A WORD ABOUT SHAFT “EGO”
It never made sense to us that golfers would knowingly play a driver shaft that was too heavy or too stiff. Golfers are some of the most inventive and detail-oriented people on the planet. There has to be more to this than ego, we thought.
And as it turns out, there is. The way most golf shafts are made creates inconsistencies that make a shaft “wobble” during the swing. These inconsistencies are known as “spine.” Golfers can feel this, and they can prefer a shaft that’s heavier and/or stiffer to try to counteract the effect of spine. Sometimes it helps, sometimes it hurts. But it’s far from optimal.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT TPT SHAFT
The way TPT shafts are made, there is no spine. This is one of the reasons golfers tell us that our shafts feel more stable than other shafts: even our softer flexes.
Because of the differences in the way our shafts perform, we have chosen to sell them exclusively through fitters. These fitters have been individually vetted by our team and fully trained on how to fit TPT shafts.
GOING SOFTER TO SWING HARDER?
We believe in the power of custom fitting and see it as the only way to ensure that golfers are getting the most performance possible out of a TPT shaft. That being said, there are some things some golfers may want to know before their TPT fitting.
A benefit of playing TPT is that golfers are often able to use a more flexible shaft. This often creates faster swing speeds through better energy transfer (i.e. more shaft “kick”).
Because TPT shafts are more stable and consistent than other driver shafts (no spine), they help golfers contact the sweet spot more often.
Faster swing speeds and improved impact consistency create real performance benefits: longer, straighter, and more consistent drives.
