Taylor Made Spider weight torque specs

My weight was rattling in my Spider putter so I used a Taylor made weight wrench to tighten in back up.... but it snapped off. Are the putter weights not installed with the same torque specs as the driver weights?

    I learned it the hard way and snapped a weight off in my putter. After that I only tightened till it feels like it's snug, don't use the full force of the driver wrench.

    Yeah, this is kind of a live and learn topic. I've been using a spider of some sort for a long time and had a weight issue years ago from over-tightening. Ever since then, it's been tighten until snug.

    It's usually just the lighter 1 and 2 gm weights you have to worry about with the new torque wrench. But no, even the heavier ones don't need the full click that the driver head screws need. The original TM wrench for the r7 weights (before the adjustable hosel) was ~3/4 of the torque of the current wrench.

    With the older spiders? I'm about to swap weights in my Spider X today and do not want to mess it up. TM said to tighten until it clicks with that version.

    Do you know the size of the weights? how heavy are each weight?

    You should not have any problems tightening the 6 gm weights until the click. Now it's not really necessary to get that tight for the putter weights but it shouldn't hurt anything. Its only if you go back to the 2 gm weights that you might have to be concerned about over tightening them.
