Spotted: True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT shafts

Published

on

True Temper’s Dynamic Gold AMT shafts are designed with what the company is calling “ascending mass technology,” creating a set of iron shafts that gets progressively heavier as golfers move from their long irons to wedges.

The 3-iron shaft is the lightest in the set, and each subsequent shaft gets three grams heavier as the set progresses. That results in wedge shafts that weigh between 125 and 130 grams, depending on flex, which is the standard weight of True Temper’s most popular Dynamic Gold iron shafts: R300, S300 and X100.

[quote_box_center]What we found, particularly in the longer irons, is that they launched a little higher just by virtue of the increased speed [from lighter weight],” said Chad Hall, True Temper’s Vice President of Global Sales. “That’s true for most players. From a wedge perspective, you’re talking about the same exact performance.” [/quote_box_center]

The AMT shafts use the company’s variable wall technology (VWT), which allows engineers to manipulate the wall thicknesses throughout the entirety of a shaft to reach the desired weight. They still maintain what Hall called the “Dynamic Gold DNA,” however, meaning that they offer a very similar balance point and trajectory as the original models.

Hall expects the new shafts to be popular with better golfers, including tour players, as well as golfers who felt the Dynamic Gold shafts were too heavy for them to be effective in their long and mid irons.

The Dynamic Gold AMT is a tour-only product at this point with no immediate plans for release. Golfers should expect to see them in stores in 2016, Hall said.

    i just think they have too many S200 and dynalite shafts they need to get rid of.

    What’s the difference in these and the “DG PRO” ..”Progressive” ..starts at 125g in the wedge and drops 3 grams per club to the 3 iron at around 100ish..kick point gets progressively lower from wedge to long iron .. Or is the white label Tour issue also descends in weight but maintains the same kick ??

      The DG Pro is really like the flighted PX shafts, where as the weight is pretty close, but the flight is not. These don’t mention anything about flight, but the assumption is it would be similar as a lighter shaft in the longer irons may produce higher shots.

      If they put the PRO and AMT in a room together with some Barry White, you might have the ultimate shaft; progressive weighting getting heavier for the shorter clubs and having higher launching long irons with more piercing short irons.

    So basically this is the same idea as the Ping AWT shafts from a couple years back

    So would I be correct on assuming these are parallel tip?

      No, they would be tapered so as to fit OEM iron heads

    I rather go and get MOI fitted by a professinal club maker/fitter. But who am I to judge!? Golf and feeling is highly individual, TT DG AMT might be a great success…. 🙂

    It basically pretends to be an MOI-matched built set of irons.

    So am I wrong in thinking that these are a kinda flighted lighter DG, like an ascending weighted Tour Concept?

    This shaft sounds like a comeback of the True Temper Tri-Gold shaft from the 1990’s. That shaft had ascending weight and progressive bend point. It was a very good shaft but never really caught on.
