Honestly,

Go buy one or ask to borrow/use one. It will also depend if you are a tart and don't like lead tape. You could try and do it mathematically but there are variables that can sway things a touch.

dry build each club (you will need a spare grip that you are willing to split so you can "install it" for measuring swingweight) and then use....

to estimate what the sw/wt will be.....then you can make adjustments based on what the calculator tells you (its pretty accurate) before gluing everything together.

What Nick said - I just use a cheap set of kitchen scales and a tape measure.

If you need any weights for the heads then let me know - I've got an assortment of bits and pieces if you need anything.

Or make one  :thumbup:

With what others have said, use the math and check again after. Nothing worse than building something that doesn't feel right.

Does this mean that the Ben Blank fitting studio won't be able to change loft and lie angles? 

I'm considering cancelling my appointment...
