what are the differences between these two? is GSS more expensive than Swiss GSS or vice versa?

 

Depends on the import tax...?

 

Realize there are differences in milling as lamont and probably others can explain, but the chances you as a golfer could discern GSS from swiss (or American, etc) in a blind test are minimal. In short, there's probably no practical difference.

Swiss GSS is clearly superior, mainly due to the water that's used in the cooling process. Minute levels of minerals in the water cause quantum changes in the metal structure. This results in a feeling that most describe as a more "pure" feeling putter, which leads to improved distance control and better putting.

 

You know I'm right.

I know the water makes New York pizza crust taste better so you certainly must be correct.

I believe there is some difference. The GSS just ‘looks’ different. Take a look at a button back with the GSS insert. The insert definitely looks different. Feel? Meh...

Buttonback with GSS insert? It’s a terrylium insert aka copper.

I’m sorry but 10k for a GSS putter is completely justified.

 

Right!

 

Just because a COA says GSS on it, it doesn’t make it so. Did you see the manifest from Germany? How do you know that you are really paying for GSS? Pretty much on faith folks.

Swiss GSS is neutral based on the history of where it comes from. It will neither hurt nor help your putting. :)

Though much is taken much abides;
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Man you guys are brutal. Not a Cameron fanboi so forgive me for getting the model wrong. OK I believe it would be a studio stainless with GSS insert. Be gentle now....

I think you mean Studio Style, the Studio Stainless didn’t have an insert. :)
