Thanks to the 20 testers that came in and spent some time with us on the new GEARS Golf motion sensing system. These testers hit a driver with four different shafts and the results were recorded not only with the GEARS system but with Trackman. Based on preliminary results, this system will help us do a better job with the initial shaft fitting. Our fittings will become faster and more dialed-in to the correct shaft in the first round of live testing. Because we know in more detail HOW the golfer loads the shaft and WHEN the release point is in the swing, we can pick shafts that will give a tighter impact area on the face (called a Face Map). We can also determine the impact of the shaft stiffness, tip stiffness and mid section stiffness on Attack Angle (higher or lower launch) and Face Angle (dispersion). We will be publishing the results in the next 30 days or so after we have completed our analysis of the test data.
