  1. HAVE NOT BOUGHT NEW tITLEIST FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. Still going through the boxes I have in stock when I bought bulk to save a few.
  2. $300 + your time and the cost of fuel. I would take that fun trip myself.
  3. A lot of work. either you have to love that particular putter much or someone has to pay enough for the trouble. I'll just slap some lead tape on the head and call it good.
  4. First, make sure the grip I.D. fits the shaft's O.D. The shaft has taper, the more we trim off the butt end the thinner the shaft's O.D. You can try using another layer of masking tape or two, they are thinner than the two sided tape. Or change the tape to another kind with textured surface. Masking tapes has smooth surface which could be roughed up with sand paper to give more friction. And if you use a two parts grip (typically harder material on top and softer material in the lower half of the grip) It will be easier to twist with use. It will probably also twist with double sided tape. Push the grip all the way down make sure the end cap is seated. squeezed the grip in it's entire length to vent out possible small pockets of air so the grip is firmly attached to the shaft. Beyond that, use another type of grip. The best type of grip for air install is the traditional wrap or tour velvet.
  5. It is why we use a nosel with pressure trigger which able to moderate the pressure. Also using a sleeve over the grip to install and remove grips. Always be careful when the grip could not expand uniformly. The ones with a rubber underlisting, or a two parts construction will need extra attention since the parts will expand differently. Use a little solvent if needed to help lubricate the parts when sliding on with air. Very helpful when fitting a smaller grip on. There ar different types of painter's tape the original blue tape works well when the grip I.D. fits snuggly to the shaft's O.D. Of course, if the butt of the shaft is trimmed off the O.D. will get progressively smaller from the taper. No bbig deal to figure it out, hands on. It is not sending a rocket to the moon and back.
  6. Was it difficult to remoive the ball bearing ?
  7. Imressive for private project. Refine the method to attach the parts and it could fly commercially. Other consideration is to move the weight around on the design ot to provide a way to move the weight. The only short pont I could see is too many moving parts for longevity.
  8. If it were I. I'd get that guy a lunch or refer him some business in the near future. Understand that he sort-of volunteered to spend the time with you but, you get to experience a lot of the heads and shafts combinations without paying for his time. You would not have been able to do all that without his presence. Typically, they will not allow anyone to try out so many different combinations knowing that no fees were paid and no interest in buying anything. An hour and a half should march you through the whole bag at a normal pace after the initial discussion.
  9. Foam golf balls? Use an old bed sheet. Draw multiple bullseyes on the sheet for target.
  10. Most of the guys in our group will remove the OEM head covers from driver, fairway woods, hybrids and putter and replace them with generic head covers. A popular theme on the head cover will be the local sports teams. This is frequently practiced after someone's driver/putter was stolen at the bag drop area, one incident was right in front of the club house. The club house has installed video cameras but it's better than paying the deductibles on insurance to replace the stolen golf clubs. A golf bag containing a few thousand dollars' worth of golf clubs will attract opportunity thievery.
  11. The drawback from using a magnetized closure for head cover is ripping the material after frequent usage. Velcro could be replaced but the ripped material could not be easily repaired. Save your Scotty head cover and use aftermarket head cover featuring magnetized closure. Not just for saving the head cover from wear and tear, but the Scotty head cover is an advertisement for unwanted attention. Thief on and around the golf courses are on the rise.
  12. Yes, a tip weight for graphite shaft. It gets loose when you pull the adaptor. I would not epoxy it into the tip of the shaft if you're thinking of reusing the shaft sometime down the road. It's good as long as not rattling.
  13. In your situation, I would go for the mid-weight graphite shaft. Instead of switch to the light weight steel and soon will need to switch over to graphite.
  14. Customs-hop was ever cheap. It's their business model. The owner learned that business trait before he got famous and popular. Use good quality paint, clean up the cavity really well prior to applying new paint. Have fun.
  15. Don't forget the total static weight of the club and the balance point of the assembled club. IMHO they are more important than the swing weight numbers. The back weight is to improve feel, not a magic bullet to cure issues in a golf swing.
