The new Creation shaft by AccuFLEX features a unique long "butt"
parallel section that tapers quickly in the bottom portion of the shaft.

The Long "butt" taper stores the created energy longer, while the quick
taper at the end acts as a "hinge" that enables optimal unloading of the
shaft at impact, creating a
higher launch angle, with decreased back spin.  This new shaft profile,
combined with
our proprietary NANOMET technology, NanoMetal Polymer Composites, allows us
to push
the shaft design limits, with precise weight distribution and variable
bending properties
throught the shafts profile, to accomplish a super stable shaft that has
unmatched feel, dispersion and distance producing characteristics.


Above is the quote i got from Accuflex!

First time I see this shaft in my hand, I notice that fat butt section goes all the way to about a little more than half way to the tip. Looking at that, i knew that this shaft will be a stable shaft and hits the ball higher. I admits that i though it's gonna be a butt stiff shaft,  i was wrong on that one. I think this one had something to do w/ their pin point the variable bending properties design. They basically can stiffen or soften the shaft area that will maximize  the performance and at the same time doesn't give up the feel.

Anyway, I proceed to put it on my tour issue head 9.5* at 45" D2 sw X flex no tipping...spined and flo'ed of course.

At 1st I was scared that the shaft it's gonna be to stiff, Nope! I was wrong. For my 108-110 mph swing speed this shaft is perfect.

This shaft has an awesome ION plated paint job, no doubt!  

Ball flight is high enough but never seen a balloon one. Definitely come out hot from the face due to the unload movement of the shafts. The fat butt area make this shaft feel so stable through out the swing. This shaft feels smooth through out the swing and no doubt it has a lot of feel to it.

I was doing all this w/ my launch monitor turn on through out the process before and after. I notice that this set up gives me a better consistentcy in catching it on the sweet spot and ball flight pattern. Lower my spin rate a bit but not by much ( my style of swing produce a low spin already ).

IMO, The biggest thing that made me hitting the club better is that this shaft gives me a ton of feel to give me a better consistency on my swing.

Longer distance? May be not by much but definitely give me a better statistic.  I may have to play it at the course that i know in and out to be able to tell how far i gain w/ this shaft. So far i only have a chance to play it 3 rounds.

So In conclusion, IMO The quote above are pretty damn close to my observation after testing this shaft.

Note: I'm comparing this shaft w/ the shaft that a lot of OEM put it in their clubs. Please don't make me say what brand was that. To many shafts out there to compare but yet it's all depends on the golfer it self and working together w/ a fitter to get the right shaft for their swing and game.

Again! This is just my observation according to my skill and swing characteristic.

Regards,

Joe

I don't think it's a good idea to throw out pricing on public for this type of shaft.

You can email me to jwk.golf@gmail.com for quotation and let me ask my contact to find a few.

From me and you need to send me a complete address to my email for me to be able to give you a quotation includes shipping.

Again, I can't promise you guys how many i can get, but i'll do my best.

THX!

Silver ION is 65 grams, 46", (High Launch/Mid-Low Spin), 3.2* torque
RustCopper ION is 80 grams, 46" (Mid-High Launch/Low Spin), 2.9* torque

I believe that the price is to be right around $400.

I met Sean "The Beast" Fister the other day. He was in town on a promotional tour for Dunlop. He had both of the Creation shafts in two of the drivers in his bag. The distance he generated was amazing; he carries the ball 360! This in very humid conditions with a slight cross wind.

I got a good deal on my Creation and have used it on four occasions, the feel is amazing, much better than any shaft I have ever used. The accuracy of it, even when I don't put a good swing on it is still very good. I have driven a few shortish par fours already, so when the better weather comes, and the groung hardens up, it should be even better, due to it's low spin rate. My only concern with it is, I just can't draw the ball like I normally do, I think this could maybe because it's a little stiff for me, but who cares about a draw when the ball goes so far with a slight fade. Given a little more time to get used to it, I can see me loving this shaft for a long time to come.

I might be intrested in one of these shafts. I am looking for a mid flight shaft for my taylormade R9 460 tp with a fubuki shaft now. My ball flight is way too high for my liking. Any help on mid flight shafts would help.
