Looking for some information/help regarding which kind of putter is best for my kind of stroke. I'm not sure what it's called but I think it's referred to as a "plumbers neck" on my current putter. I have a SC Select Newport 2. The bottom of the shaft fits into a cup that then shoots down into the putter itself. I have a straight back/straight through putting motion.
It seems to me that a putter where the bottom of the shaft goes directly into the putter itself (examples of this are Odyssey Versa 1 wide and SC Select Newport 2 Notchback) would work better with my putting stroke versus a putter that has this "plumbers neck" (example is my current SC Select Newport 2).
I think that no plumbers neck may be better for my stroke because a putter that has the plumbers neck always will have your hands just in front of the blade of the putter, regardless of how your set up is. Without the plumbers neck your hands are more even to the face of the putter. I hope this makes sense, sorry I am not familiar with all the terms. Am I correct that a putter with no plumbers neck is better for a SBST putting stroke? (note: I am not talking about center-shafted putters, just the ones where the bottom of the shaft goes right into the putter at the heel of the putter).
