  1. Shortening Driver

    I have a question for the club builders out there. Probably straightforward for those who know their stuff. I have a R1 currently at 45.5" and D4 SW. I would like to shorten it to 44.5". What will this do to the SW? Will the change in SW make the club head feel "heavier" or "lighter" or is that...

  2. Grip Question

    How much does a wrap of grip tape weigh? I tinkered with my grips and I believe due to the less weight of the current grip, my performance has suffered. The grips that worked best for me were a midsize at 59 grams. Currently I am playing a 50 gram grip with 3 wraps underneath. How close am...

  5. Graphite Shaft Optimization and Characteristics
