Titleist T200 Order — Can’t Get to Spec?


Recommended Posts

Long story short, wanted to test this against the current gamer. Provided shop with a full spec sheet — loft, lie, shaft, swing weight, etc. order placed in two pieces as I wanted the wedges slightly upright but everything else Titleist standard lie.

 

Order arrives. Everything is right but swing weight. I let shop know it’s not to spec. Titleist apparently claiming they can’t get my shaft (Modus 105S, +1”) to the swing weight sought (D6) with those heads, and that my only option is lead tape.

 

Am I wrong in thinking that’s BS? My current gamers (Rogue ST Pro) ordered through the same shop with zero issue.

I would think that if they can’t do it, they can’t do it….but they need to tell you that before they build them so you can decide if you want them in the form they can build them. 

 

That's my issue.

 

It'd be one thing had I been told up front that I'd need to slather them in lead tape to make it happen. But I wasn't.

 

But it also seems like they're saying "well, we built them this way and we didn't put any tip weights in, figure it out yourself." Which also really, really irks me.

+1" and they are measuring D0, something is way off.  You have a massive grip installed throwing off the scale?

Yes...really weird.  I had T200 on Steelfiber i80 that were standard length and SW was D0/D1.  Plus 1inch on modus 105 should have gotten there or at least pretty close to D6.

I'd bet if I took the heads off there aren't any tip weights in.

That would be extremely odd, I have yet to see any Titleist sets without weight tips, but ive seen stranger things.  I have T100 set with project x 5.5 that also came at D0 when I ordered D2.  However, I do prefer them coming under as I like the look of lead tape and place it exactly where I want it placed.

I just don't know how else they'd be this far off. Nor would I expect the response to be, after the order arrives, to then tell me that my spec is allegedly unachievable with the mix of components selected.

Updating this -- either the club or the rep they sent the order to never specified the build weight -- hence the lightness. Trying to figure out if I'm just going to lead tape the s*** out of them or have them pull the heads and put the correct tip weights in.

 

Good to know it's a human / comms issue and not a build / quality control thing.

12 grams of lead tape is a TON. I'd go with a tip weight.

That's the preference, for sure.

 

I'm also desperately itching for a change after playing a practice round for a tournament this month where, in 18 holes, I think I had exactly two decent iron shots and every other strike stunk. Thank God for good wedge play and putting.
