We’ve tested the Carbon Mac against the world’s leading putting brands - proving it gives the player 20% more consistency than any other putter shaft. And here’s the Quintic data to back it up.
Following the 5 characteristics of putting, we’re going to look at the consistency of shafts and how the testing we did (using Quintic Ball Roll, GCQuad and other data metrics) means we’ve been able to measure how stable shafts are at the point of impact and, more importantly, during the stroke.
The 5 characteristics of putting
1. Delivery of the club face
Why it’s important: The golf ball’s start line is determined by the face angle of the club at the point of impact.
2. Path of the club
Why it’s important: The path of the club moving into the ball is key to getting the club face square to the target.
Why it’s important: Speed is a key part of where and how you aim. The more pace you put on, the less brake will happen before the ball gets to the hole. Remember that the ball that’s travelling the slowest will take more of the gravitational brake on the putt.
The following 2 characteristics require technology to measure. We used analysis systems like Quintic Ball Roll, SAM Putt Lab and Capto to capture this information. Here’s our findings:
4. Loft of the club
Our results: The Carbon Mac shaft has the lowest deflection range at 0.58 degrees, proving to be 66% more consistent than the steel shaft, and 20% more consistent than the Stability Shaft.
Why it’s important: Loft is key to achieving distance control and a consistent skid to roll percentage on your putts. You need to look at how much the loft is changing and whether you have a positive or negative loft.
5. Rise angle
Our results: When testing the launch angle range, the Carbon Mac outperformed the steel shaft with a better range of 0.34 degrees, making it 5% more consistent than the steel shaft.
Why it’s important: Rise angle is how much the club is coming up or going down into the ball, which determines the path of your putter’s head on impact.
