange rate was a lot better in favour of the £.
    I had about 20 mainly Newport 2s in my collection a few years back. It was good fun and their work was excellent you almost felt you were having a brand new putter returned, you can also have them look unique with a different paint fill custom headcover and grip to your choice. Check out the website www.scottycameron.com/.../shoppingcart.aspx

    However here's the bad news, with the associated costs of shipping to the states and back, the current exchange rate, the approximate increase of 300% increase on the charges by Scotty Cameron for their services along with the duties you pay for their services on custom handling charges in most cases you're now better off buying a brand new scotty.
    If you have that beloved Scotty Cameron that you want lovingly restored back to its former glory then as previously mentioned above remove the shaft from the head and send just the head in.
    I used Royal Mail with no problem, if you have two putters send them in together as that will effectively split the shipping costs, £20 out and around £40 back, cost will come in around £250 for standard refurbishment add to this the customs duty of between £60 to a £80 then its going to cost you over £300 for the privilege even more if you add custom stamping and custom grip and headcover.
    Here's pictures of my 2008 Studio Select Newport II in SSS with a custom shop stamp, and my initials ''D.S.'' in the dots, and my name across the bumpers.
