DIY Black Putter Shaft (or other colors)

Recommended Posts

Was there any show on the putter shaft when the tubing comes off? ie. If I don't like the look on my putter (which I doubt), would the shaft be damaged after I took the tubing off? Looking to do this to a new to me Scotty Select Golo 5. Think it will look awesome with the black head, but don't want to ruin the putter if I don't like it or mess up. Thanks!

There is no damage to the shaft from this, there's nothing sticky in the tubing, it just shrinks to fit and is held by the friction of it shrinking.  

I guess I should clarify that I've removed the tubing from 2 shafts I've done.  Both were used for a season and neither had any issues or damage.

🚨 Zombie Thread Alert 🚨

Finally got this Bobby Grace NYC Tour dialed and decided to roll out the tuxedo treatment today in honor of its newly minted gamer status.


Trimmed 1.5” to play at 32”, threaded a 50 gram counter plug into the Traxion Tour 2.0 tech port and dressed the shaft in black heat shrink. Feels like this wand may have some magic. Thanks again for starting this thread @hckymeyer!

Decided to give this a whirl.  Needed to take about an inch off the length of this Spider OS and figured "what the heck".

Easy to do and I have to say I like the stealth look that resulted.

Great idea. I have used heat shrink tubing for various other projects but never considered it for this! The tread has been going for several years now, does anyone have any comments to share on the longevity of the shrink wrap tubing? How well is it holding up? Any issues with it?

Also, in the UK it seems difficult to get it without the printing 


and 16mm seems elusive too. . .


Anyone in the UK found a good source for this?
