I have tried posting this as I am in the UK but not having any joy.

    Bastain Milled and Slighter would probably be your best bets if you’re looking for a new neck.

    I’m actually considering doing a zero offset flow neck Scotty 5w myself. I detest single bend shafts but I like the head quite a bit.



    Kyle at Bastain milled does these conversions all the time. He as an Instagram account.

    Slighter has retired, Bastain does great work. I had him convert a plumbers to a long neck plumbers and it was amzing, just don't expect a quick turn around on craftsmanship.
  • I am glad I stumbled upon this thread. I have an original Mike Method putter that I love the feel and everything about. I just cannot stand a plumbers neck and was ready to sell. If there is an option for a slant or flow neck I would keep. I sent Kyle a note to check in this type of job. I am hoping it can be done and at a reasonable price.

    That Depends on what “reasonable” means to you. The conversion will cost FAR more than that Nike putter is currently worth.

    This is 100% correct. I spent more than what I paid for my X5 to add the flow neck...but I love the putter so it was worth it to me.

    Peter at the PutterRoom in the UK is fantastic! He does all kinds of modifications at a very reasonable cost and the quality is fantastic! He’s modified two putters for me and I have nothing but praise for him.

    We’ll I do like the putter but not that much to spend a few hundred on.
