Bonded Hosel vs Adjustable

The following story is from a great source (see Logo upper left and click link below) and my comments on this are for those which have a technical interest in club making and fitting. There is a special inside look at the different designs that effect the proper fitting of golf clubs. This inside look is about Callaway golf and how they address the variables for their different staffers, non-staffers and pass along those adjustments and variables to the public.

http://Bonded Hosel VS Adjustable, Whats the Difference

As a golf club maker I have experienced the variables. Most of the bonded marker’s products are not adjustable (i.e. bendable) so if it is necessary to adjust for the game of a player I usually have to  advise to purchase a separate club. Personally, I have a bonded hosel in my hybrid and have found that by relocating the weights I can affect bias and I have not been required to adjust the lie.

Be advised that not everyone is required to make the adjustments the same way it is explained in the related story.  Some manufactures (very few) have provided the necessary length in the hosel area to allow for bending. The older methods of weight distribution are usually still available in todays clubs but finding a good club maker with the necessary skills to produce the right adjustments is still pretty hard.

Hopefully this will give you some insight into the technical expertise of your local club maker and help you improve your game.

IS YOUR DRIVER THE CORRECT LENGTH?

There are a significant number of studies out there that have discussed the driver length. Recently my friends at GolfWRX issued an article on that subject. It would be better to discuss if speed (which translates to greater speed) is worth the losing control (which translates to accuracy). By personal experience I have found that searching the correct head and shaft is much better that the speed. I have searched and modified my drivers to a controlable length (personal = 44.5″). That length has also included additional changes in the shaft weight which has also affected the swingweight. For more reading on the subject I would suggest the following GolfWRX article:

IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO CUT DOWN YOUR DRIVER
