Magnetic Protractor

The Magnetic protractor conveniently and easily measures loft and lie of clubs in the playing position. Works with any measuring machine. Accurate to half of 1 with a large 4" dial for easy reading. Loft and lies specifications printed on the back. Durable plastic construction.
Magnetic Protractor is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from works really well For many golfers their club's "loft and lie" are mysterious things. I especially want to know my lofts, they determine trajectory and distance. I want my irons to be 4 degrees apart, I want my driver lofts to be correct. With this little device you just dry-shaft a clubhead and prop it up on a level counter so that the club is in the correct hitting position, then measure the loft. I'd say long-term the measurements are accurate to 1/2 degree which is all I need. One example of how useful it is, a friend complained that his new 10 degree driver had too high a ballflight. I measured it for him and it was actually 13 degrees at the face center. It is very common for off-the-shelf drivers to be off by 2 to 4 degrees, and that is a giant amount. I measure the lofts of all my clubs and record the values in my golf book. This is an invaluable and inexpensive instrument for anyone who wants to know more about his clubs.

How does it work

Asked by: John
It is used along with a Golf Club Gauge to measure the loft and lie. You have to use the Golf Club Gauge to make sure the club is in it's proper position. At this link you can see how it is used to measure loft and lie. Just scroll down through these instructions. http://www.golfworks.com/images/art/HGCG.pdf

All the answers so far are not very helpful. A simple photo on how to use this protractor device would be immensely helpful. As it is, I have no idea how to use it. Heck no I wouldn't buy it again.

I am using the email address you have listed here to send you a couple of pictures.

how do you use this product ?

Asked by: bill c
For measuring loft and lie you would use the Magnetic Protractor along with a Golf Club Gauge such as our HGCG. Some clubmaker's prefer to use the Magnetic Protractor with the gauge instead of the Golf Club Protractor (GWPRO) for measuring the specifications. http://www.golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_HGCG You can see the instructions for the Golf Club Gauge at this link. http://www.golfworks.com/images/art/LOLI2.pdf If you do not have a Golf Club Gauge you would need to be able to duplicate the clamping position of the gauge to get accurate loft and lie measurements.

Can you show a picture measuring a loft?

Asked by: Stumped
Sorry but we do not have a picture I can show you at this time with this particular gauge. However if you look at the instruction booklet at this link and look at page 6 Fig. 3 you will see how we measure loft using the metal protractor along with the Golf Club Gauge. You would use the Magnetic Protractor in the same manner to measure loft as we do with the metal protractor. To properly measure loft you do need a Golf Club Gauge or be able to match the clamped position of the club in the gauge to be able to properly measure loft. http://www.golfworks.com/images/art/LOLI2.pdf

How do you use the magnetic protractor

Asked by: Ryan G
Yu simply need to place the club in the playing position, with with the sole of the club resting on a flat surface on it's center, with the face square. You can attach the protractor to the shaft to get a lie reading, and then to the face to get a loft reading. Be sure the face is square when measuring the loft.
