Finding the right static weight for a driver.
I’ve been reading the club tech posts for awhile now and have been experimenting with shortening drivers to the 44” range which has worked well for me. However, I have also read on this site that total weight is the second most important fitting parameter after length. (As opposed to trying to return the club to original swingweight with more head weight and heavier shafts.) Heavier swingweights have always seemed to be more consistent for me, but what I am wondering is really two things. What is considered a normal range of total weight for a driver today? At what point would would the weight enough to start diminishing returns on distance? Secondly, is loss of distance the main sign of adding too much weight to a driver? A Callaway Epic that put together with a 70g shaft and some extra weight to get the head feeling right weighed in around 330g which was significantly more than some of my other drivers I had laying around. I have been retrofitting my own clubs for awhile now and am just trying to gain some insight from all of the knowledgeable guys that post here. Thanks.
