Taylormade Torque Wrench Question

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Ok so this is gonna sound stupid, but the Taylormade Torque Wrench that they claim is "universal", is not; unless I am truly challenged.

 

I was playing around with my R1 yesterday and adjusting some stuff then I wanted to do the same on my RBZ 3 rescue. Didn't work at all. The shape of the keyhole is the same but just looks a touch smaller on the RBZ.

 

Again, I feel dumb needing to post about this, but I have searched around the internet and haven't found any complaints about it. In fact, I have found tons of post selling the "universal TM torque wrench" perfect for R11, R11s, R1, RBZ clubs.

 

Does anybody know anything about this? Would my wrench work on a RBZ driver, just not the rescue club? I feel dumb.

Odd... I have an old R7 with torque wrench, an R11s Driver and fairway wood with their respective wrenches. They seem to work across all of them. Is it possible that the slot is just filled with schmaltz or something?

I thought that was the case but its really not. Legitimately the RBZ has a smaller keyhole; very slight. The wrench just sits atop it. Its cleaned out and perfect condition not like warped or bent or stripped

Any chance that the hybrid is a counterfeit?

China ran out of the big star bolts, but they had others they could use....Had this problem with a used club off Ebay... so you will need to purchase the 110-piece Craftsman Handy-man Tool-kit ($199 but then you have tools!) which comes with the 3.5 millimeter star bit to wrench your club, or go to a NAPA  store and they can sell you the correct bit for like 4 bucks. Yes it is frustrating especially if you strip the star pattern. The money spent to extract that screw... pays for the tool kit.....Hurray for China!

Funny, I bought 2 wrenches, 1 for my Titleist 3 wood F2, and my Callaway driver. The titleist wrench was 25.00, and the Callaway was 10.00, and these aren't torque wrenches, they just have stupid looking plastic handles on them. Just another way for them to make even more $$$ off us..

Yes ...they shall get us coming and going....I have the $10 plastic handle ones also. and of course if you buy off Ebay it is typically "wrench and head cover not included"
