OBAN TOUR LIMITED DRIVER SHAFT
The latest model from Oban Composites is the Kyoshi Tour Limited. Released in 2014, this high modulus composite shaft features a tip section that is stiffer than all of the other Kyoshi models. Looking at the EI bend profile of this shaft, the shaft maintains it’s stiffness to about the 15 inch mark, then drastically softens and maintains that softness through the shaft to the butt section where it stiffens again around the 33 inch section. We used the 60 in 04 (stiff) flex. This shaft in the 60 and 70 stiffens in the butt section to produce higher launch conditions without increasing spin rates. We took the shaft to the range to test it out, and came back with some profound results.
