Has anyone tried this. GW has a 4oz (113gms) bottle of Head Tacking Adhesive for $7.99. IIRC, this is a gummy compound that was injected into clubheads to stop rattles caused by loose particles inside. It seems to me you could use this stuff just like hotmelt without have to invest in the actual hotmelt gun. It doesn't move around, so it will not conflict with the RoG.

Opinions??

I'm no expert in this but I have used rattle stop in the way you mention.  It does the trick in terms of upping the swing weight.  As far as I know, the stuff never actually sets so it can move around over time (for instance clubs left in a hot car trunk for a while could cause the mass of rattle stop to move to the low point).  To combat this I set the club head in hot water in its upright position to move it all back to the sole.  I don't know if it moves enough to really warrant this step, but it satisfies my OCD.

If you have ever used the Rattle Stop, you quickly notice how little heat it takes to make it "mobile".  I know that my trunk gets hotter on the way to the golf course in the summer than that stuff can withstand.  I think it all ends up in the low spot of the head cavity each time it gets warm.

I've used it for SW in a couple fw wood heads. Squeeze in some rattle stop and a little tungsten powder to taste (desired SW). I had my concerns about it migrating but havn't noticed any problems. Is it the best method? probably not. Does it work? seems to do alright.

How much does the stuff weigh? If you want to add 5g do you need to put a heap of it in the head?

Similar to adhesive. 4oz bottle is not real big and 1oz = 28gms, so there's plenty to test with so that you know how long to squeeze to get what you want.  Not sure how it effects the sound though. May try some with my R11, just to see.

Bump.
Any views on this stuff.
I would like to add a little weight to an R11 and quieten the sound a little.

Even without heat, if you add more than 5-6 grams of rattlestop, you can feel it moving around just by shaking the driver head violently in your hand.

I've done it before but the way to do it is use very very little rattle stop and lead or tungsten powder this way the rattle stop doesn't move and you don't have to use as much.

Ideally hot melt is better but this works as well if you are adding 5g or less.
