Putter Offest Question

Recommended Posts

Why are all (or almost all.  there may be some that I'm unaware of) zero-offest putters center or near center shafted?  I know Ian of TXG has said some very critical things about center shafted putters due to the amount of twisting that happens on an off center strike.  Supposedly, putters are more stable on off center strikes when the connection point is near the heel vs near the center.  Wouldn't it be possible to have a shaft similar to a single or double bend, but without the offset?  This would allow the putters to maintain the balance and zero offset of being center or near center shafted, but have the shaft connect to the putter head near the heel, which adds stability on off center strikes.  This seems like a best of both worlds solution.

 

Maybe @SeeMore Putters can chime in on this?

Edel will build and sell you a heel-shafted double bend shaft putter with no offset.  I tried it in a blade when I got fit and it's an incredibly clean look (though I went with a different setup because of my aim).

I'm not sure what you're getting at because there are plenty of heel shafted, zero offset putters on the market. Bettinardi have a bunch, TaylorMade spider single bend, shoot any custom putter makers that offers spud necks can too.

All of the Bettinardi single bends that I have seen have offset, I’m not sure what model you’re referring to.  The Spider single bends have a full shaft of offset.  The bend and the angle that the shaft enters the head creates the offset.  The Edel putters mentioned above were the first zero offset heel shafted putters I’ve ever heard of.  Look at the difference in how the shaft is forward in the Bettinardi and in line with the leading edge on the Edel.

Queen B 6 is very minimal, maybe a quarter but that's not much but depends on your eye. The Inovai 7.0 I believe is the same.

 

If you're looking for this specific setup you may have to go custom if there is nothing your like. It's not uncommon to do this because OEM's can't make a specific setup for everyone.
