Are the adjustable hostel golf club tools interchangeable amongst different

Recommended Posts

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.

    •  I generlly play at two clubs Bradley Park - Nice 18 hole course, well kept mature parkland i can play for £19 on a weekend or 10 holes for a tenner. Great driving range and practice area. Willow Valley - 3 courses. 9 hole, 18 hole intermediate and the championship course (home of the Yorkshire PGA champs). 9 holer is a tenner on the weekends and the inter course is £20. You just cant grumble at the value for monet you get.
    • I prefer sand that is medium I guess. I have trouble with real soft, fine sand because I am not as consistent with how far I hit behind the ball. I think soft sand is less forgiving. I work to play a sand shot similar to a pitch shot, but with lower hands as my Evolvr instructors and Erik have taught me.  My league course has medium sand on the course, but very soft sand in the practice area. My home course has medium sand but no practice area. It's odd, but I never seem to get into the bunkers at my home course. I think I just jinxed myself! 
    • Welcome @afmilboy02! Happy thanksgiving. I tweaked some of your post to make it fit our guidelines for member swings. The one thing we need you to do now is embed the videos- not attach them. In the “How To” dropdown, you’ll see an option for embedding videos.   Under the “Info” dropdown there is an option for Instructional Content.  Great stuff there as well as tips for how to have a good swing thread, including video tips.  Good luck!!!
    •   I've been Playing Golf for: years but just getting back into golf
      My current handicap index or average score is: 90s
      My typical ball flight is: None
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:  Haven't played in a season or so due to work, but getting back into it and have had nothing but issues.  Previously, I was a solid ball striker (few miss hits per round) that shot in the high 80's to low 90's a few lip outs, bad chips, and/or bad drives away from being in low 80's.  With that said, I dont know where that swing went, I literally am struggling to make solid contact with the ball with numerous issues in my swing... hip slide, over back swing, out/in path, pushes left, and fat/thin hits to name a few.  Here are a few vids (removed by moderator as they were attached not embedded)... tips, drills, and advice are welcome.   Thank you!
