Stop! The Shaft in your Putter is Your Enemy!
The fairway wood, hybrid or utility club, you more than likely have one in your bag that is your go to club. You're sitting with an uphill lie and about 180 yards to the pin. The wind is howling off the Atlantic, the flag is flapping, and more than likely the little voice in your head is screaming, “just grab a 5 iron and swing and hope!”
But wait. The fairway wood, hybrid or utility club, you more than likely have one in your bag that is your go to club in situations just like this. For me it's my Adams Tight Lies Ovation 3. She's never let me down and been in my bag for years.
Adams Golf stormed onto the golf market in the mid 1980's and left an indelible impression upon many golfers improved game. The brain child of a scientific mind, Barney Adams, Tight Lies went on to change the game for recreational golfers and Pro's alike.
Barney was an engineer by trade and then through life's magic carpet ride; he became involved with Dave Peltz. The rest is history.
But ridding off into the sunset wasn't on the horizon for Barney. No, a lifelong golf and with the mind of Thomas Edison, over time his imagination began to focus on the putter. Moreso, the shaft in the putter.
Now as the 21st century has emerged Barney Adams and his creative mind just may have revolutionized golf once again. His latest creation, “The Stability Shaft” by Adams Golf
I had a chance to speak with Barney recently and was thrilled to do so. The first thing I told him was of my old trusty buddy the Ovation-3 wood in my bag. He was pleased to be talking with a appreciative fan no doubt.
Our talk was filled with a lot of technical talk. But, in the end I had Barney explain it to me in, we terms a Neanderthal like me would understand. Simply put, steel shafts in putters are inexpensive and mass produced. One problem, FLEX! When the steel shaft impacts the ball it moves, oscillates, twists and turns just before impact. Thus, your putter clubface, well baby it simply ain't dead solid perfect!
Barney has been quoted as saying, “It delivers the face more square at impact, for improved accuracy and solid feel. Plus it has a lower launch for a predictable roll and better distance control. I’ve never seen a product that can improve someone’s putting so quickly.”
“The Stability Shaft” by Adams Golf simply makes sense.
I can tell you first hand that it works! I had the Stability Shaft installed in my putter, and within the first putt I knew their was a major difference. Touch and feel are so important to a golfer and it all begins in your hands. You feel as if you, your arms, your hands, the grip, the Stability Shaft, the club head and ball are all connected as if one unit! Bottom line, say Goodbye to the dreaded three putt!
From Breakthrough Golf Technology website we read. “For more than 50 years, the putter shaft hasn’t changed -- it essentially has remained a steel pipe. Yet putter head designs have evolved and gotten dramatically heavier. The result; Shafts that are neither stable nor strong enough to keep these advanced putter heads from oscillating, twisting and turning during the stroke. In fact, the strongest part of the putter shaft is right underneath the hands, where it does the least good; the weakest part is near the head. So why would any golfer having a better option trust their putter to a cheap steel shaft? After all, they use their putter nearly twice as much as any other club.
That’s why industry veteran Barney Adams has returned to golf, with Breakthrough Golf Technology’s Stability putter shaft. Bearing a scientifically advanced multi‐material design and new geometries never before used in putter shaft design, this product has a great look, solid feel and a traditional steel putter shaft's weight. But it's way better.
“At 37 inches long, 125 grams and bearing an ultra-stiff flex, it’s designed to improve any golfer’s game,” says Adams, who serves as owner and founder of Breakthrough Golf. “ My team found the weakest point of a steel putter shaft. They used computer analysis to place a flex-resistant insert at this weak point on the Stability design. It not only greatly increases stiffness but also adds the benefit of improved feel. Golfers will feel and see the difference from their first stroke with it.”
Four components of the Stability shaft work in concert, to greatly improve putting performance. This Advanced Materials Integration consists of:
A 7075 aluminum connector that helps to reinforce. This versatility allows attachment to any tip diameter of any putter, regardless of the bend profile.
Stainless steel tips with extremely consistent wall thicknesses are coated with a smoke PVD finish to add further protection from corrosion and rusting.
Eight layers of high modulus carbon fiber that are specifically layered, wrapped and widened, with a no‐taper design to greatly reduce torque.
A lightweight, 22‐gram aluminum insert that was developed and precisely located to reinforce flexural rigidity.
The Stability shaft retails for $199.
Breakthrough Golf Technology is based in a Dallas suburb. It was born in 2014 but already has 100 years of experience. A state-of-the-art facility uses the latest technology for development, and is spearheaded by Adams, who has always had a unique ability to see what’s truly missing in golf equipment. His team of award-winning engineers thought outside the box, to come up with the game-changing Stability shaft. It will undoubtedly become iconic.”
If you care about your game and every stroke counts, then the Stability Shaft must be considered the next new CLUB in your bag!
