Will adding weight in the hosel of a clubhead effect the club playability differently than adding lead tape to the outside?
Adding weight to different parts of a club head can effect playability, but you have to add a lot of weight for it to REALLY effect the playability. 6, 8 even 10 grams will not move the cg enough to make a noticeable, measureable difference in the cg location. Those amounts can effect the feel of the club and if that adjustment helps the clubs feel for you, I wouldn’t worry about any negative “playability” effect. I always prefer the weight on the head instead of in the hosel, but if the lead tape look is not something you like, up to the 8 or 10 grams in the hosel is acceptable.
