Let's face it, we're all tiring of shiny chrome plated putter shafts. Coating them can work for a while, but it eventually wears. Graphite may be an option, but it's sometimes heavier than a hollow steel shaft.
Hence, we are currently developing a light weight twill weave carbon fiber hollow putter shaft. Currently awaiting approval from the USGA, this shaft will offer the following advantages.
We have had our first application rejected, but know how to meet their requirements to pass in future. Some small changes to tooling and parts will soon be on offer.
1. Light weight: A 37" steel putter shaft typically weighs 120g. This new hollow twill CF shaft will weigh 60g for the same length. Golfers seeking the effect of counterbalancing may find the shaft weight reduction to be an advantage.
2. Naturally black: No more chrome glare or coatings that chip. This shaft will be stealthy while also offering the twill weave aesthetic often associated with motorsports.
3. Improved feel: Current thin-walled steel putter shafts in some stances resonate to the golfer's hands. This twill weave shaft should reduce that and add comfort because of the laminate properties.
Stay tuned for approval, and don't hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
