Is bending a putter shaft a simple task?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've verified the lie on my Scotty Cameron Catalina is 71 degrees as is the spec. But to get the sole to lie flat, I have to choke down more than I'd like. My Never Compromise has always laid much flatter and I measured it's lie to about 68 degrees.

 

So if I take the Scotty to my pro shop and have them bend the goose neck shaft 3 degrees flatter, do they have to pull the grip and fill the shaft with sand or is 3 degrees a minimal where it's already bent? Thanks.

Might be better to ask the person who you're asking to do it.
I'd have a go at doing it myself.

Well duh - I called the pro shop and talked with the guy that bends lies and lofts and he said he could do it. I was there in 20 minutes, bought another wedge at their "garage sale" while I was waiting, guy did an excellent job. The sole lies flat as a pancake at address now - I'm feeling it!

That's the right outcome!

Scotty Heads and putter shafts in general are easy to bend. Just take it along to a pro with a putter loft and lie machine. Take 2 minutes and you can go up to about 5 degrees either way. The shaft is heated and bent in most cases for goose neck. Should only cost $3 or $4

It's not hard to do, as long as you have the right tools and a little training.
