How many times have you heard it said that there is no standard rating system for golf shafts. When I entered the golf club fitting business over a decade ago I learned what a huge problem that presented to a fitter. This site shares the knowledge of golf shafts accumulated through years of club fitting, club building and golf shaft measuring. The technology menu is a collection of articles focused on understanding golf shaft design and the attributes of the golf shaft that can be independently measured. My objective in creating this site is to balance the marketing messages of the golf business with some science. And ultimately to help you play better golf.

It took years to understand shaft measurement and many more years to accumulate a meaningful database of shaft measurements. Golf Shaft Reviews focuses on providing unbiased standardized measurements of golf shafts. The magnitude of that accomplishment did not occur to me until a golf shaft company owner said it to me.

If you believe as I do that the golf shaft is essential to good golf, register now. Testing shafts and writing articles takes a great amount of time. The membership fee underwrites the time and resources needed to keep this site going and growing. It also funds the acquisition of shafts that have not been available. You will notice, this site is does not run ads, that allows me to remain unbiased in the articles.

An affiliated golf shaft store store.golfshaft.reviews now exists. The goal is to make the premium shafts reviewed here available in all weights and flexes, with head adapters and grips. Devoted Golfer (lifetime) subscribers have access to discount coupons to offset their financial support of this site. We ask for your patience as the online store is built.

If you are a golf professional and would like access to more date there are two choices. Golf Professional subscribers get access to a larger set of data and individual profiles of all the shaft model weights and stiffness variations that were made available. Fit2Score Affiliates have access to the entire database through Excel. To hear a recent podcast interview I did about golf shafts with Tony Wright a Fit2Score Software Affiliate, Click Here.

Fujikura Pro 2.0 Driver Golf Shaft Review

Fujikura Pro 2.0 Driver Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker
The Golf Center at the Highlands, Carrollton Texas

The Fujikura Pro 2.0 is an update of the Fujikura Pro driver shaft that we reviewed in 2014. The Fujikura Pro 2.0 is a 2018 revision of that shafts. This profile is now available from a number fo shaft companies. Fujikura uses the term ‘loading zone’ to describe the design. That term is not new, it has been used by True Temper where I first encountered it. In my experience, it works for many golfers and is one of those designs that does, for some, deliver distance. Always remember, there is a synergy between your swing and a golf shaft. What works for your buddy’s swing will not necessarily work for your swing. Lets take a look at this profile and how it is expressed in the Fujikura Pro 2.0.

Fujikura Atmos Red Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker

Fujikura tells us the 2018 Atmos has a higher launch and softer profile version of the Tour Spec version and is inclined to promote a higher flight and spin. Lets take a look at the measurements to get insight into this profile.

It has been a long time since I looked at Fujikura shafts. Review samples have been difficult to obtain. The Atmos covered in this review was introduced in 2017. It is offered by several club companies as a $200 premium upgrade.

KBS TCI Graphite Iron Shaft Review

KBS TCI Graphite Iron Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker
The Golf Center at the Highlands, Carrollton Texas

Following the success of the KBS Carbon Fiber Hybrid shaft released in 2017, KBS has created light weight parallel iron shafts. Rather than me explaining the shaft, listen to Kim Braly at the PGA 2018 merchandise show discuss its development and pre release testing.

The shaft does not have a flex designation on its label. The number is the 6 iron swing speed which is your first cut and fitting the shafts. Lets take a look at the profile and data.

TrueTemper EvenFlow Red Driver Shaft Review

TrueTemper EvenFlow Red Shaft Review

By Russ Ryden, Fit2Score, A Dallas Fort Worth Club Fitter & Club Maker
The Golf Center at the Highlands, Carrollton Texas

The Project X EvenFlow line was designed for the mid swing speed range golfer. The Red is the third shaft in the series. The EvenFlow Blue and Black the mid and low launch versions were reviewed in the fall. This video was shot in January at ACCRA day at the PGA Merchandise show. We were outdoors in the wind, the video is not great, but the content is. Bill starts the discussion of the EvenFlow at the 3:30 mark.

At the time this video was shot the EvenFlow Red had not been released. Now that it is we can look at the profile and compare it to the EvenFlow Black and EvenFlow Blue.
