New 2012 Apollo Shafts

Shadow Graphite
The Apollo Shadow is a 100% graphite shaft well suited for the mid handicapper. Apollo performance in a mid torque and mid weight design allows you to fit the majority of players. Updated graphics for 2012 indicate tighter tolerances.

Apollo Shadow Graphite $13 ea.

 

Shadow UL
The Shadow UL is an excellent ultralight graphite shaft designed for the mid handicapper. Light 62g weight allows for faster swing speeds, while the mid torque provides accuracy without feeling too harsh. Updated graphics for 2012 indicate tighter tolerances.

Apollo Shadow UL Graphite $13.50 ea.

 

Shadow FL
The Apollo Shadow FL (Feather Lite) is the lightest shaft in the series for those players with a smoother tempo looking at improved trajectory and distance. Updated graphics for 2012 indicate tighter tolerances.

CWS (Constant Weight Shaft)
Designed for the more advanced players who desire to produce tour trajectory type golf shots, Apollo’s new CWS (Constant Weight Steel), taper tip iron shafts have a firm tip section which produces the piercing trajectory favored by the best players. Each shaft within the set weighs the same due to the constant weight design providing greater shaft consistency. This results in superior distance control and a tighter shot dispersion, especially in the scoring clubs where the constant weight concept is needed most. Each shaft is manufactured to exacting weights and balance point positions to ensure consistent flex matching through the set.

Constant Weight is a shafting concept in which all of the shafts in a given set of irons will weigh the same regardless of their length. This does not occur with unitized, parallel tip shafts or even certain taper tip shafts that start out as a master shaft, tip trimmed to increase the stiffness and then swaged to form the tapered tip section. As more material is tip trimmed, the shaft becomes progressively lighter the shorter the shaft. This is described as a Descending Weight shaft.

If the shaft weight is greater with the same step pattern and length then this equates to increased wall thicknesses. The byproducts are an increasein the overall weight of the club, steeper frequency slope, the tip section becomes stiffer and it even lowers the torque, especially the shorter the shaft. This is why touring professional prefer the constant weight version of a shaft more so than the descending mass model when available for greater control. One reason you also find a discrete length for each iron in the set.

Designed to fit major manufacturer’s pro-line irons and wedges requiring 0.355″ taper tip shafts.

Apollo CWS Steel Tapered $12.20 ea.

    I am a senior and been using graphite R flex shafts for well over a decade now. I recently tried an older model Taylormade irons (RAC7) with ultralite shaft and it felt perfect for me. Does Hireko have something similar? I am not particular about brand names. I just need a little bit of help with distance. On a good day I can go a bit over 200 yards with my driver. And I am not a big guy. Your advice, please. Thanks.

    Take a look at the Apollo Shadow UL.
