I’ve rolled both and the lagolf didn’t justify the double the price in my opinion.  My results were similar with both on quintic

I just recently owned a Bettinardi with a LAGP one35. I’ve briefly played around with a stability shaft. It’s hard to separate feel of the shaft from the putter head. I liked the LAGP a lot on long putts. Within 10-15 I can’t imagine it doing much less you really mishit putts badly. 
 

I thought both were great but it’s hard to justify the price of them unless golf is your job. I think cheaper options will eventually make their way out like what KBS is doing.

@Phabs Did you see a difference between the shafts compared to a regular steel shaft?

 

@MattUtah So, no substantial difference between old putters with regular steel vs either of these shafts?

Never tried them with the same head back to back so it’s super hard to tell. You can definitely feel these shafts on long putts. I wouldn’t spend $400 on them.

I agree that it is hard to justify the price tag, especially for the LAGP, but the Stability Tour is about the half the price and I personally like it better. Currently have the Blackout version in a blackout inovai 6.0 and it is great.

I did see an improvement with both the stability and the lagolf during my quintic session.  I ended up going with the stability and now own 6 of their shafts in my putters

Stability Tour for sure. LAGP didnt do anything for me. I've had the Stability Tour on seven putters now and cannot imagine having another steel shaft again. Makes the head feel good through the ball for pace and I'm not usually sold on the Snake Oil but im in on it!

Another vote for the Stability Tour.  Made a massive improvement in consistency in my Bettinardi BB8 (Anser/blade style putter) and also improved my Spider X (toe hang mallet).

What kind of improvements did y’all see? Was it mostly feel?

For me, with the blade putter, the improvement was in stability and consistency.  I make a better stroke with the Stability Tour.  With the mallet, there was also improvement, but there was already more stability in the higher MOI head, so the relative improvement wasn't as great.

LAGP shaft has a 2° torque, which to be honest,is even higher than a KBS ct tour putter shaft(which is steel and only cost 1/10 of a LAGP shaft).

Stability shaft has a 1° torque,which is the lowest in the market, therefore stability shaft should have a bit more influence, but anyway, these factors are pretty minor so it is mostly about the feel of the putter and your mental, so maybe spending a couble hundred bucks might just save the day ┐( ̄ヘ ̄)┌

I have owned two Spider X with Stability Tours. I just finished building a Soto with another. If you have some golf money to spend but nowhere to spend it, it isn’t a bad experiment. My experience is that it makes the putter feel more firm and it is definitely stiffer in flex than a KBS CT. 

 

It is very stable on misshits but don’t expect a drastic improvement in your putting. If you’re patient and you are looking for a new putter, you may find one with a shaft in it already on eBay and save some money that way.
