Graphite Design Tour AD VR Shafts NEW from Diamond Golf

12.53pm 13th October 2018 - New Products

Diamond Golf, Europe’s leading supplier of components to PGA professionals, has announced the immediate availability of the new Graphite Design Tour AD VR range of golf shafts for use in drivers and fairway woods.

The Tour AD VR range (‘designed to Vanquish all Rivals’) feature premium aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials that produce a slightly higher balance point than the current range of Tour AD shaft profiles. It also features FTT – Fast Taper Technology – a faster taper rate from the grip to the lower mid-section of the shaft that creates the feeling of greater club head control at impact and as well as an increase in club head speed.

The Tour AD VR has a shaft profile that is firm to stiff at the butt, medium/firm in the centre section and has a firm tip to promote a mid/high launch angle and low spin rates.

The Tour AD VR also utilizes TORAYCA ® T1100G carbon-fibre pre-preg with NANOALLOY ® technology in the tip section of the shaft for additional stability, exceptional feel and precise ball control.

Designed and manufactured at the Graphite Design Japan factory headquarters, the new Tour AD VR wood shafts are dark blue with white and silver accents and are finished with a matte clear coat finish.

Features & Technology:

  • FTT – Fast Taper Technology
  • TORAYCA ® T1100G carbon-fibre pre-preg with NANOALLOY ® technology for increased stability in the mid to tip region and unsurpassed feel.
  • 50-ton ultra-premium, high modulus, aerospace quality carbon fibre materials.
  • Graphite Design proprietary Material Stiffness Integration (MSI) design philosophy and technology.

Graphite Design golf shafts recorded 51 Global Tour victories in 2017 and have helped large numbers of Tour pros earn well over 200 victories since they started producing golf shafts.  Graphite Design golf shafts continue to be the #1 golf shaft brand on the Japanese JGTO Professional Tour.
