    Can someone tell me, if I have my TS3 at 44.75", .75" shorter than stock, what weight should it come with to get it back or close to stock SW? I was told by the shop I ordered from that Titleist does their best to match it up even without specifying but something doesn't feel right... feels a little light if anything. Thanks for any help.

    If you specify the swing weight as part of the order. Titleist will adjust the weight or give you options such as a different grip. Calling Titleist is an option.

    Thanks, I ask only because I have my TS3 in hand and it is 44 3/4", the way I ordered. My shop told me that Titleist is good about matching the swing weight without even asking, but it looks like that has not happened here. Bit of a bummer as I am having a lot of trouble with this driver. Hit my G400 and it's night and day vs the TS3.

    When I was fitted, I was told that if I went a 1/2 inch shorter to a 45 " shaft, then it was recommend to get the 2 grm heavier weight in the head, but that was with the TS2.
  5. Good to know Barry, I got fit into the TS3, but they didn’t have a 45” shaft. Fit into a 45.5” with a -2 weight. Fit into a Hzdrus Smoke 5.5 stiff, great results at 8 mph ball speed and 21 yards of carry over my 917.
  6. Do you know how heavy of a weight they added to your club head ? I think if you take 3/4" off you might need around another 8 grams added to the head to keep the swing weight the same.

    It has the +2 weight in the sleeve.. I am thinking it should have been heavier... I also just figured it would have been taken care of... live and learn

    3/4 inch length reduction = 4.5 point swing length reduction needing 9 grams to offset. When clubs are ordered at shorter or longer lengths the desired swing weight needs to be specified as Titleist can't anticipate the reason why the specific length was requested. The problem really goes back to whoever ordered the club for you- if they were competent they should have discussed the effect of the reduction in length and then ordered to the swing weight you like and/or fits your swing.

    I would get this club to a shop and weigh it before assuming you need so much weight(9 grams) to offset. Mine is cut down 1 inch and playing at 44.5 inches and I need 3 grams to get it back to D2(My Preferred SW). The weight of the shaft, where the weight is in the shaft, the weight of your grip, all play into the actual swing weight. If you are indeed in Long Beach the RD in Seal Beach has a scale available to check it.
