Now as for how usefull spining or for that fact, sst/pure is a on going debate. It is my understanding that spining and sst/pure are pretty much the same, but the sst/pure will give you more numbers and is much more accurate b/c it is done by a computer. Also, when I put in my spined shafts I put the spine of the shaft at 12:00 o'clock on the head, steel graphite, both the same position and I've had no problems. There are also articles on the internet about spining. My feelings are that if you are a consistant ball striker you will notice a difference. Your dispersion will be tighter and the "feel" between clubs will be a lot the same. It will also really help to weigh your heads and get the 6-8 grams apart. This can be done with lead weights that go into the tip of the shaft.
My .02 cents is if you are serious about your game spine the shafts yourself, its not hard at all. If, at this time you aren't a consistant ball striker you will grow into it so the spining won't hurt. As for the launch monitor for a driver/shaft combo for your swing I'd diffinetly wait until you feel you are at least somewhat consistant with your ball striking b/c this can get expensive
