There was a sense of familiarity as the first EI Flex Distribution Graph formed as I measured the Riptide MX. I have seen this profile before, in fact it is an archetypical design. Successful on tour after a very, very long time, the profile is available from several shaft companies.

The ACCRA iCWT iron shafts are unique. They are constant weight sets with 4″ parallel tips. A golf club builder, by cutting away some of the tip, can created the stiffness they want. The ACCRA iCWT is available in three weights, 75g, 95g and 115g.

Nippon Modus3 Tour115 X Golf Shaft Review

As of the end of 2021 availability the Nippon Modus Tour115 is limited. I received only the X flex version. The shaft will be added to the Mizuno fitting cart in 2022. We now have Nippon Modus3 shafts in 5 weights, 105, 115, 120, 125 and 130. It is important to note that these are more than simple weight options of the same design. The Modus3 120 and the Modus3 130 are radically different designs.

Graphite Design Tour AD UB Shaft Review

Graphite Design Tour AD UB Driver Shaft Review

The Graphite Design Tour AD UB is the second shaft from Graphite Design to use Torayca ® M40X pre-preg. Torayca ® M40X has both high strength and does not deform when loaded. Tensile Modulus is the mechanical property the relates force to deformation. The material in the UB does not elongate when loaded. In a golf shaft, the energy applied is not lost to elongation. It is stored in the shaft and theoretically is released at impact resulting in higher ball speeds.

High Balance and Low Balance designs compliment the ACCRA Tour Z shaft, released in 2017. High modulus. low resin prepreg results in low wall thickness, enhancing feedback. Uniform taper provides maximum energy transfer down the shaft. A woven prepreg from Toray runs down the length of the shaft, resulting in a uniform torque profile down the shaft. ACCRA tells us this creates the lowest resin to fiber ratio of any shaft they have ever designed. The shafts are made in a Japanese and the quality and conformity across weights and flex designations is as good as I have seen. Lets explore the EI Profile flex distribution of these shafts and look at how the movement of balance point changes a shaft.
