MAXIMUS = This brand new long-drive shaft will be arriving in June 2019. This shaft was developed for us by JOHN OLDENBURG, the new shaft designer at LA GOLF SHAFTS. John is possibly the most renowned shaft designer in the world, having designed the shafts that have won more than twenty major golf titles. This shaft will initially be offered in X/255-cpm, XX+/270-cpm, and XXXX/285-cpm flexes with the weight running at 64-66-68/grams respectively. The shaft is expected to be strong from butt-to-tip. It is a frim tip-section with the torque lowered down to 2.2 for stability and a solid feel at impact. The initial prototype testing showed increases of 2-to-3/mph in ball-speed with spin-rates lowered by 100-to-300/rpm for top competitors.
