Question for Slighter putter users

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if there are any retail putters that can be tried that have close to the same feel of these putters. I have always wanted a custom putter but would like to know how it felt before i bought it. I would probally go with the black finish if that matters. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

I find the Sligher has a much softer feel than retail Camerons.

 

BUT I do have some advice and have posted before about this on various forums.

 

Other please take note and might post this elsewhere.

 

Tom has a tendency to tip his putter shafts a little more than usual. It's one of his signature items.

 

When I received my putter, it felt firm. Distance control was great but I wanted a less firm feeling on the tip of my putter. I asked Tom how it was setup - and he told me about his tipping. We talked and concluded that I would be more comfortable with less tipping. I sent it back and Tom reshafted with less tipping.

 

Wow! What a difference.

 

Very soft, pleasing feel.

 

When you order - remember this tip!

I have 2 Slighters and also have a Catalina 2 which Tom refinshed for me.....The Catalina 2 has a softer feel as it is made out of carbon steel while my Slighters are 303 SS...The Catalina 2 is one of the softer Scottys so its a tough comparison...The Slighters have a firmer feel.....Almost like a Pro Platinum but a tad softer it that helps....

I agree with SwingMan. These putters feel great, much softer than retail Cameron's. Don't hesitate. Tom is great to deal with, and to this day is still the best feeling putter I've ever tried.

 

 

 

I have a Slighter Seattle Prototype made for Blade Golf and I agree about the much softer feel than any retail putter I have tried, including the Camerons. It was originally a stainless finish and Tom refinished it for me in a 3X black finish and all I can say is wow. I have a Newport 2 1997 gun blue which comes close to the feel but IMO, the Slighter is still softer and much more solid, mine is made out of 303 SS steel I believe.

You can also have Tom make the putter out of carbon steel for like the Catalina was made out of. This should make it feel better.
