Spotted: Aldila “Synergy” shafts, made with graphene

Published

on

Tour pros, especially with high swing speeds, often look to use the most stable shafts in their drivers to maximize performance off the tee. Thus, shaft manufacturers look to build shafts out of the strongest materials possible to produce that stability.

In its next-generation shafts called “Synergy” — which we spotted at the 2017 PGA Championship on Monday — Aldila is using a material called graphene. The company says that graphene is 20 times stronger than carbon fiber, which is commonly used in driver shafts.

“(Synergy is) the next generation brand featuring graphene technology,” a representative from Aldila told us. “Graphene is a pure form of carbon. It’s 20x stronger than carbon fiber strands.”

While we have seen the shaft pop up in our forums previously, the shaft will launch on Tour in the fall, according to Aldila.

Spotted: Callaway X Series drivers hit the USGA conforming clubs list

Published

on

As of Monday, Feb. 19, new Callaway X Series drivers (9.5 and 10.5 degrees) appear on the USGA Conforming Clubs list. Here is the full photo and description as they appear on the USGA website:

There’s not much to go on here based on the photo or description. All we know is that the drivers are called “X Series” and that there’s a Chevron alignment mark. Not very helpful.

What we can guess, however, is that these X Series drivers will be a follow-up to the company’s X Series 416 drivers, which were lower-end releases that focused on distance and forgiveness at a lower price point. The X Series 416 drivers had an adjustable hosel, while it appears the new X Series drivers do not.

What do you think about these new X Series drivers?
