J13, may I ask....in your opinion, how many grams of melt does it take to slightly impact flight bias? I have the G400max in 9 and I'm looking to make it slightly more fade biased with some melt. Also thinking the sound could be improved a smidge as a side effect. More interested in the slight fade bias than the sound change. 3g out toward the toe? A local builder I believe is experienced in melt, but wanted to get your thoughts. Many thanks!!!! Great thread and fun to follow.
Yeah 3g won't do anything for bias. It will and can effect sound though. I would say if you want to add bias see if you can put a lighter weight in the rear then you would probably have to add around 6-10g depending on head and setup. Also make sure your local builder knows how to melt and uses REAL hotmelt. Can't tell you how many guys use a local builder who uses rat glue or rattle stop. REAL HOTMELT only otherwise you are going to experience drying, cracking, and rattle at some point. Ask him to show you what he uses. The reason i got a hotmelt setup was because 99% of builders have ZERO clue how to hotmelt or access to a real setup and melt.
Great tips! Silly question, is there a brand name for the real hot melt? So when he shows me, I know it is what I want to see? I would likely end up in the low end (6g) of your estimate, as I don’t really want to change the club much. Two local places do it I believe, on is Club Champion and the other is called Novo golf. Thank you for entertaining my questions! Cheers!
