The Scotty Cameron Studio Select is a family of precision milled 303 Stainless Steel Newport-style putters featuring a bold red tour graphic apperance, an improved high toe profile, and heel & toe circular sole weights that allow for multiple length options in each model. The Studio Select also features a stepless shaft for a clean look at address and soft but solid feel, as well as a new red Cameron cord grip.
The circular heel-toe weights provide increased stability by reducing head rotation on off-center impacts for a larger sweet spot. The factory adjustable weights are set to provide the proper headweight-to-shaft length combination. The improved high toe profile of Studio Select helps eliminate the tendency to raise the toe at address thereby causing the player to aim left of target. Same round, “full” body of the Newport, but with a flared neck for less offset at address.
My previous putter was a zebra teardrop which in my opinion is a great lower cost club. I was very pleased with it but when I had a go of the scotty it blew it away which was a surprise as I felt that the zebra was perfect for me. So if your like me in the way that you think your putter is good but there might be a better one out there then give the Scotty a go, you might be surprised. The price is steep but you definetely get what you pay for with this club.
Retail prices are close to $500, be sure to check out some better deals on the Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 1.5.
