looks sweet

 

(though I'm gonna go out on a limb here and maybe insert foot in mouth later, but it does look like quite a few putters I've seen before just from an over-all feel - but I guess it's all in the details right?)

I stand by my "Who is going to buy a $300 Odyssey?" comment, though I guess if they're making MORE "pro-types" it's because someone is buying them. Crazy to me.

+1....I feel that way about any putter...I have never been able to justify the price differential between them. There's certain models like the one shown, that I'm more effective with. But I haven't had to pay more than $100-$110 to find one that works. Almost all the manufacturers make the same style head and the main difference is marketing. Sure, some feel a little better than others but my best putting hasn't had a direct cost/reduced putts ratio.

 

Some will note the milled heads, inserts etc and they have a genuine point, but when I found my current Odyssey, I didn't even look at the price ($100), I just loved the way it felt and bought it...Was the same way with the last Ping I had ($75). I've used the Scotty Cameron's and high end Pings, but my $100 putter has given me the best results. If someone finds a $400 putter that makes them feel confident in their stroke, then more power to them. Marketing is a powerful thing and golf is probably the funniest example of it (I think that's a given for all of us). We all know a guy or six that pulls out the $400 tour driver but hasn't hit a ball over 220 yards in years...Or the 20 handicap that plays blades..and I might smile inwardly but hey, I'm right there. I play golf because I love the game and it makes me feel good. If playing equipment that's totally unnecessary for my game enhances my enjoyment, then what the heck?

 

If the premium putter cover gives you a charge and the wife doesn't kill you, then why not?

I'm not that guy, but I Am the President of the Justification Foundation, a charitable organization that finds good excuses for virtually all golf and electronic purchases.

Excuse the ramble.

Bwahahha! Giant thumbs up to you good sir.

 

For the putter it's self, keep the same theme but make is a center shafted mallet and then we'll talk.

 

MSaternus: You'd be suprised around here then. It's not just Odyssey but Cameron's, Gamblers, Redwoods, etc. Most local golf stores sell more $250 and up putters then $150 a down (on something like a 55/45 split to the more expensive ones). But then people have more money then brains out here.

I laught at your claims to fight a zombie apocalypse when most of you can't stand up to a Spider

Really? That's really unbelievable, you obviously have a very different population than my store. We have people whining every day about $120 putters and very very few $300 putters going out the door.

Price is one thing and it is a valid complaint.

 

However for a putter (probably moreso than any other club in the bag) it's a pride thing. It's a 'how much do you desire this short stick' thing.

 

I have 2 putters that I rotate - Odyssey White Ice #1; Scotty Studio Design #5. Both perform well for me and provided I warm-up on the putting green I notice no effect on my game by switching.

 

I desire however - in fact you could say that I would do a lot of bad things to get one - a brand new, Scotty California with that honey-coated finished in Del Mar. That would never leave my bag. I would look down upon it with delight, I would treasure it and nurture it and so help the dog if it even so much as thought about raising its leg against it.

 

For a putter it isn't a matter of price or a matter of how it performs versus other models. It's about how it stirs your loins. More than a club.

Driver: Mizuno JPX-800 10.5 degree; stiff shaft; Golf Pride Multi-Compound

3 Wood: Taylormade R9, stiff shaft (set to NU)

Hybrid: Ping G15 17 degree; stiff graphite shaft

Irons: Mizuno JPX-800; Project X 5.5; Golf Pride Multi-Compound

Wedges: Cleveland CG12 52 (smoked finish), 56 (oilcan finish) & 60 degree (chrome finish)

Putter: Odyssey White Ice No. 1; Scotty Cameron Studio Design No. 5

 

I also play a set of Titleist 1980s Tour Forged Irons with regular shaft. These are excellent for practice, as is the Titliest PT 20 degree 5 wood that accompanies them.

Whats actually wrong with taking the original Anser design and making it better? I feel the different materials and different bumper grinds and using different necks and welded hosels all come into play. Some look like crap milled like a block with all square angles off the Top line and the bumpers and such. I have no issues with improvement over original design. Especially one that was originally a casted bronze and lite as a feather. JMO.
