Odyssey claims its new Stroke Lab shaft will improve your putting stroke. Who will be putting that claim to the test?
Join me in congratulating our reviewers!
TESTERS WANTED (4)
So you think the importance of shaft design is only important to drivers. Well the engineers at Odyssey Golf among some of the best and brightest minds in the business want to show you otherwise. For years counterbalancing has been a big buzz word in the world of putter shafts. Well the new Stroke Lab putters by Odyssey Golf aren't just counterbalanced, they take weight shifting to a whole new level or should I say end.
As in redistributing 40 percent of the weight from the middle of the shaft into the butt and head end of the shaft. The results show that you will make a much more consistent stroke with Stroke Lab than with the standard putter shaft.
Don't believe it? We're going to give you...well four of you a chance to prove it to yourself and the rest of the forum.

Great forum, great community, and I am sure one of the knowledgeable members has come across this question before (or, can point me in the right direction). I have used the search bar some to pin point this topic to some effect, but haven't come across the answer that satisfies my curiosity. I already know and understand a dynamic fitting and static fitting work best for shaft fitting and it's hard to beat a good (and patient) fitter.
My question pertains to online iron shaft fitting/recommendations from most of the shaft manufacturers and/or online fitting services: How relevant is a question regarding iron distance (say, 6i carry) when your current 6i loft and the set you are interested in purchasing is different? I could ,theoretically, hit my 6i 170 yards using a 26* loft but only hit my buddies 6i 155 yards using 29*...these are just relative numbers to express a questionable point... with all other variables being the same (relatively speaking) but loft.
My interpretation of the line of questions for iron shaft recommendation is that it is generating results based on flight and dispersion preferences along with swing speed/power/carry distance. However, if my current 6i is 26* and is allowing me to move the ball 170yds down the fairway, how good is the online fitting tool going to be if the new set I am interested in has a more traditional loft to it? Am I totally off base in this line of thinking? Are the manufacturers shaft recommendations useless?
Again, I apologize if this has already been discussed ad nauseam. Happy golfing!
Matt Saternus (used to be with MGS) of PluggedInGolf.com posted an interesting article...
"Do wedge shafts matter?"
He tested in a similar style to MGS using a variety of recreational players and identical wedge heads with different shafts, then swapping them among the players and having them hit different short game shots. Results are measured by Trackman at a Club Champion.
The questions he was looking to "Confirm" or "Bust" include...
Myth #1 – A wedge shaft can create more spin
Myth #2 – A wedge shaft can change launch angle
Myth #3 – A wedge shaft can improve accuracy
Myth #4 – A wedge shaft can improve consistency
Myth #5 – The same shaft will fit all your wedges
Interesting and informative article .. worth a look!
Like new Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei Orange CK 50 driver shaft stiff flex. Hit maybe 30-40 times. Pulled from a Mizuno GT180. Still has mizuno quick switch adapter and mizuno grip. $125 plus shipping. Sorry if you saw this post earlier with no content, there was a glitch in the app.
Looking to buy a driver length Project X HZRDUS T1100 6.5 75gram. Needs to be in good condition and I don't care if the adapter isn't Cobra. I can change it myself later if needed. Just looking for a decent deal
