True Temper has added two new light weight steel shafts to their iron shaft product offerings. Both of these new shafts offer their proprietary Vibration Suppression System (VSS) for golfers looking for relief from tendonitis or arthritis and do not want to switch to graphite shafts. Here is our take on these new shafts:
ELEVATE 95 with VSS
Designed to launch higher and spin more than a traditional light weight steel shaft, these shafts are a good match for some of today’s modern low-spinning iron heads. Great option here to help drop and stop on the green. These shafts come in R and S flex in parallel tip (.370″) that allow us as club builders to dial in very specific stiffness numbers. As with most iron shafts under 100 grams, do not expect these shafts to feel as stiff as say a Dynamic Gold S300. We expect them to build to about a full flex softer than their stated flex. Again, all of this depends upon length and swing weight. Perfect for players with smooth tempos looking for an alternative to graphite.
Dynamic Gold 95 with VSS
Based upon some of the designs True Temper has done for the Japan market, these shafts are the lightest weight shafts True Temper has made. Again, designed for higher launch and higher spin, these shafts will help players needing more stopping capability on the green. These shafts are designed to be constant weight in taper tip (.355″) and relatively short length. Only available in R300 and S200 . This means these would be good shafts for juniors graduating from graphite junior sets and certain lady golfers seeking a slightly heavier shaft.
As with all of our shaft recommendations, the BGF Fitting System will recommend the proper length, shaft weight, flex, launch and spin, and swing weight. Combined with our dynamic fitting process, we will combine the proper shaft with either your head or a new head to optimize your performance!
