Rusty putter shaft, can I re-shaft with a dynamic Gold S300 shaft?

14 posts in this topic

As the title says, I have an Odyssey putter with a rusty shaft can I re-shaft with a dynamic Gold S300 shaft?

Are putter shafts intrinsically different to iron shafts?

I have quite a few unused irons with good shafts + I have a new putter grip.

Thanks for any advice...

Most putters have shafts made especially for putters. The GolfWorks catalog only offers seven versions; True Temper offers an Odyssey replacement shaft.

I would suggest you take your putter to a good club repair shop. For some putter models, the head and shaft undergo unusual assembly processes. Many club shops send these model putters back to factory for repairs, to avoid damaging the putter.

I say give it a shot if the bore size is the same and it fits. Free is free!

Different iron shafts (as in designated club #) will have a different feel due to different head weight that the shaft was designed for. Nothing wrong with experimenting. I've found certain 8 iron shafts to be to my liking.

Years ago I remember Lee Trevino saying if he came to a tournament with very fast greens he would use a putter with a stiff shaft...

Oh really? All bended shafts? Not possible? This is just a few of the straight shafted putters that I own. You're welcome. I know alot of folks play iron shafts in their putters. Some know and some don't. :beer:

But that's not what you said. You were giving advice about something you, obviously, didn't know the 1st thing about. So in the future.........it's all good. Please carry on.

I had an odyessy that I put several iron shafts on as I wanted to try different degrees of bends on. They all worked/installed very well and fun to do. The only problem is: I STILL CAN'T PUTT!!!!!

most putter hosels are .370 you want to make sure you have about 8in. of parallel tip section to start with if your using a S300U (so if your pulling it out of a tapered hosel .355 or the shaft band doesn't say S300U I would advice against installing it in your parallel hosel putter ) if you have a head weight of 350gr at 35in. long. If your head weight is 375'ish tip trim another inch and if the head weight is 325'ish start with 9in. parallel tip section. too stiff looses feel and too much flex make the ball 'jump' on longer putts with a 1.1-1.3 tempo stroke. most importantly when tip trimming make sure your not using a tapered .355 S300. lol

    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      When you post a video showing your progress only to get ripped apart for other parts of your swing that are not a priority it makes you want to never post again.   I'm very disappointed in the behavior of a lot of the instructors on here.   lets review the timeline.  First I posted a video of me working on my shallowing swing.  I never stated it was perfect.  I get a response saying my backswing is wrong. I follow up asking why it matters if I hit other positions correctly. i get told "because" I follow up asking why it matters if my backswing is off if my downswing hits key checkpoints. I get told I am not hitting the spots.  I ask why not stating my angles are where my coach outlined them to be. I get shown my angles are wrong.  I counter stating they are still shallow and match that of pros.   I get told angles don't matter. (Even though I was wrong before because my angles were off.) This goes ignored and I get told my backswing is wrong. I detail my Evolvr coach doesn't have my backswing as a priority because he liked my positions at A4 and 5.  These get ignored.  I point out my friend has the same shallow to slightly steep and is told his swing is perfect and his Evolr coach says no changes are needed in his swing.  It's great as is.  I follow up why his shallow to steep is fine and mine isn't.  These comments get ignored.    Yet I am the one with the ego problem...
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I have one that I think maybe could top them all . . . I got a year membership with full golf privileges at a private club in exchange for an old sofa that I put on Craigslist and didn't even think would sell. I got an email - "Is the sofa still available - would you consider trade for golf membership" - totally out of the blue.    edit-  the guy had recently won it in a raffle of some sort.
