First, I have seen the weight ports that plug into the top of the shaft, what I am looking for is something to make adjustments at the driving range. I have tape and adhesive tungsten squares that I can add while at the driving range to increase swing weight, but I was wondering if anyone has any tips to back weight the club to bring the swing weight down while at the range.

Not looking for anything expensive as I am just trying to figure out what will feel right for me. Once I determine that, I will figure out a permanent solution. Thanks.

Sounds crazy but.....
take nickels and tape them to the end of the grip=same size and can add or take 1 off at a time-
