This is going to sound crazy, but I got a breakthrough golf stability shaft and it has revolutionized my putting.  I have it in an evnroll er1.2

Can you tell me more about the shaft? Thanks

I have tried 340, 350 and my stroke feels really unstable with those. At least with the heavy putter I don’t have to take as long of a back stroke. With the light ones I can see the outer head change paths several times.

What are you using for a grip (mostly interested in the grip weight)?   How the grip/butt weight is balanced with the head weight can potentially have a big impact on path control.

Distance control has been a issue I've dealt with in the past 2-3 years because I feared 3 putting. As a result, I was lagging EVERTYTHING and very rarely making much outside of 10' because everything was dying at or just before the hole. Now, I play a little less break and hit putts much firmer, with an aggressiveness to make them(barring an extremely long one that's not likely).

My mantra to begin a round is "get the ball past the hole" and I play this aggressive style until I blow one by 5+ feet. At least this way I have the opportunity to make more on the first putt and can back off, conservatively, if I indeed find myself with the first 3-putt of the day. For the record, the amount of 1 putts this ideology has scored me outweighs the number of three putts it's caused.

Aiming issues.

I always use a line on my ball...then only look at hole to gauge distance.  I mark and realign the ball on  putts of 18", especially if $ is involved.
Since using this method over the last 10 yrs putting is now the strength of my game.

1. If it’s just distance control then go to a lighter putter.  
2. I’d recommend getting fitted.  Most stock putters don’t have enough loft on them.  Going to 5 or 6 degrees of loft could be a game changer if you aren’t getting a good roll.  Use a ball with a thick line on it and hit putts seeing if the ball rolls end over end.
3. Putting tempo is a huge deal.  Pros have a 2:1 ratio of backstroke to through stroke.  Get blast golf (it will also tell you if you have consistent rotation in your stroke for a square face)
4. Learn about fall lines.  When you aim you should hit your putt to the point where the ball starts decelerating and falling.  
5. The putting books by Dave Stockton Jr and Stan Utley would be valuable resources

I have a Byron Morgan Channel Island I'm going to list soon. It's like a tour GOLO in terms of quality. I prefer the blade, but some people like the Golo style!

When I was fitted, best distance control came from a heavier putter wirh more counterweight to give the putter balance. Fitter said it is not optimal to feel like the putter is heavy. You want the weight to be there but not necessarily feel it for best control.

I had been using 340-350g putters with standard weight grips. My fit was a 375 gram wide blade head wirh a 100 gram grip plus a 30 gram weight under my lower hand. Not only that, but only 1 degree of loft. I am not a pendulum putter. I feel like it is too rigid and mechanical. I have short backstroke and a little longer on the follow through. This weight arrangement has been excellent. My distance control near or long is so much better.

I have used it for 3 rounds and not one three putt.    It might be in my head but it has made my evnroll feel godly.    Basically it is just a super stiff graphite shaft that is suppose to deliver the putter head more consistently.
