Lead Tape

I am debating on experimenting with lead tape on my 3wood. Questions I have are will it come back off easily enough? Where should I put it? My big problems with the 3wood, this one and every other I've tried, are skying it off the tee and wormburners off the fairway. I have the weight system in my R7, if this is any indication, set for a high launch. I still hit very low trajectory drives. I get better loft with my higher irons. The 3wood is a TM200 Steel with a steel stiff shaft.

yeah, you can get it back off. I'd put it back and low if i were you. I just cut down, regripped, and added lead tape to a Snake Eyes 600T 3 wood, it's in the bag next time i play. Actually, i really cheaped out on it too, and used lead tape i had already taken off my Steelhead Plus after i realized i put too much on. That's right, i reused lead tape

So put it on the sole of the club? How are you cutting down the shafts? From the grip end right? I may take a little off the 3w too. My goal is to have a club I can hit rather than the 5w. I can smoke that 5w though. As you've seen firsthand, my driver inconsistancy really hurts on bad days.

Yeah, just ripoff the grip, cut the shaft, and regrip. I only did it to cut it down to normal 3 wood length, as it was an inch or two overlength

I may do it. I liked the way your driver felt with the shorter shaft, much more controllable. I'll try gripping down first before I break out the sawsall. :) I need more $$. There are like $600 worth of clubs I want on Ebay right now.

I've got a couple of strips of lead tape on the back of my Hogan 5iron & 8iron, in order to get the swingweight to D2, along with the rest of my clubs, excluding the SW & LW. All of the irons are Hogan CFTs, but the 5 & 8 measured (and felt) way light at D0. Ben Hogan would be disappointed at the quality control of these clubs.

Lead tape will do nothing for the problems you describe,you need a lesson and some practice time
