I should add that I'm not trying to be negative. I'm actually of the mindset that most people use putters that are too long for them.
Sorry, wasn't paying attention to the thread.
Well, to answer your question its yes and no.
Cutting down your putter will obviously make the shaft in the putter lighter. (They're heavier shafts to begin with, depending on the putter). Swing weight wise, I'm not sure how much different it makes.
BUT, if you cut down the putter, the head will feel a little bit more heavy. To be honest, if I were to guess cutting my putter down 2 inches changed the swing weight two knocks heavier.
This is why you always want to send a Scotty Cameron to Titleist for them to either cut/reshaft. They'll keep the same swing weight for you if it's comfortable.
