One strip of double sided tape will weigh 2g. So, you will counter balance the club and lose a full swingweight point for every 2 layers (4g) that you add. With him building up to midsize, he is definitely going to notice a difference in the swingweight since it is going to drop by 1.5 to 2 points most likely.
That chart that Qwagmire posted from Golfworks is a good reference. As it states on the top, a layer of masking tape equals 0.10". If you decide to use double sided tape for the build up layers as well which I generally prefer to do, you will need to account for the extra thickness of double sided tape which is about 0.15".
Thanks for the info guys, that charts great. I ended up just putting 1,2,3, and maybe 4 layers on different clubs to see what I liked the feel of the most. I know its funny but two layers felt good. I didnt realize how easily someone could tell an extra later of tape.
Another question that i was wondering, if i were to have used more tape, whats the best way to swing weight. I saw some sort of weights that went into the hosel on golfsmith site. is that the best way and does it only work with certain clubs, as in do the clubs need to be made to allow for this?
