  1. Hi there folks! In today's session we will talk about lead tape on putters! Or more appropriately, I will ask about it I recently realized that I choke up on my putter (34") about an inch, and then decided I should just join the elite group known as 33" putter putters (not sure if that is a thing). Anyway, I took it to the local golf shop and they were able to save my grip, cut it down and let me have a go. I took it to the practice green and MAN, it felt so light! In a bad way. I talked to my tec guy who put some lead tape on the back of the head and in the center. It felt closer to what I had before, but I was wondering if anyone else has done this and what should I expect from this? I know in a driver, weight back means higher launch. Should I expect to be hitting bombs with the Texas Wedge now? Thanks in advance for the wisdom. Pictures for reference.
  2. I recently installed a shaft into a fairway wood and immediately realized it was much too light. I am eventually going to swap it out for a heavier shaft but in the mean time I was wondering if I could just add lead tape to the shaft. I like the feel of the shaft, it is just too light for the club head it is in. I searched the site and didn't see any topics on adding lead tape to shafts to increase their weight. I have heard that adding tape to the shaft near the hosel weakens tip stiffness just slightly and was thinking that I would add tape near the hosel, in the middle of the shaft and just under the grip. Hopefully this will keep the shafts characteristics true and allow me to add some weight at the same time. I have never seen someone add lead tape to a shaft that I can think of(usually just the head) so I'm not sure what it will do. Any thoughts from those more knowledgeable members may be helpful to some of us trying to learn. If this little experiment doesn't work out then all I'm out is some lead tape, so no big deal. Thanks in advance for any info on the subject.
