    I saw that. The shafts are not identical. The A flex shaft has 6.4* of torque which explains the low launch and left results for the A flex.

    For them to be identical the torque would have to be the same across. So imho it's bogus.

    If interested read the following and the history of torque over the years.

    At its worst, a very strong, aggressive swinging golfer using a shaft with a torque of 6 degrees and higher can see the ball fly with a severe, low hook. This is because that much torque does not provide enough resistance to the twisting force that a golfer with a strong transition move and aggressive downswing tempo will generate

    Interesting. What would be a good flex/torque for someone with a 95mph swing speed (+/-) but with a quick transition (takes the driver back slowly to a 3/4 turn and then anger management issues on the way down)?

    Asking....for a friend.

    Tough to answer. I'd say 4 or less but best to go see a fitter

    The only thing that was similar among those four shafts was the paint job. They were all different in weight, torque and flex profile. You could see the guy adjusting is swing when he switched shafts

    A word on torque.

    Torque is not a major fitting variable. Torque is more associated with overall feel. Torque has various ways of being measured so there in no consistency throughout the industry. The torque # on a shaft is marketing, the same as the letter indicating the flex and the swing speed recommendation.

    One good thing he did emphasize was not to get all bogged down in to thinking the shaft is everything.

    Ah fitting, so many variables to consider yet so mystifying are the results from each individual golfer.

    Happy snow day everyone

    I had a groupon for a fitting ar the Callaway Peromance Centre in Mtl when it was open. The fitter there recommended afew things but for the driver he said not to change the shaft, that it suited me perfectly. I have tried to find shafts that are similar in profile but know that different heads also make a diffenrence. That is why you MUST see a fitter !!!!!!!!!
