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.

With LA Golf It’s Time To Be More Athletic And Less Mechanical

With the tour players hitting the ball further and further each year, it is clear there is now the right combination between athleticism and equipment. 

A new custom shaft is hitting our workshop. LA Golf, which many may be familiar with after joining forces with SIK putters. 

Backed by the likes of Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and Michelle Wie, LA Golf have a simple message: The Status Quo, conventional wisdom has always said to swing smooth and to hit it straight, but we say, Swing Harder.

“What I really like about the LA Golf shaft is that when I want to hit one hard, I hit it more consistently in the middle of the face. That is really the biggest reason I changed.”

~ Dustin Johnson

Dustin’s new signature series with LA Golf has propelled him up the rankings in distance and accuracy.

The woods are developed on a constant tapered mandrel, producing a high balance point with a smooth feel. The series is wrapped with a sleek translucent blue coating and is offered in three different weights, allowing for a broad base of players to tap into the feel and performance of DJ’s signature shaft.

“My goal is to create the most repeatable swing possible, and LA Golf makes most consistent shaft I have ever tried.”

~ Bryson DeChambeau

The series features Bryson’s uniquely designed woods and single length irons. Both are produced on LA Golf’s patented 16-sided HD tooling, which has been proven to enhance feel, performance, and durability.

The Series wood shaft focuses on stability and accuracy, resulting in a low launching, low spinning, fairway finder. The new design features more feel in the hands and increased workability for a wide variety of swing types.

 

LAGP GOLF

Outside of Dustin and Bryson’s signature designs there is also 5 more series shafts including: 

L, A, G, P, P-SOHO.

All shafts differ for clubs from woods through to the putter and suit players based on swing swing as well as other factors. 

LA Golf shafts are built around stability and consistency allowing the players to be more athletic and hit the ball harder! The best way to find a shaft to match your game, whether it be irons, driver or putter is to speak with our team.

No More Chipping Woes With The PING ChipR

Are you one of the many golfers who find themselves green side with a real chance at par and walk off with bogey or worse? 

All because your chip failed to get close enough? Or even because you lack confidence with the wedges and fail to create consistent contact?

Well, it is time to say goodbye to your chipping woes with the introduction of the new PING ChipR.

WHAT IS THE PING CHIPR?

Fully engineered for golfers who may lack confidence with their traditional wedge and frequently struggle with chip shots. The ChipR combines elements of a putter and a wedge to improve performance around the greens and lower scores without fear of chunking or blading shots. 

Unlike traditional chippers, the PING ChipR actually looks like a wedge when looking down at the ball, but with the 70º lie angle it sits very much lie a putter. 

Combined with the cambered sole the club can really glide across the surface without fear of the dreaded fat and thin shots. 

With 38º of loft, it is perfect for the trusted bump and run shots around the green side.

Bump and Run

Recommended for shots within 40 yards of the green from the rough or fringe, golfers apply a putting-like stroke to achieve distance control and consistency without fear of chunking or blading shots.  
 

Forgiving Design

The investment-cast, 431 stainless steel head is perimeter weighted for forgiveness, offers a composite cavity badge, and its hydropearl chrome finish repels water. Available to be custom fit for length, loft and lie (10 color codes).
 

Cambered Sole

The cambered sole allows for a smooth transition through the rough and fringe for maximum versatility and consistency. A shallow face height (between putter and wedge), helps ensure reliable contact and performance.
 

MicroMax Grooves

Precision-milled MicroMax grooves (tighter spacing, more grooves), increase ball contact to maintain spin for consistent trajectories and control on chips of every length. The compact profile inspires confidence.  
 

Z-Z115 Shaft

The PING Z-Z115 Wedge shaft is lightweight (111 g) with a lower balance point to allow for more clubhead feel. The 35-inch standard length is customizable.
 

Dyla-wedge Grip

The 360 Dyla-wedge Lite grip, which is ¾-inch longer than a traditional grip and features a reduced taper, allows golfers to choke down for more versatility and trajectory control.

What Is The Purpose Of Grind?

As golf continues to evolve, so to does the equipment. With each brand bringing out new models yearly, it begs the question, how much do the clubs change? Well, each year we see upgrades in materials, styles, COG adjustments and so much more. 

One area that continues to develop is wedge grinds. An important factor that many amateur golfers overlook when choosing a new wedge, and it could be costing you shots.
