OBAN Isawa GLD Driver Shaft Review

OBAN ISAWA GLD Golf Driver Shaft Review

The Oban Isawa GLD is one of many 2022 products I will be reviewing in the coming month. Responding to the request of Oban Fitters the Isawa GLD profiles are consistent across weight and flex. Like many shaft companies, some Oban profiles changed in the lighter or heavier weights in the product matrix. This is an attempt by the shaft designers to match shaft profile to the golfer that would be using lighter or heavier models. However, it is difficult for highly skilled professional fitters to work with a shaft that changes “character” with weight. Moving to a heavier or lighter model that has a different profile will produce a completely different flight and feel.

The ISAWA GLD profile is a very popular successful design.

The Kai’li name is reborn on a Mitsubishi driver shafts. It was used on the second generation Diamana Blue. To remove confusion Mitsubishi has added the name White to this shaft. And it is a White Board Profile.

The Mitsubishi Diamana PD is the fifth generation of the Diamana White Board design. The White Board profiles change very little from generation. The materials improve, the quality improves and there are subtle design changes.

Project X VRTX Golf Shaft Review

Project X VRTX Red and Blue Golf Shaft Review

The True Temper VRTX is a Performance Fitting Center Exclusive Product. In 2019 True Sports, the parent company of True Temper acquired the Ontario based PGMC group which included the Accra brand of golf shafts. PGMC is a distribution company that services the golf club building and fitting community. This acquisition gave True Sports a first class organization to handle sales, service and training for its golf products which include the True Temper and Project X brands. PGMC also handles other True Sports acquisitions, ACCRA, AeroTech and Grafalloy.  I graduated from the Performance Fitting Center adding it to the 9 other certifications I can recall.

The Project X VRTX driver shafts are sold only to PFC club builder / fitters. The VRTX Red is available in 40 to 60 gram models. The VRTX is available in the more traditional 50 to 70 gram range.

The TrueTemper Evenflow Riptide LX is the second of two Riptide X series driver shafts released in late 2021.They contain ultra low modulus prepreg in the tip section. Both the LX and the MX have lower torque that earlier Riptide models which starts in the tip and continues up the shaft.
