Thanks in advance.

Man, if BFG doesn't do it, I don't know anyone else who does...

I've since gone down the poor man's route and gotten myself lead tape so I can weigh down my own clubs

Yeap.. thought about the lead tapes but since the weights on the Newports are replaceable, it be neater.

Have asked Titleist about this earlier. Rick said the service could be available in Singapore come June. Keeping fingers crossed.

just wondering since it the weight is replaceable, why wouldn't provide a mean for the users to change the weight themself, but rather than to send it to Titleist ?

just wondering....hmmm ... confused confused

The Studio Select line has interchangeable weight screws in the bottom of the putters. Why not allow golfers to swap the weights on themselves?

The whole idea behind the weights is for us to get it just right. For many years, putter companies had one head and simply made it in three different lengths—33", 34" and 35". But that changes the weight in a similar way that cutting down or lengthening your driver would.

We don't want someone to have a kit that would change the weight and make the putter not ideal. We have the recipe here that tells us what adjustments to make for every inch that you change, and the swing-weight points that you either gain or lose. But as I said earlier, I just really want to get it right.

Now, I believe that putters can be a little heavier, or possibly a little lighter, but not so much that it changes the rhythm and timing of your transition stroke from the backswing to the forward swing. If a putter is too light, you can take the putter back too far to gain the momentum, or you have to hit at it more to compensate for the weight loss.

pulled from some website, supposedly from a 'ask the expert' session to the man himself.

Newport 1.5 @ 33.5" with 350gm (2 x 15gm weights). Looking at changing to 360gm (2 x 20gm).
