Rattling sound in driver

There is a small rattling sound in my 460cc titanium driver. The outside is fine. Is there a way to fix this or is it ruined?

Loose epoxy in the head. Heat it up, remove the shaft, clean out the loose bodies, re-epoxy the club, pop the shaft back in.

Unless of course things have radically changed with materials.

Won't impact the performance of the club (atleast in my experience).

Do what Bo said.

I think trying to fix yourself is aggressive. It won't impact performance but if it bugs you have a club repair shop do the work.....assuming you like the club.

Like ship said, don't do it yourself. Take it to Golfsmith or PGA Superstore or whatever and get it fixed. Can't imagine they will charge you more then $20 to do it.

I wasn't assuming he was going to do it himself.

Depending on the type of driver could be a knock off which has more foam like material in the head which will deterate over time and start to rattle.

I'd assume this would cost $10 or less at Golfsmith and if it costs more I need to get into the club repair business.

why would anyone build a golf course near a landfill like oakland? The place looks like death city from a distance.

did you have those clubs for awhile or less than a month?

I'd assume few gold stores would take a shaft out and put a shaft in, even if it is the same shaft for less than $10. Dick's Sporting Goods charges you $3 per club labor just to put on a grip, and while not that complicated to take the shaft out, clean it, and put it back, certainly more complicated than changing a grip.

Changing your own grips is fun. Changing somebody's grips you don't know is work.
