I've been building my own clubs for a little while now. I was just fitted into the Project x LZ 6.0 minus 3/4 of an inch. I have recently purchased a set of new Mizuno MP18 SC heads for the new build. I tested them and they feel like butter when hit pure. I have a question for all you MGS people out there. I will be cutting down the shafts and i need some swing weight advice. I have had a couple ideas for this build to not add to much weight into the head with tip weights to where it feels like a mini hammer. I do have a swingweight scale at home to check and fine tune each club to ensure correct swing weights.
First thought- Use a lighter grip such as the GolfPride Tour Velvet 360 Lite which would add about 2 swingweight points back into the club, and then use a tip weight to fine tune the weight to a D0 to D2 weight.
Second- Utilize a super lite grip such as the Golfpride or Winn grip at 25 grams but I'm afraid doing this would effect the overall feel of the club .
Third option- Using only tip weights to bring the overall swingweight back to a D0-D2
I'm leaning towards the first option as it tweaks both sides for a better overall feel i hope vs adding or taking away weight or adding it to one end of the club. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
