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.
