Benefit of Low Torque Shaft

I'm turning 70 and my swing speed is low 80's. Recently bought a low torque shaft ( ust mamiya gold 65) hybrid  and got some great results distance wise. Was thinking of reshafting my driver. I usually hit driver a total of 190 yards, with a tendency to go left. Any benefit to a lower torque shaft? thanks

I think weight and flex of your hybrid is what is giving you good results, not torque.  

No offense here, but lower speed swings don’t see the benefit of lower torque.  In fact, with lower speed and lower torque the ball flight tendency will be a pull because the face will not open and close.  It’ll be closed to the path.  Generally a lower torque shaft will be heavier as well and feel stiffer.

A player with an aggressive transition would see some benefit to lower torque with direction, where a smoother swinger can handle higher torque.


What weight shaft are you looking at?  I’d say to go some place where you can hit different weight shafts, I think that is where you will see your gains more than thinking about torque.
