How closed does the face get with the TM adapter when lofting up? I just got a BRNR - the epoxy is drying right now - and I'm used to callaway adapters with tour issue clubs that have open faces where i can close them and theyre still neutral. Is the BRNR pretty neutral in a + loft? 


Not especially. Sits slightly closed.

Spent the last 2 days pounding my 13.5* in a tournament. I put a GD AD TP in it at 43" and it just goes straight. Shorter length seems to make it really hard to put a bad swing on it and distance is 10-15 yards shorter than driver off a tee. Off the deck, it shoots out bullets which run out great. Not sure I would try to cover a distant hazard due to the ball flight off the deck, but on a 2nd shot Par 5 with nothing to fear, this thing will play very well to get on the front of a green or put a wedge in my hand for the 3rd.

How did you bring the swingweight back?

This was my experience as well. As much as I do love my 3W, the brnr mini just performs. I play it at .5” longer than 3 wood but still 1.5” shorter than driver. It’s a super reliable 250-275 and can shape it how I want. I had been losing 4-6 shots off the tee lately (which I need to fix with the driver) but going out and hitting the mini 70% of the time with a few drivers sprinkled in shot even. That was after multiple rounds in the 76-80 range due to those strayed drives into hazards. 
 

It honestly started as a “for fun” type purchase, but now I’m debating changing up the bag a little and throwing an extra wedge in, going back to 52/56/60 from 52/58. 
 

I am not 100% sold on it off the deck but I don’t have much business expecting/hitting 3W/mini from 250+ with much success. I just rope the 5 wood as close as I can and move on.
 

Very interesting experiment turned potential long term solution, and I can put 3 wood back in for longer courses where I may require it.

I replaced the 1.5g weight in front with a 6g weight. 

From Bob’s?

No, off Amazon...Works fine, weight and screw combined equal 6g. Also can't use a torque wrench, need T20 screw head...

How heavy is the head, about? Can a driver length shaft be used with nothing more than a little butt weighting, as needed? Head weights lightened. 

 

I think I’d only get it for what it’s not intended for, driver replacement. I’d be interested in it at 9.5* and 45”. It’d have to beat out my driver I don’t think it’d like hitting this at 13* or more. Just too big to be stuck with it for every “3w shot” off the deck.
