for those of you that spline golf shafts...how are the adjustable heads impacting the logic of splining a shaft for a better fitting? does this now mean that for one position only will the shaft be correctly aligned in the clubhead? should individuals be fitted for correct head adjustment first, then insert splined shaft in that setup? thanks

Rotating a shaft is not the best idea but most of today's adjustable drivers require that you do that ....Some shaft manufacturers like Miyazaki with their JDL series is trying to address this.  Miyazaki claims their JDL series is less affected by rotation adustments than other shafts and in fact was actually designed specifically for adjustable drivers..

Despite that, my experience has been that shafts tend to have and/or develop a "spine" over time, and you are messing with that anytime you rotate the shaft inside the head.

Interesting question. I would initially think if the spined shaft is installed in a "neutral" hosel position, any adjustment to lie angle upright or flat would not effect the 12:00 position and any adjustment to face angle has no effect on shaft orientation...but then others might say todays shaft designs by major shaft  mfg. have negligible spine anyway so shaft orientation is a waste of time (Titleist - no visible or measurable improvement to performance).

Use the club for 30 days, get used to it......hit lots of fairways....
Sort out your weighting for draw...fade....higher flite etc.
Shorten shaft half inch...an inch...again adjust weights/ Grip weight and Tape under the grip.Ask your foursome..hows the flite look to you..lot of wisdom there!!
Then pull shaft and have it spine aligned to work with Your 30 day Favourite Setting.   PS pull an adjustable shaft (unscrew it) pull the grip, and its easy to find the spine anyway with the adjustable tip in place. This gives you a good baseline setting.  As i'm a true GolfWRX'r, i,ve sold all my adjustable clubs and back to the Old Fixed stuff.Adam 9031,Nickent 5dx,Bridgestone J38,Maltby KE4SSF1 Cheers!
