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 DF3 Custom, MEZZ.1 MAX Custom, MEZZ.1 Custom, and DF 2.1 Custom.

Standard-Length Putter Shafts

L.A.B. Golf By TPT Golf

Upcharge: $399

Colors: Black/White

Construction: Thin-Ply Carbon Fiber

Length: 29-37 inches

Why Choose It: Maximum Stability, Instant Feedback

Quite simply the best putter shaft we’ve ever tested.

L.A.B. Golf by TPT Golf putter shafts are created using an automated manufacturing process that continuously winds a single strip of carbon fiber in such a way that there are no overlaps or seams in the shaft.

The fiber is applied so that every fiber angle is “on-axis,” which means every fiber is working together in harmony. It’s essentially a one-piece construction, and this can be felt by golfers in the way the shaft moves and feels.The first time Adam Scott tried this shaft, he called the feedback “instant.” It’s the first product we’ve tested that delivers both the highest level of consistency and the best feedback we’ve ever experienced.

Upcharge: $100

Colors: Black or White

Construction: High-Modulus Carbon Fiber

Length: 29-38 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.

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.

Why You’d Buy It: Extra Stability, Soft Feel

The Breakthrough Golf Technology (BGT) Stability One Tour Spec is the first one-piece putter shaft from BGT, the company that changed everything about putter shafts.

Here’s the quick-and-dirty lowdown. BGT has always made some of the most consistent shafts in the game, but they’ve used a multi-material, multi-piece construction to do so so its putter shafts can fit on any putter.

With Stability One, the company has brought the same level of stability to a one-piece design that softens up the feel. This shaft doesn’t fit every putter, but luckily it does fit all L.A.B. Golf putters.
