There is a rattle sound whenever I tap the driver head on the ground.  What typically cause this?  It's a fairly new Superfast TP that I've only had for about 2 months.

Only way to know for sure is to pull the shaft.  I would speculate that it might be a small piece of epoxy that has broken off from the shaft, and is now making its presence known.  I just had to have the shaft on my 9015 pulled for the same reason, and the piece of epoxy was actually in the shaft, and not the head.

If it's new, retrun it for a replacement.  If you are sure the rattle is in the head, heat the sole with a hair dryer then tap it to get the piece stuck in the ratglue in the head.  Let it sit till it cools and problem solved.  If there is ANYthing wrong with the shaft, make them replace the club.  Assuming you bought it from a retailer that will warranty it for you.

How hot does it need to be, I've got the same in issue in a non TP SF, there is rattle stop in the head, but the rattle has reoccurred, how long should I heat it with a hair dryer for the stuff to melt again and hopefully take care of the rattle one and for all.

I also wondered if you heated the rattle stop stuff to the point that it got pretty thin, could you pour and it out of the hosel and would the rattle likely come out with it?  Just a thought, but I've got to do something, this rattle will make you crazy.

I have the R9 Super-tri and and i had this bad rattle in the head whenever it tapped it against my hand or the ground and I was just going to return it but it turned out one of the screw weights was loose an as soon as I tightend it it went away... worth a try

Yup, hairdryer. Just did this with a 3w. Works like a charm.

Send it to Tm, they should replace it. My freind had the same problem and they replaced his.

Shaft has been changed by someone other than TM so I'm thinking that they are not going to take ownership of the problem.
