Hopefully Mr. Cameron will choose to participate more actively with MGS this year.

Innovative, or more of the same?

Titleist Introduces New Scotty Cameron Select Putters 

High Performance Models Enhance Feel and Feedback Through Multi-Material Constructions with New Face Inlay Technology 

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (January 26, 2016) – The new Scotty Cameron Select putters, engineered with innovative new face inlay technology, blend precision milled Scotty Cameron craftsmanship with enhanced multi-material constructions to deliver tour-validated performance with unmatched feel and feedback. 

Available in golf shops beginning April 8, the new Select putters feature sleek, performance-oriented models with new technology, shapes and configurations to satisfy the variety of strokes, styles and preferences of golfers at every level of the game. Central to the new Select line are three unique multi-material constructions matched to each putter style. Each construction utilizes new face inlay technology to produce responsive feel and feedback that Scotty Cameron describes as “soft but solid.” 

“This new Select line promotes feel while expanding what's possible with performance,” Cameron said. “We've extended the methodology of our proven multi-material technology to include new stainless steel inlays for blades, as well as aluminum inlays for the mid-mallet models. The result is a better look, a better sound, a better feel and a better product.” 

The new face inlays – which wrap around the sole and disappear from the player's view at address, as opposed to a traditional face insert that occupies only a specific center section of the face – are presented in three unique setups to complement each putter shape and size: 

        • New Select NewportNewport 2 and Newport 2.5 models, the next generation of Scotty's longtime tour favorites, are modern heel-and-toe weighted blades designed to support flowing strokes. Each model features a sole-to-topline 303 stainless steel inlay that is precision mid-milled and hand-buffed to a brilliant, metallic finish, then bonded to the stainless steel body using high-tech vibration dampening material. This fusion of materials provides golfers with responsive feel and feedback at impact. 

        • New Select Newport 2 Notchback â€“ a slightly larger, angular modern blade with a notched flange – features a sole-to-topline 6061 aircraft grade aluminum inlay anodized in gunmetal gray. The lightweight aluminum inlay, bonded to the stainless steel body with vibration dampening material, enhances sound and feel while moving more weight from the stainless steel to the perimeter for improved MOI and stability. 
​ 
        • New Select Newport M1 and Newport M2 mid-mallets combine a 6061 aircraft grade aluminum inlay with Scotty's face-sole pop-through technology. The face-sole is a single piece of lightweight aluminum that comprises the face inlay, wraps down and around to create the midsection of the sole and pops through the flange to create the sightline field. This construction concentrates weight on the perimeter to produce higher MOI and stability for “straight back/straight through” strokes. The lightweight aluminum face-sole is fine tuned for sound and feel through vibration dampening material attached to the stainless steel core. 

“While performance is always the end goal, I first design for aesthetics. Initially, a design has to appeal to the eye. But, when you examine the components, you can appreciate the technology that goes into creating these amazing new putters,” Cameron said. “I've worked with insert ideas for years. This is the culmination of my research, the various inlays we've developed for this new line.” 

A new Select Newport 2 Notchback Dual Balance model is also available for those players who prefer a Newport-style head but need maximum stability in their stroke. Like all Dual Balance models, Newport 2 Notchback DB has a 50-gram heavier head (400 grams total) and a 50-gram counterweight in the butt of the shaft. This configuration helps many players make a proper stroke where the butt of the shaft remains pointed at the midsection. 

Each new Select putter features advanced stability weighting with two, customizable stainless steel heel-toe weights, stepless steel shafts and supple Red Matador Mid-size grips developed to offer the comfort of a larger grip while maintaining responsiveness and feel (Newport 2 Notchback DB employs a 15-inch Dual Balance grip). 

Scotty refined the Select line's raw stainless steel finish with a unique bead blast for a radiant yet glare resistant appearance. Additionally, his tour-inspired graphics blend the familiar three bright translucent red dots with engraved typography that represents this modern, high-tech line. 

PRODUCT FEATURES: 

        • MULTI-MATERIAL TECHNOLOGY performance-matched to each putter style. 303 stainless steel inlays are paired with putters designed to support flowing strokes; 6061 aircraft grade aluminum inlays and face-sole construction selected for models designed for higher MOI and “straight-back/straight-through” strokes. 

        • BALANCE AND FORGIVENESS from Select heel-and-toe weighting technology, perfectly matched to shaft length. 

        • ENHANCED ALIGNMENT OPTIONS from milled flange sight lines to crisscross pop-through visual cues. 

        • RESPONSIVE FEEL AND FEEDBACK from integrated vibration dampening system connecting mid-milled face inlays and face-sole components. 

        • TOUR-PROVEN PERFORMANCE and feedback from player-preferred soft, supple Red Matador Midsize grip. 

        • MODERN AESTHETICS from sole-to-topline inlays and face-sole pop-through technology to misted finishes and refined colors and graphics.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY: Select putters will be available beginning April 8 in golf shops worldwide: 

        New Select putters: MAP $379 | MSRP $410

those are some sweet looking putters. I like the 2-tone on the body and face and red accents and grip are a cool color combo,  and especially appreciate the high weights, but no German steel face???

I'm happy to see that putters are starting to get heavier.  

 

If Mr. Cameron put the 3 red jewels on the "club" sitting in front of him in the picture, that might be just right.  :)

After telling the wife that once I found my Circle T Circa 62 I was done buying Cameron putters this year I guess I will have to tell her I was joking.  The M2 looks fantastic!

There may be something to these. I'm very interested in seeing the difference between the old and new Newport 2.5

Its interesting that the inserts are aluminum, which Scotty is touting for its properties of "soft feel". I can remember when he made the switch from Carbon Steel to Stainless, he said it was in response to the pros using as softer ball (Pro-V1), so he needed to make the face harder to compensate to get the same feel.. (remember in Scotty language, 'sound = feel'). Now, I guess people are using a harder ball, so he needs to soften the face that much? To me, its almost like he's in a Taylor-Madeesque vicious circle of "innovation" where he is expected to unveil something radically new every year...

Yeah I feel like the 'reinventing' of the wheel is just a huge marketing scheme. But regardless, I buy into it, I love his damn putters.

Went into the store and fully intended to buy one but ended up with last years Newport. I just like the feel of a solid piece of steel. Not a huge fan of inserts but they did look amazing

I really like these, and may look into getting one later in the year. I've gotten to compare the Newport to my current gamer (Ping Cadence Anser 2 heavy) and the Newport just feels so good and effortless and I do enjoy the feel of those matador grips. I'd probably lean towards getting on of the heavy ones.
