Newport Scotty - Real or Fake?


Recommended Posts

Browsing around for a new gamer. Currently have a refinished Squareback but love the clean look of the Newport. Found one I liked on eBay but it was refinished so I’m not sure if it’s legit or not. Seller said the black finish (so 2012 release I believe) was removed from the original putter and now has a similar finish on it to the standard finish on Scotty’s. Seller was answering any questions I had and had a good rep. Just want to be sure before I buy. The weights are very chrome and I think the grip on those Scotty’s were black. Also I’ve never seen this headcover before. Don’t know too much about fakes, but tried to do my homework on this. p6rev0g9eez5.png

i'm not sold that it's fake. it's a little harder to tell based on it being refinished. the fakes on these are so obvious.

That’s why I came here to ask. It’s more of a raw finish that the normal finish I think. The very chrome weights make me wonder. The text all looks good. And so does the milling. The headcover is odd and I’ve never seen that shaft sticker before

Photo 2. Maybe he or she just messed with the back. Like, they popped out the silver o-rings and painted it black? The lettering in photo 2 also looks off.

 

Headcover is from 2008 line, but he took it upon him/herself to paint the circles black.

I agree. The neck’s angles are just too smooth and rounded and on cavity that’s top corner near the toe where the flange meets the top line there should be a vertical mill line that meets top line on the real ones but in the pics that line doesn’t go up to top line.

My 2 cents

I saw a similar one at Golf Galaxy in the used rack. It was a black model with the finish taken off. When I first picked it up and looked at the cavity I thought it was fake. But after looking at the milling and stamps, it was obviously real. Once you remove the finish from that model it makes it look odd and is even worse in person.
