Optivibe Systems:



TourLock Golf’s Opti-Vibe technology has taken back-weighting to the next level by making it simple, interchangeable, and affordable for every golfer.

The advantage of the TourLock Opti-Vibe Precision Internal Shaft Weight System is that swing weight and MOI can be adjusted by simply moving the Opti-Vibe weight up or down inside the shaft. This allows an individual to make their club feel head heavy or head light depending on their preferences. The center of gravity of the weights can be positioned very accurately and then locked into position using compression seal.

There are some diy options out there for counter balancing your putter. It can be done really cheap with some washers and other cheap parts from your local home improvement store. I think some people use something called a clevis pin. Stick it in the shaft and regrip.

@ RTHRBGLFN..... Clevis pins may be purchased in various diameters & lengths, 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 1/2", etc.. The diameter hole can be matched to a corresponding twist drill, For instance, weighting a putter, one could easily drill a 3/8" hole in the top of the putter grip and glue the 3/8" clevis pin in place using silicone or cyancrylate (super glue). The plain head of the clevis or a washer shimmed clevis will prevent the pin from falling into the cavity of the shaft. Effectively one isnt required to regrip using this method.

FWIW

I dont, wish we could directly purchase a golf swing off the shelf.... at least to learn from.

I sure would like to have a drug that reproduces the stimulating feel of a solid pure golf shot @ impact .....
