After my putting performance today idk how I can pull the trigger on this. Maybe this putter means less three putts and better long putt consistency??

That's been true for me so far. Distance consistency has really improved. Even today when I didn't warm up at all and the greens were firm, wet and pretty fast. 

I'm finding less "horrible" first putts and lots of tap-ins for 2-putts.

Full disclosure, I did nuke one from the fringe that went a good 9 feet past the pin and also left my 42-foot first putt on No. 6 at least 8 feet short (I hit the the second putt, thankfully). So there is still plenty of room for user error!

I'm excited to get this out on my home course next spring. I'm much more familiar with those greens and can't wait to see some improvement there because I was awful this season with distance control.

How did you decide on what shaft to use? The up charge sucks because I think the stability shaft has neat tech.

Not a question for me but I thought I would chime in.  My original DF was purchased off E bay after finding out my lie angle. Putter was a little longer than I wanted, but it was used and I wanted a cheap way to try one out. Loved it so I bought a brand new one in the length I wanted.  I was scared to get the stability shaft because I was afraid it would change the feel of the putter that worked so well.   The KBS is a solid shaft for this putter. Don’t be afraid of that shaft. Full disclosure, I did order a new one today with the stability shaft.

I’m not much of a DIY builder although that would save $100. Hoping I can talk Matt into waiving that since the stability shaft is marked down if you go directly to BGTs site.

Because I was curious if it would work better. 😆 

Hi.  My name is Joe and I am a club ho.  I think that’s what you are supposed to say when you introduce yourself at the meetings 

I figured if I didn’t like it, then I would switch out the shaft and sell the stability shaft. 
 

Total gamble.   If I hadn’t previously used the KBS shaft with success, then I would have went with the stability shaft last time as well.

I wanted the softest feel possible. I basically asked Matt what he thought would achieve that and went with it. I originally thought it would be the LAGP, but Matt warned me the LAGP is very grip end heavy and would make the head feel lighter. I didn't want that (also why I wanted the lighter Press II grip).

That 32" 70 lie angle putter you have would actually be a better fit for me than the one I have lol.

My question is if it worked so well, why get one with the stability shaft?

It can be a pain to install the Stability shaft. Matt was explaining that at some point this year, they switched from using an interference fit to a more standard way of installing the shaft (don't remember what the newer way was). Anyway, my shaft was one of the models with the interference fit, so Matt said its not recommended that you pull the shaft, and also LAB won't pull the shaft for you either. Normally, I would then have just cut the existing shaft and installed it into the Stability shaft "tube". That is a pretty standard approach where you cut the of the existing putter shaft about 8 inches above the head and are left with a shaft "stub" that you install into the Stability tube. But of course this wasn't possible because LAB heavily tips that KBS shaft so 8 inches above the tip its like 0.400" in diameter. 

So I ended up going against the recommendation and pulled the shaft from the head. It was unbelievably hard to remove the shaft. I heated the hell out of that thing with a butane torch and then spent like 5 minutes using all the strength in my body to twist the shaft out. If you have never pulled a shaft with an interference fit, its absolutely nothing like pulling a normal shaft that easily pulls out of a hosel with almost no strength. After that, you have to epoxy and then hammer the shaft back in.

34.5 / 71* / Stability Tour / Press II

Since I didn't have a 34" putter to record myself with, I basically simulated it by having half an inch of my top hand off of the grip (my ER5 measured 33.5" from center to end of grip). Matt said I can go 34 or 34.5 and it isn't going to have any significant effect, but he would rather have players choke down a little than not have enough room for their hands. Interestingly, the lie angle is 4* difference vs. my current putter -- excited to see the results.

I'm glad you and @dlow206 got them or I probably never would've pulled the trigger. I have a hard time believing YouTube guys aren't shills, so when normal folks spend their money on things like this, and have positive results, it makes it easier.

At this point if I can't putt with a $600 putter laced with tech, it's just not something I'm going to ever be really good at 😂

I'm still struggling a bit with distance control (blowing past the hole). I made a 30 foot putt today to save a par, but if the ball didn't hit the pin dead center, that ball would have gone at least 10 feet past.

I purchased a DF putter indirectly through a friend, so I don’t know the lie angle and the putter is probably a little long for me.  Although I was putting it pretty well.  Hopefully that’s not a gigantic mistake.  Is there a way to shorten the putter at all, ideally without taking off the grip and taking off part of the shaft?  And how do I check the lie angle of the putter, vs. what I might get from sending LAB a video of my swing?  Thanks!

You should be able to measure the lie angle of the putter with a protractor. As far as your true lie angle when putting....take a regular putter and set up as you normally would and film down the line. You can measure your lie angle on the video as well....and there is your comparison. 
 

As far as shortening the putter....I am not completely sure you can do that without changing the way the putter works....because all the heads are a different weight. That is probably a better question for the folks at LAB golf. They are always very helpful with any questions I have had in the past.

they can reshaft and rebalance it for you for $100 i believe. just send in a video for a fitting and measure things on your current LAB and let them know and see if they need to make adjustments
