hey TT

just wondering what my swingweight would be at for by 909D2 cut to 44.5 with stock matrix ozik xcon 6 regular shaft. I have a midsize winn lite firm grip on it 28grams weight.

I have personal experience with lightweight grips.   Winn Excel RF midsize is 43g and increases swingweight by almost 2 points vs the Lamkin Crossline or Golf Pride Tour Velvet (both 52g).  Winn Lite Dri-Tac oversize is 26g so that is just barely over a 5 swingweight point change vs the 52g.

My 910F and 910H clubs are 1/2" shorter than standard so I use the Excel RF.  My history with 5 woods is that 41.5" shaft length is the best.  21H around 39.5" and 27H around 38.5".

I have a Winn Lite Dri Tac oversize grip on a 2007 Burner HT Draw driver with a 44.5" shaft length. Before I got the Titleist fww and hybrid, I played with Burner fairway and Superfast hybrids and used the Dri Tac grips.   TM has a rather upright lie angle and the shafts are a bit long so I cut them by 1" to get them to swing properly.

 

 

great thanks. to get this down to say D4 what would i have to do? would extra couple wraps of tape bring it down a bit??

The Winn Excel RF would make it D2-D3.  It would take 7 grams of grip tape to go from D6-D4 (this is using a swingweight calculator).  The other option is to take 4 grams off the head (standard weight is 7g - don't know if Titleist makes a 3g weight).

Other option is use the Excel RF grip and change the head weight to 9g.

Most golfers really can't tell a difference of  2 swingweight points.
