I hit 2 drives with @ChrisEdwards' 45" driver and absolutely smoked it. Might have to go full ego and start spraying it everywhere again with the occasional stripe...

To add just weights is guessing. I have built hundreds of golf clubs, over 20 years. It is neccessary to have a swing weight scale to measure total weight. Example:  Golf club has total weight 325 grams. subtract approx. 50 -52 grams, standard grip with tape. Get the exact shaft weight from specs. It might say 60 on the shaft, but real shaft weight might be 69. Subtract shaft weight, let's say 67 grams after trimmed. Shaft & grip will weigh approx. 119. Subtract 119 from 325. Head weight would be 206. If swing speed is constant 100-105 measured. max. head weight can be about 215 max., after that distance loss will occur. Which explains how someone can hit a 3 wood as far as a driver. 3 woods, vary at 210 to 215grams. I hope this answers some people's confusion of what to do. Swing weight  is just a standard for measuring.
