Accra launches new GX wood and hybrid shafts

Published

on

Accra Golf shafts have long been synonymous with fitting, and the new GX line of driver, fairway, and hybrid shafts continues that legacy.

Since 2004, Accra has been making high-end performance golf shafts that use the latest in materials and design philosophy. Their group of around 350 fitters are some of the best and most highly ranked in the world. While you might see other brands on professional tours more often, there are plenty of touring pros using Accra products and winning.

Accra’s new GX line of shafts is designed to offer a consistent and accurate shaft to a wide range of players. The GX line consists of 3 different shafts in driver, fairway, and hybrid designs.

The Accra GX shafts are designed for fitters to dial in golfers to the perfect shaft for their swing. Accra included a ton of technology into the GX line including their S3 profiling, DyMatch, and Constant Flex technology. DyMatch has been Accra’s quest to ensure that all shafts in a family feel and perform similar from driver to hybrid or iron shaft. Typically shafts get stiffer as they go up in weight, but Accra’s Constant Flex keeps the flex of the shafts consistent so fitters and golfers can dial in the weight that the golfer need without have to work around a stiffer or softer flex. Accra worked with Cool Clubs to build out its S3 Shaft Profiling system that not only allows a quick and easy EI profile of any shaft, it helps with quality control to ensure shafts come out of production exactly as they were designed.

Accra GX Red 300 Series

GX Red is lowest launching and spinning option in the GX line. Driver shafts have fewer options with just the 360 and 370 models that come in at 63 and 71 grams. The GX Red is made for faster swinging, or stronger, players who require a stiff (M4) or x-stiff (M5) shaft for their swing. Fairway and hybrid models are also on the higher weight side with the fairway clocking in at 80g and 90g for the hybrid. Accra designed this series with one of the stiffest tip sections of any Accra shaft in the current line, and while it is built to control launch and spin, the Red 300 Series will still offer that smooth feel.

Accra GX Green 100 Series

If your swing usually works best with mid-launch and spin, then the GX Green 200 series might be the right shaft for you. Offered in more weight and flex options, you can get a GX Green in 52 grams and all the way up to 70 grams in regular, stiff, and x-stiff flexes. GX Green will give the player a smooth feel and transition from the handle down to the tip section while still providing great stability and consistency. Accra also focused on the energy transfer of this shaft, and golfers can see some increased ball speed compared to other shafts.

Accra GX Blue 200 Series

While the GX Blue 100 Series is the highest launching and spinning option in the GX lineup, it will still give golfers the control and consistency they need. Starting off at 40g, the GX Blue series puts an emphasis on lighter weight to allow players to swing the club faster, promoting more distance. Accra touts the stability of the GX 140 Blue driver shaft by stating that some long driver competitors have put it in play to try and gain every MPH they can. Matching fairway and hybrid shafts are both on the lighter side at around 60g for the fairway and 65g for the hybrid depending on the flex.

    Soft.
    Way too much torque.
    Obviously TrueTemper has tampered with this and no longer are the old Accra the way they used to be

Wilson launches Staff Model RB Utility iron

Published

on

Designed to give golfers a versatile option in the gap between the fairway woods and long irons, Wilson today announced its new, hybrid-alternative, better-player-focused Staff Model RB utility in three loft offerings (18, 21, and 24 degrees).

Drawing on Wilson Advisory Staff member input (including Padraig Harrington, who is gaming the club), the RB is crafted with a thin topline and sleek look favored by better players. Engineers strategically distributed weight to the toe and sole of the club in this “mid-to-low” CG club for greater resistance to twisting and improved forgiveness.

Additionally, the high-strength C300 maraging steel-face club is hollow-bodied for greater ball speed and aerodynamics. Engineers strategically placed rib structures within the head for better stability, and thus performance, on mishits. Perhaps most interestingly to WRXers, Wilson mentions this improves acoustics on the hollow-bodied (and non-foam-filled) design.

“The professional athletes and elite amateurs with whom we tested all commented on its amazing  soft feel at impact and optimized ball flight,” said Bob Thurman, Global General Manager of Golf  and Vice President of Research & Development at Wilson. “We feel we created something special for  golfers in search of that easy-to-hit distance club.” 

Pricing, specs, availability

Price: $249.99

Lofts: 18, 21, 24 degrees

At retail: July 9

Stock shaft: Project X HZRDUS GEN 4 Black
