    Kim, Good idea about the added weight. Golf stores use powdered lead for custom weighting clubs. I use this as it can be packed into tiny places. I do use CA

      Kim,
      Good idea about the added weight. Golf stores use powdered lead for custom
      weighting clubs. I use this as it can be packed into tiny places. I do use
      CA glue where I can get away with it. Thin epoxy works well also.
