What does a stiffer tip on a driver shaft do?

What does a soft tip shaft do? Well a shaft that has a soft tip has a low bend point and this helps lift the ball in the air by adding dynamic loft. Players who hit the ball too high should look for a tip stiff shaft which does not add so much loft, which produces a lower and more penetrating trajectory.

Does cutting down a shaft make it stiffer? “Cutting more of the grip end will still stiffen the shaft a little bit, but only because in doing so you make the shaft shorter, and not nearly as much as when trimming more from the tip end.”

Does a longer shaft mean more torque? The reason for this relationship is that a golf shaft is both bending and twisting at the same time during a golf swing, which means that stiffer shafts will benefit from a lower torque.

### What is considered a high torque shaft?

Fortunately, the fitting ramifications of torque even in graphite shafts is not that severe. Simply stated, it means that if you are a big strong, powerful person with an aggressive swing tempo and a late release, you never want the torque in a graphite shaft to be any higher than 4 to 4.5 degrees.

### Who needs a low torque shaft?

1) Players who tend to hook the ball will benefit from a lower torque shaft. Players who tend to slice the ball will benefit from a higher torque shaft. 2) Players who swing faster need lower torque.

### Does shaft length affect torque?

The other way to calculate minimum shaft size for a motor is to set a limit on the amount of torsional deflection (twisting) that may occur. Resistance to torsional stress is directly proportional to shaft size: the larger the diameter, the greater the resistance to twisting.

### Is torque affected by length?

EXAMPLE 1: The longer the lever arm, then for the same force, the greater the torque. EXAMPLE 2: The greater the applied force, then for the same lever arm length, the greater the torque. EXAMPLE 3: The larger the gear, then for the same force, the greater the torque.

### Does torque increase with diameter?

It is more useful to say that torque is proportional to the ratio of the radii of a pair of pulleys or gears. Also RPM is reduced or increased in the same ratio so a small diameter gear driving a larger one increases torque but reduces RPM at the output shaft.

### How do you calculate max torque on a shaft?

For motors, find torque (in ft-lb) using this equation: T = (HP*5252)/rpm.

### Is torque constant along a shaft?

a) Torque stays constant along a shaft (so we’re neglecting any friction in bearings that hold the shaft in place).

### What force does not cause any torque?

What force does not cause any torque? Force perpendicular to the fulcrum.

### Which force produces the greatest torque?

the force that is at 90° to the lever arm is the one that will have the largest torque.

### What does torque depend on?

The magnitude of torque of a rigid body depends on three quantities: the force applied, the lever arm vector connecting the point about which the torque is being measured to the point of force application, and the angle between the force and lever arm vectors.
