The earliest versions of the Diamana White board such as the Ahina, White Board or D+ plus are surprisingly good for 70g shafts.
They may not have the latest technology but being in 70g solves most stability issues while retaining some feel.
For those who deem the experience worth the cost, more power to you and I sincerely hope you get to go and hope you enjoy every minute of it.
My inner tightwad will never let me fork over that kind of money for a single round of golf. Not there, not anywhere. For what that would cost I can play a seasons worth of golf on my local course and I'd certainly prefer spending my money that way.
I believe I would.
Which is why I might never play Pebble Beach. I likely won't ever deem it worth the cost, so I will probably never play it. Because had I forked over > $550, I'd probably regret it.
Meh. I'm simply not enamored with the place. If they did a renovation… then maybe we're talking.

First off, make sure you try a putter at the proper length. Cutting a 35”to 31” will not be good...weight will be FUBAR.
Second, what style putter do you like? I prefer the Anser style and stick with that. I had a mallet before and it was fine but I prefer the simple look of the Anser style because I can look at Ping, Scotty, Odyessey and find the same look. That’s something you don’t get with a mallet.
I second going to Golf Galaxy and looking through the used bin. I would have killed for that $80 Cameron Newport mentioned earlier in the thread. My current putter which feels so good I can’t see myself giving up is a Ping Anser Redwood that I picked up used at Golf Galaxy for $60 like new.
