I switched to a speeder putter shaft that I tipped and installed and I've putted better than ever. Really like the firm flex of the shaft while being light. Usually light putter shafts have a lot of flex or they are stiff and heavy.

I bet if this said Scotty Cameron on it, it would be sold out through preorders.

And if they offered limited edition colors, they’d sell out and end up on eBay for double the price.

Stamp it with a Circle T, and it would have a cult following with its own subforum on the other site for collectors...

Interesting concept.  Would love to see a "strokes gained" analysis on this.  Hard to fathom it would be significantly different than a standard shaft.  To the tour pro, it may provide results over time. To the average weekend golfer, I'm not so sure.

The Tour Pro might not see as the same benefit as an amateur.  Their strokes are a lot more consistent.  But the person that has a stoke that is not as consistent will see more consistent strikes since a regular putter shaft has so much instability.

According to today's latest video Ian at TXG put this shaft on his putter and he really likes it. It sounds like they will be doing a video on it in the near future. Personally I would like to give one a go.

At this point in golfing I will try anything that helps me hole more putts.  I went for a putter fitting thinking that would help, NOPE!!! Just a crappy putter, the putter I had was perfect for me and the fitter said no need to buy anything else or change anything.  So hell maybe a fresh fancy shaft will do the trick.

This right here is why I would never get one because I would catch Sh*t every time I missed a putt.  Whether it actually improved my putting or not.   But the guys I play with are a bunch of di*ks

Those graphs purporting to show “wobble” are: 1) misrepresented nonsense, and 2) pointless even if correct, because the big “wobble” they supposedly show occurs after impact – and what the club face does after the ball leaves the club face does not affect the ball!

Talking with putter makers over the years, the difference in a steel shaft makes a difference with repsect to feel and distance control. With putterheads going from 320g less than 20 yrs ago to today's 350g to 400g, that's a lot of weight to control. And let's face it, most of us don't know the strength/thickness or quality of the typical putter shaft.

I'd be open to leaming more about this shaft. I will look at the data and keep an open mind, and let's hope the price comes down.
