Anyone do it to mute the sound, change feel, or add swingweight?

    Not hotmelt, but I stuffed my 3i head with as much yarn as I could. It definitely muted the sound a bit. Swingweight I just pulled the shaft and added a 7g tipweight

    I hot melted my 5i before I sent it back to Ping as a warranty claim just to see how it felt and sounded. Too heavy after added, but it muted the sound and feel to a much better level IMO. I’m currently trying to find some way to mute the feel and sound.

    I’m adding some speedfoam in a few of my heads this week, takes less than 1/2 teaspoon(liquid form) not even a 1/4gram of weight added.

    when people add hotmelt through the **** hole, how do they know where the hotmelt would end up sticking ? like heel side or toe side?

    Been looking for this. What exactly is the speed foam made of and where to find it?

    It’s a patent trade secret, won’t be to just get it any where. I just happened to take a small sample to the lab, pulled the properties and remade the formula.

    Kudos to you and thanks for leaving us all empty handed and jealous! LOL

    Mine came from the factory full, at least from what I can see, of hotmelt or whatever Ping likes to call it. They must have done it to hit my requested swingweight at the slightly shorter lengths of my order.



    I think my irons do sound more muted and feel more solid than the demo clubs I tried before ordering.
