What is “spining”?
Golf shafts are made by wrapping the steel or graphite into a tube shape and joining it with a seam that runs the length of the shaft. That seam is called the “spine” of the shaft and the location of that seam when the shaft is inserted into the club head affects ball striking consistency in relation to the club face.
The art of spining is the process of locating the spine on the shaft and lining up that spine in the correct position when the shaft is inserted into the club head.
If the spine is not in the correct position the club head will oscillate or wobble during the downswing, translating into an inconsistent location of the club face at impact.
To the touch and to the naked eye, the spine on a golf shaft cannot be detected, therefore special tools are required to find the spine.
