Rickie Fowler "tank" style putter

You may or may not have seen it, but I suspect you all have seen it. But Rickie is playing a longer counter balanced and heavily lead taped putter. I am constantly frustrated with putting so I decided to try and build a putter like this. It is not with the same putter head. But it is with a mallet style head. I ordered a fresh putter shaft and 17 inch super stroke XL grip to install. I think I will still have to add an extension to the putter shaft to get it to length. I plan on adding some counter balanced weight to the club somehow. It will probably just be lead tape under the grip to do it on the cheap. Then add some tape to the head. Any way.. Thought I would share the build and results. It will either work or it wont. lol.
