Can The Lie and Loft of A Center-Shafted Putter Be Altered?

Hi guys,



Can this be done? I can comprehend how logically this can be done very easily with a plumber’s neck putter or even a putter with the shaft by the heel. But can it be altered on a center-shafted putter without removing the shaft?



Thanks,



Harry

    I think center shafted putters can still be bent a couple degrees each way in terms of lie angle.

    Depends on the brand, some shafts go directly into the head, have to bend shaft, not ideal....other shafts go on over a 'stem', those can be bent.

    Yep. Welded CS necks can also be bent

    If there is a spud then yes.... if the shaft goes directly into the head then not really.

    It’s the Sigma G Kinloch C in which I’m interested in if that centre-shaft can be bent easily or not?



    Thanks,

    I asked PING today about this and they said they would put a max of 4 degrees loft on it. I was hoping for 6 degrees.

    In all likelihood, would most pros and retailers be hesitant to bend a center-shafted putter to 6 degrees of loft?

    Well, a nice help is to buy / lent a CURE (Hybrid / RX) putter with adjustable lie angle (and adjustable weights):



    https://cureputters....s/hybrid-x-2018



    https://cureputters..../rx-series-2017



    ...once you have found the correct lie angle (length and weight distribution) for you, you can either keep the CURE,

    or try to order the putter of your choice with those specs.



    I love the versatility of my RX5 because I can alter my putting technique every day, without making compromises in regard of lie angle, or weight...

    ...however, I have already found a putting technique that works for me - thanks to that adjustability.
