New Graphite Design G Series Shafts Just Arrived!

One of the hottest shafts on tour is now in stock!


New for 2011, the G series shaft with X Directional Technology (XDT) is the next generation of premium Graphite Design shafts and is designed to be very adaptable to today’s new head technology. The G series performance characteristics favor a low to mid launch trajectory and mid ball spin.

The new X Directional Technology ( XDT) incorporates the use of the already proven Graphite Design MSI (Material Stiffness Integration) design method as well this new and unique application of graphite fiber alignment throughout the shaft structure. During the development phase of XDT, measurable performance gains were discovered through a more balanced distribution of the graphite fibers within the plies of the shaft design. This proprietary application of XDT has made the new G series the most balanced, versatile high performance golf shaft available today.

Material Stiffness Integration, MSI, is a proprietary design concept by which Graphite Design develops golf shafts. By using a combination of different materials that vary in stiffness and fiber volume we are able to produce the best playing golf shafts available. This combination of materials also reduces vibration giving the golfer, shafts that feel better than our competitors.

Composite materials consist of two main components, graphite fiber and resin. The stiffness of each fiber has an impact on how much vibration is transmitted up the shaft affecting the feel of the shaft. The resin acts more like a sponge absorbing the vibrations, creating exquisite feel. Using proprietary design formulas which integrate these materials we able to provide superior performing and feeling golf shafts.

G-series and X Directional Technology (XDT), the next “Generation” in golf shaft design.

    What shaft would be best for me I am 64 hit my 8iron 140 yds and work my driver from fade To draw. Currently playing a 12 degree prolaunch blue

    Al:

    Are you talking about the new G Series or just shafts in general? You can email me at jsummitt@hirekogolf.com to provide me more information as there are a number of ProLaunch Blue shafts (45, 55, 65 and 75), plus I don’t know what flex you are using and if you think it is too stiff or flexible. But in general, Graphite Design shafts have similar stiffness to Grafalloy, so if you are happy with the flex and weight, you can match it up using the matrix above. Where it says light is senior flex.

    Hi Jeff

    I enjoy reading your comments and like to be your customer.

    Presently I am playing with Adam Fast 12 10.5 degree driver
    fitted with Bassara UL Hawk 43 regular shaft. I am 63 yrs Asian
    and I hit this driver 220 metres.

    I am thinking of changing to the G Series 40 grms lite as I feel I can drive further because the shaft is lighter.

    Can you advise if this is the right decision.

    Tks and regards

    Steve

    Steve:

    The Bassara UL 43 and the G40 are both the same weight range. You may perhaps see a slightly higher ball flight, but don’t expect a noticable change.

    Hello Jeff,
    Reading the article above on the G=series shaft, I was wondering if my 86-91 mph swing speed is suitable for a reg g40 driver shaft.
    I would like to try a lighter weight shaft.
    Thanks for your help
    Will

  6. Jeff Summitt says:

    Will,

    As long as you have a long, full fluid swing, you could be a candidate for the G40. If it is less than a smooth swing, you might be able to get away with the S-flex in that series or jump up and use the G50 in R-flex.
