My STX Putter

I love my STX putter. It is a Green Plus VIII. I bought it a year and a half ago after dropping my old putter into a lake. I only paid $80 for it, and that was the retail price. However, it seems it was made in China, and it soon showed shabby construction. Very soon the leather grip began to peel and eventually the outside cover peeled off. In addition the chrome on the shaft is peeling off to the point it looks as though it's twenty years old.

 

Of course, I put a new grip on it, but can't do much with the shaft.

 

I still love the putter because of its weight and feel so would not part with it for anything. But it's disappointing to have to live with such shoddy workmanship.

STX has representatives on MyGolfSpy, I believe the username is simply "STX". I've had numerous STX putters and none had a leather grip, is it possible it was regripped and possibly reshafted too? Either way, grips aren't made to last forever, and shafts can be replaced.
