  • Hot melt driver - recommendations needed

    I’m getting a new shorter shaft (44.75”) for a sim2 driver (down from 45.75”). Wanted to get hot melt for the rear heel side to give a high trajectory and draw bias and bring the swing weight back up. Any recommendations in the GTA who does an awesome job at hot melting drivers? Also what’s the cost ballpark wise.

    Did you give some lead tape a go before going this route?

          If no lead tape you can tape coins to test it.
          A Nickel or Two dimes = ~ 2.5 swing weight points.

            I used to use pennies - less expensive!

              Didn't include pennies since they have been out of circulation.
              2 pennies = 2.5 swing weight points

                  No, but personally, I would stick to lead tape - much easier to fix or adjust and doesn't involve "invasive surgery".

                    I’ve had a number of clubs hot melted and all done by Modern Golf. Love the feel and sound. Make sure you fine tune everything with lead tape as others have said then when you are happy with the performance get it done. I typically play all my woods short.....44.75”, 42.5”, and a hybrid at 40” with a swing weight of D2-3 for all of them. Also be aware of certain head weights from different manufacturers as companies like Ping usually have heavy heads while Taylormade, callaway etc are in the lighter range.

                    cant remember the price I haven’t had anything done in a while

                    And also remember it’s permanent......

                        FYI the chemical MEK will dissolve hot-melt.
                        It will be in the paint section of your local hardware store -> Home Depot, Canadian Tire, etc.

                        While experimenting I had some weights fall into the weight port of my Driver and they got stuck to some hot-melt that was on the face inside. I used a small funnel and poured some MEK in there, let it sit for several hours, then out poured a milky fluid. I got the weight out, but then the head was 2g lighter with the hot-melt no longer in there. I did not notice a sound or impact feel difference, but other applications of hot-melt might, so be aware of that down-side.

                          be cautious with that stuff ,and use rubber gloves(a must) It has a deleterious consequence on your nervous system if absorbed through the skin.
                          It is used as an industrial degreaser primarily for Milspec machined parts.

                            ^^^ I checked in the side affects when you made mention of that last year. If it was that bad it wouldn't be for sale as an "over-the counter" solvent. The nervous system issue is with prolonged or chronic exposure, probably no worse than anything else you can buy in the paint thinner or paint stripping sections. I'm sure all if it is nasty stuff for long-term use / exposure.

                              I do believe they say it’s $50 charge for Hot Melt at either MG or TXG ! I was thinking about getting the gun and glue from Golfworks see how that works ? Relatively cheap plus if you put too much in you can always get different weights for most of the Adjustable Drivers these days.
