Having made significant changes to my EI instrument and software I measured these again. It has been such a successful design for such a long time, that I have come to regard it as a comparison standard. Adam Scott won the 2013 Masters playing this shaft in his driver. Tiger Woods and Stacy Lewis have used it on Tour. On any given week, there are 10 to 12 in play on the PGA tour over a great many years. There is nothing like PGA Tour success to draw attention to a driver golf shaft.
This video was shot in 2016. It is one of the first of this style shaft tests Mark and I have done.
This review was first published in 2013. It is the first of many shafts that have earned a place in my Golf Shaft Hall of Fame that must be brought up to the current standards. Let’s look at the revised measurements that incorporate hoop deformation into the profile. .
