LA Golf L Series Iron Shaft Review

LA GOLF L-Series Taper Iron Golf Shaft Review

Many players with wrist and forearm pain look to carbon fiber shaft to dampen the ball strike shock wave. However most carbon fiber shafts are not available in the weight range they have always played. And very few carbon fiber iron shafts are 0.355 taper tip, constant weight sets.

The LA Golf L series is a heavy constant weight set with the stiffness we would expect in the 120 gram weigh range.

LA GOLF DJ Signature Series Driver Golf Shaft Review

LA GOLF DJ Signature Series Driver Shaft Review

LA  Golf added a new partner recently, Dustin Johnson. He has play the same shaft for many years. He now has one of the top shaft designers that I know, Jeff Meyer, working with him developing and testing profiles made to the highest radial consistencies I see. The new materials allow for unique flag layouts resulting in smoother profiles. I publish smoothed profiles here and in the professional database. But while entering the data I see the raw data profiles. What I see in the DJ Signature Series smoothed curves is not much different than I see in the raw data graphs.

LA GOLF Bryson Signature Series Driver Shaft Review

LA GOLF Bryson Signature Series Driver Shaft Review

The LA Golf Bryson Signature is a radical change from the Trono, the past shaft designed for Bryson. Bryson works closely with the new shaft designer at LA Golf and I am told he is in search of more feel and is less inclined toward the super stiff shafts he once favored.

OBAN Isawa GLD Driver Shaft Review

OBAN ISAWA GLD Golf Driver Shaft Review

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

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.
