Shafts are NOT the engine of the club

Recommended Posts

That's how I talk about it in fittings too

Hey, we're not captains of our own ships either. Metaphors, and their vague inaccuracies, being what they are.

I appreciate the thread - shafts are an important component but by this time we've seen enough testing to know that the golfer is most important and that the head and shaft come in a rather distance T2 followed by the grip at number 4 and I'm sure some other stuff bringing up the rear.

Bottom line for people who are buying drivers is that the head choice for your swing is just as important as the shaft choice.

I agree. The shaft helps with timing to deliver the clubhead correctly at impact. The clubhead interacts with the ball to impart launch and spin. Both are important and work together to help optimize your swing to get the best results.

Just a bit petty maybe, but I find it annoying when the shaft is often erroneously referred to as the "engine of the golf club". It isn't. If you're looking for automotive simile to liken the golf shaft to, then are more accurate description would be "transmission". 

Not petty IMO. And, I agree with the transmission analogy. Makes prefect sense.

Again I agree. I believe you have to find the right pairing.
