Tried to search and didn’t see anyone ask about this before. When I stopped by GolfWorks, the lead guy in the shop (great dude) mentioned that the torx screw on the back of the TS1 is actually a vent. And for the TS2, the entire back panel in the cavity is also a vent. He suggested this element of the design was there for playability reasons (although I can’t recall any specifics). So I have a few questions…
- Can you confirm that the screw (TS1) / back panel (TS2) are in fact “vents”?
- If so, what is the vent’s purpose? Is it solely a manufacturing process inclusion, or is it functionally intended to impact playability?
- Are there any issues with submerging TS1 or TS2 irons in water when cleaning?
The last question is what I’m most curious about (assuming they are vents). I normally soak my club heads in water and dawn when I clean them. And was a little apprehensive about soaking the TS1 if the vent provides a way for liquid to work its way into the club head.
