Exceptional Feel & Unrivalled Stability – Graphite Design Custom Shafts Are Here!

Exceptional feel and unrivalled stability are just two of many factors that we want to offer our customers in a fitting session. 

Every club we offer comes standard with stock shafts which will all hold their own  attributes from different kick points and torque rates, but when it’s time to really up the feel and consistency in the contact, looking at a custom shaft can offer the perfect solution to better ball striking and consistent in flight. 

At AFGolfStore, we have always had the option to offer a custom shaft over standard stock, however, up until now it is not been a topic we have shouted about due to our limited access in fittings.

However, with the introduction of new custom shafts to our workshop and fitting studios, such as the incoming LAGP shafts and now the Graphite Design Tour AD shafts we have a great selection to ensure our customers seeking a higher profile custom shaft have the options to try at their disposal. 

WHAT TOUR AD SHAFTS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN A CUSTOM FITTING?

Read about them in the drop down tabs. 

The Tour AD DI “DEEP IMPACT” is designed to provide golfers with more power and stability in a golf shaft. Designed and manufactured exclusively at the Graphite Design factory headquarters in Japan, the Tour AD DI orange colored option received a cosmetic refresh in the Spring of 2020 and are available in 50g R2 (Lite), R1 (Regular) and S flex, 60g SR (Stiff Regular), S, X and TX (Tour X-Stiff) flex, 70g S, X and TX (Tour X-Stiff) flex and 80g S, X and TX (Tour X-Stiff) flex.  The unique shaft profile and designs of the Tour AD DI wood shafts remain exactly the same and only the cosmetics of the orange version have been re-freshened.

The Tour AD DI is our first shaft design that was integrated with Toray Company’s original NANOALLOY material technology in the tip section of the shaft.  This material technology has now come to be known as “DI Technology”.  This unique material technology promotes additionally shaft stability without the loss of feel and allows the player to create greater club head speed resulting in greater ball speed while still providing exceptional feel and control.

  • DI TECHNOLOGY- Consisting of the advanced, 1st generation of Toray Composites NANOALLOY Material Technology for increased stability in the mid to tip region and unsurpassed feel.
