Iron shaft in a putter?

OknowsOknows Members Posts: 1,157 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

Can I/should I do this? If so, is there a particular raw length and or weight I should be looking for? Needing a .355 black shaft for a Scotty refinish.

    This has been done. KBS Tour X Flex wedge shaft is popular in some builds. Finding a black shaft will limit some options.

    I don't always play minimal, but when I do:

    Start by weight, and do the numbers as Grams pr inch when you compare iron shafts to Putter shafts.
    Using a shaft like DG X100 is not uncommon, and you find it as Black onyx.
    Putter shafts is in general stiffer than most other shafts, so its no reasons to "soft step" unless you want a softer shaft, so using the #9 iron shaft is the norm.

    Weight examples -
    Standard TT putter shaft is 120 grams as stepless at 37" or 3.24 grams pr inch
    Since its 37 as start, its very easy to compare to a #9 iron constant wgt shaft, so if you go DG X100, you add 10 grams

    I've done it, using a project x 7.0. Problem was it felt weird after because I have been so used to the 115-120g variants in most putters. The px shaft was like 135g and I just couldn't square the face up after.

    I've done this in the past with a DG X100 37" (wedge length) shaft when I've needed a .355 tip. Works fine but the step pattern isn't a great look if you have an expensive putter head.

    I heard he used a 3 iron shaft
