Are the adjustable hostel golf club tools interchangeable amongst different

5 posts in this topic

I purchased a titleist 910f without a tool and a Nike covert with the tool, can i use the Nike tool on the titleist club head? Does anybody know if any of the club manufacturers share the tools? They all look pretty similar.

*Update* to this thread.

This is incorrect advice.  The manufacturers don't recommend using other brand's tools, but after speaking to a sales person at Golf Galaxy, he just laughed and said that they are all basically the same.  To prove the point, he grabbed clubs from 3 different clubs demo bins (Nike, Titleist, Taylor Made) made adjustments to each using a TM tool and proceeded to hit balls with each and said, that he only carries the one tool with him and they have not had any failures as a result of the tool yet.

I have used my nike tool on my titleist club with NO ill effects.

Just because the sales person at Golf Galaxy is lazy doesn't mean that the tools "should" be used on different manufacturers clubs.  These tools have a built in torque settings which could be different for each manufacturer.

You are correct - the Torque settings could be different, and it wouldn't suprise me if they were.  However, I have found that in practice, if the shoe fits... (and in the case of the titleist and Nike, it's the same nut size)

FYI - here is a thread from the "other" golf forum, where people have tested and the TM white tool that is designed for shafts (not the yellow that is designed for club head weights) and the titleist tool both torque to 40#/in.  In effect, the tools ARE the same.

    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      Stop saying that! Bingo.  To think that Erik or Mike has it in for you (or anybody else who starts a swing thread on here and gets offended) would mean that you'd have to start under the premise that they have extra time on their hands to spend goofing around and picking on strangers for no reason.  Fact is, if either of them (or, for that matter, about 99.99% of any of the regulars on this site) is posting on a swing thread that is not their own, they are trying to help that person. Remember that throughout the course of the conversation and it should be pretty difficult to draw the conclusions you've drawn. In your case, Tony, you got too defensive and started attacking them.  Despite whether or not you liked what you heard, they were offering (free) advice and they were answering your questions. Take Bill's advice and step back, take a deep breath, and move on.  And stick to one coach to avoid the confusion as well.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      A PGA Tour player's game is optimized to do well on the kinds of courses they play, where conditions are fairly uniform from hole to hole and week to week. Their proximity would not change significantly playing on different greens - it may even suffer slightly if they couldn't adjust well, or if some greens released while others plugged and sucked back. Additionally, as noted, bumpy greens decrease make percentages, so even if they were a foot closer, they might actually take the same or more putts. Same answer as above. Proximity might even suffer due to poorer conditions, failure to adjust, differing conditions hole to hole, etc. I'm not going to guess, and it's off topic anyway. I was just quickly pointing out that scratch doesn't mean they average the course rating. They don't. Only in their 10 best rounds. Of course. But most of a course rating is still the distance. If it's wide open with no rough, no trees, and huge greens, it'll be lower, but not a lot. 67, 66.7, something like that, yeah. But not 61. Not 59. Not 63 very often, either. Studies have shown this to be the case. Players of all ability levels, given time to adjust, putt better on faster, smoother greens than slower (and ostensibly bumpier) greens.
    • My Swing (Jeremie Boop)
      I'm glad you mentioned that, because that reminds me that is how I was hitting those much better impact positions originally earlier this week. I'll combine the feel I'm using for the hand path with the slow start and speeding up of hands on the way down.
    • When is the weather "too bad" to play?
      Thunderstorms and heat index near 100 or more.
    • Reading Greens
      The best tool to use when you're reading greens is your feet. Walk the putt off and feel what the green is doing under you feet. We have a great a ability to detect when we're walking up or downhill or on an incline. Sometimes this is more reliable than using your eyes.
