Scotty Cameron Design - Newport 2.5 Detour

From Scotty Cameron's website ...
The new Scotty Cameron Detour provides design elements and visual indicators to help create the proper putting path. It features a unique, arched body and sightline that show the player the shape of the optimum putting stroke. An angle milled body with a high toe complements the design for perfect balance and flowing aesthetics.
The multi-material design and construction of the Detour creates a soft, solid feel with an extremely high moment of inertia. The heavy, front stainless steel weighting bar and rear backweight triangulate weighting at the corners to increase MOI and provide perfect ball performance at impact. Milled pockets lighten the mid-section of the aluminum body for superior stability and deeper CG.

ps. The photos below are just another example of the capability and flexibility of the Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 mounted on a Nikon D80. Basically, I could go WIDE, go CLOSE, and create a soft Bokeh, all with one lens.

Design: Arched design elements encourage the player to swing the putter on the proper path for perfect ball performance.
Construction: T-6 6061 Aircraft Aluminum Body, 303 Stainless Steel Backweight, 303 Stainless Steel Weighting bar, T-6 6061 Aluminum Toe Cap
Models: Detour (single bend shaft), or Detour 2 (straight shaft)
Headcover: Accident Orange (without pivot tool)

Beautifully constructed, both in terms of visuals as well as materials and finishing.

As in many other Scotty Cameron putters, the headcovers are desirably collectable, and an integral part of the "Scotty" experience! This one is called "Accident Orange"!

I like the Orange grip too :-)

A couple more shots :-)
