    Yes you are

    The collision dynamics are a differnt topic, and something that happens to every shaft no matter the flex. But I know that you know that you already know that.

    Interesting thread.

    It sure feels like it is possible to let gravity take over for a bit in the "transition".

    Not sure if that is real or not...or much contributing.

    I thought so. Isn't the whole "catch the club with the pivot" using gravity?

    So why does BManz talk about stressing the shaft during the takeaway if you are saying it "disappears" shortly after? thx

    I think the main point is what you need to do to make the shaft bend.
    Make the body work a little.

    Engage the pivot early and it generally will stay engaged through the swing.
    Moving the hands towards the target....is death.

    The goal isn't to stress the shaft during the takeaway so it stays stressed during the swing. What happens to the shaft during that time is a by-product of what you are or aren't doing.
