The MOST IMPORTANT component in a golf club is the SHAFT, it transfers your energy
to the club head and in turn the ball.
Golf shafts are known by letter or number designations indicating flex, the PROBLEM
is the golf industry has no standards for flex, just because a shaft says R on it
does not mean it will be a regular!
Then you have to consider, Bend profile, Torque, Balance, Shaft Spine,...
We deal with all the major shaft manufacturers from around the world.
Every custom built club we build has the shaft Spine Aligned for maximum performance
FLEX-Often listed as a Letter or a number the flex indicates how stiff a shaft is
.Starting with L for Ladies, A for Amateur, R for Regular, S for Stiff, X for Extra
stiff. Generally the stiffer flex will match the faster club head swing speed.
TORQUE- A measurement of how much a shaft will twist when under load,the higher
the torque figure quoted the more the shaft will twist.
BEND PROFILE- Shafts are designed to bend more at differing points along their length,the
position and amount of bending can be recorded and a bend profile is then produced,
allowing comparison with other shafts and correct selection to suit the players swing.
BALANCE-How the weight of a shaft is distributed along its length is another design
characteristic,shafts that have more of the weight designed at the head end of the
shaft (Tip section),will feel heavier to the player.
SHAFT SPINE-All golf shafts have what's known as a spine, simply described it is
the strongest side. Spines WILL cause shafts to react poorly, they can produce pulls,
fades,lose of distance ruining a good club.Yet when they are correctly orientated
the club can perform AMAZINGLY. The GOOD news is we can locate the spine on your
own clubs and then position correctly.
