Lost my button, off the RBZ 3W

Recommended Posts

On the sole plate, next to the 'speed slot' the shiny, threaded (?) screw-in button flew off during practice. So what? Should i fill the hole coz the interior seems empty so maybe could fill with sand or dirt. What to do? I'll try the pro shop, maybe buy a new button. If not, maybe use a hunk of lead.

That "button" as you call it is actually a weight. CALL Taylormade and they should take care of you.

How much could such a weight weigh? One, 5, 10 grams?  Will TM tell us the weight?  I can't get another button, not in USA, so thought to plug hole with homemade weight but may not be able to make the weight removable. Am thinking of a solid lead plug, even an old fishing weight carved to fit and screwed in then epoxy over the top. Good idea but how heavy to go? I suppose i could fill the entire cavity with, hmm, what? Squirty foam, tiny glass beads, sand, etc then epoxy the hole.

Update, for what it's worth. I see on Ebay these  buttons for sale, said to be genuine TM for the RBZ and weighing in at 10 grams. Frankly too expensive for me, mostly due to shipping costs. I'll go for the homemade 10g button. If ever i'm back in USA i might call TM but till then i need those extra 40 yds the 10 gms will give me.

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
