Ping Introduces Adjustable Putter Shaft

Posted on April 4, 2012

More and more golfers are purchasing belly putters after watching a number of PGA Tour players winning using them. There is a catch though, as these putters come in just one size.

A belly putter is longer than the normal putter by about six to eight inches. It is designed to “anchor” against the player’s abdomen, thus reducing the strain on the hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulders. Although the disparity in length also happens in regular putters, determining an ideal shaft length is much more difficult among belly putters.

Ping has addressed this issue with an adjustable putter shaft on its Nome 405 putter. Its length can be adjusted telescopically from 37.5 to 46.5 inches, using a tool that “threads into a locking ring on the shaft.” Its bend can also be adjusted to accommodate straight, slight arc, and strong arc putting strokes.

The shaft is made of steel (on the lower portion) and graphite (beneath the belly grip). The putter’s lie can also be adjusted plus or minus two degrees from default.

The Ping Nome 405 belly putter with adjustable shaft will be available on May 1 for a suggested retail price of $320.
