Justin,

In the video you had to add weight to the head so that when you added the epoxy the
club would be at D3. How did you do that? What did you do to shift the club weight half
a point?

Hi John,

I use a number of ways, either tip weights that go in the tip of the shaft, hosel plugs that go in the head itself, or I add lead powder to my epoxy.

Thanks for your question!

Good video, very well explained and showing the steps necessary to do a good job. I do have a question tho, what brand of epoxy are you using to get such a quick cure time ? Sounds like the club is playable in less than an hour ?
I watch all of the vids you make, thanks for the explanations and advice.

Hi Clint,

Justin uses DP 810 by 3M for epoxy. In most cases the club is playable in 10-15 minutes.

Thanks for your questions!

Justin:

What type of epoxy did you use? What did you use to weight the club? (product name) Did you weight the shaft or the head?

Thanks for the demo.

Hi Robert,

We checked with Justin and uses DP108 by 3M for epoxy. To weight the club he either used a tip weight or a hosel plug.

A tip weight is used to go in the tip of the shaft, and a hosel plug goes in the hosel of the club head. Also, he uses about 1 gram of epoxy on every club, so that goes in the head.

Thanks for your questions!
