Stroke waver is the tendency of a putter head to laterally deviate from the plane of the stroke. Such a tendency is adverse to putting performance because it reduces the probability of good ball impact and launch. The cause of stroke waver is putting physiology exasperated by low putter momentum. Your putting physiology is what it is, but we can do something about low putter momentum. Momentum is a function of putter head mass and stroke speed; but in putting stroke speed is very low. So head mass is really all we can work with in solving the waver problem. Now that we know what causes dreaded stroke waver, the cure becomes obvious -- More Putter Head Mass. It is a fact that in the present golf putter market, virtually every putter offering has a head mass of between 200 and 400 grams, and that generates insufficient momentum for eliminating waver at extremely slow putting stoke speeds. So any golfer who uses one of these light-headed putters needlessly suffers stroke waver. However, there is one golf putter on the market today that has a head mass of about 600 grams, enough to eliminate stroke waver -- Quantum Golf Putter.
Stroke wobble is the tendency of a putter head to rotate as it moves along the plane of the stroke. Such a tendency is adverse to putting performance because it reduces the probability of good ball impact and launch. Stroke wobble is caused by putter imbalance with respect to the shaft (physicists call it polar asymmetry). Like a tire on an axle, the head of a putter will wobble if it is out of balance with respect to the shaft. For example, a so-called "face balanced putter", which is polar asymmetric in favor of the face, will tend to rotate during the putting stroke to its favored position.
Imagine for a moment that you set up for a putt using face balanced putter. At setup, the face will point toward the hole, wouldn't it? Then as you do the backstroke the face will tend to rotate until at the top of the backstroke it wants to be face up because that is its favored position; the problem is that would be a 180 degree wobble wouldn't it? Then as you do your power-stroke and follow-through, this polar asymmetric putter will want to rotate again so that by the time it reaches the top of follow-through, it wants to be face-up again; that would be another 180 degree wobble tendency, wouldn't it? With all that wobble tendency, who knows how the impact surface of the head will face at the moment of ball impact.
That's is very bad for precision putting, wouldn't you agree? Everything said about face favoring putters also applies to so-called toe favoring putters. Now that we know what causes dreaded stroke wobble, the cure becomes obvious -- Polar Symmetry. So any golfer who uses an asymmetrically balanced golf putter needlessly suffers stroke wobble, and would be better off if that defectively designed putter was tossed in the trash heap, and replaced with a polar symmetrically designed putter like the Quantum Golf Putter.
When the putter head laterally deviates from the plane of the stroke, that is called "waver"; and when the putter head rotates with respect to the shaft as it moves along the plane of the stroke, that is called "wobble". Both are detrimental to putting performance because each causes an increase in the probability of bad ball impact and launch...
Hold the putter shaft between the palms of your hands as shown, and then move your palms back and forth to rotate the shaft to and fro (as you would do when testing a pool cue for playing suitability). If there is any wobble, then your putter is polar asymmetric and that will cause dreaded stroke wobble. and the worse the wobble the worse it is for precision putting.. Any putter that fails this wobble test should be tossed into the trash-heap of defective design and replaced with a polar symmetric golf putter.

NEW SYMMETRIC TECHNOLOGY GOLF PUTTER BY QUANTUM - STROKE BENEFITS
We all know that golf is actually two games, the field game and the putting game; but who knows why? The reason why is actually Momentum. Momentum is a function of speed and mass, which means good momentum can be achieved with either speed or mass. In the field game good momentum is achieved with great swing speed and low head mass' but in the putting game where stroke speed is slow and deliberate, better momentum must be achieved with more head mass.
