Changing the swing weight of your golf clubs is relatively simple. The hard part is understanding what you are doing and why. Swing weight isn't the overall weight of the club but how it feels during the swing. Take a 5-iron for example and one pound of lead tape. The club will weigh the same no matter where you put the tape--but depending on where you put the tape, the feel of the swing will be entirely different.

Instructions

1 Understand that clubs are measured in grams; whether it's the shaft, the head or the grip, everything is understood in gram weighting--except the swing weight. Swing weight has it's own measurements called fulcrum points, starting at A0 to G10. A0 is the lightest and G10 is the heaviest. Letters A through G and numbers 1 through 10 make up the swing weight scale. Standard swing weight for men is about D0, depending on manufacturer.

2 Place your golf club on the swing weight scale and use the slide to determine the swing weight. The scale is used in typical slide scale fashion by sliding a weight up and down the scale till the bar balances by itself.

3 Weigh lead tape to the desired swing weight. The best way to do this is to keep the club on the swing weight scale and take a piece of lead tape that's more then you think you need and peel off the backing. Stick it to the head of the club and weight it. If you don't get the desired swing weight, add or take away lead tape as needed.

4 Stick the lead tape to the back centre of the club head to assure balance. Use a tee to rub it down and mould it better to the shape of the club head. You have now changed your swing weight.

Tips and warnings

Another way to change the swing weight is to add filler materials to inside the head--but that involves taking the head off the club, and you may need to take it to a professional to do that.

You can also change your grip or use a bigger club head. This is the reason big manufacturers are coming out with bigger heads that have bigger sweet spots and are lighter in weight so not to mess with the swing weight of the driver.

If you are doing a set of irons, make sure you change the swing weight of all your clubs to the same weight. Deviation from this can cause differences in feel throughout the set.
