New 2014: Graphite Design G-Series Iron:
The G Series Iron shaft with X Directional Technology (XDT) is the next generation of premium Graphite Design shafts and is designed to be very adaptable to today’s vast iron head technology. The G Series Iron shafts performance characteristics favor a mid launch trajectory and low/mid ball spin and are available in a unitized .370” tip OD shaft configuration. The weights available are 73 grams in Athletic, Regular and Stiff flexes, 83 grams in Regular, Stiff and X-Stiff flexes and 93 grams in Regular, Stiff and X-Stiff flexes.
