Edingc,
Thanks for the inspiration.
I had some 1" steel rod left over from a project.
I got the shafts from DTG also.

Thanks again,

Nice job. I did mine about a year ago but I used 1" brass rod and just milled them to get the proper weights required for each colour. For the shafts I got 3 pulled Ping driver shafts, which I got for free from the local GolfTown. They work just fine, although I think they are a touch shorter than the real sticks because of the shafts being pulls, but I don't care too much about that.

Hi everyone, With inspiration from several on here, here's my build of two sets of DIY Overspeed training sticks, matched as close to the specs for the SuperSpeed sticks as I could get. I've

I decided to make my own as I was never going to be able to justify the cost. I ordered 3 Grafalloy Prolaunch Stiff shafts for under $10, shipping was free as I combined them with another purchas

Some of you guys have some time on your hands. I could use some help putting grips on about 300 clubs. 2 beers an hour, 3 if your over 250lbs 🙂 Nice looking work folks.

Has anyone found a source for an inexpensive swing speed monitor?  I have been looking on Amazon and ebay but they are all going to be more than the overspeed training sticks. 

 

EDIT - I finally found a source for a new Blue Sports Sensors Swing Radar for $94.00 total with shipping included.

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.

That's an ingenious design. I guess my question is in the realm of practicality: when you do the SuperSpeed routine, you're constantly switching from light to middle to heavy and back again. How well will this work for that?

I haven't started the routine yet (had a slightly pulled muscle in my shoulder and also going on vacation tmrw). As long as you don't engage a bunch of threads with the bottom thumb nut then it barely takes any time at all to switch out weight sets. Plus gives you a quick breather between swing sets.

It was a way to save a few extra bucks....

If i can find a few more used drivers at Goodwill then i might change over to individual clubs.

The one I found above was the best price I found anywhere for a new unit and I promise I looked high and low.

I think i'm going to make one for myself and my Dad this will be a fun project and really straight forward Good write up. I think i'm going to order 3 different color grips instead of electrical tape since its only a few cents more each.

Picked up a pulled driver shaft from the range shop on Saturday and got supplies yesterday. Build photo's coming soon, along with material list. Drive shaft with newish grip was $8, so a good start. I'm going to use the @JonMUSC08 method of one shaft, 3 weights.

Alright, sat down and finally knocked this project outlast night, and then had to do some touch-up work when I got back to the house this evening as well. I won't go into as much detail as the other two builds since they lay out the cost and materials quite well - i'll just note any advice I might be able to provide and where my materials differed slightly. This is all based off of @JonMUSC08 nicely detailed build above. 

For starters, I was able to secure a pulled driver shaft w/ grip from my local range shop for $8 - it's a Diamana S+ S-Flex w/ Golfpride  grip.  The only other major difference from other builds was that I used a #10-24 threaded rod as the insert since that's what would fit in the tip without modification. 

IMG_20190605_205748.thumb.jpg.7aba5ced84b99375d1b7754f784bd341.jpg

I now have plenty of threaded rod for more sets...

Lastly, before the build begins, I used the 5/16 x 1-1/2" washers since those weighed the most (yes, I took my scale to HD and weighed 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, and 1/2 washers, all 1-1/2" dia). Believe they are thicker than the others, hence the added weight.

  IMG_20190605_205550.thumb.jpg.3735974a1629bd8ae1618bc29a0bd199.jpg

 

On To The Build!

First, I measured out how many washers I would need to get close to the final weights based on SuperSpeed's club weight specs. Based off a 330g driver, I measured out:

  • 10 Washers (-20%)
  • 13 Washers (-10%)
  • 17 Washers (+5%)

The initial weights, plus shaft/grip are below.20190605_204303-COLLAGE.jpg.ebe6e68e160c1c77d26c579cdb92705b.jpg

Next, gathered up supplies and headed outside to cut the threaded rod and run a dry test fit. Ended up cutting the threaded rod @ 6.25" IMG_20190604_165133.thumb.jpg.7f87cbd5e4b298f487bb4560791421ec.jpg

 

After rod was cut, I used the largest weight set, with both wing nuts in place to determine how much of the rod needed to stick out and how much could be epoxied inside the shaft. Marked the distance with a sharpie and epoxied rod into the shaft. I used a quick-set epoxy and worked in small batches to keep waste and mess to a minimum.IMG_20190604_170356.thumb.jpg.4ad77ca469122f60f10f968d87179005.jpgIMG_20190604_170451.thumb.jpg.1cd58dcab3f5778effbbd193f0a23e0e.jpg

 

Next, I epoxied the weight sets together. Note: The best method here is to use a gloved finger and just a little dab of epoxy on each washer. My first attempt, I used the supplied wooden stick and it failed miserably - way to much epoxy on each washer caused stability and drying issues as the washers kept sliding around due to how much epoxy was in between each washer. Just Use Your Finger!IMG_20190604_201814.thumb.jpg.b63af210f72cb38ba81ffb32fc026023.jpg

After that, I was lazy and used some string I had in the shop for the Plasti-Dip. This was a mistakeIMG_20190604_210258.thumb.jpg.017a2aea5946f21d66870f46dcf30417.jpg

In the drying process, the string stuck to the Plasti Dip and ripped off pieces of it when trying to remove the string, causing me to re-dip. Next go round I made quick little drying tines with some nails and scrap board I had in the shop. This went far easier and even double dipped to give it a clean appearance and remove the tine marks. As for a dipping utensil, just a bent wire hanger. 

IMG_20190605_155210.thumb.jpg.875dae8072a2fa98e72bc371cdaa1268.jpg

 

Once the Plasti dip dried, I re-checked the total weight of each set. -20% was -1g under, -10% was +3g over, and +5% was +5g over. So maybe don't double dip weights that are already close to spec...20190605_204344-COLLAGE.jpg.bbdaa1869581ae841dcb023489a0746a.jpg

 

Recap:

  1. Cut threaded rod ~6", mark distance into shaft with dry fit
  2. Weigh shaft, rod, wingnuts
  3. Make washer weight stacks with shaft, rod, and wingnuts on scale to get total weight for each set - 10 for light(green), 13 for medium(blue), 17 for heavy(red)
  4. Epoxy threaded rod into shaft up to your previous mark - while that cures...
  5. Epoxy washer weight stacks together USING A GLOVED FINGER to spread epoxy - once the stacks are cured...
  6. Dip washer weight stacks into plasti dip with wire hanger - You can fine tune the weights here if your initial stack was a little off with 1 to as many dips as needed.
  7. Set each dipped weight stack on a drying rack - screws/nail points in a board or cardboard support are easiest. 

Going to start the protocol this weekend. Oh, and SuperSpeed is kind enough to let you download their entire program Level 1-5, here.

I did these about 2 months ago and did 2 more recently as gifts.

$18 for the weights custom cut 1018 steel round bar and shipped. https://www.onlinemetals.com/en/buy/cold-roll/mild-steel-round-bar-1018-cold-finish/pid/4797 

The sizes if you are curious (1" diameter).

Green: 1.5" (target weight 139g)

Blue: 1.85" (target weight 174g)

Red: 2.3" (target weight 219g)

I then drilled them all out around 3/4" depth (until I hit the target weight) with my handheld dewalt drill, which was challenging but doable (high torque, low speed, with some oil).To steady them I drilled a 1" hole into a piece of scrap, cut from the end of the piece to the 1" hole only on one side and clamped each piece of metal into the hole, knelt on either side of the board and drilled. The first one I tried to rig up some dumb thing to center the hole, and as you can see below the 2nd two that I just eyeballed were much better.

I used a 8.6mm drill bit off amazon the first set for .335" shaft tip size, but the second time around I used an 11/32" drill bit from Lowes and it worked just fine. No weights flying off the clubs (yet).

Also these are starting to rust already so in hind sight it might be better to do stainless, but the density is a bit different so you would have to re calculate the lengths above.

This is what I wanted to do. My father has a Bridgeport mill and this would have been easy with some stainless round stock. But he was out of town when I was making these, so washers I went.

Very nice work!

Great job!  I particularly like the jig/fixturing you made to help with assembly.  Also, the use of JB Weld and Plastidip 👍.

@JohnSmalls Could you do something like this to help replace your golf sim stick? Just cut the shaft to the length you desire.

Good call, that might just work. I’ll have to give it a look and see

Finally got around to making a set for myself. total cost was about $45. Used many of the same materials as edingc but made a few changes. Used 3 different colored grips to differentiate the weights (keep in mind that the grip weight is different depending on color). I also used a smaller OD diameter on the washers to be slightly more slender.

I also used the Plasti Dip Spray which worked great but is very light weight less then a gram per coat. so make sure you get the weight almost perfect before the painting.  I think i put 8-10 coats on one to get the weight right.
