POWAY, Calif. – For the 11th time in the past 12 PGA events, Aldila has captured the wood and hybrid shaft manufacturer counts. Led by their latest shaft technology, RIP® (Reverse Interlaminar Placement), “The Hottest Shafts In Golf” had nine more wood shafts and six more hybrid shafts in play at the WGC-Cadillac Championship than the next leading shaft manufacturer, according to the Darrell Survey. At the Puerto Rico Open, Aldila had 26 more wood shafts in play than their closest competitor and tied for the most hybrid shafts in play.
When designing the RIP®, Aldila completely turned golf shaft design and performance inside out through the use of computer modeling technology and exclusive carbon fiber materials. Aldila’s Tour proven RIP Technology provides a shaft design with optimum flex and torque characteristics with increased cross-sectional stability throughout the tip area for greater shot control.
Aldila’s latest addition to the RIP series is the Phenom featuring the Hyperbolic Flex Zone. The RIP Phenom has proven to be extremely accurate on the Tour. The Most Accurate Driver on the PGA Tour plays the Phenom in his driver and leads the Tour with an overall Driving Accuracy Percentage of 74.58 percent compared to the Tour’s average of 58.52 percent.

“The new RIP Phenom incorporates Aldila’s Tour proven RIP Technology® with a unique shaft design to create a new and innovative flex profile for maximum distance and control known as the Hyperbolic Flex Zone,” said Stewart Bahl, Aldila’s Marketing Manager. “This new technology features a stiff tip section for optimal launch and spin control with a very firm butt section for an incredible stable feel, while the center section of the shaft is softer to provide unmatched kick through impact for maximum ball speed.”
At the Puerto Rico Open, the second most accurate driver was also playing the RIP Phenom in his Driver. He finished the tournament with an average of 78.6 percent compared to the Field’s average of 60.71 percent.
