JR,

I'm not a Cameron fan, but that was a stunning collection. Do you ever miss it? Or too many memories of other things to miss it?

I miss having the collection I had. There were some beautiful putter and most of them were in the same condition that they were when they were first made. The early Cameron stuff, the retail putters and the limited editions (1 of 100 or 200) were great putters, much different than todays Cameron retail putters.

JR...that is an awesome collection!!  You're a very lucky guy, I fear that if I ever get the money to start collecting high scale, expensive Camerons...I'd never be able to part ways with them!  Especially the BBC, Copper Classic, or the Sterling Tei3...those are so sexy...I'm looking for a newport head thats copper (not a Cameron) but in my price range I can't really afford one at the moment.  Tuition for Law School sucks!

John....just stuck my head in here again.   Everytime I paged down, I I changed my mind as to which one I would pick if I could only have one.  Thanks for sharing.

Are those G. Loomis shafts in some of those classics/copper anser head style putters? If so, whats your thoughts on them?

Yes, some of the early special Cameron's had G. Loomis shafts. Beautiful shafts and pretty rare. I never putted with any of the putters that had that shaft. I no longer have any of the putters or other items shown in this thread.

One of the most beautiful Cameron collections I have ever seen.  It is unfortunate, but I understand :-)

I owned an S. Cameron Tour Classic 1 with a G Loomis Graphite X Flex 9 Iron shaft (stock) It was supposedly made for Davis Love III but never confirmed. Felt odd in my opinion, shaft actually felt hard which I didnt expect. Maybe too stiff?

Brother any single one of those would have, for me, been a complete collection.  That is one incredible time capsule of SC history.

Most of my putters are Anser style putters because that is the head style that I use. I have posted different threads with current putters but I really do need to start a Collection thread in the Member's Collection section.

Please don't.  :-[  I'm having a hard enough time restraining myself from buying putters every week....I really don't need the additional temptation. ;)

The Loomis Shafts were some of my favorites when I played a lot. They were "heavy" graphite.  They were meant to replicate a Dynamic Gold, frequency matched- with a similar weight to steel--and to reduce Vibration.  Davis Love's brother was a distributor when they came out...about 1993 or so. I bought a couple back then...they weren't cheap...maybe 80 a shaft.

The Tip end is VERY thick.

JR - Looking back, do you have any regrets of getting in, or any you wished you might have kept while getting out?

No regrets either getting involved with Cameron putters and there really are none that I wish I still had. There were some beautiful putters made with the Cameron name on them, very classy and very classic.

As for why I no longer have Cameron putters in my collection, the simple explanation is I decided I no longer wanted to collect items or spend my money on items that are associated with Cameron. Too many things I just do not like about him and how he conducts business treats people. To each there own.

I can see why you gave up collecting Scotty's jr. Must have been very frustrating trying to locate the missing pieces made between 1962 and 1986.
