I would say whatever feels comfortable.  My son had a flatso when he was 10 just because he liked it.

Both of my kids play tournament golf and they both play superstroke grips.   My son is a 10 year old golfer that loves the feel of the 1.0 flatso.  He is playing it on his Cameron and my daughter who is 7 is playing the Ultra Slim 1.0 in her two ball.    They both started with regular thin junior grips and they struggled on the greens.  They are putting much better now since the change but that goes hand and hand with confidence.  Critical piece on the greens.

No, I have not tried that with my two kids.  The weight of the grip with their shorter putters was enough at this time.

I would say.  If you even go to Titleist's website they don't recommend Scotty Cameron putters for juniors at all, and they make them.  The number one reason is weight and when you cut them down they are too heavy.

I currently play the GTR Tour 1.0 and my son really likes the feel but I already told him his current Flatso must wear out before replacing.   I have my own problems with golf ho'ing and dont need him doing that at his age.    He will have a garage full to pick from once he grows into the equipment   :taunt:

I may be wrong here but us kids putter have a head weight of 340 based on a 2014 file with technical specs. But adult head weight for putters is around that same weight. (ping for example have some that are 340).  So how does cutting it down make it too heavy? Not a golf technical expert so, my apolgies if this is a stupid question.

I was reading off Titleist Website.  It makes the swing weight heavier and you do have to swing the putter.  One inch of shaft taken off equals 6 swing weight points.

I would think you need to be careful about modifying expensive putters like scotty cameron's.  To me the reason you pay so much or a higher end putter is balance and swing weight is very exact. If you start messing with the shaft your throw everything off and it it will feel different.

I think if you custom order a putter you are not going to have an issue but the real question is why would you order such an expensive putter for a junior and then cut the shaft. There are far cheaper alternatives and they make it easier to customize the club because there made with wider tolerances. Generally speaking though I do not like modifying putters because it can make them feel a lot different.

I'm not, all I did was add a superstroke to a us kids putter. Nothing more. Just always seeking information for future purposes.

I didn't mean changing grip so much that shouldn't do much to anything but I had people tell me I should cutting a putter shaft down or adding counter weights. For the most part you can order a putter to the correct length pretty easy.

The one thing I have noticed about US kids putters is they are really good for helping kids learn direction of the putter at least it does for my younger daughter.

I am 16 years old and my hands measure 8.25 inches from base to tip of middle finger. ( men's med/cadet large) and I cannot use above a 1.0. I just can't see why to use a grip that you can't even wrap your fingers around like the 5.0

You have the magnitude correct, but the direction wrong. 1" shorter is 6 SW points LIGHTER.
