Are the Titleist shafts spine aligned?

Thank you Matthew for your answer
I'm still surprised that in 2012 there is no way to prove such simple laws of physic, there are machines out there that can reproduce the same exact golf swing over and over and in my simplistic mind it would just be fun to see the results. After all the efforts that companies put in advertising all the qualities of their products, it should be easy for them to get this straight. It's like putting nice mag wheels on your car without balancing the wheels.
We all know that all the tour pros play with spine aligned shafts, their must be a good reason ?!?

Thanks for the great posts. We've received a few questions about this process over the past several years.
The Titleist Golf Club R&D group has conducted testing with tour and better players to compare performance between shafts that have been PURE'D and shafts that have not. We have never been able to see or measure any performance difference whatsoever. Therefore, we do not feel PURING adds any performance improvement or benefit.We have no plans to offer PURE'D shafts and do not endorse or recommend the process for Titleist clubs.
Tour players can indeed have their shafts pure'd. However, we feel that this process can only make a psychological difference vs a measurable performance difference based on our extensive testing as stated above. It is also important to note that not 'all' tour players play with pure'd shafts. In fact, most of our Titleist Tour players do not have their shafts pure'd.
Titleist stands behind the performance of our product 100% with the shafts and processes we have tested ourselves within our own facilities using our own equipment.
We hope this helps provide some feedback for you.
All the best,

Thank you for your great enlightening post, I will rest assured that my Titleist clubs are as good as they can be :-))

Then you can go with a shaft like the SK fiber line.
Virtually no spine due to build process so cpms are the same all 360*.
It so happens they are pretty damn fine shafts to boot and at quite reasonable $.
I spine/Flo my shafts, and have done it to alleviate droop (6/12 in driver) or nbp to 9/3 o clock.
Why? I want to try and get as many variables out of the way as I can.
When I pull my 6 ir I have zero doubt that it is as good as it can be and then its all up to me. Confidence factor I guess.
