    Does shaft torque affect MOI? MOI in its most basic form is the club heads resistance to twist, correct? So, if you know you are a consistent heel/toe hitter, could you then measure a shaft and look to find one with higher torque on one side compared to the other? Trying to cancel out the twisting of the club face with the twisting of the shaft. I know that is going into extreme depth, you would have to measure a bunch of shafts to find the correct one, etc. Definitely, might not be realistic if plausible!

    Honestly I think you might be overthinking it. Twisting won’t really cancel one side out

    We will be doing the same with loft and lie check, bending, frequency analyzer and swing weight as well since we have been getting questions on each.

    My irons could use a loft/lie check. Feel free to murder them out with new shafts, grips and ferrules while they are there. I will cover shipping
