Introducing The New Apollo Acculite 85 Shaft! In Stock!

Apollo Acculite 85 Is The Ultimate Shaft For Smooth To Moderate Swing Tempo Golfers.

“The Apollo Acculite 85 has a very responsive tip yet provides an incredible combination of both feel and accuracy”, states Jeff Summitt, Hireko’s Technical Director.  “The cut weight is merely 10 grams more than some of the most popular graphite iron shafts. For those looking at graphite as an option to decrease overall weight to reduce fatigue and to increase swing speed and distance should highly consider this shaft.  The Apollo Hireko Acculite 85 ShaftAcculite 85 is geared more for golfers with smooth and moderate swing tempos. There are no surprises as this shaft plays true to the flex.  In performance testing this shaft it worked well not only in irons but in our hybrids as well.”

    What are the bend points for the regular flex shaft? Also, what are the bounce angles for your new acer wedges?

  2. Jeff Summitt says:

    I would classify the ball flight to be mid to high. The bounce angle on the new XC wedges are 10, 14 and 10 respectively.

    Jeff,
    Are the Acculite 85’s similar to the SK Fiber Tour Trac 80’s you use to carry?

    Thanks!

    Larry:

    From a fitting standpoint, these shafts might very well fit the same type of swing profile. But the Acculite 85 is actually a steel shaft that happens to be extremely lightweight.

    I want to make a club to bridge the gap between my Prophet 5 wood and my 3 iron. I am considering the Prophet hybrid. Would I gain yardage over my 3 iron with the #3 hybrid and the acculite shaft, or would you recommend graphite? Also wondering if the #2 hybrid with a steel shaft would be a better solution. FYI, I have Aldila Gamer graphite on my fairway woods Regular flex. Thanks.

  6. Jeff Summitt says:

    Bob:

    The Prophet #3 hybrid is the same loft and length as a typical 3-iron, but due to the maraging face may hit the ball slightly further. It is hard to say how much or if it will bridge the gap because I am not sure how far you hit each one. Possibly a better solution would be to go to the #2 hybrid (low flight pattern) or the #7 wood (high ball flight).

    Jeff;

    How about the trimming instruction for AccuLite85 R flex?

    Thanks!

    Jeff;

    One more question. I am going to make the iron set with Prophet CNC Forged Iron heads and Acculite 85 shafts. Could you tell me the hosel outside diameter of Prohet CNC Forged Iron heads?

    Thanks again!

    Yoon:

    On the trimming instructions, follow trim chart RR. The OD on the Prophet CNC is 0.540″ (13.7mm).

    Here’s a second request for trimming instructions for the Acculite 85.
