Stability Shaft Review

Stability Putter
My Odyssey 2-Ball Putter fitted with the new Stability Shaft

I was recently asked to review a new product in putter technology: The Stability Shaft from Breakthrough Golf Technology (BGT). Designed by Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf, this new putter shaft takes the shimmy and shake out of any putt and helps your golf stroke stay true to the line on which you’re putting.

What’s this all about? Here’s the scoop from the BGT website: Steel putter shafts stress during the motion of the stroke. This in turn, results in the putter face not returning square to the target line. A square putter face at impact is the holy grail of the smooth, pendulum style stroke and steel shafts combined with today’s heavier putters are in direct conflict of achieving this.

100% USGA and R&A legal.

I was about to head south for five weeks of golf in Florida and North Carolina—a great opportunity to test and review this new product. I sent my putter off to BGT and had them replace my old shaft with the new Stability Shaft. It came back within just a few days and I’ve been using it since with great success.

My Take: I’ve been asked to review a lot of golf products over time, and many don’t live up to the hype. But the Stability Shaft does! I choose my line of putt, calculate the distance to the hole and make my stroke. Nine times out of ten I’m either in the hole or within a very few inches. The other day I was faced with a 100′ putt on the 15th green at Providence Golf Club. No exaggeration – we measured it out after I sunk the putt!

I don’t pretend to understand all the technology that makes this shaft work so well and remain so stable through my putts. But you can discover it all for yourself. (Visit the BGT website here for all the techno info:

Bottom Line: The main effect of using the putter is an increase in confidence! I know I am going to make the putt every time. And even if I don’t, I’m so close to the hole, a 2 putt is a sure thing.

The current price for the Stability Shaft is $199. from BGT. At this time they require you to ship your putter to them for installation. But the turn around is only a few days. Click on this link for shipping details.

It’s a great product!

    I use the Stability Shaft on one of my putters and I can confirm that it is a pretty cool new technology. Putting is where a lot of us lose strokes and if we can one and two put more often we can improve our scores!

      Glad you approve of the new shaft. I’m trying it out this coming week on a tour of courses in North Carolina. Will report back.
