Yes, that is correct regarding the counterweight and grip and how it could be made legal.  The reason we haven't changed it is because it is a Training putter, and the components for counterweight, grip and shaft are same with our Orange Whip swing trainer.
The Putter head is actually made of Aluminum and powder coated Orange.   This makes it look like a plastic or rubber material.  Because of the design (convex face), if a golfer connects in the center of face, the putter feels more solid than any flat face putter available.      The biggest drawback we have heard from customers regarding the Putting Wand is the look, some people cannot get past that.  But, those who have and use it regularly, swear by the benefits to...
The reason the Putting Wand is illegal has nothing to do with the Convex face, that is perfectly legal.  The illegal aspect is the round counterbalance on the top of grip, this creates an irregular shaped grip, therefore non-conforming.  I've sent it to the USGA and got the OK, except for the grip shape issue.
CFRitchie, Thank you for the note and I'm glad you are getting back into the game!   Since your #1 issue is the 'drop inside' on the the downswing, leading to high and right.   I would encourage the Orange Whip Mid-size, it is shorter than the Orange Whip Trainer (Driver length) and will allow you to swing much more on plane to encourage a better path.  The shorter length makes it easier to swing left, and keep you in balance.  Also, the Orange Whip Mid-size is perfect...
Andy,   I would recommend the Orange Whip Mid-Size (formally called Golden) for your needs.   Since your focus is irons and wedges, you can accommodate both needs with the Mid-size.   If you hold it at full length, it will be like your long irons.  If you choke down on the grip, it will be more like a short iron.   https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16179674/Orange%20Whip%20Product%20Info%202014/OW%20Brochures%202014/OW%20Poster%20Brochure_ForWebView%20(1).pdf   I...
  Very good question about the left foot and if it should remain planted or if it can be lifted.?   As you noticed, in the Orange Whip videos I tend to raise my left foot quite a bit, but when I hit a driver I keep the left foot fairly well planted.   The reason I lift the left foot during the Orange Whip drills is to maximize the stretch I receive while swinging the Orange Whip.   Also, by exaggerating my footwork, I am actually improving my balance and coordination.  ...
Thank you for the question regarding the Orange Whip Trainer (longer version).   The quick answer is Yes, your wife could easily grip down a few inches and it would replicate the same sensation as the Orange Whip Golden.  So, sharing the Orange Whip Trainer would work well.   The Orange Whip Trainer and the Golden are made with the same components, but the Golden is 4 inches shorter than the Trainer.   Since it is shorter, the Golden seems easier to manage while using it,...

Beach, In regards to the Orange Whip and the Orange Peel, the Whip was designed to synchronize your arms and body by swinging back and forth in repetition. Due to the unique design of flexible shaft and weighting system, if you swing Whip correctly, you will feel balanced and powerful. Incorrectly, and you will feel awkward and off balance. The combined use of both products encourages a balanced, powerful swing that is easy to repeat.
