Samir,

The graphite shaft that we developed for the driver encompasses all of the stability benefits of steel but with a much lighter weight resulting in increased swing speed and distance. You would benefit from our current graphite shafted model; however, we are coming out with a new forged titanium driver in a couple of months that will replace our current driver. The new driver has a 10.5º loft angle as compared to the 12º loft angle of our current driver that produces greater distance. This coupled with the graphite shaft would give you a big boost in your distance over our steel shafted model.

I see that you are bringing out a 10.5 degree driver. I have two 12 degree models in steel and graphite. Both excellent. How much will this new driver cost?

Stephen,

Our new driver coming out in late April/May will be priced at $399. It is a forged titanium driver.

Thank you for reply.

You have changed your tune of graphite v steel shafts. You have said in the past that steel shafts perform better than graphite.

Stephen,

That is correct. Steel outperformed graphite up until just a few years ago. It was then that we started developing our own graphite driver shaft that combines the lighter weight of graphite with the stability/consistency of steel.

Does that mean you will make irons and fairways with graphite shafts in the future?

Stephen,

We have no plans to do so currently.
