Conclusion: Received a 'used' Circa '62 #1 for Christmas--WOW!! I never would have paid that much for a putter, however, from the very beginning it proved to be worth every dollar! The balance and feel were a dramatic improvement over my Ping-which I cannot say anything ill about. It is just that my Scotty is that much better. The ball just roll cleaner and easier. It has the stitched leather grip-a bit funky in the beginning, however I am now in love with it!!
Conclusion: This is a putter that has not been that popular and I have bought and sold several at between $75 and 110. A sales sample is worth a bit more to collectors but stll does not rank very high,, It putts very well however.
Conclusion: I picked up a like new Circa 62 #5 Sales Sample about a month ago for $100. It has the Circa 62 cover and divot tool but the cover is not original. I have yet to find another with a a price on it (other than ebay) and am wondering if I picked up a good purchase or not. Anyone know the worth of a Circa 62 #5 Sales Sample?
Conclusion: I have had my scottie 62 #2 for a couple years now. By far the best putter I have ever had. I was very good with my ping anser (20 years) from 12 feet in, but the sweat spot was so small if I missed it by 1/8" on long putts It came up short. I switched to a Odyssey and was a great lag putter but was not near as good form 12 feet. It seemed to be too light. I have the best of both worlds with my #2. I can lag very well and am deadly from 12 feet in.
Conclusion: I have a Circa 62 model no 2. I paid Â£175 for it. After one month of oiling it after every round as required it started to rust and has continued to rust. I now need to scrape the rust off before every round with a hard groove cleaner. It was a complete waste of money in my eyes as very few other putters on the market require such attention or are prone to such high levels of rust.
Conclusion: Been playing this game since a baby. Retired now and still play to a 6. I've tossed around the "Scotty Xerox" moniker a bit. Finally bought a #3 and I love it. Being an old fart I like the classic lines and FEEL. I still hate alignment marks, I turn my ball to the bank side even so the simple dot is a plus for me. I didn't like the Baby "T" at first and thought the lie was a little flatter than I liked and the head was too light.
