Introducing VM-Tech by Gold’s Factory a putter and shaft insert made of stainless steel and while small it does a few very big things for putter performance & feel. The first is it increases the putter heads verticle MOI from neck to face, horizontal MOI measured from low on the front of the face to the furthest point back, face balance is measured heel to toe while Vertical MOI produces a top to bottom balance adding a little more distance for the same length stroke + more forward roll, but how could such a small piece of metal have such an effect on the Vertical MOI? well because this tiny part is 20 grams heavy which brings us to it’s second advantage, your putter head is now heavier so this is not only a good thing for balance and feel but also a cost effective way to increase head weight. Finally when using a steel putter shaft it the VM-tech insert dampens and softens the feel as the shaft vibrates up into the hands this is an extra barrier reducing the harsher vibrations where the putter hosel meets the shaft. So in the end you get a greater Vertical MOI, + 20g weight, and softer feel with better roll.
Taking this a step further gold’s factory has created gold plated versions of the VM insert which are supposed to better for dampening vibration while adding a cool subtle gold band between the putter shaft and the hosel (pic not shown). The new VM-Tech insert by Gold’s Factory sells for about a #100 in standard stainless and $150 gold plated. Please get in touch to modify your putter with this option by emailing [email protected]
