Stability putter shafts - hot or not?

Recommended Posts

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



Silly me! Thanks

A lot of people confuse them because they look similar.  Stroke lab is mostly about weight distribution;  it took weight out of the shaft and added the weight to the head and grip ends.   the stability shaft is designed to reduce shaft deflection that occurs with heavier heads.

Well thanks to all you buggers in this thread, you just convinced me to buy one.

 

At least I'll look cool three putting.

I feel that my Stabilty shaft is havier than a Stroke Lab, I feel that I can control my distance and feel.

Regular Stability is 125 gr,  Stability tour is 110.   True Temper steel shafts are in the 115-127gr range.  Stroke lab is 75gr.     It is definitely heavier.

I reached-out to the HQ of Stability shafts, but didn’t know it was them. I was looking for a facility where they use the same technology for putter fitting that TXG does, and found a place near Dallas. I called and asked about fittings. They told me about how they work, the cost, and that it’s for the Stability shaft, but they would do fittings cheaper if I weren’t interested in buying the shaft. I’ve reached-out twice since to try and book a fitting not buying the shaft and have not had a reply.... I get it, but seems crappy.

Is anyone able to explain why it's okay that there is the steel part that the fibreglass sleeve goes over? I would have thought that there was a glaring weak spot for the torque.

 

Really would have thought it to be a fibreglass rod also, just an adapter to the .355 and .370 shafts.

You would have to ask the manufacturer those questions.

My guess would be that for the small amount of shaft being used the torque and bend isn’t significant. Epoxy has a pretty high shear point so it wouldn’t twist either.

Also, I have yet to see anyone make a “fiberglass” double bend shaft. Not all shafts are straight.

To me. You either need to be full graphite or steel. Having some kind of combination in my mind defeats the purpose. Composite/graphite will always be more pure and have greater potential. Steel is a dirty, and hard to control material.

I felt the same, then I tried the Callaway stroke lab and it changed my mind. It's hard to put into words the feeling, I'll just say that it's different than anything I've ever putted with.

Also, before anyone quotes me, I know the stroke labs and BGT shafts aren't the same.

After Tuesday, I'll know how both of them feel 😉

Just won my bids last night on EBay for a Toulon Las Vegas double bend with the Stroke Lab shaft and an Odyssey Milled Metal X #7 with the steel shaft.  Within a week I should be able to give some feedback on the difference between the feel and performance of the BGT Stability Tour shaft with the O works Black #7 head and the new Toulon Las Vegas head with Stroke Lab Shaft compared to the Milled Metal X #7 with the steel shaft.

Well, I have had the Stability Tour putter shaft in play for about two weeks now.  Yesterday’ round according to Arccos Caddie contained 5 personal bests.  My lowest all time Handicap, 7 ups & downs, 9 one putts, Tied for fewest 3 putts with 0, Fewest putts per round with 27.

Not the best driving and approach shot day, but the putter saved my bacon!  The new Stability shaft and other putter modifications seem to be helping.

Glad to hear it - I had similar experience the first few rounds with my stroke lab testing last year.  Would be interested to hear your results after a couple months as this could be more of a honeymoon period.  At least it was with mine.

The rational side in me says how could a shaft in a club that is swung so slowly have any impact whatsoever.

The tinkerer in me says, sounds awesome, i should buy it.

Taking my ER5B on the course today for the first time. i'll be posting my thoughts on the stability shaft as I get more rounds with it. Maybe do an unofficial review or something? I have a decent amount of stats saved up in Arccos to compare the data to. I was a big fan of the Odyssey stroke lab shaft, but the inserts in those putters are hot trash. The only insert I've ever really had success with is the Spider X, but even then.. I prefer a milled face.
