  • The Scotty was too long!

    So, I got my g/f a customized putter in this thread:

    http://www.torontogolfnuts.com/showthread.php?t=8141&

    Turns out, I omitted a minor fact which turned out to be a major mistake. Well, she's about 5' 4" and totally forgot to cut it down when it was restored. Now, it's easy to say...why not just cut it down? Well, it's too painful to cut off the grip when you see it going for this on ebay:

    So, anyways, what's a guy to do? Send in another of course and not forget all those "minor" details. Here is the end result:





    What do you guys/girls think?

    when she plays it, just remind her that shes not standing upright enough

      but still, its a sweet looking putter. If I were her, I'd never play it, it would be hanging on a wall somewhere with the headcover beside it.

              Any chance you selling it Ted?

              I am pretty confident in slipping off that grip for you. so you can adjust the length and put it back without damage to the grip.

              PM me, no charge for you

                Hi westbeach

                Saving the grip for reuse and shortening the putter is a simple operation, so I would definitly take Henry up on his free offer. The only thing that will not look 'standard' is the SC shaft band will now be closer to the grip or partially covered by the grip depending on how many inches the putter shaft needs shortened.

                  Just curious...is this using the air compressor method? I'm worried about the seams on the wrap coming apart.

                    The air compressor method on these grips can be risky, but if Henry is being recommended by Harry then I'd say you are safe.

                    Pulling these Scotty grips using the old method isn't that difficult, it just takes so damn long as you really have to be careful.

                      That is one beeeeeeeeeautiful putter. You better hope she doesn't start scoring less puts than you per round.

                          Hi Scott

                          Personally I would try to first remove the WINN grip gently using the GS 'flat rod grip removal tool', using generous amounts of HF-100 grip solvent. I would not use a solvent that could easily attack the sticky underside of a WINN grip, which might comprimise the integrity of the grip. Furthermore, the grip can be ruined quite quickly if it is 'blown off' without using the appropriate safety tube, to minimize grip expansion or too high an air pressure psi. I would say the 'flat rod' method is the safest way to keep it looking new once reinstalled. You also have to masage it in the right direction so you do not begin to unravel the wrap. Oh so many things to consider ...

                          My recommendation of going to Henry was based on him offering to do it for FREE. I'm sure his work is world-class but I have never seen it first-hand.

                          Here is another option for you to consider ...
                          I need a longer SC putter shaft and you need yours shortened.
                          Let me pull the shaft and install a shorter one
                          I will do the grip change too. The price is right > FREE.
                          westbeach, I bet you never thought of that option

                          Wanted: Scotty Cameron steel putter shaft with Shaft Band intact.
                          It doesn't need a grip on as I have a brand new S Cameron grip to put on.
                          It must be ~32 inches long which will make a 35" long Newport as standard.
                          I'm looking for NEW to ALMOST NEW condition.

                            No dice...The shaft is over the hosel and you'll need a in-hosel shaft.
