35 wins

These recent wins results in a total of 35 global professional tour wins for a Graphite Design brand model shaft for the season.

The Tour AD BB “Blue Bullet” wood shaft model is designed to promote a low/mid launch angle and lower ball spin.  Designed and manufactured exclusively at the Graphite Design factory headquarters in Japan, the Tour AD BB is available in 50g R2(Lite), R1(Regular) and S flex, 60g SR(Stiff Regular), S and X flex, 70g S and X flex and 80g S and X flex.

The Tour AD BB wood shafts utilize premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials to provide the best performing shaft available as well as the Toray Company’s 1st generation of NANOALLOY material technology known as “DI Technology” in the tip section of the shaft.  The Tour AD BB design features an increase in stiffness from the tip to the mid-section resulting in a higher kick point for lower launch angles.  The end result is a tighter shot pattern and an increase in ball speed.

The Tour AD GP wood shafts are made with premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials in order to deliver the best feeling and performing shaft available to golfers.  The Tour GP-4’s are unique and designed for a player that is looking for a light weight shaft with a soft tip to butt profile that will help launch the ball higher.  The Tour AD GP-5’s, 6’s, 7’s and 8’s are designed with a very stiff tip and stiffer mid to butt section to promote a mid-launch condition and low spin.

The Tour AD GP also utilizes the latest in graphite material from Toray Industries, Inc., TORAYCA ® T1100G carbon-fiber pre-preg with NANOALLOY ® technology in the tip section of the shaft for additional shaft stability, exceptional feel and precise ball control.
