The R.I.P. (Reverse Interlaminar Placement) employs patent-pending technology and exclusive materials to completely transform the shaft from the inside out. The R.I.P. Technology repositions the materials and shaft design patterns to maximize the flexural and torsional performance characteristics of the carbon fiber. Through the use of computer modeling technology and exclusive materials, Aldila created a revolutionary shaft with optimum flex and torque characteristics with incredible feel. In addition, the hoop strength, or cross-sectional stability of the shaft is also increased to provide greater stability near the clubhead for maximum shot control.
The R.I.P. Beta white version is a slightly higher launching (mid) than the original stiffer tipped R.I.P Alpha version (skull with red eyes) that has been PGA Tour tested and PGA Tour proven.
