Many of you are familiar with the Synergy Tour shafts we have had. Those being the Synergy Black and Synergy Green Prototypes that have been so wildly popular here and were made for the PGA Tour. You also may be aware that these products contain Graphene. Below are some facts and links to information about graphene, as well as the original Synergy Black thread for any of you who are not caught up on the data and real world results from players about this technology and what it allows a shaft to do in terms of the spin/launch/feel correlation.

Ok, here is the finished Tour Proto version of Aldila's new Tour Only SYNERGY shaft. Below you will see Trackman data against the two lowest spin shafts that we have tested, that didn't hit 6 feet off the ground or feel like a telephone pole. As you can see, the Synergy is launching the same or higher, with incredibly low spin. How is it doing this? I don't exactly know, but it has to be the inclusion of graphene in the material construction. As it is a true Tour Proto, I don't have all the finite details on exactly how or where, but I can tell you it's the first graphite shaft using graphene and we have the data to prove the results. Below I have included a couple articles on graphene for the techies out there. Basically it's the strongest fiber ever tested and over 200 times stronger than steel.

Graphene info:

http://www.graphene....an-graphene-do/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphene

Synergy Black test and consumer thread:

http://www.golfwrx.c... synergy black


Now that you are up to speed on the technology and Synergy Tour series, it's time to introduce you all to the Aldila Tour Series for 2019. These shafts are just hitting Tour this week, and will not be available in standard retail capacity until around March or April of 2019. However, we at GGE, have them available NOW in 60, 70 and 80TX flexes.

What Aldila has done is taken all the technology and all the of the information they have received through Tour and independent testing and feedback, and both advanced and melded that technology into the 2019 Aldila Tour line. So basically all of you who have wanted Synergy Black or Green and can no longer get it, this is your solution. Aldila has transferred over everything they learned from the Synergy graphene technology, tweaked and advanced that technology, and put it entirely into this line.

60, 70, 80 TX flex Green
60, 70, 80 TX flex Blue
85, 95, 105 TX flex Black Hybrid

Price - $399
Hybrid Price - $180

What’s the actual weight of the 105TX hybrid shaft?  Is it comparable to the Tensei Pro White 100TX hybrid shaft?

Price point choice is so intriguing on “high end” shafts.  

I just can’t imagine there are enough people out there willing to spend so much on a shaft  to justify a $400 price point.

With that said...I guess there must be or they wouldn’t even bother to make them.  That’s Way too high for my gear head self.  I’m out.

Yes it is 103 grams, but this particular profile is more Tensei pro blue than white.

It's the evolution of the graphene tech. There are some differences as well as similarities. I'll post all that on Monday with the data.

It's not uncommon for us to sell a few hundred pieces of fresh new products. I have no idea what any other vendor does, but last calendar year we sold over 1500 individual shafts. I'd assume places like Club Champion do exponentially more than we do. Everyone has a different idea of what is economically viable to them. Some people drive Kia cars some drive Mercedes. Some guys play $3000 putters, some play $50 putters. It simply depends on the individual and if the technology is something they place value on. Neither is wrong or right and I would never advocate for someone to spend out of their means on anything.

What’s the difference between blue and green? Same as older blue/green series of shafts?

Looks great! I really wish I had an extra $800 sitting around so I could try the green 75 and blue 85. I wonder if TM will offer either of these when the new M5/M6 comes out.

From what I understand these won't even be available after market retail until well into 2019. I'd doubt you'd see them as an upgrade option in anything for a good year.

Makes total sense. I remember when the rogue first came out and I wanted one real bad. OEMs didn’t get them for at least 18 months after they hit retail

Thankfully these aren't $699 or whatever the retail was to begin with on the 125!

FYI guys, we are down to less than 8 pieces of each weight and flex, with no more on the way until around Christmas time.

Not that I know of. These are Tour protos, which is normally where you would find the 90's, but at this point there are none in either color. That said, we do have 90TX Pro Orange in stock if that may interest you.
