Pulling a Stability off a shaft

Just had an interesting question from a guy asking if I you can pull a stability shaft off the steel shaft and refit to another putter. I know the manufacturer doesn’t recommend pulling the stability off due to multilayers of material but it would be great to be able to transfer it from
One club to another especially at that price.

    It's actually really easy if you take your time. The easiest way I've done it is to heat up a metal rod until it's red hot and stick it up inside the steel tip. Let it sit inside for a bit and then you can usually pull off the steel shaft from the Graphite tube. If it won't budge then repeat a few times until it's free.

    I have a rod suitable so I was thinking that just didn’t want to cook the graphite

    Possibly another option would be to just heat the existing metal shaft that is still attached to the head, heat well below the stability adapter and let the heat transfer up the shaft. Wouldnt really matter if you damage/discolor the shaft "stem" as it would need pulled from the head and a new steel shaft installed anyhow to use the existing putter.

    No telling if that would alter the performance though?
