    The stroke lab is more of a weight/tempo thing, while the breakthrough is about torque and the face not twisting.

    Thanks for the info, just got a Toulon palm beach from the garage and the stroke lab, feels good! I thought maybe it was a made for breakthrough!

    Strokelab is more about reducing the swingweight of the putter. Stability shaft is just that, stability, less torque/ twisting. I've had the stability shaft for about 3 months and love it. TXG has a good review on youtube with the stability shaft.

    I was actually thinking of going the opposite way. I have no problems with shorter putts, but struggle with feel on long lag putts. I'm thinking about finding the most flexible shaft I can with a thin grip for better distance control. Should be an interesting experiment. I just need to find a heavy, super soft steel shaft.

    installed a stability shaft with my newport2 and with no practice round, rolled some of the nicest putts yesterday.

    I don't know the science behind it or care for it; the line just stays longer and i was burning edgers from far away; those 5-7 footers felt more confident and it seem like i can't miss from that range which has always been a momentum killer for me during middle of the rounds where I needed those putts the most; i really recommend this thing.

    6 rounds in with this putter shaft.
    I had this installed in my Evnroll ER5 after reading some reviews and hearing about it here.
    I am not sure if it is pure voodoo/luck or a combination of the two but i am holing more 7-10 foot putts than ever before. On longer putts, i am also finding the consistency of the roll much better. I am just hoping that the honeymoon period lasts!

    what is the weight of this shaft compared to a standard putter shaft? It looks bulky.

    Thanx for the feedback. I will go get fitted @ Evnroll next week. I will most likely order a putter with SS on. Someone called Evnroll demonstration a "Pony" show. Getting an Evnroll putter with SS would be "double pony" show. Soon I will get to see if the putter will be either "pony" or "stallion"

    this independent test seals the deal.

    The stroke lab is more of a weight/tempo thing, while the breakthrough is about torque and the face not twisting.

    The ball is long gone off the face for any twisting to have an effect on the direction.

    I wish they could release a version without the hideous graphics. By any chance has anyone painted those shafts?

    Had the Stability installed in my Jailbird for 5 rounds now. I will echo the sentiments above. The feeling with putts inside 10' is automatic. The balls stays online at a greater frequency and i feel like i cant miss. The lack of torque and twisting is highly noticeable, which feels odd to say but you never realize how much a regular putter shaft twists until you feel one that doesnt.

    The putter also feels like all the weight is in the bottom 1/3 of the putter which makes short putts stupid easy. I wish i had taken a swingweight before and after to know if that part is in my head. All in all i am happy with the $175 i spent on this shaft. If i make 10 more putts a year with it, its worth it to me.

    Highly recommend this shaft.

    Decided to splurge and upgrade to a TaylorMade Spider X this year (they are pricey, but I get a great discount through a family member) and am holing putts within 10' like I never have. I did remove the stock 2g head weights and replace them with 6g versions, along with switching to a real light P2 grip so the putter feels nice and head heavy. It also has a very stiff KBS CT Tour putter shaft which helps immensely. Getting fit for the right putter does the trick - tried the same model putter with the Stability shaft and felt absolutely no difference. That shaft was sold off, the KBS shaft was re-installed, and my friend was also perfectly happy.

    This has also been around for several years and is about 1/4 price with the same general idea:

    Anybody try the armlock version of this shaft? Can't seem to find someone who has tried it.

    It's $225 on the BGT website. I two Stability Shafts in my possession now, but I will probably get rid of one of them soon.

    I do wonder how much BGT performs better than KBS CT.

    I know someone who has it, but he's still in the initial stages of testing. I will get back to you when he gets more of an impression.
