Converting double bend to plumbers neck - any brands that this will work for? Who has done this?


Recommended Posts

Looking for examples of mallet heads that will take an adapter to convert into a plumbers or flow neck. Seems like Odyssey and Scotty both use a "post" type connector to the shaft, while others use taper shafts or have them at an angle.

Has anyone done this before and what head worked for it?https://www.golfworks.com/the-golfworks-putter-hosels/p/gw0138/

Came out pretty good! Got it done at my local Golf Mart with a KBS CT White shaft I had lying around so colors are mismatched. Kinda looks cool! Sets up and rolls wayyy better for me than the double bend. Nice little converter!

That looks so crispy. What did the 2.5” plumbers neck do the to the toe hang? I’m exploring doing a similar conversion - double bend to plumbers neck - to a Sub70 TAIII wide blade. Ideally I want slight toe hang, and trying to determine what length plumbers neck to try.

Just broke down and ordered a neck to try and make work on my Catalina. Will report back. 

Love it! I’ve been messing around with a handful of different wide blades after gaming a NP2 for my entire life. Absolutely loving the clean sight line look on this Sub70 wide blade, but struggling with the visual of the double bend shaft.

 

Where did you buy the neck you are going to pop on the Catalina? I have seen the knuckle adapter on ebay and the full hosel on golfworks (that looks more like a slant neck though). Was originally thinking the knuckle/cut shaft was the way to go, but really liking the pic of the Mizuno in CP4L’s post above if I can get the right level of toe hang on it.

Went with the 2.5” golfworks hosel. I probably added it to my cart 50 times since last spring and finally decided it was time to pull the trigger.

Finally got get finished up, a little sloppier on the epoxy than I normally am due to some bad lighting but she turned out nice. Toe hang at a 45* angle and rolls the ball nicely!

I would have trimmed the insert of that neck to sit flush with the putter head. The concept is there much cheaper option then to send it off

You’re spot on there. I was so pumped to do it that the thought of that didn’t even occur to me until the next day. Will likely pull it to trim and reinstall when I get the time.

Bumping old thread, did you ever mod your Sub70?

That one has to have neck cut off and a new one welded as it’s a single bend neck
