I doubt it...

Its not just about adjusting, what happens if it loosen eiji? The way this is design is not like nakashima where the thread is in reverse, which means, te more u hit It, the tighter it gets.

My point is also not about adjusting on the course, the point is adjust on the range.

U want the fw? 10% of the retail price loh. Smile


was addressing kian with that comment about wanting adjust-ability to fix his one shot left one shot right swing.


Yes i know u need the wrench for tightening.

and 10% off retail, why not I sell u 20% off retail.

I think its a good idea to do the adjustment on the course too, because its very different to hit it off real turf and artificial mats. As long as you dun hole up the flights and its ok with the flight mates, then u can jolly well go ahead.

Rather unfortunate that such a good product (that comes with an equally huge cost) does not come with the tool to make it work as advertised. I was chatting with a retailer about this yesterday and he said "most people don't buy the FW unless they have the driver already." Obviously from the posts in this thread, that is not the case.

As an aside, the wrench is not provided for purchases in the US as well, so I guess this is not something we should pin squarely on Acushnet Singapore's head. It'd certainly be a nice gesture if they could throw it in though - and it would also improve the perception of the brand name to no end.

Hi Daniel, h r u man?

Anyway, I think it could be a good business decision. If there isn't much to be made out of these things, and those from hardware store can do the job, it could be that Titleist is just being practical. BTW, this wrench comes in special torque limit? I veguely remembered TM has this funny thing about certain wrench has certain toque limit so that you dun over-tighten the screw or something. Then again, I think TM is damn solid in its marketing to create needs. Wink

Hmmmm... Valid point again, over tightening. So even if we use tm wrenches, may not fit the bill cos the torque rating may be different between the two brand cos the screw maybe different although they have the same wrench size.

that is not a fair assumption ZX, speaking for myself, i find the FW good but the driver a piece of crap... so how?

also, titleist is then indicative that customers who wish to buy only hybrid + FW are not welcomed?

i think that is basically a snub to all would be FW + hybrid users...
