Taylormade Torque Wrench Question

Recommended Posts

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

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"

    • Yeah, beginners clubs go through a lot of abuse. Try getting a used set of good clubs. There are quite a few places that have those as well. The thing about the Zevo clubs was their lifetime warranty. I don't know if they still have it, but as a Golfsmith product they were warranted for life. I got shafts replaces and head glued on many times for free. The name brand products like TM or Callaway required shipping back to the manufacturers and could take a couple weeks. Shop around a bit.
    • Hogwash! I bet these people aren't saying Vince WIlfork isnt an athlete. And all he did was stand up and shuffle a few yards most of the time. You tell them to go hit 1000 balls and then go play 72 holes if they dont think golf is a athletic pursuit. If that doesn't work - get a super soaker, fill it with vinegar and water, and make them pay for their ignorance. 
    • Just because there is a maximum score rule, that doesnt mean people will follow it. Same thing with pace of play. I have played tons of courses that have the pace of play guidelines printed on the scorecard, but rounds take over that amount of time because there is nobody from the course out there actively enforcing the pace of play.  And in my own personal experience of non tournament golf, I have NEVER seen someone to come back up to the tee and hit another tee shot once they got out to the fairway/rough and couldnt find their ball. Based on my experience, people coming back up to the tee and rehitting/not hitting a provisional is not the reason for excessively slow rounds.
    • That's good to know. I've been debating between getting this Zevo complete set, or trying to find a decent quality iron set $150 to $250, that I can use with the current driver I have. Only problem is trying to find one new that isn't poor quality, or one used that doesn't look like it's been beaten to hell and back. Gotta love it! 
    • I haven't watched it, but I've read many of the comics when I was a kid. So, heightened other senses. . .Tradeoffs. Hmm, I wonder how much of that applies to golf?   Another topic for the healing lounge. Golf was insulted by a co-worker who doesn't know much about golf today. I told my co-worker that many of my partners think I can't hit far until I start hitting far on the course or range, because I look kind of dumpy. The real reason is that many have known me for years and knew me when I didn't drive this far on average, which actually only happened recently. Then he said "No golfer looks athletic, they all look out of shape. They're not athletes. You look more athletic than any of them." Then I told him about long drive, and he admitted watching some blurb on TV about that and stated "Yes, but that's not golf. Is it?" So, he agreed that long drivers look like athletes, while still stating that PGA Tour players don't look anything resembling athletes. You know what? I agreed with him, because it's kind of true. . . I was suddenly reminded of one of my recent post about "Fattest golfers on the PGA Tour." vs the "Fittest golfers on the PGA Tour."  Off the top of my head, only Rory, Sergio and Camillo. In recent pictures, Dustin looks like a twig. Tiger has skinny calves. Golf needs to heal from this mornings barrage of "We are not athletes." . . .
