Putter weights

Todd S

Hey you tinkers. Has anyone experimented with the weights and their Scotty Cameron putter. I'm considering putting a 40G in the heel and leaving a 10G in the toe to help give it a little more toe swing any thoughts on this?

    I put a 20 in the heel and a 10 in the toe...messed my world up. Pushed everything and in turn started hoodiing my putter to compensate. Didn't last long like that, maybe 2 weeks before I gave up and kept the recommended 15 grams

    I play 35" Newport 2s and I switch out my weights all the time. Go from standard 10g to 15g, all depending on the greens. I have two and one is set up with a 10 and the other with a 15.

    I tried a 25 with 15 on a X5R without an obvious change in the toe hang. A Newport Select with 20 g weights has a mild toe hang. It does make a difference - I've lost a tendency to leave the face open. I was expecting the 10 g difference to make a difference, but it didn't.

    I have the tools and some extra weights from my custom shop orders, but I have never put two different weighing weights in a putter. I would suggest you did not pursue the strategy you mentioned for a few reasons. First, it will really screw up the moment of inertia and will cause you to hit more putts off your line. Second, the arc that the putter is designed to make will be messed up and the overall stroke will not feel as smooth. Lastly, Scotty does not provide 40g weights, so the one that you purchased from ebay is fake and may damage/strip the screwing mechanism within the putter, which basically totals your putter because Scotty simply can't fix it even with a full restoration.

    I suggest that if you are looking to change your putter to fit the arc of your stroke, that you get an entirely different putter that has a better neck for what you are trying to achieve. Scotty offers many different types of necks to allow the putter to achieve different putting arcs. Go on his website and research some of his putters to see what head would be best for you.

    My California Del Mar came with I think 10's in each. I like a heavier putter, so I wasn't totally comfortable with the 10's, so I switched them to 20's and found this just a little too heavy, and just like goldilocks when I settled on the 15's, they were just right.

    Scotty designed the putters to be the same weights...I would not play with this.

    I have read somewhere Scotty saying he does not recommend it. I think it throws off the center of gravity in the putter.

    From several years of experimentation I have proven to myself that the interchangeable weights for Scotty's putters should not be mixed. I have discovered that going up 1 weight set (an additional 5grams) from recommended works well for me, i.e., putting 25g weights in my 33" Futura 5s instead of the normal 20g weights. And that going more than 10g is counterproductive. And I never go less than Cameron's recommended weight. But mixing the weights creates all sorts of issues with moi and cog.
