TS3 owners (weights)


Recommended Posts

Just cut 0.5inch off the TS3 so it'll play at 45". I was told that i now need +2 gram weight to bring the sw back up. I tried looking on ebay, but most of the them are for 917 which i believe is compatible but the weights are something like 8g - 16grams.

 

Does anyone know which one i should be getting ?

 

Btw, what is the TS3 stock swing weight ?

Highly recommended not to use 917 weight in ts3 products but it does fit I used one in my driver for a few rounds waiting for a heavier weight. To the op yes If custom ordered from Titleist they will take it upon themselves to fix weight unless specified directly which weight you want.

Under construction....

You would need 6grams to make up the 1/2"

 

1/2" = 3 SW points

2grams = 1 pt roughly

 

I bought a "knockoff" 917 weight on ebay for my TS3. Fits even better than the OEM. Cost like $12

I’ve been working with those “facts” many years now, but Titleist spec sheet says something different and I can just confirm that Titleist is actually right here.

 

I took 1” of my TS2 and TS3 driver from 45.5” to 44.5”. TS2 with EF White 65s and TS3 with Smoke 60 6.0. I added the recommended weights from Titleist which is +4g weight to both TS2 and TS3 and now both are spot on D2 :-)

There is no black magic Titleist is doing. Swingweight is just math, my swingweight scale disagrees with your assessment. So does Joe Kwok http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/topic/44071-swing-weight-factors-in-relation-to-parts/

where did you order the weight ? im assuming any authorized dealer? or did you order direct from Titleist?

its a weighted metal stick, i dont care if its a knockoff.. esp when Titleist wants 30bux for it; after already paying 500 for the driver.

 

Which one should i be getting (which gram weight) ?

The TS standard driver weight is 12g, so depends on what you want your SW to be. One shaft I have for mine plays 45, so I had 6 grams of hotmelt added, and it brought it to D4, where I like it.

Shooting for swingweight is not the way to go IMHO. I've played drivers between 44" and 45.5" the past few years. The 44" played around D0 (was a 75 gram shaft with a bit of counterweight). The 45.5" was a G400 LST (very heavy head) that was close to D6.5 (this also had a slightly counterbalanced shaft). I liked em both. Club balance is an extremely important factor that SW doesn't come close to accounting for. So just my two cents, but see how you like the 45" club without shooting for an arbitrary goal like D3.

It took a bit of research to find and put together the following:

 

**Titleist TS3 Surefit Weight Kit**

 

**TS3 Driver**

+6 (17g)

+4 (15g)

+2 (13g)

STD (11g)

-2 (9g)

-4 (7g)

 

**TS3 Fairway**

+6 (18g)

+4 (16g)

+2 (14g)

STD (12g)

-2 (10g)

-4 (8g)

 

**Also, I have two OEM fairway weights that are -2g (10g) that I would like to trade for STD or +2.**

Message me if you would like to trade or buy.

 

Thanks!

Another question here. What happens if you go negative with your weight. Say you play it at 45, -4 weight with a little lead tape more towards the front. Would that "shift" some of the weight to the front of the club? Faster swing speeds? Easier to turn the head over?
