Maltby Laser Frequency Machine

The Maltby Design Laser Frequency Machine is a valuable tool for clubmakers to consistently measure shaft frequency of both assembled clubs and raw shafts. Other frequency machines measure reflected light which often results in missed or inconsistent frequency readings. By using a laser as the primary light source, measurements are not affected by ambient or reflected light, shaft color or shaft material. New features for 2008 include: 1) A much improved clutch clamping system that will clamp both gripped golf clubs and raw shafts without changing clamps. 2) A heavy duty base to better protect the electronic components of the analyzer and to eliminate the need for raiser blocks when using on a workbench and 3) Heavy duty laser assembly with a dial locking mechanism to insure the laser lights stay permanently aligned. The LCD screen displays CPMs (cycles per minute) in both 3 and 5 digits for those clubmakers looking for unmatched precision readings. Complete instructions included. Operates on 110 VAC.


  • Measures assembled clubs or raw shafts from the butt end or tip end.
  • Laser CPM counter measures in 3 digit and 5 digit readings.
  • Laser posts adjust to ensure beam and shaft align properly during oscillation.
  • Average button to determine the average for multiple tests of a shaft.
  • Speed locking clamp guarantees consistent pressure on all shafts for accurate readings from one shaft to the next.
  • Easy to read LCD display.
  • 5" clamp will hold raw and gripped shafts.
  • Can be used to do Zone Frequency testing of raw shafts.
  • ASTM standard 205 tip weight included for measuring raw shafts.

Please Note: Additional shipping charges required due to weight.
Maltby Laser Frequency Machine is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! An essential tool for Clubmaker. During my studies I have been surprised by the differences in bending in a golf bag. Flexible shaft does not correspond to that indicated by the manufacturer or variations in swingweight dramatically change the golf club Excellent tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very consistent results from this product Bought almost 6 months ago. Only time I got weird errors was when the table was not stable. Mounted to a board for portability. Identical results compared to a permanent mounted solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice construction and function 1st I would like to statethe 1st machine I received was damaged in shipping. I called Golfworks and within 2 days a new unit was on the way. Golfworks sent me a pre-paid return, thank you. I just started using this unit and it works great. Very accurate as I have a calibration rod to test. I will update once I get several sets of clubs made. I do like the Tip zone function of this unit as well as the ability to move the laser to the shafts center line

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product I got this for Christmas and working on my first set of irons, the clutch froze in the open position. I was able to complete 5 irons before this happened. Now working with GolfWorks to resolve this issue. Not very happy is an understatement.

Hello I have the older model silver analyzer which I just purchased from a retired golf club builder. Everything seems to work fine except the clutch. Is there an adjustment that needs to be made to the clutch? Or do I need to do some type of maintenance?

Asked by: Paul
There is an adjustment to the clutch. Remove the top crank handle. There is a hole in that knob. Insert the allen wrench and there is a screw to adjust the clutch. Turn to the right to tighten the clutch and to the left to loosen the clutch.

I received the machine and for the most part am happy with it. But, I want to understand what I am reading a little better. It reads the general flex of the shaft (2/3 of shaft?), but does not give any indication of kickpoint, correct?

Asked by: Doug
A frequency machine reads the stiffness of the shaft for the 5" that the shaft is clamped into the machine. It does not read a kick point. To compare shaft bend profiles you can profile test shafts over the length of the shaft and the method we use at GolfWorks is explained in the instructions booklet. By comparing shaft profiles you can compare if one bends more near the tip end then another etc.

Which is the stiffer shaft? A 156 or 138 on the frenquency machine,

Asked by: Joel
156 would be stiffer assuming you are comparing 2 shafts that are suppose to be the same in all there specifications including length. The frequency machine only measures the stiffness of the 5" of the butt end of the shaft that is clamped in the machine.

Asked by: AHuang
No this machine does not include any equipment to calibrate the machine. It has a ratching clamp to keep the clamping pressure consistent from one shaft to the next.
