FTT – Fast Taper Technology

The new 2019 Tour AD VR and Tour AD TP shaft models both utilize the Graphite Design advanced technology called Fast Taper Technology or FTT .  This technology is based on the tooling called the mandrel that the shaft is molded around.  The Fast Taper Technology incorporates a faster taper rate in a specific section of the mandrel used to create a unique shaft profile.  The Fast Taper Technology of the Tour AD VR shaft starts in the handle or grip section and extends to the lower-mid section of the shaft.  The FastTaper Technology of the Tour AD TP shafts starts in the lower mid-section and extends down to the tip of the shaft.  The end result of using the Fast Taper Technology is the overall feeling of greater club head control at impact and an increase in club head speed through the swing.
