WOODS & HYBRIDS ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
The Wishon Golf EQ1 hybrids are available in #4, 5, or #6 hybrid heads. They are designed to be assembled to the same length as the EQ1 single length irons you may be building, or they can be built to any lengths longer than the single length irons up to conventional hybrid lengths of #4-38.5”, #5-38”, #6-37.5”. ½” over those lengths is also possible with a lightweight graphite shaft (≤75g).
NOTE! – The EQ1 hybrids are designed with a 0.335” hosel bore to accept any of the Wishon Golf S2S hybrid shaft designs, or any hybrid shaft with a 0.335” parallel tip. The ferrule of choice to use with a 0.335” hybrid shaft from Diamond Golf is the Wishon ferrule model #121-HY-IR.
The Wishon Golf EQ1 fairway woods are available in #3, 4, 5 and 7 wood heads. They are designed to be assembled to their own specific single length options, or they can be built to any lengths longer than the single length options up to conventional fairway wood lengths of #3-43”, #4-42.5”, #5-42”, #7-41”. ½” over those lengths is also possible with a lightweight graphite shaft (≤65g).
The EQ1 fairway woods are also designed with a 0.335” hosel bore to accept any of the Wishon Golf 0.335” parallel tip wood shaft designs, or any other 0.335” tip shaft for woods. The ferrule of choice to use with EQ1 fairway woods from Diamond Golf is the Wishon ferrule model #121-WD-STD.
There are four different weight bores in each EQ1 to allow the assembly of the woods and hybrids to normal ranges of swingweight/MOI for a wide variety of lengths. The hosel weight bore and toe sole weight bore both hold up to a maximum of a 9g tungsten weight. The twin rear sole weight bores both hold a maximum of a 6g tungsten weight to allow a total of 30g of weight to be added to each EQ1 hybrid or wood head.
The following weight plugs are available from Diamond Golf International:
INSTALLATION OF WEIGHTS & MEDALLION COVERS
1. When multiple weights are required in the assembly, it is best to balance the position of the weights to keep the Center of Gravity from moving too much. Dividing up the weight to be added equally between the hosel weight bore and toe/sole weight bore or just using the rear weight bores only will always keep the CG from moving any measurable amount.
2. If a slightly higher flight is desired for a player with a later release, use of the twin rear weight bores only will move the CG back in the head to achieve that.
3. Always put a dab of epoxy on the bottom and sides of the weight bore before installation of each weight plug. Push firmly down on the weight to make the epoxy ooze up the sides of the weight plug for the most secure installation.
4. Always use a thin coating of epoxy on the upper ledge of the sole weight bores to improve the ability of the covering medallion to remain secure. Always peel off the paper backing over the back adhesive of the medallion before pressing into place on top of the thin epoxy coating.
5. The half-moon shape medallion covering the twin rear weight bores is curved to fit the cavity on top of the weight bores. THERE IS A DIFFERENT MEDALLION FOR THE HYBRID HEADS AND FOR THE FAIRWAY WOOD HEADS. The medallion covering the rear weight bores on the hybrid has a RED DOT above the Wishon Golf name. The medallion covering the rear weight bores on the fairway has no marking above the Wishon Golf name. Additional toe/sole and rear weight bore medallions can be ordered from Diamond Golf International.
6. Always install the tungsten weights with the slot end up. To remove a tungsten weight, heat the epoxy holding the weight in the bore with a small butane torch. After 20-30 secs of heating twist the weight loose with a flat-head screwdriver inserted into the slot on the end of the plug. Brass weights can be removed by drilling the weight with a 9/32” (7mm) drill bit.
7. If you are using the hosel weight bore and one or more of the sole weight bores, we recommend installing the weights and medallions in the sole weight bores first. Then install the weight in the hosel weight bore followed by installation of the shaft. It is easier to install weights in the sole weight bores before the shaft is installed.
