Recently made my own ....not quite the same as the .355" preprioritory Scotty shafts , that have parallel tip section of .355" about 3" long....but I was able to make a ,355 tip, single bend shaft u

Getting a hold of .355 single bends is about as difficult as catching a fart in the wind.

I've never heard of that. What putter requires a taper tip single bend?

 

Pretty much all Scotty Cameron mallets are .355 tip single or double bend shafts. The newer Selects are single bends.

I’ve got one from an X5 in my basement that I yanked when I made it a flow neck. It played 34” I think.

 

Pm me if that’s what you need.

Chip Usher has them in his eBay store from time to time. But I agree, way too hard to find.

 

Even the one Chip has listed are .355 double bend...not single. I was looking for a specific shaft for a JAT I had refinished and sent Chip a message through his eBay store, he was able to find one for me even though he didn't have it listed. Might be worth a shot to see if he's got any. His name on there is Chipaputt if you need it.

I reached out to Chip...he doesn’t have any.

Damn. That guy has everything. Why are they so hard to find??? I guess Scotty wants your $45 plus tax and shipping...

Recently made my own ....not quite the same as the .355" preprioritory Scotty shafts ,

that have parallel tip section of .355" about 3" long....but I was able to make a ,355 tip,

single bend shaft using an old Rifle Precision stepless wedge shaft...this is the how...

 

Found some brass beads with an OD of 19/64" and strung them on a wire leader made

for fishing . This was to make a mandrel to keep the shaft from collapsing during bending.

Made a bending jig with peg board , pegs , and thread spools. Then with a MAP gas torch,

heated and bent the shaft to match the bend in the shaft I was replacing. Removed mandrel. The heating left some discoloration, so for cosmetic reasons I used heat shrink

tube , to complete my homemade .355" tip , single bend , black shaft ......
