If the 55 HZRDUS(stiff) is a relatively light shaft and therefore you can swing it faster , why doesnt it have a low torque number ? It has a mid /high torque. It seems like the faster you can swing it the more it would twist under that pressure. I really wanted this shaft to work but the Adila 62 may be better for me , IDK yet. I wish I never would have learned about torque , its in my head big time
@RickM -- In your mind, replace the word 'torque' with 'Feel'. 'Med/High' means soft, and Low means 'tight/firm'. No need to overthink the impact of torque on actually ball performance.
Answering your exact question, people who swing really fast, tend to play heavier or stiffer shafts, which often times do have lower torque values. So for the majority of golfers a 55g reg or stiff flex, shouldn't have a super low torque value.
@NaydelmanCG Thanks Nate , I love the new driver. I am gonna keep working with the H55 because I can swing it fast and under control. If not for an old shaft I have from about 5 years ago with a 1.2 torque , I wouldnt even know the difference , haha. That old white speeder was awesome to me. Im gonna have to mail it to you and get it fixed. The opti -fit is cracked. Maybe that old shaft will work with this EPIC AWESOME HEAD. Thanks for keeping me straight.
The Rogue Max 65 stiff at 66 grams has only 4.2 torque rating where a competitive Ping G30 Tour 65 stiff (my old gamer) has a 61G shaft with 3.4 torque. Although the Rogue Max is heavier than the Ping shaft (4 grams lighter) with the same loft provided a lower launch and seemed stiffer for my 113 MPH fast tempo swing. The accuracy in the Rogue Max is better and the launch is higher. How does the torque and launch characteristic (mid-launch) of the Rogue MAX shaft stack up in science-wise with the Ping Tour 65 specs above?
Torque is the key driver to the feel of a shaft. Often times, players who swing faster prefer a firmer feel, but not always. There are X-Flex shafts with high torque and also Reg flex shafts with low torque.
In our shaft guides, we base the torque ranges on the shaft manufacturer's published specifications.
Thank you for pointing this out. We are getting it updated now with the 4 stock shafts and it should be fixed within a couple days.
@NaydelmanCG- I don't know about torque, numbers or any of that stuff, but I do know the pro fitter put the Hzrdus 55grm shaft in my driver and the 65 in my 3 and 5 woods. Not only my friends but guys I play against say I am hitting it so much better- go figure! So for me it is about the game and the feel, numbers I don't understand. Not to insult those that like to compare them, for those these are some great shafts to hit. Try it understand it is all I can say.
