Counterbalancing a Ping Vault 2.0 ZB
I got the opportunity to roll a Bettinardi FCB counterbalance... and I gotta say, coolest putter I ever rolled... actually considered running off with it lol.
So, I cannot spend 1400 bucks on one (well I could, but I heard divorces can be costly, so I'm gonna avoid that), I want to create a "poor man's FCB".
Using a Ping Vault 2.0 ZB, I want to get the head to at least 385 grams, get the length to 39-40 inches and utilize a long putter grip (15-17 inches long).
BUT, I have a couple of questions for the brain trust here:
-The Vault 2.0 line has adjustable weights, two parter here:
1: has anyone adjusted their own? I see the kits on ebay.. any experiences?
2: on Pings site, the say that the Tungsten weights are 15 grams heavier than standard... is that for each (total of 30 grams heavier total)?
-Is my logic behind the counterbalancing sound? Based on all of the threads here, it seems like the grip should be between 30 and 35 percent of the headweight... 385 head weight and a 130 gram grip essentially gets me there (look, I'm not a tour pro, close is good enough).
Any insight or experiences that folks can share would be great... Or, if you have a heavy head FCB lying around that you are willing to donate (lol), let me know.
