Need some technical advice.

 

Have my eyes on a counter balanced putter on Fleabay.  It has been butt trimmed by 2" without any weight being added to the grip.

 

Obviously, I can have a 2" extension added to restore it near enough.

 

Before I think about that what difference will have the butt trim made.

 

Is it inconsequential ?

 

Will it just feel a bit heavier in the head ?

 

Any SBST stroke is still going to have a very slight arc.  Would the imbalance mean that the face might not come back to square ?

If you want to add thecounterbalance stability to a cut down putter the best way to do this is with tour lock weights,.They come in range from 40 to 60 g.
I have a 40g in grip of my Oddessay #9 and it makes a big difference.
Go and see golfguy who can put in for you.

The first thing I'd do Rob is to see if its the right length for you ...... in order to see if, and how much, you'll need to add to it.

 

Do you know what your ideal length of putter is? and how long is the actual putter you have your eye on?

 

If its a counter balanced putter and it has no weight in the grip, yet its been chopped down, then I assume it probably won't be "counter balanced" at the moment.

 

The only way to work it out is by trial and error once you actually get it in your hands and see how it feels, then go from there, eg, add length and try it, and then add some weight to it.

 

Just my thoughts ...

My putters are all trimmed to 33" and I just got the pureform guys to add a tourlock weight in to counterbalance it when I did my fitting there.  Works a treat.
