The ACCRA Tour Z has been a staple in the ACCRA product line. The Tour Z Extreme is an updated version, using higher density prepreg and Kevlar in the tip.There are two models designed to compliment each other. The Tour ZX 400 series exhibits a profile known to produce a mid launch low spin. The TourZx 200 Series is typical of a higher launch higher spin design. The stiffness is very consistent across weights. The shafts do not get noticeably stiffer as they get heavier. Paring the TourZx 200 in a fairway with a TourZx 400 in a driver creates a great combination for most golfers. A more penetrating lower spinning drive and a higher launching, higher spinning flight in a fairway.
The discussion between Woody Lashen, a long time Fit2Score Affiliate and Gawain Robertson, do owner of ACCRA golf gets to the TourZ at the 10:30 mark. It was shot at the 2016 PGA merchandise show.The profiles are consistent with earlier designs. The TourZx 200 series resembles the earlier Tour Z LS. The TourZx 400 is much like the TourZ ST. This is quite common, remaking a design that was successful with new materials.
