Barney Adams - Stability Shaft

Has anyone tried this shaft yet? There's a graph in this article that shows the stability / oscillation effect that's quite interesting.

Take a really good look at that chart people.

First of all that is two different putters. Look at the difference in toe velocity.

Second, the "bad" one is obviously a toe hit.

Third, The ball is gone before the vibration measures.  so what you get is a change in feel.

Losing feel on poor strikes is pretty detrimental to putting? No?

Putter shafts definitely seem to get the least amount of attention of any piece of the puzzle. I guess nobody here at Puttertalk has tried one? That seems kind of amazing in and of itself. I'm going to email Barney Adams and see what he thinks of that. If anyone knows him...
