Hi all,
I am playing a ping g400 with tour 65.
I have a tensei ck pro blue 60 tx and wanted to mount it on my g400 head, playing at 44.5 inches.
I made the calculation with the parts I am using and swingweight would have been around d3.

But when assembling the club, before glueing, I calculate a swingweight of C8 using total weight and distance between balance point and the end of the grip.
Is this normal? Didn't think the tensei is counterbalanced.

Should I glued my sleeve like that and then check the SW and adjust with tape if needed?

Thanks for your help

I have a Tensei Pro Blue 60 in a 2016 M2 and it does lower the swingweight by about 2 points compared to other shafts with similar weights I've tried. Mitsubishi doesn't label the Pro Blue as counterbalanced on their website but I think it is.

thanks for your answer!! So I am not that crazy!

Another interesting thing is that the driver mounted with the Tensei is 334g (playing at 44.5") and with the Tour 65, it is 321g (playing at 45.25"). It seems a lot to me since thre should be around an 8g difference between both shafts specs! I

I'm not even sure what you are asking.

If you aren't considering using shaft tip weights in your build it's totally irrelevant if the playing length you want is definitely 44.5". It s just going to come out at a certain SW and you adjust it afterwards. You should never change the length to obtan a certain SW.

You make the club up like you want it then weigh it.  If it's too light add tape or have it hot melted.
