To build a precision matched set of clubs a frequency analyzer is a necessity. Torque is also a critical parameter in selecting a shaft, particularly graphite. Kaufman Electronics is proud to offer the Club Scout III to meet the clubmaker's needs. The Club Scout III is a precision microprocessor based golf shaft analyzer that measures both frequency in cycles per minute and torque to a tenth of a degree. The Club Scout III features:
The Club Scout III measures torque of a raw shaft or a finished club by attaching a calibrated torsion arm to the tip of the shaft. The butt end is firmly held in the clamping unit. A support bracket under the tip of the shaft restricts the shaft to twisting motion only. Tapping the end of the torsion arm causes the shaft to oscillate in torsion. The electronics unit measures the torsional frequency and converts it to degrees of torque accurate to 0.1 degrees.
