Graphite Design Conquest Shaft: Adding Control and Spin to Your Golf Game

Welcome to another blog from AF Golf! Today, we are excited to talk about the Graphite Design Conquest Shaft, also known as CQ. This unique Graphite Design aims to provide golfers with greater control and the ability to add spin to their shots.

Whether you enjoy playing links golf or frequently play in windy conditions, the CQ shaft may be just what you need to conquer the conditions and course!

Understanding the CQ Shaft

The CQ stands for “conquest,” highlighting the shaft’s ability to help you conquer the golf course. Unlike other shaft designs that focus on low spin and low launch, the CQ shaft takes a different approach. With advancements in golf ball design, there is now a need to add more loft and spin to optimise performance.

The Conquest Shaft is engineered with a softer mid and tip section, which allows for increased spin and lift. However, this does not compromise its strength and stability, making it suitable for golfers with stronger swings as well. The CQ has been a game changer for many golfers, particularly those who prefer to keep the ball low but still require additional spin.

Benefits of the CQ Shaft

One of the significant benefits of the CQ shaft from Graphite Design is its versatility. While it is commonly used in drivers, it can also be an excellent choice for lower lofted fairway woods. Golfers who opt for a 15 or 13.5-degree fairway wood can benefit from the added spin provided by the CQ shaft. This increased spin helps with profile control and makes it easier to turn over the ball.

Moreover, the CQ shaft offers stability and control to aggressive golfers who prefer lower launching shots. This combination of control and spin allows golfers to navigate various wind conditions effectively. If you’re someone who seeks a stable yet low launching option, the CQ shaft may be the perfect fit for you.

Construction and Options

The CQ shaft is constructed using TORAYCA® and M40X, which are designed to make the shaft lighter and stronger. The range of weight options available is extensive, ranging from 50 grams to 80 grams. Whether you prefer a lighter or heavier shaft, there is an option for every golfer.

In terms of flexibility, the CQ shaft comes in various stiffness options, including regular, stiff, and extra stiff. It is crucial to try the different options before making a decision. Each golfer has unique preferences and playing styles, so finding the right fit is essential for optimal performance.


The Conquest Shaft, or CQ, offers golfers the ability to take control of their game and add spin where needed. Its unique design, with a softer mid and tip section, allows for increased lift and spin without compromising stability. Whether you’re a links-style golfer or frequently play in windy conditions, the CQ shaft can be a game changer.

We recommend visiting our store to try out the CQ shaft before making a purchase. The unusual profile of the shaft may not be suitable for every golfer, so it’s essential to experience it firsthand. If the CQ shaft is the right fit for you, we guarantee you’ll see a massive difference in your performance on the course.

So whenever you’re ready, come on in and give it a try. We offer various weight and stiffness options to cater to a wide range of golfers. Take your game to the next level with the Conquest Shaft!

The Odyssey AI One Cruiser: A Game-Changing Putter

Today, we are excited to take a closer look at the AI One Cruiser putter recently released by Odyssey.

This innovative putter is designed to provide golfers with improved distance control and accuracy on the greens. In this blog, we will explore the features and benefits of the AI One Cruiser and why it may be the perfect addition to your golf bag.

Understanding the AI One Cruiser

The AI One Cruiser putter is part of Odyssey’s highly popular AI One putter family. What sets the Cruiser apart is its unique counterbalanced design and slightly longer shaft length. Available in three lengths – 38, 42, and 48 inches – the Cruiser is designed to provide golfers with increased stability and control during their putting stroke.

Exceptional Design and Technology

The AI One Cruiser features five different style options from 3 head designs, including the Ai One DW (Double Wide), The Seven which is available in the armlock and broomstick as well as standard and the highly anticipated Jailbird.

Each head is meticulously designed to optimise performance and provide golfers with confidence on the greens.

The heads are slightly heavier than standard putters, thanks to the longer shafts, which enhances stability and consistency. Additionally, the AI One Cruiser incorporates the same cutting-edge technology found in the standard AI One putters.

The AI face technology, coupled with the strategically placed windows on the putter head, allows golfers to see the technology in action. This helps golfers understand the performance benefits and make more informed decisions during their putting stroke.

Improving Distance Control and Accuracy

One of the key advantages of the AI One Cruiser is its ability to improve distance control. Many golfers struggle with gauging the right amount of force needed to make accurate putts. The counterbalance design and longer shaft length of the Cruiser help golfers achieve a smoother and more consistent stroke, resulting in improved distance control.

Moreover, the AI One Cruiser is an excellent choice for golfers who struggle with short putts. The added stability and control provided by the putter’s design allow golfers to confidently tackle those crucial putts that can make or break a round. Whether you opt for the arm lock, cruiser length, or broomstick length, the AI One Cruiser can help you gain better control over your putting stroke.

Finding the Perfect Fit

Odyssey understands that every golfer is unique, and that’s why they offer a wide range of options with the AI One Cruiser. With 3 head options and adjustable weights, golfers can customise their putter to suit their preferences and playing style. The ability to adjust the weights allows golfers to fine-tune the putter’s performance and achieve the desired feel on the greens. When choosing a putter, it’s essential to consider personal preferences and playing style. Some golfers prefer a putter that allows the ball to die into the hole, while others prefer a more aggressive, ramming style.

The shape, feel, and weight of the putter can significantly impact a golfer’s ability to visualise and execute their desired putting stroke. Finding the right fit can boost confidence and ultimately improve performance on the greens.


In conclusion, the AI One Cruiser putter from Odyssey is a game-changer in the world of golf. Its innovative design, advanced technology, and customisable options make it a top choice for golfers looking to improve their putting performance.

Whether you struggle with distance control or short putts, the AI One Cruiser can provide the stability and control you need to sink more putts and lower your scores.

We highly recommend visiting your local golf store and trying out the AI One Cruiser for yourself. With the guidance of a professional fitter, you can determine the ideal head, length, and weight configuration that suits your game. Don’t miss out on this fantastic new addition to the Odyssey putter family.

Testing The New Odyssey Ai One Milled Putter

We’re testing the new Odyssey Ai One Milled putter following it’s release in November of 2023. 

Odyssey have unveiled an exciting new addition to their putter lineup – the Ai One Milled. This premium putter combines Odyssey’s advanced artificial intelligence face technology with high-end milled construction.

Were able to get our hands on the new Ai One Milled and took it for an extensive testing session on the course. In this review, we will break down the technology, performance, look and feel of this impressive new putter.

Ai One Milled Technology Breakdown

– Milled from a single block of stainless steel for precision shaping and weight distribution

– Face insert made from a titanium alloy to optimize the Ai variable face thickness design

– Odyssey’s Ai computer model analyses tons of putt data to create the optimal face pattern for consistent speeds across the face.

– The pattern is unique to the titanium insert to maximize performance.

– Includes StrokeLab counterbalance shaft weighting – Weight added in the grip end of the shaft for improved balance


We tested the Ai One Milled and loved the results. The most noticeable result was the crisp, responsive feel at impact thanks to the firm titanium face insert. Provides outstanding audible feedback on all putts.

It offers impressive consistency on off-center hits. Mis-hits lose very little speed or accuracy due to the Ai tech, which is offering 24% more consistency in ball speed outcome. Adding to that, the putter rolls the ball smoothly and accurately on well-struck putts with great distance control.

The head shape and StrokeLab weighting create a very stable, balanced putting stroke and it’s easy to align properly with the beautiful contrast in the dark blue finish with the clear presented alignment lines. 

On longer lag putts, the Ai Milled outperformed the competition in holding its line and maintaining speed, even on mishits across the face. At 20+ feet, this increased consistency was very noticeable.

Comparison to Standard Odyssey Ai One

The standard Ai One has a softer White Hot Microhinge insert – providing a quieter, softer feel preferred by some golfers, whereas the Ai Milled gives crisper feedback. Both however, offer consistency on off-center hits, which is a huge benefit to all golfers. 

Both models roll the ball true thanks to the Ai technology, but the milled felt superior on longer putts, but that’s just a matter of preference. It’s definately worth trying both in a FREE custom fitting to make your own choice. 

Available Models

Aesthetics and Custom Options

The Ai One Milled is a stunner with clean lines, a rich bronze finish on the face insert, and a high quality overall appearance with its PVD unique navy blue finish. It really screams premium!

Odyssey offers plenty of customisation options including different hosel designs, lengths, lie angles, grips, and customizable weights.


The Odyssey Ai One Milled checks off all the boxes – advanced tech for improved consistency, pleasing aesthetics, customisable options, and buttery smooth feel. It can compete with any premium milled putter on the market.

For golfers wanting to elevate their putting performance with a top-shelf milled putter packed with the latest innovations, the Ai One Milled is a phenomenal choice.

Full Technology Breakdown


This milled titanium insert was designed using Artificial Intelligence to create the unique contours on the back surface to promote consistent ball speed across the face with the pure milled feel that many golfers prefer.


All the heads in this line are 100% milled for the beauty and precision that the most discerning golfers appreciate.


These putters all feature a beautiful navy blue PVD finish that sets them apart, and complements the milling for a unique and beautiful look.


A lightweight steel shaft with 20-30 grams (depending on the grip) of counterbalance weight in the butt end. This is an evolution of our Stroke Lab Weighting that will appeal to even more golfers.


Available in 5, 10, 15 and 20 grams these removable weights allow you to dial in your head weight to your exact preference.

Putting The NEW Odyssey AI One Putter To The Test

We recently got our hands on the newest putter range from Odyssey. Two incredible models, years in the making that will shape the way putters are designed in years to come. We’re putting the NEW Odyssey AI One putter to the test. 

This putter claims to utilise AI and machine learning to provide the most consistent and effective ball speeds across the entire putter face. Odyssey says it’s taken many years worth of data on player impact points and ball speeds to develop the specialised face patterns.

This new tech could be a game changer, so we took it for a spin on the course to see if it lives up to the hype.

First Look

At first glance, the AI One catches your eye with its sharp blue and white color scheme.

We tested the mallet style #7 head, which with its alignment lines, it felt very clear and easy to use.

While the tech story behind this putter is exciting, it still comes down to performance on the green.

One of the cool elements to this putter is the window on the sole of each style putter. This allows you to see the face from behind with the pattern printed from AI technology to give you, what Odyssey claim to be 24% improved dispersion in ball speeds. 

Putting The NEW Odyssey AI One Putter To The Test

Immediately the AI One felt extremely soft off the face, reminiscent of the classic White Hot insert. Impact felt very smooth and consistent, even on mis-hits.

Ball speed stability was noticeable even on heel and toe strikes and distance control was excellent on longer putts. Roll and accuracy were impressive overall.

Ultimately with the heads appearing mostly the same, the big differences comes down to the sleek look and the obvious results in ball speed from central to off centre hits, due to the AI face inserts. 


Our Verdict

The AI One lives up to its promises. The combination of breakthrough technology and timeless Odyssey feel is a winner. Mis-hits stay online and reach the hole thanks to the face engineering and alignment aids are easy to use.

At just £250, this putter offers tremendous value with its space-age design. We give it a glowing score of 45/50.

Look – 9/10 | Feel 9/10 | Cost 9/10 | Custom Options 9/10 | Performance 9/10

Golfers of all levels should give the Odyssey AI One a roll – it could shave strokes off your game.

The Technology


Designed using Artificial Intelligence, we’ve created contours on the Aluminum backer of the insert which we co-mold to a White Hot Urethane striking surface to promote consistent ball speed across the face with the classic White Hot feel that Tour players and amateurs love.


Our designers and engineers developed a Panlite window, which is a unique automotive grade polymer, that allows us to showcase the unique topology of the back of our insert.


A lightweight steel shaft with 20-30 grams (depending on the grip) of counterbalance weight in the butt end. This is an evolution of our Stroke Lab weighting that will appeal to even more golfers.


These putters all feature a beautiful navy blue PVD finish that really sets them apart and gives them a premium look.


Available in 5, 10, 15 and 20 grams these removable weights allow you to dial in your head weight to your exact preference.
