Spinner shafts

Spinner shafts

Postby Newtown Pippin » Fri May 07, 2021 4:12 pm

First off. I know I don’t know anything
So, I am asking about spinner shafts
( going stiffer in flex and shoving a 8i shaft in a wedge) to lower ball flight and increase spin.
Is that a solution for swingers ?

I have never seen the advantage, nor have I been on a trackman to ooh and awe at. 200RPM’s additional
I carry a 48° a 52° and a 56° I’m old that way and knocking down a wedge is a skill not a equipment piece.
I must be missing something ?
In a hitting protocol (don’t kill Me) don’t softer shafts lag behind and deloft the face ever so slightly ?
And In a swinging protocol won’t the shaft trip (if timed ) at the bottom ?
I can’t find this being addressed previously

Thanks in advance

Like a lot of things... it depends.

If you are hitting and accelerating and holding shaft flex, then YES...the looser shaft will deloft the clubface some.
Regardless of shaft flex, acceleration through the strike is the essential ingredient in putting more spin on the ball.
In recent times, milled faces can act like sandpaper and grip the ball for more spin. The softer cover balls will of course spin more
for the same reason... this is why many of us from the last generation miss the balata balls so much.
