Spotted: True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 wedge shafts

Published

on

We spotted new True Temper Dynamic Gold 115 wedge shafts at the 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic. The shafts, which are likely to measure around 115 grams based on the nomenclature, are designed as lightweight options for golfers who are already playing lightweight irons shafts, according to a True Temper representative.

As iron shafts are trending lighter in today’s game — even on the professional ranks — it’s only right that shaft companies offer lighter-weight wedge shafts to help bridge the gap in weight between irons and wedges. True Temper itself recently released Dynamic Gold 120 shafts for those who want a lighter feel, but still want the classic True Temper performance.

According to True Temper, the Dynamic Gold 115 shafts will be for those who have iron shafts measuring under 110 grams.

“The DG 115 wedges are for players using lighter weight iron shafts (<110gr) that want DG performance but don’t want to have the large shaft weight gap to standard DG,” said a True Temper representative in our forums.

    I guess I am missing something with this article and your comment about heavier graphite shafts. Where in the article does it mention these are made from graphite? They look to be stepped steel to me.

    Seems like True Temper playing catch up and copying some of what Nippon has to offer. This looks really close to the Nippon 115 wedge shaft. Also funny how True Temper released the Dynamic Gold 120, much like the Modus Tour 120 which has been available for a couple years, bet the profile is pretty similar as well. Innovation at its best by the top steel shaft company in the country.

    Well you keep asking questions, and that’s good, that you show how very little you really know.
    Graphite shafts a scam? What an eejit comment. Lets see you fit my 75 year old mother with the old DG S300 steel shafts in her driver and compare that to the new 35 gram graphite shaft and see which one she can swing the best. Got it? See, there is no scam. You’re just clueless. Very disrespectful and childish, you are.

      By only looking at Tour players and your better players you are only looking at a VERY small sample size of the entire golf market. For a lot of aging golfers (which are keeping the golf industry alive) graphite is a necessity., not only for its lightweight properties which allow them to achieve more distance with their slower swing speeds but also for the vibration reduction properties which helps relieve pain in their hands on every shot they hit.

      Even looking at better golfers, all the way up to tour players, Sneds and Kuch both play graphite iron shafts in a middleweight class with the Aerotech SteelFiber 95cw shafts. Although a compromise between full graphite and full steel shafts, the Aerotech provides different launch characteristics that fit these players swings the best.

Latrobe: Toulon Golf launches its latest Small Batch putter

Published

on

Toulon Golf’s latest Small Batch offering is inspired by Arnold Palmer’s iconic 8802-shape putter. It is bestowed the name “Latrobe” owing to the birthplace of the king — Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

The Small Batch Latrobe follows the Small Batch Dogwood, Montecito, Vista, Sea Island, and Santa Monica in Toulon Golf’s release of limited offerings.

In launching the putter, Toulon conceded the difficulty of designing and milling the iconic sleek flowing hosel design. The team went through several rounds of designing and prototyping to “get it just right” so the neck melts into the head.

In refining the design for modern use, Toulon points out that green speeds in 1964 were substantially slower — and the putter heads were substantially lighter. To better navigate today’s faster greens, Toulon and company increased the headweight to a modern 355 grams via a tungsten sole plate. For reference, the original 8802 was 310 grams.

Toulon Golf paid particular attention to crafting the flowing look of the putter from address with a particular focus on topline thickness and radius. In keeping with the original 8802 design, no alignment marks are present.
