Choosing counter balance weight for putter

MilanP99MilanP99 Members Posts: 13
Hi, I have a Taylormade TP Mullen 2 that I want to counter balance and I have a few questions. The putter specs are that it is face balanced, has 3/4 shaft offset, and a 355g head weight. The grip is a Superstroke GT 1.0 that weighs 90 grams. Is it possible to counter balance a putter with a bend shaft and that the head is face balanced? If so, is there a specific weight of the weight plug I should get to counterbalance it correctly or is it just a personal preference?

    There is no reason you couldn't, and the amount of weight is going to be personal preference completely. Assuming you would be using something like Tour Lock weights I would recommend getting the drill bit, a selection of weights to try, and then a really light weight. Drill the hole in the grip, try out a bunch of different weights to see how they feel, and if you hate it then you can at least plug the hole with a really light weight that won't impact your feel. Or just replace the grip.
