ACCRA shafts are sold exclusively to custom club fitters and builders. The TZ models are an evolution of the Tour Z series. The TZ5 and TZ6 incorporate the latest high modulus materials. High modulus materials have a muted feel. Solid strikes deliver a lower frequency thud to your hands in contrast to the higher frequency click typical of lower density pre-preg.

Fujikura Ventus Driver Golf Shaft Review

Fujikura Ventus Driver Shaft Review

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

Fujikura tells us the Ventus driver shaft is made with full length Pitch 70 Ton Carbon Fiber material that is 150% stronger than Toray T1100g. T1100g is used in many premium driver shafts. In the Ventus,the 70 ton full length fiberis combined with 40 Ton Carbon Fiber to minimizes twisting. We here from them that high torque creates dispersion. The design of the Ventus is low tip torque to decrease dispersion. Years of fitting experience validate this torque observation. The stock shafts in most drivers have higher torque than the shaft upgrades offered by both the club companies and aftermarket fitters.

We know that very low torque shafts feel boardy. That can be mitigated by having a low torque tip combined with a higher torque mid and but. The tip resists twist at impact while the higher torque in the mid and butt restore feel.

Nippon NSPro 950GHneo Iron Golf Shaft Review

Nippon NSPro 950GHneo Iron Golf Shaft Review

The NSPro 950 has been available for longer than I have been professionally fitting. It is still available in most every fitting system from every major club manufacturer. The success of the Nippon Modus3 shafts has heightened the popularity of Nippon’s products.The differences between the NSPro 950 and the neo are subtle.

This is a long video where we talk about a lot of Nippon golf shafts, the discussion of the 950GHneo is early in the video at 2:40 on the timeline.

USTMamiya Recoil ESX Golf Iron Shaft Review

UST Mamiya Recoil ESX Shaft Review

It has been some time since I measured a set of UST Mamiya Recoil iron shafts. UST does not make review samples available and the last time I did measure a set of constant weight taper Recoils I did not see consistent profiles through the set. Updates to a fitting cart that arrived a few weeks ago included the Recoil ESX. I ordered a set of irons that were getting custom shafted with uncut ESX shafts to get an updated look at set consistency. I pulled the shafts and measured them. I was suprised with what I saw.
