TrueTemper EvenFlow Drive Shaft Review

There are two models of the 2020 EvenFlow Riptide driver shaft from TrueTemper. One is noted CB for counter balanced. As I have seen many times, counter balancing has more effect on the shaft profile that it will have on the balance of a driver. Lets take a look at the profiles of the two models.

KBS has completed their matrix of carbon fiber shafts with a driver shaft. There are 15 models from 40 grams to 80 grams. The shafts are labeled with a weigh and a category. The category is stiffness. KBS has done a very good job of maintaining this stiffness rating across weights.

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.

Graphite Design Tour AD XC Golf Shaft Review

Graphite Design Tour AD XC Golf Shaft Review

The Graphite Design Tour AD XC is an update of the Tour AD BB design. The Tour AD BB design is still available while several other models have been discontinued. That speaks to the success of the design. One of the teaching pros I work closely with has the BB in his gamer driver. As materials evolve so must the shafts built with them. The Tour AD XC uses 50 ton ultra premium carbon fiber as was used in the BB. New is TORAYCA MX40 pre-preg and TORAYCA T1100G NANOALLOY pre-preg in the mid and tip regions for increased stability and feel.
