What do you guys think of this? Worth trying it or not? We are thinking about getting them for the shop.

I am going to say no. 2 feet to 2 meters. Well if something is 2 feet away I can use this handy thing called my arm to reach and grab it.

Golden retreivers are like $20-$30 this thing is $80 and what if helps you grab stuff 3 - 10 feet away from you.

No one would buy that. Way too expensive imo. Although it would be a good idea in that cactus pic, as I once had that exact same lie at Barnett in Florida and poked myself in the eye trying to reach and get it.

I would agree with the previous posts...I like the idea...but I can engineer my own for 10 bucks

If it extended to 10 meters so I could use it to determine if it's outside the circle. Then maybe.
NO!......Welp!?

I've got the Sceptor and use it quite often. I practice putting quite a bit so its nice to use so I don't have to bend over for every miss.

The recent addition of the rake/hook on the end has been huge.
I've found it quite useful this spring on some of the courses that have standing water. Its nice not having to hunt around for a stick, take my shoes off or actually go in the water with the shoes on. I can just extend the Sceptor and rake the disc in.

It also came in quite handy at the memorial this year. I saved quite a few of my discs and other peoples as well. You can't really hop in the water during a tournament, or hunt for a long stick. I

In about 3 months of using the sceptor on the course I've saved $100 + in discs (without sacrificing time or wet feet). I will admit that most of my Sceptor use does go on during putting sessions. Bending over a ton of times is a problem no more. It also comes in handy during field sessions.

HOW old are You?

Common Sense, my man....and less drinking.


I agree with Lindsley though, its expensive. We dont have customers that practice putting enough to need an $80 "Wow Im lazy" tool.

It was when I first started playing, id never played with cacti as rough before, and I really wanted my CE Teebird back.

And wouldn't you have to bend down to pick up the tool after you've thrown your round of discs? I don't assume you hold onto it while practicing your putts...

Maybe the $95 deluxe version has a kickstand.

I love to see well engineered stuff like this. The bulb suction thing is what makes it so cool, but also likely what drove up the cost.

you've got to be Chucking kidding me. If you're having to pick up a shit load of discs when you're practice putting, move closer. :lol:
