    The amount of twist in a golf club shaft under a given amount of force is called torque. Shafts with lower torque values twist less than do higher torque shafts. In general, advanced golfers with high clubhead speeds prefer low-torque shafts, while higher-torque shafts can help improving players square the clubface for better accuracy.

    Graphite shafts, most commonly used in woods and hybrids, can be built with torque ranging from 1° to as much as 8°. Steel shafts, most common in irons, have a torque range of about 2-4°.
