Recommended Posts

Hi chaps,

Im in the UK and am about to phone Joe kwok tommorrow night to sort out him building a driver for me (you can't believe how excited i am after reading all about his knowledge,expertise and skill) :tongue: ).

 

Ive read on here a few times about the filling of the rear central port on an R5 with a tungsten mix.Can someone explain the idea of this and does anyone have any pics of the finished product ?

 

Im guessing like a modern MOI putter this is to move the COG as far back as possible and hence reduce backspin - if so it could be what im looking for............

 

Cheers Syer - (sevenfourate)

Syer:

 

I was Joe's first R5 that had the tungsten epoxy added to the N badge port. It was done primarily to achieve proper swingweight for my 44.5" playing length. It did achieve several important collateral benefits. First, the head feels much more solid now. No excessive tinging or vibration. Second, I feel that there is a positive MOI-effect with all that weight added to the rear of the head behind the sweetspot. Afterall, that's one of the professed benefits of TM's moveable weight technology, right?

 

I firmly believe that adding the plug will improve the playing characteristics of your R5.
