If they were full offset I'd be tempted, but this is essentially a mid-slant design. Also, the head can't have a post either so a lot of heads won't work

Here is  a thread on someone using one to convert a double-bend Ping Nome:

I've bought one to do the exact same thing on my Nome TR but haven't started the conversion yet.

I have one. I think 3" and it's not quite face balanced with my 400g head. Probably need to get 3.5". I will post some pictures when I'm home.

I have a carbon 3.0" on a Maltby PTM2 mallet head.  I have no idea what they were thinking on the PTM3, good god they are ugly.  Very clean look, almost a perfect match on the color of the finish.  The only issue is headweight.  At 35" it's pretty hefty.

Yes.  My hosel wouldn't completely seat so I had to lop off about 1mm from the tip.  But no issues after that.  The hosel is milled, so if there is any fitment issue, it would be with the putter head.  Either it wasn't made correctly or you didn't clean properly after removing it from the old hosel/shaft.

Yes. I was doing it by the eye and it was driving me nuts. It would probably help if you can at least put the head in vice so it doesn't move while you do that.
