    GC2 Side Spin (RPM) vs Spin Axis (Deg)


    The GC2 calculates side spin in RPMs, but other devices calculate spin axis in degrees. Can side spin RPMs be converted to spin axis degrees?

    Hi Kball,

    Take a look at Optimal Flight ( Not free, but is available with a 30 day trial. This enables you to view the spin component in either Total Spin Rate/Spin Axis format or Backspin/Sidespin Rate format. In reality, the ball is actually spinning at a particular rate about a particular axis so there is no such thing as separate backspin & sidespin as such. It just makes it a bit easier to visualize when expressed in that format.

    Hope this helps.
