Project X LS Shafts – Low Launch and Low Spin

August 3rd, 2020

Based on the formula for the original Project X shafts, the new Project X LS (Low Spin) shafts deliver on the promise.  These shafts are heavier in weight (120, 125, 130) in stiff flexes, (6.0, 6.5, 7.0) which is what our stronger players want. Schedule a Fitting to See If These Shafts Will Fit Your Swing Profile! Player Profile These shafts will launch lower and spin roughly 500 rpms lower than the original Project X shafts.  This is increasingly important for today’s elite golfers with fast tempo, transitions and swing speeds with a 6 iron over 95 mph.  Specifically, if you are playing forged players irons like Mizuno MP-20, Titleist MB or CB, Srixon  Z785 or Z blade, TaylorMade p760 or TW, these will be shafts you should consider.

Project X IO Shafts – (Individually Optimized)

August 3rd, 2020

The new Project X IO shafts are designed for players looking for the best steel weighted shafts that optimize launch, spin and shot dispersion.   These shafts acknowledge that slower swing speeds and smoother tempo players generally may need higher ball flight. Design Based on the design of Project X and Pxi shafts, these shafts get slightly heavier (5 grams) in the stiffer flexes.  The launch and spin also gets slightly lower as the shafts get stiffer and heavier.  This is by design as stronger players may want heavier, stiffer, lower launching shafts. Schedule a Fitting to See Which of These Shafts May Fit Your Swing! Specifications These shafts are available in taper tip (.355″) only in the following categories: Description                                          5.5 Flex                   6.0 Flex                6.5 Flex Weight                                                     105 gr                       110...

Making Mid-Season Golf Club Adjustments

July 19th, 2020

How is your golf game going so far?  You are probably playing more golf this year and, if you are like most golfers, usually there are some portions of your game that may need a mid-season adjustment.  Luckily, we have covered most of the problem areas so here is a recap to help you analyze what areas of your golf bag may need looking into: Maybe you need to come in and take advantage of our lifetime fitting! What Clubs Are Hurting You the Most? When we go through an interview with our customers about their equipment, we note specifically what areas of their game need improvement.  Is it driving?  Fairway to green?  Wedge approach shots?  Chipping?  Putting? The first place to look is penalty shots.  Are certain clubs going OB and costing you strokes? Second, look at approach shots.  Are you always short of the green? Next, look at your chipping and bunker play.  Can you get up and down from next to the green?  Are sand shots killing you? Finally, or maybe we should look at this one first, how many putts do you have in 18 holes?  The goal should be 30 or less. By looking at... Read More

LA Golf Shafts Introduces TRONO and OLYSS Shafts

July 6th, 2020

LA Golf Shafts (LAGP) is creating some very interesting shaft designs for a wide variety of golfers.  Their first introductions, the TRONO and OLYSS are designed for stronger players, with the TRONO being developed in conjunction with Bryson DeChambeau.    Later this month, the AXS line will be introduced for moderate to slow swing speeds and a variety of launch conditions. TRONO  This series of shafts is designed to have a very firm mid section, a stiff, yet responsive tip and a softer butt section for delivering more feel.  Designed for players with swing speeds over 105 mph and medium to fast transitions, this shaft is also lower launch and lower spin than competitors in the marketplace.  Available in 65 gr and 75 gr in S, X and TX flexes.  The 55 gr shaft is not available at this time but should be released in the next 30-60 days. OLYSS The unique blend of Zylon/Carbon weave in the butt section of this shaft gives it a slightly counterbalanced property for use in today’s heavier driver heads.  The profile of this shaft creates a more low-mid to mid launch and low-mid to mid spin.  Available in 55, 65 and 75 grams,...

June 15th, 2020

When Mitsubishi Chemical Golf introduced the TENSEI AV Blue shaft in 2019, it was an immediate hit with golfers that like a firmer feel in the butt and midsection of the shaft.   The addition of the AV (Aluminum Vapor) fiber does the trick.  Leveraging on the success of the original TENSEI CK and CK Pro models, the new TENSEI AV RAW Series will make the stronger players jump to this series!  If you liked the original TENSEI you will LOVE the AV! Design The TENSEI AV Raw shafts are designed with ultralight carbon fiber materials, but with actually a heavier per ton weight as there is less resin content.  This allows Mitsubishi designers to create lighter yet stronger shafts.  Resin is what holds the carbon fiber material together but it is notorious for creating potential weak spots or uneven performance in the shaft.  The real design coup is the exposed Aluminum Vapor weave in the butt section which gives these shafts the firm feeling and consistent performance.  And it looks cool!  Find out more here… Sign up for a Driver/Wood Fitting to See Which TENSEI AV Raw Shaft Will Work for YOU!

May 25th, 2020

Our Best Performing Iron Shafts.  Updated for 2019-20. We fit a LOT of different golfers every year and the shafts we put into their irons (and wedges) is determined by our BGF Fitting System, TrueFitClubs Fitting Wizard and player testing during the fitting.  Our fitting recommendations include length of iron, shaft weight, shaft trajectory and spin profile, shaft flex, and swing weight.  Loft and lie are determined by launch monitor testing.  The recommendations are determined by a golfers physical characteristics (height, weight, wrist crease-to-floor), strength (distance), launch characteristics (actual and desired trajectory, spin, dispersion), and swing dynamics (tempo, transition and release point). Book Your Fitting to See Which of These Hot Shafts May Fit YOUR Swing. When we test in our dynamic fitting sessions, we choose 4-5 shafts that match the BGF Fitting System recommendations, and then test on TrackMan for performance with a head chosen by our fitters and the golfer.  Once we determine the best performing shaft, we try different heads to narrow down the selection.  When using our TrueFitClubs Fitting Wizard, we rely on our golfers description of their shot shape and desired results. Bottom line is that these shafts have done the best job of increasing... Read More

Best Fairway Woods 2020

April 30th, 2020

It is crazy the performance improvements we are seeing in fairway woods over the last couple of years.  Manufacturers are really upping their game not only with new materials, but new designs that are giving golfers more choices in lofts and head size.  Whether you use your fairway woods mostly off the tee or love the Heaven Wood (7 wood) or Divine Nine (9 wood), we will help you pick some of the best heads and shafts. Getting the RIGHT Shaft As usual, from our perspective, the proper shaft in your fairway woods makes ALL the difference in consistency, accuracy and distance!  If you are struggling with your fairway woods, take a look at our fitting tips in this blog! Schedule Your Fitting NOW! The short answer in fitting fairway wood shafts is to choose a shaft that has a little more weight than your driver, and has a slightly softer tip section to get the ball in the air.  How We Categorized The Best We picked four categories for the Best Fairways for 2020 based upon distance golfers hit their 3 wood.  This is not the best way to categorize them as some players that do not hit their...

OBAN CT-125 Steel Shaft Review

April 18th, 2020

OBAN has filled out their weight categories with the OBAN CT-125 steel iron shafts.  These great shafts complement the CT-115 and CT-100.  When OBAN partnered with Shimada all indications were that the OBAN CT line would be not only great performing, but high quality.  Right on both counts!  The new CT-125 is no exception. Available Lengths and Flexes The CT-125 is a taper tip (.355″), constant weight, discrete length iron shaft.  Available lengths are from 41.5 inches to 36 inches in one-half inch increments.  This gives us professional club builders a lot of options in flexes.  For example, we could build a soft R (Regular) flex starting with a 40.5 inch length for a 6 iron or start with a 38.5 inch length for a 6 iron which would build to X to X+ flex.  Still plenty of shafts to build out the wedges! Quality The measures of quality we look at are weight, balance point, torque, flex (CPM – cycles per  minute) and load profile measured at seven points along the shaft.  These shafts rated 92+ % consistency which is right at the top of steel iron shafts we have tested in this weight class.  Another measure of quality...
