Graphite Design announces YS NanoReloaded shafts

Published

on

Graphite Design is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a new shaft that blends technologies from two of its most successful design.

Golfers familiar with the company’s shafts likely know about its Tour AD line, which launched in 2010 with the still popular Tour AD-DI model. Graphite Design has since followed up on the DI’s success with its Tour AD-MT, AD-GT, AD-BB and AD-DJ, to name a few, each of which has its own unique bend profile to help golfers dial in the best trajectory for them.

The new YS NanoReloaded shaft, which will be available in stores on Nov. 1, uses the same nano-alloy material technology that has fueled the popularity of the Tour AD series. Its bend profile, according to Bill McPherson, vice president of sales for Pro’s Choice Shafts, is similar to the company’s YS shaft that was introduced in 1999 and re-released with refreshed graphics in 2005 with the name YS+.

The YS was known for its smooth feel and its ability to fit a wide range of golfers. The addition of Graphite Design’s nano-alloy material technology allowed engineers to maintain the feel for which the YS shafts are known while adding more stability, particularly to the tip and butt sections of the shaft. That allows the shafts to perform better in today’s metal wood designs.

The YS NanoReloaded shafts ($269) will be available in three weights: 50 grams, 60 grams and 70 grams in L, A, R, S and X flexes. They’ll also be available for hybrids in 70- and 80-gram models (R, S and X flexes) that will sell for $129.
