Frequently Asked Questions

What is Spine Alignment?


During the manufacturing process, a shaft naturally develops asymmetry, an inconsistency. This, according to many experts, could lead to poor shotmaking because the "spine" part of the shaft is not always located in the identical part of the club when assembled. Shaft spinning is the method by which a spine is identified and then installed in a consistent location for each club in your bag (logo positions may vary throughout the set). Having this process done will give you a more consistent set of clubs.

What is Lie Angle Adjustment?


Lie angle is an easy specification to fit yet is often overlooked by most players. Lie is the angle between the club and ground when the club is in the impact position. Lie angles are classified as either flat, upright or standard. A lie that is too flat will cause the ball to be pushed to the right of the target, while an upright lie will cause the ball to be pulled left of the target. The correct lie will yield shots directed straight at the target, a process certain to help your game.

Why is Shaft Flex Important?


All shafts are not equal. There are NO industry standards when it comes to shaft flex. None. Every manufacturer tests their shafts in a different manner which means a Callaway S-flex may be the same as a TaylorMade R-flex or vice versa. The manufacturing companies we buy our shafts from perform their own independent swing speed analysis on every shaft. Our customers can be assured of receiving the correct shaft flex for their swing tempo.

How is Club Length Measured?


For woods and irons, the measurement of club length is made with the club set at a 60° lie angle, as illustrated above .

For putters, the measurement of club length is taken from the top of the grip along the axis of the shaft or a straight line extension of it to the sole of the club.
