Supercharge Your Game with Grafalloy’s New ProLaunch Counterbalanced Shafts

Grafalloy Supercharge Shafts
One trend you are seeing more and more of in golf shaft technology is counterbalancing or shifting the center of mass closer to the butt end of the shaft.

This concept can help many golfers achieve greater distance. So let’s roll up our sleeves and begin to understand the science behind this phenomenon.

Grafalloy introduced two new shafts to their ProLaunch franchise called the ProLaunch Blue Supercharged and the ProLaunch Red Supercharged and we will use these for our examples. The Supercharged versions have a balance point or distribution of weight that is approximately 3 inches closer to the butt end than the original ProLaunch shafts. Believe me, that is a huge difference!

Balance point comparison
Supercharged Balance Point
This diagram shows the relative balance points of the clubs as well as the shafts (with the ProLaunch Blue Supercharged shown on the bottom.) If made to the same length, grip and head weights, the drivers shafted with Supercharged shafts will end up with a swingweight that is 3 points lighter. To put that in perspective, that would be the equivalent of adding a 12 gram counterweight in the butt end of the grip, yet doesn’t add to the total weight of the club.

Counterweighting advantage
There are a few ways to hit the ball further. One of which is to make the club longer. However, by doing so, makes the club feel head heavy. For each ½” increase in length, you will experience a 3 swingweight point change. So with the Supercharged shafts, you can make the club ½” longer and you will have a normal swingweight and that could result in a small increase in swing speed and leverage to hit the ball. Remember, even if you only end up swinging the club 2 mph more, that will result into an additional 5 yards if you make a solid hit. Not too shabby.

Acer XV Driver Sole CloseupIf you struggle with a longer length club, then here is the second advantage to counterbalanced shafts – you can increase the head weight. What was long considered standard weight for a driver head (200g) is no longer a given with modern heads. With adjustable adapter heads, often times they weigh more because of the extra pieces and parts and why you are seeing more and more counterweighted shafts on the market today. Then you also have heads that can be altered in weight with screws, like the Gravity Port in our Acer XV series. Think of driving a nail in the wall. The heavier the hammer, the more force is applied and the easier it is to drive the nail. This works the same way with golf clubs.

Here is a matrix of the various options using the Grafalloy ProLaunch Blue Supercharged with our Acer XV driver. The standard weight with the stock screw (7 grams) is 200g. Using the 2 gram weight you can reduce the head weight to 195 grams for longer assemblies and with the 12 gram weight you can increase the head weight to 205 grams. Five grams one way or another constitutes a 3.5 swingweight change.

Grafalloy Prolaunch Supercharged MatrixProLaunch Red versus Blue
To select which Grafalloy ProLaunch Supercharged shaft to use is very easy. If you are looking to hit the ball higher choose the Blue. For a lower launching trajectory, opt for the Red. The Red is slightly heavier and stiffer, but the biggest difference occurs in the first 18” of the shaft where the ProLaunch Red Supercharged is stiffer as shown in this deflection chart.Grafalloy Supercharged DeflectionsIf you are searching for more distance, counterbalance shafts could be the answer. So hopefully you have a better understanding of what ifs and whys.

At Hireko, our business is to sell components, like heads, shafts and grips. So it goes against my best interest to show you a new product that can prolong the life of the common grip. This product is called Pro-Fix Get A Grip and it’s more than a grip cleaner – it is a grip restorer and revitalizing solution. Hey, I am the biggest skeptic out there when it comes to products like this. What ever happened to good old soap and water and a soft bristled brush?

I put the Pro-Fix Get A Grip through the paces to see if the product truly worked. I have a 20 year old set of irons sitting in the storage with slick, dry rotted and likely moldy Jumbo Green Victory’s on them. These would be totally unplayable without re-gripping. After spraying the grips down with the convenient pump sprayer and wiping them off with a clean towel, in no time at all the outer surface was restored that these clubs could see daylight once again on the course.

I tried them not only on old grips, but new as well as all sorts of other materials from rubber, leather, elastomeric and synthetic grips like Winn. The only grip that could not be restored was an old Winn wrapped-style grip which had lost the sheen and should have been replaced years ago.

Download the 2015 Hireko Golf Equipment CatalogThe Pro-Fix Get A Grip Grip Restorer doesn’t have any oily residue or odor and really should be a product that any golfer wanting a secure grip and to keep their investment longer should own. I am almost sure that this could be used on all sorts of other types of grips besides those used in golf. Just don’t tell my bosses or our valued grip vendors that I am letting the cat out of the bag because you didn’t hear about this product from me.
