CARLSBAD, Calif. (Aug. 9, 2022) – Offering dedicated golfers the same look, feel and performance worldwide tour professionals enjoy, Scotty Cameron introduces his new Special Select Jet Set putters. As the name implies, this limited release, four-model collection appeals to the player looking for a very specific design aesthetic in a high-performance configuration with superior attention to shape, color palette and finish. Inspired by high-end custom car culture, the entire Jet Set presentation is an expression of luxury performance from grip to sole.
Available in golf shops beginning August 19, the Special Select Jet Set Newport, Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus, Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 and Special Select Jet Set Newport 2 Plus feature custom graphics, a Tour Black finish with a dark, tonal color scheme, a specialized Pistolini Plus grip, shaft band and headcover. Displaying the evolution of Scotty’s research in bringing the benefits of higher MOI to blade putter shapes, the line’s “Plus” models introduce slightly wider profiles than standard face-to-flange blade dimensions and push blade performance to new levels.
Precision milled in the United States from a block of 303 stainless steel, each new Limited Release Special Select Jet Set putter incorporates Scotty’s performance balanced weighting technology featuring customizable sole weights, as well as purpose-built aluminum sole plates designed to optimize weight distribution in the wider profile of the Plus models.
“A lot of golfers want to game the same putters the pros play. Our new Special Select Jet Set putters offer a taste of that experience with a few extras that put them in a category of their own. The Tour Black finish is something a lot of people really like, so when I can, I make putters using it combined with dark, smoky accents. The overall tone-on-tone look is inspired by custom car builders, and that’s where the Jet Set name comes from. We’ve offered this concept in years past. This is the next version of Jet Set. Specifically, the ‘Plus’ models that are in between the width of a Newport 2 and a Squareback 2. I developed this “tweener” size working with a few Tour players who wanted something in between the width of a traditional blade and our Squareback flange width. The Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus and Newport 2 Plus offer those desired sizes and happen to be the first we’ve created for everyone. Limited releases like these new Special Select Jet Set models are for those who want a high-performance putter, but also that little extra.”
The Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus and Newport 2 Plus putters are designed and crafted with innovative, slightly wider profiles than standard face-to-flange blade dimensions. This gives players a unique view from address and increases MOI for a confidence-inspiring setup in the familiar Newport and Newport 2 formats. Scotty has been pioneering the development of putter head designs that maximize performance by creating shapes with higher MOI. The “Plus” models are his first offerings of these new sizes that are in between a traditional blade width and wider-flanged models like the Squareback 2.
The Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus and Newport 2 Plus putters extend Scotty Cameron’s proven construction methodology of incorporating complementary materials to achieve desired performance characteristics. Each model employs a precision milled 6061 aircraft grade aluminum sole plate expertly designed into the 303 stainless steel putter head, which allows for proper weight distribution, balance and feel.
Each Special Select Jet Set putter features performance balanced weighting with two customizable heel-toe sole weights. Scotty Cameron extended his philosophy regarding modern weight specifications with the Special Select Jet Set line. Depending on putter head size, either stainless steel or tungsten sole weights provide the ability to configure the desired putter length with the proper head weight. The Special Select Jet Set Newport and Newport 2 each have heavier tungsten sole weights, which bring these smaller, leaner heads up to standard weight while focusing a higher percentage of overall head weight in the heel and toe areas, for increased stability previously unattainable in such a sleek Tour-proven blade. The Special Select Jet Set Newport Plus and Newport 2 Plus models use stainless steel sole weights.
Each Special Select Jet Set putter is accessorized with a new, textured Pistolini Plus grip with a slightly built up lower hand profile and gray accents. This new grip complements an embroidered, custom-designed Special Select Jet Set headcover with superior wear characteristics. A stepless steel shaft includes the line’s Jet Set shaft band.
