Right, was thinking the same thing.  This has more of the 009 look, right?

 

Yes the Newport is much more close to the 009 with a flat topline and bumpers and shoulders that are similar to the 009. The old BBs had the high toe, which many didn't care for. The new NP2 is also a much better shape IMO.

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.
- Lord Tennyson

Safe to say 90% who have them on hand have it listed on the bay

Don't get me wrong, I'm not above flipping something for a profit but dern the flippers and gougers are getting out of hand.

 

Like others have said, this is my holy grail/white whale putter. It's made to be gamed and 100000% going in the bag, permanently.

Seeing the paint fill gone definitely changes my mind about it

Sell for 1200 buy a np2 for 1200 will be your best chance 

I despise the fact that this platform enables a market for price gougers when many people want this putter to game it. I don't want to contribute to the sustainability of that market although it's a wash in terms of pricing. I originally reserved a NP2 but something shady took place. This was a "make it right" type of deal from the store manager.

I had one reserved and was putting in my shipping info when I get a call from the guy saying there was a  price change and I needed to pay $685, for most thats not a lot but I make $14 an hour and shipping brought it over $700 so I had to give it up.

Typo on shipping

Only thing worse than a Scotty flipper is a Toulon flipper!  

 

 


I deserve that. 😆 I still think the price on these will come down fast. To me, they’re beyond ugly - the Merica stripes and huge Champion font on the bottom ruin it. If it was just a new button back I’d be excited. They did a lot better with the T22.

I will never get in the way of someone who has an in demand product and charges whatever the market will bear.  That's just the way it is, more power to the seller.  It sure beats being on the flip side and sitting on inventory no one wants!

 

And yes, I love 'merica too...it doesn't mean I want all that noise on my putter.  You are so right...just release the button back as it was, and make it part of the regular releases...a ton of them will sell!

Im tired of people buying stuff just to flip it around for more money... the jokes on them. Not many ppl are willing to pay the stupid upcharge so they get stuck looking like idiots. Not everything is ment to be flipped geez.


Anything that is a “drop” or “limited” release is pretty much meant to get flipped. They know what they’re doing. If the button back was just their 2022 line you wouldn’t be seeing this.

I called like 10 places and couldn't find anyone that was allocated any in LH. Not just that they were sold out, but that they didn't even get any. Disappointed that they would finally release something in LH but make it so limited that it's almost impossible to even get one. 

Same here. Called around the same amount of stores, both US and Canada, and no dice - nothing allocated.

Not exactly... its limited because its a special release scotty cameron is offering at not much more then the standard offerings... $600 vs $400... if i was in the market for a scotty i might say.. you know what for $200 more why not get the special edition and then use it or keep it... instead you have people who arent going to use or keep it buying them up and doubling and trippling the price $1200 plus dollars. Thats called being a word not allowed imo.  If you bought it and never used it and kept it 3plus years and then decided to sell at the same or a bit of higher price i understand but to buy it and soon as its in your possession put it for sale for double is terrible. Same thing with the gameing system market. Everyone bought them up and stuck them at $1000 but now they are all stuck with the systems.
