Adjustable Backweighting


Ken_In_CA

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to homedepot it? Yes it is! Instructions inside!
I was wondering if it is possible to make a back weighting system that is easy to do, adjustable and CHEAP!!!

I know that there is a system called "balance certified" that you can do for all clubs, but the price... ouch!

So what do you all think... is it possible?

I did it! :) Doesn't look too bad either! :D

 

Very simple, quick, don't need special tools and it all costs under $3 to have an option of ~70grams of counterbalance weight. all the items can be found in a common hardware store.

 

If there are people that are interested in how I did it I will post it or email instructions. If you are not interested, oh-well. :)

 

At least I learned something new... :cheesy:

 

Oh yes, I tweeked my putter and it really feels solid! Hard to say if I'm putting better, cuz they air-rated the greens the other day, so.. :beee:

Here are the items that you need:

 

Sharp knife - exacto knife like (I used my pocket swiss army)

Rubber "Well-Nut" 1/4" - 20 X 1/2" - Short (~3 grams) $0.59

1/4" X 4-1/2" machine screw (course thread) (~20 grams each) $0.89

17 - 1/4" course thread bolts (~3 grams each - 51 grams total) $0.04 each

 

Cut a hole in your grip:

 

 

 

Then put your screw into the "Well-Nut" and add as many bolts you feel is needed (pictured is about ~35 grams):

 

 

 

 

Then put the assembled parts into your grip:

 

 

 

Push down lightly and tighten the screw. The head of the screw will sink down as you tighten, making it flush with the grip.

 

 

 

To make sure that things don't come loose you can put tape over the bolts, but I Hand tighten them and after about 2.5 hours of putting, I didn't hear any rattling nor did the bolts come loose.

 

 

Hope this helps,

Ken

Ken,

 

I just did this last weekend. . . . I made some simple modifications to your initial try at balance certifiying my putter.

 

I used the testing form from balance certified website to figure out what amount of weight to add to the putter. You can see the grams of the combinations. I hit 3 putts with each weight. Then I switched the weight. I ended up testing the weights 3 times before I decided to go with the heaviest.

 

I hate rattles so I used some glue and some foam weather stripping to make sure it doesn't rattle.

 

Overall I ended up spending about $10 total.

 

Great design.

 

-----

Here I sharpened a piece of the butt end of a Steel shaft as my cutter. I heated it first and then used the heat and a hammer to punch the hole in the top of the grip.
