Powered By Cool Clubs S3

Graphite Design teamed up with the leading Custom Fit Club Company in the golf industry – the Cool Clubs. This is to deliver shaft reviews with the most advanced testing technology of Shaft Simulation System (S3). It is an automated and an all-in-one shaft profiling machine which generates the specifications of the shaft in a matter of minutes. Shaft manufacturers provide similar data, but the lack of standards in the industry prevents players from accurate comparisons.

Bend Profile

The Tour AD wood shaft with weight classes of IZ-5,-6,-7,-8 is Firm+ in the tip area, Medium in the middle, and Firm in the butt section. Meanwhile, IZ-4 has a medium butt, medium mid, and soft tip. These profiles help produce high launch angles and low spin. A shaft with a firmer grip, a slightly softer mid-section, and a moderate tip fill the shaft for higher shots while controlling flight with lower spin rates.

Appearance

The Graphite Design AD IZ exhibits an orange and black color scheme. This is an inverse of the Tour AD DI – one of their most successful shaft lines. The aesthetic design of AD IZ is direct: the branding is below the handle with a shift in the base color. Most players will recognize the shaft from Graphic Design due to its all-business look.     

Performance

Golfers can swing hard without “losing” the shaft, control the ball flight, and maintain near-optimal distance due to its stable tip. The Tour AD IZ has several options for weights and flexes. Engineers designed the IZ 65g and 75g shafts to promote Mid/High launch angles with Low/Mid ball spin rates. Thus, IZ 85g and 95g are for Mid launch angles with Low ball spin rates.
