Iíve been fortunate enough to hear some rumors about these new protos thatís have gotten me really excited. Not many people know that LAGP has hired John Oldenberg, the incredible shaft designer who created both the Aldila Rogue series as well as the Mitsubishi Tensei line. Thatís pretty darn incredible for a small, startup company who bought Matrix out of bankruptcy in an effort to ressurect the Ozik and Altus lines with newer, more modern materials and at lower price points (THDE was $1k now in the $600 range under LAGP) along when a wave of groundbreaking new prototypes. Iím told the shaft they launched at Torrey has a very stiff mid section which is the opposite of most current shafts out there. The only other manufacturer thatís taken this approach is TPT and they have seen success so far. They are going after that same design language but maintaining more feel through Zylon like Matrix had utilized in the past. Iím told this shaft is not for the weak or weakery but they have a handful of other prototypes launching this week at Riv and later in the year, that with player feedback, they plan to tweak the final design to get it perfect and then move to production. I canít wait to get my hands on a few to try out!

I am very interested as well. I have a black tie in my driver and a white tie in my 3 wood and I love them. To see them come out with a new lineup would be cool to test out
DRIVER-  Cobra LTD (Ozik Black Tie)
3 WOOD- Cobra Fly-Z (Ozik White Tie)
HYBRID-  Cobra Bio Cell (19* Project X)
IRONS- Cobra Pro CB 2008 (Soft stepped PX6.0)
GAP- Vokey SM4 50*
SAND- Vokey SM5 54* S grind
LOB- Vokey SM5 58* S grind
PUTTER-  Odyssey O-works 1W red
BALL-   Titleist TourSoft

Actually a stiffer mid section has been a staple of the UST shaft lineup and they made a point of this specifically in the Elements line of shafts back from around 2013.  There are only so many ways a shaft profile can be built and nothing with bend profile is really "new".  What goes around eventually comes back around but with better marketing.

"UST’s proprietary research has uncovered new data that says that the oft-overlooked mid-section of the shaft is the most important for spin and launch.  Armed with this knowledge, they set about designing a series of shafts, Elements Earth, Fire, and Wind, that offer different feels of launch characteristics while all utilizing a stable mid-section."

"The research to isolate the benefits of Mid-Flex Stability has led to the design and extension of the mid-section profile to enhance performance, reduce dispersion and increase ball speed. The result is longer, straighter and more accurate shots!"

I hadnít seen this published before, but thanks for sharing. I donít really think itís much Marketing on LAGPís side of things as theyíve literally done none. Perhaps youíre speaking more towards TPTís stance? Despite the inaccuracy of this being a newer design approach, I donít think it takes away from what LAGP is doing with only this first prototype which is one of 3-4 they are currently working on. I know several guys like the Elements and TPT shafts, so I think itís an appropriate segment for them to target for one of their profiles because they can see it being adopted by guys. I for one am excited to get my hands on one at some point and see what they can do because Iíve been a longtime Matrix user in the past.

I'm not knocking the new graphics, but I miss that old Matrix candy red.

My guess is those are just the proto graphics. They may change for a retail release. They also provide complete custom colorization for the main shaft color, logo color and shaft finish at literally ZERO UPCHARGE. This is basically unheard of in my experience. I remember the BSG days when you could pay an upcharge and get the custom candy colored Matrix shafts. I was playing around with the configurator on their website the other day, itís pretty fun. In my opinion, this is really the future of premium shafts because as we know, very rarely does everyone love whatever graphics a company chooses to use.

Hereís the link if anyone wants to mess around with it:

LA Golf Shafts

Tour Prototype OLYSS RSC 75-TX


The LA Golf shafts Tour Prototype OLYSS RSC 75-TX is designed incorporating an overall flex profile that has proven to be extremely successful with tour caliber players for many years.  Utilizing a constant taper physical profile gives the new prototype a feel of smooth, controlled loading and release.  With low torque (2.8 degrees) and a mid-stiff tip section, the new OLYSS prototype will yield a low-mid ball flight with low spin for elite golfers with moderate to high ball speeds.  The modern trend for today’s professional player is higher and higher club head velocity at impact with a resulting increase in ball speed.  To maintain stability and control for the modern high ball speed player, tour shaft overall stiffnesses have increased significantly over the past 5 to 10 years.  This increase in stiffness does help to provide additional stability but can also impart an undesirable harsh feel to the shaft at impact.  To counteract this effect, the new OLYSS prototype, incorporates a unique, high-tech, composite material in the grip end of the shaft.  This new, never before used material, is an ultra-lightweight, thin ply composite weave combining high modulus graphite with Zylon fibers.  The combination of the stiff, high strength, carbon fibers with lightweight, ultra-strong, high damping Zylon provides the shaft with significantly increased stability in the players hands and outstanding feel at impact. The rearward placement of the new material also aids to counterbalance the shaft, making it perfect for todays heavier driver heads.  LA Golf Shafts new OLYSS RSC 75-TX prototype gives the modern bomber the stiffness and stability they need with tremendous feel, a smooth load and release, and an optimized low-mid launch, low spin launch profile.
