    $1,200 iron sets are nothing new and PXG certainly did not pioneer that price point.

    Callaway Great BB titanium irons were over $2,000 in the late 90s. The Biggest BB was $600 when it was released.

    The list goes on and on. I’ll say it again, golf clubs are pretty affordable relative to what they cost 20 years ago.

    Factor in annual release cycles and playing with pro-line equipment has never been more affordable. Back in the 90s it was typical to see boxed sets out there than a full bag of whatever pro-line manufacturer.

    If SC went back to the solid design SS milled putters, they would sell at the 500-600 price point. For example, The putter we have seen Matsuyama using , would sell like hot cakes .

    By solid do you mean with or without the adjustable weights? The adjustable weights are here to stay definitely.

    The talk over at TCC before it tanked was that the Hideki putter you mentioned will be similar to the next OTR Select release. I also think that's a a great move, but everyone will still b**** anyways.

    I think everyone in this thread is well aware that we aren’t getting anything the tour pros use. I could be wrong but I can’t think of a single tour pro that uses a Scotty putter that we can buy off the shelf. We get a watered down version with a story about tour feedback and smoother lines and beveled edges.

    I’m not saying the product isn’t as good, or better, than most others out there. I’m just saying the economics don’t support Scotty mass producing putters made from GSS because putters made from the most premium materials are going to bring an even higher price point. Whatever putter comes out will be polarizing because of the brand.

    Two things are almost certain.

    1.) It’s HIGHLY UNLIKELY the off the rack offering will find its way into a PGA Tour player’s bag.

    2.) Us lefties will get the shaft and get 2 options and complain about that as well. 😀

    At one time, $299 was unheard off price for a putter, now it seems $299 is almost a standard price for a OEM putter. Look at the current Cameron list prices, nothing under $399.
    I would not doubt a re-release of Stainless Newport's and Newport 2's at $599 or $699 is too far.

    We better don’t look at the price of drivers. At some point I believe the manufacturers themselves are helping to kill Golf with such big prices on everything regardless that most gear is made in China in these days...

    Costs of materials have gone up, cost to transport has gone up, while made overseas many assemble in the states and labor costs have gone up. Companies are spending more on r&d and marketing. A large portion of a releases budget is marketing.

    Actually, Scotty Cameron has done this before, in an article with GOLF magazine, he stated he price his putters to a price the market would support, this marketing ploy, in my opinion was followed by PXG, I am sure you can find post here bashing them when they first introduced $1,200 plus iron sets.
    Now, many don’t even blink an eye. A driver today costs more than my complete PING set in ‘82, including a BECU putter.

    I understand your intended point, but EVERYTHING costs more than it did in 1982!!!

    Sorry, by “solid” I meant no insert.

  • Redjeep83Redjeep83 Members Posts: 5,423 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    hopefully they go back to a solid putter but you have to look at it from the normal golf consumer perspective. Golf clubs that have the latest gadgets, gizmos and tech add on's sell more than plain jain clubs to these buyers. That is why you see these inserts etc. on the OTR releases to the public, trying to reach the masses over the tour golfer/better player.

    I have no idea but I'm sure the price will be $450+ as mentioned and they will be new and fresh but ultimately not really what people here wanted. This has been every Cameron release for years.
