Stability putter shafts - hot or not?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Have been thinking about installing the BTG Stability shaft in my Odyssey O works Black Versa 7.  Not sure if the newer tour version will fit since the putter I have has a double bend shaft in it.

It will fit. Essentially they cut the double bend and insert it into the end of the stability shaft.

Have gotten a few more rounds in with the stability shaft and some comparison practice against some of my other putters. Feel: This is obviously very subjective. I don’t feel much when it comes

Alright, I got mine back today and if anything, it looks freaking amazing! I’m going to practice tomorrow and will be playing Ko’Olina Sunday so I’ll have more real world feedback soon. Also,

Putter arrived a couple of hours ago and since I am working from home I quickly opened the package and rolled some putts on the carpet. I like the looks and feel of the putter, just not sure about t

Can you put one in your ER2.2 and let me know how you like it/get along with it? Thanks!

You going to fund the purchase 🙂  I've compared the original stability to stock in a Bettinardi putter and probably wouldn't install in my own putter.

I was hoping it might be in the back of your mind and that I could just nudge you over the edge without opening my wallet, haha!

I have toyed with the idea and it has been in the back of my mind,  but the likelyhood of my actually purchasing is pretty much zero unless the price gets under $100.

Installed the Stability Tour shaft on my Odyssey O-works Black Versa 7 tonight.  Put on a new Super Stroke Traxion Tour 3.0 grip as well.  Man does it look awesome.  Checked the swingweight on the putter before making any changes and was surprised to discover it was at E -8.  After putting on the new grip I put in a 75 gram Counter Core weight and that brought the swing weight down to D-9.  Eager to try it out tomorrow.

My golfing buddies have been telling me that I’m crazy to make any changes to my putter because I’ve been putting very well lately.  That is just more motivation for me to put the time in to dial everything in and practice so that I can get even better.

Once I’ve got some experience with the new shaft I will post a follow up.

Practiced a little with the putter before my round today.  They top dressed the greens at my course yesterday with sand and then rolled them.  They were a bit inconsistent.  Had three birdies and one 3 putt bogey plus a couple of nice par saves with the putter today.

Several observations: The stiffness of the shaft is very apparent.  Feels very stable and no wobble.  The swingweight change due to the 75 gram Counter Core weight is also apparent.  The head feels lighter and you can feel the weight in your hands more.  I found my putter stroke was more consistent with less jerkiness at the start of the swing.  On the few long putts, those over 20 feet, the results were by and large better than usual even with the inconsistent green speeds.

I did miss a few putts too.  You still have to read the putt and get the speed right. It’s too early to say how much the changes have helped, but I would say for sure it didn’t hurt my putting.

My buddies were really “raining on my parade” before the round.  They got quieter after I took their money on the side bets and birdie pool.

Has anyone been fit with them directly? They offer putter fittings & adjustments with Quintic & include a Stability shaft as part of the price. Would be curious to hear anyones experience with them.

Txg says that you do not have to be fit for the stability shaft,  it is more about if you like the feel.   That is different than being fit for the putter.  It was quickly brought up in the last txg live

Should have clarified, the fitting is with Breakthrough Golf in Texas who created the stability shaft. Would be interested to hear anyone's experience  with them.

@Brandon M posted in his WITB that he was fitted at BGT. Post over there or IM him to post his experience here

I have a BTG technologies stability shaft. I’ve had it for a couple months now and I can definitely see a difference in my distance control. I’ve always struggled really bad with lag putting, but as of late, it’s gotten a lot better. Plus they look awesome!!!!

Hot or not? All I can say is I walked out of the house yesterday without my putter (yeah, go ahead and razz me, I deserve it). One my playing partners had a Stroke Labs Seven in the back of his car, let me use it on the back 9.

I was impressed. I missed three 3-4 footers, two for birdies , but also drained several 6-8ft par putts. Felt great, the look sitting by the ball gave confidence.

Guess what I’m shopping for today?

Just so you are aware,  the stroke lab shaft and the stability shaft are two different things.
