Does anyone know how to get that silver weight out of the back of the head so can insert some cotton balls in the head to dampen sound??  Thanks

Torx t20 security bit, got it at Sears. I also went with the cotton balls since i didnt want to wait around to have someone hot melt it and take a chance of it getting messed up.

In the Wade Liles video from the GolfWRX trip to Doral, I think he mentions 20 in-lbs, or half the torque of the white wrench.

Did the cotton balls work?
Approximately how many did you use and how much weight did it add to the driver?


I had Will Peoples add hot melt - wish I had him add a few more grams as I am not playing the club at 45.75".  It did mute the sound.  I added lead tape tot he caviities of the sole plate which did deaden the sound more.

Watch your swingweights. I hear the RBZ Tour heads are already pretty heavy.

I wish they were in Europe, ours have come through pretty light.

Actually they're lighter than the R11 or R11S.  I put on a swingweight scale with same shafts and the SW was higher by about 2-3 points in the R11 heads.

Cotton balls weigh about a gram a piece, I think I put 5  in there. It did seem to help although it is still ear piercing hitting range rocks.  I actually might try a few more, I have an X in it and don't mind softening it up a touch.

I think all FCT heads are light because they don't include the weight that the TP adapter adds to the head weight.  I could be wrong though, but that's what I've always assumed.

My head weighed 196 or 197 grams when I got it.  No tip in it either.  I cottonballed mine to 202g.  Took 10 small cottonballs.

So please bear with me as I'm just starting to get into the more "technical" side of golf lol. And the reason for that is because of this site. Anyways, I just got a new RBZ Tour driver, coming from and R7 Superquad. At the end of last year I was playing a light draw consistently, and could work the ball pretty well with my R7. With my RBZ, I'm hitting it farther, but I'm now playing a slight fade, with my miss being slices to the right. I'm not sure if its just early in the year, and I don't quite have my swing back yet, or its because of my new driver. It def plays longer than my old one, about an inch longer, and it def feels lighter. Would adding cotton balls in the head to add a little weight help? And what about cutting the shaft a little bit?

My Tour 9* weighs 198g with the screw in, but no adapter.  The adapter is nominal in weight.  Maybe a gram, or a couple grams.

i had my rbz tour hot melted by will peoples to add a bit of weight and give it a muter sound (the tinniness was a bit annoying!) so i would definitely recommend that, not expensive at all either

7 pack of Torx security bits, including T20, $5.97 at Home Depot (Chicago). HD doesn't carry the Torx security bits individually, not sure about elsewhere. Fits perfectly.

yup. tour t20 security bit. it helps to use a quick burst of heat to help loosen the screw because of the blue loctite taylormade uses.

i added some hot melt to mine and it helped the sound (tour fairway).
