Removing Studio Select weights. Pictures for DIY'ers


Recommended Posts

I have read more than a few threads about this subject, so here are some pictures to show the method that works for me.

Hope this helps out the guys who want to work on their own SS putters and saves some $$$ over sending them to the Cameron Studio.

Good Luck!

Great! To put it back in do I need to use epoxy glue or the weight can be scred back in securely?

Thanks for posting that. I went on the bay and found the dude that makes that tool and ordered one. I also picked up some clean looking 20 gram weights off of him too.(these will replace the 15 gram weights that are pretty scraped up from my endless tinkering with pliers) I'll try and post some pics of it when I get all that stuff in. Thanks again for the idea!

Alright so the weight tool and weights came in. The tool is super easy to use, as LaMont indicated its very easy to just insert into a vise and tap the weights loose. (mine were already loose, but I could see how this would help a fresh set of weights)

 

Here is a picture of what I got for 30 bucks. 2 weights of your choice (I picked 20 grams and a tool) Certainly this is not for a purist that MUST have the original weights - I am not one of these purists.

Then I popped them in (my only concern was that they would fit well and be flush. Which they are.

The picture quality is poor since Im taking cell phone images here, if anyone has any questions about this weight option let me know. Its way cheaper than the regular scotty weights.

Don't put them on a scale and compare the actual weight to the stated weight, you'll be disappointed. Every set of aftermarket weights I've seen are 2-3 grams off each, some as much as 5 grams.

Pretty close, good enough for me. Heck, Scotty used to have an acceptable variance of 5 grams or more on his OTR putters, even those stamped with actual weight like the 33"/350 gram models or 34"/340 gram. models. I have a ProPlat Bullseye Flange 33"/350 gram model in my shop, right now that was off by 4.7 grams. Still, that is alright by me. Keep it within 5 grams and I'll never be able to tell the difference.
