We're looking for 4 GolfWRX Members to test their new Graphite Design MAD shafts. Want to be part of the test? Read how below.

ABOUT GRAPHITE DESIGN MAD SHAFTS:
The team in the R&D lab at Graphite Design Japan went all out when designing the new Graphite Design MAD wood shafts. A challenge was issued to them to design a shaft that would alleviate the ill-fated golf ball flight issues that results in a lack of Maximum Accuracy and Distance. Accepting the challenge, they went to work in an effort to develop a cure.

The new Graphite Design MAD shaft is their response. Available in two strengths, the Graphite Design MAD Standard strength wood shafts are available in a 45g A and R Flex, 55g R and S Flex, 65g R and S Flex and a 70g S Flex and is designed for the intermediate to advanced players.
The Graphite Design MAD PRO strength wood shafts are available in 65g S and X Flex and 75g X Flex and is designed for the advanced to professional players with higher swing speeds.

Make an appointment with your local professional golf club fitter and request that he write you a prescription for a new Graphite Design MAD shaft to cure your ball flight issues that may be holding you back from achieving Maximum Accuracy and Distance.

  • What shaft do you currently play now? Graphite Desgin GP 6tx playing at 45 with a half inch extension to reach that length.
  • If selected, do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing / review thread?  We ask that you provide hi-res, quality photos, and provide a review of the shaft. NOTE: You are responsible for supplying the driver head.
  • YES!

  • Desired shafts. Info needed: MAD PRO 6X
    • Weight - 65g
    • Flex - X
    • Adapter - TM
    • Grip - GP Tour Velvet 2 wraps
    • Total Driver Length - 45.25
  • Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts - I would test against my current GD shaft. I have a unlimited pass to an indoor sim so I would first get numbers on launch angle, spin rate, side spin, accuracy, distance, and anything else to compare the two. I would then take it to the course and play at least 5 rounds before getting an idea of what I think. I play several times a week and have been playing my current shaft for a little over a year so I have a good idea of the flex and feel of the shaft. My gamer shaft has also been PURED.

    • I will give my brief opinion on aesthetics. The main focus of the review will be performance-based both from data on either flightscope or trackman on the range and visual/feel observations on the range and course. My main source of comparison will be my current gamer, the Hzrdus Yellow 65 6.5. I will also have a Kuro Kage Dual Core Gold 7TX but as that shaft is in a Ping G400 LST, it is more of a feel test.

Please explain briefly how you would approach testing these shafts: There will be lots of range testing, against my whole arsenal of Project X HZRDUS Handcrafted (Black, Yellow, Red and T1100) as well both Black and Blue Even Flow Handcrafted. IN addition to launch data, I will be playing close attention on feel and control. Those are not things that can be measured by any machine but are critical to the success of a shaft for a player. If it survived the range test, I would have to see if it can perform up to expectation on the course in real life.

Total Driver Length 45.5”

I would do multiple range sessions as well as multiple rounds against my Accra T60, Accra FX-150, Accra AC55, and my Project X even flow blue65 to see if the MAD 65r is right for me. I swing fairly flat and need the high ball flight and spin to offset the swing flaws I possess. I truly appreciate the opportunity

Then i would see if i could work the ball. after that i would take it to the course and play.
