I don't think it is a gimmick. I define a gimmick as something that doesn't work. This seems to work.

Did you get it on your cameron at the custom shop? :D

That is why I put works" for me". ;)

Anyway, it looks very similar to my Scotty Studio Style Newport. Sounds like the price point may not be in line with demand but it would be interesting to demo one.

Wow....this thread brings back memories.

 

A Slotline putter was my first "real" fancy putter. Actually, a set of Slotline Inertial E-Max clubs was my first new real set. Wow....long time ago.

 

Here's a pic of the putter and E-Max clubs:

Ok...can't find a pic of the irons, but they had the same gold weight type ports on the heel and toe of the irons. They looked kinda like Ping Eye2 (like everything else in the 80's), but had a black backing with the gold heel/toe weights.

 

There were no gold weights on that putter. Those were yellow plastic covers that covered an empty space. If you wanted to, you could pry the covers off, put lead tape inside the chamber and cover it again, so it was an adjustable putter without being obvious. That feature wasn't advertised, I think, and might have been an accident of design. Given enough time and bag chatter, the covers had a tendency to fall off.

Interesting to hear about the covers. Could be compared to the removable weights of today... I never did like slabbing gobs and gobs of lead tape on it.

Wow...if that's true not only was I sold a bill of goods (LOL), but how on Earth did a company not realize to put additional heel/toe weighting in those cavities?

That is a good idea, even if on one meant it.
