I just got an awesome 350g Circle T scotty but need to cut it down an inch. Maybe a half an inch. Will the balance of the putter be effected by doing this? Is counterbalancing necessary? Let me know what you all think.



Thanks!!

    If you make it shorter it will change the swing weight and make it "feel" lighter. 350g is pretty heavy so you'd probably be OK at 34"/350g but at 33" it might start to need more head weight to feel anywhere close to the same as it did before it was cut.



    Just saw you said maybe a half inch, for a half inch it'd probably be something you could notice if you really tried but it's not going to be much...

    If you counterbalance it will increase the overall weight, but reduce the swingweight further.
