Don Brown, product developed for True Temper, knows that the Grafalloy Blue shaft isn’t for all golfers. In fact, he even estimated about 80 percent of the golfers were not upset when it was discontinued in 2011.
But the 20 percent of golfers who fit into the Blue were a vocal minority.
“We discontinued it a few years ago and we got inundated with phone calls, ‘I want a Blue. Where can I get a Blue?” Brown said.
Recently, True Temper decided to re-release its “cult favorite” shaft with some minor alterations. One obvious alteration is the color. It has been painted white instead of blue because of the color’s popularity, Brown said.
There are also some adjustments made to the manufacturing of the shaft, which is now made with higher-grade materials to make it more stable. It also features True Temper’s Speed Coat technology to improve aerodynamics, which True Temper says can bring faster club head speeds.
The shaft comes in both a 60-gram and 75-gram versions, and is available in R Flex, S Flex or X Flex. It retails for about $80.
