CHOOSING THE RIGHT PUTTER SHAFT

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OUR UPGRADE SHAFTS

WHY UPGRADE? IT’S ABOUT FEEL AND PERFORMANCE

The first thing you need to know is that all putter shafts flex some amount during the stroke. This adds a variable to the putting stroke we’d rather not have. That’s why stiffer is better with putter shafts; the stiffer a putter shaft, the better it should perform. But there’s an important catch. Historically, golfers don’t put XXX-Stiff shafts in putters because they feel terrible and don’t provide good feedback. It’s hard to know where you’re contacting the ball on the putter face when your putter shaft feels like a tuning fork. And that muddied feedback hurts performance.

The good news is that in recent years, putter shafts have changed for the better. Today’s premium putter shafts use new technologies and constructions to radically increase stiffness without compromising the feedback golfers need to putt their best. We’ve spent a lot of time testing all the various putter shafts on the market, and we’ve narrowed it down to a handful of options that will cover just about anyone’s needs. Each of our offerings is a little different.

Here’s what you need to know about the upgrade shaft options we offer for MEZZ.1 MAX Custom, MEZZ.1 Custom, DF 2.1 Custom, and B.2 Custom.

Standard-Length Putter Shafts

Accra x L.A.B. Golf

  • Upcharge: $100
  • Colors: Black or White
  • Construction: High-Modulus Carbon Fiber
  • Length: 28-38 inches
  • Why You’d Buy It: Extra Stability, Softest Feel

ACCRA has developed a putter shaft specifically designed to enhance the technical attributes of L.A.B. Golf putters, targeting the importance of a consistent impact position utilizing the benefits of the MEZZ.1 XL, MEZZ.1, DF 2.1, and B.2 putter heads. The result is a 140-gram shaft with a stiffer profile utilizing high-modulus materials to maintain feel

Composite materials enable the design team to optimize the torque, balance point, and profile of the shaft to amplify the features of Lie Angle Balance putters. Only graphite materials enable dramatic manipulations of the specifications with a constant focus on feel.

BGT STABILITY TOUR BLACK

  • Upcharge: $275
  • Colors: Black/Black
  • Construction: Carbon Fiber, Aluminum, Stainless Steel
  • Length: 28-38 inches
  • Why You’d Buy It: Extra Stability, Soft Feel

The Breakthrough Golf Technology (BGT) Stability Tour Black is the second generation of the putter shaft that changed, well… everything about putter shafts. 

Here’s the quick-and-dirty lowdown. The BGT Stability Tour Black is a multi-material putter shaft that’s been made radically stiff to eliminate torque on the shaft’s Y-Axis. But it doesn’t feel radically stiff. It feels really sweet. 

You might be thinking, “Wait, I thought L.A.B. Golf putters were torque-free?” And that’s exactly right. Lie Angle Balance does give a putter head zero torque. But there is a small amount of torque in every golf shaft that the BGT Stability Tour will help eliminate from your stroke.

BGT STABILITY TOUR POLAR

  • Upcharge: $275
  • Colors: White/Black
  • Construction: Carbon Fiber, Aluminum, Stainless Steel
  • Length: 28-38 inches

This might be the coldest putter shaft in golf. It’s called the Stability Tour Polar, and like the BGT Stability Tour Black, it’s 13% slimmer than the original BGT Stability Shaft and has 30% more high-modulus carbon fiber to create a softer feel.

Speaking of looks, we’ve fallen in love with the anti-scratch Polar coating on these shafts. It looks amazing in our putters.

And for those of you worried about swing weight, this shaft has you covered. It offers the same swing weight as a standard steel putter shaft.

And just like the other BGT Tour putter shafts, it’s slimmer than the original models and balances like a steel shaft to minimize variables. We LOVE minimizing variables.
