@GolfSpy MPR  did the bolt fit inside of the shaft inner diameter? And you used some sort of epoxy/glue to golf it in there?

Yep, that's exactly it. Standard golf epoxy.

I used a gorilla glue 2 part epoxy from home depot. Just looked for something in the 2000-3000 psi strength range.

Well there are 2 threads that now have great instructions to DIY your own SuperSpeed sticks.

I changed my SuperSpeed sticks into ONE Stick. My design features removable weights.

Here is my parts list and instructions for the one I built.

GoodWill:

  • driver - $2.99

Lowes:

  • 3/8" ID Fender Washers (100ct) - $16.00
  • 1/4x20x12" threaded rod - $2.00
  • thumb nuts - $1.00
  • JB Weld - $5.00
  • Plasti-Dip - $6.00

Total Cost: $33.00 *(plus some leftover supplies for another stick)

Instructions:

  1. Cut the driver head off of the shaft at the base of the shaft.
  2. Cut the threaded rod to approximately 5"-6" long.
  3. Using the scale, weigh the shaft and the cut piece of threaded rod. Record that value.
  4. Using the scale, weigh 1 washer. Knowing the weight of the 1 washer and the weight of the shaft & threaded rod, we can determine how any washers are needed to meet the the total weight for the light, medium, and heavy sticks.
  5. Using the information from SuperSpeed the green total weight should be about 13% lighter than your driver, blue is 5% lighter, and red is 15% heavier. I have a TM M6 (324.4g) so i used (10) washers for green, (12) washers for blue, and (17) washers for red.
  6. Coat about half of the threaded rod (start from the end that was cut bc the threads may be messed up) in JB Weld and insert into the driver shaft. Set aside to dry.
  7. I used JB Weld to glue each washer to one another for each weight set.
  8. Once the glue had been set (abt 24hrs), I used  a piece of wire to dip each weight set into the plasti-dip can. To dry each dipped weight set, i screwed (3) screws through a board to act as a minimal touching drying rack. About 3 to 4 coats are needed to get a good coating.  
  9. Add 1 thumb nut to the threaded rod, add a weight set, and add another thumb nut.

***I need to add a picture of the final design....

DONE.

Change weight sets for changing swing weights.

My simple build.  Old TM driver shaft, 4mm phillips screws (to match the number of washers)  16 , 21, and 26 washers for 253g, 295g, and 336g total club weight of the shaft and washers .

Used a small lock washer at the head of the screw, small fender washers at the top and bottom (1/16" hole x 5/16" dia), and big  (3/16" hole x 1 1/4"dia) for the weight.  8g each.

TM Fujikura XLR8  Reg flx from M2 driver.  Might switch to Senior flex.

You won't find clubs matching the weight of these.  The lightest one is much lighter than a regular club, and the heaviest one is somewhat heavier than a regular club.  It's more about the club length and swing weight than the overall weight or anything else I reckon.

This is my attempt at recreating the SuperSpeed clubs.  I'm pretty happy with the result actually.

$45 .00 for the shafts
$17.20 for the grips
$16.50 for the shaft adapters
$20.00 approx. for the various washers I used to match the overall weights.

Roughly AUD$100 all up.  So, probably around USD$3.50 if you're not subject to the "Australia tax" 🙄.

The actual SuperSpeed clubs are $329.95 on Amazon AU.

Any of you who have made your own DIY set: Anything fly apart over time? Or are they holding together well?

My son's set had a washer come loose (at the top of the stack, so it was sliding up the shaft). A dab of epoxy fixed that. His set is also due for a replacement of the protective pool noodles I wrap around the washers to soften inadvertent blows 🙂

Mine are still holding together well. They've withstood a few bounces off concrete and the ground. Grips are starting to show some wear, though.

I am on my second radar screen. Those don't do so well with collisions...

Is everyone using the SuperSpeed protocols and charting? I'd be interesting in the results as well.

I thankfully only cracked the LCD screen. I called the company and they sent another one free of charge, but it took about three months to get the screen.
