TM driver adaptor question


Recommended Posts

  I purchased a Stealth 3W last year from a fellow WRX’er. I have been using it since and very happy with it.  I had removed the heads of my woods to travel last month.  I went to use my 3w this week during a round off the fairway and noticed I had it set on “higher” loft instead of “standard”. I didnt have a choice so I hit it.  It went 20-30 yards further with similar flight.  When i got home I removed the head to return it to “standard” (no idea why i would do that) and discovered the adapter says “RH” on it.   I am LH. 
 
  So does having a RH adaptor change how the club sits in relation to whats printed on the adaptor with a LH head (lie,loft)??? 

  The grip alignment is set for the “standard” lie so it would drive me nuts to play with a misaligned grip!! IMG_3931.jpeg.2837e48748c33a84a3223777ac1d70fe.jpeg

Yes, it’s opposite so you lofted done by .75 degrees for each click over, and opened the face. 

This would of course depend on the +/- value for the actual sleeve.

 

But yes, a RH sleeve in a LH driver would mean loft setting is the opposite of what's indicated on the sleeve. Lie change would be the same for LH/RH.

Yeah you lofted it down 2* so the distance increase makes perfect sense. You also might have been more comfortable with the open face, and that would have opened it a ton as well (~4*). Sounds like something worth experimenting with.

Yes, 1st click is .75, then .5 for the others. For TM, others will vary.

If it's a 2 degree sleeve it would be .75 / 1.5 / 2.0 going from STD to LOWER/HIGHER.

 

What I meant is that there are 1 and 1.5 degree loft sleeves as well **. So depending on which one @3PuttLefty has, the actual settings will differ.

 

 

** I heard that there is a really rare 0.5 degree sleeve as well. Never seen one myself though.

Last dumb question…is there a LH adapter? My TM driver is from the factory. There is “stuff” on the adapter which I cant wash off. So i cant see if its RH or LH.  

 

There are LH-marked sleeves. Compare the two and see if you notice a difference. If viewed with the HIGHER setting facing towards you, the tip will be tilted right on a RH sleeve and left on a LH sleeve.

That "stuff" is corrosion. Get some WD40 and spray it on there to protect it from additional corrosion. That corrosion can seize the adapter in the head.

I was afraid for the wd to eat away any of the print.   But guess it doesnt matter if i cant read it in the first place.  Ill give it a shot!
