Scotty Cameron Futura 6M Putter Review

50 Words or Less

The Scotty Cameron Futura 6M putter is miles from traditional.  Four interchangeable weights.  Very good forgiveness.

Introduction

I know that I’m deeply in the minority here, but I look forward to Scotty Camern’s Futura releases far more than his Anser rehashes.  We all know that he can put a new wrinkle into a classic.  I’m much more interested in his new designs, and the Futura 6M is as bold as he’s been in a while.

Looks

The Scotty Cameron Futura 6M is miles from conventional.  From the large size to the cut-out section in the middle to the weight ports at the far edges, nothing here will appeal to traditionalists.  However, if you’re looking for something different, this will be right up your alley.

One thing that I like about the Futura 6M is the variety of alignment devices.  The top rail has a sight line, and there are white-on-black sight lines along the flange.  Additionally, the silver “prongs” are akin to the Odyssey #7 and frame the ball nicely at address.

Sound & Feel

The Futura 6M has the same construction as most of Scotty Cameron’s recent putters: an aluminum face and sole with a stainless steel body.  This mix of materials produces a wide variety of sounds across the different models.  In this case, the sound tends towards the tinny noise I found in the Futura 5MB.  The Futura 6M is not quite as high pitched, but the sound is still unpleasant to my ear.  Feedback is minimal due to the high MOI design.

Performance

The most intriguing performance element in the Scotty Cameron Futura 6M is the set of four interchangeable weights.  With one pair near the face and another at the far edge of the flange, there are myriad possibilities for changing the weight and feel of the putter.  Getting a selection of weights direct from Titleist is neither easy nor cheap, but a multitude of options exist on eBay and putter forums.

At standard lengths, the Futura 6M is a very stable putter with excellent forgiveness.  The amount of weight in the far corners allows the putter to remain steady through impact, even on mishits.  If you want even more weight, Scotty Cameron offers the Futura 6M Dual Balance.  This version measures 38″ and comes with a counter balanced grip.

Conclusion

Credit to Scotty Cameron for delivering something interesting in the Futura 6M putter.  Though it would be better if the weights were more readily accessible to consumers, the level of adustability here is still an intriguing feature.

  1. New design? It’s basically an Odyssey 7 with weights on the back like a Taylormade spider. Cameron makes nice putters but they’re basically higher priced knock-offs.

      Mitchell,

      I guess the question is, how distinct does a design have to be to be called “new” or “unique”? I’m no Cameron fanboy – read my history of reviews to see that – but I think this design has some interesting aspects to it.

      Thanks for your opinions.

      Best,

      Matt

  2. A nice combination of a Callaway with bug eyes from TM. Great idea Scotty, take things from 2 companies and combine them and call it yours. Have a safe trip to the Bank.
