ACCRA added a new profile to the Tour Z RPG in 2018. The Tour Z RPG is a lower launch version of the Tour Z RPG 300 reviewed last year. This video, shot at ACCRA day at the PGA merchandise has Ken Thompson of ACCRA explaining the RPG shafts to the club fitters gathered there.

ACCRA has moved some of their manufacturing to a Japanese foundry. The Tour Z RPG is a made in Japan product. It uses high modulus materials with the lowest resin content of any ACCRA shaft. A new material with a quad weave runs the entire length of the shaft. The 4 Tour Z RPG 400 shafts have consistent bend profiles. Fitters can work to find your proper weight and flex knowing each of these shaft have exactly the same bend properties. The radial consistency was 99.3% with a 0.5% standard deviation. They are round.

Graphite Design Chichibu Driver Shaft Review

Graphite Design Chichibu Driver Shaft Review

The Graphite Designs Chichibu is an ultralite driver shaft. Uncut weights range from 41 to 46 grams. It is designed for driver swing speeds in the 65 to 85 mph range. This video was shot in January 2018 at the PGA Merchandise show. Bill McPherson and I discuss the Chichibu and other 2018 shafts from Graphite Designs.

Most of Graphite Design’s shafts have models in the 40 gram range. Making light weight shafts is not something new for Graphite Designs. The Chichibu weighs in below the typical Graphite Design Tour AD DI 4 models.
