Other than Bobby Grace's website I haven't seen much info about building an arm anchor putter like Matt Kuchar's.  Any thoughts about how you would increase the loft of a belly putter to 6-8 degrees?  Anyone else besides Grace see one of these ready made?  -  Nevin

I took a Belly Spider and basically turned the head open by about 15 and reset the mastic.  By doing so, the shaft angle turned forward and fits to my arm nicely. No more yips and saving about 6 strokes per round as a result. Best scoring move I've ever made!

if i were u id take ur regular putter forward press it and messure how far up your arm u want it to go to get the length right, then find whatever putter u want to use, extend it up, wack a belly grip on it then take it to a clubfitter and get him to fit the loft and lie. or just get the clubfitter to do the whole shabang. hth

I have been talking to Bobby, and I am about to pull the trigger.  Really nice guy that doesn't mind answering even some of the smallest of questions for detail.  Here is his response to my question concerning loft.  


Kevin,
Your loft question is a good one.  Our putters do not have loft, they all have a radial face which works well with the arm putter.  What we do is to set up the putter with the shaft angle in a forward lean.  This does not change the angle of our face.  The radial remains the same but the shaft is completely different.  If you use it as a belly putter it will look about 5 degrees hooked.  


Thanks,
Kevin
