The 2012 Shaft Fitting Addendum is Now Available

Don’t live in the Stone Age anymore, especially with the high cost of shafts today. Get the information you really need to compare one shaft to another. For 20 consecutive years, the annual Shaft Fitting Addendum has been the number one resource available for clubmakers and ordinary golfers to find invaluable information about golf shafts. The 2012 Shaft Fitting Addendum has just been updated with many of the shafts available to you today.

If you are looking to advance your knowledge on the ever-confusing world of shafts, take this opportunity to download the 2012 Shaft Fitting Addendum. This is a companion piece to one of the best books written about shafts called the Modern Guide to Shaft Fitting. And the best part is both of these books are available for free. This is just another example of how Hireko is helping out clubmakers, club fitters and fellow golfers alike by providing you with such indispensable information so you can make more well-informed choices when it comes to purchasing new equipment.

How Do I Use the DSFI Information?
If you have seen some of our cheesy videos, you might have noticed I don’t exactly have a stellar swing. But how many of us really do? Shaft fitting has nothing to do with age, handicap, sex or religion. In fact, it only has to deal with strength, tempo, length of swing and personal preferences such as weight and feel (a factor of stiffness distribution and torque). That is why the DSFI (Dynamic Shaft Fitting Index) works to help identify shafts that a player can use. The DSFI starts with clubhead speed or the golfer’s driver or 5-iron distance and be able to make appropriate shaft selections.

For instance my swing speed hovers in the 95 mph range as Father Time has decreased that of late. I would describe my swing as a moderate tempo which is gradual buildup of speed at the top of the swing, accelerate, release the club early and decelerate prior to impact. Using our DSFI system that would mean I should look for shafts with a DSFI rating between 92 and 97% of my swing speed (87-92). Don’t worry we do the math for you.

Guess what, when I look at all the shafts that I hit well they pretty much fall in that narrow range. Some of which are R flex and others S flex. That was one of the reasons for the testing I have done for the past 23 years is to help somewhat putting a number on stiffness in a world where shaft standards don’t exist.

What Type of Information Will You Find?
For those that are not already familiar with the Shaft Fitting Addendum, the first thing you will find out is not all R-flex shafts are created equal – that is in terms of flex, torque, bend point, etc. as every manufacturer are their own standard. In reality, there are no industry standards for shafts and the reason why this book serves as an invaluable guide. Consistency has been the key to this text as each of the well over 3000 shafts and 50,000 measurements has been conducted by one individual (yep, that’s me) using the same set of procedures and equipment for the past 23 years.

There are 19 published specifications listed for each shaft that include:
Flex, Uncut Shaft Weight, Tip Diameter, Butt Diameter, Uncut Shaft Balance Point, Cut Shaft Balance Point, Completed Club Balance Point, Total Assembled Club Weight, Head Weight, Grip Weight, Cut Shaft Weight, Completed Club Frequency, Butt Deflection, Tip Deflection, T/B Ratio, Cut Shaft Torque, Raw Shaft Torque, Club Length (and wood bore type) and DSFI (Dynamic Shaft Fitting Index) Rating
Some of the specifications may not be important to you or only help you with assembly such as knowing how much head weight you can expect at a specific length. In other cases, there are several key parameters as shown in the following table which can be considered the shaft’s DNA.

Common Denominators
This is just a sampling of shafts in the Shaft Fitting Addendum which happen to be shafts that I have currently in my stable of drivers. I have experimented putting shafts in that were from L flex to double XX, super light shaft to much heavier ones, low torque to high all to see how they perform to my swing. These widely varied shafts just happen to be ones I found by trial and error that found their way into my bag.

As you can see there are some common denominators, most notably butt and tip deflection in my case.  If you scour the driver chart in Chapter 5 in the Shaft Fitting Addendum, you will find there are many other shafts with similar DSFI ratings. Some of which that have much different DNA, but others that do that could be potential candidates for me to try.  In the same token, you can look at the shaft DNA of those shafts you didn’t care for and remember to avoid using shafts that had very similar test results.

The 192 page 2012 Shaft Fitting Addendum is broken down into 5 chapters, but you don’t have to download everything.  The first chapter provides the legends of what each of the specifications are and we would encourage you to read that carefully.  Chapters 2 and 5 are the nuts and bolts of the 2012 Shaft Fitting Addendum with Chapter 2 showing the data and Chapter 5 providing the how to use the information with the master shaft fitting charts in order of stiffness.

In addition, club fitters or even ordinary golfers can look for suitable replacement shafts that may not exist anymore by looking through the archived shafts (Chapters 3 and 4). These are all the shafts tested that are no longer available but may contain information on shafts you have hit well in the past. As I mentioned previously, matching shafts of similar cut weight, frequency, cut torque and tip and butt deflections will help you find that one shaft you owned previously that they liked so dearly.

Hot New Fairway Wood: The Power Play Caiman X2 Raw Power 3 Wood In Stock!

Last year the most talked about golf club was the belly putter, but this year is going to mark in a long, long time that oft forgotten category of fairway woods will get its day in the spotlight and justly so. Let’s face it, not everyone is on the hybrid bandwagon and still enjoys the larger, confidence building profile that a fairway wood has to give. While there are low lofted hybrids, they still don’t produce the much needed distance of a #3 wood. However, all this talk of today’s hot fairway woods can’t be mentioned without including the all-new Power Play Caiman X2 Raw Power #3 wood.

The Raw Power Story
If you are not hip to the Caiman Raw Power story, this short video will help explain it. But in a nutshell it was designed to solve the most common problem of golfers everywhere – hitting their 3 wood as solidly as their #5 wood. In addition, those seeking additional distance, your wish was granted by virtue of the material choice used in its construction. Longer and straighter is the Raw Power mantra.


Why all of the recent hype on fairway woods?
In some circle, it has to do with the strict USGA rules and regulation regarding driver designs as they are already pushed to the limits of what manufacturers can do with the materials at hand. However, fairway woods have gone pretty much under the radar for a while. Sure, there have been some hot fairways such as some the Tour Edge Exotics models. But for the most part consumers haven’t demanded higher performance fairway woods or at least their pocketbooks. Major manufacturer are gambling that this is the next big trend in golf.

How to put the HOT in hotter
This isn’t marketing BS, but there are indeed some hotter fairways woods available. This all has to do with material choice. In the past 30 years, the vast majority of fairway woods have been made wholly from stainless steel which has worked out quite well for the size, strength and weight requirements. But there are limitations and this is where different materials are needed to increase performance. One is the family of what are called maraging steels.

The purpose of utilizing a thin maraging steel face insert allows the face to flex and produce a higher coefficient of restitution or rebound effect, just like the use of titanium in modern drivers as a way to increase the ball velocity coming off the face. There is a weight savings as well that allows the golf club designer to place more weight elsewhere in the head to improve launch angles, spin rates and increase forgiveness. Maraging steel is used in lieu of titanium because it is easily bonded (welded) to a stainless steel frame. The reason it is not used in all fairway woods is simple – cost! When you look at name brand clubs with a maraging face it usually adds on $30 (at the minimum) over the same design with a normal stainless face.

Going a step beyond maraging steel, you will start to see more titanium fairways introduced to the market. However, it won’t come cheap. For name brand clubs, you are now looking at a $100 add on compared to a similar design in stainless steel. When you figure that the average golfer carries 2 or even 3, that starts to add up in a hurry.

Hirekoize It
While this term is not yet officially in the dictionary, Hireko is able to give the same higher performance but at the price that other manufacturers are offering their standard fare products for. So if you want better performance from a “hot” fairway wood without breaking your piggy bank, the Power Play Caiman X2 Raw Power is it.

New 2012 iSight Putters Just Arrived!

The Acer i-Sight is a premium series of stainless steel putters combining classic designs with new age ideas. The key feature is the alignment feature. Located in the center of the cavity, the side walls of the raised alignment bar are painted red. If you only see one red side wall, then your eyes are either too far inside or over the line of sight which will make it more difficult to hole your putt. However, if you see both red sides with the putter resting on the ground at the center of the sole, you know your eyes are directly over the line of sight and more likely to drain your putt. Each Acer i-Sight putter features an exquisite silver glass bead finish and the face has been CNC milled with horizontal micro-grooves giving the machined look of today’s high end putters. There are dedicated models available specifically for belly and long putters.
Acer i-Sight Putter Santa Barbara – Clubhead $24.95 ea.

Demonstrating clutch play and a solid swing with Dynamic Gold in his irons and DG Spinner in his wedges, the Transitions victor finished with a 5-under 66 and then wrapped up a four-man playoff on the first extra hole. A spectacular 7-iron shot out of the rough put him in position for a birdie and the win. The victory was the seventh PGA TOUR win this year for Dynamic Gold shafts and one that elevated the champion back to the No. 1 in the world.

“The Transitions Championship delivered more exciting down-to-the-wire drama on the PGA TOUR this week, and we’re very pleased to see players trusting Dynamic Gold and DG Spinner to deliver clutch performance when everything is on the line,” says Chad Hall, director of product marketing and global tour operations for True Temper Sports. “As we all saw on Sunday, accuracy and consistency can make all the difference and those are the key reasons why Dynamic Gold is the number one selling golf shaft in the world.”

The Number One selling shaft in golf, Dynamic Gold is preferred by skilled players seeking a low, penetrating ball flight. Dynamic Gold has earned world-renown respect as the winningest shafts in the history of the game. The DG Spinner’s unique design incorporates a special section along the length of the shaft that decreases launch angles by as much as three degrees and increases the ball’s spin rate by as much as 700+ rpm.

Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue and Red with Speedcoat Shafts

As spring has almost sprung, I have had a chance to do what I like best – to test and play several of the new products that just recently been introduced to the market.  Two of them are the new Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue and ProLaunch Red with Speedcoat wood shafts.  There is a third driver shaft that is new this year from Grafalloy called Blackbird, but I want to talk very soon about that one in a separate post.

Some products can be as different as black and white.  In this case I should say blue and red as these are two completely different shafts in terms of who they are for.  The Blue is the softer tipped higher launching shaft geared more for the everyday player like me.  The Red has a much stiffer tip section to produce a lower launch angle and geared for the more aggressive golfer who has more of a late release.

I’m feeling Blue in a very good way

If you are familiar with some of the more recent Grafalloy products you will have a general idea of how they play.  The ProLaunch Blue with Speedcoat is more like the older ProLaunch Blue 55, but lighter, slightly stiffer and with a bit less torque. Even though the shaft is supposed to be high launching it doesn’t feel like a flexible or low kick shaft.  The short parallel tip section provides a lot of stability without sacrificing feel. I was gaming the R-flex shaft in one of the Power Play Adrenaline drivers with the Lamkin R.E.L. Neon Blue grip at 46” and a D4 swingweight. The best part, I was absolutely bombing it and the honeymoon ain’t over yet as it has worked its way in my short rotation of drivers.

At my height I normally play longer drivers, but at 45.5” you can expect a normal swingweight range with standard weight driver heads.

Are you Red instead?

For me, the Red does not produce the low trajectory that the description suggests.  In fact I had this shaft in an identical lofted and face angle Adrenaline driver, 46” and D4 swingweight. But this time with a red R.E.L. grip and I seriously doubt the color of the grip has anything to do with it.  Rather, the shaft is very tip stiff, just like the older Prolite 3.5 and ProLaunch Red.  It has been my experience on countless occasions that a very stiff tip prevents the shaft from bowing closed so I end up with a high block.  As I said these are two entirely different shafts and depends upon which camp you fall into which one you will like.  If you have a tendency to pull or hook your drives, then this is the better option.

What is unique about the shaft is the stiffness to weight ratio.  Out of the countless shafts I have tested over the years, this one is the lightest and stiffest one to date.  So those who want a lightweight shaft option to generate more clubhead speed but normally can’t use a shaft this light due to directional control problems, this is one you might you can.

Speedcoat Technology

Both of these two shafts share one similarity and that is the special paint that has a little texture to it instead of the smooth graphite shafts you are accustomed to. If you look at the silkscreen on the shaft it simply says Speed Coat Technology.  Because the USGA frowns upon anything different, I can’t really tell you anything about the paint other than what I already did, but I’ll let you infer what the name implies.
