The science behind it makes sense.  I have seen the computer readings that show how some shafts (even high-end) oscillate (sp?) differently when positioned differently.

My club guy does the computer "puring" for free whenever I have him put a shaft in that I purchased through him.  And when I brought him a Shaqx that I picked up on Ebay, he only charged me $20 for the puring and install with new grip.  Seemed very fair to me as the grip was $6 on its own.

It only takes him a few minutes to do.  I would think that most shops would do this for free if you are buying a shaft from them, and in that case it is a no-brainer.  It is nice to know that the shaft I am playing is the best shaft, optimally positioned, when you tee it up.

I cannot say what the dispersion-tightness loss is when a shaft is NOT pured, but it is interesting to see the differences on the computer when shafts are rotated around during the puring process.  It does seem like the real high-end shafts are more consistently logo-down than the mid-level shafts.  Matrix shafts are particularly consistent.  But I have a tour-issue Mitsubishi ShaqX that ended up "puring out" at logo 3:00, so it just shows that logo down is not always the optimum placement.

Bottom line is that I do it.  I figure that it certainly can't hurt, and may even help.

Additional Money $$$$ is vague, but $5-10 is a decent charge and worth it. “Pure”ing or “Spine”ing is worth the money but some suggest high handicappers (low club speeds) do not need this. I believe they are wrong and think puring is a necessary function. I have noticed high end shafts, such as a Matrix shaft, has a very finite spine and hard to locate if location is a possibility at all.

I have had my driver and 3wd SST Pured and am satisfied with the results.
Here is a good topic on it.
