  1. We've been counter balancing putters since 2000.

    Counter balancing IMO helps override the fast twitch muscles in the hands up to the forearms.

    We used and still do use an insert weight but the superstroke had made it easy to add the weight.

    There are others and as long as you are comfortable with the feel and style of the grip it aint all bad.

  2. Sanding or prepping after a cut, particularly when cutting by hand or machine is a great idea. I do a quick end prep on the sander to remove rough edges. The glue thing is new to me and may be overkill but hey!,  it certainly works and if you want to do that then by all means enjoy the process.

  3. I've had the seven, marksman and 2 ball in the shop. First impression is the detail delivered in each of the putters. The added texture of the lines in the darker part of the putter and the red accent of the Aluminum all capped with the stroke lab have made these a very popular putter just from an aesthetics point of view..

    I have found the "S" neck option to be the better selection for most, not all, but most. IF you are the arc putter looking for more help in the aiming department then you might want to check them out.  The newer insert gives the putter a better more solid feel and apparently a sound preferred on tour. Whatever that means.

    The contrasting colors, the shapes for alignment (2 balls, lrg lines and overall head shape) the stroke lab, the insert and then the choice of a mid size pistol and jumbo style non taper grip helps makes putts After a proper fitting of course. 

    I said had as I only have the 2 ball left.

  5. Shaft breakage just above the tip is typically a result of hitting near the hosel or hitting the ground just before impact.

    A second possible cause is when bring the club around it hits your back. This typically results in a break towards the middle but can be closer to the head.


  6. The USGA has a procedure in which to measure club length

    USGA procedure

    However it is a go- no go gauge, meaning it is only testing for max allowable length of the club.

    I did a video a year ago on length

    what is length

    There gobs (that's a technical term) of gadgets out there to measure length. There are also a ton of considerations to measuring length so long as its less than 48" and longer the 18"  you are all good.  Which brings into question just how is it really done?

    While trying to stay as close to the directive in the procedure I would consider a machine/rule/gadget in that the club lays horizontally. I would also measure to the crown of the grip. That's the beginning of the angle of cap, IMO it eliminates the bowing of the cap if put on too far. Secondly and as we all know that iron lie angles change (unless single clubs are in the bag). So you have a choice. Measure ALL your clubs at 60 deg i.e. the Mitchell ruler or allow for a change in the lie angle, this will include the changes in driver lie angles. with an adjustable plate for the club to sole against.  Golf Mechanix, Golf works etc.

    Keeping in mind its what fits your own personal logic make up so long as you don't go too long or too short.

  7. I would not get to infatuated with 40T as the defining characteristic of the golf shaft. Chances are,  the fitter will not know that parameter of the shaft unless it is part of the marketing for the shaft.

    There are plenty of other characteristics that will impact your choice. When the fitter does his/her job you will be evaluated and given choices associated with the evaluation. Give them a try, you may find that a non 40T shaft works better.

    But, do tell the fitter your interests in that type of shaft, they might have the exact thing you are looking for
