Bargain or rip off


Recommended Posts

I really need a new putter and found a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 special for £160. It's 2016 model but never used (present when starting but never continued). Does it look legit and is a 2016 model (I think it 2016 from research) with it, even if it's new

I replied in your Buy, Sell, Trade post that I'd be VERY skeptical.  There is a Scotty Facebook group that reviews these sorts of things, if you're a FB user.

"Where'd it go?"  "Right in the Lumberyard..."

I"m not an expert either, but if you compare the sole plate, it appears that the sole plates are different. The authentic appears to be laid on top of the putter head (you can see through the two indentations), but it appears the one in your picture looks like the indentations are pressed into the metal.

Additionally, the authentic Scotty "Select Mallet 2" inscription differs from the "M2 Select Newport".

I would agree with this as well.   If you go through the various years in the Cameron Putter archive,  the sole plate engraving is wrong.

However,  if you do some image searches you will find others with that same engraving.  You would need serial number and to call titleist to see if it is authentic since the pictures aren't really good enough to evaluate.

I agree, a mate bought one cheap and the first thing we noticed was the quality of the cover. And that one looks the same as his.

Callaway Epic Flash 9 Degree

Callaway Big Bertha Fusion 3 wood 15 Degree

Callaway Epic Hybrid 18 Degree

Callaway Steelhead Pro 4-AW Irons

Cleveland 54 Degree Wedge Steel Shaft

Recoil Graphite Shafts in all Callaway Clubs

Callaway Big Bertha Putter - for when it is wet

La Jolla Putter with Flat Car Grip.

Preferred ball - Currently Costco Kirkland Performance 3 Piece but Seed 001 is preferred.

I think all Scotty's are ripoffs. I would just buy a Ping or Evnroll. 

Scotty's are one of the most highly produced forgeries in the underground club market of knockoffs. 

Dhgate is a website that had lots of them for around that price. 

If I was buying a Scotty used then I would get it from a reputable source and not eBay:

Globalgolf.com

Golfpreowned.com

2ndswing.com

Rockbottomgolf.Com

 

Or just get a Ping or Evnroll to avoid all that forgeries nonsense.

Golf is simple - people are complicated.
