I bought an RBZ Xcon 6 shaft and was going to install a Ballance Certified butt weight.
Went to cut out the end of the grop but the tool wouldn't fit. Tried poking a small screwdriver up the hole in the end of the grip but it was a no go.
I didn't want to pull the grip but on doing so i discovered a plastic blanking plug up the end off the shaft.
anyone heard of this?

Just called TM in Cal and the said it is to reduce vibration.
Unlike TM in the UK who said it was a fake!! :-)

I remember reading something about this, I'll see if I can find it.

Hi john, there was a small plug, a bit like a blanking plug you would put on the end of push bike handlebars.
PS it's not there now :-)

I haven't seen too many TM that didn't have a plug. I've got some older TM heads here and every one had a plug in it.

It's really not a bad idea, a cork works well also, no weight to speak of; but does take away any vibration that can occur from time to time. :beer:

I invariably use several each day. Routine fitting. Problem is that they never stay in place. My wife invariably spits them out.
