I have a 34 inch Rife 2 bar tour mallet. I would like to cut it down
to 29/29.5 inches. Can someone please explain the pitfalls.There
are 2 sets of removable weights. I have no idea what the difference
between the 2 is.
Thanks KMC

I cut my putter down to 28 inches and have seen no major issues or have had no problems whatsoever. Putting may be considered my strong suit by some tho.

When I cut my putter down to 28 I added an oversized Winn grip to add a little weight to the club in general, plus I like that style grip for a putter so it's a Winn Winn. (Sorry had to)

My putter does not have adjustable weights so you'll have an advantage with that if you want to increase the weight a little bit.

Sorry but im looking to do the same how do you cut a putter down? Do you actually just take the grip off, cut the putter to desired length, then regrip? I assume you need to add a heavy grip but

Yeah I took the old grip off and cut it down. Then added a grip. I actually didn't put any tape under since the club doesnt undergo any major swing action and won't have any play in the grip. That way if I need to take it off I don't have to cut the grip. This is assuming you don't blow grips on in the first place.

You may need to adjust the lie.
