Shafts and Myths
Let’s bust some myths and misunderstandings
You may have read or heard some say that “the shaft is the engine of the golf club”.
That metaphor isn’t right. If there’s an engine, then it’s you. You create the energy. The shaft controls and channels that energy. The shaft is more the transmission; allowing the shaft to return the clubhead square to the target at impact. The shaft transfers the energy you create to the clubhead.
One of the questions you have to ask yourself is: do you have the right transmission for your engine and vehicle? Are you maximising the return on the energy you’re creating; and are you returning the clubhead square to target at impact?
“If you’re losing distance as you get each year older, then it’s really worth while looking at options to create faster clubhead speed and a better energy transfer.”
Now let’s check
Ready for your transmission to be checked over? We have examples of shaft changes that have added as much as 30 yards to tee shots. With irons we find big improvements in shot dispersion.
