    First look OLYSS

    From Oly regarding this shaft: "Another prototype weve testing has been put in play by Jason Dufner. Since putting this shaft in play, his driving distance and accuracy have increased tremendously. He lead the field in driving accuracy at the Memorial and was 3rd in accuracy at the US Open, hitting 82% of the fairways in a tight Open setup. This new shaft, code named OLYSS (OLY Signature Series, Oly is my industry nickname), is a mid/low launch, low spin product. It has a straight taper profile from the very butt end down to the tip, to provide exceptional feel. In short: OLYSS (offered in 75-S, 75-X, 65-R, 65-S, 65-X, 55-R, 55-S) mid launch, low spin, softer feel."


    I plan on putting this shaft into my Epic Flash. I have been playing the HZRDUS Smoke 70g 6.5 and find this shaft to be a little soft at times, so it will be interesting to see how this one performs against the Smoke. The Smoke is still a very low/low shaft, so hopefully I can see a mid launch and flat trajectory out of the OLYSS.

    No idea what all this means. Uploaded so JB, JMan, and the rest if the staff can take a crack at solving it.

    Yep - it has this going on too - so that should help. :)

    The graphics are very conservative and black all the way until about midway trough the labeling where it turns slightly clear and you can see the graphite weave. Classic look!!

        Looks like those are formulas for shaft engineering. I have no idea the exact meaning but I could give a good guess..? Sounds like an email question for John.

                  I like the red LAGP logo standing out by itself from a distance. Very cool logo IMO. Im going to start watching for these on tour.

                    Adapter installed. I will get a grip on it today and then maybe get out tomorrow to see how she performs.

                          Oly recommended no tip trimming for me, so I am following his advice.
