Difference in head weight from belly putter to regular putter?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been considering trying out a belly putter. Used one at Golfsmith the other day waiting for the Wife to finish shopping and liked it. The one I tried was an Odyssey Sabertooth. But the shaft was to long for me, it was a 43" and that hit me more in the sternum than the belly. I want to give it a try, but don't want to spend the big bucks till I know if I like it or not.
 
That brought me to do some research here and on the Internet. I found the belly putt device here:
 
 
It allows me to use my current putter, which is an Odyssey 3ball SRT, and I can adjust the length until I get it were I like it. I like the adjustability of it, and the fact that I can take it off and put a plug into the grip if I decide I don't like it. If I decide that I do like it, I will more than likely get the Odyssey 2 ball or Sabertooth belly putters.
 
While doing my research, I found that the belly putter heads weigh more than a regular putter head. Just holding the sabertooth belly putter and regular sabertooth putter I could feel a slight difference. Does anyone know roughly how much more the belly putter heads weigh?. Luckily there are cutouts in the 3balls head, so I can install the weight, and it'll never be seen.

Usually between 20g to 50g heavier.  Mostly depends on the final playing length.

OK, so it varies then. That would make sense. Guess I'll have to start adding weight at around 20g and then just experiment from there. Not sure what length I will end up with, but the 43" one I tried at Golfsmith was way to long. Hit my sternum more than my belly. I'm 6' tall, but have fairly short legs for my height. My Mother is 5'2" and we have the same inseam.

 

Thanks for the answer BTW.
