R9 460/Burner Swing Weight plug?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have access to the swing weight plugs shown in the picture below. I need to find a heavier one than the one that is installed in my R9 460 head to bring my swing weight up from D1 to D3. This swing weight decrease happened when I put the lighter 2010 R9 adapter (almost 3grams lighter) in this head, which makes the head feel so much better thanks to less weight in the heel of the club. I do not want to hot melt or use lead tape either (lead tape installed now). And I don't want to change the length or weight of my shaft because it's fit perfect for me. I have the three prong tool to remove it, just can't find the stock OEM weights anywhere? I also realize this is not really something that the consumer is supposed to remove and something that is usually done on the tour van, but I'm a single digit handicapper that likes his equipment clean and custom like the pros. Any help would be appreciated!

why not just hot melt it? sometimes the heavier weight will change the center of gravity on that head...

I am very much interested, too. Perhaps someone can confirm, but are these called TPS screws?

Just snagged a tool:

Where did you get the wrench? Wherever you got it from should have the screws too. Sometimes you can find aftermarket versions on eBay too.

The wrench is actually a bit that goes onto the existing R9 wrenches.

Pretty handy. I found that on ebay. But did not find the three prong swing weight plugs. I only found your typical MWT or TLC weights. I guess this one is tour van only. They show adding a swing weight to a R9 460 driver in the video below, pretty cool. Man, I wish I had access to that van. Oh well, looks like I'll have to resort to hot melting, lead tape or a shaft tip weight. It was worth a try and thanks for the responses!

Here is what they sent me about 2 years ago so who knows if this is still any good info

Scott does have the ability to change that R9 TaylorMade back weight. He charges $20 for a replacement weight and $40 to Hot Melt a head. It sounds like the weight alone should give you the 4-5 grams of weight you are looking for. Scott’s hours are typically 10-5 on Monday-Friday. We will be more than happy to get this work done anytime! Thanks.

Make sure they send you new ferrule washers with the weights.

Sometimes they can be messed up after removal.

I have the tool and had weights when I had R9 gear.

It looks like Double Eagle has been acquired by Edwin Watts Golf last year
