Best putter length for resale value?

Recommended Posts

I just sprung for a Bettinardi Hive putter on the day of release. I know I’m nuts but I got one that suits my stroke and I’m familiar with the face so I’m gonna game it. But ultimately I might end up selling one day so I was wondering what length would be best for resale value. I use 33” putters even though I’m 6’ tall... don’t ask. So I could certainly go with 34” and choke up a touch if I wanted. Anyways, just curious anyways what everyone thought. I’m guessing most might say 35” but who knows.

Get it 33”. Game it. If you need to sell get the next putter with a 34-35” shaft and swap them. 

I don’t have empirical data, but it certainly feels putter length doesn’t hurt resale value much. It’s literally <$10 to extend/cut the length assuming it’s not overly short.

Putter length doesn't matter much. I'm not gonna pass on a putter because it's the wrong length especially if it's rare. 95% of the time you can install a new shaft, cut it or extend it. 


Unless we're talking those odd Scotty tips or flair tips then nothing to worry about.

Head weight matters a lot more than putter length.  It's easy to either install a new shaft, cut the shaft down, or ad a plug.
For me though, it's all about the head weight.  I'm 6', but like a couple other have mentioned here, I use a shorter putter (33.5).  But I also prefer a head weight in the 340g range, so a lot of times the shorter putters have heavier heads than I like.  So I usually end up having to buy a longer putter and either cutting it down or changing the shaft.

For a putter like yours length wouldn't matter to me.


If I was the kind of guy who uses separate Q-tips for each each I would have Bettinardi reshaft. If I was a one Q-tip for ear I'd shorten or extend the putter myself.


Why not just go out and make some putts with it?


I'm hoping that's why you bought it rather than to think about its length when you eventually sell it.
