I owned a Bett......was a beautiful putter, I was in the process of changing putting styles (arm lock), tried the style for almost 2 years. Went back to conventional length putter. Went with the the Cleveland Huntington Beach 1. Cost me one C note not 4 or more. Only limited experience I've had with a Scotty is my son has one, and changed to an Evnroll. He likes the Evnroll better. I would go  with a Bett.

If you want a�name� go Scotty If you want sweet milling and style go Betty If you want unique check out Xenon If you want form and function check out Kronos If you want super clean and awesome

IMHO and this is bottom line straight at you. Does not matter the brand or cost. Find a putter that feels good and looks good to you. You get those 2 things going then you have confidence. I have seen

My EvnRoll is as premium as most anything else I have played. It doesn't have the same mystique as a Scotty but it rolls the ball so true. You can tell by the build and look it is quality as well as

Loving the EVNROLL ER5 hatchback.  Had been a Taylormade putter guy for as far back as I can remember (Nubbins-->Corza Ghost-->Spider).    Can't imagine going back.   (As a LH, don't have all the same choices as everyone else)

 

 

 

Hello my fellow spys and friends, I plan on treating myself to a Scotty, Bettinardi or something that is a bit more expensive than I'd ever imagine spending I'm only 25 so I really shouldn't buy one with other priorities but I want to save up and purchase something nice... anyone with either kind of putter or something else please give me any feedback you can and some info on the brands. I know I use my putter probably more than any other club so it's my favorite...

Thanks my friends and hope to hear good things!

I hope I'm not to late, but I'm assuming I am since the initial post was in May.  I would strong suggest an Edel Torque balanced putter.  Their fitting system seems to be second to none.  Your eyes may be misleading you on where you think your putt is going to go.  Give the fitting system a try and I bet you'll be sold.  It's a little pricey, but it's something you could keep in your bag for 20 years easily.  I plan on it.  Sorry if people get tired of my Edel love fest.

I could never find a head shape or design that I liked from Bettinardi, so I've kinda stuck Scotty's. Both are high end and high priced so choose one that you feel comfortable putting with and fits your putting style.

My evnroll ER3 took a little getting used to after my Tommy armore (quite nice)

But the last few games I'm finding that I'm getting a LOT of putts very close on distance, and actually starting to get some to drop.

 

It's just such a clean and simple, yet quality piece from top to bottom.

Bought a Scotty about two years ago and have loved it since day one. I played an Odyssey mallet before that and the Scotty has a softer feel when you strike the ball which I like. My advice is to go out and handle them if you can before purchasing. Putters are one of those things that just have to feel right in your hands.

I have one Scotty, several Pings of various designs, a couple of Odysseys a Lotus and a PCB.  Some milled, some not.  The Scotty is a Studio Select Newport 2.6 and it is the go to stick in my bag.  I love a couple of the others too, but the Scotty rolls that ball just the way that I want it to.

My advice would be to spend your money getting fit first and then pick the stick that fits your stroke. Search Cool Clubs, Club Champion, or True Spec to see if any of them are in your area. They all offer a tour level fitting experience and will have all the top putter brands for you to try.

Try not to lock yourself into a choice before you try or test multiple options. The Scotty or Bettinardi or whatever brand name doesn't make it a better putter FOR  YOU only an expensive putter. I totally agree, the putter is the club in the bag that gets used the most, so it is worth the extra investment. 

Take a look at the current and past putter reviews here on MGS. There is lots of good feedback on some brands that may not quite be in your crosshairs. Evnroll and Odyssey EXO come to mind right away. 

Another thing to consider when pricing, is keep some set aside for proper fitting. It would do little good to zero in on the Scotty for brand prestige and quality, only to choose a model that doesn't fit your stroke/style of putting.

Check out the Bobby Grace putters you will love the immediate roll they put on the ball. 

+1 For Bobby Grace.  I "stole" a near new 18 Blade off eBay a month ago.  I played a custom fitted (short length, flat lie, heavy weight, grip) Evnroll ER3 all last season - and loved it - and the stock unfitted Grace puts it to shame.  No joke.  Yes, makes me wonder about the fitting, but I know the fitter well and it was legit.

I have nothing against Bobby grace putters, just a bit expensive if bought directly and not from the secondary market. He has had speed control inserts for a long time and they seem to work.

 

When you were fitted was it specifically for an Evnroll or was it for a putter in general? What was the process? What specs are the grace? The 18 blade is very toe down compared to most Evnroll putters so it may be a better fit for your stroke. Wonder how the grace would compare to the 8.3 that is going to be release next year.

Save your money for lessons and purchase the new Cleveland Huntington Beach SOFT. Terrific double milled putter that is under $130!

SeeMore isn't in the class of "high-end putters", but one can certainly find ones on their site that are $350 or more. After sending in my videos, and having those guys do a virtual fitting for me, I highly recommend them, and their putters. My speed control is SO much better since switching to the Si2. It has an insert that makes it feel a lot less hard than most other SeeMores, which was the prerequisite to getting one of their putters. Anyway, if you're actually going to play one that you buy, I recommend their fitting advice, and putter performance!

Great advice and the last piece to the puzzle is practice. I believe engineering and technology can certainly set the conditions for improvement but if one doesn’t put in the work their gains will be marginal and performance inconsistent. Still that’s some great advice Pmookie. Thanks for the heads up.

I tried out the Evnroll ER2 and ER3 and settled on the 3.  Took it to my clubmaker - Top 100 guy - and went through a lengthy process of dialing it in.  Correct that it has less toe hang than the Grace.  I think the Er3 is 30 degrees down and the Grace 18 Blade must be about 75 degrees +/-.  I do suspect that more hang does fit my stroke better.  I did see the new Evnroll models they are releasing and wondered myself whether their new heel shafted mid mallet would be a winner, but got the Grace and just love it to death - looks great and the insert feel so solid.  I don't have exact specs on the Grace, but the major difference is the lie angle and I'm choking down on it a bit to mimic the length I chopped off the ER3.  I had the Evnroll flattened to 67 degrees and I suspect the Grace is a standard 71ish.  I have long arms and shortening and flattening the ER3 works well, but standing a bit more upright with the club head a bit closer feels less "fitted" and more nautral.

I used to dismiss Scotty Cameron and Bettinardi putters as overpriced bag decor, but then I demoed a Scotty (every time I went to the course for an entire month) that worked exceptionally well for me and made the decision to buy it. Couldn't imagine doing anything different now. That club will stay in my bag for a very long time unless my putting takes a considerable nose dive so it's easily worth the investment for me unlike a driver or wedges which are probably the most frequently replaced clubs. That said, MGS has done extensive testing on Evnroll putters and the technology is dead simple/logical. If I had any available to demo, I'd at least consider testing them against my Scotty. Whatever you choose, make sure it's proven to work for you out on the course (if at all possible to test on the course) and disregard anyone else's opinion on the matter. It's your game, play what you want and more importantly, what works!

IMHO and this is bottom line straight at you. Does not matter the brand or cost. Find a putter that feels good and looks good to you. You get those 2 things going then you have confidence. I have seen guys putt good with a $500 Scotty or Betti and I have seen guys putt good with a beat to crap Bulls Eye out of the $5 barrell.
