First, that was a putter I liked during my PGATSS putter exploration time. The alignment is super easy and the feel and roll was solid. It did suffer a bit in my interest due to a puzzling lack of fanfare and usage. Great to see someone using it.
Good stuff. It’s amazing how much a different shaft such as a CT Tour can change the feel of a putter. I just ordered another 4 KBS putter shafts and am looking forward to experimenting with their One Step, probably first in a Toulon Austin head.I've apparently found a groove with the modified FCG. It's been pretty lights out lately. Added about 2.5* of loft and lean it just a little more than my blades, and it gets a really sweet roll. Thought it was going to be a fun experiment but it's definitely earning consideration for a long term place in the bag.
Feels like I'm the only one I ever seen in the wild playing it, so it must not be very popular. I see Morikawa with it, but that feels like more of a . Lol. Morikawa is about the only other person I ever see playing P7MC too, so :confused2:.
My putters mod'ing has been a slow learning experiment (I try to keep the putter part of the bag pretty steady usually), that honestly started just based on looks. I like my blacks. Haha Pretty sure I bought the wrong sized shaft for one along the way at some point, set one up with the exact same weight, swing weight, balance point, etc hoping it would perform the same as another (did not), and have ruined a couple grips by thinking I had a setup just right, but didn't. Luckily toe hang putter shaft shapes are pretty easy.First, that was a putter I liked during my PGATSS putter exploration time. The alignment is super easy and the feel and roll was solid.

As to your modifications, how the heck do you change out the shaft and weight? I can find the KBS shaft you mention but picking which one (straight, single bend, double bend) is not obvious to me and then how to set that up is even less obvious. And I assume there are weight options? I don’t think I will pick up one of these, although my golf brain came well equipped with impulse buying mode. I would like to start tinkering with clubs and putter could be a fun place to start. A learning experiment might be fun. Thanks!
The replacement weights for a bunch of theirs fit these, but yeah, the grip and shaft you'd probably want to dial in too if it felt light. I don't think you can order them custom, from them at least, but I could be wrong on that.@OldandStiff every time I go to the PGA store this is the first putter I grab to roll. I do like it alot and want to convince myself to buy it but when it first released my initial reaction was "wow this is super light." Id probably have to put a shaft in it like you did
Love the shape behind the ball and the alignment. Face feels good. but the combo of this shaft and super skinny grip is a very odd combo. I dunno if TM makes weights for this one but its something I would need to look at before buying one
You can get them on the Superstroke website under 'customize your grip'. I know it's available for the Pistol GT's, Tours, Claws, etc. It's only a couple bucks maybe? Just have to upload an image and it'll show you what it will look like.How does one go about getting that custom grip? Looks sweet!
I'm really digging the FCG. I'm getting more confident with it every time I play. I'm probably going to change the grip at some point, though. I think a little larger grip will make it even more stable for me. I'm a little surprised that more people aren't using the FCG, but I guess the look and feel of it might turn some people off.Well @will brought these up for the first time in ages, and I missed @jfrigo1003 's posts. It's nice to see a couple people enjoying it.
I haven't played mine in a while. I found what I'd been looking for and it's entrenched. I can't bring myself to sell my FCG though. At some point I'll get to goof around and play different stuff again, and I really do like it compared to other mallet like stuff. It was fun to read back through my impressions and tinkering to dial it in. That was a fun time.
