I was gifted a super clean set of Wilson Staff Dynapowers (c. 73-75). They have “Ultralite” R-flex shafts with pristine Wilson genuine leather grips on the 2-PW. For reference the 8-iron weighs 15.6 oz.
The back of the clubhead comes with a disc. I’ve read that it’s possible to remove this disc with a golf shoe spike tool. Apparently there is a cavity with a washer and some type of weight system inside. Anyone have any knowledge of this system?
This may sound crazy but I was thinking, in regards to club weighting, about using the tungsten putty used on pinewood derby cars. I was going to stuff some underneath the sole plate of my Spaulding model 56 driver…there’s a little space next to the original lead slug that would fit a pinch of this putty.
So, back to the Wilson “Adjusta-Back”. If there is some space in a cavity behind the disc, I was thinking about stuffing it with the tungsten putty as well.
Also, I realize the shafts may not be the optimal ABS specs, but trying to remove and reuse those amazing grips to add stiffer shafts may be a mistake/challenge for my novice repairman skills. The leather grips appear to be one piece. I’m wondering if they can be blown off?
I was further thinking, if possible, of removing the red hosel plug and adding the tungsten putty and then reinstalling the plug.
I’ve never worked with this club before. Any input and/or advice on the disc and plug would be appreciated. Also on the tungsten putty idea.
