If I have a 2 Ball and want to make it more friendly for a arc stroke, can I not just put a little lead tape on the toe side to promote more toe hang?

Surely it isnt this simple and I am missing something

Theoretically yes, but you would need quite a lot of lead tape, and you will be moving the sweet spot from slightly out of the alignment aid.

Don't hold me to truth on this, but I believe you can slightly tip trim the shaft and get some toe hang.

I think that's how ping has a straight and slight arch model of the sigma g tyne and kushin.

I'm pretty sure you can putt any way you want with any putter. Just because a putter is face balanced doesn't mean you HAVE TO putt sbst.

swinging the putter on plane will in itself produce a slight arc (10) on both sides of the ball, then you
can use either a toe down or face balance to keep the face square to the putter path.

Hope this helps

Odyssey now makes a 2-ball putter with slight toe hang. I definitely want to try this out!
