The amount of resistance to twisting that a shaft has is called torque. Each shaft has a different torque, and it is important to match the correct torque for each individual swing. The lower the torque number, the less the shaft will twist when force is applied. This also will make the shaft feel stiffer.
Slower swing speeds generally need a higher torque and faster speeds need a lower torque. Most of the time, the torque of the shaft in your fairway woods will be greater than the torque of the shaft in your driver.
The angle of a clubface and the corresponding trajectory of the shot it will produce. Loft is determined by comparing the angle of the face perpendicular to the ground.
The relative stiffness or overall bending property of a shaft. Manufacturers typically categorize shafts by ladies, senior, regular, firm, stiff and extra stiff flex.
Generally, using a shaft that is too stiff will produce a straighter shot, but with a loss of distance. A shaft that is too soft will generally produce a shot pattern that is more erratic, but the distance will be greater. With a smooth tempo and proper timing, you can make a soft shaft work, but pay attention to consistency.
The clubhead balance point that is controlled by the size of the head and the location of the head weight. The lower the center of gravity and the farther back it is from the clubface, the easier it is to get the ball airborne.
If you wish to modify your order by swapping out parts, the request for modification must be made within one (1) business day (M-F) of placing the order — we do not allow exceptions. Since your clubs are ordered custom to match your specifications, we are unable to cancel orders once they are placed.
We stand behind the performance of every club we build. Our Perfect Fit Guarantee ensures that the results you see on the golf course match those seen in the fitting bay. If you’re having issues with your custom clubs, contact your fitter within 90 days to set up a free appointment to fix or replace your clubs. Visit our Perfect Fit Guarantee Page for more information.
With a proper fitting, there are two things that make up the cost of the golf club: the head and the shaft. Our prices on heads or stock-built clubs are exactly the same as everywhere else. A driver that is $399 at the big box mega store is $399 from us. The difference is we don’t recommend using the stock shaft that comes with the driver. In most of cases, it is a lower quality shaft. Instead, we find the best shaft for you and that is often a higher quality aftermarket shaft like those played on Tour.
Equally important to the fitting is the building. We will build your set one club at a time to hit the proper length, lie, loft, swingweight, etc. with other performance-boosting elements like shaft PUREing. Custom building adds cost but if it is not built right, you won’t see the proper results from a great fit.
