    I’m right eye dominant so does that mean I should sell my Scotty Cameron Newport 2.6 putter?


    Definitely.

    Are you aiming it where you think you're aiming it?

    For those of you who've been gaming a cs putter for a while....have you tried going back to a traditional heel shafted putter?



    I went to PGA superstore recently to try some putters for fun and wow I couldn't hit any of them straight! Grabbed a cs off the rack and it just looked better and I rolled the putts better. Not sure if this is because the cs is right for me or if it just happened over time?




    I picked up a limited SC 5MBS which is CS last year to help my putting. I read around here and online that if you putt SBST a CS putter will usually fit you well. It immediately helped my putting. Being a club ho I have tried going away from it a few times and its always a huge struggle. Saturday I played in a tournament with a Spider Tour to the tune of 40 putts. I mean I probably would have only had 39 with the CS, lol. But I do find I lose something when I go away from the CS putter. Its weird.

    i have to say - this man has owned so many different putter types, brands, styles, etc...if he says the CS putter was a better fit for him, i believe it.

    Relieved to hear I'm not the only one. Sorry to hear about your 40 putts! I owned a Spider Tour for a brief stint while I was transitioning into the CS and it was the sweetest looking yet worst performing putter for me ever. I know there are great reviews about it but for a more SBST stroke, it felt like a heavy swinging door. One that ALWAYS opened and closed! Does put a nice tight roll on the ball though.



    I am not in love with my Cleveland HB #6c. But I am afraid I will have to commit to it until I can afford a CS that I really want. I have seen some sweet Bettinardi CS putters, saving up for one...

    Biggest issue with the Spider for me is distance control and the feel or lack of feel.



    Also, I have to love my putter and love how it looks or I stray very easily. The Scotty was stupid expensive but its badass looking.

    To resurrect this thread...



    I'm still not sure what the benefit of the centre shaft is. I use one, and I have other putters. Since other posts here have talked about left-eye dominance and offset, I was wondering if anyone could say how either is connected to the advantage. Is it placement?

    I tend to like using center shafted putters without forward press. The Seemore works great for me because I can cover the red dot. Probably the only CS putters I would use.

    So the elimination of a forward press? I guess it depends on the loft anyhow...

    My son is scratch, he uses a TM original Spider SC putter, all his friends have the latest and greatest, Scottys, Bettiʻs

    , etc. He takes a lot of their money iʻve noticed.
