Plumber's Neck Putter Adapter
This precision cast, stainless steel adapter is designed to fit virtually any putter with a 0.370" parallel bore 90° socket and transform it into an entirely different putter regardless of manufacturer. The Plumber's Neck adapter converts a right-handed putter designed to have a compound double bend shaft with the proper lie/offset and accept a straight shaft. Weighs 44g. Creates a 72° lie angle. This has an attractive neutral bead blast finish.
Directions: Simply test fit stem into the putter's socket as it should be a tight fit. If it does not fit, lightly hand sand stem until it is snug. Apply quick setting epoxy to stem, seat and align adapter and allow the epoxy to harden. Lastly, install the new shaft - it's that simple!
What is the total length of the adapter?
It is 72 degrees.
I believe that putter has a post where the shaft fits over. Plus the Plumber's neck hosel will only work on putters with a 90 degree socket, not on this model where the lie angle is already built in. If you wanted to create an offset, I might suggest the Apollo AP46OP-001 shaft shown here:
What is the bore in the plumber's neck socket? 0.370 or smaller?
It is 0.370" for both the hosel bore for the shaft and the stem that goes into the socket of the head.
Even though the hosel adapters are made of stainless steel and usually bendable, you are relying on the strength of the two screws to take the brunt of the force required to alter the lie angle. Therefore we would not recommend attempting to alter the lie.
It is specific for RH putters. If you try to put it into a LH putter you will either have negative offset or the shaft will be pointing toward the toe (non-conforming).
I have not worked with that putter before, but as long as that putter head has a 90 degree socket that measures 0.370", then it will fit.
Designing a putter head and wondering if you have a couple of measurements for me...
Do you know when the adapter is mounted flush with top of hitting surface, if I wish the shaft to line up with the center mass of the ball, the distance off center the .370" socket hole must be placed off a line that bisects the hitting surface? (sorry, wish I could draw a diagram ...)
How long is the cylinder is that mounts into the socket ? aka: how deep must the hole be to mount flush to the base of the adapter ? (from that I can calculate the distance that actually is above the putter top surface)
How far the socket (hole) must be offset from the hitting surface so that the shaft is centered on the top of the hitting surface? (so it bisects the center of the ball)
Sorry, trying to build the Solidworks model tonight ... :-)
Here is the easy part first. The cylinder that fits down inside the putter head is 14mm long. The rectangle that forms the base is 14 mm long (heel-to-toe) and 11.5mm wide. You may need to send me a picture to [email protected] be able to answer you other question better.
Is this possible?
