I'm thinking of getting my first Scotty Cameron putter after trying a Red X3 for a few holes. I have always used mallets and like the SBST putting stroke. Any Red X3 experienced users out there have opinions on the new squareback or fastback? I read the latter are more face balanced than the X3.

I've also tried the MacGregor Bobby Grace Sunset in the store and it felt very good with a SBST stroke. It's hard to really judge any of these putters on the store's putting surface though.

    I used my X5 all season, love the thing. It's going to take something quite phenomenal to knock it out. But I too am eying either the squareback or fastback. I'd like to at least give them a roll and see what's up. Sorry I can't compare for you....but I'd like to know the same things.
