Weights go Newport

  1. Hey all.

    I have a Newport special select. I fitted a super stroke mid 2.0 grip. It has certainly helped and has kept my wrists straight. But I’m finding it to be too light and am leaving a few putts short. It currently has the factory 35g weights in it. Was looking at experimenting with a 40 or 45. Is there an aftermarket weight set or who makes the best ones?

    Stick with Scotty weights. I've bought some aftermarket ones and they are off in weight. I had one that was off by as much as 2 grams. You get what you pay for.

    I purchase original equipment (SC weights) from a local fitter/repair shop who is a Titleist account. They run around $50 a pair for original weights. You can purchase replicas online for less, but I am suspect about purchasing those. I want to ensure that the grooves line up properly and that they seal correctly. If they don't leakage could occur. I also have a Newport 2 special select with a GolfPride SNSR 104 pistol grip. I have played around with this putter using, 10g, 15g, 30gm and 40g weights, with some success. I have since moved on to the newer Newport 2 Super Select Squareback with 10g weights, and a 1.0 Pistol Super Stroke grip. All my putters are 35" and as you get longer the weight is set lighter on a stock putter (SC). The squareback is a heaver putter and keeps the putt on line longer and am too coming up short. I feel that might be due to the time of the year. Our greens are not very consistent along the coast, on Monday they were very fast and by Friday they had slowed down to about a nine. Constant watering and cold weather seems to affect them weekly. This have been a topic of conversation with our group lately. Of course we are a bunch of seniors and some love slower greens. I have been playing around too much during the fall with putters and need to concentrate more on alignment and stroke. The Squareback is a good putter and this indian is going to work thru the season.
  4. I agree with DK, do not get a secondary market set unless you are willing to double check all the details. also, I have heard from others the size is not a perfect match sometimes due to lack of quality control.

    FWIW

    Another option you may want to try is changing the weight in the grip. The newer Superstrokes allow to to change the weight plug in the butt end.

    Cameron, all my weights come from a Titleist/Scotty Cameron account and are genuine SC weights. The SC weights are not cheap, but they are worth the price. Think they run $50 a pair. If you pay $429 for a putter and you are concerned about purchasing inexpensive aftermarket weights, you are cheating yourself and the possibility of ruining you original SC putter.

    Agreed! Good points Chuck!
  8. Hey all. Thanks for all the advice. Really appreciate it!! Sorry for my lack of reply. Life has been hectic.
    Sorry I’m all the way down in New Zealand so was just trying to save a few bucks. But am thinking genuine that’s for sure. I can’t seem to find any weights on the SC store… would there be any geo restrictions or do they not have any available currently.
