Golf Shafts Torque

Where to reshaft in Singapore

In previous section "moments" on golf science, we knows both moments and torque are in same definition.
Readers do take note : *

However in golf industry , center gravity of the club head is not on the shaft axis.
During a golf swing, torque causes in various sizes of rotational motion towards toe-side of the shaft.
So how can we measure torque?

By applying the moment that is:1 foot x 1 pound Or in SI unit (ft-lb) it can be evaluates to measure .

A pound-foot is a unit of torque (a vector).
One pound-foot is the torque created by one pound force acting at a
perpendicular distance of one foot from a pivot point.

When converting 1 foot = 30.48cm = 0.3048m 1pound = 453.6g
It will take the moment is 138.26 gm.

As an example :
If this moment over the twisted 5 degrees , "Torque 05 °" term is use to describe in the golf industry.
(As readers can see it from the above picture)
Any curious golfers whom interested on torque measurement it can be done at YUJI GOLF as well.
