I've had a bunch a driver and fairway metal graphite shafts "pured" in my clubs as well as my wife's clubs this year. Her clubs , which have much softer and lighter shafts, were greatly "improved" per their data sheets. I had another 6 clubs reshafted with UST V2 Pro-Force stiff shafts weighing from ~66g to ~82g. Each had some modest improvement from their standard installation position, but nothing like the softer shafts. All of the work was done at one of two PGA Superstores.
On Monday I dropped off a new driver and asked for a 1" extension on the Grafaloy pro-launch S-65 blue shaft and asked them to pure it. I picked it up tonight and the thing was still the same length. I didn't notice this until I soled it after I got home. I immediately knew I'd "gotten the shaft". Anyway, the puring data sheet showed no deviation at all with the standard shaft position. I commented that I'd never seen any shaft anywere close to this perfect. The guy muttered something about having problems with their puring machine. I'm pretty sure I just got ripped off. I'm not going to pull the shaft again unless I'm going to put a new one in and that would be expensive. I'm very frustrated with the PGA Superstore right now...
Does anyone have opinions on this or puring shafts in general? Does this process translate to a tighter distribution of hits on the clubface? I wonder if I've just been lighting money on fire.
Thanks in advance for your opinions.
