“We have extended the methodology of our proven, multi-material technology to include new stainless steel inlays for blades as well as aluminum inlays for mid-mallet models,” he explains. “The result is a better look, a better sound, a better feel and a better product.”
The putter maker appears to be particularly enthralled with the new face inlays, which wrap around the sole and are designed to disappear from the player’s view at address (as opposed to a traditional face insert that occupies only a specific center section of the face).
According to Cameron, the Select Newport, Newport 1, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 are next-generation iterations of longtime tour favorites.
As for the Select Newport 2 Notchback, a slightly larger, angular modern blade with a notched flange, it boasts a 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum inlay that is anodized in gunmetal gray and then bonded to the stainless steel body in similar fashion.
Cameron also has crafted a Dual Balance version of this putter for those who prefer a Newport-style head but need maximum stability in their strokes.
The final two pieces of the new release are the Select Newport M1 and Newport M2, which are mid-mallets that utilize that same 6061 aluminum material with Cameron’s face-sole pop-through technology.
That construction concentrates weight on the perimeter in an effort to produce better forgiveness and stability.
Each of the Scotty Cameron Selects features advanced stability weighting with two stainless steel, heel-toe weights; stepless steel shafts; and a refined version of the raw, stainless steel finish the Newports have long possessed.
